 (If you have more information you would like to share, you may also post a more extended version of your family pedigree on the project website’s Pedigree Forum below)

Hi, Floyd.  I posted your pedigree on the Patriarch page.  However, I think there may be an error on the birthdate of John W. Drew.  I omitted his birthdate on the Patriarch page.  Please advise as to his correct birthdate.  Thanks.

My 37 markers DNA test came in.

My 2ggf Charles "Clendenin" Drew  married my 2ggm Wlizbeth "Betsy" Reid/Read (daughter of 3ggps Stephen & Winnie Hollingsworth Reid)...

Family legend passed down from 3 of their sons (1. Stephen Andrew Drew to me, James Walter Drew II; 2. James Drew to Laura Altever & 3.  William Hyatt Drew to Christopher Wayne Drew) was that 2ggf Charles "Clendenin" Drew took his stepfather Drew's surname...  Some believe his stepfather was John Robert Drew and some believe, as I do, that he was Benjamin Drew.  There is a death certificate for Catherine Drew Marley that says her parents were Ben Drew & Elizabeth Lloyd...  I believe this Catherine Drew Marley was a daughter of 2ggm Elizabeth Lloyd Clendenin Drew & Benjamin Drew but some don't believe that.

I recently took a DNA test (37 markers) and it matches, 1 genetic distance) a descendant (George Michael Clendenin) of William Clendenin of Orange Co., NC...  That's where I suspect 3ggm Elizabeth Lloyd Clendenin Drew was born as well as her son my 2ggf Charles...
(See below) I just got some information on the Lloyd family of Orange Co., NC  it doesn't  prove 3ggm Elizabeth was a Lloyd but it's something to work with for the time being. .... Best regards, Jim
  Click Here: Check out "Orange County, NC Archives"     source for below

Thomas LOYD 1 D. Mar 1717 Prince George Co, VA.

Thomas LLOYD II B. Bef 1717 assumed Prince George Co, VA. D. After Feb 1757 Brunswick Co, VA. Planter.

Thomas LLOYD III B. ca 1720 (1736?) Prince George Co, VA. Mar. before 30 Dec 1751 assumed Brunswick Co, VA. D. 1792 Orange Co, NC. Planter. Revolutionary War Patriot-NC.

Stephen LLOYD B. ca 1759 Orange Co, NC. D. ca 1790 Orange Co, NC. Planter. Revolutionary War Soldier-NC. Married Martha (Polly) MORRIS B. ca 1760 Orange Co, NC. D. ca 1821 Orange Co, NC. (Stephen was killed about 1790 by Isaac 1 of his 7 slaves). 

Though, it may never be proven there?s a possibility Stephen & Martha ?Polly? Morris were the parents of our Elizabeth Lloyd Clendenin Drew?s.   A James Clendenin was a marriage bondsman for their son Stephen L/loyd, Jr. married Polley Edwards on 20 Oct. 1800.

Son of Stephen & ?Polly? Morris

Hi, ene97.  You certainly may post your pedigree information even if your own surname is not Drew.  As long as the earliest generation (earliest known male) has the Drew surname, the information will be useful on this page.  We will add only those generations wiwth the Drew surname to the patriarch page, but you can post as much as you would like to this forum. We encourage you to include information dating back as far as you can go, this will help you and others make connections.  Please keep in mind that any information on individuals born after 1910 will not be included on the patriarch page for privacy reasons, even if it is posted here.  Thank you for your interest in this project and we look forward to hearing back from you!
