HAPLOGROUP I1c -- DNA TEST KIT #28870 was SNP tested to establish the
exact haplogroup for GROUP 1 - desdendants of THOMAS GILLESPIE b. 1719
and wife NAOMI THOMPSON of Rowan Co. NC and COL. GEORGE GILLESPIE of
Limestone, Washington Co. TN. In October 2006 the results were
returned showing that the haplogroup is I1c. According to FTDNA, the
I1c lineage likely has its roots in northern France. Today it is found
most frequently within Viking / Scandinavian populations in Northwest
Europe and extends at low frequencies into Central and Eastern Europe.
Today another GILLESPIE has ordered a 37 marker DNA test kit. I'll let
you know the lineage for this kit as soon as I receive it.
