Anonymous of Spradley is a profile created in order to document DNA analysis.
This profile represents FamilyTree DNA Kit 428385, a test taken by a stated matrilineal grandchild of Sophie (Thompson) Spradley.
The kit was analyzed by the Hanks Surname DNA Project in an effort to apply mitochondrial DNA testing to confirm the identity of Lucey Hanks.
Documentary evidence supports that Sophie Thompson was a 2nd great-granddaughter of Lucey (Hanks) Sparrow, the grandmother of President Abraham Lincoln, through her daughter Sarah "Sally" Hanks.
Test results show that descendants of three Hanks sisters -- Lucey (Hanks) Sparrow, Mary "Polly" (Hanks) Friend and Nancy (Hanks) Hall share a rare mitochondrial haplotype of X1c along with 3 or more specific mutations, confirming that the the Hanks sisters were indeed sisters.
