|Dr. Donald Gradeless posts his ancestors on WIKITREE.COM as "JAMES ELDER (1712-1818), with daughter Agnes ELDER, found in Franklin Co PA.
Adds JAMES' father as ROBERT ELDER of PAXTANG ...
I posted my usual COMMENT on his WIKITREE entry:
"In our ELDER DNA project we have discovered that
"Robert ELDER d. 1746 of PAXTANG PA"
has descendants analyzed as Haplogroup "I-M223 = Isles, Scots, Viking, and divisions,"
which does not match Y-DNA from our "FRANKLIN CO PA" group,
now analyzed in "R1b1 and divisions, such as R-M269."
"So the 2 ELDER families cannot be related by the direct male (paternal) ELDER lines.
See the separated DNA categories in the ELDER YDNA RESULTS chart.
