Smith DNA Matched Group GRP-R-M269-18
discussion of the Smith Official DNA Project group R-M269-18 that includes lineages that we believe all match together, even when the specific paper trail linkages between ancestors are unknown or cannot be proven.

Hello, My name is Becky Smith Morris, niece of Ronnie Smith who did our DNA testing, I handle the administration of our kit # **1018. Ronnie, who is my unlce, is a direct line from General. We need your help locating any and all ancestors of General's line as we have stalemated.
Ronnie a direct descendent of General Washington Smith b 1784 NC, lived Marlboro SC1800, Screvin Cnty GA 1813,d Wayne Cnty GA 1860? He was married to Laney Wiggins Liberty Cnty GA 1818. Direct Line Archibald - Wiliam -Henry (kit **1579 - 37 markers) and - Matthew (kit **1018 - 67 markers) Henry and Matthew were brothers but Ronnie's line is through Matthew.
I am seeing the names Simon, Benjamin,Levi, Willard appearing alot around the movement from North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. But cannot put a finger on the connection. Only connection is the DNA Group R-M269-18 where I am seeing Simon and Benjamin's name appear. I think that I did see Levi's name once but don't remember. They have lived next door to each other, on legal documents. etc. But still no connection as to a relationship. Possibly brothers, cousins,father, grandfather, uncles, I don't know I cannot put the connection there. There is also the possiblity that General either had a sister who was born in 1800 SC or a daughter at the age of 16 in SC but cannot find a record. We know that a census shows three people one being u nder age 3 female associated with General. We also know that a female named Lucretia Smith age 18 married the brother of Laney Wiggins, Peter Wiggins around the same time that General and Laney married in Liberty Cnty GA. Any help would be appreciated. Dont know if the link is somewhere hidden in your info or not. Have anyone done higher than a 67 in your group Is that feasible to do after doing 67markers? What is the protocol next at this point to finding information that is needed to go further back?
Open to suggestions.

For the Smith Official DNA Project (All Locations) a minimum of 25, or better, 37 YDNA markers, is strongly recommended. Many times one can appear to match other kits but the match falls apart after 12 markers. We do not attempt to match kits into groups on less than 25 with the exception of a strong paper trail or known family kinship with another tester.
