All you Kilgore descendants. I'm trying to find recruits for the Kilgore DNA project. A core group of Kilgores spent at least the last 10 yrs seperating fact from fiction in the legend(s) of the 5 Kilgore brothers who migrated from Ireland c1765 to Granville (later Orange,Caswell,Persons) Co, NC . Hitting the proverbial brick wall in available paper trails, about 2 yrs ago they started a Kilgore DNA project where they were able to find several DNA matches to help in their endeavors. A larger DNA data base is needed to proceed further. I'm hoping to recruit (1) any direct male-male-male descendants of early (pre 1800) Kilgores to take paternal YDNA tests. Early names are Wm, Robt, Thos, George, John & Peter.
