I've a question about the Deaton family. I have a an ancestor by the name of Rhoda or Rhody Deaton DOB about Jan 1832 who appears to have migrated from NC to Cherokee Co Texas. I'm searching for a connection to learn more about this ancestor. She's listed as Mulatto on Texas census records but my DNA matches suggest a Scottish connection. Any suggestions are welcomed.

Garry, I apologize for not responding to your request. A good portion of the past two years have been occupied with SAR, serving as President of the Capt. John Collins Chapter in Marietta, GA. It appears we have a great deal to be thankful for as descendants of Patriots. Our meetings are via Zoom, which is doing a good job for us. We have Zoom State meeting scheduled for Sat. July 25th. Keep in touch and stay safe. Earl Cagle, Sr.

Kimberly, I posted a message a few days ago that shows my Cagle connection to Moore County. See at the top. I am descended form David Cagle, 1728-1784, who had land in Cumberland, now Moore, from 1764 until 1768. David had four brothers, John, Henry, Charles and Leonard who also lived in Moore County. My email address is or you can respond here if you wish.

My Cagle line starts with Leonhardt (German immigrant), his son Henry (my Patriot ancestor), his son Peter who came to GA from NC just before the Civil War. Peter's wife was Rachel Boling, whom I am trying to trace. Rachel's father is possibly Benjamin Boling. They were married in NC. Any information would be appreciated.

Troy - Love to know how you connect with the Maness family. There are a large number of men that have been tested that likely descend from William Maness Sr. [d. 1787 Moore County, NC]. Many Maness researchers have contended that William Sr. was born in Scotland but to date we have not uncovered solid proof. The Maness DNA project has a great analysis of the Y-DNA results at

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.

My mother was a Maness. Her father was a Maness and her mother was a Moore. I live in Finger, Tennessee (is part of Mcnairy County/Chester County). I live on the Chester County, side but our families grew up in McNairy & some later moved to Chester side. It’s basically all really the same where we live. I can be in downtown Finger in a few minutes. Our Manesses come from Moore, NC. I’m not sure if our Moore’s did, but they come from North Carolina. My Grandfather’s line goes: His father Robert Lee Maness, William Martin Maness I do know my grandfather called William by Bill, William Jahew Maness, Shadrack Staton Maness. Shadrack was from Moore County.

Hi all from Australia. Just joined. I'm related to the Morgan family, not sure how exactly, but hopefully I'll work that someday.
Morgan Jackson

Thanks for joining. Based on and initial review your Y-DNA match it looks like your common male ancestor may be several hundreds ago. Likely outside of the genealogical timeframe. I'll keep reviewing and let you know if I can narrow down the window. Thanks again - Morgan
