Group 022

Group #22 has tested out by the FTDNA and Whit Athey's Haplogroup Predictor  as
"I1 (M253)"

"Adam" -> M168 -> M89 -> M170  -> M258  -> M253

 - Previously classified as "I1a" Family Tree DNA now classifies this group as "I-M253"

According to the population study by Rootsi, et. al. (2004), the I1 haplotype group is most dense in Norway, and the I haplotype group is most dense in the area of Croatia. (In 2004, the current I1 classification was I1a.) Population density is an indication of origins.

From Table 1 in the Rootsi paper, the I1a haplotype (
M253 - now I1 ) is most dense in Norway, South Sweden, Saami, North Sweden, Germany, Netherlands, and France (Low Normandy).


    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

Ancestor / Description

Timothy Hudson


tdhudson (at) outlook.com

descends from:

Reuben Ham (c1765 - aft 1806) married 1790 to Elizabeth Pendleton

William Ham (1801-1868) married Clarenda Seale (1811-1897)

Hillory Herbert Ham (1828-1889) married Samantha Elvyann Scarborough (1842-1922)

Mary T. Anna Ham (1867-1900) married William Pinckney Boatright (1857-1901)


Message: I would love to find documentation for the heirs of Reuben Ham who married Elizabeth Pendleton in Culpeper County, VA in 1790. He may have moved to Elbert County, GA about 1810 and died there.

dfh NOTE: 
This Y-DNA (I1-M253) conflicts with Josh Ham (I1-M223) in Group 7, who has documentation of descent.

Timothy's male (Y-DNA) information at FTDNA states descent from:
Joseph C. Hudson, b. 1800 and d. 1852

Since he does not match anybody in the project to date, I can only presume that his HAM line is via a female in his line. That is, the Y-DNA applies to his HUDSON line.
