Haplogroup K

No matches yet.

Haplogroup R1 and R1a

The matches in this group have not provided pedigrees.

Haplogroup R1b

* Group 1 earliest ancestor, William Mitchell b. ca.1748 VA d. 1819 Franklin Co. GA

This group all trace back to a single common ancestor, so now their task is to move further back in their research to learn William Mitchell's origins, and of course, to encourage others to test in hopes of finding more matches and more clues.

* Group 2 earliest ancestor, Amelia Co. VA 1780s

This group of matches has some good indication based on their results that two of their early ancestors may have been brothers or cousins: James Mitchell b. ca. 1772 Amelia Co. (his decendents went to Prince Edward Co. VA) and John Mitchell 1783 Amelia Co. (his descendents went to Montgomery Co. VA). More research is needed into this connection. The other match is in Union Co. SC.

* Group 3 earliest ancestor, John Mitchell, b. ca. 1699 m. Rebecca Ackley d. ca. 1767 Colchester, CT. Both members of this group trace back to the same man. They are hoping to move back even further and find a match in early New England or in Great Britain.

* Group 3.5 earliest ancestor unknown. One match traces back to William Allen Mitchell b. ca. 1836 VA d. Fayette Co. PA; while the other goes back to Jonathan C. Mitchell b. 1821 TN d. 1884 Newton Co. MO. One of the lineages is complicated by a potential name change or other irregularity. More traditional genealogical research is needed, both to extend the individual pedigrees back further, and also to identify where the DNA connection takes place.

* Group 4 earliest ancestor, John Mitchell b ca. 1738 d. 1767 Lancaster, PA. The other match was from a Daniel Mitchell b. ca. 1781 Bedford Co. VA. These matches have not located their common link.

* Group 5 earliest ancestor, Capt. William Mitchell of Chichester, Sussex, England d. 1658 prob. Anne Arundel Co. MD. Others in this group of matches go back to Warren Co. KY, Edcomb Co. SC, and Wilkes Co. NC but don't know exactly how they connect up to Capt. William Mitchell. Testing male Mitchells who go back to Sussex, England would be a good next step for this group.

* Group 7 earliest ancestor, Isaac Mitchell b. ca. 1717-1727 m. Sarah Elizabeth Hickman d. 1778-1783 VA. Son, Isaac Jr. lived in Northumberland Co. VA, before moving to Logan Co. KY and Mason Co. IL . Both members of this group trace back to Isaac. More matches are hoped for so that this group can go forward.

* Group 8 earliest ancestor, Henry Mitchell, early 1700s, Surry and Sussex Cos. VA. Possible earlier ancestor, Matthew Mitchell b. 1590 Halifax, England. More testing is needed to prove this. This group has many members who need to test beyond 12 or 25 markers to prove their relationship, as they share a very common haplotype.

* Group 10 earliest ancestor, Thomas Mitchell b. ca. 1783 VA d. aft. 1850 Greene Co. TN. Two of this group trace back to Thomas Mitchell of Greene Co. TN. Another match goes to Hiram Mitchell (b. TN, lived Bibb Co. AL, Sabine Parish, LA) and the other goes to John Q. Mitchell, b. NC, lived AR. Both of these probably connect to Thomas Mitchell's family earlier in VA. More research is needed.

* Group 11 earliest ancestor, Ransom Mitchell b. 1771 GA d. 1847 AL

* Group 12 earliest ancestor, Experience Mitchell b. 1609 London, England, fl. 1623 Plymouth, MA d. ca. 1689 Duxbury, MA. The other matches in this group go to a Calvary Mitchell in Providence, RI and a Noah Mitchell in North Gwillimbury, York, Ontario. More research needs to be done to connect these lines. Also, male Mitchells in England are needed to test against to confirm the line in England.

* Group 15 earliest ancestor, John Mitchell b. 1750 Ireland d. Chatham Co. NC. The other match is also found in North Carolina, William Mitchell b. ca. 1770 md. in 1790 in Franklin or Nash Co. NC d. Wilson Co. TN. These 3 North Carolina counties are located in close proximity so these kits may have a good chance of making their connection to one another in NC with more research. Another avenue of research to explore is to find Irish Mitchells to test in hopes of finding a hometown in Ireland for John Mitchell above.

* Group 19 earliest ancestor, William Mitchell b. ca. 1737 VA? d. 1795 Caswell Co. NC. The other match goes to a Frederick Mitchell b. ca. 1808 Prince Edward Co. VA d. Union Co. OR. Research is ongoing in Prince Edward County and elsewhere trying to find Frederick's parents and a connection to William Mitchell.

* Group 20 earliest ancestor, Thomas L. Mitchell b. 1805 NC md. Elizabeth Roberts.

* Group 21 earliest ancestor, Rev. Morris Mitchell b. 1762 Montgomery Co. MD d. Polk Co. MO. As both persons in this group descend from the same person, they need to recruit others to join our group, and continue to push back the line to Europe!
