I am looking for a connection in Caswell county to my JONES line from Bedford & Franklin counties in Virginia.

I have had a 67 marker DNA test done and have full and partial matches with several other male line JONES researchers. Two of these have Caswell county connections and I'm trying to see if I can somehow connect my JONES line to someone who has a JONES line in that NC county.

I am descended from David JONES, b ca 1770, m Patsey NORTH in Bedford co. VA 1794, through their son Abraham N. JONES b ca 1800 in Bedford Co.

I am not sure whether David or his family migrated up into Virginia from NC or whether it was a relative that made the move from Virginia to NC.

I see that there were 8 to 10 JONES households in the US federal census in the years 1790 through 1810, including a David in 1790.

Other JONES heads of households: Benjamin Jones;Clayton Jones;Drury Jones;Goodrich Jones;James Jones;John Jones;Richard Jones;Stephen Jones;Thomas Jones;William Jones;etc.

One of the researchers whose DNA results were a relatively close match to mine has traced his JONES line back to a William JONES, b 1735, Stratfordshire England. This line is connected to Caswell county Jones families.

Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
