I DNA tested my 3 children and one son shows as 1% Benin/Togo, my ex-father in law has also tested and he shows having SE Bantu. I am guessing 1% means about 10 generations back? Between my ex-in laws and myself we have a large family tree working, but none of us can find the link.
We have a photo of a my son's great great grandmother (ex father in laws Grandmother) in the family that was always rumored to be part American Indian, but we have found that to be false since no one tested (my 3 kids, father in law and his daughter) show Native American. We are stuck on this lady too since rumor has it she was adopted. I cannot find anything on her before 1896 when she was married but the record I found on Ancestry doesn't show parents names. I can't find her on Census before 1900. Lilly Grace Taylor b. 1875 virginia, d. 1962 Virginia married Brady W. Nash. Would love some ideas on how to locate her parents and how to find where the African might come into the family line.
