Luckey Surname DNA Project
The primary goal of this project is to develop a Y-DNA database of Luckey family members that will provide scientific evidence for male kinship identification. The intent of this project is not to limit the research to one geographical region, but to accept all those who share our name.
(I) Known Luckey immigration to the U.S. early 1700's:
1. Robert Luckey Sr. birth date: approx. 1666, Londonderry Ireland ? He married Isabel Baird, date unknown. His will dated 13, Apr. 1754 list: wife Isabel, children: Hugh, John, Andrew, James, Sarah, Jane, Ann, Isabel, Mary, Agnes, Samuel and Robert. Will probated, 21, Nov. 1757 at Martic Township, Lancaster Co. PA.
There is a lot of discussion and questions on the web concerning this Robert Luckey Sr. I have not been able to find any bit of written evidence to link all of these speculations together other than a couple of generations. It appears many of the children of Robert & Isabel traveled from PA. down "The Great Wagon Road" south into, Virigina, North Carolina, Tenn. and Kentucky.
I would hope that with Y-DNA testing a pattern would develop that would allow us to combine our numerous bits of paperwork into a common history.
Anyone else that has another know migration of Luckey's or variations from Europe to other parts of the world, I will be glad to add it to this list. As I mentioned earlier we will not limit this project to one geographical region.
