- Harvard has original records of many, many Scots prisoners. I understand
that you must be doing work OTHER THAN GENEALOGY to access them.

Yes, you have to be a member or alumnus/a of the University to use the
But what does Harvard have that is unique? Can you find it in the
On-Line catalog, HOLLIS?

Do you have documentation for the information you noted about Neile Mackhone?
I have long thought that he was connected to a man of that name who is in
Isle of Wight County, VA by 1680; however, I have been unable to find proof. I
have also been unable to prove that the Cones who appear in NC by 1728 are
related. The proximity (NE counties of NC) to VA would lend credence to the theory
and some on the Internet have stated it as fact, but to my knowledge, no proof
has been found to establish a connection. I am most interested in your
information, for I have been researching this name for years and have about given up
hope of finding anything further.
A DNA project among a number of Cone males completed several years ago
determined that there was no common progenitor for Daniel Cone of Connecticut and
the several Southern lines.

genetic biology is limited, it couldn't possibly be
wholely accurate. At some point in the past that
would break down.
Wait... I heard about a test regarding some of the
North Carolina Cones, which would only help support
the idea that Daniel and Neile could've been brothers.
If you have further information, let me know.
