[As of 23 Sep 2008, H-6, H-8 and H-10 are now showing 67/67 DNA Matches. This means the families are very closely related genetically. They all share the zero or null value at DYS# 425.
Comments Mike Terry to W. M. Hunter concerning H-10David C. Hefner b Feb. 12, 1812, TN d abt. July 1, 1862, CSA Hospital, Oxford, MS. Tests results to date seem to indicate H-10 is closely related to those in Lineage Group 1.
When they have finished the test you will be able to see what SNP values you have related to E1b1b1 haplogroup. This further defines how related you might be to someone else who tested E1b1b1. Think of E1b1b1 as the "branch" of a tree and the SNP value as the "twig" on the branch.
The closer a person is to you is signified by their SNP values as well.
My 3rd cousin a Heftner H-8 in the study has SNP tested and is E1b1b1M35+The + means M35 is present. A M35- or negative means M35 is not present. You should be able to find the haplogroup E1b1b1 in the phylogenic tree presented in the following link and it is down on the page. Also H-5 is E1b1b1M35+ So this E1b1b1 is probably the Lineage Group 1 modal haplogroup with this M35+ value.
Since H-6 and my 3rd cousin [a Heftner]and H-8 are 67/67 they probably have the same E1b1b1M35+ values. I am of course a Terry and the Heftner line is from my grandfather's mother born in Yell County, Arkansas in 1871. See my pedigree posted.
H-8 and H-1 are 4th cousins once removed and are out of David Hefner their most recent common ancestor.
H-5 out of Daniel Hefner and H-3out of Samuel Hefner are 4th cousins twice removed. Daniel's oldest son John Frederick Hefner b 1810 Buncombe County North Carolina died 1878 in Bradley County, Tennessee. This is the only indication that I have of a Tennessee Hefner out of Lincoln/Buncombe County, North Carolina. From the births of his children it looks like they moved after 1831 to Tennessee.
We are not quite sure how our David Hefner [H-8 and H-1] is related to Samuel [H-3] and Daniel Hefner [H-5]; however, we are related per the DNA test and these Hefner families moved about the same time from Lincoln County, North Carolina to Buncombe County, North Carolina. An older Frederick Hefner moved with them. We believe he may be the link to the Berks County, Pennsylvania family of H-6 Heinrich Haefner m Ursula Gramlich of the Berks Co PA family.
