I am trying to contact people that descend from any Rouse family in North Carolina and/or Georgia that have taken an autosomal (aka Family Finder) DNA test. My 2nd-great-grandmother was Angeline ROUSE, born 23 Sep 1821 in Georgia. She married John Christopher SNELL. I believe her father was possibly Reddin (aka Redding) Rouse, born c 1796 in North Carolina, married Nancy (last name unknown). Redding & Nancy had children named James (born c 1817, married Martha Sutton), Angeline (perhaps), Mary, Thomas, Matilda, Ellen, Louisa.
Reddin Rouse lived in Twiggs county, Georgia by 1820 and in Houston county, GA by 1827.
I am hoping to use DNA to locate my Rouse family (i.e. Angeline's family line). I have tested (both my dad and me) with both ancestryDNA and FamilyTreeDNA and uploaded our results to Gedmatch. Please, if you've tested your DNA and descend from a Rouse that was in NC or GA, contact me so we can exchange test ID #s and see: 1) if we share DNA; and 2) if so, what chromosome & segment do we match on? I have a match with a descendant of a Bennett Rouse, but he doesn't know his lineage. I also have a match with a descendant of Chloe ROUSE (1787-1866) who married Elijah BURNHAM (aka Burnam). They lived in Duplin, NC and later moved to Georgia (Twiggs, Macon, Houston counties). Another match has a Frances ROUSE (1723-1790) who married Jonathan DAWSON and was from North Carolina. Some trees show her as daughter of Alexander Rouse 1690 Norfolk, VA -1778 Wilmington, New Hanover, NC (son of John Rouse/Ross) & Elizabeth Sanders b 1692 Isle of Wight, VA.
Do any of these names ring a bell with anyone? Even if you haven't tested your autosomal DNA, if you know anything about the parents of any of these Rouses it can provide a clue. Thanks very much!
