Jane on FamilySearch



A fully triangulated match of 18-20 cMs from 67 - 87 mbp exists on chr 3 between two descendants of Simon and Jane (third cousins, one from son John, A965323 the other from son Gib, T087062) and a descendant (4C1R to the other two) of Jane's newfound sister Ann, A560086
More matches needed to determine if the inherited DNA is from her father William Gipson or mother Mary Hanham [8]
