Hi Mark. I didn't quite understand the coding for Lydia (Collins) Newton that you just merged.

I added a note about the wording on her marker (which gives a clue to the age) and a link to Lydia's death record on Ancestry. Let me know if I messed your work ups

Hi, Mark. You and I map out as 5th cousins. Our most recent common ancestors are George Townsend and Polly Richmond. There's very little probability of a meaningful DNA match, but I'm curious anyway.

Have you uploaded your FamilyFinder DNA test data to If so, please post your Gedcom ID on your profile here. If not, please consider uploading your data and recording your ID here.

Hi, Mark.

Thank you for your note on my profile. I have uploaded my 23andMe data to FTDNA FamilyFinder, and I do not see you on my list of matches there, so I guess we do not have a good autosomal match.

I do, however, have a solid autosomal match at FTDNA to Jerome Townsend (Townsend-7938), but no genealogical paper trail. His paternal-line Townsend ancestry is a dead end for him. I think he could come from the Barnard, Vermont, Townsends, and I am curious to learn whether he is going to turn out to have a YDNA match with you. A while back he told me he had ordered a Y-111 match.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!

Your tag suggest that the Mayflower Project may fit your research focus. If not, use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find other possibilities. Review the project page to learn how to collaborate with the project members.
