I am trying to figure out how I am related to the Vannoys. I have a FTDNA match to E. Harold Vannoy as does my 1st cousin 2X removed. Our common ancestor is James C Baumann (born 1848, root goes back to Switzerland) and Matilda (born 1852 LA). The suggested relationship is 4th cousin - remote. I have known DNA matches to two other cousins but they don't show up as matches to Vannoy. I didn't see a Vannoy match to any of us on gedmatch.com.
My husband's 4th ggrandfather is Nathaniel Vannoy. The last one I have is John Vannoy 1644. I have seen several listings for Elijah and many of them have Frances as his father. There has to be an answer somewhere!
Sorry, but I have not made any new discoveries for Elijah Vannoy. I have been working mostly on some of the more obscure Vannoys west of the Mississippi River. Had about 3 1/2 years of not doing much research when my husband had cancer. He passed away in June 2007 and I moved back "home" to North Platte, NE. .... Ruby
