Completed as of October 10, 2020:
- Recruiting direct male-line descendants of Thomas Taber for 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 October 10, 2020
- NGS/WGS test descendants of Thomas Taber to discover their subclade as well as possible descendants lines.
Thomas Taber was born Yarmouth before Feb 1645/6 son of Philip Taber and Lydia Masters. He died at Dartmouth 11 Nov 1720. He married Dartmouth 2 Jun 1672 Mary Thomson. They had eleven children; five daughters and six sons (Joseph, Thomas, John, Jacob, Jonathan and Philip)
Previous Y-DNA testing
Family Tree DNA currently does not have a Taber or Tabor surname DNA Project, but lists 59 Taber tests and 97 Tabor tests
Further needed testing
We would need more Y-DNA descendants of Thomas Taber to take NGS/WGS tests to pin down the haplogroup, as well as possibly define subclades for various branches of the family.
