It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Moses by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
Y-chromosome DNA test-takers in his direct paternal line on WikiTree:
Barnes-16582 and Barnes-3615 appear to represent the same person because: same name, exact same spouse on both profiles, same birth year and location, same death date and location. thank you for reviewing
Barnes-16582 (Moses Barnes) and Barnes-3615 do not represent the same person because there could well be multiple Moses Barnes, these are not the same people. Barnes-3615 is the executor of his father Brinsley, not Elijah's 1825 Estill Co. Kentucky estate settlement. There are no sources in Barnes-16582 of the Elijah who it is claimed to be his father that shows a father-son relationship.
I seriously question the creation of this profile at least as a descendant through the lines of Brinsley II and Brinsley, Sr. It would imply that they are related to a British line which they are not. There is nothing in this profile supporting a father-son relationship between Moses and Elijah both of which are common names. Noneone in Brinsley's line ever set foot in Northampton, Co., NC. Also, Moses is listed as the executor in the 1825 Estill Co., settlement of the estate of his father Brinsley who died earlier.
Based on a child's DOB, this profile should have a Privacy level of Open (white background, more than 200 years old), not Public (green background). Making this profile Open will correct a database error.
