We invite you to submit your "Pedigree" for this Surname.   Our Surname Project is primarily interested in your Paternal line, as surnames are passed down from father to son, just as the yDNA is passed down. 

If you ARE A MEMBER of this Surname Project at Family Tree DNA, send your pedigree by email to at  The pedigree will then be posted on the Surname Project's Patriarchs Page by or sent to the Project’s Administrator.

 (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)

From an email sent by Linda Plock [matmaker77 AT]:

I am missing the one or two links getting the full name and family of the the first one to come to America and the son who was here in the early 1700s in Berks Co. Pennsylvania. The Edward Moren and wife Anne who made their will in Berks in 1760 had 11 kids. It's kind of hard to hide that many folks in a small community. One son's name was John but none of the others are mentioned by name. I would love to know. My ancestor Joseph (b.1780) might have been one of the kids but that's a guess. Considering the will was witnessed by the father and a relative of Joseph's future wife Elizabeth Thompson - likely candidate.
