Sha, I would like to know more about the Maxwells and Carson families. Recent DNA studies show avery "close relationship" between:
1.Henry Maxwell m Agnes Carson (d/o Walter Carson) 2.Nathanial Maxwell m. Esther Carson (d/o Patrick Carson) ** 97% chance of common ancestor in 300 yrs, and 99% in 400 years
3.Jesse Maxwell b ca 1775 wife UNK, son William Jesse Maxwell (of Tenn) m Elizabeth Carson (d/o Lindsey Carson of Iredell, N.C.) ** 75% chance of common ancestor [with Henry and Nathanial] in 300 years and 90% chance in 400 years......
Are Walter Carson, Patrick Carson and Linsey Carson related in any close way that would allow them to intermarry so closely with the Maxwell clan?
These new genetic genealogical tests show a new relationship that may allow us to link Maxwell families by finding a backdoor link thru the Carson family.
Please let me know if there is any new information.
