CWO4 Dudley Marshall Satterwhite, USN Ret. b. 30 July 1938, Crockett, Texas, Dr. Monroe Arthur Thomas M.D., birth doctor, m. 19 Dec 1959 (1) Brenda Brigid Brady, Millington, TN. She was born 18 Feb 1939 in KY d. 31 Dec 2000 in MS m. (2) 27 Sep 2010, Patsy Jane Cherry Gibbs, RN, a schoolmate from first grade in 1944 until graduation in 1956 in Crockett, Texas. She was born 11 May 1938, and is a graduate of the Jefferson Davis Hospital School of Nursing affiliated with the University of Houston. Marshall’s 26 year navy career was from June of 1956 until Dec 1982. Veteran of Vietnam stationed at Danang Air Base, RVN with VQ1 Squadron Detachment Bravo and aboard several aircraft carriers with special short missions in the war zone. Four overseas assignments, family included: 1960-1962 - NAS Port Lyautey, Morocco (one month with US Embassy New Delhi, India); 1966-1968 - NS Argentia, Newfoundland, Canada; 1971-1974 - NAS Agana, Guam with VQ1 (several detachments to war zone); 1977-1979; NAS Cubi Point, Philippines with VC5. Helicopter rescue crewman 1959, transport aircraft flight engineer 1960-66, aircraft maintenance officer 1966- 82. As far as Royal connections go I found in Wikitree that, King Edward III Plantagenet, is my 19th Great-Grandfather the connection is paternal and goes through Amy Mitchell. My parents: Frank Satterwhite and Elizabeth Glenn, from my mother's family line: my fourth cousins once removed; Admiral Thomas Moorer (the best CNO the USN ever had, please read about him in Wikipedia) and his brother Vice Admiral Joseph Park Moorer. From my paternal line, General Ernest Garlington, is my fourth cousin twice removed he was awarded the Medal of Honor for gallantry at the Battle of Wounded Knee, Indian Wars. I am the proud Great Grand Nephew of Confederate soldiers: James Madison Satterwhite, CSA; Benjamin F. Satterwhite, CSA; Henry Alexander Satterwhite, CSA and their brother, Francis Marion "Frank" Satterwhite, CSA, is my Great Grandfather.

Lt. Dean Edward Hallmark, US Army Air Corps, my fourth cousin, once removed. His B-25 “The Green Hornet” was the sixth aircraft launched from the USS Hornet, Doolittle Raid on Tokyo, 18 April 1942. He crashed landed his aircraft in the water close to China and was captured by Japanese soldiers. He was executed 15 Oct 1942, Shanghai, China. Capt. James William Goodwin, US Army Air Corps with William Powell as a common ancestor is my 9th cousin once removed. May their sacrifice never be forgotten.

President George Washinton, is my 8th cousin seven times removed (Confident). President Thomas Jefferson, is my 8th cousin five times removed.

Charles Robert Darwin, the originator of evolutionary biology, is my 8th cousin four times removed.

I recall listening to my elder family members discussing our family's relationship with, Vice President Calhoun, calculated to be my 11th cousin 7 times removed in wikitree, from what I heard my mother say it is likely closer, Vice Pres. John Caldwell Calhoun

My 13th cousin three times removed. John Charles Frémont, my hero who blazed the Oregon Trail and set in motion the separation of The Republic of California from Mexico, as directed by, President James Knox Polk.

My WWII Hero, President George Herbert Walker Bush, is my 9th cousin once removed.

Everyone should take advantage of using "Relationship finder" an innovation created by, Mr. Chris Whitten, originator of a wonderful, and constantly improving, site for genealogy. With, John Wright b. 12 Jul 1488, as a common ancestor, "Relationship finder" calculates Chris and I as 11th cousins once removed and co-incidentally my DNA matches the Wright Brothers of aviation fame, calculated as 18th cousins once removed, Wilbur Wright and Orville Wright

Thomas Dudley, b. 31 May 1688, England, is one of my maternal ancestors, his profile contains a useful note about the spelling of "clark" and clerk" causing the name "Clark" to be added erroniously to family records; another maternal ancestor is, Thomas Dudley b. 1465, England.

