Many descendants of Old Settlers of the Southeast are finding unusual components of their DNA such as Middle Eastern, Iberian, Mediterranean or even Caucausus, Greek, Italian or Turkish. Some members of the Cherokee Nation also find these unusual portions of DNA. Anyone who want to know their origins needs to do a DNA test, in order to cut through myth, and see how their DNA fits into the history of the southeast, which has undergone a shift of understanding, thanks to Richard Thornton and Mary Rae whose book The Apalache Chronicles takes a fresh look at the people who lived in the southeast before the British settlers. The Apalache Indians lived in both Florida and in the mountains which bear their name. This group of Native Americans had a complex civilization which has largely been ignored, constructing complex rock terraces in the mountains as possible protection from flooding causes by natural events. Their farms included advanced cultivation using terraces. Evidence suggests that some European groups lived near or with them, some of whom migrated inward from the coastal Carolinas. The history helps to explain the unusual DNA found in the mountains and Piedmont. I also recommend Richard and Mary's book Nodoroc and the Bohurans, which deals with the complexities of the Creek Indians, the Cherokee Indians as well as early Spanish, French, British, Sephardic Jewish and Portuguese settlers of the area. Highly recommend this important work. Andrew Ayers Martin, M.D., J.D.
