I just joined this group a few minutes ago, I am descended from Gideon Moore b abt. 1775 married to Sarah(Sallie) Williamson b abt. 1790 both of Moore County, NC. I perused your site group notices and most of your surnames are in my tree. Gideon's son, George Moore b 1833/34 married Mary Maness. Their son, Elias Moore I share with one of your members Does my 37 marker DNA automatically post or when does it?

Thank you Christie. I assume you are off the Moore Line? are you abt 8 generations back? If so, it would account for the low cm match.

8 generations back from what/who? I have 2 separate Moore lines. One from Johnston, Cumberland, Bladen counties. The other from Pitt, Greene, Craven counties. My Moore County family is Cox.

I seen Thos last in 1910 living with Walter in Carthage. They had 16 Children. Surely I pray someone can relate to wanting info. Im in that category R269 that is rare. Thomas was his oldest children, Haywood Starlin I seen was most active with children from persons he did not married. My grand father Henry B.Richardson is my grandfather. They lived near Noah and Elizabeth Richardson the minister early in moore cty. North Carolina. I would LOVE any infor and where to point me. I am just trying leave a tree and infor my children. I have my DNA on ancestry and my brother's is on Family tree. I have been linked to the Barton, O'Connell, Cagle family I don't how because I can't find that link.. I am trying to find my Richardson family link to the other families A few people I am close with in DNA are adopted. PLEASE if any has a clue I would be so thankful and Appreciated. Thank you in Advance Linda

Hello, Linda. I have researched your RICHARDSON family via online databases as well as on site at NC & TN & AL. My work is at, which is available free at the public library or a LDS history center. Go to & search the members list for my user name - GreenGrassofSummer. Click on my tree MA1 group - Tucker yDNA Project. Let me know if any questions or corrections. Sandra in Arizona

G. S. Tucker Hello and Thank you every soooo much for responding. I truly felt I have been in a fog for at least 14 yrs of researching. I thought I was born to a fathom family. I match DNA with people meaning my brother and I, but can't get anyone to speak about my family as I know the majority of them born in 1835 and after stayed in that area. So your response is GREATLY appreciated. Its my DNA on ancestry now as my brothers was taken early 2000's and they gave his dna the boot because of an upgraded test. Which I totally could not understand why! But those are the rules. Thank God I downloaded and also he is on Familytreedna. So I will exactly do what you stated. If you continue your helping hand, I probably will be contacted you. Again I so appreciate you Sandra!!!

I am descended from David Cagle, 1728-1784, brother of Henry Cagle that you guys are claiming. I also had a g/g/uncle and a g/g/grandfather (if I have the right person) in the 2nd mounted stationed at Clifton. I also had three g/g/grandfathers that fought for the other side in the 1st Confederate Cav. I might add that David Cagle, 1728-1784, owned land in Cumberland (now Moore Co., NC) as early as 1764.

I'm looking for the MUSE family of Moore Co., NC from which my great great grandmother came. CATHERINE (Katie) MUSE was born abt 1814 in NC. She married DAVID McKINNON, b September 10, 1805 in NC. I know his father was Hector McKinnon (Court Records ). I am familiar with many of the MUSE families of Moore Co. but cannot make Catherine Muse fit into any of them! I suspect she married so young, she is not found on any census records with a MUSE family. Catherine and David left NC and are found in Alabama and Mississippi before finally settling in Arkansas where he died June 8, 1873 in Pike Co. and she died February 7, 1888.

Not to tread on any toes, but since we are all looking for connections and if you have Scottish ancestry and your folks settled in the Argyll Colony (Cross Creek - Current day Fayetteville/Cape Fear River area of NC from Wilmington up and westward) then you can come join this group:

I do have some Scots and might have family from this region, but if you could give me 'county' names they became it would help me determine it.

Recently had C. C. Moore's DNA done at Ancestry and connected Joseph G.(1797) Moore's two sons--Henry W. (1825) and Patrick (1828). Both moved to TX before Civil War. I am new to this group through an earlier DNA test with family tree DNA. That the Moore's came from Moore County, NC is new to me, so I'm anxious to explore this new information. The whole family moved to Itawamba, MS about 1838. Help is appreciated

Due to my extremely close Y111 match to members of both William Maness & Amos Maness lines, I now believe that there was a Maness child that, for whatever reason, was raised as a Caudle. I believe very strongly that Amos Maness (husband of Mary Margaret Caudle) fathered a child, and that child was named Jackson Caudle - my great great great grandfather. I invite and encourage anyone who understands DNA better than me to disprove my theory.

James, by nailing down my terminal SNP, I have been able to isolate matches from 500YBP - 1000YBP. This helped with my placement within the Clan Munro Project groups. I have learned that clans are made up of several genetically unrelated families. I may have a Scottish surname but my genetics point to Lietrim, Ireland area. My root tribe may have been O'Rourke, O'Reilly, or O'Brien and could have been changed to Monroe so the family would fall under the clan's protection. This was common up until a couple of hundred years ago. My brick wall was my ancestor from Ireland and my DNA matches that. Verbally handed down through the generations had me being Scottish from the Scottish Clan Munro. It appears my surname originated from a Non-Paternal Event which I have learned through research to be quite common. By testing with the Big Y, I have isolated my true genetic relatives from the assumed ones. I have been in touch with several Monroe's I genetically match yet I never knew before genetic testing. We found we share the same brick wall. My two closest genetic matches are not even Monroes and we have yet to connect our common ancestor. I joined this project so I could monitor my results with the other Monroes that may not be part of the Clan Munro Project.

My BigY results are in, and my Y haplogroup is R-BY32729. Can someone help me prove I'm a direct descendent of Amos Maness as a result? Thanks. Sorry, this is completely foreign to me. :)
Debbie Woo
November 6 @ 4:28am
Mark Munroe so if I did the Y test and it wasn't the big one, I think it was the one just under the big one, and the results were M269 should it be upgraded? This is obviously a male relative I had it done on.
