DNA Research Update

Here’s an update on genetic genealogy research of the “Sons of William Taylor Sr” as listed in my earlier posting. Names/identities of living individuals have been altered/masked for obvious privacy reasons. If you have a connection with any of these families I would encourage you to contact me to exchange information.

SONS OF WILLIAM TAYLOR SR. (1729-1820)

John Taylor Sr. 1763-1815
Haplogroup G (HpG) established by yDNA testing of living descendant whose tree is published on Ancestry.com

Barzilla Taylor 1768-1828
Haplogroup G (HpG) established by yDNA testing of two living descendants (and one deceased). Two trees are published on Ancestry.com

Joseph Taylor 1772-1838
Two auDNA matches on Ancestry.com with trees. I was just contacted by a descendant who plans a yDNA test. This line is of special interest to me because some of the descendants migrated to Navarro County Texas where my Taylor family also ended up … so far I can’t connect the two lines as having ever known each other.

Samuel Taylor Sr. 1776-1820
One auDNA match on Ancestry.com …. However, there are some questions about the tree. NOTE…. Since the posting of this article, I have been contacted by a gentlemen who traces his ancestry to Samuel Taylor Sr. His FTDNA kit is being processed so we should know the results before the end of April.

William Taylor Jr. 1778-1845
One auDNA match on Ancestry.com …. However, there are some questions about the tree. A yDNA match is much-needed here.

George Taylor 1780 – no information available

Henry H. Taylor 1780-1835
Haplogroup G (HpG) established by yDNA testing of living descendant; unfortunately no tree (or further information) is available yet.
Also an auDNA match on Ancestry.com with a published tree.

Drury Taylor 1788-1845
This is my patriline. Haplogroup G (HpG) established by yDNA testing of living descendant whose tree is published on Ancestry.com
Also two promising auDNA matches on Ancestry.com whose trees are published.

James Taylor 1790-1871
This one may remain genetically unproved since his only two sons who lived to adulthood
only had daughters! There is still a very remote chance that an auDNA match could
occur from James Taylor’s female descendants.