"Relationship finder" through my mother's ancestors calculates that WWII hero, awarded Medal of Honor and later movie actor, Major Audie Murphy, US Army , is my 10th cousin once removed and Lt. Col. William Dunlap Simpson, CSA, later Governor of South Carolina, is my third cousin, three times removed. Meriwether County, Georgia was named for, General David Meriwether, he is my 10th cousin seven times removed.

Marshall's DNA match with his father, Frank Pinckney Satterwhite- Family Tree DNA yDNA 67 markers; Haplogroup E1b1b1-M35.1 Family Tree DNA kit 326657, is proven by a match with a descendant of Frank's ancestor, David Satterwhite. This David Satterwhite's brother, James Satterwhite, has a living descendant, James Lee Satterwhite, who has a FTDNA match genetic distance of 5 with, Dudley Marshall Satterwhite, a descendant of Frank.

Marshall's DNA match with his mother, Carolina Elizabeth Glenn Satterwhite, is proven by cross-ref: Peter Jorgensen and Dudley Marshall Satterwhite, are first cousins twice removed; their DNA test markers show a match at first to second cousin level. They are grandchildren of, Lewis Glenn and Bettie Dudley, who are the parents of siblings, Thomas Asbury Glenn and Carolina Elizabeth Glenn Satterwhite

This is a link to the wikitree profile of my home county in Texas:

May of 2016: I found 6th cousin, James Howard “Jimmy” Dunn, Sr. b. 23 April 1937, GA; QB on the University of Florida football team 1956-58, after graduating he was assistant football coach University of Tennessee and The University of Florida. Also coached Arena Football League (1987-2008) Tampa Bay Storm.

August of 2019: I found fourth cousin once removed, Janice Huff, she is a third cousin of, Ken Stabler, the famous football quarterback of the Oakland Raiders.

Nov. 2019: I was messaged by, Michelle Enke, that message led me to find, calculated by wikitree relationship finder, Carroll Hall Shelby, Legendary car designer, developer of the Shelby Mustang, is my 13th cousin twice removed.

Dec. 2019: I discovered that, Hayden Fry, famous college football coach at Iowa, SMU and North Texas State, is my fourth cousin once removed the connection is through the Hallmarks. John Hayden Fry was a football quarterback at Baylor University, 1947-50. My thanks to, Matt Melcher, for creating Hayden's profile.

Jan. 2020: I discovered that, Laura Satterwhite Miller, my second cousin once removed had a daughter, my third cousin, Stage name, Joan Perry, who was a New York City model, singer, Hollywood actress. She married the founder of Columbia Pictures Inc., Harry Cohn.

August 2019 copied following Stafford family DNA study from: "DNA testing of the descendants of Thomas Stafford (b. 1605, England) of Rhode Island indicate the presence of a relatively rare haplogroup (a DNA strain) when taking into account his English origins. This particular DNA strain is known as E1b1b1a2.

Part of the "E" DNA grouping of humanity, this particular sub-strain is strongly associated with the Mediterranean area, with its peak concentration located in the Balkan region. While common in the Balkans, it is estimated that perhaps only 2 percent of the males in England possess this type of DNA. Taken with other evidence, the presence of this relatively rare DNA suggests a specific past migration event into Britain at about the time of the Roman invasion and occupation.

A number of Stafford researchers have speculated about a deep Roman origin for this Stafford DNA. Much of Britain was part of the Roman Empire from 43 AD up to the 400s and this became an opportunity for many from outside the Roman province of Britannia to settle there.

First, a little nomenclature.

