I am looking for verification of the ancestry of George Washington Farris born Feb 25 1862 (1861 according to death certificate)in Gainsville, Cooke Co., TX. His Father was James Farris born about 1834 in Cole Co., MO. and married to Margaret J. Hale who later (after James' death in the Civil War in 1863) married his cousin Silas Farris. The father of James is supposedly John Farris born about 1808 in KY married to Minerva Morrow. After dna testing, I was sorted into the R1b haplogroup, which throws me up against a potential dead-end. Apparently those of haplogroup I1b lay claim to Ian Esom through letters, notes and supposed personal recollections engraved on leather and histories written in a fimily bible which later perished in a fire, but nothing more substantial or scientific. I would appreciate any information as to validity of a proper Farris ancestry.
