My 4th Great-Grandparent AncestryDNA ThruLines Matches

 I wrote Dear Randy – How Many DNA Matches From Your 3rd Great-Grandparents Do You Have by ThruLines in AncestryDNA? final week and threatened to do the identical for my 4th great-grandparents.

To summarize up to now, I’ve:

*  0 AncestryDNA ThruLines from my mother and father, Frederick Walton Seaver and Betty Virginia Carringer.

*  2 AncestryDNA ThruLines from my 2 units of grandparents, Frederick Walton Seaver and Alma Bessie Richmond.

*  12 AncestryDNA ThruLines from my 4 units of great-grandparents, all from Thomas Richmond and Julia E. White.

*  16 AncestryDNA ThruLines from my 8 units of 2nd great-grandparents, together with:

** 6 from James Richman and Hannah Wealthy
** 1 from Henry White and Amy Oatley
** 1 from David Auble and Sarah Knapp
** 8 from James Kemp and Mary Jane Sovereen

*  119 from my 16 units of third great-grandparents (listed within the Expensive Randy publish).

*  The 32 units of 4th great-grandparents have the next variety of AncestryDNA ThruLine matches for the listed frequent ancestors:

** Benjamin Seaver/Martha Whitney – 4 matches

** Nathan Gates/Abigail Knowlton – 7 matches
** Aaron Smith/Mercy Plimpton – 5 matches

** Stephen Cutter/Tabitha Randolph – 10 matches
** John Kemp/Mary Dafoe – 14 matches
** Frederick Sovereen/Mary Jane Hutchinson – 2 matches
** John Putman/Sarah Martin – 3 matches

NOTE 1:  The numbers for every 4th great-grandparent couple don’t embody the matches from the opposite great-grandparent teams.

NOTE 2:  The “potential frequent ancestors” that AncestryDNA gives are in [square brackets], and aren’t in my RootsMagic or on-line household timber.  The “deduced frequent ancestors” that AncestryDNA reveals are in {curly brackets}.  I observe that there aren’t any DNA matches for the “potential frequent ancestors.”  “Deduced frequent ancestors” implies that I’ve included these ancestors in my RootsMagic and on-line household timber primarily based on DNA match outcomes.

The variety of ThruLines on my father’s (Seaver/Richmond) aspect is 44.  The variety of ThruLines on my mom’s (Carringer/Auble) aspect is 93.

So the entire for my AncestryDNA ThruLines for my 4th great-grandparents as frequent ancestors is 137.  So that’s 270 ThruLine matches from my mother and father all the way down to my 4th great-grandparents.

Now for the fifth great-grandparents in one other publish.
