We have our first 12 marker DNA match and it is from kits from John D. SANDIFER Dob c1783 SC and Francis D. SANDIFER. Dob 1824.
Francis D. SANDIFER was the brother of Gregory Jones SANDIFER and Joshua SANDIFER. They came from Virginia across the wilderness trail through Tennessee and Kentucky to Greenville, Illinois to Golden City, MO. Then to Girard, Kansas and then returned to Greenville, IL.
John D. SANDIFER d1850 Copiah Co., Miss.
I think there is a strong liklihood that the Edgefield Co., SC SANDIFERs are related and DNA testing can help point the finger better in that direction. I would LOVE to find a descendant of William Nightingale SANDIFER b c1760 SC to test to compare to these two lines!! Please feel free to contact me for more information.
