A couple of relatives share a good 40+cM segment with a 1/2 3C1R . She wasn't even on my radar when she popped up as a very weak match on the first kits I manage (even with a family name I know, but on her tree the location was too vague)

The relative with the 44cM+ segment did comment that maybe they got more from this line. I wouldn't draw that conclusion. All it means is that they and the 1/2 3C1R got the SAME segment from their mutual gtgtgt-grandfather (and a 4C got most of it too). Other descendants most likely have similar amounts from the mutual ancestor. Just not ones that match so well.
