Looking for Farishes living in Cumbria England, or Dumfries, Scotland.

I'm looking for "Farish" descendants living in Dumfries, Scotland and Cumbria, England to do a "DNA" test with me. I am a Farish descendant living in the United States. I've run into a wall looking for the ancestors of Robert Farish born about 1684 in Cumberland, England. He immigrated to America (Virginia) in about 1714. He had two sons: Robert and John who were also born in England. There are many Farish family trees on the internet, listing these people, but no one has provided any documented proof as to where they lived or who their ancestors were. Some say they came from Whitehall, Cumberland, England, and some say they came from Broom Park, England, but no one knows for certain. If Robert Farish came from the Broom Park area, then his ancestry can be traced to Farishes living in Scotland during the 1500's.


This could be a really exciting undertaking for anyone who is willing. The DNA test is described on rootsweb.com in case you want to read about it.

Thanks,

Crystal Farish
