Leonhard Cagle came to this country form Germany in 1732. With him was a son David Cagle born in 1728. They first settled in Pennsylvania where Leonhard died CA 1754 and then David moved to North Carolina. By 1755, David and his family were living on the upper reaches of Deep River and in 1764 obtained land in Cumberland (now Moore) Co., NC. Before 1768, David moved to Rowan Co., NC then in 1779 to Mecklenburg Co., NC, that part that became Cabarrus in 1792. David Cagle, 1728-1784, apparently lived in Moore Co., NC between 1764 and 1768. His brothers, John, Henry, Charles and Leonard also had land in Moore County and some of their descendants still live there to this day. David Cagle’s son and grandson, Henry Cagle, Sr., 1761-1838, and Henry Cagle, Jr., 1780-1857, came to Hardin County, TN about 1830 where I sit writing this today. There were 4 generations between Henry, Jr. and me and I was born in 1940.

Thanks David - I appreciate your posting. According to my records, the Cagle's married into my Barrett line in Moore County in the 1700s. Christopher Columbus Cagle married my 4th great grandfather's sister, Mary Ann Barrett, b. 1759. They married in Moore County in November 1787 later moving to Sevier, Tennessee. Christopher Columbus Cagle was the son of Heinrich "Henry" Cagle who was the son of Leonhard/Leonhart Kegel b.1684 in Sembach, Kaiserslautern, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany.

I am glad I found this group. I am the 2nd great-granddaughter of Martha Morning Naylor born 1 February, 1840 in Moore County NC. I am also the 4th great-granddaughter of Hiram Melton born 12 May, 1809 in Moore County NC. There may be more, many of these families migrated to McNairy County TN before the Civil War.

Hello to all. I recently joined this group with the goal of forming a better understanding of who my ancestors were, how they were connected, and the role of DNA in establishing those connections. I have numerous well established roots in the Moore County area. Some of my family lines are the Chriscoe, Brown, Sanders, Maness, Dunn, Owens, Brower, Williamson, and Dunn and all the accompanying various spellings of each. I have performed the Family Finder, Y-67, and full mitochondrial testing at Family Tree. If you have any questions for me or thoughts you would like to share please feel free to do so. Good luck to all.

For the male line, I would (and have) completed the Big-Y to get your full SNP line and get placed on the Big Tree. It told me a lot. Also, when posting a question or comment, placing your FTDNA sample # helps others wishing to assist you.

Thank you for the advice. I will check on that. My FTDNA sample # is 893147

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?

Bob Carter - 691561 (posted by friend - Anne Evans 329437) Anne's email - Note - trying to verify various Carter lines with NC/VA connections. Thanks for your help! FYI - North Carolina researchers Genealogy Roundtable: Two-part seminar led by DNA expert is scheduled The MARC is honored to host Robert S. Lockett, Jr. to conduct a two-part discussion on DNA. The first session, “DNA and Genealogy: The Basics,” will be held on Saturday, March 2. Lockett will define DNA and examine its properties that are used for determining family relationships. Part two, “DNA and Genealogy: Beyond the Basics,” is scheduled for Saturday, April 27. This presentation will explore commercial DNA testing and how users can interpret the results. Both programs begin at 2:00 p.m. Lockett returned to his native Virginia following retirement as an engineer with Texas Instruments. He is a past president of the Wythe County Genealogical Society, and his DNA presentations are highly regarded across Virginia and North Carolina.

Hello, My great grandfather John Elebee Wood was born in 1857 in Moore Co, NC. Thanks to some good Bryant DNA matches I was able to determine that his parents were William Wesley Wood and Deborah Byrant, and have a good tree on the Bryant/Ritter side. However, I'm still stuck on the Wood side. According to the website "Moore County Wallaces", Wesley Wood was the son of William Wood d. 1840 and Catherine Hunsucker but I don't have Wood or Hunsucker DNA matches at Ancestry, 23andMe or FTDNA. If anybody has these surnames in their trees and has done autosomal testing at any of these three companies, please contact me. Thanks, Betty Summerlin

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.

Christie Moore: I am already a member of the Argyll group and have found three matches, minus two STRs, on my brother's dna. I don't know how to contact these other persons from that site? My McKinnons owned land on Rockfish Creek in Moore Co. David McKinnon born 1805 married Catherine "Katie" MUSE. I simply cannot get Katie into the right MUSE family (I think there was 500 families!)

I have Moore County lines. Still unraveling them but they were Moore and Smith. DNA strongly indicate Richardson, Furr, Maness and more ties. I also have alot of Scots lines but also, not from Moore county (that I have proven so far). I also have Mayflower Brewer lines by the way.
