West DNA project Levi West 1725/6 MD West Family Group #1
W05 is a descendent of Levi West b 1725/6 in Maryland, he matches 11 of
12 markers with W02 a descendent of Eli West b 1771 d about 1860 in
Miami Co Ohio. W15 was added to this family group on 26 Mar 2004
when his DNA test was completed showing a 24/25 match to W05. His
oldest confirmed ancestor is Soloman West born 1794-96 SC. The DNA
samples differ by one mutation at DYS 391. We have learned from experience
that matches on the 12 marker test even with the same surname can fail
to match when the test is expanded to 25 markers. However in comparing
W02 with W08 and W15 we are very confident that they share a common
ancestor because of other information revealed by the DNA test.
W57 was added to this group on June 22 2005 following receipt of his
DNA results. He matches W15 on 24 of 25 markers. W57 is descended from
James West born 1771 in North Carolina and his wife Anna Sanders.
He had no prior connection to other members of family group #1.
W90 Was added to this group on 7 April 2006. He matches W15 on 23 of
25 markers and has the rale value of 14 for DYS426. He is descended
from Thomas West b 1750 and died 1802 in Maryland. Thomas West married
W99 matches W05 on 25 of 25 markers tested. He was added to this group
on April 28 2006. His oldest ancestor prior to the DNA texas was
Elijah West born 1786 in Sussex Co Delaware and died in Sangamon Co
Illinois in 1840. Elijah married Elizabeth Henderson who was born 1791
in Maryland and died in 1866 in Sangamon Co Ill.
W02, W05, W15, W57, W90, and W99 have a very rare marker of DYS426.
The value of 14 for DYS 426 has been found in less than 10 of over 30,000
DNA samples analyzed by FTDNA's testing lab. Descendents of these
families are exchanging information to further their genealogy research.
