      Project Results:
      Participants should also post their DNA results and list their
      earliest know ancestor at www.ysearch.org where they can be compared
      with participants from other DNA testing companies.

      DNA test kit #28870 - Haplogroup I indicates an ancient ancestor in
      Northwestern Europe and common with Viking populations.

      Richard Gillespie was the first male GILLESPIE to submit his DNA for
      this project - kit #28870. He is the co-administrator of this
      project, and a 5th great-grandson of THOMAS GILLESPIE, b. 1719 and
      his wife NAOMI THOMPSON who both died on Dec. 12, 1797 and are
      buried together at Thyatira Cemetery in Rowan Co. North Carolina.

      Generations:
      #1 THOMAS GILLESPIE b.1719 and NAOMI THOMPSON
      #2 GEORGE GILLESPIE b.7-22-1751 (granduncle of U.S. Pres. James Knox
      Polk) married MARY GRAHAM
      #3 GEORGE GILLESPIE b.7-2-1787 and MARTHA MORGAN (niece of Gov.
      William Hall, Tennessee)
      #4 J0HN MORGAN GILLESPIE b.5-2-1811 and NEOMA THOMPSON GILLESPIE b.8-
      16-1811(1st cousins who married - NEOMA is a sister of JOHN L.
      GILLESPIE from DNA kit #46283)
      #5 SAMUEL HOUSE GILLESPIE b.9-1-1845


      DNA test kit #46283 - Haplogroup I indicates an ancient ancestor in
      Northwestern Europe and common with Viking populations.

      Generations:
      #1 THOMAS GILLESPIE b.1719 and NAOMI THOMPSON
      #2 GEORGE GILLESPIE b.7-22-1751 (granduncle of U.S. Pres. James Knox
      Polk) married MARY GRAHAM
      #3 THOMAS L. GILLESPIE b.12-24-1775 and CATHERINE BEARD
      #4 JOHN L. GILLESPIE b. bet.1811-1814
      #5 THOMAS ADDISON GILLESPIE b.1846

      DNA kits #28870 and #46283 are both 5th great-grandsons of THOMAS
      GILLESPIE and NAOMI THOMPSON. They are 4th cousins to each other.
      These two kits are an exact 37/37 marker match and the testing was
      done to confirm the haplotype for this GILLESPIE line. Nice to know
      that the marriage of 1st cousins in kit #28870 had no effect on the
      DNA :-)

      Kit #28870 and #46283 match 37/37 to each other and 36/37 to a QUINN
      of Ireland. There were QUINNS in the area of GILLESPIES during the
      U.S. colonial era, but these two lines have no known connection in
      the U.S.

      DNA test kit #40964 -- Haplogroup I indicates an ancient ancestor in
      Northwestern Europe and common with Viking populations.

      Kit #40964 is a descendant of JOHN W. GILLESPIE b. @1824, married 3-
      17-1846 in Washington Co. Tennessee.

      Kit #40964 was a surprise 35/37 DNA match to Richard Gillespie DNA
      test kit #38870 and DNA test kit #46283. JOHN W. was an orphan, so
      his connection to THOMAS GILLESPIE and NAOMI THOMPSON has not been
      established, but we are now working to find the paper trail.

      Kit #40964 matches kits #28870 and #46283 35/37, and matches 34/37
      to a QUINN of Ireland.
      -------------------------------------------------


      April 24, 2006 Kit #56315 and #45471 match 11/12, 22/24 and 34/37.
      Haplogroup I indicates an ancient ancestor in Northwestern Europe
      and common with Viking populations.

      is the most common in European populations.

      #30367 is the descendant of WILLIAM GILLESPIE b. 1750 in Sterling,
      Scotland and d. 1802. His wife was MARY HOLCOMB.
      -------------------------------------------------

      DNA test kit #32917 -- April 24, 2006 -- No close DNA matches have

      Carolina. This line also resided in Spartanburg Co. and Pickens Co.
      South Carolina.

      been found with GILLESPIE DNA PROJECT participants. Haplogroup R1b1
      is the most common in European populations.

      DNA test kit #52171 -- April 24, 2006 -- No close DNA matches have
      been found with GILLESPIE DNA PROJECT participants. Haplogroup R1b1
      is the most common in European populations.

      Kit #52171 has matched closely with participants in the CLAN
      CAMPBELL DNA PROJECT, coming very close to the modal haplotype for
      CAMPBELL. Kit #52171 has also joined the CAMPBELL DNA PROJECT. This
      GILLESPIE line needs to test another distant male to confirm the
      results.

      Kit #52171 matches with CAMPBELL DNA participants:
      35/37 matches to 2 participants
      34/37 matches to 4 participants
      33/37 matches to 5 participants

      Kit #52171 descends from DANIEL GILLESPIE b. Ireland. DANIEL lived
      in Franklin Co. Virginia by 1787. There are no known connections of
      this GILLESPIE line with any CAMPBELLS while in the U.S.

      #2 THOMAS JEFFERSON GILLASPIE and wife ANNA MARIE KERSEY.
      #3 DAVID MADISON GILLASPIE


      DNA test kit #56177 is also a descendant of ANDREW GILLASPIE.


      April 24, 2006 New test results show the following matches for kits
      #38866, #42905, #56177:

      These participants are known cousins and tested 3 members to confirm
      the halplotype for their GILLESPIE line.

      37 marker match results for these three cousins:

      Kit #38866 and #42905 -- 11/12, 23/25, 34/37
      Kit #38866 and #56177 -- 11/12, 23/25, 34/37
      Kit #56177 and #42985 -- 12/12, 25/25, 37/37

      FTDNA is double checking the results of Kit #38866, since that kit
      is a genetic distance of 3 to Kit #43905 and #56177.
