I had thought Nat Geo would send me the info by email, since I gave them my email address when I ordered the kit, but that is not the way it works.

We have a recent test result, supporting the Gilbert Drew line.  Will Drew, kit number 338169 is reasonably close to the two previous tests in this lineage group.  Will is descended from Gilbert's son Samuel, whereas Jim is descended from son Gilbert Jr). 

I'd like to see more tests for the John of Plymouth line, but at present Gilbert does not appear to be related to either John of Plymouth or William of NH.

My ancestor, William Tomerlin, landed at Jamestown in 1691 and his son William Tomerlin raised his family in VA as well.

Here is the data from the Y-DNA test for Vernon Lee Collins, Sr. and some of my thoughts about it:
R1b1a2 R-M269 13 24 14 10 11 14 12 12 12 13 14 29
He is in Haplogroup R-M269
Don't know what the CX-1 grouping indicates
Some in the group show R-L21 instead of R-M269
I am wondering about that difference

Suspect our Collins ancestor lived in Chesterfield Co., SC and that he was married to a Horton.  Would love to discuss any of this.

I have been researching Mark Stroud for several years.  He is the father to
an ancestor named Sally Stroud b. VA 1805; d. bef. 1880 WV.  Sally Stroud
married in 1822 Floyd Co., KY to William Nelson b. 1800 NC; d. bef. 1870 Wayne Co., WV.  Wm. Nelson was son of Emmanuel Nelson b. 1876 NC; d. abt. 1866 Wayne Co., WV.  He had a daughter named Rachel Nelson that married a William Stroud and they resided in Fayette Co., WV in the 1850's.  I have not been able to establish a concrete
familial link of William Stroud b. abt. 1798 to Sally Stroud Nelson.  Seems like they may be siblings or cousins.  John Wesley Stroud b. 1833 WV (possibly son of William Stroud/Rachel Nelson) listed he had a brother living in Wayne Co., WV on his Civil War Pension Application.

I am trying to make a connection between Sally Stroud Nelson and a
John Stroud b. 1816 VA, married Matilda Marcum and lived in Logan Co., WV in 1850 and beyond..... trying to learn if Sally and John were siblings.  As mentioned above, there was a familial
connection of a Stroud Family in Fayette Co., WV to the Wayne Co., WV Stroud's through a John Wesley Stroud and Harmon Stroud of Wayne Co., WV.

Has anyone found a Mark Stroud within their Stroud research?  Thank you

I am confused, and hope someone can enlighten me.

My surname is Cross, and I have paper docs to trace this to the late 1700s.

I did the Y-67 and none of my matches have the surname Cross. I understand there may be a NPE to explain this. Can someone tell me more? My closest match is a genetic distance of 5 to 7 at 67 markers.

Our oral family history states that Cross used to be de la Croix. Legend says we originated in France, then left for Ireland, then came to America. This would have all happened before 1770, with the first birth in America of Cornelius Cross.

The Y-67 DNA test shows a LOT of Ireland; in fact, I am R-M269, a descendant of Niall of the Nine Hostages. So, Ireland seems to be somewhat confirmed. But, France, not so much, unless someone left Ireland and went to France, then later went back to Ireland. King Niall was in Ireland in the 5th Century AD.

However, it is rather disconcerting that no matches include Cross or even de la Croix.

Any ideas of explanation? My thoughts include either NPE or no one else in my line or distant line has been tested.

Just rather disappointed that no other Cross surnames match my DNA in a surname study...
