South Carolina Goodwins: 

Gladys Parker had her brother, John Goodwin Y-DNA tested out to 67 markers. He came back as a 67/67 and 65/67 match to 2 other Goodwins and was placed into Group 1 of the Goodwin DNA Surname Project. Gladys has only been able to trace back as far as Samuel Goodwin, born 1 May 1785 in SC, d. 14 Feb 1872 Brightsville, Marlboro Co., SC. She would like to find out who Samuel Goodwin's parents were. She does not yet know her connection to the other 2 matches in Group 1 in the project. 

** Update ** -- In the Fall of 2015, Gladys had a man she suspected was related to her line (P. T. Goodwin) Y-DNA tested out to 67 markers. He came back as a 65/67 match to Gladys' brother John and to one other match and a 64/ 67 match to the other member of Group 1 Goodwins. The differences occurred on fast-moving markers that mutate faster than the others. 

P. T. Goodwin's family has been traced back to John Goodwin, b. 1738 and d. 1809 in Kershaw Co., SC.  Because there is such a close match in the Y-DNA results, it is probable that Glady's ancestor, Samuel Goodwin, b. 1785 SC is descended from P. T. Goodwin's ancestor, John Goodwin, b. 1738, d. 1809. In John Goodwin's will, he mentioned "oldest son, Samuel" who very likely was Gladys' ancestor Samuel Goodwin. Family Finder results also confirmed the match between Gladys and her brother and P. T. Goodwin.

We are looking for additional descendants from John Goodwin's line to test for comparison. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for details.
