This is a picture of my 2x great grandfather, Franklin P. Smith, with his 3rd wife, daughter, & step-daughter. He was born in Ohio in 1832 and spent most of his life in Cheshire, Ohio. I have no idea who his parents were. Even his death certificate lists them as unknown?? My chances at finding a DNA match are slim to none since it is a maternal line. Just wanted to join in with other Smiths. You never know what will turn up. :)
My Smith Y-67 results just came back and not as expected with the J-M267 Haplogroup. On the good side male Smith's hit even with a genetic distance of 7 which indicates the Smith line is solid for many years. Anyone else here with this haplogroup and any history associated with these Smith's? Above is my ancestor Needham Smith b. 1815 Alabama (father of Uriah, Josiah, Hezekiah, Zechariah, William Needham, Charity, Mary "Polly" & Nancy Smith) who settled in Conecuh County, Alabama.

This is my 2x great grandfather .. can someone guide me as what to do next with this information. I'm at a brick wall with his father. Are all the names in this Halogroup matches as well..
Well, the info and results from my FTDNA Big-Y DNA tests are in, sort of. My new Haplogroup is R-Y29085.
After downloading my results to YFull.com, I have been delineated to Haplogroup R-Y76055.
And this means?
I am checking this out.

This is a picture from my second cousin, Sylvia. She sent me this picture of Cornelius and Hubert. Cornelius Smith was an Uncle of her mother but unsure who Hubert is. Perhaps someone on here will recognize them. I also was given a baby picture of the two of them together. She says her mom talked about Cornelius a lot and spend time with him growing up.
Over 900 matches !

My Smith family lineage to General James Smith, would love to find a connection beyond Daniel Smith, Sr. born in Marlborough, UK circa 1610 and died in Chester, Pennsylvania in 1698. He would be my 9th great grandfather.
I'm looking for my ggrandfather's family. His name was Ulysses Grant Smith (b. 3-15-1866-Possibly in Illinois, d. 4-9-1919 in Sioux Falls, SD). I know he had a brother because I found a obituary for Claude Cyril Smith (b. 1888 (NE)-d. 1940 (TN)) that was labeled "Grant's nephew." Records show him using U.G. or Grant Smith. His death certificate was blank under parents names. I haven't found an obit for him. The first record I have for him is his marriage to my ggrandmother, Jenny M Hickok.
