Hello Tim!

Thanks for your message. Due to the fact that you descend from a William
Knox born 1798 in South Carolina, I believe there's a high probability your Knox
ancestors were part of the extended family represented by Line No. 1 in the
Knox DNA Project:


But there's also a reasonable chance you could be descended from one of our
other lines.

Therefore I believe the best way you might advance the project (and probably
your own research on the Knoxes) would be to help us arrange a DNA test for
a Knox-surnamed man who descends in an unbroken male-to-male line from a
brother of Rody Jane Knox. I just hope you can locate one such of your Knox

At the same time, please feel free to join the new mailing list for Knox DNA

In the meantime, please always feel free to get in touch with me whenever
you have questions either about DNA genealogy in general or about the Knox
project in particular.

Best regards,
