I have a DNA candidate who is a descendant of Dorcas Midgett born 1836 Currituck County, NC, died before 1870, married Ignatious Scarborough (1823-1901). We do not know who her mother is and we are hopeful to be able to connect her to her family by using DNA.
This test is currently not funded. If you descend from this line, this test is relevant to your family tree and the results can tell us if her direct ancestor was native and may also be able to connect her to her family line via a genetic match. You can contribute at this link through the Hatteras Yline project for descendants of Dorcas Midgett. Here's the link - http://www.familytreedna.com/group-general-fund-contribution...
