Mavis, do you have any connection with the Draytons of South Carolina? Because if you do, then I've just set up the group - The Draytons and the Grimkes - on this site. Would you like to join? All the best, Bill Drayton.

I would love to stay in contact with you, Mavis. I don't know if there is something to make of this, but my g-grandmother lived in CA at one point in time. Her name was Carroll Margaret Cooper-Jones(Elton Jones). From the story my grandmother told me of her dad(Elton) he was wealthy and had a home around the corner from Michael Jackson, and Disney Land. His moms name was Hattie Jones!

Have you read My Great, Great, Grandfather's Jouney to an Island of Freedom by Col. Lafayette Jones, Jr.? It's ISBN 978-0-615-22337. It's about the Jones family of Williamsburg, VA. Jones says, "The purpose of the book was to provide new information on a great "story" related to my family and the free black settlement at Hot Water. Most of the information is based on local and state records, interviews, and articles written by renowned historians." This "might" be some of your family! Whether it is or not, it is informative and educational in an easy-to-read format. My only complaint is some poor punctuation, capitalization, etc. Just thought I'd mention it to you. It states the publishing company is Jenlaf Publishing, 102 Flintlock Rd., Williamsburg, VA 23185 PH: 757-565-2724. You might enjoy chatting with Col. Jones. He's a tall, dark, and handsome man. I met him at a genealogy conference in Hampton, VA.

Send the results to dmgra3@wm.edu, and I'll compare them. Which company did the DNA test that gave you I1a? Can't wait to hear from you at my regular email address.

Mavis,
My maternal grandfather's line is I1a. We didn't necessarily have any "close" relatives in GA, but I know some of the family surname shows up in the deep South. They were originally Virginians. Send me your DNA results, and I'll compare them with my family's. My email is dmgra3@wm.edu.
