Hampton is put in the J2b Project: J2b Z1827>M241>?. Difficult to say which will be his final SNP.
The administrators suggest these SNPs for the probable subclade:
J2b Z1827>M241>L283>Z590? please test Z590>Z584>Z638>Z1296; BigY helpful for 67+ marker kits
These is yours:
Very likely this is the subclade, but to test one SNP step by step is useless. Better a Big Y or Y Prime etc., but the best choice I think is to wait and not spending money.

On FT DNA it says that these SNP tests are available to me:


I'm not sure if it is worth following up on one of these or not.
Any thoughts, please?

Thanks :)

... My 37 Marker test results are the following:

J2b   12  24  15  10   14   17  11  15  12  13  11   29  16  8   9   11  11  27 16  20   29  14  15 15 18 11 10  19 20  13 13 16 17 36  39 12  9


Hi Richard

I compared your results with mine and found that, at 37 markers, we share 25:

12 24 15 10 14-17 11 15 12 13 11 29 16 8-9 11 11 27 16 20 29 14-15-15-18 11 10 19 20 13 13 16 17 36-39 12 9
12 24 14 10 13-16 11 15    13 12 11 28 16 8-9 11 11 27 16 19 28 13-15-15-17 11 10 19-20 13 14 16 17 36-38 12 9

I wonder how far back we are related :)

John, thanks for posting these conversations from the old site. In one of the conversations there's a reply from me saying I had been working with Michael, but in retrospect I may have thought Michael W. was Michael A., the later being the Michael I know.

The conversations on David are a welcomed reminder. I'm still having difficulty putting together David's siblings. The research from Marcia, Richard, and others all differ in some respect.

In the last link Marcia mentions that Richard was in Goochland in 1749 paying taxes with his brother Andrew, and Andrews son Michael. This Michael would be the father of Robert Prewitt who, along with his brothers, moved to Fayette Co. KY, which is next to Madison Co., KY. This is why I am so anxious to share DNA results with someone in Roberts line.

In that same conversation Marcia notes in the 1779 tax list that Richard is absent from the roll and may have been off fighting in the war. Elijah is on the tax list and would have been 21 years of age. Do we know which Richard that Marcia was referring to? And why would Elijah not be serving in the war as well?

Ron, Michael William Prewitt had taken the 46 marker DNA test at Ancestry and definitely has the identical DNA to those of you considered as the reference people of Family Group C. Michael has not transferred his DNA to this project at Familytree. I did find a post about Michael' s family that was descended from Davis Pruett on our Ancestry Archive site at

Its unfortunate that most of the information from our Ancestry project except for what we have on our Archive site has been lost. I do find it strange that Micheal signed this Michael Pruett, but it must be Micheal William Prewitt because we didn't have a Micheal Pruett who took the DNA test. We do have a Michael D. Pruitt in Family Group B, but this Michael has no family ties to Davis Pruett. All of Michael William Prewitt's family used Pruett in the past and you know how the Pruett/Pruitt/Prewitt are used interchangeably throughout our families.

There was another post where Michael William Prewitt said David Prewitt(b 1726 in Henrico) was his earliest ancestor:,%20Michael.pdf   However, I think you can assume that Michael William Prewitt line runs through Davis Pruett of SC(1797).

There was a post about a Davis D. Pruitt at which is different from the one posted by Michael William Prewitt.

I also found a good discussion about David Pruitt of VA that should be of interest to you at: because these David Pruetts should be in Family Group C.

I beg to differ on this topic...  most 12 marker matches will be sharing a common ancestor within 24 generations give or take.. with a (24gen 84.13% ) according to TIP
at FTDNA if this is adjusted to not sharing a common ancestor within 7 gens.

So the surnames that come up especially if multiple of the same do indeed give clues
as to who your line was mixing with, and or places they may have been and also to ancient ethnicity... be it Frenchy, Flemish,  Norman, German, Irish etc...

It is worth looking at the 12 marker matches.   We are of the surname of FLEMING..
and our multiple 12 marker matches are KENDALL (50 of them)
FLANDREAU  at 44 gen distance and many other Flemishy Frenchy names that must be clues to ancient origins/migration trail etc.   They are not close cousins but it is not a waste of time to be looking at those distant cousin matches.   In the big picture of DNA testing out of all the names that could come up those that do come up at 12 markers hold many clues even if not a 1 - 5th+ degree cousin.

 I have found looking at the 12 marker surnames ( though distant and related somehow in the big scheme of things) very very fascinating indeed... especially when a match with a surname that could go back to Freskyn The Fleming or Alaine de boles Lord of Swineherd or other interesting characters come up..multiple Douglas or surnames with obvious old county Flanders origins for us are all in the 12 marker matches.  Does not hurt to check out the 12 marker matches as your 12 marker matches are going to be similar but also different to others who do not have your exact dna signature.  They are going to be unique to who your family was mixing with 24+ gens back. Thomas Sherwood, b. 1586, Nottinghamshire, England is one of our 12 marker cousin matches... if that is not a clue to possible ancient origins and pre migration trail before my family came  to Australia I do not know what is.   I am not an expert but this is what I think about it all.
