Have any of you joined this project with your DNA results? It is pretty interesting and I think it will help us with our research a little more!

Here's another line in the John and Sarah Boone Wilcockson Family

John Wilcockson, b. 1720, d. 1798-02-26,  m. Sarah Cassandra Boone
Samuel Willcockson, b. 1754-02-24, Rowan County NC, d. c1827,  m. Anna Jordan
Isaiah Wilcox, b. 1795-02-25, Wilkes County NC, d. 1879-02-20,  m. Frances Greer
William M. Wilcoxson, b. 1818-11-07, Ashe County NC, d. 1909-01-30,  m. Lavina Vina Hatton
Isaiah S. Willcoxen, b. 1843-07-25, d. 1929-01-14,  m. Martha Ann Tucker
William Monroe Wilcox, b. 1868-10-27, d. 1925-01-29,  m. Melissa Ida Vannoy
Arnold Glendon Wilcox, b. 1895-04-01, Wilkes County NC, d. 1967-01-17, m. Frances Hester Wilcox
John L Wilcox, b. 1918-04-18, Wyco WV, d. 2007-01-19,  m. Virginia Frances Harper

John L & Virginia are my grandparents.  I just got my test kit from Ancestry in the mail and plan to share my results here.

The different spellings shown are from actual records I have seen.  For instance, "Willcoxen" for Isaiah S was from CSA military records, but 1860 census had him listed as "Wilcoxson"same as his father.  Then, his tombstone just uses "Wilcox".  There are other examples like this.  So I think it was an evolving thing for all of them that just finally worked itself out to the simpler spelling.

My grandfather was Samuel Haggan, grandfather, great grandfather, 2nd great grandfather. My 2nd great grandfather's brother was Felix Haggan 1865. Does anyone else have a Felix Haggan in their family? Just sounds like a strange first name.

       My GGGrandfather Michael McCarthy's burial record in Bathurst, NB, Canada says that he was 65 when he died 30 Jan 1860. This should put his birth around 1794. His first son (that we know of was Thomas baptized Oct 1828 at St. Famile RC church in Bathurst. He was supposedly born in Ireland 8 Jun 1828. We think that we found his marriage record to Catherine Regan in Bandon 1824 & the bapt of dau Anne in 1826. Thomas went by John all of his life. Michael's other children by Catherine Regan were William, Michael, Mary, Andrew, & Joseph James. After Joseph's bapt, Michael married Catherine Cronin, & had Patrick, my GGrandfather Florence Francis, & Thomas. Michael's children named their son that would normally be named after their father James, & in one case Michael James, so Michael's name may have been James.  
        I have recently traced a close connection to My GGrandfather Patrick McCarthyb1823 who Married Catherine Kelly  I believe 28 Feb 1843 Kilmichael, Co. Cork, Ireland. Patrick & Catherine Had dau Mary 04 Aug 1845 Kilmichael, Co. Cork, Ireland Then son Charles 1849 in New Limerick, Aroostook Co., Maine They then had dau Florence 1852, dau Hannah, son John, dau Patricia, son Michael, dau Ellen, son William, twins Frances Angeline, & Francis Augustus, dau Catherine Louise.
       I have connected genetically with others from, & currently in the Dunmanway area.
We are of the McCarthy Glas sept  whose castle Tougher is there in Dunmanway, under the McCarthy Reagh whose castle is Kilbritten under McCarthy Mor castle in Killarney

I had my mtDNA tested at FTDNA, they designated my Haplogroup U5b2a2, I joined the U5b FMS mtDNA Group, and the administrator designated me as U5b2a2c, which was confirmed by Ian Logan and uploaded to GEDbank.  FTDNA are way behind and refuse to recognize it as yet.

I have no mtDNA Matches on FTDNA other than my son, my daughters haven't tested, but they would match anyway.  I had hoped for Matches that would link me to other family members on the maternal line.

My earliest known mitochondrial ancestor is Jane Johnston born 1798, died 1824 age 26, she is my 4th great grandmother, married to a Peter Mallaby in Masham, Yorkshire.
