My family name descends from a James Marshall who in 1754, when being granted land in Kershaw Dist. SC, stated that he had come lately from Penn.Over the past 5 years with the help of lots of folks, I have collected data on some 750 families that descend from this James.But I cannot get past James, who was a Capt in the Rev. War.
I now believe to get past this James brick wall new technology is required. And it appears the new technology just might be DNA testing.Many of you have the same type of brick wall.Or there may be someone with the Marshall surname you have always wondered with about kinship.
I would like to start a Marshall Surname DNA Project.If your surname is Marshall or something very similar, and would consider participating in the project please contract me at my e-mail address listed below.
To learn more about the tests please go to www.familytreedna.com.If five other Marshall's are willing to get this thing started, I believe a group rate of $99 each is available.This is for the 12 marker test.
