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:
- 2 descendants of John (A20 and A39);
- 1 descendant of David (A16);
- 5 descendants of Henry (A5, A15, A21, A47, A65, and A71);
- 4 descendant of William (A24, A30, A62, and A67).
Summary of Findings
- James is unrelated to his fellow colonial Virginians, William and Adrian.
- Daniel Benjamin Anglin, born about 1806 in Georgia, is not descended from James, as many had thought, but from Adrian.
- A39 matched Group 4's ancestral haplotype on all 37 markers, so he was clearly descended from James, but
we were unable to find the line from his great, great grandfather to James. Johnny Anglin has kindly filled in the gaps for us,
and A39 fits nicely now. Many thanks to Johnny for his help.
- Thomas B. Anglin, born about 1798 in Georgia, and married to Edith Culver, is a descendant of James. Thomas was almost
certainly the brother of David W. Anglin, who was born about 1797 in Georgia and was married to Edith Culver's sister Sarah. One was bondsman for the other's marriage, and
each named his first-born son after the other.
Since we have results from descendants of two different sons of Thomas B. Anglin, we know that Thomas B. Anglin had the mutation DYS458=16, just as A24, the descendant of James's son William has.
That raises the inference that Thomas B. Anglin was also a son of James's son William. A62's results make it more likely that the DYS458=16 was inherited from Thomas B. Anglin, and was
not just a parallel mutation. Until, however, we test a descendant of another son of the patriarch James's son William besided A24's ancestor, C. John Anglin, we don't know
for sure whether A24's mutation DYS458=16 was inherited from William, or whether it was a parallel mutation which occurred later in A24's line, so we really need to get that
testing done. In the meantime, I am showing Thomas B. Anglin as a son of William with the caveat that we need the testing mentioned above to be double-dog sure that's correct.
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.
- a descendant of a brother of A24's ancestor C. John Anglin;
- a descendant David W. Anglin, born about 1797 in Georgia;
- a descendant of a brother of A5's ancestor James (son of Henry);
- a descendant of a brother of A39's and A20's ancestor John;
- a descendant of a brother of A16's ancestor David (son of James);
This is a bare-bones chart; it shows only the lines of the participants
in this group whose connection to James is known.
