    I have been searching my Lloyd line for ten years.  I came across some leads in expanding my tree but nothing going pass 2x great grandfather.  So, I am at my wall waiting for a breakthrough and matches to provide some assistance.  I would like to hear the stories of the people in my line because I heard very little to none about these family members.

This is my pedigree as the following:

    *Nelson Lloyd 1847 - ? Webster county, Mississippi
   Sallie Smith 1863 - ?
   *Preston Lloyd 10 Mar 1888 - August 1962  Louisville, Winston county, Mississippi
      Mary Eiland 18 Sep 1894 - 12 Feb 1910.   Louisville, Winston county, Mississippi
        *Robert Lloyd   12 Feb 1910   Louisville, Winston county, Mississippi - 18 Jul 1981 Chicago, Illinois
      *Carrie Lee Bowden   25 Oct 1913   Tunica county, Mississippi - 25 Feb 1983  Detroit, Michigan

Has anyone been able to locate this book for purchase?  The book was written about the Halbert McClure lineage (1.4) and his decendants.  I've been trying to find a copy, but the author self published, and has since passed.  It says to contact two different genalogical societies, but one is no loner in existence.  I can find one used copy on Amazon for $100 more than the original price.

Thanks for any ideas,

Searching for any Ray descendants of Daniel Ray.  I have two male Rays who have been tested in the I1-L22 haplogroup whose paper trail goes back to Daniel.  Most of the first 6 generations lived in the Massachusetts area., but subsequent generations moved mostly North and West.

Please contact me if you believe you may be descended from Daniel.

Hello, I'm nix3136. My father was adopted and is Barry F in this YDNA Doyle family project LinneageII. Got to work out what that means.
We know nothing of his father.

His YDNA matches the Carroll & Moran projects too.

I'd like to find anyone who matches in autosomal testing. nix3136 on Ancestry the DNA tree is the one to look at with my gedmatch number. Nothing is locked in - the Owings name is of interest too,
My father is YDNA matched to the Connor little to go on a few surnames are grouping together in Maryland and Virginia and USA. Captain Richard Owings with the names Clarke & Davis...all unfolding. My close matches with my Dad are American. It seems he may have been an American with Irish ancestry...he was in Australia early 1945.

I have uncovered his birth mother's history who has passed - Larcombe/Pierpoint  and the Pitt line hits Peerage Wake family)- it's a huge family in Echuca/Moama area - which i think overlaps my Dad's paternal line in a place or two later back. Please see my tree in ancestry i am nix3136 and its the tree that lists my gedmatch number.
Nicole- nix3136 on ancestry; Gedmatch A794288; B72240 FTDNA
Barry - BF or Barry F, Gedmatch A575696; B87278 on FTDNA

Here's to some mind re my grandfathers nationality...but the US hits are all my closer ones.

Thanks, any help appreciated.

Here is my Devlin Family Roots.
Henry Devlin - b. 1836 d 1876.  Born in Ireland and immigrated and settled in Independence, Iowa. == parents unknown
  Three known siblings.  Arthur b 1840  d 1878 - Peter est. 1844 d 1870 - Sarah (Devlin) McClernon - Husband - Henry McClernon == no information, two children Hugh and John

Henry Devlin Married - Bridget M Malone b est.1840 - 1866, three children Mary Ellen, Sarah Jane, Agnes Devlin (died at birth as well as mother).

I am searching for any information on Henry's parents and more information on the McClernon side.  I have legal papers showing the sister Sarah having guardianship over the two daughters of Henry after his death and Hugh McClernon being executor of the estate. 

Both Henry and Hugh worked as harness makers, with Hugh going on to own the business and passing it down to his sons. 

I am also looking for any other siblings he may have had as well as any information on Henry's wife Bridget Malone.   Thank you :)

I do ask only two things:

1. Everyone must be respectful to others, and

2. That discussions be limited to issues involving the Shepler-Shipler families and DNA results or other genealogy-related discussions.

A totally of 7 Y-DNA test with a varying number of markers has been tested to date. Not all are listed here as one person declined to join the surname project and two tests were done by when they offered Y-DNA tests. However, the administrator is in possession of test reports from all tests.

The following marker adjustments were done before comparison of the results.

Y-GATA-H4 Ancestry value - 1 = FTDNA value
DYS441 Ancestry value - 1 = FTDNA value
DYS442 Ancestry value - 5 = FTDNA value
GATA-A10 Ancestry value - 2 = FTDNA value

Analysis of results

Since these tests are done with varying number of markers, the only commonality is at the 12 marker level. At this level, all tested individuals are believed to be related within about 7 generations based upon this:

The most notable results are from kit 70433. While this particular person has declined to officially be a member of this project, they did provide both their test report and information on their ancestors. They are a direct descendant of Capt Henry Shepler (01 Aug 1737 - d 18 Oct 1781) ) of Berks County, PA.

The conclusion from this is that the descendants of Henry Shepler of Berks County, PA are indeed related, within a genealogical time frame to the Shepler family of Westmoreland County, PA who, before the Revolutionary War, lived in the area near Winchester, VA.

The most significant need for this research project now is to find another male Shepler descendant of Capt Henry Shepler of Berks County, PA who might be interested in doing a 111 marker Y-DNA test. This test will provide a much more concise estimate of when the most recent common ancestor lived and this will thus make normal genealogical searching for records a little easier. Read the following for more information:
