DNA Testing

A descendant of George's son Hugh has had his DNA tested as part of the MorrowDNA Project. His results match descendants of John Morrow m. Mariah Cox (also of Washington Co, AR) and Hugh Morrow m. Margaret Holmes (of Jefferson Co, AL). Although the participant has only tested 25 markers, and the 24/25 result indicates only a 60% chance of a common male ancestor within 8 generations (the participants are all 7-8 generations removed from common ancestor John Morrow), the other participants have tested more markers, and the relationships hold. Most notably, one matches 36/37 (or a 90% chance of a common ancestor within 8 generations) with a descendant of one of John's brothers, Hugh d. 1852 in Pontotoc, MS. These results are all consistent with the men being grandsons of George Morrow d. 1790 Abbeville, SC, m. Mary Calhoun. In addition, the results rule out descent from the most commonly shown Morrow pedigree, originating in Norfolk, VA.
