Box y-DNA tests needed in Box family history
Posted by: Thad Box (ID *****3413) Date: April 10, 2010 at 13:49:33

We have been able to link my y-DNA test to three other documented family histories to three sons of Robert Box 1734 of Laurens, SC. We know, biologically that Stephen, Robert and John Morris are Robert 1734's sons.

We have contact with a couple of others who have DNA tests whose ancestors come from Laurens area of South Carolina. But we have not been able to determine a common ancestor.

A number of genealogists are doing good work trying to link the Laurens Boxes to earlier immigrants and/or to each other. But given the paucity of records, the task is great and results are tentative.

I would like to make contact with any Box who has a y-DNA test and a well documented family history.

I urge any male Box to get a y-DNA test and share its results. DNA analysis is a valuable tool in sorting out our origins.
