First, a second apology, Jeffrey. I am the very last person to ask about what is and isn't pro forma WikiTree "Confirmed with DNA" policy or citations. So I'll have to leave WikiTree compliance to someone else.
But the xDNA issue has continued to bother me. So much so that I took a break today (while munching on kung pao chicken carry-out with one hand) and did some snooping.
Quick flashback review: The issue is Betty Frances Reed-11369's father, William Frank Reed. The only source for his single, haploid X chromosome was his mother, Rebecca Dean. He had no Reed-line xDNA at all to contribute to Betty, which are the only relationship paths currently shown on WikiTree. William's xDNA could have come only from his mother, Rebecca, and in turn hers could have come only from her paternal grandmother, and her maternal grandmother and grandfather (William Hall and Elizabeth Courtney).
Likewise, Jeffrey's mother's xDNA can only have come from Minerva Lowe, William Carder, and Amanda Clelland. The amounts of xDNA sharing aren't huge, but they're too sizable to be a testing error. The segments are almost certainly valid.
This is not yet documented on WikiTree and, very important, I've done no sourcing or analysis on the relationships. I'm just tossing this out there as a possibility for research...because it would explain that troubling xDNA sharing:
Jeffrey > Private Mother > Mildred Reed > Anna Ellen Carder > Amanda Clelland (4 Dec 1837 - 24 Apr 1888) > James Clelland III (Clelland-168) and Mary Nixon (Nixon-2136)
Betty Frances Reed > Eunice Anne Scranage > Miranda Jane Clelland (18 Nov 1839 - 7 Dec 1878) > James Clelland III and Mary Nixon
If correct, the MRCA couple for the xDNA sharing between Jeffrey and his mother to Betty Frances Reed would be Jeffrey's 3g-grandparents, James Clelland III and Mary Nixon, via their two daughters, Amanda and Miranda.
May not be accurate, but I'm betting it will turn out to be. Enough so that I can now concentrate on the work I'm supposed to be doing...
Edited: How could I have left out Mildred L. Reed?
