Further Information on John Milledge Gilbert Strickland

John was born out-of-wedlock to Barsheba Strickland. Undocumented family histories indicated he was a descendant of the William Gilbert b. 1758 (husband of Tamar Strickland), but current researchers had no proof. The DNA results support this theory.

The following kit matches this family line with an unknown connection. James W. Gilbert is consistently stated as having been born in Virginia in censuses, but can be found in Franklin Co., PA by the 1840 census. Franklin County is not far from West Virginia, and it's possible that's where James was born.

  • 1 James W. Gilbert b. 1812 Virginia d. 1890 Franklin Co., PA
    • 2 Michael Alvin Gilbert b. 1849 Franklin Co., PA d. 1916 Franklin Co., PA
      • 3 David Hughes GIlbert b. 1876 Franklin Co., PA d. 1949 Chemung Co., NY
        • 4 Harold Michael Gilbert b. 1905 Tucker Co., WV d. 1983 Chemung Co., NY
          • 5 Kit 365212 (Tested to 67 markers)

Genetic Distance

The following communication is from Family Tree DNA explaining why the genetic distance between Kit 48510 and Kit 79470 should be considered three instead of the apparent six or seven.
"This is an interesting case. These two males have a genetic distance of one at CDY a and b (although it is counted as two, since there is a one step difference at CdY a and b, it should be considered one) that is being scored as two. Additionally, current research has shown that mutations that occur at 464 and CDY a and b may occur at the same due to their location on the Y-DNA (close to the markers responsible for sperm genesis which seem to cause more mutations in the passing of mutations at 464 and CDY a and b) so while genetic distance is technically 5, I would consider the changes to have happened at 464 and CDY a and b to have happened at the same time and would list the genetic distance at 3 on these 37 markers."

Texas Lines

The following kit also matches the Guilford Co., NC family line. William Gilbert, patriarch of this branch, can be found in the 1850 and 1860 Federal Census in Chambers Co., AL.

          • 5 Loy Julius Gilbert b. 1914 Van Zandt Co., TX d. 2007 Smith Co., TX
            • 6 Kit 970969 (Tested to 37 markers)
