Query Text:

William Tedder, born 1735, in VA had two sons born in Wake County, NC, Benjamin W and Littleton, whose descendants match me in all 37 DNA markers. Yet I am descended from the Harmon Tedder line. A 37 marker match gives a 95% probability of a common ancestor within the last three hundred years. There is only a limited way that that this 37 marker match could happen: First, was William the father of Harmon? First, Nancy Tedder, Williamís daughter stated that she had four brothers and sisters yet only three, Betsy, Littleton, and Benjamin W, are named. Or could William have had an earlier family, after all, his earliest named child, Betsy, was born in 1780 when William was 45. Could Harmon, James W, and even possibly Solomon be children of William? Second, could Harmon also be a son of Williamís father or one of Williamís brothers. Specifically, we know that Thomas Tedder came on the same ship as Thomas Evans to VA in 1635. Later we find Thomas Evans, the Lilleys, and Edward Tidder in Gloucester Va. Edward in a land transaction is later documented as Titerton. The Lilleys, Evans and William Tetterton and his son William move to what was later named Tyrell NC. In 1702 the younger William married Sarah Lilley. One of the children of this marriage was Samuel Tedder. This Samuel and Benjamin Evans went back to Virginia and Samuel bought land in Surry County in 1731. This Samuel had sons Samuel, Jacob, George, Benjamin, and William. Could this William who could well have been born in Surry County be the William who was supposed to born near Richmond? We know that this Samuel later moved back to NC. Now Harmon was supposed to be born in Granville County, NC, in 1762. I also found that there was a Samuel and Jacob Tedder who witnessed a land transaction in Granville in 1753; Samuel also witness a land transaction in Granville in 1762, the supposed year of Harmonís birth.
