Seeking info on Nancy Larue who married 1st a Norman, 2nd Matthias Lee in Alabama. Had 2 sons by Matthias - Samuel Henry and Lafayette. Believe this Samuel Henry to be my greatgrand father. My grandfather, Samuel Henry Jr, never knew his father as he died shortly before his birth. Samuel Henry came to Texas and married Amanda Barnett and they had several children. Anyone with any information please let me know. I've been trying for years to figure this out.

Oops! I should have asked if you have any dates, even approximate dates would help.

I shouldn't have been so vague - sorry. From info I can gather Nancy was born in 1816 in Alabama. Marriage record on computer shows her marriage age as that and she married Thomas Norman in 1832 but no state is listed. She married Matthias Lee in 1850 and Samuel Henry was born about 1852 in Talladega County, Alabama. On an 1880 census Samuel Henry listed his mother's birth place as Alabama and his father's as South Carolina.

There has been so much confusion on Samuel. A granddaughter of Samuel's oldest daughter tried to trace lineage and she finally decided his father was Thomas which created a great doubt because belive it or not there is an Alabama census that shows a Samuel Henry and a Lafayette right age group under Matthias Lee and Nancy Norman and also under Thomas and E.C. Lee in the same census year - (I believe that is 1860). But one clue that kind of points to Matthias is Samuel Henry and Lafayette are listed in household of Joseph M.C. Norman as hired help at ages 16-18 or so. Seems to me that might be a half brother, but who knows. Anyway, I recently had my DNA done on Ancestry.com and the only thing that came up in one other person's lineage who Ancestry says is a 4-5 cousin of mine has Matthias Lee listed in his tree. So at this time I am leaning to Matthias as being the right person. Anyway, I am 77 yrs of age and want to unravel this sometime in my life. Another thing that I have no idea how would fit in with anything. My grandfather told one of his daughters that he had a lot of Dutch ancestry. Lee is so English so I have no idea where that could come from. Anyway, any help would be so appreciated.

According to these earlier census records, when Nancy would be the one giving information to census takers, she was born in South Carolina. So, born about 1816 in south Carolina.Back to the census'.
1820 Pendleton district South Carolina-
John Laroo: 1male 2 females b.1811thru 1820, 1 male 2 females born 1805 thru 1810, 1 male born 1802 thru 1804,1 male 1 female born 1776 thru 1794.
1810 Pendleton district SC John Larue
2 female b.1801-10, 1male 1 female b.1775-94, 2 females b.1765-74, 1 male b.before 1765.
Abram Larue
1 male b.1801-10, 2 males b.1775-94, 1 male 1female b.before 1765.
This is probably the Abram Larue that died in Madison county Al before 1830.
1800 Darlington county SC John Larow:
2 males b.1791 thru 1800, 1 male b.1784 thru 1790, 1 male b. 1755 thru 1774, 1male b.before 1755, no females listed.
1790 census Newbury county SC, Abraham Larew:
4 males age 16 and over, 3 females.
may I ask what the dna test results were? My brother spit in the cup for me for dna results. Our Rasmussen line is I1, mtdna was J1c3. My mother's maiden name was LaRue, but of course the dna trail goes through her mother on back to Norway. The Family Finder has place about 70 people as my 3rd or further back cousins, but Richard Soash is the only one I have possitively connected to on family Tree dna. His mother also had LaRue for a maiden name. His Uncle tested for the LaRue line, I think the result he got was in the R1b1*** line.

Unfortunately, the DNA test that Ancestry did is one that is used for both males and females and pulls one's genetic info from both your father and mother's ancestors but no markers are provided. This is what they supplied: I am(supposedly) British Iles - 50%, Scandinavian - 37%, Persian/Turkey/Caucan - 7%, and Southern European - 6% (inclues italy and france). Then they give you a list of others who have trees in Ancestry.com that show you are related to - mine were from 2nd-3rd cousins - (2 people -1 of them I knew about, the other I did not and is the one that contains the name Matthias Lee. These are supposedly 98% accurate; then for 4th-5th cousins supposedly like 95-96%correct and I show a goodly number of those; then it goes on down from there.
I wish I could compare something with you to give me assurance that I am on the right path. Thanks so very much for your help. It is so gracious of you to put forth so much effort.
