Susannah Glover was the second wife of Stephen Terry d. 1769. She was the widow of George Glover and the daughter of Robert Mitchell of Granville Co. NC. Both the Glover and Mitchell families were in Granville County NC in the 1750?s. Stephen and Susannah had no issue.
There is no record I have found which shows the 200 acres of land on caney fork of? Sandy river? was transferred to son John Terry. As the oldest son, John Terry was heir to the land as Stephen Terry died in testate. The land is in present day Chester County near Chester, SC and John Terry is buried there.
This is the last information that shows proofs for the Chester-Craven County family of Stephen and his son John Terry. This is proofs for T-2
It appears that these families are related from DNA tests results. It does not necessarily suggest this is the same Stephen Terry in both cases. Just that there is a common ancestor between T-2, T-3, T-9, T-10, T-11, T-16 and T-17
with Stephen Terry of Hanover Co. VA who we know resided in Hanover Co. VA 1752-1762. We have enough tests to suggest a modal baseline for Group I.
We have yet to have a male test from Edgefield or Fairfield SC Terry families. These former groups are also expected to be related per the late Jay Terry of Orem, Utah research.
Knowing that T-2 and T-10
could not have had a common ancestor in the last 8 generations, their 37 marker comparison shows that the probability that they shared a common ancestor within the last...
200 - 300 years is 74.24%
400? ? ? ? ?years is 93.09%
500? ? ? ? ?years is 98.62%

? The FTDNATiP? results are based on the mutation rate study presented during the 1st International Conference on Genetic Genealogy, on Oct. 30, 2004. The above probabilities take into consideration the mutation rates for each individual marker being compared.
Since each marker has a different mutation rate, identical Genetic Distances will not necessarily yield the same probabilities. In other words, even though T-10
has a Genetic Distance of 1 from T-2
, someone else with the same Genetic Distance may have different probabilities, because the distance of 1 was prompted by mutations in different markers, with different mutation rates.
