Raley/ Watts DNA Connection????
Posted by: Susan Watts (ID *****9656) Date: February 14, 2012 at 03:11:25

My Husband is a Watts, he has a paper trail to prove it, birth certs. marriage license ect. going back to approx. 1785. He recently did the DNA test and found he doesn't match any of the Watts family he is supposed to be related to. He matches more closely to the Raley Family going back to Samuel 1796 SC, Benjamin 1818 GA and John W. McKinney 1865. The Watts family he is supposed to be related to was in the Robertson and Davidson Co.(Springfield, Pleasent View, Ashland City) area of Tennessee since the 1800's. Does anyone have any clues as to what happened, maybe an adoption or a baby born out of wedlock.

Thank You
