I'm trying to figure out the connections among the Castle, Self and Daniel families.All were in Lancaster county PA at one time or another.The Jeremia & Basil Daniel clan were in the Pendleton district of SC before heading west and one branch apparently south to GA and AL.
What got me following this string is that someone posted the theory that one or more of the Daniel family were or had married Cherokee.And then I ran across Jacob Castle sr & jr who are said to have married Shawnee and Cherokee.And then I saw some marriages among the Self, Daniel, and Castle families.And I see the recurrence of the otherwise rare name "Basil Daniel" (Bazell, Barswell...) in both the Self and Castle families, and the name Arminta/Araminta/Aramitta.
Has anyone participated in the DNA testing projects for any of these families?They can do direct maternal line tests using mitochondrial DNA, or direct paternal line tests on part of the Y chromosome.I know that there are projects/sites for Cherokee, and for Daniel and Castle families:
and there are most likely a bunch of others, but I have to wonder whether any of them have done any cross-comparisons.

I believe that Baswell/Bazel Daniel's brother William Daniel (1780 NC) married Sarah Self (1780).
