Re: Fontaine Maury Society annual meeting in Oct. in NC
Hi - thus far we have not had a Rev. Francis Fontaine descendant take the DNA test; we have had descendants of his brothers John and the Reverend Peter.
For John Risher he won't match the Fontaines as the Y-DNA only passes from father to son to grandson, etc., so you would need to find documented direct male descendants of Benjamin Risher to take the test and also of John Risher.The trouble with the Y-DNA is that it will confirm if they do share a common ancestor or not, but not how.
Hope this helps!
