McCune DNA Project

Looking for male McCune descendants of either John McCune Sr. (d. Bet  1 Jan- 23 Jun 1766 in Cumberland County, PA), Robert  McCune Sr. (d. 29 Aug 1816 in Cumberland County, PA),  or Judge James McCune (d.  Apr 1811 in Huntingdon County, PA) who would like to participate in a DNA project.  Our preliminary work has shown that it is possible that Judge James McCune and John McCune Sr. are related and we would like to expand our sample size to confirm this, and find out if there is any possible relation to Robert McCune.  You can get reduced prices for testing by signing up through the McCune Project at FamilyTreeDNA.  Email Sue at JSJSDTC@aol.com for more information.
