I took the yDNA test and just got my results back last week. I am hoping to get past my brick wall, Enoch Wood, with the test results. I have an exact match with a Wood family in Washington County AR that goes back to 1750. The other match I have goes back to about 1650 in VA. I only supplied the dates so that you know my line is from a male Wood ancestor. My brick wall, Enoch Wood, was born in SC in 1794 and can be found on the 1830 census of Habersham county Georgia, 1840 and 1850 census of Pope county AR.
Now the mystery. My yDNA test results match exactly with a male whose surname is TOWE. The match is from a 37 marker yDNA test, with no deviation, which means that we have a 99% probability of sharing a close male relative.
My question is, are there any TOWE families with a mystery origin?
