I think I posted this on another board. Needs to be posted again.
I participate in a Mitchell DNA project and connect to Joe of MS who is supposed to connect to Nimrod. We have another participant, Frank, also supposed to connect to Nimrod. The two do not connect, therefore one of them is not a Nimrod descendant. maybe neither from Nimrod Sr!
Having researched this line as thoroughly as I can, I'm prepared to state publicly that the lineage back from Nimrod Sr, is totally inaccurate and is easily disproved. In addition, we have a DNA participant who is a descendant of the Benjamin who is sited by Corrine as father of Nimrod.
We don't know who Nimrod's father was, and his descendants as posted in Boyce and Corrinne's books ( on file at DAR....) are questionable. Frank descends from William who m. Chloe Joe descends from Nimrod JR????? who m. Lucy Reeves.
My slant on this is that none of the descendants of NimrodSr are well documented. I also suspect that Joe's Nimrod is actually son of john & Dicey Mitchell, based on the fact that he bought the family land from the other legatees and lived alongside this family, plus the names he gives his children.
