My name is Gregory Askay. My email address is email@example.com
. My FTDNA kit number is # 201441. I am a member of the Webster DNA Project. Attached hereto is my pedigree for inclusion into the Webster DNA Project: Patriarch section. I'm referencing for you information my father's FTDNA kit number # 229955. He only tested to the 12 marker level as a means of double checking the findings of my kit wherein I was identified as a genetic Webster. He was unaware of "our" Webster genetic heritage and quite honestly it took him by surprise. . .to say the least, when he discovered that he and I were not genetic Askays. It was quite a shock for him to learn at 91 years of age that his "father" was not his biological father. My paper trail research and the below referenced genetic testing through FTDNA has confirmed our Webster genetic lineage.
I am also referencing Max E. Webster's FTDNA kit # 247103 and Richard Steele's FTDNA kit # 244310. I paid for Max E. Webster to test to the 67 marker level as a way of confirming my genetic tie to our most recent common ancestor, William Russell Webster (1801-1860). Max E. Webster is also a member of the Webster DNA Project. Max is a descendant of William Russell Webster and his first wife, Ester Coats, whereas my father and I descend from William Russell Webster and his second wife, Mehitable Denslow. We match exactly at the 67 marker level.
Based on my research and my genetic matches with other "Webster" progeny in the Patriarch group, including Loren Webster (Kit # 25626), I was able to establish my Webster lineage as follows:
(Gov.) John Webster, b. 1590 England to Mass. Bay Colony in 1634, d. 5 Apr 1661, Hadley, Hampshire Co., MA. Gov. of Connecticut. Married to Agnes Smith.
