Glad we got that sorted!
How do you think you are related then?
Did someone emigrate to the usa from Capt Bligh's family then?

My mother is Jacqueline Dariel Bligh of Regina Saskatchewan.. an only child.. her father Clarence Rockwell Bligh was Deputy Police Chief of Regina until retirement late 60's.. my grandfather.. he gave my mother ancestral papers indicating he descends from Captain Bligh's brother.. I will get hold of these papers ASAP because I want information about this brother and other siblings.. very hard to find on internet and write ups.. but yes indeed.. it does seem that this is where the branch of our family tree comes from.. grandpa married Evelyn Shick of German descent.. both are deceased now.. please respond if you are still interested.. thank you

Clarence Rockwell Bligh was my uncle. So I guess you are my second cousin.
