Status summary

Completed as of March 23, 2021:

  • Recruiting additional direct male-line Arthur Hathaway descendants for further SNP testing - anyone interested in submitting their DNA for testing should contact Raymond T. Wing (email: wing.genealogist AT gmail DOT com)

Still to do as of March 23, 2021

  • NGS/WGS test multiple descendants of Arthur Hathaway to firmly place family clade as well as test descendants to discover any subclades unique to descendants lines

DNA results R-BY94849

Previous Y-DNA testing

The Wilcox DNA Project Group: R-M269 Edward and Susan Thomson Wilcox Family documents a number of Y-DNA descendants with matching Y-STR & Y-SNP results, with an earliest Most Distant Known Paternal Ancestor (MDKPA) being Daniel Wilcox (c1565-1605).

NGS Results

Several of the project members above have apparently taken Big Y tests and they have been assigned to the following haplogroup: R-P312>Z290>L21>DF13>ZZ10_1>Z253>FGC3268>ZZ6_1>BY43439>L554>BY65903>BY94849
