-The I, I1, and I1a lineages are nearly completely restricted to northwestern Europe. These would most likely have been common
within Viking populations. One lineage of this group extends down into central Europe. Haplogroup I dates to 23,000 years ago or
longer. Lineages not in branches I1a, I1b or I1c are found distributed at low
frequency throughout Europe Group White Oak http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~hjohnson/haplogroup.i.html#Group_White_Oak

Haplogroup R1b1 -Haplogroup R1b is the most common haplogroup in European populations. It is believed to have expanded throughout Europe as humans re-colonized after the last glacial maximum 10-12 thousand years ago. This lineage is also the haplogroup containing the Atlantic modal haplotype . Group Elm

Haplogroup E3a - Haplogroup E3a is an Africa lineage. It is currently hypothesized that this haplogroup dispersed south from northern Africa within the last 3,000 years, by the Bantu agricultural expansion. E3a is also the most common lineage among African Americans

My Notes On This Group: The Roman Empire was the first to use troops all over the world they left blood groups ever where they went from Countries of Africa to England: The Roman Empire was one of the VAST spreading Empires in the World to first use troops of other Countries it conquered. The use of using other troops from Conquered Countries spread with each developing Empire.
Red is the County lines and Parish Lines: These lines can and will change people in a County or in a Parish. This is to serve as a Time line to show changes, in lines or in changes where families moved to from this area.
Teal is being used for Quaker dates, these are not the same as the Julian Calender for all the other information, these need to be transcribed to be used in a Julian Calender.
Quaker dates have not been translated Before the 1752 calendar change, the first month of the year was March. From: Mary E. Stewart
In 1752 the new year began to be counted from Jan 1. Before that it ran from March 26-March 25, Julian Calender changed. So a date in July 1750 would be earlier in the same "year" as one in Feb 1750 (which once 1752 rolled around, would be thought of as the next year). From: Barbara Schenck
Haplogroup E3b1a - This lineage is estimated to have originated in north-eastern Africa about 23,000 years ago. Some of its branches exited Africa during the Paleolithic, and today it can be found in Europe, the Middle East, and north and east Africa: DNA Of Researcher Brett Johnson

1781: For Catherine Crawley Ward (the Queen), Benjamin Ward's wife, the Revolution in 1781 was not a time to fight, but rather to escape Tarleton's raiders. Knowing the impending danger ahead she hastily gathered her young son, Benjamin Ward Jr. and valuable jewels, silks, and silver. With only her chair driver to protect her Catherine made her way to Ward’s Fork plantation in Charlotte County, Virginia. Upon entering what is today Burkeville, Catherine was stopped by Tarleton’s men. Catherine hid Benjamin under the seat and prepared to face her fate. To her dismay the soldiers took her silver and jewels, and shredded her silk. But she and her son were not hurt. http://www.longwood.edu/staff/welchds/Westcreek/americanrevolutionatwc.html
