Marilyn, I see you have mentioned Mrs. Naylor's 1805 Obituary. We have been trying to identify her and her husband for some time now. We are from Amwell NJ, and believe Mr. and Mrs. Naylor are our ancestors. A longer version of that obituary says that Mrs. Naylor's husband died in Braddock's expedition in 1775.

We believe he may have served with Capt. Dagworthy and/or Capt. Nathaniel Ware. Dagworthy and Ware are originally from New Jersey. Dagworthy owned property in Amwell NJ. Dagworthy was with Braddock in his fateful defeat near Fort Duquesne. Three Naylors who served with Dagworthy where paid back wages in 1762. They are Benjamin, who died later in the French and INdian War, Joshua, and George. We think there may have been a fourth Naylor (brother?) who died in Braddock's expedition. Perhaps a James or a John?

There are three of us who got our male Naylor relatives to have their DNA tested with Family Tree DNA, and we have learned we are related.

I am from Pennsylvania, my cousins are from New Jersey and Alabama (by way of Georgia.) We think we might have common Naylor ancestors in Maryland, but as of yet cannot make the connection.

Perhaps we are connected to the same Naylor family. What do you think?
