My mother DNA tested at AncestryDNA and I have viewer rights to a number of my Cook / Putman cousins match list there as well. Mom's test helps to sort matches so that I know if they don't match her they are thru my Dad. I sort Dad's lines into Cooke / King and Jakes / Frizzell. I can further sort within each group. We have a group of matches who are the descendants of John Hight and Eleanor Nichols. These matches are shared with my Cook / Putman cousins. Several of their descendants were already in my tree as they are kin to some of my Putman cousins but not thru the sibling of the Putman I match.
A number of these Hights were in the area of Bedford County where my W. C. Cook(2nd Gr Grandfather) lived and one among the purchasers from the estate of Joseph S Cook.(W.C. was admin of that estate but we do not know WC's connection to Joseph) Many times the movement of our ancestors occurs because of their desire to own land. Some of John & Eleanor's descendants moved to Johnson County Illinois. Illinois uses the public land survey system(think grids) and because of this I can use HistoryGeo's First Landowners Project to look at Johnson Co. IL to see if I can find any of the Hights. A visual reference can be very helpful.
