John Anthony Kingman was born in 1943 in Los Angeles, California. He is the son of Paul Henry Kingman and Cecile (Babst) Kingman.[1]

John married Drena Flynn in Los Angeles, CA, in 1968. They have two daughters.[1]

  1. April Anne
  2. Kelly Elizabeth

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.[1]

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 8th possible great grandfathers, but John's surname and Y-DNA came only from him.

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 Patricia J. Cook GEDmatch A447130. Their MCRA is Isaac Henry Kingman.
  • 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.
  • Paternal relationship is confirmed by a 42.6 cM Family Finder match between John Kingman and his third cousin, Nancy Case. 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)[4]

  • 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

Welcome to the DNA Project:

Please make sure each bit of DNA test information is added to the actual test participant's profile, not someone else's like your own. To make cousin connections, WikiTree needs to see the FamilyTree tab. Check that your Privacy on your profile is set to "Private with Public Family Tree" as a minimum. (Living minors should have an Unlisted privacy level.)

If you have not already done so, please set your preferences for your Tags Followed to include DNA and other terms of interest to you:
