That John Stroud was the grandfather of Archibald STROUD seems certain.25 

y-DNA, which is passed virtually unchanged from father to son has shown that an
Archibald STROUD descendant is an exact 34/34 match with the modal haplotype of the
BURTON family.  This BURTON family itself is an exact match with the HATCHER family.
The BURTON-HATCHER relationship is believed to have happened in the 1600s in the
Chesterfield and Henrico Counties, Virginia area when a HATCHER male had a son by a
BURTON female that then went by the surname BURTON.

For Archibald STROUD to match the BURTON-HATCHER DNA, a male BURTON or HATCHER would
have had a son by a female STROUD, that the child went by STROUD. Another possibility
is that a BURTON or HATCHER child was raised by a STROUD family, and adopted the name
STROUD. A DNA test of a descendant of John STROUD through his son Willis does not match
with Archibald. 

Because of that, it is believed that Archibald's mother Lucinda was the daughter "Lucy"
STROUD named in the 1776 will of John STROUD.  There were no known HATCHER families
in Mecklenburg County when Archibald was born, but there were several BURTONs. Given that
fact, and that Archibald gave his eldest son the middle name Burton, Archibald's biological
father is believed to be a BURTON.

Under 21 in #8 in 1777. b) Lucy, Jesse, John not named in #8, so over 21 in 1777. c) Joseph first appeared as age 21+ in the 1787 Mecklenburg Co. tax list. d) Willis in household of Nathaniel Moss in 1787 Mecklenburg Co. tax list as age 16-21. e) Mary Ann, Edward, and Ruth/(Elizabeth?) placed between dates established for Wm. in a) and Joseph in c). f) The dates arrived at above are compatible with the known birth of their mother, and normal child-bearing years. 10.
