My 8th Cousin, Charles Thomas "Charlie" Munger (1924-2023) Died

I like to determine if I am related to a famous person who recently passed away.  Today, it's Charles Thomas "Charlie" Munger (1924-2023) who died on 28 November 2023.  

Charlie was Warren Buffett's right-hand man and confidante at Berkshire Hathaway, and an investment genius (see here and here).

Cousin Charlie (I never met him...) was my 8th cousin, according to the FamilySearch Family Tree.  Here is the relationship chart:

Our closest common ancestors are Jonathan Thurston (1659-1740) and Sarah --?-- (1659-c1711), my 7th great-grandparents.  Another set of common ancestors are my 8th great-grandparents, Edward Richmond (1658-1743) and Sarah --?-- (1664-????).

Apparently, I'm not related to Henry Kissinger, who also died in the last week.
