mtDNA and lineage from Richard Warren, Francis Cooke and/or John Cooke
We are descended from Richard Warren, John Cooke and Francis Cooke through Sarah Warren (Richard's daughter, John's wife, and Francis' daughter-in-law).We haven't proved it yet, but we are in the process of doing so and we believe we are very close.
The line is an all-female one from Sarah (Warren) Cooke through my paternal grandmother:
- Sarah (Warren) Cooke
- Mary (Cooke) Taber
- Esther (Taber) Brownell
- Esther (Brownell) Tefft
- Ruth (Tefft) Kenyon
- Mary (Kenyon) Terry
- Esther (Terry) Barber
- Altana (Barber) Hoag
- Emma (Hoag) Smith
- Elizabeth (Smith) Coulthard
- my paternal grandmother
So my paternal grandmother should have the same mtDNA as Sarah (Warren) Cooke.
My dad just did a Y-DNA67+mtDNAPlus test on familytreedna.com.We plan to submit the results to the Mayflower DNA project at http://www.familytreedna.com/public/mayflower%20society/http://www.familytreedna.com/public/mayflower%20society/
We're looking for others with all female lines going back to Sarah (Warren) Cooke (and therefore Richard Warren, John Cooke, and Francis Cooke).Hoping that you might consider doing the mtDNA test.
