My husband's recent dna test indicates that there may be a connection between the Boston (or Bostian) family and the Byrne family(or other variations). I am looking for information on these families in the Effingham, Screven or even Savannah, GA area. I am not sure if that county was Chantham at the time or not.
First names that are involved are John Boston 1737-1810, James Boston 1767-1837, Elizabeth Briggs 1778-1812, James Briggs, Agnes Dell Briggs 1755. The Byrne family names are unknown but may include Andrew Burns, Anthony Byrne, David Burnes, John Byrnes.
The John Boston family arrived in Effingham County about 1785.
