My brother has taken the Ancestory.com DNA test. Our closest relatives have the last name Looney, which is why I am here. I hope to get my results posted soon. They are very much in line with the first group listed on the results page.
My great grandfather went by the name Andrew/Adam/Ad Mawk Mauk Mauck. From census reports I have located him in Hawkins Co., Tennessee in his early life and Appalachia, VA later. He was born approximately 1863-66. In 1892, he married my great grandmother Laura Welch in Hawkins Co., Tennessee. The odd thing is the marriage license says his name is Adam Looney. All census reports have him as Mawk. Laura died in 1925, and her death certificate listed Adam Mank as her undertaker. After she died he disappeared. No, one in the family knows anything about him, what happened to him, or anything about him.
I have come to believe that per the DNA results we definately should be Looney's. So, now I am trying to figure out how... Can anyone assist in this area?
