DNA test show that: I am 49.9 Irish, Scottish, and welsh the rest is made up of Spanish, Portuguese, Swiss, Ukrainian, Polish, Russian.
Researching the following lines: The Ward family line of John Ward and Isabella Weems from Jackson County, Georgia. The family of William Ward and George Wimms located in 1820 Jackson County, Georgia Census. Out of South Carolina.
The family of John Gilbert and Mourning Barksdale with ties to the Butler, Garrett, and Gilbert families of Hancock and surrounding counties in Georgia late 1700's early 1800. These families moved together into the Mississippi Territory in the very early 1800's. Later, some member of the Gilbert Family moved on westward.
The family of Leonhard Varnedeau/Varnado in Orangeburg County, South Carolina. These descendants moved from South Carolina to Georgia and later into the Mississippi Territory spreading south in Louisiana and westward later in the 1800's. Having been told that this family is French and having DNA with no French traceable leads me to believe that the original family migrated to the Iberian Peninsula and over the generation bred the French out. This also makes it possible that Leonard Vernadeau entered what is now the United States through the Mississippi Territory when held by Spain.
The Family of Miles Bullock/Bulloch in Washington Parish, Louisiana from Georgia. This family may have been located in the Mississippi Territory. I am searching for the exact origins of Miles and his family. I have located Bullock next to Varnado family members on Washington Parish, Louisiana census records.
The Seal Family of Washington Parish, Louisiana. This family is spread into surrounding parishes also in the early days of the Mississippi Territory.
The parents of Nancy Ward Thompson, widow of William Thompson who married Moses Varnado. Her daughter, Rebecca married my Grandfather, Samuel Hastings Varnado. This family was located in Washington/St Tammany, and Tangipahoa area of Louisiana. It is believed that Nancy Ward could possibly be of Native American extraction but my DNA shows no Native American blood.
The Tankersley Family from Georgia to Alabama and into Mississippi where the name changed to Tanksley in the mid-1800's. This family was located in the Winston/ Attala County areas of Mississippi in 1860. Also, in the coastal area of Mississippi then into Texas.
The family of John Fisher and their origin. John Fisher was married and his wife went blind. Later a neighbor sent his daughter, Theodosia Moore to keep house for his wife and care for his children. Once his wife died he married Theodosia and raised another family with her. I would like information on Theodosia's family lines.
The Ellington Family of Georgia, North Carolina, and Mississippi mostly in the areas of Leake, Winston, and Attala Counties in Mississippi.

What lessons of the vanity of all human greatness, namely: the power of wealth, the pride of family, the pleasures and gayety of life! All end at last in the grave — all alike blend in one common dust." from The History of Orangeburg, SC
