    • Hello David,

      I recently upload mine and my Dad's data from 23andMe to FTDNA. I see that we have several surnames in common: Brittain; Cantrell; Jones; Moore; Potter; Smith.

      Dad is 86 years old and was born and raised in Cannon, Woodbury, TN. His paternal side mostly lived in the DeKalb County, TN area.

      With all of those names matching up, I don't know where to begin to figure out our mutual ancestor/s. But I'll try:

      Hannah Brittain (1725-1769) was married to John M. Cantrell Sr. (1724-1803)

      James Moore (1744-1831) married to Susannah Jones (1753-1825)

      Note: I have other sets of the surname "Jones" too, who don't appear to be related to one another - but ya never know. I can provide all of the Jones in my direct line if you need for me to.

      Addl Note: Dad has Cantrells on both his paternal and maternal sides, so it gets a little confusing - for me anyway.

      Aaron Cantrell (1770-1834) married Martha Elizabeth Smith (1765-1866)

      John Smith (1725-1798) married to Martha Potter (1743-1826)

      Addtional surnames of Potter and Smtih too.

      Assuming that you have all of these same (or most) ancestors, I hope we can try to narrow it down as to where yours and my branch split off.

      Thank you, Joyce
