follow up on the question about the connection between Texas Fountano and the Fontenot

+5 votes
I was wondering if there is a follow up answer to the Fountano tie in to the Fontenot family. I have some new information. My dads Ancestry DNA came in  and I uploaded to GEDmatch. He is 74% sub-Saharan African,  2% North African, 13% European (that includes, Eastern European, a little Irish, Iberian, British, French, and Scandinavian, Caucuses was a little more significant) 3% Southwest and south Asian, 1% central Asian and Siberian, 2% Arctic/Beringia, and 5% American Indian. I also have another person on my and my uncle Bill (My dads full Brother) DNA match a person with sirname Founteno in his tree. They live in Kentucky but the Founteno name trace to Louisiana. My Fountano line goes to a Joe Fountano born in 1820 in Louisiana but lived in Texas, just east of San Antonio, Texas in the 1870 and 1880 census. Joe Fountano may have been a Fonteneau or Fontenot in Louisiana. By the way the person on our DNA match with Founteno I found his family leads to Fontenot from Natchidoches, La.
