The answer to the first question appears to be yes.
Joe Pete Quarterman of the Camden County group is an exact match at 12 markers
for two Midway Quartermans.
Are they related to the Liberty County Quartermans somewhere back in England?
If so, how far back, and where in England?
As to how far back the two families are related, FamilyTreeDNA says
the probability of a common ancestor within the last
Joe Pete and jsq both know our genealogy back eight generations
(to Robert Quarterman in South Carolina, and to Ralfe Quatermaine
in Oxfordshire, respectively), so the connection was before that.
But if this table of probabilities is correct, probably not much before that.
|4 generations is||33.57|
|8 generations is||55.88|
|12 generations is||70.69|
|16 generations is||80.53|
|20 generations is||87.07|
|24 generations is||91.41|
