Re: Earliest ancestor question
In Response To: Re: Earliest ancestor question ()
Actually, I was just curious. My family is from VA and my husband's is from VA and NC. He has done DNA testing and knows that he is 14% NA, but I don't have enough information to find his or my family on the rolls. I have have information on his family back to the early 1800s, but can't seem to close that gap between the census, the rolls and what family members might have migrated out of NC and VA and to where. Some of his family members carry the Weaver and Collins surnames. Part if my family is also out of TN, but the oldest relative that I have traced was born in 1852. I think his father's name was John McKenzie. I have found the McKenzie name on the rolls, but don't know if they are my family. I also have a McCaleb connection and that surname is on the rolls as well as my DNA matches, Ashley, Cantrell, Brim, Garrett, Powell, Phillips, Walker, and Bennett. Records containing information around the early 1800s seem to be the road block.
