Rosline was born in Wabash Illinois probably in the 1830's.
Her sister Evaline was born in 1840 and a little younger.
Their parents were Adams Shepard and Joanna Gerrish.
I have information about all the other siblings but I can't find Rosline.

Any help gratefully received.

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / I am totally lost, can anyone help please ?
« on: Sunday 08 November 20 20:40 GMT (UK)  »
My test was done with 23and me, where I found an unknown first Cousin in my search for my Grandfather.
The problem is how we are related.
It has to be an illegitimate birth but who the parents and child were , we are stuck.

We both link to somebody who has the surname of my supposed Grandfather in his family. The link is 4.2 generations which I don't understand.

Another thing is that my new found Cousin wasn't aware of any English ancestry, hers is Polish and German.

Our link is 11.09 per cent DNA.
Largest segment 85.3 and total segments 817.8.

My link to the person with the supposed Grandfather's surname is
Largest segment 24.5 and total segments 40.1.

I'll be very grateful if somebody can give me some ideas please.

I am looking for any photos or information about ;
William Chaplin Whittle born 1896 Hinckley
and his Brother Horace John Whittle born Jan 1898 Mickle Hill.

Their parents were ,
John Stanley Whittal and Emma Hopkins.

I have births and a marriage for both brothers so please don't waste your time on that.

My DNA results point to one of them as being my Grandfather and I'm trying to find photos or info which might narrow it down.

Any help will be much appreciated.
