A *FREE* mtDNA test is available to Project Participant #3!

 

The purpose of "Dorcas (-) Andrews & Umbilical Descendants" Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) Project is to develop a genetic "mtDNA signature" for Dorcas (-) Andrews based on mtDNA test results from multiple umbilical descendants.  By comparing mtDNA from known umbilical descendants of Dorcas with mtDNA from her probable or possible umbilical descendants, we can confirm or refute theoretical or ambiguous lines of descent that have been developed through conventional genealogical research using indirect evidence. Note that Dorcas (-) Andrews, wife of James2 Andrews (Samuel1), is frequently-but incorrectly-identified as a daughter of Michael1 and Elizabeth (Cleeve) Mitton. It was actually Sarah2 Mitton (Michael1) who married James3 Andrews (James2, Samuel1).

 

Project Results

 

  • Unfortunately, the mtDNA of Project Participant #1, a probable umbilical descendant of Dorcas (-) Andrews, and the mtDNA of Project Participant #2, a possible descendant of Dorcas (-) Andrews, do not match.
  • Thus, we need at least one more Project Participant to confirm if either the probable or possible umbilical descendant of Dorcas (-) Andrews (or neither!) is a biological descendant of Dorcas. A *FREE* Mitochondrial DNA test is available to the first candidate qualified to become Project Participant #3!

 

Umbilical descendants of Dorcas (-) Andrews, wife of James2 Andrews (Samuel1), include the following:

 

  • Rebecca3 (Andrews) Adams, wife of Jonathan2 Adams (Nathaniel1)
    • Rebecca3 (Adams) Snelling, wife of Joseph2 Snelling (John1)
      • Mary3 (Snelling) Crouch, wife of Joseph Crouch
        • Multiple generations
          • Project Participant #1-a probable umbilical descendant of Mary (Snelling) Crouch
    • Mary3 (Adams) (Vial) Weare, wife of John3 Vial (John2-1) and Daniel2 Weare (Peter1)
    • Dorcas3 (Adams) (Fisher) Demont, wife of John Fisher and John2 Demont/Dimond (John1)
    • Lydia3 (Adams) Larrabee, wife of William3 Larrabee (Stephen2-1)
  • Dorcas3 (Andrews) Davenport, wife of Ebenezer2 Davenport (Thomas1)
    • Mary3 (Davenport) Brooks, wife of Richard2 Brooks (Richard1)
    • Tabitha3 (Davenport) Cocks, wife of John2 Cocks (John1)
    • Esther3 (Davenport) Hobbs, wife of Josiah2 Hobbs (Josiah1)
      • Mary3 (Hobbs) Parks, wife of Ephraim Parks
        • Multiple generations
          • Project Participant #2-a possible umbilical descendant of Mary (Hobbs) Parks
          • Project Participant #3-any umbilical descendant of Dorcas (-) Andrews is eligible for a *FREE* mtDNA test but another umbilical descendant of Mary (Hobbs) Parks is strongly preferred!
    • Thankful3 (Davenport) Cocks, wife of Ebenezer2 Cocks
  • Jane3 (Andrews) (Alger) Davis, wife of Andrew2 Alger (Andrew1) and Robert2 Davis
    • Dorcas3 (Alger) Collins, wife of Matthew2 Collins (Matthew1)
      • Dorcas3 (Collins) Gallop, wife of Nathaniel4 Gallop (Benjamin3, Nathaniel2, John1)
    • Mary3 (Davis) Barnes, wife of William Barnes
      • Mary (Barnes) Jones, wife of John Jones
        • Katherine Jones
