Group 4 Anglins




Summary of Participants

All of the people in Group 4 are obviously closely related, and all of the participants in Group 4 are descended from James Anglin, who was in Augusta County, Virginia, in 1755; later lived in North Carolina; and then moved to Wilkes County, Georgia, where he died in 1778. We have descendants of each of the sons James named in his will:

Summary of Findings


Mutations and Lineages

We know the haplotypes of everyone whose name is in dark blue, with the following caveat concerning James's son William. Although we have established Thomas B. Anglin's haplotype absolutely by having tested descendants of two of his sons, we have no documents naming his father, so we have to rely on the fact that a descendant of a known son of William's has the mutation DYS458=16 that Thomas B Anglin had. There is a chance of error here because we have tested only a descendant of one known son of William, which leaves open a slight possibility that A24's mutation DYS458=16 is a parallel mutation which occurred in a later generation rather than a mutation inherited from William. We can and should eliminate this uncertainty by testing a different known son of William in order to establish William's haplotype without doubt. Nevertheless, I have revised the charts to show Thomas B. Anglin as a son of William, because it is reasonably probable.

Where there are no mutations noted anywhere in the line, each person in the line has the ancestral haplotype (i.e. the same haplotype as the patriarch James). Where we don't know where mutations occurred, I have placed them at the bottom of the line, except for those mutations shared by A21 and A15, where we have narrowed it down to two possible generations in which any one or two or three of the mutations could have occurred. Where it is unknown where a mutation occurred, in order to establish that, we would need to start by testing a descendant of a brother of the top person in the line whose name is in light blue. So in A5's line, we would need to test a descendant of a brother of Henry's son James. And in A21's and A15's line, we would need to test a descendant of a brother of Peter. In A24's line, we would need to test a descendant of a known brother of C. John Anglin.

We can also see from this chart where we need to branch out more. We have descendants from only one son of James's son John, and from only one son of James's son David.
