Powells of the NC "Powell Branches" (NC-1 through NC31),

Note the column called "Powell Branches" in our adm. Jim Barrett's
table at: http://home.flash.net/~parino/powell-surname-dna-project.htm

I hope the table below does not line-wrap. If it does, I recommend
you all paste it into Notepad & maybe it will be ok or can be
unwrapped. I hope it looks ok in this list's archives.

This A.M. I have been trying to get an idea of how many haplotypes
might be still untested that will be in the NC "Powell Branches". I
need a match for my distant Powell cousin's kit which has been
placed in a "Powell Branch" that has been named "Powell Branch"
NC-31.

I plan to find my distant Powell cousin's most distant Mr. Powell
cousin & pay at least part of his test to make certain that I have
the DNA of my MDA (Most Distant Ancestor) (Caleb Powell b. before
1765 somewhere in NC who married Dorcas __ & lived in Fairfield Co.
SC where he died in 1828 & she in 1835). There is always a chance
that the lab made a mistake &/or there has been a false paternity
event somewhere in the line between the MDA & the test subject,
until we have a match from another son of one's MDA.

Below I recorded how many of us have multiple tests from our
respective MDAs. A few of you do, but not me. I guess it is
obvious that we all need a 2nd test if we don't have one. If my 2nd
test matches my 1st test as I expect it will, I hardly know what to
do next. Take up a collection to test random NC Powells who know
their ancestry back to the 1700s & are not among our listed NC
"Powell Branches". Or, maybe I should just wait & hope & go back to
genealogical methods. I think I need to look in that Powell book
for other Caleb Powells & test DNA from those Powells of those
counties. Who has that book? I know it is at Caroliniana Library
in Columbia SC.

Well here is my little study below. 1st you will see the NC part of
our administrator's (Jim Barrett's) list of Powell Branches, then a
resorting according to given names with the number of kits from each
"Powell Branch".

Total 30

My suggestion is that we all have a 2nd test from a Mr. Powell
descended from another son of our MDA, at least if we have no
25-marker match from another "Powell Branch".

I expected DNA to solve my Powell problem without further effort on
my part, by getting the NC county of origin directly from a DNA
match, but my 1st DNA test has not done that for me, since it had no
25-marker match. How are you all doing?

Maybe my Family Finder matches (when results come in) may give me
some matches who are Powell descendants, pointing me to my NC county
of origin.
