Me and my 1930 Ford fruit truck can be seen around the Orlando, Fl area and in local parades. Besides restoring vintage cars I enjoy photography and genealogy.

Hello, Lawrence. Your are a match to my son, Michael Lawrence Creel at family tree dna. Mike also matched a Jeanne Gray, whose tree show the following Gilbreaths, John Wesley Gilbreath, b. about 1750 Mecklenburg, NC, Samuel 1787 NC and Terrissa Gilbreath b. 1821 unknown location. You and Jeanne Grey match Michael on the 8 th chromosome. Michael's oldest known documented ancestor is William W. Creel Sr of Barnwell, SC. d. Barnwell 1837 I have strong indications that William was a descendent of Thomas Creel died Barnwell, SC 1809, son of Lazaraus Creel of Robeson County, N.C. The tool that estimates distances between Galbraith matches show that Mike Creel's surname changed at over 90% most likely in N.C. within 8 generations. Our Creel surname disappears between 1700 and 1750 approximately. By the way you could also pass as my late husband, Gerald Howard Creel's twin. chuckle. Took be back a wee bit. regards Jeanne Creel (Mike's mom).

I recently completed a FTDNA Y-111 test. The results place me in Group1 and I share a 111 marker match with James Bartrom Galbraith who traces back to James Galbraith (b.1666) of Ulster, Ireland who emigrated to the colonies about 1718 with his 3 sons – John (b.1690), Andrew (b.1692), and James (b.1703). They settled in Pennsylvania. I share an 110 marker match with Joseph Galbraith who, like me, traces back to John Galbraith and Maria Antonia Tiofila Mendoza who married in Monterey, CA in 1856. They would be my 2x great grandparents. The trick is in connecting John back to James (1666). US Census and voter records indicate that John was born in anywhere from 1828 to 1833. 1830 seems to be favored. These censuses indicate that John was born in Ohio and his parents were born in Pennsylvania. Joseph’s wife, Sharon, has suggested that the lineage is probably as follows: 1. James Galbraith (1666-1744) & Rebecca Chambers (1670-unk), then 2. James Galbraith (1703-1768) & Elizabeth Bartram (1714-1799), then 3. Col Bartram Gillespie Galbraith (1738-1804) & Ann Scott (1741-1793), then 4. Dr. Samuel Scott Galbraith (1760-1847) & Margaret unk (1771-1801), then 5. James Galbraith (1799-1880) & Susannah Sailor (1802-1872), then 6. John Galbraith (1828-1890) & Maria Antonia Tiofila Mendoza (1831-1904) I have been unable to confirm James #5’s birthyear as 1799, nor that this James married Susannah. I have also been unable to confirm that John #6 is the son of James #5. There is also the suggestion in other genealogy sites that John #6 was actually born in 1833 and is the son of John Galbraith and Sarah Williams who married in Jefferson, Ohio. I have been unable to find any information about John or Sarah nor confirm that they had a son John. Can anyone shed any light on the above? Thanks.

let there be light: "the marriage of John Galbraith to Maria Antonia Teophila Mendoza at the Carmel Mission in California in 1856. Eleanor discovered, using the largely illegible marriage certificate that was mostly prepared in Latin, that his parents were ‘Joanny’ and ‘Serae’ (John and Sarah) ‘Ghibred’. Their first child (‘illegitima’ as John was not a Catholic at that time) was Perala, born in 1852" YOU need to find a Sarah

Bill: You mentioned a marriage between John Galbraith and Sarah Williams on Jan 11, 1821, possibly in Bellefonte, PA, with John being the son of Robert and Mary Dill Galbraith. You also cite Mary's connections to Ohio. Do you have any idea where John and Sarah lived over time? My 2x great grandfather was born in Ohio, with parents born in PA. Also my Y-111 DNA matches with Bartrom Galbraith who descends from Robert's brother William. My 2x great grandfather's first born son after marriage in 1856 was named Robert. 1st son was Francisca, but 2 yrs before marriage to Maria Antonia Mendoza.

Hello all I am forris hudkins and I match 13 Galbraiths and Creels stating in the 1700s and going back into the 1500s. Would appreciate if anyone has any knowledge why my Big Y DNA is showing these matches.

I just went in and found you, Forris. I share distant autosomal matches with you on FamilyTree and on Ancestry and see you as a distant Y-DNA cousin. I see a number of shared affiliated family surnames. You have a cousin, Julie Hunt, who is doing a surname research for the Hudkins of your family line. You might look at the matches on WikiTree. I'll do some more research.

