I came to the conclusion that Samuel Flake matched my mtDNA (U5b2). I traced this eway and that, after I saw the rare HVR1+HVR2 match at SMGF, and then followed family trees back from the west coast to Mary Walker, and then back to Elizabeth Warren (born 1644 in Virginia). Her only sister was Alice Warren, who married Matthias Marriott. One of their daughters was Margaret Marriott, mother of Samuel Flake.
I am up against the proverbial brick wall in trying to find out about my earliest known female ancestor, whose first name was Charity (last name unknown). Her mtDNA would have been the same as Samuel Flake's; at least the HVR1+HVR2 part. She was supposedly born in Anson County, andmarried there in 1777 to Jacob Falconberry (various spellings of that surname).
Could anyone tell me if Samuel Flake had a sister or female relative there in the Anson County area, who could have been Charity's mother? I sure would appreciate any insight or information regarding this. My goal is to link my known family tree with the Warren tree.
