John has lived in West Los Angeles, CA, Raleigh, NC, Boulder, CO, Brookfield Center, CT, and since 1982 has lived in Austin, TX. All of these moves were made while John worked for IBM. John joined IBM in 1967 and retired from IBM in 1997.
John is a direct patrilineal 8th great grandson of Henry Kingman the first Kingman to emigrate from England to America in 1634-5. Note that Henry was just one of John's 512 possible 8th great grandfathers, but John's surname and Y-DNA came only from him.
<1> Jane (Allen) Bulkeley is a descendant of Magna Carta Surety Barons and her children emigrated to America after she died (e.g., Edward Bulkeley); see her profile for more information.
<2> This Magna Carta Gateway Ancestor is in the process of being confirmed.
<3> This Magna Carta Gateway Ancestor is unconfirmed and may be erroneous.
Paternal relationship is confirmed through Y-chromosome DNA testing. Peter Kingman, YSearch ID D8NMD, and John Kingman, FTDNA kit #N145956, YSearch ID KFTAS, match on 37 out of 37 markers thereby confirming their patrilineal lines back to their Most Recent Common Ancestor, Henry Kingman (born 1701). John and Peter are 6th cousins (click to see the relationship).
Paternal relationship is confirmed with a GEDmatch autosomal test match between John Kingman GEDmatch T782948 and his second cousin Patricia J. (Catey) Cook GEDmatch A447130. Their MRCAs are their great-grandparents Isaac Henry Kingman and Annie Elizabeth (Crocker) Kingman. Estimated number of generations to MRCA = 2.8 based on sharing 279.2 cM across 11 segments. Largest segment = 49.0 cM. Patricia is the daughter of Dorothy Johnstone and Daniel Catey. (See Dorothy's profile.)
Paternal relationship is confirmed with a GEDmatch autosomal test match between John Kingman, GEDmatch T782948, and his second cousin once removed, George Case, GEDmatch T699340. Their MRCAs are William Abraham Crocker and Jane (Harpham) Crocker, grandparents of George and second great grandparents of John. Estimated number of generations to MRCA = 3.3 based on sharing 156.7 cM across 6 segments. Largest segment = 74.0 cM
Y-chromosome DNA test matching confirms that Gerald Kingman, FTDNA kit #214925, YSearch ID YUH8Z, and John Kingman, FTDNA kit #N145956, YSearch ID KFTAS, most likely share a direct patrilineal ancestor in a genealogical time frame. Their results match on 33 out of 37 markers. FTDNA estimates the probability that Gerald and John share a common ancestor within the last 16 generations is 78%, and within the last 20 generations is 91%. No MRCA has yet been determined as John's patrilineal line terminates with Henry Kingman (1594-1667) who emigrated from England to Massachusetts in 1634/5 and is said to be of Frome, Somerset, and Gerald's patrilineal line terminates with George Kingman (1701-1748) of Farrington Gurney, Somerset, and probably extends to John Kingman born c1640 in Frome, Somerset.
Maternal relationship is confirmed with a GEDmatch autosomal test match between John Kingman, GEDmatch T782948, and his first cousin once removed Penelope Babst, GEDmatch M947987. Their MRCAs are Elmer Cleveland Babst and Myrtle May (Vessey) Babst, John's grandparents and Penelope's great grandparents. Estimated number of generations to MRCA = 2.5 based on sharing 442.2 cM across 21 matching segments. Largest segment = 59.0 cM.
Maternal relationship is confirmed with a GEDmatch autosomal test match between John Kingman GEDmatch T782948 and his second cousin once removed Kelly Miller GEDmatch A721343. Their MRCAs are Charles Cyrus Babst and Martha (Lanning) Babst, John's great grandparents and Kelly's second great grandparents. Estimated number of generations to MRCA = 4.1 based on sharing 46.4 cM across 4 segments. Largest segment = 17.3 cM
A maternal DNA relationship is pending confirmation between John Kingman and his fourth cousin once removed Denny Brooks who have a 57 cM match on Family FInder with a longest block of 14. Another cousin with matching DNA who is descended from Joseph Brooks or his ancestor is needed to provide confirmation via DNA triangulation.
For an idea of how much each of your ancestors contributed to your genetic makeup (excluding your X and Y chromosomes), consider that you have 30,000 genes. Your mother and father each contributed 50% of their genes (15,000) to you. Since the number of ancestors you have doubles each generation you go back, you could potentially have 2,048 different ninth great-grandparents. If so, the genes you have in common with of each of them would be less than 0.05% of your genetic makeup (about 15 genes out of 30,000) Of course this is a mathematical take and does not account for cousins marrying cousins, etc.
It may seem morbid, but in the event of my demise I want to be sure that none of my hard work on WikiTree ends up being deleted. While I fully intend on being around to manage all my profiles for a very long time, in the event of my incapacitation or death I hereby give permission for the management of all of my private profiles to be transferred to the following WikiTreers, whether or not they are currently on my Trusted Lists.
John Kingman's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with John or other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA.

thanks for your note John. The new changes in Europe have me scrambling a bit. I'm the main Admin for the Grant DNA Project so I have access to tons of info, and Theron Grant was a gr-grandfather so I have even more on his line. Anyway, I'll try to update these pages in the near future. We have at least 6 testers so I'm dealing with facts (thankfully). Cheers.
I also received the message about not confirming DNA, but the fact is I have been off line for a very long time and have just been able to get into my account. In my opinion John YOU need to verify your information before pointing fingers so to speak.
Second cousin once removed is equivalent to third cousins--please reread the wikitree DNA pages. And please stop posting these notes on profiles, sending a pm to the profile manager would be more appropriate. The fact that so many have posted negative comments on your page regarding this posting should be indicative of a need to desist. Thank you and have a nice day :)
You made a comment on William Moutrey's page about the proper way to confirm my relationship with him using dna. I entered dna information back in 2013 and do not why that confirmation is there. Would you give me directions fo find where I can edit and add dna information? That would be a great help.
received a notice that I was not to " mark a parent as DNA confirmed without showing your work. You can see what is required under the DNA Confirmation topic of WikiTree's Help pages." I have added DNA to myself and my husband according to the instructions from Wikitree but have not connected it to any one else. So if its there it not by my doing.
I did not add the confirmed DNA on John Hyden, I do not know how to remove it, but I do have 3 confirmed Matches to descendants of John Hyden. My Nicese and 2 distant cousins. But thank you for the information. Oh and had no idea that we are 18th cousins 1x removed.
