    SORRY, I AM NOT YET USED TO COMING HERE REGULARLY. I DID THE K5 TEST. ITS RESULTS MATCHES MY RESULTS BASED ON GENEALOGY.

    I STILL CANNOT BREAK THROUGH MY NANCY AGNES MCLANE LINE (MY BLACKFOOT), ALTHOUGH I KNOW THAT A MCLEAN SETTLED IN THE AREA HER FAMILY WAS IN IN IOWA. ALSO, HER FAMILY LIVED NEAR A LANE IN PA. I WAS TOLD THAT MY NA ANCESTORS WERE SHAWNEE BY THE GRANDDAUGHTER OF THE UNCLE OF MY GREAT GREAT GRANDMOTHER. NANCY IVED NEAR LANE FAMILIES IN PA, AND I KNOW THAT THIS IS A SHAWNEE SURNAME.

    Since I am now able to access this forum now (I forgot my password :)), and Marc helped me, I thought I would share another DNA test I took. It is from Geneplaza and is supposed to be based on North American Native American DNA. It matches what I think I am based on genealogy. It shows me as 5% NA.

    Jim,

    If I lower Gedmatch numbers, you match my mother on Chromosome 15. However, I don’t know of Jeffries in Mom’s line.

    My patriot ancestor that got me into the Daughters of the American Revolution is part of my mixed line. My cousin and I believe he was mixed. His grandchildren married into the family of my “Blackfoot” who was known to have said she never crossed the threshold of a white man.

    One of my Facebook friends is the trip organizer for Re-Member, an outreach to Pine Ridge where we volunteer . I get updates through her. I will post them here when they are enlightening.

    Was it your Drybread relatives who just had a spit-in, so to speak, for DNA in Canada?

    Interesting. I looked at his Facebook page. It turns out that I know him.

    I have not been able to make it work. Mac thing? I click on the “Connect,” and it goes nowhere.

    What is working is the like button on thread topics and blog entries, and like/share buttons on the homepage and Eastern Blackfoot page. These show how many people have liked a given page.

    The Facebook Connect button actual logs you into the forum with your Facebook account. So you can use your Facebook login instead of registering a new one for SaponiTown. I can work on it if people think it’s worth it.

    I tried it a second time but this time I clicked on the “f”, not the work “connect.” Now, I cannot get into the forum at all through Chrome. It directly takes me to Facebook or tries. Most times it goes to an error message “Too many redirects.” Probably my problem is that this forum is not connected to the email address that my Facebook account is connected to. I got in here just now by using Firefox, and the link from the email connected to this forum.

    Thanks for the links! Very useful to me. My Green family were in Berkeley County, WV.

    I read that the my 3rd great grandfather’s first wife’s family were Quakers teaching Cornplanters children. His second wife was my Blackfoot ancestor.

    Same with my family. Both my maternal grandparents wind back to the Swearingen line, while my great-great grandparents on my grandfather’s line were first cousins. And then, I got excited with a Deuel match to my mother, as I pursue Mayflower Society membership; that is the Mayflower line. Her Ancestry tree went back to a Deuel, but then as I checked further on her tree for her, she has a Deuel married to a Potter also, so I cannot say that the match is Deuel-only.(She was interested in the Native stories in the family, since her daughter was adopting 2 Lakota children. I suspect a mixture in the Deuel line, as well as Potter.)

    Everybody married neighbors and moved together, so intermarriage continued. In fact, I am of the opinion that if your children are dating someone who is a neighbor, best you check the genealogy. It turns out, I figured out 2 years ago that I was dating my 3rd cousin in high school, but no one knew it at the time :).

    Sorry, I have not been here lately. The end of the semester and our FL vacation, and then the beginning of the new semester caught up with me. I am embarrassed and will be back again daily.

    Mom (Vera Carpenter) has lines that are rumored to be Native coming out of PA and MD/WV. The surnames are: Mount, Sinkey, Ralston, Huston, McLane in PA. McLane is my Blackfoot ancestor. In MD/WV, Mom has Green, Butt (connected to Shawnee). The Potters also allegedly come from near Baltimore and connects with a Davis line from Queenstown. This line is supposed to be mixed; a friend of mine from OH says that you always know a Potter by their dark skin and hair as my gggrandmother, Mary Lovina Potter, had (She did, though, have a half-uncle who seems to have no hint of NA ancestry.). I also believe that Mom has NA coming from NY in the Deuel line who came from Iroquois areas.

    However, Mom also has lines from VA that have no rumors of NA. They were wealthy, slave-owning people who were prone to lying about royal English and Scottish ancestry, although if you believe the little green leaves on Ancestry (and most have proven true for me when I double-check.), these family lines eventually connect to G. Washington and T. Jefferson. Mom and I are also definitely descended from a Huguenot who was from MD and is the ancestor of such people as Barak Obama, Warren Buffet, Robert Duval, and Dick Cheney. Some of the DNA with folks here on this forum might be matching these lines. Surnames here: Wright, Gordon, Walker, Schollars, Talbot, Chiles, Morton. The lines converge in northern KY and eventually western KY.

    My Blackfoot ancestor here has always been outside the areas described by most people here, i.e. VA, although I do not know where Nancy Agnes McLane’s people came from originally. While she is a dead end, she was from Beaver County, PA.
