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 at  The pedigree will then be posted on the Surname Project's Patriarchs Page by or sent to the Project’s Administrator.

Please include the following:  (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)
•       Name of project

•       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 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.

Hi, Frederick.  I posted your pedigree on the Patriarch page.  I notice that Benjamin and Pleasant have the same birth year, so listed them as brothers.  Is that correct?  Hope you'll join the DNA project if you haven't already.

Hi, keithmc.  I posted the first 2 generations of your pedigree (we don't usually post birthdates after 1910 for privacy reasons).  Good luck with your research.

I've not had much opportunity to research my past in great detail, though my grandfather, Earl Henry Jorgensen, Jr., did give me a handful of pedigree research papers.  I happened upon this website while researching.  I am the proud father of a new daughter and I wanted her to someday have this information as well.  Pulling from the information here (I copied this from one of the previous posts on this page), this is where I fit into the picture (I've never done this before, so I am probably placing the data in wrong):

.................      +Earl Henry Jorgensen (Jr.)   1923 -
................         Cynthia Jean Jorgensen   1948 -
...................        +Christian Avery Bryant 1971 -
.....................         Amber Frances Bryant 2007 -

( Thanks to Abbottschild for filling in the blanks!  And, I guess I have a lot to learn about family tress and pedigree ;) )

Hi Chris,

Got your private email, and yes, we are cousins. Wanted to reply here in case another person comes along and makes a connection as you forgot to state that Margaret Jean's mother Mary Jane is an Arthur:

William (Arters) Arthur  born 1770
Friend Davidson Arthur  born 1805
Christopher Columbus Arthur born 1837
William "Sherman" Arthur born 1867
Mary Jane Arthur-Cook born 1902
Margaret Jean Cook born 1926
Cynthia Jean Jorgensen born 1948
Christan Avery Bryant born 1971
Amber Frances Bryant born 2007 (congratulations :)

Mary Jane was the daughter of Wm. "Sherman" Arthur and Ella Cooper of Gallia County, Ohio.  Your grandmother, Margaret Jean Cook-Jorgensen was my second cousin. I'll have much to share with you and your daughter!

Debra Abbott-Leonard

I am Barbara Arthur LeRoy, and have been researching since 1978.  The Arthur line is most perplexing, because I can only go back to 1831.  My grandfather said that our immigrant ancestor, Samuel Arthur, came from England and floated down the Ohio River to Indiana, where he had a son named Samuel, the first ancestor I can document.  Grandfather also stated that Samuel married a lady from New York state--and this is verified by the 1880 census information on my Samuel b. 1831.  All persons on this pedigree, including my father, are deceased.

Samuel Arthur b. 3 Sept. 1831 in IN; m. Sarah Jane Graves 4 Dec. 1851 in Morgan Co IL; d. 22 Aug 1898 in Lane, DeWitt Co IL; occupation: blacksmith

James W. Arthur b. 3 Oct 1858 in Manchester, Scott Co IL; m. Minnie Elizabeth Lane 5 Nov 1893 in Logan Co IL; d. 31 Mar 1917 in a coal mining accident in Lincoln, Logan Co IL

Ralph Lane Arthur b. 25 Sept. 1894 in Lincoln, Logan Co IL; m. Ruby Katherine Weaver 23 Apr. 1916 in Lincoln, Logan Co IL; d.23 Jul 1979 in Urbana, Champaign Co IL

Evan Wayne Arthur b. 21 Feb 1917 in Lincoln, Logan Co IL; m1 Frances Louise Blome 8 Aug 1940 in Kenney, DeWitt Co IL; m2 Eleanor Jackson ca. 1960; m3 Frances ; d. 4 Aug 1983 in Oklahoma City, OK

My email is

I have just purchased a DNA kit for my brother to use in hopes we can find out about our immigrant ancestor.  The kit number is 202382
