My father was born in east Tennessee, and many of my ancestors lived in the colonial South. All of my ancestors immigrated to the US before 1800 from England, Germany, France, Scotland, and Ireland.
Karen Tobo's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Karen or other
carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA.
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
Karen (Lowe) Tobo:
Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test HVR1 and HVR2, haplogroup U5a1a2b, Mitosearch E8X9W, FTDNA kit #248358
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Karen:
Thanks so much for your help understanding this the other day and for all of your work on integrating my DNA friends to wikitree! I appreciate having you as a resource and look forward to meeting you again!
I found a 6.4cm match with your brother and a 4.1cm match with you. I am 18 degrees from you on the global family tree through my Bankston family. There is a published book Bankston Cousins by Haigler, are you listed in it?
Cheers friend, Elijah
18 degrees - 2nd cousin 2x removed of husband of 4th cousin 1x removed. This is through the Davis Shaffer connection. What's interesting is my 3rd great grandmother Catherine Turney, who is my connection to your family, married a Kimmel as her 3rd husband. I have to wonder if there's a relationship there somewhere also, though these Kimmels lived in Harrison Co., Ohio. :)
Rev Martin Mastin Southern is private because a lot of this family are still living.. I was trying to protect their privacy.. I do have some sources.. but I haven't gotten a chance to post them yet.. Thank you for your help.. :)
