Has a direct male Magness descendant of Abner Magness (died Habersham Co., GA) done a Y-DNA test?
How about a direct male Magness descendant of Fielding Magness (died in Ohio) done a Y-DNA test?
My brother did a Y-DNA test for the George Magness (died 1881 Lumpkin Co., GA) line. His test was made at Family Tree DNA.
DNA tests help clear up genealogical lines that may have taken an erroneous turn.For a Magness line a minimum of 25 markers is needed to tell anything.37 markers is better.
