Hi I am researching Francis Marion Boone. I have a few of dna matches that link back to him. I believe he was born around 1853. Maybe in Miss. He lived and died in Cherokee, Texas. He had a wife named Mandy or Amanda. Daughters named Pearlie, Francis & Melvan. From my understanding Melvan was mulatto. As was Pearlie and Francis. Apparently Pearlie and Francis both were quite fair skinned and passed for white. Melvan, however did not. The family lore is Frank Boone fathered all 3 with a Black woman named Julia Chaddick or Chaddrick. (From Georgia) One of Julias daughter's named Celia came to Texas from Georgia and Adopted Melvan as her own child. I also have match with a Troyce Boone from Texas as well, he falls around the 3-4 cousin range. If any of these names ring a bell or any one can help me further my search.... that would be splendid.

Hey everyone I'll try to keep it short. So, my brick wall for years has been John Boone b. 1755 York, PA. For a long time he was rumored to be related to the famous Daniel Boone line, but not proven due lack of evidence as to who his parents were. He claimed Daniel was his uncle in his Revolutionary War pension application. I ended up getting a yDNA test years ago which showed I was not a match for those who definitely descend from the Daniel Boone line. A theory that is out there is we possibly descend from a Boone female. Anyway, I just recently started looking around on myftdna and I'm hoping someone may have some advice about how to utilize these tools to attempt to solve this puzzle. One thing I found curious...when I looked at my matches there was one other Boone who's earliest known ancestor is my John Boon. However, there are also several others with the last name of Porter and I have never come across this surname before in years of researching my ancestry. Anyway, thanks for your time and I appreciate any input.

I have transferred my DNA from Ancestry & joined this group as my research so far is pointing to being a Boone descendent (Joseph from George & Mary). How or what do I need to do to see if this is indeed the case?

Hi Julie. Have you looked at your matches on FTDNA to see if there are any possible Boone matches?

I have and I come up with 5 people who have Boone in their surname list, but have no idea on how I am supposed to figure out which line we descend from. And in Ancestry I have quite a few more than that. But I notice that less than half my matches in FTDNA have a surname list.

I have numerous matches to Boons and Boones through both transferring my ancestry file and through the YDNA 37 test but even though I have established my tree back to the 1600s In England I have still not established a link to any of these matches. The links must be further back on my tree but there are no surviving church records to establish what the links are. Regardless of what your DNA results are you still need to be able to establish your line using traditional family history research using the documentary evidence. Over time the trees of those who test and do provide their trees may help with researching your line.

If you joined the group and transferred your DNA from Ancestry should you see your kit number in the DNA results in this group?

Hello, My name is Dorien Michael Gardner. My father was Doyle Richard Gardner but he was adopted. I never knew him as he was killed when I was 3 years old. My mother never talked about him as I believe it was too painful and I never insisted. He was born in Waco, TX in 1931 and his natural parents appear to be Richard T Boone and Viola Inez Clouse. My mother did say at one point that she believed that Boone was his actual surname and based on the DNA that is confirmed. Does anyone know of either Richard T Boone or Viola Inez Clouse who lived in Waco, TX around the 1930s? I am hitting a wall finding their respective parents.

Name: Inez Boone Gender: Female Residence Year: 1932 Street address: 426 Webster av J Residence Place: Waco, Texas, USA Spouse: Richard T Boone Publication Title: Waco, Texas, City Directory, 1932 is this whom you are speaking? If you have birth-dates or death dates it helps find the right person. There appears to be many Richard T Boone's.

What DNA tests have you or family members had? It might help to make connections with other lines.

My brother and I have both had atDNA tests. We're on GEDmatch (T533211 and T600835). My son has had mtDNA testing: his (and of course my) haplogroup is K1c2.

Hi Mary, Sorry to take a while to get back to you. I have been on the road for work. My Boon/es are from Somerset. Unfortunately there was no match between us on GEDmatch. I have just discovered my predicted haplogroup is I-M223 so no surprises there wasn't a link.

Thanks. I suppose it is still, however, possible that we're connected but that the amount of shared autosomal DNA is too small to register. Differences between my brother's DNA and mine, which result in known relatives (both close and distant) not showing as matches to him when they are clear in my case, and vice versa, lead me to make this frustrating conclusion!
