They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Laura Scott's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Laura or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Laura:
Hi Laura, I am the Great or Great Great Grand daughter of Daniel Carroll of Green pond Alabama, My Great Grandmother was Maggie Carroll. She is listed in the 1900 Census as a Grandchild living in the household of Daniel and Martha Shackelford Carroll. She never knew who her biological parents actually were. In other records on Ancestry.com, it says that her mother died when she was an infant, and her father James Daniel died 12/16/1899. I find it a strange coincidence that Daniel and James Carroll supposedly shared the same year of birth 1826. Do you have any information about either of them? Other records here list Daniel's father as John H. Carroll, siblings Susan, Effie, Emily, Catherine and Lemuel Carroll.
Hi Laura. I'm new to the site. I'm adopted and know some information about my birth parents. To answer a comment about "Nancy Izard", I found information about her in my ancestry from the "Snow" family paternal line. My GGG Grandfather was Levi Snow b.1797 d.1824. He was married to Nancy Jones whose parents were NANCY IZARD and Arthur Middleton. From my notes, Nancy Jones had 8 children. I found all of this information on Ancestry.com
I have two different New England Hatch lines in my own ancestry, three if you count the family my grandfather's sister married into. I'm always curious when I come across another one to see if they are related. I've been working on LDS Mexican Colonias of late, thinking that it might pose an interesting challenge. There's a fair-sized LDS Hatch clan, including the current Senator. That's what I followed back this time.
It would appear that while you & I are 10th cousins, with common ancestor John Bridge-134. I didn't find any Hatch connection. (Yet.) Nice to meet you, cousin!
