My earliest male ancestor listed on FTDNA is not a Moran. My earliest Moran was John Moran, b. @1710 in Essex Co., VA, married Sarah (Smith?), d. April 3, 1775. He was granted a patent of 283 acres on Stockton's Creek & Mechan's River in Albemarle, Co., VA. My descendency is: John's son William; his son Elijah, who had a son, Robert Lewis Moran, with Catherine Graves. Robert married Elizabeth Ann Graves. Their daughter, Frances Virginia Moran Detamore, was my grandmother. Robert and Elizabeth had only one son, William Grayson Moran, and I don't know where his descendents are, so can't recommend a male to have the DNA test.
I would like to know who the immigrant in this line of Morans was and the country of origin. Were they Irish, Scots-Irish?
I am also a member of the Graves Family Forum. My Kit info is posted there. The Morans and Graves in that part of Virginia had close ties.
