UNIQUE FAMILY...WE MAY NOT BE US!
Posted by: Shelley Hallman (ID *****5243) Date: July 26, 2012 at 00:00:38

Ydna results come back with "J" halogroup.
My brother had the 37 marker y dna test, results came back. We seem to be Unique! Apparently less than 6% of people are "J"s. There are no other Moores in the study so far have this. And especially none in PA. where we believed our linage was firmly entrenched in Chester County. Does anyone else have a J grouping? Does anyone have a clue about any associated families of the Moores who may have a J grouping ? Any Families who may have been in same locations at the same time? or ever?
Our furthest known ancestor is John Moore, said to have been born in 1796 in Sudsbury Pennsylvania. No records of parentage, birth, baptism etc. We have marriage record of John to Susanna Lowery in Jan 1827 in Muskingum Co, Ohio. All 7 of their children were born in Muskingum Co, Ohio from 1828 to 184? Lived in Falls, Ohio in 1850 per census. I know that his children moved quite a bit after they were grown and lived in Indiania and Missouri as well as Ohio. Some later descendants also moved to the West Coast. (CA, OR, WA)
We have info on descendants it's the ancestors who are doing a marvelous job of eluding us, (to the point of confusing us about our name!)
A John Moore took up land in Muskingum CO, Ohio in early 1800s per Ohio Military records. (as did William and Joseph) if we could determine when the Moore we know is ours left PA. and who else left at the same time we could perhaps make some progress. So if anyone was a clue regarding this family (Or a J halogroup) please contact me?
