Thanks Peter for your interest in John A McAnally. He is my second great grandfather. His mother Nancy Poe, gave birth to him evidently as a single mother in 1819. She subsequently married a Wm McAnally in 1823, the said Wm McAnally took John to raise. My Y-DNA test in 2004 matched only Jacksons of the I haplogroup, and subsequent male descendants of the Wm and Nancy Poe McAnally have proven to be of the R haplogroup.

Thanks for the kind remarks, Peter, regarding the Meet Our Members blog. And a big thank you for all you do too, especially with our Bahamian ancestors and DNA.

Peter, you are correct to point out a problem with Scarpino-5. Most likely, rather than 2 wives of the same Antonio, there is more than one Antonio. I think FS can give me some sources to clarify it. Remembered verbal comments from the family are insufficient to clear it up; 3 of them with whom I was acquainted have passed away.

Peter, There are two categories for the Bahamas:

Category:The Bahamas



Since your template puts profiles in "The Bahamas", do you want to merge the two Categories into Category:The Bahamas?

Hi Peter, I have tried several times changing William Louis Sloane's privacy level only to find after the tries a note saying that the privacy level for living people can only be"unlisted". Of all the many Sloanes in our branch there seem to be only two who have been DNA tested, this William and an Eric Sloane who is also descended from William Sloane 1824(Ohio). Eric tested with "23 and Me".

Thank You for your advice on adjusting my Y-haplogroup. I am so lost, when it comes to DNA. Also, I hope it works out, with Frances Driggers. I also read that she was from the Sarponi tribe. Robin Deerchaser is the one to talk to about Frances. -Ken
