Hi Andrew,

I've never seen any data on Elizabeth (either what her maiden name was or her date of death) and would love to learn what you have. My data on Sallie is conflicting. Some say she was born in 1807, but others say that baptismal records say she was baptised in 1803. I'm not sure which is accurate. To my knowledge Sallie was not married before John (her common law husband). Her first child, my John Arney Jr., was the only one who took the Arney name. All the rest of their children took Sallie's Deckard name, but would carry the Arney DNA. And Sallie was buried in the Deckard cemetery in Monroe Co. Indiana where her father is buried. I don't know if John is there or where else he is buried.

YDNA is handed down from father to son to son to son. Your YDNA could only be used for your father in Cline testing and, unfortunately not for any Arney ancestry. If your mother has a brother or uncle who could test, they would be good samples for your Webb ancestry. Are you by chance related to James Webb? He wrote a great book on the Scots-Irish history called "Born Fighting". It is a must read for all people with Scot-Irish ancestry.

Best Regards,
