Relationships That Are Not Stated

I recently found an affidavit witnessed by an ancestor in Nebraska in the 1880s. In looking at the names of the other four witnesses on the document, they included the uncle of the ancestor, a first cousin of the ancestor and the wife of the first cousin. And the person who made out the affidavit was another cousin of the ancestor.

If you are really stuck, have you really looked at the names of other people on every document in which your ancestor appears?
