One of the members of the Smith DNA Project at FTDNA has, on the paternal line, McBee, matches with a very large group of Smiths. the DNA Group based on YDNA matches is GRP-R-M269-16 so at least on the paternal male to male to male line, at some point McBees had an intersection with Smith. You can see this as well on the Big-Y chart on FTDNA. the particular line is William McBee m Louisa P Smith of NC in Grainger Co TN but there is no proof that Louisa P Smith is the same Smith match with the McBee. What we would like is if there are any male McBee descendants of Israel Simth who have done YDNA or are considering it, to come join the project so we can compare. Must have a direct line from the ancestor down to the living male descendant McBee.
On Louisa P Smith. Her father is said to be Isaac (maybe with middle name of Abner?) Smith b c 1780 in NC and died in 1862 in Greene Co Illinois. Right now we have several autosomal testers starting with Louisa P. Would like to find male Smith descendants of Isaac to compare with on YDNA. For example, if Louisa P Simth and Isaac Smith are from Chatham Co NC, does a living male Smith from Isaac match any others that have tested that have an origin in Chatham Co NC/
More from one of the members with this line.
