Hi Tracy:Funny you should ask that first question.I'm at a loss to know the name of Henry,Sr's father and siblings altho I'm pretty certain he had a brother Thomas.
I'm attempting to recruit a living male descendant (carrying the MATTOCKS surname) of the Crawford/Mercer County, PA MATTOCKS' to participate in a Family Tree DNA project.You have any suggestions as to male cousins that might wish to participate???
My understanding is that Jacob MATTOCKS (b. 11-28-1783) is the son of another Jacob (b. about 1755 in Virginia or New Jersey).This older Jacob is one of 4 sons of a Daniel MATTOCKS (b. about 1730 in New Jersey).The brothers of the older Jacob were:Richard, Peter & Joseph.
At the moment, I'm starting a Crawford/Mercer County MATTOCKS Family Tree Maker file.Any info you can provide will be greatly appreciated.I suggest you send it offline to me firstname.lastname@example.org
Hopefully, a DNA test would tell me where my Most Recent Common Ancestor is relative to the Crawford/Mercer County MATTOCKS. Gene
