Oh, that's awesome he's ordered the DNA test! Can't wait to see the results! Yes, you can certainly move the results to any project you want, including more than one. FTDNA will connect matches from any project, that's one of the benefits of having a large database.
Checked out your page and wow, you have a ton of great info on there. When I began working on the Waggoners, I thought it would be easy, that there couldn't be that many of them. Boy, was that wrong! There are many clans of them all over MD, PA & VA, with apparently no direct connection. In a way, I have come up with our presumed immigrant ancestor by process of elimination. Plus, the oral history that our Waggoner ancestor was a Hessian, whispered to several of us descendants as if something of which to be ashamed. I haven't locked it down with 100% certainty, but I'm fairly certain that our Waggoner line does indeed descend from a Hessian - Johann Christoph Waggoner, a chaplain in the Ansbach-Bayreuth Regiment. He was captured at Yorktown, marched first to Winchester, VA then to the Hessian Barracks in Frederick, MD. He was a POW until the summer of 1783. The POW's there were held loosely, in fact, encouraged to go out into the community and find day jobs. Christoph (Christopher) preached at least one sermon in the Evangelical Lutheran Church there in Frederick, but I can find no other record of him there. It's a long story how he ends up going to Nova Scotia for a few years only to return to Allegany Co., MD, thus the initial known contact with the Elbin family. (There may have been a prior connection from the time in Frederick...John Elbin resided in Loudon Co., VA at one point as he was selling his land there...can't remember what it was off the top of my head...I can find it.)
I've been told by most Elbins that the family was of Germanic heritage. Many ships sailed from northern Germany (although it wasn't called Germany at the time, but was separted principalities) to England first, then on to the US. For what it's worth, I found a town named Elbing in Germany and wondered if that was a point of origin? Don't know.
I'm still trying to determine with more certainty that my Mary was an Elbin. The only other likely option is her being a Chaney. I'm still inclined to believe Elbin.
