Group 008

Group #8 has estimated by  FTDNA, and Whit Athey's Haplogroup Predictor  as "R-M269 / R-S856 (was R1b1a2)"

   (perhaps looks like?)  "Adam" -> M168 -> M89 -> M9 -> M45 ->M173-> R-P297 -> R-M269 -> R-L23 -> R-L51 -> R-P310 -> R-L151 -> R-P312 -> R-Z290 -> R-L21 -> R-S552 -> R-DF13 -> R-ZZ10_1 -> R-Z253 -> R-S844 -> R-A22 -> R-S856 -> R-FT89012 -> R-BY162266 -> R-FT222321 -> R-FT268403

ISOGG Y-DNA Haplogroup Tree


    Haplotype Groups were re-classified by Family Tree DNA in March, 2011. 
This affected the following existing groups:

    R1b1b2 became    R1b1a2
    I2b          became     I2b1

    Haplotype Groups were re-classified by Family Tree DNA in May, 2008. 
This affected the following existing groups:

    R1b1c became    R1b1b2
    I1a       became     I1
    I1b       became     I
    I1c       became     I2b
    E3b1a  became   E1b1b1

descends from:

WILLIAM HAM was born in 1821 in Georgia. Died ABT 1868 in Louisiana.
  William married Francis Cornelia HASTY.  Francis was born in Georgia.

Absalom Cason HAM was born on 4 Dec 1858 in Louisiana and died on 17 Oct 1940 at age 81. Absalom married Amyrintha Pallie GRESHAM

Clinton Cason HAMM was born on 20 Nov 1903 in Farmerville, Louisiana and died 27 Apr 1992 in Louisiana. Clinton married Annie Belle KELLY.


Chad Boone and mother Barbara Boone Terrell

descends from:

Calvin Watson Boone born abt. 1811 Georgia or Alabama, and migrated by 1840 to Hardin Co. Tennessee.  d. aft 1850 in McNairy Co., Tennessee.
    Calvin married Mary HAMM  b. abt 1816 in Virginia

Chad writes:

"DNA results indicate I do not match the Boone family of pioneer Daniel Boones family. DNA matches seem to lead that I probably/ may come from the Isle of Wight Co. Virginia Boones."

So, the Y-DNA is for the BOONE surname.

(Genetic Distance of 10 on 37 markers to kit 126xxx equates to 1350 years according to McGee's Utility)

Chad (or Barbara) has no further information about Mary HAMM, but does have descendants. They are looking for the parents of both Calvin BOONE and Mary HAMM.
