It's very interesting to see this thread pop back up on Page 1 here because recently I been in touch with 2 different distant cousins who have been going to Yosemite for years and who are related to my great grand mother, Hattie Muth McCoy from whose family photo album I posted here:
When I first met the 2 cousins nearly a year ago, we decided to stay in touch, and I invited them to come to Facelift this year which they did! Lisa and I spent 2 days with them picking up trash and enjoying each other's company immensely. It is Eric Egli who is my 3rd cousin, I think, and his wife Peggy keeps tabs on the Muth family tree.
Below is a pic of (right to Left) Lisa, Eric, Peggy, and BooDawg.
L to R: BooDawg, Peggy and Eric Egli, and Lisa
And here is one of Eric and Peggy during one of the raffles.

Here's my grandmother, Ida McCoy, from her mother, Hattie Muth McCoy's photo album.
