I am Gary Dawkins in San Antonio, Texas, USA. The Ross Dawkins who answered your post is a relative of mine, since we have an exact match on the 37 marker Dawkins DNA project. We know that we have a common ancestor, and the likely hood of this is 95.73% in the last 7 generations. He has been in Austrailia for 5 generations. We are still working on finding that common ancestor in England. If you have any info on that, I would appreciate knowing it.
I have traced back my line in the US to Henry S. Dawkins Senior, born 1801 in Rockingham, North Carolina, USA.
