I just learned that our ancestor, Clinton Love has a 100% DNA match with John McKnight b.1725 Ireland or Scotland. This could confirm my belief that Clinton was either adopted or born to an unwed mother.
He was born, according to census records on July 4, 1804 in NY. I know that people of that day would often adopt our nation's birthday for their own, if they did not actually know when they were born.
I have also learned that he matched DNA with William McKnight b. 1799 in Ireland and with Thomas McKnight b. 1798 in SC which would tie them into the line of John McKnight also. Since I have just started to research this line, I do not have much to go on.
I have learned from one researcher that John had a sister, Janet who married John McClure and she, like John, died in Cumberland Co. PA.
Their father was listed as unknown McKnight from Scotland.
I am like you, looking for anything at all that might help.
