Summary of items since the last post:
1) Elias Wallen [yes Wallen not Walden] b ca 1780 NY is a 25 for 25 marker match with the Walden family of North Georgia.
They probably have a common ancestor who lived about 1600
2) An adopted man b. 1964 with, adoped surname Norman, is a 37 for 37 match for the Largest family in the study.
The two known names in this family are Waldron and Walden
If you have any family with these two surnames in the area of Meridian
MS let us know
3) A second case of an adoption (or mother's maiden name?) is a 35 for 37 maker match for the same family as in 2)
This family name is Elliott and Robert was born circa 1893 in KS or OK or ? -- Robert was good at avoiding the census taker. He died in the early 1930s in OK.
4) the full results are in for both descendants of James Walden of VT[NY} moving to Licking Co OH. The results confirm is connection to the family is 2) & 3)
5) A very close match to a rare haplotype of Evan Walden b. ca 1776 of Cambell County TN as been found. The ancestor is Abraham De Riviere of Netherlands moving to New York by 1678.
They must have a common ancestor-- but the where and when and who is a mystery. The match on 35 of 38 markers and have a "genetic distace of 4"

The interesting part is that Benjamin and Baalza Lei Walden
of Campbell Co TN are NOT related to the long-hunter family
as thought but are related to the Ravensworth Castle family.
That is the same familiy as Joseph Waldron

Surnames: Waldron/Waldon/Walden
I'm not really sure what all of this means, but I am looking for a family of at least 4 Waldron boys (Dan, John, Peter and ?) from VA. MAY have been from a family named Waldon or Walden. Any ideas?
