Anne Marie Chatterton married Hugh Thompson 12 Dec 1843, the same date that Hugh's sister Margaret was married to James Flowers.

Genetic Genealogy / DNA testing

My husband Michael John Stewart has tested his DNA at 23andMe. 

We would love for more people who are descendants of Hugh Thompson and Anne Marie Chatterton to test there as well so we can identify the segments of DNA that he has inherited from this couple.  

You can read my post  Why take an autosomal DNA Test? or jump right in and Order 23andMe DNA kits for the entire family. Each additional kit is now 20% off.
