Larry, I'm really unknowledgeable when it comes to the Genetic testing and which kit
is which (you might as well write it in French, as I'd have just as good a chance to
understand that as I would who's genetic kit is who's). All I know for certain is
my line includes Francis Lee CAMPBELL, son of Lawrence CAMPBELL (SR), and Captain in the
Virginia Militia during the Revolutionary War, born between 1758-1760 (in either Scotland
or Virginia), and buried at Cottage Hill in Virginia. Lawrence has some relationship to a
Henry CAMPBELL, as he (Lawrence) is listed as an executor in Henry's will. In
addition, Henry married a Charity Catlett, while Lawrence was married to a Henrietta
I'm still very interested in the evidence you have showing Francis Lee in Loudon CO.
Are you refering to the Francis Campbell That is kit # 64941 in group 30
of the Campbell DNA project? If this is the Campbell you are mentioning
here, then the results of the 67 marker test that just came in, show that my
ancestor John Campbell KIT # 73872 that married Anney Webster in Madison Co.
Ala. in 1819 is a very close relative. We are one off on that 67 marker
along with Abraham campbell KIT # 7678 the Campbellight Minister who is an
exact match to John's. Please let me know if this is who you are talking

There are no living males Campbell descendants from my line (I'm descended
thru my Grandmother, the daughter of Herman Benford CAMPBELL-his only
child). I don't know of any other relatives of my Grandfather (I do know
he had 2 brothers, but they've both passed on years ago). I don't believe
I'm a candidate for testing thru this line.
I'm very interested in the evidence you have showing Francis Lee in Loudon
CO. in 1757. Everything I have shows Francis Lee was born between
1758-1760; which means what I have is either wrong OR this Francis Lee may
be the ancestor of Lawrence, my Francis Lee's father (in keeping with
Scottish tradition of naming the males after the grandparents).
Looking forward to hearing from you.

Rob, Is there anyone to do a DNA test?? Francis Lee was up in Loudoun
County with Aeneas Campbell in 1757. Aeneas was styled as from St Mary's
in some documents. We don't know where Aeneas came from but it sure is
nice to find others looking also.
