International Lindsay* DNA Group 2

"Lindseys of Long Marsh, Frederick County, Virginia"

The defining term "Lindseys of Long Marsh, Frederick County, Virginia" is used in an attempt to establish a basic origin geography for the composite DNA Group 2.

Susan Grabek is the Group Administrator for DNA Group 2 and can be reached via e-mail by clicking on Susan Grabek.  Susan is a very knowledgeable researcher for this grouping of Lindseys and should be your first contact for questions pertaining to DNA Group 2 genealogy and in the determination of the Most Recent Common Ancestor (MRCA).

Susan Grabek has created a great external web site specifically for DNA Group 2 genealogical researchers.  Click on Susan's Group 2 Web Site to access.

The DNA Group 2 is currently a grouping of twenty-three (23) individuals.

Click on DNA Data Spreadsheet to view the DNA marker values for the current participants of DNA Group 2.

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

  1. An interesting fact regarding DNA Group 2 is that 22 of the 23 participants currently spell their surname with an "e".
  2. Participants L0083, L0102 and L0156 are perfect matches to the DNA Group 2 modal haplotype.
  3. Participants L0018, L0028, L0029 and L0030 are also perfect matches to the DNA Group 2 modal haplotype if we ignore the NULL readings at marker DYS441.  It is likely that these four participants are closely related each with a Y-chromosome mutation adjacent to the DYS441 marker, which produced the NULL reading at that marker.
  4. After a lengthy and arduous research effort, culminating with the use of handwriting analysis, Susan Grabek has proven that David Lindsey, Revolutionary War soldier who died ca 1836, in Shelby County, Alabama, was the common ancestor of DNA participants L0028 and L0164.
  5. If we ignore the NULL reading at DYS463, participants L0045 and L0059 are a perfect match both with a unique value of 26 at marker DYS447.
  6. It is very likely that L0102 and L0115, with one mismatching marker at DYS388, share a MRCA at Jacob Lindsey who married Elizabeth Abrell.
  7. There appears to be known Hezekiah Lindseys in the ancestry of both participants L0038 and L0083.  Clermont County, Ohio also appears to be the common geography for the ancestry of these two participants.
  8. Participants L0018 and L0102 are a perfect match on 43 markers, ignoring the NULL reading at DYS441, with each having a "Jacob" Lindsey who was born in Georgia in the early 1800s.

If you have information, accompanied by the appropriate citations, that demonstrate how any one of these Lindsey lineages in DNA Group 2 are connected, please contact Susan Grabek, Administrator, DNA Group 2.

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.

Note: DNA Group 2 Administrator, Susan Grabek (E-Mail), is also a Lindsey researcher and descends from Findley Lindsey, a brother of Joshua Lindsey (1799 KY - bef.1855 Indiana).  Susan, employing some of the previous work done by her cousin Carol Huber (they both descend from Joshua's proven brother Findley Lindsey), has developed a strong circumstantial position that would establish this Joshua Lindsey as a grandson of one William Lindsey.  This William Lindsey is believed to be a brother of the Hezekiah Lindsey found in the write-up of Lindsay participant L0038 above.  DNA Group 2 participants may want to contact Susan directly to gain more depth regarding her thoughts on this Lindsey lineage and its connecting links.

 

Lindsay Code No.: L0083

Surname of Participant: Lindsey

Earliest Known Progenitor: Stephen Lindsey b. ca 1775 Virginia, d. Sept. 7, 1864 Fulton County, Illinois, married Rachel Reynolds Dec. 1798 in Campbell County, Kentucky.  The children of Stephen Lindsey & Rachel Reynolds were, Nathan (b. circa 1802 KY), James (died circa age 18), Jonah (b. Ohio), Jacob, Phoebe (m. Mr. Lovell), Reuben, Stephen, Hannah (m. Mr. Stoops) & Hezekiah.  The migration path for Stephen Lindsey (1775 Virginia - 1864 Illinois) was his marriage and time in Campbell County, Kentucky to Clermont County, Ohio to Fulton County, Illinois.  In an October 17, 1843 deposition by Stephen Lindsey (1775 VA - 1864 IL), he states, in 1782, he went to live, at age 7 or 8, with his maternal aunt, Ruth Beasley Dollar & her husband William Dollar, in Berkeley County, Virginia.  Inferring the maiden name of Beasley, for the mother of Stephen Lindsey, provides a possibly connection to Edmond Lindsey (Long Marsh-now Clarke County, Virginia Lindseys), b. 1697 who married Elizabeth Beasley in Baltimore Co. MD in 1724.  This could imply that Edmond Lindsey & Elizabeth Beasley were the grandparents or great-uncle/aunt of Stephen Lindsey.  DNA participant L0083 descends from the lineage of Nathan Lindsey, eldest son of Stephen Lindsey (1775 VA - 1864 IL).

Lindsay Code No.: L0136

Surname of Participant: Lindsey

Elijah Lindsey's father is believed to have been Jacob Lindsey Sr. of Frederick Co., VA and Wilkes Co., GA.  Jacob Lindsey Sr. is the proved ancestor of DNA Group 2 participant L0156.  However, this relationship between Elijah Lindsey and Jacob Lindsey Sr. has not been proved.
