Dee Ann, I was wondering if you thought that James' wife Mahala was the daughter of Leven(?) Benson? I believe Leven died in Lincoln county, Tennessee. thanks

This is the line of Reed Morris who supplied to us the Y marker profile for our Morris Family. He gives the wife of James G. Morris as Mahala Benson daughter of Elven & Chrischaney Benson. I have entered them on my tree. Will see what will turn up in the future.

Does having a DNA test help to confirm Morris or Brown, if the link is not through the maternal line? I know I need to get a male relative to take a DNA test.....but have not been able to. I am pretty much the only person in my family interested in genealogy.

since I do not know who you are "cb".

I can only tell you my personal DNA profile is in 5 different pools. My mtDNA runs through Morris Family and I have used other cousin's test to confirm my Paper Tree back through that line. In fact all my ancestors which appear on my 4th Generation Chart have been confirm by DNA.

You start with yourself (who ever you are) see if you match with parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, 1st, 2nd cousin on back. If two researchers are as far as 4th cousin or beyond you may or not may show a match on the "Family Finder" test.

Y marker test and mtDNA (goes back 10,000 years)can go back far than you will be able to find paper documentation.

I really can't say since I do not know who you are and how and if you fit on my tree.

Sorry Dee Ann, I thought you recognized me from our messages here and on ancestry. My line traces from Isaac and Elizabeth Morris, their son James, his son John James, etc.

he supplied his Y marker to the Morris Family he is my 4th once removed. He did not do "Family Finder" so I do not know if he and I would show a match. I have matched with 4th cousins. If you follow his line, I do not know.

I have supplied the mtDNA J1c8a to this couples descends.Elizabeth Brown back to Elizabeth Fox in Ireland.

Again just do your DNA test and see what "pop up".

Would it help you or would you be interested in seeing my daughters results?

She would be a more distant cousin than you. What is her mtDNA line (oldest female ancestress would be the same as yours).

that is what I thought.....I didn't think it would help. It will help me trace my line back through my maternal great great grandmother.
Would you allow me access to your ancestry tree?
