Hey yall I'm a descendant of john austin born 1779 in white county tennesse said to be the son of nathaniel austin also they have descendants who have been traced back to them carrying the Y haplogroup e-m2 which is from africa. Nathaniel austin is said to of been the son of richard austin and a catawba women. Nathaniel austin appears to be the cousin of famous John austin in the 1755 saponi indian court testimony. My grandma always said we were blackfoot indian, which i thought was impossible because they are from the west, but i didnt realize the saponi was a name for blackfoot so maybe she was right all along. I got my info from http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-...rdja&id=I28314 and the austin family website.

Anyone else have any info on this?
