We invite you to submit your "Pedigree" for this Surname.   Our Surname Project is primarily interested in your Paternal line, as surnames are passed down from father to son, just as the yDNA is passed down. 

If you ARE A MEMBER of this Surname Project at Family Tree DNA, send your pedigree by email to WorldFamilies.net at mari@worldfamilies.net.  The pedigree will then be posted on the Surname Project's Patriarchs Page by Worldfamilies.net or sent to the Project’s Administrator.

Please include the following:
•       Name of project
•       Kit Number
•       Name of person posting pedigree
•       Email address to be posted with pedigree
•       Name, birthdate, birthplace, spouse of Earliest Known Ancestor
•       List each succeeding generation, using only those four items of information (or substitute another item of information if missing an item)

 (If you have more information you would like to share, you may also post a more extended version of your family pedigree on the project website’s Pedigree Forum below)

If you are NOT A MEMBER of this Surname Project at Family Tree DNA, you are welcome to post your pedigree on the Pedigree Forum below.  We hope an interested researcher will see it and contact you to share information.

Ricky do you have a male Roundtree (any spelling) who can be DNA tested? As you know the Thomas Roundtree/Rountree line has matched perfectly with John S Rowntree who was the son of Turner Rowntreee of SC and I believe VA. I think he is the son of Richardson Rowntree.

Our proven Thomas Roundtree line is of County Armagh Ireland. I am very excited to see your line posted and wonder about any connection.

Never mind to most of my comments or questions. I have now figured it out.

I am still uncertain about the County Armagh connections.

Hi,
This isn't proven, but would like confirmation, if anyone knows for sure:
John Rountree (1762-1821) Orange Co., NC to Maury, TN. Married Nancy Manning. Daughter Jerusha (Jerusa) married John Ellis (1773-1842) North Carolina to Georgia. Their son John (1812-1856) married Bathsheba Hatten in Telfair Co., Georgia.

Thanks,

Debbie,

No, John, the son of Thomas Rountree and Evy Sturgis, who went to Maury County, TN, married Jelsey Thompson.

It was a different John Rountree who married Nancy Manning and went to Georgia.  I am not sure who he was, but might have been Thomas's brother.

I know that the Georgia family think that second John was Thomas's son, but I have 100% proof that Thomas's son went to Maury and married Jelsey Thomson.

Jones was used as a Christian name by the Rountree family in Co. Armagh, Ireland, from the late 18th. century through to the beginning of the 20th. century, and several Rountree families who immigrated to the USA, from Armagh, used it in the 19th. century.

However, I cannot find any link between these families and that of James Vandiver Jones.    Unfortunately, James's descendents cannot trace further back than James, but there is a suspicion that he was illegitimate.

Teresa,

It was nice to see you tree posted.   Thank you.   Could you please let us know the original sources of your information for your tree from Moses through to Francis.

Also, do you have information connecting Francis to the William, who married Dorcus.  Again, have you information which says Dorcus was a Dudley?

We now have a 100% match on 67 markers between a descendent of Thomas Rountree/Evy Sturgis and a descendent of William Rountree, who was born around 1699, in Virginia, through his son, Turner.   Turner is a brother of Richardson Rountree.

This means, according to FTDNA, that there is a 99.4% probability that the common ancestor is just 9 generations back, which clearly puts him in Co. Armagh, Ireland.

Rickie, I need to quibble with you a little over the interpretation - as the close match says that there is a recent shared ancestor.  It could be 9 generations - or could be earlier or later than 9 generations.

As long as the paper trails are saying the connection is before America - and both of these families come from Co Armagh, fine - but the dna match simply says it is a close match.  It does not say when or where.

Terry,

I accept what you are saying about the DNA not telling where the common ancestor lived; I know it cannot directly do that.   The paper trail for one of the participants definitely goes back to Co. Armagh, to around 1700.  The other starts in Virginia around 1700.   However, if you take the percentages given by FTDNA, there is a 99.4% chance that the common ancestor is 9 generations back.   So, yes, there is supposedly a 0.6% chance it is longer than 9 generations.   This assumes, of course, that FTDNA statistics are correct and believable.   It is known that the Rountree family were in Co. Armagh back, at least, 10 generations from one of the participants (as it is from myself).

I would like to add that there is a Rountree legend written in 1867 that talks about a Rountree coming, with 6 sons, to Virginia from Ireland, around the end of the 17th. century.   Now that story has some factual errors, as well as some highly contentious fable like assumptions, but I assume there is some basis of truth in it.

In retrospect I should have said that there is a nearly 100% chance that the common ancestor was from Ireland.   But I still say that if the ancestor was only 9 generations back, he was in Ireland.

Hey Fred.  Combining dna results and paper trails is a very powerful tool and I would draw a similar (if not identical) conclusion to yours based on what you are reporting. 

I am only cautioning about how much of the conclusion can be borne by the dna result.

There are serious analytical researchers  who caution that FTDNA's mutation rate is probably not as high as FTDNA claims.  FTDNA has not provided their basis for their mutation rate.  Plugging in a lower mutation rate modifies your probability some - but that really doesn't change the outcome very much.  More importantly - statistics is a study of large quantities and when applied to a specific - such as two results - it is being used in a potentially misleading way.    The real issue is to keep a realization that the probabilities are not precision when applied to a specific situation.

As example - my uncle and I are 41/43.  Statistics say that we have less than a 1% chance of being related in our 1.5 generations of separation.  Family information clearly says we are related - as do appearance and mannerism.  Additionally - we know where both mutations originated through "overtesting" of my family.  My father started one of the two mutations and I started the other.   Therefore, I have no concern about claiming my grandfather as our most recent common ancestor - despite the very low statistical probability. 

In contrast, Richard Barton and we do not share a common paper trail any later than c1620s.  But - Richard and my uncle are perfect 43/43 matches.  One looking at only statistics would conclude that Richard and my uncle are more closely related than my uncle and I. 

All that quibbling aside - the 67/67 match certainly supports your conclusions drawn from traditional research and paper trails. 

Good luck with research - and in connecting your families

Terry,

Thank you for your comments.   I used statistics in my work (a long time ago) and I somewhat believe in the saying 'there are statistics and there are  lies'.   Unfortunately we can never be certain, as your example of your uncle and your 1620 ancestor show.

Thank you for your interest.
