So I got my ancestry dna results back with some expected and a couple unexpected finds. Expected results was I matched my first cousin as first cousin Deborah Kinney and I matched Jeanne in TN who we already had Y-DNA testing on. The big surprize was matching 3 people who descend from Levi Leming b1805, who did not match Y-DNA of the other Leming men. What this means is that his mother was a Leming and he took her name. This is a huge breakthrough for the family. He was in the 1830 Monroe county census living near Jesse Leming who I think was his uncle. I believe now that Levi's mother was a sister of my Levi, and daughter of Thomas Leming b1760 and Mary Carter. In that same census, 2 pages from Levi and Jesse is a woman named Catherine Lemmons born 1780-90 who I have never been able to place in the tree and now I am wondering if she is the mother??? I also matched someone who descends from Daniel's son Samuel which is the first DNA connection to that son. I also had many connections to my womens lines in my tree, Maxey, Tubbs, Thacker, Blackwell, Holloway, Grigg, Fine. Then I had many on my maternal lines as well. I'm glad I did the test at ancestry. I did upload to gedmatch with my FTDNA test so both are there. It will be interesting to see if the matches there are different between the 2 tests since they are supposed to be the same test.

If you have a ancestry.com account, they released a new database that is incredible. It is scans of the original wills and probate records from all states. I have found many the New Jersey people, and some of the my TN branch. Reading the original wills gives so much more then the book summaries that have been the only thing I have ever seen. The writing is hard to read but it is worth the effort to do so. Here is the Eastman story, http://blog.eogn.com/2015/09/02/ancestry-launches-largest-online-collection-of-wills-and-probate-records-in-united-states/
