Paternal relationship is confirmed through Y-chromosome DNA testing. Robert Elmore and Esco Elmer match on 36 out of 37 markers (see FTDNA kits 364027 and 369990) thereby confirming their direct paternal lines back to their MRCA Edward Elmer.
Big Y and YSEQ testing of descendants of Edward's sons Edward represented here by Esco Elmer and Samuel represented here by Robert Elmore have shown that men related to Edward Elmer carry Y SNPs R-A2276, R-A2278, R-A2280, R-A2281 and R-A2283 as family level SNPs.
