Florence's daughter Kathy WATSON* has
had her DNA analyzed and this has produced some apparent cousins, or people
will have a common ancestor with Kathy. Some on
her father's side, which we can identify, and hopefully some are on her
mother's side. The difficulty here is that we do not have any surnames to
start with or compare to. By using DNA results combined with genealogy
hopefully we can find some common ancestors and work our way back down the
tree to possible parents.
Below are some of the people who have been
identified as 'cousins' through DNA;
Patricia has been
identied as a 3rd cousin in AncestryDNA therefore her gg grandparents could be the
common ancestor. We have also identied the connection is on her maternal
side. Patricia's mother was
Jessie Laverne MacINTOSH (1908-2004), Jessie's ancestors
originated in the Isle of Lewis, Scotland and emigrated to Canada circa
1850. They settled in Huron Twp. Bruce Co, Ontario, Canada. (We suspect
Florence was born in Bruce County.)
If we look at Jessie's Pedigree
Chart we find these great grandfathers,
; Angus GILLIES;
John & Isabella MacLEOD
& Angus & Catherine
one of their grandchildren should be either mother or father to Florence.
Christine has been identified as a possible 3rd cousin on AncestryDNA.
Tracing Christine's grandmother, Ida
McFARLANE (1906-????) we find her acestors originated on the Isle of
Lewis, Scotland, emigrated to Huron Twp, Bruce Co, Ontario. A look at
Chart shows ancestral surnames in Lewis as MacFARLANE; MacIVER;
MacLEOD & Angus & Catherine GRAHAM
Partricia and Christine apparently have a common ancestors in the Angus &
Family. This helps me since the more common ancestors I can identify the
closer I come to Florence's common ancestors and then start the climb back
down thr tree to look for her parents.
Amanda on MyHeritage and Ancestry and
her father on GEDmatch are identied as possible 4th cousins. Amanda's
grandmother on her father's side was Margaret Jane MATHESON
(1900-1969). Her ancestors also emigrated from the Isle of Lewis to Huron
Twp, Bruce Co, Ontario. Margaret Jane's Pedigree
Chart shows these ancestral families; MATHESON; MORRISON &
Murdoch & Mary MacLEOD.
Donald on Ancestry DNA is shown as a 4th - 6th cousin, his grandfather
Dan McLENNAN (1882-1961) was born in Huron Twp, Bruce Co,
Ontario and his parents emigrated from the Isle of Lewis in Scotland. Dan's Pedigree
Chart shows the following surnames in Lewis; McLENNAN;
Murdoch & Mary MacLEOD
Amanda and Donald have common ancestors in the Murdoch & Mary MacLEOD
Family. Another possible common ancestor for Florence.
Dixie has been identified as a possible 2-4th cousin at MyHeritage DNA.
Tracing Dixie's maternal ancestors through her mother, Wanda Hope
SMITH (1916-2004) we find her acestors originated on the Isle of
Lewis, Scotland, emigrated to Huron Twp, Bruce Co, Ontario and then
relocated to Oregon, USA. A look at Wanda's Pedigree
Chart shows ancestral surnames in Lewis as SMITH;
I have created these Journals in an attempt to identify all those
grandchildren and narrow down my search. Likely subjects, both male or
female, would have been born born approx 18 - 30 years before Florence's
birth in 1915, say 1885 to 1897. Also not likely married before 1915.
Please note, this is a work in progress and not all the
connetions have been proven. I am open to any and all, questions, comments
and corrections, Case.
