My haplogroup has been described as a subset of R-M269 which originated between 2000 and 4000 years ago. One can tell from looking at the signatory STR marker sequence of the other members that they have a very low probability of sharing this sub-set with me. At this time of writing, It appears to me that I do not share an ancestor on my paternal lineage with any of the others on this project, that lived at least within the last 2000 years.

I envisage that if my terminal SNP was to be appropriately "tweaked" then at least five of the blue, orange and purple coloured marker squares, currently suggesting haplogroup deviation would be obliged to change colour to green.

These are the DYS390 (23), YCAiib (22), DYS607 (14), DYS492 (13) and DYS635 (25) STR markers that predict my status as being R-U198+

Lydia Hardy first appears in Johnson county IL about 1841 buying land at a public land sale record.  Her dau, Laura Marinda also appears the same day and purchases twice the amount of acres.

Then Laura Marinda marries 1842 John A Echols.  He is primarily from Union and Pulaski counties IL.  His father is a local Methodist minister that was all over southwestern IL.

We next find them on the 1850 AR Hot Spring county census.  Lydia consistlently gives New Hampshire for her birth place.  And other the next many years she buy and sells land in her own right.  The HH of Lydia also contains a presumed son Augustus born 1830 NH as a surveyor.  He is on the 1860 census as a Lawyer and served as a county official before his death in 1862.  He also married and had one child but a divorce had been started but never completed before his death.  One girl child was born but probably died before the 1870 census.  Wife remarried and they moved on.....
Augustus also gave birth place both times as N H.

Laura had several children before her death in 1865.  Laura consistently gave N H as her birthplace and on later her children gave NH as their mothers birthplace.

Lydia would appear to have had means and above average education.

Was Lydia born a Hardy? or was she a Hardy widow?  There are very few possiblilties if you give Lydia an age range with 2 children female b 1822 and male b 1830 on the NH 1840 Census of Hardy households.  The only other person that she has dealings with that is not southern is a Phineas Barnes from OH but he also seems to disappear.

Any and all help would be appreciated. We have been at this point of research for many years and do not have access to NH items other than census.

Thanks in advance

Got the email this weekend and want to thank you for taking the time and providing us with detailed information regarding our subclade!!!

Although I'm still conducting the traditional research in tracing my American ancestor back to Scotland, to find out that genetically I connect to a male ancestor that lived around 300 BC in the Denmark/Northern Germany region is just plain phenomenal. 

Best regards!

As of today, through tomorrow, you can get a FamilyFinder test at FTDNA for $79.  Does this help the surname project?  Yes, it certainly may.  Even if it doesn't help the surname project, you will have some fun with it.  Some things you may find, from my own experience:

  • You have hundreds (thousands, actually) of cousins.  In my case, over 800 matches from FamilyFinder.  Each match is a cousin or relative, likely.  Most are fairly distant, such as fourth cousins (in case you don't know, a fourth cousin means the common ancestor is a few more generations away than in the case of first cousin, where the common ancestor is grandparents)
  • Many of those cousins are doing genealogy work and may have information that you don't have
  • If you get "into" it, you can use a number of tools, programs, and spreadsheets to analyze data from many of your matches, leading to theories on how you match, specifically
  • Even if you and your cousin have pretty good pedigrees and genealogy data, you may have a hard time figuring out who the common ancestor is.  When you think about it, every female ancestor may have taken a new name, and that applies to children of the ancestor and so on.  Each one can be a fun puzzle, though.
  • It is possible to deduce much deeper insight when combining multiple people who match in a particular way. I won't describe that here, you'll have to take my word for it. Because of this aspect, I have developed a new theory for my ancestry. The theory will likely be proven using DNA results.
  • While there will likely be some almost instant gratification, much of the value will come over time, as you put effort into it, and as other relatives test. For the enthusiast, it keeps on giving.
  • It helps understand the results if you have a few known relatives who have also tested.

Given what you can get out of a FamilyFinder test, it is a very good value, even at the normal price of $99, assuming you have the slightest bit of curiosity about your family tree.
