SMITH Official  DNA PROJECT REPORTS -Groups -Short List
Each Smith DNA Project group below represents a distinct family group.  Each group shares a common ancestor in the participant's male lines, proven by the YDNA results, but the specific paper trail connections may be unknown.  Matches are not always perfect and may be refined as additional markers for given kits are taken, including subgroups. As variations increase in results from others in the group, the more likely it is that the common ancestor is more generations removed from others in the group. The group numbering is simply sequential- R-M269, for example, is the 3rd unique group from the Haplogroup R-M269. The haplogroup is using the FTDNA shorthand haplogroup conventions.  Kit #s are partially privatized.
To form a YDNA based grouping, there must be at least 2 good YDNA matches based on 1. at least 37 markers 2, known and proven tree match along with less than 37 markers or 3 known and proven kinship if less than 37 markers. The groups may also include autosomal, mtdna and tree only participants based upon tree lines. The latter are presumed to be true but have not been proven. If you are a male Smith or a female who has male Smith kin that can do a YDNA test for you, or you are a male Smith who has done an autosomal test but not YDNA, we recommend you do so. We also have groups for those that have proven autosomal Smith/Schmidt matches -if you have autosomal matches, please encourage your matches to upload (free) their dna to FamilyTreeDNA and join the Smith Official DNA Project at FamilyTreeDNA.

If you know a better match, or one that should be made, let us know.

Smith DNA Group GRP-I-M223-1 - Lawrence Smith b 1797 Surry Co VA
Locations: VA, Isle of Wight, VA; Wake, NC; Monroe Co GA

This is one of 2 main groups that claims descent from Nicholas Smith m Elizabeth Flood of Surry Co VA. Nicholas named, among others, two sons, William and Lawrence. One YDNA tester has a very strong paper trail line from Lawrence born 1797 VA that includes a son named Flood Smith. Locations include Brunswick Co, VA.Another matching tester is a descendant of Edward Smith b Dorothy Hardeman Owen. This line found in Oglethorpe Co GA. The third member in this line has a Lawrence that may be from Cumberland Co VA.

We would like to have additional Smith YDNA testers to prove this line, including any and all male Smith descendants from lines that were in 1820, 1830, 1840 Upson Co GA and Ogletree Co GA, as well as Wake Co NC.

Lines and Locations: Nicholas Smith is said to have had the following chldren, per will.

  • Nicholas Smith b 1682 d 1730 Westmoreland Co VA - no specific YDNA tester for this line.Note that he has a son Peter of Westmoreland Co VA. There is another distinct DNA group that lays claim to Peter Smith of Westmoreland, Haplogroup J-M172  
  • John Smith b 1685 m Mary Price: Children: Arthur Smith, John Smith-no specific YDNA tester for this line
  • William Smith b 1695 d 1750 m Ann Isham- Children mentioned in will
    • Josiah Smith b 1728 Sussex Co VA YDNA tester for this line- R-M269 haplogroup. 
    • Cuthbert Smith b 1720 Surry Co VA. Descendants in Jones Co GA, Oglethorpe Co GA, Talbot Co GA -Possible I-223 haplogroup 
    • William Smith b 1730 Surry Co VA-No YDNA tester for this line. 
    • Isham Smith d 1795 Sussex Co VA No YDNA tester for this line.
    • Sarah Smith
    • Lucy Smith
    • Susannah Smith b 1737
  • Lawrence Smith b 1687 Surry Co VA d 1746 Isle of Wight VA. -YDNA tester for this line-I-M223 haplogroup. Son Flood Smith to Northampton Co and Wake Co NC.

Smith DNA Group GRP-I-M223-3 - James M Smith b 1810 GA (or SC)
Locations: GA; Lee Co MS; Itawamba Co MS

James M Smith b 1810 GA (or SC) Descendants in Lee MS, Itawamba MS

James M Smith that our DNA traces back to the surname RAINEY/RANEY. My YDNA matched folks with the last name RAINEY/RANEY. as did a 3rd cousin on a different branch from James M. Smith our progenitor. We determined that there was surname change event that occurred with James M Smith or prior to him, which no one has any info on him prior to 1840. and believe all the records were destroyed in Georgia because of the Civil War. Rainey researchers have not been helpful as they cannot find any possible links between our James M Smith and any of their Raineys/ Raneys in the geogrpahical area during his timeline.
