    Have I missed something here? Has someone from your line already had their DNA tested? If so who was it and what is their kit number?

    What do you mean the results are close to zero?

    I meant that my understanding of DNA results is close to zero.

    Bee,

    Do you or your relatives, recognize or know the location of a “Peters Creek” or “Bull Mountain” in the Patrick/Henry Counties area?

    I know they are in Patrick county, but I don’t know exactly where they are located? Bull Mountain, I think is part of a forest or I remember a forest lookout made of wood back in the 40’s that was on Bulls mountain in Patrick. Sorry, Vic

    Bee,

    This thread discusses two different types of DNA tests or I don’t understand them which could very be the case. The Daniel discussions of kit numbers are the male-only tests that look at unbroken lines of males to determine where they came from and who they are related to. There is a female-only test that is called the mtDNA test that looks at unbroken female lines. Males can take the mtDNA test too and determine where their female line came from, but this mtDNA reading is not passed on to their children. The third type of test, that which gives you a percentage estimate of NA is the autosomal test. It is not as well thought of, although it is one that the medical field is looking at to give people medications especially designed for them and also used by the police to ID the race of criminals that the are hunting for. If you have a broken line like I do, the latter is your only choice that I know of to get at the NA. I did this one, as well as the mtDNA. The former registered NA; the latter did not. The results of the former are verified by what I thought from genealogy.

    Caveat: the male/female tests only tell you information about direct ancestors, so my great-niece, that is, my sister’s daughter’s daughter, would have the same mtDNA results as me even though her father was African American.

    Yea the doctor gave Mom a drug that really messed her up she spent a few days in the hospital he knows better now since he realizes she is 3/8 NA. She has more of a taylor made program now. Thing is he knew she was mixed when he prescribed the drug he just did not realize how much NA she really is live and learn.

    Hey Bill,

    Yes, I recognize both. My Collins line lived on Peters Creek in both Patrick Co, VA and Stokes Co. NC. Probably many others did, too, but that’s one I remember for certain at the moment.

    My Dad grew up right near Bull Mountain. Had family in Vesta, etc.

    I have a map of Patrick County (from 1976) that locates mills, old school houses, streams, etc.

    Why?

    Techteach, thanks.

    At some point, DNA testing might be cool. Could get to be quite expensive to test all the curiousities, though. I have an Unknown gr-grandpa, so DNA would likely be the only way to ever trace that line. I think from what I’ve read, that would require an awkward conversation with a male relative. ;~)

    Yes, Bee, you will, if you wish to test the male line. I asked my cousin’s father and then paid for it. I have been in contact with someone who has cousins from a straight female line. I might have to get back in touch with him and see if he is willing to ask them for a test. It all becomes interesting. I found an Irish project online with lots of surnames that are not part of my family (at least, not directly) but are buried in the same old cemetery as my ancestors who have the same DNA type as my cousin’s father. And I bought a book on DNA in the United Kingdom that discusses ancestry of different types of DNA. Kind of interesting. Ths story in the family is that this line brings in the NA. I do believe this, except it is not the male line. The DNA test proved that.

    (This is the first I’ve ever heard of specific drugs being dangerous for American Indians. Can anyone elaborate on this, either here, in a private message or elsewhere? ~ Thank you.)

    I don’t know a lot about this but I’ll share want I can. Mom was given Ambien CE I believe it is called. It is a sleeping pill. There have been many reports out of North Carolina about natives having an adverse reaction to this drug. Sleepwalking and hallicinating are some of the reports. Mom was sleepwalking and fell down and broke her arm. Now I don’t know if other races have had adverse actions with this drug but I would not doubt it. I do know Natives especially in North Carolina have had many adverse reactions. My second cousin also had an adverse reaction to it as did one of my more distant cousins. One could say it’s something in our genetic make up but to many other natives who are not blood related are having reactions too. My advise would be to treat this drug like it has the plague. Also I now firmly believe that a doctor needs to know the racial make up of their patients. Each race does have its own genetic pattern (at least that is what I was taught).

    Hello,

    I dont know about this drug but the doctors almost killed my dad the first time he was given kemo…. he lived two more years thankefully but the later doses had to be given very slowly and at 1/4 the normal level.

    All this is a serious problem for us.

    For me i was given anestesia to have my wisdom teeth pulled. It was a long time ago when they used more and stronger amounts. It took 10 hours for me to come back and was very sick for a very long time. They told me that i almost didnt make it. I seldom use AMA style medical treatments now.

    Any other Daniel descendants around here? Just refreshing the thread. Cousin Crazyhorse seems to have disappeared, though. :~(

    I don’t descend from Daniel but my Turners marry into the Daniel line in Northampton/Halifax Co’s NC. In fact, on one of the death certs filed in Halifax Co for a direct descendant of this union listed her race as Native American. This is a first “legal” document we have found that shows NA for the Portuguese Settlement.