This specific strain of DNA now under study in England is presently known as E1b1b1a2. Up until 2008, E1b1b1a2 was known as E3b1a2. That year the nomenclature was changed to improve the system of classification. Even though one may see both classification systems in use even today, it should be noted that E1b1b1a2 and E3b1a2 are simply different names for the same thing. Also, it should be noted that this strain is proved by the presence of a specific mutation known as V13 giving rise to a third way of identifying this DNA: E-V13. All are the same: E1b1b1a2=E3b1a2=E-V13.

So far, fourteen individuals that have participated in the Stafford y-DNA Project have been found to be part of Stafford Lineage 2 which is defined by the E1b1b1a2 haplogroup. Eight out of fourteen individuals in this lineage can trace their ancestry back to the immigrant Thomas Stafford (b. 1605 in England) who settled in Rhode Island. The remaining six are probably descended from this Thomas as well. We just don't know exactly how.

So how is it that an ancestor of Thomas Stafford could have been a Roman legionnaire?

In the Fall of 2007, an article appeared in the Journal of Genetic Genealogy entitled: Haplogroup E3b1a2 as a Possible Indicator of Settlement in Roman Britain by Soldiers of Balkan Origin. The author of the article, Steven C. Bird, makes the case that this particular DNA can be associated with the Roman 20th Legion, the so-called Legio XX Valeria Victrix that was filled with men from the area we now know as the Balkans. This legion had an almost continuous presence in Britain during the 350+ years of occupation. Soldiers from this legion would gain land and Roman citizenship once they were paroled from the service. Over the ensuing centuries, they culturally melded with the population but still retained their unique DNA to pass on from father to son.

I won't go into the specifics here as there is quite a bit to it. However, I would encourage anyone that has an interest in this to read the article thoroughly. Steve has done a very good job with it."

I found the above through a FTDNA match with a person I do not know, James Andrew Scheppard, whose earliest known ancestor is, Thomas Stafford b. 1605, In my FTDNA "ancient origin" profile a segment of my DNA traces back 3,800 BCE to the Yamnaya culture which originated near the present day city of Samara in Russia. Samara is located at the confluence of the Volga and Samara river. Other segments are from Scandinavia, Germany, England, Spain, France, etc., I am of 100% European descent.

Two fallen naval aviation friends that I will never forget: Don Allan Fowers and Peter John Ruggeri

I have a question for you. My family line goes back through Hannah Satterwhite Mitchell and her mother Sarah Blake. My 23andme dna verified what we'd been told forever, Native American in my mother's line that goes back through Hannah to Sarah Blake and I was given a timeline that points to Sarah Blake perhaps being the originator of that dna lineage which calls to question if she was actually an adopted child of immigrants and not born to them. Have you ever heard or run into anything regarding this? I am C-1358

from Dave's Bodine web site:

Husband: Burwell Eaves Born: abt 1798 in North Carolina Died: abt 1859 in San Augustine, San Augustine Co., TX Father: Bartlett Yancy Eaves (1756 - ) Mother: Charity Berryman Lewis (1759 - ) Notes Wife: Elizabeth ("Betsy") Bodine Married: Feb 28 1855 in San Augustine Co., TX Born: 1811 in Oglethorpe Co., GA Died: abt 1866 in San Augustine Co., TX Father: John Bodine (1785 - 1839) Mother: Nancy Ann Gunnels (1792 - 1863) Husband: Pinckney Lout, Sr. Born: abt 1808 in Warrick Co., IN Died: Nov 18 1837 in San Augustine Co., TX Father: John A. Lout Mother: Lovica Anderson Notes Wife: Elizabeth ("Betsy") Bodine Married: abt 1828 in San Augustine Co., TX Born: 1811 in Oglethorpe Co., GA Died: abt 1866 in San Augustine Co., TX Father: John Bodine (1785 - 1839) Mother: Nancy Ann Gunnels (1792 - 1863)

Notes for: Elizabeth ("Betsy") Bodine By tradition and censuses, Elizabeth was the oldest child of John Bodine and Nancy Gunnels. She and Pinckney Lout were already married and had three children prior to 1833. It appears that she had five children in her marriage to Pinckney Lout and three children by Burwell Eaves. At this time the best info indicates that she must have died in San Augustine County, Texas about 1866. The county tax record for 1866 was administered by someone other than herself. A large probate record exists in the San Augustine County records.

