LINE #10 J2 - Haplogroup b>J2. This haplogroup originated in the northern portion of the Fertile Crescent where it later spread throughout central Asia, the Mediterranean, and south into India. As with other populations with Mediterranean ancestry this lineage is found within Jewish populations. http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~dgarvey/DNA/hg/YCC_J.htmlhttp://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~dgarvey/DNA/hg/YCC_J.html
DNA TEST KIT #62864 This is a 12 marker DNA kit. Generations: #1 John Irving Fish b. abt. 1791 and died abt. 1879 in Chatham, NY, m. Leanora Horton Egan.
The descendant who provided this DNA sample uses the surname MacPherson.
LINE #11 - Haplogroup R1a1. R1a The R1a lineage is believed to have originated in the Eurasian Steppes north of the Black & Caspian Seas. This lineage is thought to descend from a population of the Kurgan culture, known for the domestication of the horse (circa 3000 B.C.E.). These people were also believed to be the first speakers of the Indo-European language group. This lineage is found in central & western Asia, India, and in Slavic populations of Europe.
The term "clericus" originally applied to someone in a religious order, and later to a secretary, scribe, scholar or church cleric. Clarke is an associated family of Clan MacPherson.
DNA TEST KIT #74852 This is a 37 marker DNA kit. Generations: #1 William Clarke, b. abt. 1818 Glasgow, Scotland d. Montreal, Canada. Deputy Collector of Customs, Niagara, Upper Canada, 1825 - 1838; served in British Army; m. Janet Russell, 1815. #2 Francis Henderson Clarke b. 12-12-1851, Montreal, Canada, d. 11-21-1921 Hudson Heights, Quebec.
LINE #12 - Haplogroup R1b1. Haplogroup R1b1 is the most common haplogroup in European populations. It is believed to have expanded throughout Europe as humans re-colonized after the last glacial maximum 10-12 thousand years ago. This lineage is also the haplogroup containing the Atlantic modal haplotype.
