I appreciate your response. Your previous reference to Vol XVI, #2, pg 55. There are several pages (54 - 61) that pertain to Peter Field Jefferson and his family. Have you read all of them?

I don't have anything "on paper" as who Henry's father might be. But I have heard some of the rumors mentioned. I am pretty sure Martha "Patsy"'s father's farm and the Davis farm bordered in the early 1800's.

There is an organization called Family Tree DNA (on the net). On my father's side there has been a question for years as who the father of a grandfather+++ (doc'd) born in 1776 was. No one could find a document that could "prove" any connection to any one.

I joined the Family Tree DNA project several years ago. There is a DNA test for males (only??) that can identify family lines based on test results. I purchased the required test kit soon after becoming a participant. A couple months ago, data released by a DNA Specialist who joined a couple of years ago, confirmed a 99%+ connection to an England emigrant to Virginia in the 1600's.

I have tried to find a "Henry Jefferson male" who would agree to the same test. If one were to do this, it could most likely confirm the rumor or "bring up a whole new can of worms". One's test results are compared with every test result in the Family Tree's database (all surnames). Any/all match(s) are sent to the tested individual. There is a Jefferson database which could offer a discounted test price.

Are you related to Henry?
