      Daniel Henry Britt, a descendant of Simon Britt [1813-1860] from Robeson County, NC tested 67 markers and has matched a number of Britt families including one that descends from Joseph Britt, Sr. [bef 1755 ? bef 1810 Moore County, NC]. Joseph and at least five of his sons migrated from Wake County to Moore County prior to 1800. All Britt families descending from the Moore County/Montgomery County Britts descend from Joseph Sr. The DNA match confirms that the Britt famiies of Moore/Montgomery counties and the Britt families of Robeson County descend from the same Britt families that were originally from Virginia and moved down into North Carolina settling in the Edgecombe County area before migrating on to Johnston and Wake counties.
