Bio and Links
I have had several dna tests. Some from Family Tree Maker DNA, another test with Ancestry dna. The latest test (the Big Y, at FTDNA)put my ancestral homes proceeding backwards as; Georgia, South Carolina, Virginia, Connecticut, Massachusetts, England, Scotland, Wales, and 2300 years ago, Northern Germany.
I am an R1b1a2a1a2e, R-P312+, DF-88+, DF19+. My Ysearch id is BSTUQ, Family Tree DNA # 222038.

I am finding that my male ancestors were a fighting bunch. My direct line has participated in every war including the revolution. I have applied for membership in the Sons of Confederate Veterans, thanks to my 2nd great grandfather, who served with the 65th Georgia Volunteer Army of Tennessee. My 4th great grandfather served in the Revolutionary War. My father was in Korea, Vietnam, and I was in the cold war and Desert Shield/Storm. I am a retired US Navy Electronics Technician Chief Petty Officer, I was stationed in Guam on the USS Proteus AS-19, I was a Cryptographic Electronics Instructor at Combat Systems Technical Schools Command at Mare Island, Vallejo CA, I wintered over in McMurdo, Antarctica 86-87, and was stationed onboard the USS Peleliu LHA-5 during Desert Shield and Desert Storm.

RE: Daniel Green Gunn Sr
Hi Bill,
Thanks for getting in touch. According to my paternal grandfather, Charles Garrett Bradley (1870-1949), his parents were Joseph (1836-1876) and Susan Ann Gunn Bradley (1840-1898). Susan was the d/o of General Green (1806-1859) and Susan B. Fuller Gunn (1808-1892). Daniel Green Gunn (I have him with the middle name of Franklin) was her grandfather.

My grandfather seems to have been born before Joseph and Susan's marriage and was brought up by his paternal grandmother and widowed aunt. I have been taken to task by a Gunn descendant on Ancestry who questioned my grandfather's parentage; but, as I told her, he believed that Joseph and Susan A. Gunn Bradley were his parents, and until one of us female family genealogists can get a direct line male Bradley cousin to take a DNA test, we have no reason to doubt him. Are you by any chance on Ancestry, 23andMe, FTDNA or Gedmatch? I would be very interested in seeing if we're a match - as you said, if we share descent from Daniel Green Gunn, we should be close cousins.

All the best,

RE: Yoakum/Yocum/Yocom
Bill, the Yocum spelling you refer to below is for my great grandparents, I have newspaper clipping and a death certificate showing the spelling as Yocum rather than the yocam on the stone as you suggested.

Thanks, Steve

I am researching the Yocoms as they are related to me. I see that you denied my edit for the Yocam memorials. Do you have any paperwork that discusses these Yocum's/Yocam's?
I'm sure it's just a typo on the stone, but I have edited over 150 Yocum's that were in reality Yocoms, even the stone said Yocom, so I want to be sure of the spellings.
Any info you have that could shed light on this would be great.
Thanks for all you do for Find a Grave.

Bill - thanks for your message on the spelling (Yocum vs Yocom). What I think this comes down to is that the name evolved as the different lines of the family moved west. Personally I have seen this last name spelled as Jochem, Yoakum, Yocum, and Yocom. For names what I generally go with is what I have found on census or other records. In the case of the Yocum's around Coles county I have relied on census and military records, county histories, and correspondence with "Yocum" descendants (among others). Thanks again for your note!

Per your request I transferred all of the Yocom's to your. By the way, don't call me names again.
