Subject: [VALANCAS] Moses Cushenberry Is a DNA Descendant of the QuisenberryFamily
Date: Fri, 20 Aug 2010 19:59:11 -0500 (CDT)
DNA testing results have come back from the DNA testing company and our Moses Cushenberry that died in Bourbon Co., Ky in 1792 is a descendant of the Quisenberry family of Virginia that originated in England and back to Germany. We matched the two men who can prove their descent to Aaron Quisenberry, Sr and his line of Humphrey Quisenberry, etc. But even though DNA results proves Moses descends from this family it doesn't show which generation but it does show that we do have a common ancestor. The down side is that we still need a record to find who Moses parents are.
Aaron Quisenberry, Sr's sons are Rev. James Quisenberry and his brother John A. Quisenbery that left Virginia and settled in Fayette and Ckark County, Ky with John A. Quisenbery moving to warren Co., Ky in 1808 with our Moses sons going there in 1810.
That is how DNA works but my cousins and I are happy after 29 years of research to know Moses is related and descends from the Quisenberry family. :)
