Re: Documented Ancestry of June Carter Cash

The information that is currently known seems to indicate that their direct paternal line connection was back in Europe -- before Europeans migrated to the New World (America). Both Carter families are variants of Y-DNA "R1b1".


Selected examples:


(June Carter-Cash family)
Barford: R1b1 (Group 2)
52334 Capt Thos 1630 UK R1b1 13 23 14 11 11 11 12 12 12 13 14 29 18 9 10 11 11 25 14 18 29 15 15 16 18 11 10 19 23 16 15 17 17 34 39 13 12


(President Jimmy Carter family)
Isle of Wight: R1b1b2 (Group 4)
189663 Thomas 1648 VA R1b1b2 13 24 14 11 11 14 12 12 10 13 13 29 17 9 10 11 11 25 15 20 28 15 15 17 18 11 11 19 22 15 15 19 17 37 38 11 12



According to Wikipedia,


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haplogroup_R1b1_(Y-DNA)


"T. Karafet et al. estimated the age of R1, the parent of R1b, as 18,500 years before present."


So the Y-DNA indicates that most likely their direct paternal line connection was at some point between 18,500 years ago and the year 1630 (381 years ago). Does that help?


Why are you interested in the relationship between June Carter-Cash and President Jimmy Carter?


And Elvis Presley and Hank Williams, Sr. ??
