Not confused at all sweetie. In Marion Ohio these people would be complete strangers. In my mothers family, I have a third cousin by blood named Babette (maternal father's side, blood cousins - same 3X great grandfather), however Babette and Share the same Aunt (sister of her mother) and Uncle (brother of my mother), and therefore share the same first cousins. Now those first cousins and Babette are maternal first cousins with one and other, but they are also paternal third cousins.

So this Joanne Dru, John Ireland, Tommy Noonan and Peter Marshal thing is simple!

Still confused. Did John Ireland and Peter Marshal ever sleep with one another and is there photographic evidence?

I've heard rumors that John Ireland was a "big" star in Hollywood.

It really is a small town.

Dack Rambo & Dirk Rambo were twins & Stallone made a movie called Rambo. Eerie.

Ann Blth was Dennis Day's siter-in-law. I did a play with Dennis Day's daughter. I did not sleep with John Ireland.
