356, ALKIRE, William b c1724 178, ALKIRE, John b 1750 VA; [RevWar]; d 1828 Weston, Lewis Co, VA; m bef 1770 89, ALKIRE, Christina “Tenie”, “Tina” b 15 Jul 1786 Harrison Co, VA; d 5 Apr 1874 Weston, Lewis Co, WV
I have recently taken the new Family Finder DNA test, which would match me with a cousin from any of my ancestors. The FF test has provided 89 matches so far, and working with them has resulted in 9 new confirmed cousins (from 3rd to 10th), with DNA that passes through 23 of my surnames, but not including ALKIRE.
If anyone who descends from one of the above persons took the Family Finder DNA test, you would probably match with me, and we would both then be able to confirm our ancestry (through matching DNA) from ourselves back to the ancestor we have in common.
In addition, I would be very interested if anyone has Y-DNA or mtDNA tested for this family.
I hope to hear from some interested cousins,
