Historian to discuss secret son of Cashiers founder

Written by 

Local historian Jane Nardy will lead a presentation on the secret child of Mordecai Zachary at 5:30 p.m. Friday, April 26, at the Cashiers-Glenville Recreation Center.

The Cashiers historian, Nardy will deliver a presentation on the secret son of Cashiers’ founding father Mordecai Zachary. While Nardy has been conducting extensive research on the Zachary lineage for the past 30 years, she said that it wasn’t until two-and-a-half years ago that someone suggested using DNA testing to trace the ancestry. Following the suggestion, DNA swabs were submitted so that she and the Zachary family could further trace the surname back to its earliest settlers, but what came back was much more surprising.
