Hi, I'm part of a group looking for living descendants of Edward Elmer/Elmore, one of the founders of Hartford Connecticut. We have two Elmers and two Elmores from various branches of Edward's tree tested and would like to get a few men from each of Edward's sons tested to try to determine what lines some of our unknown Elmers fit into. Do you know of any living Elmer/Elmore men descended from Edward's son, Edward2, who would be interested in a free Y test? Thanks very much. Peg Simons

Hubbard Simms Elmore is the 7 x grandson of Edward Elmore by way of his son Samuel and the last of this generation in the male line. He has three living sons  Jose Hubbard, Robert Steve and Paul Richard. I am referring you to Robert, my husband, he is interested in hearing more about your study. There are three males in the ninth generation by Jose, son Zachary and Robert's two sons Allen and Robert spencer. A tenth generation is also present in Allen Elmore's family ( michale and Jude)

Hubbard's brothers have two living sons. Howard Jerome III and Mark Elmore. There are no further males in their lineage.

What a great thing to post on G2G! By tagging it with "elmer" and "elmore", Margaret is enabling this to be seen on http://www.wikitree.com/genealogy/ELMORE and through Google searches.

Does Edward Elmore have a WikiTree profile? If so, I might also recommend:

#1.) Posting a comment on his profile.

#2.) Clicking to his DNA Descendants page. It will show if he has any known descendants who are carrying his Y-chromosome.

But I see from the other answer that just the G2G question worked. That's great.

Another variation of the name is Aylmer. Although a bit obscure these days, there are still a few of them around. If you figured a unique SNP to the Elmer family, you could cost effectively test numerous people for the price of a 37 marker test. Good luck.
