A number of descendants of Michael Treece, b. 1759, have now done a yDNA test.  One tester matches the "main" group - lineage 1 - of Treece yDNA results.  The others do not match.

The fact that one person does match makes me revise my theory.  I now suspect:

  • Michael Treece b.1759 was a biological descendant of Peter Dries, b.1716.
  • There may have been more than one Michael, and records might be intermixed
  • The NPE I seek could be George Treece/Trease b. abt 1787

I have also done autosomal DNA testing, and I match as a distant cousin more than one person who is a descendant of Michael's sibling(s).  Of course the assumed family tree is based on traditional genealogy research by others and myself.  Two Michaels could explain how I share Michael's parent(s) as an ancestor with some other testers, yet Michael himself also matches lineage 1 in the project -- they could be two different people/families.

We really need some more descendants of Michael and George in the project, since no clear pattern has emerged yet.

Feel free to add your thoughts to this discussion or contact me.

There is more than one Michael Treece but only one that moved to Tennessee.
