It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Thomas by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Thomas:
This Thomas Mix is not the father of Thomas Mix b. 1709 who married Ruth Manross. Instead, this Thmas Mix is the son of Thomas Mix and Rebecca Turner. So I am going to disconnect him from here as the father, and move him over to those parents instead.
