441Re: Lewis Pugh, born 1799
- Mar 4, 2008Hi, this is wonderful. My brother's DNA is being processed right now
(James Riley Pugh, Jr) and I know we are direct descendants of James
Riley Pugh Sr, William James Thomas Pugh, William Pugh, son of
Jonathan, son of Joseph Sr, son of David Pugh...(arrival from Wales
and married Catherine Price in 1698)......so it will be very
interesting to see how my brother's and your DNA match up.....our
results won't be available until April 2008 I would like to
communicate privately (tsandgolf@...) tina pugh sanders
