My name is Jennifer Mattocks Walker. Family Tree DNA kit #628942 and GEDmatch #T133438. My Melton tree goes William Emerson, James Dixon, Ozias, James Harrison, Absalom then I hit a wall pretty much. Is anyone a match with me? I'm new to all of this. My grandfather William Emerson Melton met my grandmother Barbara Jean Stephens during WWII and had a fling which produced my mother Donna Kay Stephens. They were never married and Barbara's parents adopted my mother Donna as their own. Am really trying to get in touch with my Melton side. William passed away in 2001 and he had two sons, one is deceased and the other won't answer me. Please help if possible. Thank you!

I am searching for Virginia Clarks that share a connection to John James Clark born in Orange Co VA in 1810 to James Clark and Sarah (Sally) Payne.  We are not in the line with George Rogers Clark or William Clark (Lewis and Clark), at least so far as I am able to prove. However, it would not be surprising to learn of some cousin connection as the two families seemed to have traveled similar paths at similar times - Caroline Co VA to Orange Co Va to Mercer/Shelby/Jessamine Co Ky in the late 1700's/early 1800's.  I had DNA testing done - that's the good news, the bad news is it was done through a lab not linked to FTDNA.  I am hoping that by posting the results here I might get it in front of the right people.  My FTDNA placed me in the R-M269 (no surprise there) the LivingDNA results placed me in subgroup R-Z30.  Does that line up with anyone here?
If I were guessing further back than the James Clark (Sally Payne) mentioned above, I am trying to track a family of Clarks that came to Orange from Caroline Co Va in the late 1700's that included Thomas Clark, Sarah Clark, Patrick Clark (married Eliz. Spalding), James Clark, John Clark, William Clark, and Reuben Clark.  There is much circumstantial evidence that points to this family.  Unfortunately Caroline Co is one of the 'burned records' counties and official documentation has been impossible so far.

Fowler Y-111 (after 6 years) show no matching Fowler surnames.  Just O'Riley, Riley and many other Irish names.  It has been suggested that I move to another group (Riley, etc)  I cannot find any other provable Fowlers earlier than 1800. Possible adoption or simple name change.  I'm still trying.  Also have the Niall DNA R-M269 and 98% Irish.  Good luck!

Richard "The Elder" Harrison - The test kit is 136507.  This lineage has a match with another Brothers participant that is not in this project.   There is a 66/67 marker match between a member of this line.  It is not clear if there was an early adoption between these lines, but there is a 99.2% chance of a common male ancestor since the year 1700. Whether that common ancestor was a Brothers or a Harrison is as yet unknown.
This Harrison line is also a genetic distance of 1 on the 37 marker test with kit# 428903.

Interesting to note that this Harrison line does have 2 other Harrison matches that migrated from Ireland but no family connection has been made.  

This family is haplogroup R-M269

I'm interested in sharing DNA results with one of the male descendants of Robert Prewitt and Martha Chandler. Their descendants have created a facebook page called Prewitts of Central Kentucky. My requests on their page have gone unnoticed. If anyone here can broker this request I would be grateful.

I believe a DNA match between myself and a descendant of Robert will help connect Andrew and Richard, sons of Henry (1658).

My 5th great grandfather, Elijah Prewitt, was born about the same time as Robert and his brother Joshua. Both Robert and Joshua moved to Fayette Co., Kentucky about the same time Elijah moved to Madison, Co. Kentucky. These are adjoining counties.

Robert's line back to Henry is thought to be Michael, then Andrew. Elijah's line back to Henry is thought to be David, then Richard.

I have not made connection with the Robert Prewitt line but the family of Martha Chandler along with the Cobb family remained in proximity to my Mitchell-Prewitt line settling in Scott/Owen/Henry/Trimble Counties.  They had a son, Vaul Allen Prewitt and we have a namesake uncle, Vaul Allen Mitchell who served in the Civil War.  Ironically, my dad's younger brother looks exactly like Vaul Allen Prewitt of 1824!  This leads me to believe that Judith looked a great deal like Vaul Allen, son of Robert Prewitt and Martha Chandler.  Or, that these looks were consistent across the family. 

The Chandlers appear on the census with my Mitchells in Trimble County, KY (we are from Judith Prewitt, daughter of Michael Sr) well into the 1920 Census.  One of my great grandfather's dearest childhood friends was Cordelia "Cordie" Chandler.  Joshua Prewitt died in Trimble County also, will proved.  My 4th great grandfather witnessed Joshua's last will and testament in Trimble.

I did connect in 2015 with a Daughter of the Revolution who is descended from Byrd Prewitt, son of Michael.  She confirmed that it was Byrd's house in Nicholasville where Michael Prewitt died in 1798.  Her name is Cindie Prewitt Vaughan and she lives in Texas. 

She is also a member of the Mayflower Society and may be of some assistance to you in your research.  If you like, I can put you in touch with her.  Most of Trimble and Henry County records are not online and they directly impact the records found in Shelby County, KY and beyond.  If any of this rings a bell, I will be happy to do a few lookups for you to help with Elijah Prewitt.
