As it turns out …
Fred is related to us!
He is descended from Jeremiah’s son Frederick.
Yes that is me!! Great to hear from you!! I will get back to you later with some more info - I am just getting ready to leave town for a week!! Anxious to hear the whole story of where are lines cross!! Are you on Facebook?
Will get back...
I believe we are a cousin match through GEDMatch.
Are you a descendant of Jeremiah Davis and Charity Drew?
First some background.
About 5 years ago, I started researching my Davis roots through Ancestry.com. There is a group of about 15 of us who are part of a Google email group and we share genealogy information. Now, none of us have found a direct link to Jeremiah Davis and Charity Drew, but we are all somehow related to one of their 9 children.
My 2x great grandparents were John Davis and Mary Ann Walters.
Just recently I sent an email to the group asking if anyone had done AncestryDNA. I had gotten my results back and had made some interesting finds. This was part of the reply back from David Dankert,
“I did the 23andme and submitted my moms dna. We have over 1000 matches …. Our closest match is Fred Krause whos gg grandfather was Ebenezor Davis Mirandis brother.”
This is where it gets interesting. I just recently downloaded my AncestryDNA results to GEDMatch, and you are near the top of my list of “one to many“ results.
In doing a Google search of your email address, I see that you are part of ATR Computers in Davison, Michigan, which is close to Flint.
I then did a search of the member directory in Ancestry and found what I believe to be your tree.
From what I can figure out, you are not descended through Ebenezer, but through Frederick Larkin Davis. Is that correct?
This is my tree on Ancestry:
Here are our respective lines of descent
Jeremiah Davis & Charity Drew
Frederick Larkin Davis
Lora Evelyn Davis
Dorothy Jane Bordeau
Charles Otto Krause Jr
Are you the Fred Krause I believe you to be?
