Here again are the charts that show how I'm related to each of these men.
In the case of James Ripley Osgood Perkins, I'm a cousin connected to Deborah Lovejoy, wife of John Phelps. As we see in the chart for James Ripley Osgood, I'm connected this time through the same John Phelps, husband of Deborah Lovejoy! I love discovering these kinds of connections. Who would have ever thought one cousin was named after another cousin from separate families back in Boston in the late 1800s. Thank you, Kate, for alerting me to this news source! I never dreamed I'd get my questions answered so quickly.
