Missing Horsley Link
  • kdeguzman September 2014
    Hi, Anderson Horsley and Betsy Williams are my ancestors. I have several DNA matches with people who share the Horsely, Cabell and Williams surnames. My DNA matches are as much as 96%, 95% with some people who show our MRCA is in the generation where Sally Sarah Horsley, Benjamin Horsley, Rowland Horsley, etc lived. At least 6 different DNA matches of varying degrees list them or other Horsley and Cabell common ancestors (in the generation of Anderson's parents and before). My issue is that while my DNA matches prove we are related through the Horsleys, the relatives do not list any mulatto ancestors, including Anderson, in their family trees, thus I am unable to confirm which Horsley was his parent. I have only been able to trace Anderson as far back as his marriage to Elizabeth "Betsy" Williams on Fredrick M Cabell's estate. If anyone has any information they can share, please contact me at "kat101@me.com".

Howdy, Stranger!
