I am new here and had my mtDNA done at Ancestry where they told me I was from Haplogroup "U" only. Nothing after it. My materal surnames are:
Bishop - lived in Alabama, migrating from Georgia and South Carolina
Allen - lived in Alabama coming from Georgia,
Stockton - migrating from Rutherford, NC through Georgia into Alabama and some going out west into Texas and other states
Callahan - coming from Ireland into Rowan Co., and Rutherford Co., NC into Georgia and Alabama
McMurray - North Carolina
McMurray - coming from Scotland into Rutherford Co., NC
And all this is mother, her mother, her mother etc.
Just got this Haplogroup Analysis back from James Lick. Tested at 23&Me.
Haplogroup - U5b3
Earliest female ancestor known: Mary Willlingham, VA: Narcissa D. Nantz, VA,KY,MO; Mary Wingfield Claybrook, MO, TX; Lilly Barry, MO, TX; Stella B. McKisick, TX; Lillamae Younger, TX: Me.

My son decided to do a DNA test because we know so little of our Ancestry. His maternal side (ME) showed me to be subgroup U5b2a2 of Haplogorup U5. Now I want to find out just what that means. I am very new to this type of research. As far as I know, my mothers family was from the North Carolina area.
