Gillespie DNA Project -- GROUP 1
Posted by: Connie McKenzie (ID *****3835) Date: April 06, 2007 at 17:26:49

Please contact Gillespie DNA Project Administrator Connie McKenzie directly at lairdkinna@yahoo.com for information about the project. The GILLESPIE lines posted here are not related to any other DNA groups in the project.

GROUP #1 -- 5 DNA KITS -- DESCENDANTS OF THOMAS GILLESPIE & NAOMI THOMPSON of Rowan Co. NC and Col. GEORGE GILLESPIE of Limestone, Washington Co. TN -- Common ancestor of these two groups has not been established:
Kit #28870, #46283, #40964, #46278, 64340 and 74732.


HAPLOGROUP I1c DNA TEST KIT #28870 was SNP tested to establish the exact haplogroup for GROUP 1. In October 2006 the results were returned showing that the haplogroup is I1c. According to FTDNA, the I1c lineage likely has its roots in northern France. Today it is found most frequently within Viking / Scandinavian populations in Northwest Europe and extends at low frequencies into Central and Eastern Europe.

DNA KITS #28870, #46283 and #46278 are known descendants of THOMAS GILLESPIE and NAOMI THOMPSON.

DNA KIT #40964 descends from an orphan in the early 1800's who lived in the area of Col. GEORGE GILLESPIE of Limestone, Washington Co. TN and does not know how he connects to the family of THOMAS and NAOMI or Col. GEORGE GILLESPIE.

DNA KIT #64340 is a descendant of Col. GEORGE GILLESPIE of Limestone, Washington Co. TN.

As of Aug. 2006, the common ancestor of THOMAS GILLESPIE and Col. GEORGE GILLESPIE has not been determined. However, there is some speculation that the line of Col. GEORGE GILLESPIE came to America from Ireland. The father of THOMAS has never been established.

-------------------------------------------------

DNA TEST KIT #28870 This is a 67 marker DNA kit.

DNA KIT #28870 is a 5th great-grandson of THOMAS GILLESPIE, b. 1719 and his wife NAOMI THOMPSON who both died on Dec. 12, 1797 and are buried together at Thyatira Cemetery in Rowan Co. North Carolina.

DNA TEST KIT #46283 This is a 37 marker DNA kit.

DNA kits #28870 and #46283 are both 5th great-grandsons of THOMAS GILLESPIE and NAOMI THOMPSON. They are 4th cousins to each other. These two kits are an exact 37/37 marker match.

-------------------------------------------------

DNA TEST KIT #46278 This is a 37 marker DNA kit.

Generations:

#2 GEORGE GILLESPIE b.7-22-1751 (granduncle of U.S. Pres. James Knox Polk) married MARY GRAHAM

DNA TEST KIT #40964 This is a 67 marker DNA kit.

Kit #40964 was a surprise DNA match to GROUP 1. The parents of JOHN W. GILLESPIE are unknown. His connection to THOMAS GILLESPIE and NAOMI THOMPSON and Col. GEORGE GILLESPIE has not been established. Results from the 67 marker DNA test and the marriage of JOHN W. in Washington Co. TN in 1846 indicate the closest relationship with the descendants of Col. GEORGE GILLESPIE b. 1735, and especially with DNA TEST KIT #74742 as these two participants share similar DNA mutations. However, this descendant does share a mutation with DNA kit #28870 which points in the direction of THOMAS GILLESPIE and NAOMI THOMPSON -- all of which indicates a close relationship with both T & N and Col. George.
