Lord Family of Maryland & Georgia
Well I did some digging on the DNA web sites and according to DNA analysis the Lord family of Maryland - Georgia appear not to be connected to any of the New England Lords including Thomas Lord of Hartford Connecticut. This by comparing the DNA record of the Washington County, Georgia Lord's with the DNA of the New England Lords including one person who is an ancestor (she believes with some reason) of Thomas Lord of Connecticut. None of them match even close the Georgia Lords from Maryland. It looks like the trail goes to Andrew Lord of Maryland and starts to get cold after that.
