I was hoping the DNA project could link the Offutts to the Moffat clan.I confess I know very little about how that works.I do have William Offutt b. 1674 Scotland, d. 1734 Maryland as the first Offutt in the colonies and would love to know if the “m” from William did replace the “m” in Moffat.I suppose that would make him illiterate… or perhaps he wished to change his name for other reasons. ???
I am an Offutt by marriage, but can confirm that you are my husband’s cousin.The common line goes back to Zachariah Offutt and Eleanor Beall.
1. David Quinton Offutt+ Julie Katharine Thurmond (me) 2. John Edwin Offutt + Judy Kimball Byrd 3. Edwin Cross Offutt + Anna Ruth Jones 4. William Amos Offutt + Annie Carter Cross 5. John Lycurgus Offutt + Adelaide Simmons Candler 6. John Offutt + Harriett Offutt* 7. Andrew Offutt + Elizabeth Warfield 8. Zachariah Offutt + Eleanor Beall 9. John Offutt + Esther Johnston (?) 10. William Offutt + Mary Brock 11. James Offutt
Any more info on the DNA link would be appreciated!
