Here is a more detailed paternal line of our project member, Kit# 68080's paternal line. This project is interested in finding a willing participant to test yDNA from the line of Joshua Prichard, of SC, who migrated to GA. It may be that William Pritchard/Prichard of Clarke Co., GA was a nephew of Joshua Prichard. This is just a working theory, but yDNA testing can help connect this paternal line to the Joshua Prichard line if there is a match. You must be a direct male descendant of Joshua Prichard with the Prichard or Pritchard surname.
