We have more results with our DNA analysis. We have five people (Mangums and Mangrums) who match 25 for 25 markers, meaning the probably have a common ancestor less than 7 generations in the past. We call them the “Main Mangum Trunk” or MMT. We have two Manghams from Solomon Mangum/Mangham (NC & GA)who are related to the MMT with only one or two mismatches, but do not seem to be related to each other. These results seem to verify our theory that most of the Mangums, Mangrums & Manghams in the U.S. are really one and the same family. We also have two Mangums who match 25 for 25 with each other but are unrelated to the MMT. They descend from Jesse Mangum (c1800 NC) & James Mangum (c1801 Orange Co., NC), both whose origins are obscure. They are trying to put the pieces of that puzzle together and need more participants from these two ancestors. We do have two more Manghams from England who are in the process of being tested. Hopefully their results will shed some light on the origin of the U.S. Mangums and related surnames, and verify or disprove our present origin theories. There are two lineages that would greatly benefit from having one of their members tested. One is the lineage of Wiley P. Mangum & Mary McSwaim. Wiley P.’s origin is obscure with some theories placing him as a son of my Pleasant Mangum (1777 NC). The other is the lineage of Jacob Mangum. His origin is also obscure, but theories range from he being a descendent of James Mangum of the VA to NC migration (1748) to he being an immigrant from Ireland.

We would love to have you join us in this very important research project.
