I am trying to find some info on my GGG Grandfather Gregory Hall born 1803. He was raised as a "Hall" but from the DNA testing he was born a Summer/Sumner.
My brother and a cousin both were tested and it came back with these matches and no "Hall's".
My conclusion is probably one of two things happened. Gregory was born to an unmarried female by the name of Hall with a Summer/Sumner father and he was raised with his mother's name
He was adopted. He was born to Summer/Sumner parents but was adopted by a Hall family therefore given the Hall name.
According to family hx he was a descendant of William Hall from Duplin County N.C.......there is NO proof. Can anyone help me? Thanks Faye
You could try the Family Finder test. I have had good success with it. It could give you matches with some modern Summer or Sumner people who might have a pedigree that would help. There are no guarantees with anything, however.
