International Lindsay* DNA Group 4

"Lindsays of Sevier County, Tennessee & Laclede County, Missouri"

The defining term "Lindsays of Sevier County, Tennessee & Laclede County, Missouri" is used in an attempt to establish a basic origin geography for the composite DNA Group 4.

Patricia Lindsay Towns is the Group Administrator for DNA Group 4 and can be reached via e-mail by clicking on Pat Towns.  Pat is a very knowledgeable researcher for this grouping of Lindsays/Lindseys and should be your first contact for questions pertaining to DNA Group 4 genealogy and in the determination of the Most Recent Common Ancestor (MRCA).

DNA Group 4 is currently composed of five (5) participants.

Click on DNA Data Spreadsheet to see the DNA marker values for the current participants of DNA Group 4.

************************************************

Participant L0037 is a perfect match with the DNA Group 4 modal haplotype.  Participant L0067 has one mismatching marker with the DNA Group 4 modal haplotype.  It is interesting to see that the earliest known ancestors, for L0037 and L0067, came from the same geography, that being Sevier County, Tennessee.

The name of the Most Recent Common Ancestor (MRCA) for these Lindsay/Lindsey lineages has not yet been proven, but the stated pedigrees of participants L0022, L0027 and L0037 of DNA Group 4 would suggest James Lindsey (b.1799 TN?/NC?) as their MRCA.

If you have information, accompanied by the appropriate citations, that demonstrate how the Lindsay/ Lindsey lineages of DNA Group 4 are connected, please contact the DNA Group 4 Administrator, Pat Towns .

Reference Notes

  1. Proper Analysis of DYS389-1 & DYS389-2 Marker Mutations.

In analyzing the marker values in the table representing this DNA Group, it is important to remember the following in your analysis of loci DYS389-1 and DYS389-2 matches and mismatches.

  1. The loci DYS389-1 and DYS389-2 are two legitimate lengths of DNA but move in tandem.
  2. DYS389-1 refers to the length of only one portion of the DYS389 marker.
  3. DYS389-2 refers to the total length of the DYS389 marker. Therefore, when there is a one step mutation at DYS389-1, it will also appear to be in DYS389-2.
  4. When comparing one individual to another, if the values for two individuals differ by one repeat at DYS389-1, that represents a one-step mismatch.
  5. If the values for the same two individuals differ also by one repeat at DYS389-2, then it should only be counted as one combined mutation for DYS389-1 & DYS389-2.
  6. If the marker values for two individuals differ by one repeat mismatch at DYS389-1 and a two repeat mismatch at DYS389-2, then it should be counted as two separate mismatches or mutations.
  7. There is another and potentially even more confusing situation that could occur at marker DYS389. If the marker values for two individuals differ by one repeat mismatch at DYS389-1 and then a perfect match at DYS389-2 for these same two individuals. This should be counted as two separate marker mismatches since the value mismatch at DYS389-1 was offset by a mutation in the opposite "direction" from the value found at DYS389-2 and appears to cancel out the mutation that occurred at DYS389-1.
  8. However, keep in mind there can be a mutation at DYS389-2 that will not affect the length found at DYS389-1.

Lindsay Code No.: L0022            
Surname of Participant: Lindsay
Earliest Known Progenitor: John W. Lindsay b. January 24, 1825 Sevier County, Tennessee, d. October 31, 1914 Laclede County, Missouri, married ?
  
Lindsay Code No.: L0027
Surname of Participant: Lindsey
Earliest Known Progenitor: Evan Martin Lindsey b. July 1, 1837 Alabama, d. January 18, 1909 Prentiss County, Mississippi, married (1) June 17, 1855 Georgia Anne Lindsey, daughter of Hiram Lindsey and Caroline ?.

Note from the Project Coordinator:  It is believed that John W. Lindsay (1825-1914) and Evan Martin Lindsey (1837-1909) are brothers and the sons of James Lindsey (b.1799 TN?/NC?) who married Nancy Pate.  If this is true, the Most Recent Common Ancestor (MRCA) for participants L0022 and L0027 is James Lindsay, born 1799 in either Tennessee or North Carolina.

Lindsay Code No.: L0037
Surname of Participant: Lindsay
Earliest Known Progenitor: John William Lindsay b. January 24, 1824 near the French Broad River, Sevier County, Tennessee, d. October 31, 1914 Laclede County, Missouri.  John William Lindsay married Susan Caroline Shelton (b. August 25, 1830), September 3, 1846 in Alabama.

Note from the Project Coordinator:  Participants L0022 and L0037 both claim descent from the same "Earliest Known Progenitor"(John W. & John William Lindsay).  Thus, if the stated pedigrees can be proven for participants L0022, L0027 and L0037 of DNA Group 4, then we could conclude that John William Lindsay (1824-1914) is the MRCA for participants L0022 & L0037 and furthermore the father of John William Lindsay and Evan Martin Lindsey, believed to be James Lindsey (b.1799 TN?/NC?), will become the MRCA for participants L0022, L0027 and L0037.

Lindsay Code No.: L0067            
Surname of Participant: Lindsay
Earliest Known Proven Progenitor: James Lindsey b. Mar. 21, 1818 Sevier County, Tennessee, d. Dec. 27, 1879 Sevier County, Tennessee.  It is believed that John Lindsey, born 1791 Sevier County, TN is the father of James Lindsey (1818-1879).
 
Lindsay Code No.: L0113            
Surname of Participant: Lindsey
Earliest Known Proven Progenitor: David Lindsey b. Jan. 10, 1836 Jefferson County, Tennessee, d. Oct. 21, 1927 Eldon, Miller County, Missouri, m. Elizabeth Taylor in 1855 in Cole County, Missouri.
