gil, we have corresponded in the past as my grandmother minnie belle alligood dykes was the dau of hardy francis, son of david, son of hillary,II, alligood by his 2nd wife matilda fry.
so this is also my alligood ancestry and i would also like to know and find it very interesting that this elias Le garde may have been our alligood ancestor.
there is a way for us to know and for us to have more accurate and definitive proof of this and that would be for one of you to have a dna test done.
the Ydna test has to be done by a male as Ydna is carried down from father to son in every subsequent generation.the Ydna would also tell us to which haplotype or haplogroup our alligood family does belong.
so i hope one of you might consider doing this and would be glad to hear from you.
