Hi, John, I hope you send out a "mass" email so all the people know to come over here and join up!  However, I'm confused.  You've got the DNA results up in a nice chart (after they seemed inaccessible over at, but how is it you're able to do this?  I want to order the transfer-upgrade for my cousin (James B. Pruitt, Group E), but since you've got the results up already, is there a reason to do so? Are the results you've got posted here the ones and so not completely compatible with results from FT?  Does he need to do an "official" transfer and the more markers thing (I'm looking at the $58 choice, but apparently he can only go from 33 to "YDNA 35 upgrade?) BUT I just talked to FT about this.  The rep. said you could transfer the entire group project to a FT group instead of this site.  Is there a reason you decided not to do that and instead opted for this site?  This seems more cumbersome and problematic, since a transfer directly to FT would have allowed the entire Pruitt membership to come over without having to individually sign up, as well as transferring all the other data we had at ancestry.  Also, the rep said if I order the upgrade for my cousin the results have to be hand-entered here, but if the new family project was at FT they would automatically be added to the FT Pruitt project.  So, I am really wondering about this choice?  The rep also said they have a dept. dedicated to helping with the transfer at  I'm going to email you this also because I don't know how often you're reviewing the posts in this form. . .Polly Zashin

My husband's DNA was just tested to determine his Pennington ancestry.  Don't stop reading, it gets better.

His great grandfather was Wilson Pennington Gross.  His death certificate states that his father was Jesse Pennington and his mother was Eliza Simpson.  He was in the census of Harlan County as Wilson Pendleton in the household of Abijah Gross and Mary Howard Simpson.  Mary was the mother of Eliza Simpson.  Abijah was Eliza's stepfather.  

In trying to determine which line of Penningtons is my husband's line, we did a DNA test.  The results came back that my husband is not descended from any Pennington, but from the Edmund Gross line.  We already had this line in our sights because he shows up in the Burkhart line, so we are familiar with him.  However, it appears that Eliza had a child by a descendent of Edmund Gross.  But we may never know the true story.

Any bets as to the parentage?  I have a theory...but it is just that...a theory.  Anyone know anything about this line?

What does the CX-1 denote, as opposed to simply a C without the X? 

Another thing:  Who can tell me more about Kit #26404?  I did the Google search.  I still do not understand.  Who was tested for this one?  Any contact info available?

My name is Ronald Carlisle Hudson from Durham, NC.  This is my mt_DNA line, up to where it intersects with the Hedgpeth family and then I need some help from anyone who knows the Hedgpeths of North Carolina.  My FTDNA kit number is 180682.

Ronald Carlisle Hudson, son of Emily Lou Jackson, daughter of Emily Berttie "Bertha" Stone, d/o Lou Zettie Barnes, d/o Emily Eliza(beth) Hedgpeth. 

This is where my line ties into the Hedgpeth line and where I have a dispute and need help in resolving it as well as possible.

Emily Elizabeth Hedgpeth is the daughter of Arthur Hedgpeth, Jr., son of Arthur Hedgpeth, Sr. 

Arthur, Sr. is either the son of Benjamin Hedgpeth and Charity Braswell or the son of John Hedgpeth and Sarah Nicholson.

If it is the latter, I need to know if that John Hedgpeth is the son of Benjamin and Charity Hedgpeth.

I look forward to hearing from you.  You may email me at

Thank you!

I would like to welcome the members who have joined our new Pruett/Pruitt/Prewitt DNA Project at World Families.  As most people know by now, our Pruett/Pruitt/Prewitt DNA Project with over 245 members is shutting down on September 30, 2014.  Bill Pruiett and I are trying to preserve the wonderful discussions, files, books, and photos we had on Ancestry for the six Family Groups we discovered through Y-DNA testing and move our information and DNA results to this new project.

Bill Pruiett has downloaded all the discussions, files, and books and organized them on what we refer to as our sister site at:

Bill has set everything up by Family Group.  Its now very easy to find everything on a Family Group. Bill is currently working on getting the 29 photo albums on the sister site, too.

It been very hard for our members to get to our old project at Ancestry because of technical problems and url changes that weren't announced, but you can still get to our old project until September 30th at:

Bill and I are new to the World Families system which has considerably more features than Ancestry and I hope you will be patient with us.

My Harrison line starts in Monmouth Co NJ and I think we may be related to Richard Harrison, but I haven't been able to find proof.  My ancestor Job Harrison and his wife Lydia Lewis Harrison pioneered up to Wayne Co NY, and after his death the family moved to Walworth Co Wisconsin.  My family can be found in NJ, NY, Nova Scotia, Canada, Wisconsin, Minnesota, California, Indiana, Iowa, South Dakota, Louisiana, Maryland, Delaware.  They were pioneers, musicians, and farmers.  I didn't include any females in this. You can contact me at  I have one brother who has the Harrison name, but we live far apart.  Possibly one day I'll get him to take the DNA test.