From: Lou Ann Sandel [l2sandel at] Sent: Thursday, April 10, 2003 Subject: ELIZABETH & BURWELL EAVES FAMILY







From Ronny Bodine:

On 27 Feb 1835, Pinckney Lout was given title to a land patent of 4428.40 acres in Jefferson District, Orange County, Texas (Patents vol. 22, no. 287). He served under Bailey Anderson at the Siege of Bexar and received an honorable discharge on 20 Feb 1836. On 22 Nov 1837, Colonel Jacob Snively wrote to Sam Houston that Pinckney Lout had been killed the Sunday before. (From the Houston Williams Papers - Texas State Archives.) As related by family members, Pinckney was shot to death by the wife of a shopkeeper in the village of San Augustine regarding the purchase of a pig. In 1850, Elizabeth Lout, giving her age as 32, was living near her mother in San Augustine County, with her 3 children. In 1860, Elizabeth Eaves, now reporting her age as 47, and widowed a second time after only four years of marriage, was living near her mother probably still on the Bodine property. Her large household included 3 children of her 2nd husband's previous marriage.

Children of Elizabeth Bodine and Pinckney Lout: Nancy (26 Jan 1829), Lovisa (1830), Julia Ann (1831), Pinckney (c1838).

Thank you for your lovely note cousin Marshall. I would love to know who you met from Stephens county and wonder if one of them was Doug Fambrough?? One of my grandmothers sisters was married to Earl Satterwhite and he was such a dear man. I loved Uncle Earl. I knew all the Satterwhites that lived close to my grandmother. I too wish that we could have had some reunions. I have dug into my memory bank and think I remember going to a Satterwhite reunion in Breckenridge years ago as a young person. I can see a room full of people but that’s all.

While I am here I want to congratulate you on your wonderful profile....good job. I love that you add to it from time to time. Cousin Lula

Hi Marshall,

If you haven't read the history of the Pickerings on my Tree go here: A summary, there are 2 Pickering lines. Both probably originated in York. One went to Salem, MA the other migrated to Buck Creek, PA. My line is from the Buck Creek line. Hope this helps, Hal

Hi Marshall,

My paternal grandmother is Ora Juanita Winfred Satterwhite. How are we related? My father was Bill Albert Williams, Juanita’s only surviving child. If I trace back Juanita’s paternal line, thanks to your hard work, gets me to an early Virginia colonist and possibly an FFV status as a member of the Jamestown Colony. You have cited members of our family as confederate soldiers (I have Federal officers on my mother’s side). We’re there any colonial fighters that you know of, or did the Quaker status preclude this?

Hi Marshall, You reference War of 1812 'Tories' for the British side. You might be interested in this work, showing that many British loyalists were quite different from what the word 'Tory' conveys (including of course a couple of my ancestors :) ).

Hi Marshall, I see you added some URLs to FamilySearch profiles on some of our relatives. For the ones I manage, those links were already there, further down the page under the source citations. The structure of the URL looks a bit different than what you see in your browser because they are the archival form of the link but they go to the same place. Example: vs. Just FYI!

Additionally, several are linked in the profile sidebar using this handy tool:

Thank you so much for all your advice and help today. As a rookie, I am certainly dumb but anxious to learn.

Thought about James T Dudley. I think it is James S. Dudley instead of T. I have a lot of census records with Martha Bond on it and tax records and a marriage to Martha Bond on a Georgia state site using the name James S. No idea yet what the S stands for. I will let you know more as I do more research.
