Patriarch Page






By correlating test results and paternal pedigrees, project members can identify their genetic heritage and related families.   Click here to find out how to use the Patriarchs Page or how to contact a pedigree provider.
Send your pedigrees for this surname by email to the Project Administrator.  Click the link "Pedigrees" above for instructions.



We will list all Families, by Earliest Ancestor and Line Leader who wish to be listed. We hope that eventually, all families will be listed on this page. We also hope to eventually locate descendants of each family and to arrange their participation in the DNA project. We are still seeking men from various lines for this project. Of specific interest are the Alabama branches, Rockingham Co, NC branches, and Kentucky branches. Again, we also welcome Cardwells from across the sea to take part. To contact someone that submitted for testing find the C-# code on the family tree and then scroll to the bottom of this page for their email. NPE = Non-Paternal Event

NOTE 1: C-17, C-21, C-26 and C-25 appear to all be descendants of John Cardwell of Claiborne County, Tennessee. Cardwell Line I appears to be descendants of Thomas Cardwell and Martha Perrin of Virginia. There is has been no proven documentation on the parents fo C-17, but there is a strong genetic connection to that of John Cardwell of Claiborne County,TN.

NOTE 2: C-13 remains another mystery.It is apparent that there is a strong genetic connection to Line I, but no link has been determined through traditional research.

NOTE 3: Noah Cardwell was the son of Ann Cardwell, daughter of Richard Perrin Cardwell. Noah was born out of wedlock. Hopefully, DNA testing might provide clues to his father. Current results are indicating that this line is strongly connected to the Dalton family of the Rockingham County, NC area. More research is needed.

NOTE 4: C-31 represents a predicted NPE. Paper research indicates that Gabriel Cardwell was the son of Susannah Cardwell, daughter of Richard Perrin Cardwell of Rockingham County, NC, and an unknown father. See C-20 for additional information.

NOTE 5: C-05 represents a predicted NPR. Traditional research indicates that Caroline Matilda Cardwell reverted back to the use of her maiden name by 1870. All of her children continured to use the Cardwell surname. Matilda was married to Alfred Reddick in 1857, but it appears that he never returned from Civil War service. It is suspected that her children born after 1857 are from Alfred Reddick. Coordination with the Reddick DNA Project is ongoing in an attempt to establish a link.

NOTE 6: Richard Ivan, or Ivanson, Cardwell (C-08) was born in 1851 in Grainger County, TN. He is the son of Caroline Matilda Cardwell and an unknown father. DNA results indicate a strong association with the Sharp family of the Rockingham County, NC area. It should be noted that two of Matilda’s sisters married Sharp men while the family livied in Rockingham County, NC. They are listed in the 1850 census of that county. It appears that Richard Ivan Cardwell is the son of a Sharp and Caroline Matilda Cardwell. Additional research is needed concerning the Sharp lines. This is another example of a predicted NPE.

Replace the AT with the @ symbol. The black codes are unfilled and represent the numbering system used when we were still part of the Caldwell Family DNA Project. They will be assigned as new tests are submitted and do not indicate any importance in ranking.
