Status summary

As of December 30, 2015:

  • No straightforward opportunities for advanced Y-DNA testing
  • Low priority

Summary of findings

It would appear that there are no known direct patrilineal descendants of Degory Priest, since his two known children (Marah and Sarah) were both female.

Still, there remains the opportunity for characterizing his Y-DNA through descendants of other paternal relatives. Even so, such a link would likely be tenuous since it would seem that the identity of Degory Priest's relatives in England carries some uncertainty.

To do

  • Additional paper-trail research might allow additional Y-DNA testing candidates to be identified
