Status summary

Completed as of October 1, 2020:

  • Recruiting additional direct male-line Young 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)
  • Y-SNP tested to .

Still to do as of August 29, 2020

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


First Generation

Thomas Young was born in Scituate 5 Nov 1663, son of George Young and Hannah Pincin. Thomas died at Scituate 25 Dec 1732. He married Scituate in Jan 1688/9 to Sarah White. They had nine children; one daughter and eight sons (George, Joseph [died young], Thomas [died young], Thomas, Joseph, Ebenezer and Joshua)

DNA results R-S23189

Previous Y-DNA testing

Young DNA Project Subgroup R1b-M269 Group 4 has four males tested. One has Y-SNP tested to R1b-U106>>Z381>Z301>L48 and has also done Y-STR 111 testing. Plugging in the 111 STR results into the Haplogroup Predictor (set for R1b clades) gives a 100% probability of it falling under L48>S23189.

Further needed testing

We need additional direct male-line descendants of Thomas Young to WGS/NGS test to both confirm the lineage as well as to refine the haplogroup further and delineate descendant clades.
