Distant Cousin

From a recent Church News:

Alan Roy Maynes, 59, and Laurie Afton Christensen Maynes, seven children, [called to serve beginning July 1 as President of the] Colorado Denver South Mission; [from] Gordon Creek Ward, Helper Utah Stake. Brother Maynes serves as a stake president and is a former counselor in stake presidencies, bishop and missionary in the Ireland Mission. Retired area director, Seminaries and Institutes of Religion. Born in Murray, Utah, to Roy Godfrey and Carol Rhoda Daw Maynes.

Sister Maynes is a former counselor in ward Relief Society presidencies, ward Primary teacher, chorister and pianist and stake family history consultant. Born in Roosevelt, Utah, to Dean Christian and Luella Afton Nielson Christensen.

Looks like he is my third cousin coming from Joseph Watson Maynes, the brother of John Alexander Maynes II. Joseph and John II, both returned to England to serve missions in the 1910's and both died while on their missions at ages 53 and 55 respectively.
