Here is our current Monroe tree. We can only go back to PA 1700s. President James Monroe is a distant cousin of mine. He shares a Monroe ancestor of mine.
Following on from my previous post below which shows a section of the Scottish Surnames Map based on clusters of farmers in early census data, according to Dr Tyrone Bowes PhD, if the process below is followed with enough close matches then I should find that my ancestors came from one of the main Munro (Monro) clusters shown on the map in this post. In my previous post below the Monro surname on that map in the Perthshire area is the one shown at the bottom right on this map. If you look at this map you will find that Dr Tyrone Bowes PhD has used this method to identify several Monro/Munro areas of origin including that of the Munros of Foulis and Munros of Lochfyneside.
Hello, I noticed a lot of kits have a Samuel Munro as their most distant known ancestor. Was curious if my 5th great grandfather Samuel Munro may be already have descendants tested? Trying to find Samuel's parents.
Do the Munro's get a lot of Orcadian in their Gedmatch K15 results? I was told that it might be a connection to the Munro's of Foulis.
Here is our Monroe line. Joseph Monroe father was the Samuel Munro from PA 1700s. Colin Munro.

Not sure why, but on my mother's Oracle 4 Eurogenes K15 results show a lot of Basque. She also has a lot of Orcadian. Her Gedmatch kit is F444411 and mine is F348859. Here is her results.
My 5th Great Grandfather:John Munro (1728 – October 27, 1800), was generally referred to as 'Captain The Hon. John Munro of Fowlis' to distinguish him from others with the same name and rank. He was a Highland soldier who after the Seven Years' War received extensive land grants at Albany, New York, becoming a prominent Tory and merchant associated with Simon McTavish and the fur trade. Having gained a reputation for no-nonsense, he was made a magistrate and given further land at Vermont to bring Ethan Allen and the Green Mountain Boys to order. Ever the ardent Loyalist, Munro fought for the British during the American Revolutionary War which led to the loss of his land following the American victory. He re-settled in Upper Canada, where he became a Judge and was appointed to the first Legislative Council of Upper Canada.
Just joining the group after a wonderful weekend with Clan Munro in Asheville and ordered some additional tests to see how many cousins I have. Richard Munro, Williamsburg VA
