We are very distant cousins, then. Frederick Law Olmsted descends from James Olmsted (d. 1640), and we descend from James' brother Richard, whose son Richard (b. 1612) came over on the same boat as his uncle your ancestor in 1632. I have a 1st edition of Olmsted's Walks and Talks of an American Farmer in England that was owned by our family in obvious pride of their association with your cousin.

INterested in your Olmsted story. Frederick Law Olmsted is one of my cousins, actually lived with my family to learn farming in Cheshire, CT. My disc on the family is not with me right now, so not sure if your Olmsted fits in with mine.
