Re: Abraham, Thomas, Abraham 1635-1755-Va.
I am looking for more of Isaac's present descendants to see if they have an interest in the Spencer Family DNA Project.Thus far, paternal Y-DNA results go to Sharp/e, son of John and Rosanna Graves, but none directly to his son, Isaac, that married the three Devers sisters.
I am attempting to establish some additonal Spencer information for Ken Graves at the Graves Family Association.Our line through Rosanna is proven to be of another line other than the Jamestown lineage of Captain Thomas Graves...family #169.We are now in the #270 family of a John or Thomas Graves of Massachusetts and England...thought to be related to Captain Thomas Graves.Fortunately, through my father's Spencers and Graves, I am still a direct descendant to Captain Thomas Graves, but Rosanna Graves Spencer has been proven through DNA testing of her brother's line to be of other Graves lineage.
I think we may have had contact before.If so, you live in Indiana and have a brother, Jack or John in Dallas.I am the John Spencer that was born in nearby Evansville, Indiana, and raised in Southern Illinois...now residing in San Francisco.I would be interested in encouraging Jack to join the Spencer Family DNA Project, so that we can now show Isaac's line as a direct descendant of Abraham and Susanna Sharp/e.Our John and Rosanna had 2 or 3 daughters that married Maupins.In my research I find that we are cousins to Armistead Maupin, the author of "Tales of the City."
No one has yet to provide that we Spencer of Early Virginia actually descend from Abraham b. 1602 through the DNA of descendants other than our Abraham.However, I am keeping it that way in my records until a I learn otherwise.I would enjoy hearing from you and sharing any further information.
