I created a tree on the site that I call "Alice Powell of Jamestowne (U5)". I did it to keep track of all the threads. It started out with a mtDNA match to me, apparently tested by someone on the west coast (via Sorenson website). I traced it back to a Mary Walker in colonial Virginia, then pushed it back to Jamestown and beyond. There are probably quite a few mistakes, but I hope I traced it back to Mary Walker correctly. Anyway, a sister of Mary Walker, Cecilia, married a Sylvanus Stokes. They had several kids and the lineage is probably alive and well today. All females who have descended from Cecilia Walker-Stokes should have my U5 haplotype, at least at the HVR1+HVR2 level. Since that HVR1+HVR2 combination of mutations looks to be rather rare during the colonial era, there would be a good chance that I am connected to that tree in some way. HVR1: 16270T & 16519C. HVR2: 73G, 150T, 228A, 263G, 309.1C & 315.1C. My full genomic results gives a U5b2b2 haplotype, but I don't know whether this tree would come out that way. It sure would be great if a female descendant would have their DNA tested!
