152RE: [bowesgenealogy] Re: New DNA report
- Apr 6, 2009
There was a Martin that matched at 25 with a genetic distance of 1 – I have corresponded with her and it is not a match – somewhere her family goes back to Ireland but it is very far back – they were in Alabama before the Civil War. She sent me the results of the Martin DNA project and it is not of any help.
So maybe I’ll have better luck with the others.
I'm waiting for those remaining markers to see how close the match is at 37. I'm also pulling some info together for you that I have about the other two. Interesting that you match them. In general, Springer's earliest known ancestor emigrated Barbados to Virginia I think, very early. Many Irish went to Barbados in the 1600s, many as slaves and other Catholic Irish just seeking opportunity. If I had to hypothesize (a risky business with this stuff), I think the little circumstantial info might suggest the latter. This Springer represents a "non-paternity event", genetically matching your surname, raised by another. I'd love to be copied on your emails, or at least post back here any conclusions you all draw or progress you make. Your Bowes match has been busy raising young children, so he may not get back right away, but I can fill in there too.
