This Achilles Acree who is listed white, lives near Major Acree. Which also the mulatto Achilles Acree live near Major Acree. There is never two Achilles listed at the same time. It appears the Federal census taker noted that Achilles Acree was a white man. The local town clerk noted each year on the register that Achilles Acree as a free Mulatto.

So another reseacher in 2002 also made the assumption that Achilles Acree had black ancestry.

Achilles Acree remained in Caroline County Virginia, his last two decades he lived as a pauper.

 

Acree DNA Project

DNA project

Charles Acree established the Acree Surname DNA Project at the Ancestry.com testing firm in August 2006 and have administered it since then.

The project currently has more than forty participants. All of them live in the U.S., with the exception of three U.K. participants. In December 2012 the project was established also at the Family Tree DNA (FTDNA) firm, providing an alternative testing environment.

Through a combination of DNA testing and genealogical research, the project has met its primary objectives – finding that most Acrees living in the U.S. descend from an early-18th-century immigrant with origins in the English-Scottish border area and that a substantial minority descend from an unrelated contemporary British immigrant with the surname Akers.

Any male bearer of the surname Acree or its above-mentioned variants is invited to participate. The project compares the unique Y-Chromosome (Y-STR) segments that fathers pass intact to their sons, which remain stable from generation to generation, with only minor, infrequent mutational changes. Females may participate by convincing an Acree-surnamed male relative (grandfather, father, brother, uncle, cousin or nephew) to provide the requisite DNA as a representative of her line.

Further details are provided on the project’s webpages, listed below.
