It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with Michelle:

Hi Michelle,

I've adopted the page of the Czech composer Josef Suk.


Please add it to Czech roots. Thanks! DET

I sent this message to Jimmy Smith who posted Powers 1620:

Thank you for adding Powers 1620. This is concerning Barnabas Crawford Powers.

Elizabeth D Harvey was not Barnabas Crawford Powers' wife. The Harvey's lived and died in Perquimans and Chowan Counties, NC.

Barnabas Crawford Powers circa 1772 Anson, later Richmond Co NC to 26 Jan 1842 Montgomery Co TN was married to ELIZABETH NEWBERRY, 20 Jul 1773 Anson, later Richmond County NC - 20 Oct 1845 Palmyra, (according to her tomb stone) Montgomery County TN. This has been proven through Ancestry'a ThruLines DNA matches to Elizabeth's father William and her half siblings Jonathan, Joseph, Nancy, William Jr, and John, all of which were named in their father's will. And ThruLines DNA matches for Elizabeth and Barnabas' children Arthur N, William B, James S, Nancy and Barnabas C Powers.

I discovered this when I was reviewing Barnabas’ property sales in Richmond County NC. In 1814, he sold 75 acres of land that was not granted to him, nor that he purchased. In the grantor deed, the 75 acres were sold along with his 25 acres of land granted to him in 1795. The 75 acres were referred to in the deed as land previously owed by William Newberry (1729-1793) that was a left to his two daughters Elizabeth and Martha in his will.

Michelle, Is there a way to correct this information?

I know that this will only be read on Powers 1620 by someone who scrolls down, and not posted elsewhere, as there is no profile manager. I am too new to Wikitree to have enough contributions yet to adopt the profile.

I'm not the profile manager so I'm not sure why you sent this to me. I'm not on the trusted list either. Bobby Adams is the profile manager so you will need to contact him. See https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Powers-1620

I have to question "this has been proven through Ancestry's ThruLines DNA matches". Was any verification done beyond ThruLines? ThruLines is not telling you or confirming that a specific ancestor is your ancestor. These matches use family trees that are user generated and no verification is done to determine if they are correct. Powers-1620 does have a profile manager. Are you talking about a different profile by chance?
