I know this posting is a couple of years old, but I'm wondering if there is any more information on the origins of George Smith, 1747, born in Culpeper County, DAR #A108695.  Name of parents? immigration of ancestors?

There are many family trees out there which have George 1747 confuse with George from York County--and his illustrious ancestors.

Yes, a male Smith is available, in progress.

Would a DNA test from another source be okay?

Wonderful! So you're saying THIS Shelton Smith, son of  Levi Smith and Nancy Agnes Lee?  Would love to have you join the Smith DNA Project by sending a gedcom of your direct line to info@smithsworldwide.org - Also, if you done DNA tests, please come up to FamilyTreeDNA and join the Smith Official DNA Project. The people who have tested on this line with YDNA testing are in Group GRP-R-M269-19

smithsworldwideI have more information on Shelton Smith & his descendants June 25, 2020 1

1. Since he did his YDNA so recently, probably won't be a need to get more sample. However, FTDNA will let you know if that's the case. 

2. Depends on what you want to do. You match into a group with other Smiths, GRP-I-M253-25 (and that includes your autosomal kit) . If there are other Smiths who have also done Big-Y, you'd be able to see what the matches are and the variances. I suggest you contact the other people who have done YDNA that your father matches with and ask them about that.

Sent you a message, also answering here. This is your branch.  I agree with you that I don't know of any proof of Isaac Smith m Elizabeth Teackle, will look and, if possible update the charts as maybe we can try to flush out another descendant of Smith/Teackle if there is one.  One main reason I don't beileve they are the same is they have different birth and death dates-one is in Russell Co VA, the other was in Accomack/Northampton Co VA. Here is where Isaac smith m Elizabeth Custis Smith are listed, are there any male Smiths out there that have this line for an ancestor? 

Also, have you done any type of DNA test? As you note, you don't have a YDNA tester to compare with, but if you have done an autosomal test, such as Ancestry or 23andme, you can do an autosomal transfer and then join the Smith Official DNA Project to compare.

I descend from William Branham Smith who married Elizabeth Childers.  He is the son of Isaac

Smith and Frankie (Sprouls) Childers .  

Your information is correct, for what we know.  Unfortuantley this line has been linked to Isaac smith who married Elizabeth Custis Teakle in many family trees, and I find no proof of that.

I was hoping this DNA site might clear things up.  I'm trying my hardest to get a male Smith to take a DNA test, but it is proving difficult.

Hi Richard

WONDERFUL!!!! WE have, right now,one YDNA tester for the Heinrich Schmidt line. You can see, on the link that goes to Heinrich (a little tree icon) that, on the branches line, the person who has this line has a kit #, a pedigree and a direct line showing descent.  He does not have a Smith or Schmidt match yet. To test for you, you would want to also do a YDNA test via FamilyTreeDNA, which would create a baseline. YDNA tests go male to male. For example, looks like this for the YDNA member who has tested.  Since you believe you are from a different son, Martin, you would still be presumed to carry the YDNA line down from Henry/Heinrich. The second thing that is needed is a good tree line so we can list just how you descend from Henry/Henrich. You can send a lineage in to info@smithsworldwide.org.

I'm new to this site and not to familiar with how it works. The information that I have gathered leads me to believe that I am related to Henry Smith through his son Martin. Any info on what I should do next would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Richard Smith.

I'm assuming you're talking about the matched grouping you're in, yes?  Read below and if I'm all wet in thinking this is what you're asking, please either be more specific or you can feel free to email info@smithsworldwide.org. You also may be reaching out to that member to compare notes. 

In the Smith DNA Project, matched groupings are created primarily on YDNA matches, ie, male Smith to male Smith to male Smith. When you look at the group, you will see, line by line, information about each person you match or, in the case of autosomal DNA, are presumed to match. The Early Ancestor column is to specifically get information on the member who has that line, ie, John W Smith b 1792 Warren Co NC-the email icon ot the right of that shows whether you can expect to contact them via this website. In the next column, you can click on the tree icon to see the top of the tree that person has submitted, ie, the earliest ancestor, the second icon is to look at the pedigree going up and the 3rd icon "R" shows that person's relationship to the early ancestor. The next few icons show what one's mtdna, or ydna, or X line would be. It may or may not be complete based on how much informtion on a given line is posted. The next column is a partially privatized kit # and then an indicator of what type of test the person has taken. YDNA tests are ONLY in a given group if they match on haplogroup and STR markers. The tree only or autosomal tests should be viwed with more caution; if the autosomal test has been verified with a green check mark, it means that that tester was found to match a YDNA tester who had also done autosomal and is thus presumed to be accurate.

You may indeed not know how people that match you on YDNA match you in particular. You can send the person a message or post about it here. That may be why you posted this. Overall. YDNA matches help target one's research, even if the answer to why there's a match is not immediately known.
