DNA Results R1b-FT266024
The Smith Connections of the Northeast Group: R1b-NE08 Ralph Smith has eight individuals with a Most Distant Known Paternal Ancestor (MDKPA) being Ralph Smith (father of Samuel). Two of these individuals descend from Samuel Smith and one individual has a Big Y test which documents their line falls under Haplogroup: R1b-U106>Z2265>BY30097>S12025>FGC12021>S17339>FGC53777>S25007>FGC31905>FGC31914>FT266024
NGS/WGS testing of other known Ralph Smith Y-DNA descendants (especially through son Samuel) would refine the haplogroup for the family and possibly define subclades for descendants.
