Does this Count as Genealogy Serendipity?

Two and a half weeks ago I made a post transcribing a letter to a Mrs. John E. Long of El Dorado, Kansas from the federal government about her great-grandfather Charles Moore.  The letter is dated August 17, 1927, and I found it on Ancestry.Com.

I just put two and two together.  Mrs. John E. Long is my great-grand aunt Jennie Mariam Long (nee. Hall, 1879-1968), sister to my great-grandmother Elsie Rue (Hall) Surpluss.

The coincidence came out of nowhere.
