    • Dave,

      I am sharing a report generated after we talked.

      My wife's maiden is masked to "R."

      For searching this, know that the living male Byars descendant in this line is William Lemuel Byars, II. He was born before 1940 so he should be searchable as William L. Byars, son of William L. Byars I, son of the James G. Byars in the shared chart. He has autosomal and STR testing done with Family Tree DNA. Having a basis, I will let him know and should we decide to do so, he will agree to SNP testing.

      Know that he, a 1st cousin of my wife's and a nephew of my wife by her sister have confirming matches to Byars of the South. But, I agree, the Nathan Byars of the Cowpens relationship merits careful review. My conclusion when I looked at it was there was a possibility of an independent immigration of Byars to the Carolina area even though I found the same evidence as you that James Henry was in Granville County, actually moving back and forth from Louisa County, VA to Granville County. Another solid genealogical trace was the trace of a COL William Wallace to the Abingdon, VA area where he founded a college whose name now slips from me.

      We can check out any questions you may have. I will be looking for matches.

      I go with you. I have found and identified male Y-DNA running Family Finder matches back through three female lines and working (and finding) Y-DNA matches of descendants of differing sons of a person born about 1700. That particular ancestral material line is now confirmed by proper matches by SNPs to sons of ancestral Wallaces leaving this Wallace farm in the 1820.

      I administer the Wallace DNA Project of some 700 with some 400+ males of 25+ haplogroups and about 400 autosomal test results. Most find some matches in that project. I am an I2c PF6328 > IF2044. There is a huge line I2c PF6328 > BY19 (BY445) who immigrated to the North in the early 1700s but are scattered in the South from the Carolinas heading west through Tennessee dating to the late 1800s.

      But, I am with you. No matter the quality of DNA matches, it means little without good genealogy. Equally, I seldom do genealogical reviews anymore without corresponding DNA matches.
