DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with James or other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA. Y-chromosome DNA test-takers in his direct paternal line on WikiTree:
  • James Applegate: Family Tree DNA Y-DNA Test 67 markers, haplogroup R-L562, FTDNA kit #N90964, MitoYDNA ID T11349 [compare]
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
  • James Applegate: Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test Full Sequence, haplogroup T2b15, FTDNA kit #N90964
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with James:

Hi James

It's time for a One Name Studies Project check-in!

Could you please advise me which One Name Studies you're still actively coordinating, i.e. maintaining the main study page and associated research pages, and replying to queries/comments from members.

You can respond to this message by posting a reply below or sending me a private message on WikiTree. I look forward to hearing from you!

If I don’t receive your response within the next three weeks, I’ll assume that your interests have changed or you are no longer able to coordinate any One Name Studies, and you'll be removed from the project.

Hi James, a couple of weeks ago I sent out a check-in for the US Civil War Project, this is just a quick reminder to let me know if you intend to remain in the Project. Hope to hear from you soon. I'll assume your not interested if I don't hear back from you by the end of February. Thank you.

Hi James, I just wanted to thank you for all the work you've done to improve the US Civil War Between the States Project. I'm doing a check-in with all project members and wanted to verify that you're still interested in being a member of the project. Also, any suggestions for the Project would be welcome. I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

P Kreutzer, US Civil War Between the States Project Leader.

The Global Cemeteries Project is currently undergoing our member check-in and wanted to verify that you are still active and interested in being a member of the project. Are you currently assigned to or working with one of our Cemetery Teams? If not, is there a particular Team or area you are interested in participating with? I would be delighted to help you get setup in one or more of our collaborative teams!

We use Google Groups for internal project collaboration, so if you are not yet setup for access feel free to submit a join request and we will get that approved as quick as possible. We also ask that members check their follwed tags to make sure you are following the correct project tag (CEMETERIES) so you don't miss any disucssions in G2G.

Last, but not least, we would like to thank you for all of your contributions to WikiTree and let you konw that any ideas or suggestions for improvement you may have for the Global Cemeteries Project would greatly appreciated!

I look forward to hearing form you soon!

I am a descendant of Hendrick Coleman and Anna, through their first child, Anna. By submitting my DNA raw data to GedMatch, I found that I have American Indian ancestry, but not enough to show up as ancestry on the standard 23andme, Ancestry, FTDNA or MyHeritage services that I belong to. As I have discovered no other early Colonial ancestors who I suspect had a Native American spouse, it seems very likely that Anna was the reason for the American Indian results on GedMatch.

James, could you edit your profile to change the link to category to?

That will resolve an.other error in the category tree. Thank you

posted by Doug McCallum UE

I sent you a PM about your DNA category "Y-DNA_haplogroup_R-Z51/L562" but received no response. There is a syntax error in the name. The forward slash needs to be removed so the category needs to be renamed.

Thank you, Doug McCallum

Hi James,

We sent you a message a while ago about your current status as Project Coordinator and have not yet heard back from you. If we don’t hear from you in the next week we will assume you no longer wish to continue as a Project Coordinator on WikiTree at this time, but you are welcome to get back in touch with your Project Leaders to have your badge reinstated.

Many thanks,

Susie and Eowyn

Hi James,

I’m working with Eowyn to check-in with everyone holding the Project Coordinator badge to make sure we have the most up-to-date information. As a Project Coordinator badge holder, please can you let me know which project(s) you are currently coordinating and if you have a specific role as coordinator in those projects?

Many thanks,

Hi James,

We have not heard back from you about the Global Cemeteries Project so assume you do not wish to continue in the project at this time. Thank you for all the contributions you have made; we are sorry to see you go. You are most welcome to rejoin at any time via the G2G sign up post.

Susie :-)

Leader, Global Cemeteries Project

posted by Susie MacLeod
Hi James,

We’ve made some exciting changes to the Global Cemeteries Project. The sub-projects have been merged into the Global Project to help with Leadership and to facilitate collaboration.

Some roles within the project have changed. From now on, there are Project Coordinators for each continent, and one for Welcome and Integration, plus Team Leaders for each individual Country etc.

Please let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project, if you’d like to continue in an existing role, and which team(s) you’d like to be on. Please also give me your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group.

Many thanks,


Leader, Global Cemeteries

James, could you please address the question I posted on Heromansen-1?
posted by Ellen Smith
Hi James, you posted on Mary Ester (Unknown?) Applegate's profile a while back. She's attached as a daughter of Hendrick Coleman. I'm not seeing any records for that relationship. She is not in his will. Do you have any records for her being a Coleman? Thank you!
posted by H Husted
I removed the NNS project from that Speck profile. It showed her as the wife of a Settler, but with no sources or details. Good catch!
