Note: Tests 68823-70733-71217-73308-312605 may help prove the genetic connection of various early Pennsylvania lines. All are believed to descend from William PARK(01A1) (b. Co. Donegal Ire.-d. Ire.). In addition, there are two other tests which, if upgraded, may show a genetic connection to others in this group. One (67245) has roots in York Co. Penn. while the other (70762) has origins in Scotland, then to the Salt Lake City, Utah area in the USA with no Pennsylvania connections, thus indicating a more distant common ancestor. Recommendation for all tests in this group would be to upgrade to at least the 37 marker level, while 67 or 111 markers would give more information.

109216: LK=QO 67 marker test
Earliest known ancestor is William PARK b. 27 Sep 1805 N.C. or S.C.-d. 16 Dec 1864 place uncertain but family was living in Jasper Co., Ga. There are two William Parkses in the Confederate army from Georgia who died in Dec 1864, one in Richmond, Virginia and one in a POW camp in Illinois. Cannot confirm or deny if there is a connection. William would have been 59 years old and the second guy was in the guard, which would have been more reasonable. He had four sons in the war, all but Quedalous Smith PARK, who was a child at the time of the war. William married Almira Catherine KENDRICK, whose mother was Elizabeth PARKS (04OX53), daughter of John (03OX11) & Katherine (HARRISON) PARKS (LK=OX). The earliest paper trail found is 1840 census in Pike Co., Ga. and a church history same year, same place. Note: LK=OX is in Group 010 and is not related genetically to LK=QO in any way.
