My father-in-law and my son's father-in-law were first cousins. I knew that there was a relationship between my husband and daughter-in-law, but I thought it was a distant one, since their families both lived on Pelee Island and they say everybody from the island is related.
It wasn't until a few weeks ago when my daughter-in-law shared some pictures on Facebook that I realized how they were related. she posted a photo of her great-grandparents and they were Charles and Alzina Bradt, my husband's great-grandparents! My grandchildren are related to me by marriage as well.
