Recently a test result was received for a probable descendant of Elijah Smallwood of Surry Co., North Carolina. His test results closely matched those of three other participants at least one of whom is a descendant of Hezekiah Smallwood and Elizabeth Broughton of Laurel/Rockcastle Co, KY and Schuyler Co., MO. Hezekiah has been a brick wall for us, so this news is very encouraging. It means that their descendants are most likely descendants of William Smallwood and Mary Hanson of Granville Co., North Carolina.
We still need more males with the surname Smallwood who are probable descendants of the Charles Co., Maryland Smallwoods to take the Y-DNA test. Please encourage your relatives to participate!
NOTE: On March 1, 2004 this family was located in the 1850 US Federal Census living in Rockcastle Co., Kentucky. It was learned that Reilly's first name begins with an "H". In fact, we're not even certain if either of his names was Reilly. On March 3, 2004 it was learned that H's complete name was Hezekiah. This family was found in the 1860 census living in Missouri.
