Of the brothers that moved from TN to OK, I cannot find any record of one
brother, William, b 1860. In 1880 he was in Roane Co. TN in my Grandfathers
household. The brothers and one sister that came to OK were: Mary Sellers (1849) and her husband James Humpheries John Isaac (1851) and his wife Sarah Ann Humphries Jonas Lafayette (1853) and his wife Mary Wallace & two children, after Mary
died ?? he married Elizabeth Johnson in 1894 and had three more children. James Filmore (1858) and his wife Georgia Adeline Pleasant McClelland (1862) If anybody finds a William b 1860 in TN, let me know. Edgar

EDGAR, 
I am NOT sure these are percentages.
They are listed on Your personal dna page and I'm Not sure I should have posted them.

I am also Not sure what the reading means.
I assumed it was comparing Your Chart to that Ethnic Group. I will try and find out more. Assuming is always dangerous, esp in genealogy or life!

I don't know why the Ethnic chart doesn't show on our dna pages. Just on Each Personal Sellers page.
I think this info would be helpful to All. But, it may just be personal
info.
If I overstepped, I am sorry. But, this info may or may Not be important to what we are discussing.

SOME of our SELLERS are proven born in Ireland, etc. (Rev War files) SOME of our SELLERS are proven as immigrants on ships from England, etc (doesn't prove Birth Place)

But, we had Europe before we had England, Ireland, Germany, etc???

So, how would that show on the Ethnic chart?

I will try and get a letter written on the FT page and advise.

SOMEONE on our list was good on explaining. HOPE they can help also.

Thanks for your help.
Yes, I remember Prodigy days also!

Best Wishes,
marie, iowa

Marie, I'm curious as to how my dna shows 39% England? The haplotype does
indicate Western Europe or England, but I havn't seen anything that shows
these percentages. I have not done very much dna research, but I do lurk and

read every post on this list. I am amazed at the work you put into this list

and I congradulate you for doing so. Remember thee old Prodigy days??? Edgar Sellers
