DNA Confirmation Statement
Paternal relationship is confirmed through Y-chromosome DNA testing. Marvin Lester Fleming, Relative Genetics kit #16530, and his 5th cousin once removed, Anonymous1 Fleming Relative Genetics kit #840987, son of Clarence Fleming, match at a Genetic Distance of 1 on 43 markers thereby confirming their direct paternal lines back to their MRCA Samuel Fleming 1720 IRE. TMRCA calculation indicates that the probability the two share a common ancestor approximately 95% within the last 11.4 generations.
Paternal relationship is confirmed through Y-chromosome DNA testing. Marvin Lester Fleming, Relative Genetics kit #16530, and his 6th cousin, Timothy Tooke Fleming, match at a Genetic Distance of 0 on 43 markers thereby confirming their direct paternal lines back to their MRCA Samuel Fleming 1720 IRE. TMRCA calculation indicates that the probability the two share a common ancestor approximately 95% within the last 7.4 generations.

TMRCA calculation indicates that the probability the two share a common ancestor approximately 95% within the last 14.7 generations.
Marvin Lester Fleming tested in the (now discontinued) Relative Genetics yDNA Fleming study. He was a 6 MRCA predicted match with Anonymous1 Fleming, also a documented descendant of Samuel Fleming 1720 through James Fleming 1743. They are calculated to be fifth cousins once removed with Samuel Fleming 1720 determined to be their most recent common ancestor. Another close match is Timothy Tooke Fleming, a descendant of Samuel Fleming 1720 through William Fleming 1750. He is calculated to be a sixth cousin to Marvin Lester Fleming with Samuel Fleming 1720 calculated as their most recent common ancestor. His haplogroup is I1a (now I-M253), which matches the haplogroup of participants of the other Relative Genetics yDNA Fleming study participants who were also documented to be direct patrilineal descendants of Samuel Fleming 1720 through sons James Fleming 1743 and William Fleming 1750.
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Samuel 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:
John you are supposed to put the very detailed documentation of your line in the WikiTree profile of your ancestors. Not leave a message that it’s there yet no one can view it. I have a subscription to AncestryDNA as well. I stated I am working on this line. There is documentation through Family lines. It is weak as I have previously stated but just because you want me to detach doesn’t mean I will. There is no delete only detach. Your continued messaging isn’t going to make me move any faster. If you were really that concerned you would be finding sources instead of ....non stop messaging. I probably will detach the parents but I am researching it first. As I previously stated there are family lines listed in my source that state them as parents. That is really weak but all the other information on them has been correct so I’m wondering if it’s not me that is missing a source and I am researching...
I pointed the Fleming’s (in your line) out not as a merge but as an example that you did not site a reference at the time that You posted it. I never proposed a merge for them so how can you Un propose a merge that’s never been proposed.
John Fleming, Jr. your Fleming’s have no sources (not even one) on Fleming-6123 and Fleming-6122. Charles had several links to local family histories.
They are not ideal but they are there. As always I am trying to improve on them.
“the pot calling the kettle black.”
I guess we should detach both of yours? I would not.
I could have found another source in the time that it took to write all of this down.:(. You too.
