DNA Update

Here is my latest update on the branches of my family tree that I have confirmed with DNA.
The lastest confirmation was a small match to another descendant of my 4x Great Grandparents William  Garbett, Born 12 Jun 1796, Little Wenlock,Shropshire,England; Married Elizabeth Powell Born 3 Sep 1786 Dawley, Shropshire, England on 12 October 1818. 
Elizabeth had been previously married, and widowed. Her first husband was John Sandlands , who she married in 1808 and had at least 3 children to before he died in 1817
They were:
Robert Sandlands b 1810,
Ann Sandlands b 1812 and
John Sandlands born 1814


Elizabeth and William had 7 children together. 
William Garbett b.1819-1898
Michael Garbett b1821-1898
George Robert Sandlands Garbett 1823-1899
John Garbett 1825-1900
Elizabeth 1827-1844
Samuel 1829-1875
Mary Ann 1831-

I descend from Samuel Garbett  and my match descends from George Robert Sandlands Garbett 
George Robert Garbett joined the Mormon church and emigrated to America .
Samuel Garbett followed his fathers lead and became a miner, eventually rising to become a Chartermaster.

This DNA match is very small and without being able to investigate further I am taking it at face value - however I hope my match will upload their DNA to Gedmatch so we can look further into the DNA and find some common matches 

Based on this last match I have now confirmed 7 out of 8 Great Grandparents and 10 out of 16 GG Grandparents. - Not bad going!!
