Re: John WALRAVEN - OH ? Walraven Jansen DEVOS

In Reply to: Re: John WALRAVEN - OH ? Walraven Jansen DEVOS by Valerie Wolf of 295

Just discovered this site and its very interesting information. I have the same information about Sara Walraven as that cited. I also have John Walraven b. 1827 in Coshocton County, Ohio, as son of William of Hendrick Walraven's line but no marriage or other information. All this information is from Mary Nell Ash's book, The Walraven Family, 1635-1993.

I am trying to find male Walravens descended from the Hendrick Walraven line. Ed Walraven, of the Walraven List, and I, along with four other Walraven males, have had DNA testing done. The results were surprising. The DNA of the Southern Walravens (descendants of John Sr. of Georgia) and the DNA of a proven descendant of Jansen de Vos through a Virginia connection is an almost perfect match (22 out of 24 markers). The DNA of the only proven descendant through Hendrick's line, Millard Walraven, an uncle of Mary Ash, does NOT match at all.

There is also a Walraven family history that does not list Hendrick as a son of Jansen de Vos. It is important to note that Hendrick WAS in Delaware at the time. The DNA testing company points out that unknown adoptions (or other such problems) may occur in any family. We are eager to find a Hendrick descendant from another line to see what those results would show.

If anyone on this forum isor knows ofa male Walraven who is a proven descendant of Hendrick and is willing to have his DNA tested (solely for genealogical purposes), please contact me.
