Can you provide sources for the recent change to Matthews-2627? A few of us who’re descended from Aaron and James (DNA confirmed brothers) had been looking into it for a while but hadn’t found any evidence of Thomas being the father. Based on his detailed will, that particular Thomas (the one in Halifax Co NC) doesn’t appear to be the father of Aaron or this particular James. For reference, see http://southernmatthews.com/1700s-1850s_desc_thomsr.html . I believe that given the DNA evidence that James and Aaron are brothers that this profile should return to Unknown First Name.

I see you added the DNA tag to your profile. Here are a few links & tips to help you along in the journey of WikiTree and DNA.

It's not hard to add DNA test information to profiles on WikiTree, just make sure you add the tests to the actual test participant's profile & set the Privacy to ‘Private w/ Public Biography & Family Tree’ to show the tester's part of our tree. For help see  How to DNA on WikiTree

Here's a great YouTube video with all sorts of questions answered Getting Started with DNA.

Please double check the GEDmatch ID #s in your DNA confirmation statement. It looks like your ID should read T815133, and R. Langgood's should read A450962. The statement should also be changed on these profiles: Russ-341 and Langgood-1. Thanks!

I see you already added a lot of people! I think there is a lot of information available for this cemetery. I believe Jillaine Smith did a lot of work with it.
