Smith DNA Group R-M269-18 John Smith of Sudbury MA, also George Smith of Ireland NC

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.

John Smith was at Sudbury in 1647. He may have been John Smith, an early settler of Watertown or a relative of his. His wife’s name was Sarah. He had assigned him lot No 29 in the second squadron of the two-mile grant. The name Smith has been a common one in town.

2. George Smith b c 1725/1730 Ireland-Descendants include Willis Smith b 1750 IRE, Millington Smith, Cardwell Breathitt Richard Smith. Also Simon Smith, possible parent Richard Smith.  Locations: Edgecombe Co, NC

YDNA Kit N80502 (Oliver Smithb 1767 VT) and YDNA Kit 300102 (James Smith m Hannah Goodenow). 300102 matches Smith/Hunt of Sudbury MA, possible that father is Thomas Smith of John from Watertown MA. If so, that would show a YDNA relationship between Smith/Hunt and Smith/Drake.
Kit N80502 also believes descent from Smith/Drake, proven ancestors were in Orange County Vermont.



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.

Thank you

Becky Smith Morris

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.
