I love the concept of YDNA, however so far it is proving fairly not being what I need. My son at 37 markers has zero matches unless it takes time for them to find them and my partner the closest match is 400 years ago in Germany with different last names..
However my nephews came in today on the Wheeler side and he had 3 matches! 2 of which I can place, 1 which has a different last name of Woods. This was done in the hopes of sorting out who is the father of John Wheeler,
Ancestry wants to make Joseph Wheeler his father. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Wheeler-119
We have DNA matches through Ancestry thru lines on several children which are Eleanor, Elizabeth, John and , Phebe
And I am consistently finding family matches for Joseph and Maria in my tree that descend from siblings of John.
Joseph's tree supports the children of Eleanor, Elizabeth, John and Phebe.
So it seems all good,
However the John listed under Joseph is deffinitely not my John. If it weren't for that connection I wouldn't doubt. and connect them.
I've been looking through Joseph's WikiTree listed descendants to see if I can find any likely candidates that I could pay to take the YDNA test to assist but nothing jumps out at me.
So if there are any other Wheelers on here that match the J-M172 I'd be eternally grateful to talk..
I also did do join the Wheeler YDNA group
