150Coming On Board
- Jun 17, 2003Hello to the List
I am Wm. Cone of Georgia. I joined your list yesterday and this is my first
post. I have followed the John and Sara list in that on the list is # 150 is
Neile Mackhone and that I conceive him to be Neile McConne of the Isle of
Wight Parrish Virginia. A will was recorded for Neile McConne in that Parish in
What sets Isle of Wight as that the Master of the John and Sara was John
Greene, recorded to be of the Isle of Wight Parish. Neile Mcconne seems to be
the probable progemtor of the Cone families from Virginia into North Carolina
down to mainly Georgia and Florida and too including South Carolina, Alabama,
Mississippi, Louisanna and Texas.
This research has been accomplished within a group of Cone researchers over
a period of years. Both by hand to hand and within the past years across the
Internet. Adding also that DNA research has been so added within the past
three years. To those that are researching the Daniel Cone group I might add that
several of that group also were included in the DNA testing. Some markers did
relate but did show a different progenitor.
Adding here is that I discovered the Regiment List of the Battle of
Worcestor, UK. This list of the regiments is in the Museum of Edinburgh Castle in
Scotland. With the aid of some in Scotland the search is on to the possible
records of the men of these regiments is there in Scotland.
When it comes to Daniel Cone being listed, two things are here in that # 147
is listed as Mackhoe, Dan to be Daniel Cone. Comparing # 147 and # 150 there
is a similarity in that # 147 is the same as # 150 in the spelling exception
being the "n" is missing. The Clan Donald lays fact to the best and more
possible that these two are progenitors of Cone's as we are of Clan Donald as record
in other records of Scotland. There also is a John, David, William and Samuel
as well that could be probable.
One point is that several of these lists are there to be found and yet the
spellings have been construed as different with even possible being added to
other surnames. Another point is that the Owner of the John and Sara is said to
be of Charlestown. New Hampshire I would presume as this was a major
shipbuilding port in that time with the owners being connected to families in England.
And often these owners did realize who was buttering the bread for profit and
therefore even loyal to the English for the aspect of being profitable in
their ventures. So to say that all the prisoners melted into New England would
forego the market of selling indentured to the plantations of Virginia, of
whence crops and goods were produced to be sent back to England.
I close at this point as I may be reaching a limit. But I will look forward
