(As usual I am probably posting this in the wrong place, so I apologize in advance.)
I got my Ancestry DNA results back and Elizabeth Hornbeck came up as match. Now let me explain this. When I first started working on Lydia Ann (Gentry) Counce's ancestry hints, I thought I had found her going through to the Hornbeck Line (bought a book, spent 3 months tracing her all the way back). My first paternal cousin tells me I have her attached to the wrong parents, because she saw a letter another cousin had, but wouldn't let her copy, that said that Lydia said that her father was Martin Gentry, and her mother Margaret Stoner..not Joseph Gentry and Mary Oskins. So I disconnected (but didn't delete) all of the Oskins/Hornbeck stuff plugged in what my cousin said...and then I started to add her to WikiTree...I attached her to Margaret Stoner as her mother, but then my gut told me to wait on doing anything else (my gut is 85% correct most of the time). Then I forgot about it until I got my DNA results back.
I clicked on the Thru Lines for Elizabeth Hornbeck and I have a 4th cousin 1 time removed through a brother of Joseph.
I don't totally understand DNA...BUT... My logic says
1) if I have no other indicators through the Martin Gentry/Margaret Stoner doesn't necessarily mean that they aren't correct or that they are.
2) if I have an indicator that I am a DNA match to someone in that line, then they are more likely to be the parents as I thought in the first place.
My cousin insists that I'm wrong.
