A lot of my interest in testing began at the beginning of the commercial use for genealogy because I wanted to prove American Indian Ancestry. My dad said he wahis Grandfather was full blood Cherokee. Has been confirmed, his Mother was Cajan or Melungeon. Check that too. Her mtdna is K. And I have the next 2 Mazingo Grandmother, A Skinner and an unknown Marry who was Indian or kidnapped by Indians can’t verify. Her dad is adopted so I know nothing on her dads line. The other lines of the grandfather include Grandmother with possible Indian, James, Brooks, . There is A Sykes line could be Jewish. Part I’m stuff at pre 1800 GA, or SC. Barnwell to be exact has a large population of possible Indian and African connections from the Caribbean settlers.
The further east, lines I can get is Scottish Highlanders in NC a Jacobite, clearances from Isle of Skye Scotland l Clan McAlister- MacAlasdair. The Somerlad Ancient DNA I, he was Viking. That’s reflected in the results,
Adams Surname is also Scottish. Clan Chattanooga, Same clan as the McIntosh traders. Who were in GA. Other Scot clans were in here Campbell. McDonald Gordon. Mozingo is Melungeon to Jamestown 1619 E3b or E1b1a7a .
Now on the H. We were always told our material Grandmother was Cherokee. The kids were taunting not to mentally that as she would be sent to a reservation. Even in early 1900. Her Dad was a Turner. That line is brick wall with William b 1838 GA (Trail of tears year.)he came to AL about age 12 with older brothers one who went to Texas. He first shows up in Census around 1860. his son Married into Carney line that seems to be connected to Indian Trade in GA, West Florida, Spanish, MS, TN, La. before and after Rev. war. finding Indians dna in that would take a fingerprint test, the surname is also Melungeon.
Now, my maternal grandmother side her mothers parents claim Cherokee. That surname is Crenshaw. There is. Cornealius Crenellations who was an Intrepretor for the Queen of Pamunkey, Not a direct relationship to me but it’s is thought to be a descendant of RaleigCroshaw, Jamestown. Either Raleigh and or his son Jospeh was married to Rachael West a sister of Pocahontas. Something new I. Pursuing. He also for sure had an Indian son named Crankshaw. The research on this for the post part persists with ending with the Thomas Crenshaw name, though the Indian Research comes thru in some places. I can get her X tree back 7 generations or so to Jamestown with surnames Crenshaw m Winn, Earle, Williams, French Huguenot surnames Gough and Dupree, the Dupree’s can get to French Royals Isabella who married King Edward of England had John Lack. Also married to Hugh Lusighan, then to Rollo, William the C, Charlemagne beck etc. pretty good for anyone not wanting to mention her Heritage or even work on it, In her Turner Line we can get back to Henry Bonner in Chowan Precinct, and Jones possibilities of Thomas Jones Pirate in Jamestown, Captain of Discovery at some point. The Bonner’s were involved in Indian Trade in Ga and escaped the Ft Mims massacre by th Creeks with Warner the day before. The warnings were not heeded by the Ft Command,
Anyway, she’s an H. With some U markers, and a North Africans markers. To read a article regarding DNA Consultants Cherokee Project read the occurrence of H and K here https://dnaconsultants.com/wp-content/u ... erokee.pdf
