That's the very group I'm writing about. My kit was 29533;,I had taken the DNA test supposing that I would match to the Holloway line. To my surprise, I match the Phillips, Gregory lines pretty closely--Williamson Phillips and Charles Gregory are an exact DNA match, I am within 2 markers of matching those two and three matches with the others in that group. I only know that my Jacob M. Holloway was born somewhere in Tn. in or around 1807. There may well be a Holloway/Phillips connection in Rhea County, Tennessee as I might have seen a Phillips there and also a James P. Holloway. You are right about the possibility of an adoption--since my ancestor, John R. Holloway settled in Jefferson Co., Ill. in 1866 and there were plenty of Gregorys in that same county I have wondered about that connection as well. Those Gregorys came from North Carolina. If you have any ideas please let me know as I am at a brick wall on this--I never expected other surnames to pop up. Incidentally, on FamilyTreeDNA I saw an ancestor migration map showing that my people came from England, not Ireland, Scotland. Don't know if that would help either of us at all. Jim H.
