Hello, my name is James Medley. I did the Ysearch on FTDNA and my markers (if thats what its called) were practically identical to Acuff Missouri, kit#17848. I was wondering how to get a hold of someone that might know, well, a lot more than I know. Thanks, James

Hi James. How many markers did you test 12, 25 37 67 or 111? That will make a difference determining the closeness.

Hi Marie, I only did 12, but my father, James S. Medley, did the 67. His results are what I was mostly going by.

Hi! my name is Patricia Brown Hoffman. My Acuff ancestor is Sarah "Sally" Acuff born ca 1766 VA. Died after 1850 Grainger Co TN. She married Joseph Burnett b. ca 1765 Buckingham Co VA- d. bef 5 Feb 1845 Puncheon Camp Creek, Grainger Co TN, married about 1785 and had 8 known children. Joseph s/o Charles and Catherine BROCK Burnett. They arrived in Grainger Co TN about 1804 from Henry Co VA.or Pittsylvania Co VA. In one deed she referred to Thomas Acuff as her kinsman. I am trying to determine if Sarah is the daughter of Cain Acuff and his first wife Francis Carter or John Acuff Sr. born 1738/40 Chesterfield Co VA and his wife Sarah? Sarah named her first dau Francis "Frankey". I manage mine and my son's Family Finder DNA and a Brown first cousin's 37 marker DNA on Family Tree DNA. Our Family Finder data is on Gedmatch. I have been trying to find the answer to my Acuff delima for many years and am hoping that DNA will help.

Thank you for that explanation. I had wondered about the surname looking at your family tree. My brother, kit 21016 and I (I've only uploaded to Family Finder from another company) also descend from Thomas Acuff and Mary/Martha Saunders, through their son, Simeon.
