|Bio and Links|
Retired, living in my wife's hometown of Palmer, Alaska . Thanks to Ancestry.com, Family research has become my new job. Primary lines of inquiry are Family of John Cox & Mary Leah Jobe of Sullivan Co., TN., Family of Francis Marion Hatfield and Mary Jane "Polly" Harter of Putnam Co, Ohio. Also William Pettyjohn (DE, VA, PA, IL, WA), Thomas Franklin Hole (Eng, Canada, Iowa), Walter Hogg(VA,IA), Richard Acuff (VA,MO,TN), Jeremiah Moore(KY,IA,OR), Hezekiah Mathis/Mathews (KY, IN, MO. Unfortunately I have hit walls on most of these lines in the mid 1700s. In the summer of 2010 we traveled 9000 miles in 11 weeks in an RV to search in NE, KS, MO, AR, TN, KY, & IA. It was everything I had hoped for. If anyone is thinking of such a trip I encourage you to go for it. We repeated this trip in 2015 going 10,000 in 92 days, again we found everything we were looking for and took my Wife's Miller line from 1805 all the way back to 1700 immigrants from Ireland. We plan to go out again in 2016.|

|Rod Hatfield||Hatfield KY family|
Dave I am trying to find family links to the Francis Marion Hatfield from Ohio you mentioned.
|Joe Gibbens||Re: Margret Switcher Ringo Miller|
You and your wife are welcome. Thank you for letting me know. I still appreciate hearing about people using my memorials.
Have a great week.
|Neal Amick||RE: Emanuel Bennett|
Emanuel Bennettís gravestone is shared with his grandson, Arthur Bary. Sarah Catherine Bennett, Emanuelís daughter, married John William Bary. Arthur was the youngest of 10 children, dying August 10, 1920, at the age of three years. Emanuel Bennett was my great-great grandfather. He was a printer and operated the old manual hand press of the Great Bend Tribune before gas engines ran the printing press.

My research tree is from pauper to king and in between plus I have several DNA trees. I am not sure in we are Finnish the DNA came up Scandinavian but did not specify which.
DNA Haplogroup I1-M253 (Y-DNA) (Scandinavian) David, Elias, and William S. Cox brothers, sons of John Cox and Rebecca Dunn-Cox, are in Haplogroup I1. Results were gathered through individual DNA testing done through each of the brothersí descendants. Haplogroup I1 (formerly I1a) is the most common I subclade. It is found mostly in Scandinavia and Northern Germany, where it can represent over 35% of the population. Associated with the Norse ethnicity, it is found in all places invaded by the ancient Germanic tribes and the Vikings. 1 is estimated to be 4000 to 5000 years old (the now outdated "15,000 -20,000 years ago in Iberia" information was wrong), and confirmed by the single nucleotide polymorphism, SNP, known as M253. While many I1 members trace their ancestry to Scandinavia, others find their roots in the British Isles, Germany, Central Europe, Iberia, Russia and beyond.

Also my direct line!
George Wynn Cox son of David Cox and Mary Polly McGee married Mary Reader Fruit. George Wynn Cox and Mary Reader Fruit's daughter Martha Matilda Cox married Emmanuel Bennett. George and Mary had another daughter named Elizabeth Jane Cox who married David Bennett, Emmanuel's brother.
The DNA testing on the Cox line proved they were of Scandinavian descent which surprised me as I always assumed they were English. Mary Reader Fruit's ancestry is unknown on the Fruit side, it is speculated that the Fruit line where French Huguenots who migrated to Scotland then later to the Americas. The Fruit line traces back further to the Pugh line who were of the Quaker faith from Wales. Also many myths surrounding both the Fruit and Pugh line.
Do you have an account with ancestry.com?

LOL that is my direct line! I have the burial information her in Find a Grave. David Cox married Mary Polly McGee on 7 Feb 1809. Mary Polly McGee is the daughter of John McGee and Elizabeth Cox (also related to this cox line.) After David's death Mary Polly married James Nelsen on 5 Sept 1844.
David Cox and Mary Polly McGee are not only husband and wife but also related through the Cox side as second cousins.
David Cox is the son of John Cox and Rebecca Dunn. John Cox is the son of William Cox and Jean. William Cox is the son of Allen Cox (b.1704)
Mary Polly McGee is the daughter of John McGee and Elizabeth Cox. Elizabeth Cox is the daughter of Allen Cox (b.1730)and Mary Polly Hilliard. Allen Cox is the son of Allen Cox (b. 1704)
David Cox and his wife Mary McGee are second cousins as they share the same Great-grandfather Allen Cox born circa 1704.
John McGee (Mary Polly' father) was the son of Robert & Jane McGee. Robert McGee is known as one of the five McGee brothers from Ireland. He came from Ireland with his four brothers John, William,David and James. The brother's parents are unknown. There is much information on this McGee line but also many Myths. I will be glad to answer any information you have on this line as I have much and have researched this line for many years now.

|TCB||David Cox and DNA|
Y DNA Haplogroup I1 (Scandinavian) David, Elias, and William S. Cox brothers, sons of John Cox and Rebecca Dunn-Cox, are in Haplogroup I1. Results were gathered through individual DNA testing done through each of the brothersí descendants. Haplogroup I1 (formerly I1a) is the most common I subclade. It is found mostly in Scandinavia and Northern Germany, where it can represent over 35% of the population. Associated with the Norse ethnicity, it is found in all places invaded by the ancient Germanic tribes and the Vikings.
Also, David Cox, Ancestry.com DNA results shows a shared ethnicity of 96% with three DNA testers so far which will stay unnamed for confidentiality. All through the David Cox line, shared ancestors Dunn/Cox. It was David Coxís DNA that the other DNA tests were compared to for the Haplogroup match to determine siblings as it has always been known that David Cox was a son of John and Rebecca. It was David Cox who moved to Wayne County Kentucky with Rebecca Cox (his widowed mother) before his marriage there on 7 February 1809 to Mary 'Polly' McGee and is listed as Cocks in 1809 Wayne Tax without property, with 2 horses next to Rebecca Cocks. (Davidís mother)

|TCB||RE: John Cox Rebecca Dunn David Cox|
Yes on both.
The Y-DNA results are from Family Tree DNA - Cox DNA Study proving the male line.
DNA testing was also done through ancestry for the female line which brought up several relation matches with the male testers from the Y-DNA study who also took DNA test on ancestry for comparison.
