His yDNA Haplogroup: R-7253, mtDNA Haplogroup: N1a1a3, Descendant Tree: R1b-L21.
FamilyTree yDNA for Gaylord Vard Smith (Smith-49749) proves Vard's paternal descent from Nicholas Smith (Smith-46606) via Nicholas's son William, his son Josiah, his son Isaac, his son Josiah, his son, John Thompson Smith, Sr., his son John, Jr. his son Vard, and his son John. Extensive family, Bible and public records prove connection of this line to the maternal line of Gaylord's 4th cousin, Quentin Smith [Smith-44054] via Henry, brother of John Thompson Smith, Sr., Gaylord's great grand grandfather.
Quentin is a member of the Society of Mayflower Descendants in the 12th generation from the Elder William Brewster. He is also a member of the National Society of Sons of the American Revolution in the 6th generation from David Smith and descends from other Revolutionary War patriots. He is a 4th cousin, once removed, of U. S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Born and reared in a U.S. Army family, Quentin attended schools where his father's career took the family, graduating in 1946 from East High School in Denver, CO. After nearly 4 years in the Army, he graduated in 1957 from the School of Architecture, University of Virginia, receiving the Gold Medal of the American Institute of Architects. He worked for private firms in Paris, France, and San Francisco, California, before a 20-year career in the federal government in architecture, architectural preservation and art projects in San Francisco and Washington, D.C. In retirement he lives in Wilton Manors, Florida.
Paternal relationship is confirmed through Y-chromosome DNA testing. Quentin Cabell Smith, FTDNA kit #28849, and his 7th cousin once removed Len Smith, FTDNA kit #216226, match at a Genetic Distance of 1 on 67 markers thereby confirming their direct paternal lines back to their MRCA Thomas Smith. FTDNA indicates that the probability the two share a common ancestor within the last 8 generations is 94.73% and within the last 9 generations is 96.68%.
