I myself am always looking for my own Meers line and will pay for a DNA test for anyone from my line!
Rev William Meers m. Frances Murphree. William born ca 1792, SC, died in Clarksville, Ark.Was a Baptist Minister
Jeremiah Fields Meers m. Catherine Susannah Willis. Jerry was b. 1826, GA, d. ca 1870 in Williamson Co, TX?
I have seen many descendants of the women of this line but need a male for the DNA testing!William had a number of sons besides my Jerry:
Moses b. 30 Apr 1816
Jackson Abt. 1817Davis b.
John b. 02 May 1824
Elisha (Judge) b. 26 Jan 1830
William b. 26 Apr 183217 May 1842
Jefferson b. 04 Feb 1835
Andrew (Jack) b. 17 May 1842
I'd love to hear anything about any of these guys--but I'd REALLY like to find a male descendant to test!
Jerry's sons mostly "daughtered out" so there is no one to test in those lines.I'd still like to hear about them!And at least 2 sons may have HAD sons:
Jackson b. 10 Jul 1862
William T b. 06 Aug 1850
Also, if there is a straight maternal line descendant of Frances Murphree or Catherine Susannah Willis (or their mothers, grandmothers, etc) on this list, I would like to hear from you!And would happily send you a mtDNA test kit!!!
