McANALLY SURNAME Y-DNA PROJECT
McAnallys descending from Charles born in 1685 also descend from a 5th century Irish warlord, Niall of the Nine Hostages.
The descendants of Charles b. 1685 have a distant match to a McAnally in Scotland who believes his people were previously in Ireland.
Family Finder testing agrees with the premise that John A McAnally b 1819 (a genetic Jackson) and Frances Marion McAnally b 1841 were half brother sons of William b 1797 & Nancy Poe McAnally b 1803, she being the common parent.
