Some exciting DNA news for Middlesex Daniels!
A new Middlesex Daniel test has come in, kit 142779. The tester descends from :
Travis (d. 1805, md. Peggy Dillard)
Robert (d. 1782, md. Sarah Mickelborough)
Robert (d. 1781 md. Elizabeth Carter)
William Jr. (d. 1723, md.2 Mary Moseley)
Capt. William (d. 1698)
The fabulous news is that this test confirms our first branch marker mutation in the
Middlesex Daniel family. It's at marker #447: the modal for this marker is 22
(William Jr.'s other son Obediah shows a 22 and the tests for Robert (d. 1720, md.
Margaret Price) show a 22, i.e. the 22 goes across both William Jr. and Robert). But the
tests of this Travis (142779)and his brother Robert (119371) both show 23 at marker #447.
So the mutation occurred with at least their father Robert (d. 1782). If we can get a
test from an uncle to Travis and Robert, we can find out if the mutation actually occurred
in the previous generation (Robert d. 1781, md. Elizabeth Carter) or just at their son
Robert (d. 1782).
