 MY YDNA RESULTS at FTDNA #560275  - have indicated that I am biologically a "Tidwell" and not a "White" as  always assumed.
* Seems our grandmother was 6 months pregnant when she married Mr. White in memphis, TN 1920.

My sister has been working with a family member of the line of Middleton Johnson Tidwell  c. 1840 Walker Co, Alabama , son of Benjamin F. Tidwell c. 1818 SC & Esther Elizabeth( aka Easter Westl ) -- Alabama 1850 Census/ Walker County.

Middleton J Tidwell was married 3 times that I found.

1. Mary S. Parks Married Illinois 1875 - known  child : Mary Tidwell
2. Sarah E. Camden married Illinois 1871 - Known children-
( think we may come from this marriage )
3. Sarah S. Snider/Snyder married Illinois 1896- known son: Johnson Vinson/Vincent Tidwell 1898-1977.
Trying to determine for sure if /how/ and where we fit into this line.
I have a DNA of 73 cM with a son of JV Tidwell born in 1898.
My Sister has a 130 cM with same son. 
 DNA seems to say we have MRCA of Benjamin 1818 & Esther West  Tidwell

*Have found source who posted  that Benjamin's line back as :

 John Tidwell of SC and Elizabeth Unknown > William Tidwell & Mary Unknown. > Richard Tidwell & Sabrina Barrett.   But as yet have no validity as to this info in the post.

I also have DNA matches with several who go back to Francis Tidwell 1777 SC.  This is getting confusing and  I am new to all this.

Can anyone help ? Emails: and
