Today I am going to do something no one else will tell you, Don't buy DNA tests! They are a waste of money and they are a endless rabbit holes of failed dreams, Yes it can solve your riddle, but not you. You can buy a real test its the full sequence, And that test is the ONLY test you want to buy that will do the job, it is very expensive, but it is the only test that will not get you an email from the company saying you need to test deeper! DON'T DO IT.

Don't waste money on ancestry.com test or 23 and me tests. The Only tests I recommend are FTDNA full sequence tests

Are you related to the Richard Exeter line? On ancestry and according to my Grandads hand made family tree from like 40 years ago. I’m related to the martins of athelhampton from the second wife of William Martin/martyns son Richard.

As part of an annual check-in of the WikiTree US Presidents Project we are asking members if they are planning to continue their contributions to the project. We are establishing a page where everyone can identify the President or Vice President that they wish to manage. Just respond to this message to let me know 1) Are you planning to continue with the Project and 2) do you have a specific President or Vice President that you are interested in.

Hello David:

I think we are a Martin DNA match. I've been looking to connect our ancestor Absalom Decatur Martin with his long lost family... I suspected they came from Virginia as I have found several other DNA Martin matches who trace to Virginia, but lost the branch from which they came. I made an accident on my tree that led me to a Captain Thomas Martin, father of Pleasant Martin, whom I've found in countless searches for my own Absalom and alleged father named Samuel Martin. My Absalom was born circa 1772 in Abbeville, SC. The only possible geographic Martins in that area I can find would be Charles Caffrey Martin, who would have been his father. Looking at descendants of these line and the many many DNA matches on GED, I believe this is the father of my Absalom. You share a DNA match with another David (Martin) Lindsey) on here, whom you said you matched with. So by reason of inference, I assume you and I are of the same tree as he is of mine... I am not very good at Wikitree and use mostly Ancestry. My GED kit# AL5646119 and dad's # XU7919291 --since the other David (Martin) Lindsey matches both my dad and me, either you probably about 10 generations back, from the same line, or we just have a strong enough Martin DNA pattern that it carries through. I'd love the opportunity to exchange thoughts and information. My email is [email address removed] Yours sincerely, Albert Fox

Hi David,

You could add a 1776 sticker to Isaac Shelby who had land where the Battle of King's Mountain occurred. I did not find your ancestor yet. By the way the two sources you sent to me, are a log in for one site, and the other is information about a creek. You will need a source that actually says Isaac was in the Revolution.Thanks for contacting me..

Be sure to add the Civil War Sticker below the Biography line.

Thank you for your offer of help. I have uploaded my DNA to GEDmatch and entered the number on wikitree. Slow going for me. I have limited time.

Thanks for you comment. I am taking this tree slow. I've been researching my tree on ancestry and family search for about 5 years. Watching utube to get more education. Have decided to start back at the bottom to reconfirm my sources and break through brick walls. I've taken 23andme and ancestry dna tests. You may view my public RobertsClarke tree on ancestry. Advice is appreciated. Thanks. Mary

You must be reading Jay Guy Cisco's book, Historic Sumner County, Tennessee. Great book for Bledsoe, Cage and Douglass researchers. That is my Douglass line by the way. That book was very helpful to me in my early days of researching my family tree.
posted by David Douglass

Thanks for the interesting post regarding Douglas connections. I knew that you had Bledsoe connections. A very prominent family in middle Tennessee.

posted by David Douglass
Yes, you are correct. I thought I put Mackrill.
