DNA Haplogroup: G2a3b1a1a confirmed by FamilytreeDNA

Comparison to other Morimores in the Mortimore one name study shows no match to any English Mortimore. There is a match to a Mortimore with Scotish roots.

This makes sense as our earliest traceable Mortimore was William born abt 1740. In 1768 William Mortimore is listed in Rowan Co., NC Tax list of Capt. Thomas Donnell. Guilford County, NC was formed from part of Rowan County in 1770. The state of NC granted five hundred and twenty-six acres of land in Guilford County, in a deed bearing the date of 13 Nov 1779, for fifty shillings for every hundred acres. It was on the Haw River and bounded by land of John Nicks and Samuel McCrackens.

From 1781 to 1788 William Mortimore was on four grand juries in Guilford Court of Common Pleas

1790 Census William is listed with 3 males and 2 females.

This is significant in supporting a Scottish origin because this area of North Carolina was populated by immigrants From Scotland and Germany. They came to Philadelphia and then traveled overland to settle in North Carolina. The german immigrants settled somewhat south and west of the Scottish groups that settled along the Haw River.

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Dan or other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA. Y-chromosome DNA test-takers in his direct paternal line on WikiTree:
  • Dan Mortimore: Y-Chromosome Test, haplogroup G2a3b1a1a1
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
  • Dan Mortimore: AncestryDNA Maternal Lineage (discontinued), Ancestry member Danmortimore1
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage (beta) of DNA with Dan:

Hi Dan,

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!

Pre-1700 ancestors can be shared by many descendants, so collaboration is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.

The Scotland Project may fit your research focus. If not, use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find other possibilities. Review the project page to learn about resources and guidelines as well as how to collaborate with the project members.

Have questions? Ask in the comments section of my profile.

Remember to cite reliable sources in pre-1700 profiles you manage, or edit. (See:https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Pre-1700_Profiles#Cite_reliable_sources).

Hi Dan

Thank you for signing the Honor Code and for adding your DNA Test information to your profile on WikiTree. Your information will be propagated to the profiles of your parents and your ancestors within about 24 hours of being added. It will also propagate to the profiles of the descendants of your ancestors, so they may see your information under the heading "DNA Connections" just as you can see theirs.

Getting started with DNA outlines how to proceed to use your DNA test information on WikiTree and DNA is a link to a collection of links about WikiTree's many features involving DNA.

The DNA Connections list on your profile will provide a visual way for you to find potential relatives on WikiTree who have also added their DNA test information. Using DNA tools at sites like GEDMatch.com, if you find a relative that matches your DNA sufficiently and you have genealogical sources for the intermediate relationships, you can mark the specific parental relationships back to the most recent ancestor that you both share as "confirmed with DNA." For details, guidance, and examples of how to properly document DNA confirmations, see DNA confirmation.

To find other potential relatives, continue adding sourced profiles for other lines until you can connect on all branches. The more branches you are able to add the greater the likelihood of finding potential cousins to match with. The process of identifying which branch elements of DNA relate to will better enable you to find matches that relate to the particular branches you are researching.

Check out the How-to pages for some quick tips on working with both the Wiki pages and our other members. There is some great information on those pages.

Have fun!

do you think that Margaret McCord also may have had a daughter named Eleanor van Horn that may have married a Daggett?
