DNA Notes


  • Paternal relationship is confirmed through Y-chromosome DNA testing. Peter Kingman and John Kingman match on 37 out of 37 markers (see YSearch IDs D8NMD and KFTAS) thereby confirming their direct paternal lines back to their MRCA Henry Kingman (born 1701). John and Peter are 6th cousins.
  • Paternal relationship is confirmed by a 49.0 cM Family Finder match between John Kingman GEDmatch T782948 and his second cousin once removed Patricia J. Cook GEDmatch A447130. Their MRCA is Isaac Henry Kingman. Patricia is the daughter of Dorothy Johnstone and Daniel Catey. (See Dorothy's profile.)
  • Paternal relationship is confirmed by a 74.0 cM Family Finder match between John Kingman GEDmatch T782948 and his second cousin once removed, George Case GEDmatch T699340. Their MRCA is William Abraham Crocker.
  • Y-chromosome DNA testing confirms that Gerald Kingman and John Kingman most likely share a direct patrilineal ancestor in a genealogical time frame. Their results match on 33 out of 37 markers (see YSearch IDs YUH8Z and KFTAS). No MRCA has yet been determined as John's ancestral line terminates with Henry Kingman who emigrated from England to America in 1634 and is thought to be of Frome, Somerset, England, and the Gerald's terminates with George Kingman and probably extends to John Kingman born c1640 in Frome, Somerset, England.
  • Also see Derrick Watson's Kingman of Somerset DNA results analysis.


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 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)[5] Of course this is a mathematical take and does not account for cousins marrying cousins, etc.

For another take on how much common ancestry we might share, check out this awesome article by Graham Cooper.

DNA Tested
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. Y-chromosome DNA test-takers in his direct paternal line on WikiTree:
  • John Kingman: Family Tree DNA Y-DNA Test 37 markers, haplogroup R-BY1823, Ysearch KFTAS, FTDNA kit #N145956 + Y-Chromosome Test 15000 markers, haplogroup R-CTS12058, Ysearch KFTAS
  • Peter Kingman : Y-Chromosome Test 37 markers, haplogroup R-P312, Ysearch D8NMD
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
  • John Kingman: Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test HVR1 and HVR2, haplogroup J1c5, Mitosearch KTFAS, FTDNA kit #N145956
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with John:

Hi John, I just wanted to say "Congratulations" on becoming one of the newest Red Badged "Generous Genealogist"! Your patience and expertise was so appreciated especially working with fixing profile entries dealing with DNA results. We need more WikiTreers like yourself especially as Data Doctors!! Keep up the good work.

Replying to your question on John Berry's page (Berry-2713), the explanation of the indirect evidence is contained in Note NI4107 on this page,, extracted from S102.

Pettus-320 Walker Pettus, is a DNA y intercept from William Walker Pettus IV with me. We intercept above Pettus-320, according to the book he wrote on the Pettus lines. Again...I'm not sure what to do here, after about 8 generations, Y is the only good beyond, provided there is sourcing....

Pettus-316 (DNA confirmation). I'm not sure what you mean about errors. my family group has autosomal hits at Pettus-60 with other intercepts. In addition, my Y, according to William Pettus IV's book, intercepts others above Pettus not sure what to do.

Thanks for being patient with me. You keep finding problems with the way I am writing up my "confirmed by DNA" triangulations. I am trying to improve that.

John, I found two living, historically proven descendants of James Fleming 1760 through two different sons. I descend through a third. all three of our yDNA match. That is the strongest evidence one can find.

Third time is a charm! I did see the example was based on a third cousin relationship but did not take that to mean that the same process was not applicable to a triangulated relationship. And I had read the instructions on triangulation carefully (I believed) several times in the past but somehow did not catch the parenthetical. Thank you for pointing it out. I also changed the privacy settings on the other two to show their trees and Relationship Finder can now be used even in public mode. Finally, this conversation helped me identify that one of the three was traced back slightly incorrectly.

Thank you again for your patience and your help in improving the confirmation. I will check my others (they are all via triangulation) to correct this potential error.

Hi again John,

In your follow up to Gentry-327 on my profile page, you state: "If the parents are the common ancestral couple, neither can be confirmed. " But the WikiTree Confirmation Example (included in the link you provided on DNA Confirmation (at states the opposite. It says "In most cases cousins share two most-recent common ancestors: a father and mother in an ancestral couple. In these cases, the relationships to both parents can be marked as Confirmed with DNA. "

And, although I appreciate your formatting suggestions, I use the exact formatting provided in the DNA Confirmation link you provide. Not trying to be difficult, but it sounds like a difference in what your group is trying to do and the official WT guidance.

Hi John,

You posted on the public profile of Gentry-327 (David Gentry), that the profile was giving DB errors for DNA confirmation and that the relationship was not noted according to guidelines. However, the relationship is marked according to guidelines. The sources section notes the triangulation (which is used beyond third cousins -- in this case it is 4th cousins twice removed to 6th cousins). It appears to be marked correctly. Please provide further guidance if you think there is a technical issue.
