440Lewis Pugh, born 1799
- Mar 4, 2008Hello everybody!
I got the preliminary results from my DNA test today and I've got
interesting news. My family has always been led to believe that we
descended from Robert ap Hugh and Sarah Evans. I've mentioned to
several of you in private e-mails that I didn't believe this to be
the case. We now have the DNA evidence that seems to prove it. My
DNA does not match with the Pughs of Hampshire County WV that are
know to descend from Robert ap Hugh and Sarah Evans. My DNA does
match those whose lineage is documented to go back to the David Pugh
born 1650 in Wales. I can prove with solid paper trail evidence that
my lineage goes back to Lewis Pugh, born in 1799. The booklet we
have by Coy Pugh does a solid job describing the descendents of
Lewis Pugh. I have the paper trail evidence on my lineage that goes
directly to him. However, he was born in Nelson County, Virginia,
NOT in Orange County, North Carolina as many have reported (I
believe it traces back to the inaccuracy in the Maud Pugh book). We
know that our Lewis Pugh's father and grandfather was a John Pugh Jr
and John Pugh Sr, and I have a good hunch on who they are and where
they are from, but I may need some assistance all of you in the Pugh
DNA Project to prove it with the paper evidence. I think we're going
to find that my John Pughs were the ones in Virginia all along and
not the ones in North Carolina as we have been lead to believe.
I'm anxiously awaiting the rest of my marker results to see where I
fit in to the grand scheme.
Ivan Darrell Pugh, Jr.