Sorry all. Been off the web for some time due to work requirements. Forgive me for saying thank you for your comments. Dana, what do you mean by a " non-paternal event"? Do you mean birth without one parent? James I Appreciate the offer. Through the DNA , can you tell in what time frame we match the Gailbraiths? we have several Gailbraiths matching as well as Creels and Wilsons at genetic distance of three. We can only take our Hudkins lineage back to Bennett Hudkins circa Born the 1753s. They alternated in public documents between the name Hudkins and Hoskins. From Bennett I come through Richard Hudkins ( 1779), Bennett Ingram Hudkins ( 1807), Emmitt I Hudkins ( 1855) , Forris W Hudkins ( 1890) . The hudkins name came out of thin air as of Bennett with no records or official trace before him. All help is greatly appreciated. Julie hunt Hudkins has done lots of work and is convinced that we are Scottish but also hitting this brick wall as all before us have. Hoping that the DNA can break this wall down.

Forris: You are from 20 to 28 mutations from the Galbraiths of Group 1, plus your terminal SNP is R-BY122550 , these items put your most recent common male with Galbraith and also Creel at 1000 AD (approximately). You and the Galbraiths parted at about R-S8368, This was before we had surnames. So your line has followed a different course for many centuries. You and Galbraiths are now about 36th cousins. Check back if you wish, kind regards, Bill Gilbreath

This was a wonderful link. Thanks for posting. When researching the name Culcreuch, I did not find much except Culcreuch Castle, but I am intrigued by the fact that if you move the L behind the e or u the name Crel, Creul, appears. Coincidence or by design? Perhaps Creel was originally a password code or alias created by the Galbraiths themselves to hide in plain sight or escape to safety and identify themselves later to other family members anywhere they wandered.

I am trying to find source information on Neal Gailbraith (sp?). I am, I believe descended from John Williams and Katherine Gailbraith (according to family history and DNA testing), but I would love source information on where in Scotland/Wales we came from. Any information would be helpful.

Rachel- Have you taken an autosomal DNA test? We have several testers from this line which is Group 7 if you are speaking of John C Williams 1720-1783 and Catherine Culbreath. I have only seen a US and Intl Marriage Record with the birthplace of WL for John

All I have is the grave marker of John Carouth Williams 1808-1896 showing him as a great great grandson. Guessing Neil was born 1690-1700 as his daughter Katherine (married to Welshman John Williams was born around 1720 in NC.

Hello from Patrick Dana King's sister Paulette Sue King-Marschalk ("Sue") . I am the family genealogist and new to the Family Tree DNA website and have soooo much to learn! I had Pat take the Y37 test because he is the only surviving male from our grandfather Robert Iredell King and a direct male line King back to Richard King, b. 1705 in Ireland that I have been able to document. DNA test matches to other descendants of Richard b.1705 have confirmed my tree to that point. Richard and most of his grown children ended up in Rowan County and Iredell County, North Carolina. Our John King's son John 1743-1808 took his father's Revolutionary War land grant in what is now Williamsport, Tennessee, John's son Peter Claywell King's son William Claywell King, 1854-1900 and his family ended up in Bell County, Texas where our grandfather Robert Iredell King 1878-1925 was born. Our father Patrick Longan King 1923-1996 was born in San Antonio, Texas as was Patrick.

This picture is from about 1890 in Robeson County, North Carolina at the wedding of Charles Peabody Culbreth and Fannie Hilliard (center). His brothers are Joseph Warren Culbreth (left seated in buggy), a sister, Lucy Culbreath is standing near Charles at center, brothers Malcolm and William Kemp Culbreth in foreground, and in far right is a brother John Thomas Culbreath seated in buggy. We are currently housed in Group 13 in the DNA Project.

Cool picture! My husband is a Galbraith (his family came from Ireland to Canada) but as I was searching my family tree on my mothers side(this is his wife posting), a distant relative of mine married a Culbreth. Earnest Culbreth. They were from Belton, Anderson County, South Carolina. Might be distant relatives of your Culbreths.

Did you, per chance, Phillip, descend from the Neil/Neal Galbraith/Culbreth (1700-?) - Flora McKethan (?-?) line? That's as far back as I've been able to get, thus far, and some of my sources are kind of sketchy.
July 6, 2018 @ 6:45am
There is a connection but I believe it has been lost. I am familiar with the Neil Galbraith line, but this list is from Virginia state line and later came to NC. It is likely the lines were very closely related.
