1). Our Haplogroup (which determines paternal lineage) does not match any of the other Hicks surnames in the YDNA/Surname project results found online. The biggest surprise I received this month was in discovering that our DNA ties strongly to the Boone line (Daniel Boone > Squire Boone > George Boone and Mary Maugridge Boone).
2). We are almost 100% European but with trace Native American DNA. Our older generations maintained that we descend from the Cherokee tribe, but we are at a loss and brick wall with our grt++ grandfather James Lawson Hicks b. 1809 VA (although no record - and we have heard KY, NC or WV possibilities).
Question: Is there any record of what happened to William Hicks who was an early settler of Boonesborough with Daniel Boone? Do you have record of any Boone marrying a Hicks? Is there any historical information that supports Daniel Boone or any other male Boone had children from Native American or Cherokee wives? Do you know the Haplogroup/YDNA of this particular Boone line?
Any information you can provide to the above would be most helpful.
