b. 1817


[DNA Kit 97661 & 93260]


The only Johns in 1840 GA (where he said he was born, when he was age 23, and when he had 2 dtrs. & 1 son) were in Jones, Randolph and Oglethorpe Counties.  In Oglethorpe Co., 1840, was John W., age 20-29 & 30-39.  Also there on the same page were David, Nathan and Nathan, believed to have been from Bedford/Franklin Co., VA, and Elbert Co., GA.  There was a John age 80-89 in Coweta Co (on the border of AL), where my family tradition says our John was born.


Was John a descendant of Michael McKenzie Mattox of Anne Arundell Co., MD, and Tattnall Co., GA?  DNA test results should shed more light on our ancestry.
