Hannah M Gill, Sands, Iddings Descendants
My name is Bambie Linn Reed.I have been doing genealogy for most of my life.The current project that I'm putting together is for my great, great grandmother and the descendents who came from the marriage with her second husband.Her name is Luzernia Long and her husband is Bill Long.
Our family has been working together for 3 generations to put Bill's genealogy together with much challenge between here and there.With the advent of technology, the web, and many folks out there doing this great service, we are making a lot of progress.
One of the more recent tools is mitochondrial DNA testing which comes through the mother's DNA.I don't know how familiar you are with this process.I have come here because the mitochondrial DNA we need to finally prove who Uncle Bill is also has been passed down in the family lines as follows:
Mary who married Thomas Tuston
Hannah D. Tustin b: 2 MAR 1799 is on your genealogy lines.Hannah married
Elisha R SANDS their daughter is
Mary T. SANDS b: 2 SEP 1820 in PA she married
Isaac N GILL b:21 DEC 1848
In the 1860 census I found their children:
Hannah M. 8
George M. 3
Charles E. 1
This looks like these are the same person, Hannah M Gill daughter of Mary T. Sands and Isaac N Gill and Hannah M. Gill ( wife of Philip B Iddings; and due to the significance of this project to my family, if there was a bit more information strengthening this connection, it would be very helpful.
Then I found a
Hannah M GILL
in your genealogy web pages b: 1860, died 1904
in a census of 1900 in Union Centre, Pennsylvania that is the right age
she married Philip B IDDINGS b: abt. 1859 in PA
he is the son of Reuben IDDINGS and Elizabeth LEATHERS
he was born 11 JAN 1859 and died 2 NOV 1917
She shows up in the 1900 census as Hannah M GILL which is what you would expect.
What I am looking for is verification that the Hannah M GILL daughter of Isaac N Gill and Mary T Sands
is the same Hannah M GILL married to Phillip B IDDINGS. b: 1859 d: 1917
Alma E IDDINGS (female) B: 1889, D: 1979 m
Percy C PORTZER est:1909 for marriage
Living PORTZER (female) est b: 1909 married
Living YOCKEY B est: 1909
The importance of the female DNA will help our family considerably.Please help us find a living descendent who is willing to share a mouth swab for DNA purposes, we’ll share the results and pay for the DNA test.
The two things we are looking for:
1. Verification of Hannah M Gill daughter of Isaac Gill and Mary T. Sands is the same as the Hannah M Gill wife of Philip B. IDDINGS
2. Female to female to female descendents of Hannah M. Gill daughter of Isaac Gill and Mary T. Sands.
