Hazel / Hazle / Hazell / Hasel / Hasle
Hello Fellow Researchers!
Several Hazel / Hazle / Hazell / Hasel / Hasle researchers have joined forces and organized a DNA test group with FamilyTree DNA.The purpose of these tests is to distinguish the relationships between the various lines.Many of us realize we have gone as far as possible with traditional methods of research (courthouse records, bible records, etc.).We have lots of theories about how our lines mesh, but we don’t have any proof positive.DNA testing can help solve that problem and put us on the right track, showing us which lines are closely related, and which are less so.
Our group is looking for DNA sampling from any Hazel / Hazle / Hazell / Hasel / Hasle (or any other variant) male, in a direct line of documented descent.We have DNA donors from several specific groups of Hazels, some of which we suspect are related.They are:
The Caleb Hazel Line:Everyone knows Caleb
The Daniel Hazel Sr. Line: Born 1746 VA, son of Richard and Marget Hazel
The Ignatius Hazel Line: Virginia to Green County, KY circa 1800
The St. Mary’s County, Maryland / Barbados / Maryland Hazel Line
The South Carolina Hazel Line:Sethfield Hazel, born about 1802 probably in Edgefield County, SC and Henry Hazel of Edgefield County, SC + many other Hazels of SC.
The Albert Edward Hazell Line of Canada and possibly England:Late 1800s
We would like to find more DNA donors from the above lines as well as some from the following lines:
The Power Hazel Line:In 1749, he was living in Frederick County, VA.After that, Hampshire County, (W) VA.
The Jedson / Judson Hazel Line: There are at least 2 men of this name.One is a brother of Ignatius Hazel listed above and may, or may not, be the Jedson who was in Howard County, MO 1819 and Cooper County, MO 1825.Another Jedson / Judson was born in St. Mary’s County, MD in 1822.
Any Richard Hazel Line:There are so many Richards, we have difficulty sorting them in conventional ways.
The costs involved in the study are only for the actual DNA testing and a group discount has been extended to us:12 markers are done for $99 (usually $159), and can be upgraded to 25 markers for another $90.If all 25 are done at once, it is $169 (usually $229).We suggest the 12 marker test initially.After that individuals can decide if they want to expand to the 25 marker test for more detailed information.Collection of DNA is just the swiping of the inside of the cheek to get sample cells from saliva for testing.The DNA is not used for any other purpose.For more information on the procedure, you can visit:http://www.familytreedna.com/http://www.familytreedna.com/
What we could get from doing a comparison of the various Hazel lines would be the proof or disproval of a link between the various groups.Each Hazel group would have a baseline for comparison of our ancestor to others of the same name.There is an article on the internet written by a member of the Mumma family on their study.Their web site is: http://www.mumma.org/DNA.htmhttp://www.mumma.org/DNA.htmYou may be interested in reading it to see exactly what one of these studies involves.It is very well written.I do not know any of the people, nor am I financially affiliated with FamilyTree DNA.
I am organizing the group and I am of Daniel Hazel Sr.’s line.Some of you may know Joe Hazel from Caleb’s line.He has offered to look closely at the analyses of the data since he has experience in biology and paleobiology.Barry Hazle and his son, also of Daniel Hazel Sr.’s line, have offered to design the web page that will make our findings available to all researchers.
We hope to be well established before the August Caleb Hazel Reunion in Indiana at which time we hope to recruit more DNA donors.
If you are interested in arranging a DNA test please contact me.We look forward to working with all Hazel (all spellings) researchers on this exciting endeavor.Hopefully it will take us all to a new level of research.
