I am trying to locate living descendants of William Marriott, Charles Marriott, and Mathias Marriott, Surry County VA pre-1700.
Our DNA study currently has a descendant of Charles participating. They are a DNA match to our separate line which was in Old Rappahannock County VA by 1650. My ancestor and maybe William appear in that County between 1650-1653. It may be possible to use these two separate lines to provide DNA validation for an earlier ancestor.
I would like to locate additional project participants in order to:
1] Validate the Virginia family tree. A DNA match by two separate lines with a common ancestor will validate the family tree back to that ancestor.
2] Build up our DNA library. We will need it to bridge the gaps in the paper trail and match lost lines.
Please contact me if you are interested in this project. I would also enjoy talking to anyone knowledgeable in regard to these three men.
And of course, any other Marriott project is welcome!
