My husband recently did y-DNA testing at FTDNA and matches a TEW. By name, he descends from Samuel King (1757-1807) of Jones Co., NC. However, biologically, he does not match the primary ancestor suspect, VA/NC immigrant Michael King, or any of the King's in that surname project. In fact, even at the minimal 12 marker level, he only matches a few men. Most closely, he matches two men with the surnames TEW and BASS. The Tew male says he descends from Daniel Tew (1782) of NC. I have tried to e-mail this descendant, but he doesn't respond, so I'm somewhat on my own trying to figure this out. The BASS descendant doesn't know even who his father is, so he's at a loss to help much either.
My hunch is that Samuel King came to Jones Co. from Sampson and that he may relate to Charles King, but I'm not certain. Regardless, given the DNA results, biologically, my husband is not a King, but more likely a Tew and there was a non-paternal event of some kind along the way, possibly from the time in Sampson Co.
If anybody has information, suggestions, anything that can help us work this out, I would be most grateful. Thanks!
