Hemphill/Watkins Missing Branch to chromosome 8 DNA Match

+3 votes
SEEKING MISSING LINK! I received a message from June Coker McNew. She stated that I matched 21 of the kits she manages, with the largest matches on Chromosome 8. All are on her Hemphill/Watkins line with ranges of 14-36 cM, estimated 3rd-4th cousins. Her Hemphill family  were in South Carolina before early 1800, and mainly in northeast Georgia since 1820.

Easter-736, Ancestry A919856
June Coker McNew, T006517. She sent me a copy of the 21 members that I match. 

Can you help me find the ancestor to the DNA connection?

Hi! I follow the Watkins surname... I'm a descendant of John Watkins of Virginia (born about 1752). Who's your Watkins connection?

Can you check your DNA against mine in Gedmatch? See if we match on Chromosome 8, or any other. (I haven’t gotten very far on my father’s side, but they were in that Georgia/Alabama area.)

My family lines: 

Father: Easter,Thompson, Smith, Nickil, Dunaway, Cross, Stembridge, Ham, Tindall, Rucker, Tinsley, Wood, Amos, Garter


Mother: Sutton, Ellison, Forbes, Minick, Berry, Williams, Swafford, Alt, Dill, Moore, Stuart, Winn, Sutliffe, Wein, Barrett, Charter, Clifton, Tyson, Dalton, Mayner, Allison, Harding, Hutchins, de la Force, Randolph, Baker, Baldwin, Granger, Curtiss, McGuire, Baldwin, Worden, Drew, Moler, Stacy, Randall, Pardee


I can do that tonight... your GEDMatch # is h A919856 ? (from your profile)

Mine's T227726 (from my profile)

Cheers, Liz

sorry for the delay - just checked in GEDmatch & the results:

No shared DNA segments found

My grandmother was a Watkins. I can go back several generations on the Watkins side. They were in Georgia for awhile.

So were mine! Asa (son of John, whom I mentioned earlier) was born in Georgia in 1777.
