I am probably not phrasing this correctly but on the pedigree dna charts it now shows my Stroud line matching 36/37 or 37/37 with a Uriah Griffin.  I can do a search and see where his father ? married a Stroud woman but how would that make his male line Griffin match my paternal Stroud line?

We're not sure exactly what happened, but it appears that sometime before the late 1700s, either a Stroud fathered a son who carried the Griffin surname or a Griffin fathered a son who carried the Stroud surname.   This could have been a case of adoption, infidelity, illegitmacy or a simple surname change.   There are several other surnames that are matching this DNA pattern, too.
