I am an acupuncture physician and herbal apothecary. I love to travel. I did an Oriental Medicine residency in China. I also am a researcher. I truly enjoy discovering information about my ancestors. I am an active member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. I am also a lifetime member of the Jamestowne Society.
Currently, my specific research goals are:
1 - Credit my Revolutionary War era ancestors with DAR service, whenever possible. My DAR membership number is 913898. Currently I have eight lineages proven to DAR standards:
2- These are the Revolutionary War era ancestors that I am working on specific challenges to prove the lineage:
3- It used to be a goal of mine to find a verifiable lineage back to either Jamestowne or the Mayflower. I am very happy to announce that my lineage paper was recently confirmed and approved by the Jamestowne Society. I am now a lifetime member of the Jamestowne Society, member number 9584.
My ancestor who had Jamestowne connection is Richard Wells. I find it fascinating that he trained at the Barber's College in London and that he was a chiurgeon and bloodletter. (Because I am an acupuncture physician, I understand relieving the pain and pressure by leaching out a little blood from the painful area.) Anyway, I am now a lifetime member of the Jamestowne Society. If we share a common lineage, I would be happy to sponsor you or help you with your lineage papers.
In November of 2018, I applied to the Order of the First Families of Maryland. I did this to prove once and for all my family connection to Augustine Herman, the Czech surveyor who made the first map of the Chesapeake Bay. Augustine Herman and his family were the first non-British settlers in Maryland who applied for citizenship of Maryland (i.e. American Citizenship). My genealogical research papers were approved, and my Order Number is 000423.
I enjoy learning the stories of my ancestors. It is a goal to build public profiles so that anyone can learn their ancestors' stories at the click of a mouse without paying for it. I enjoy building thorough biographies whenever possible.
I like to connect with people who are also searching. Especially if we share a common ancestor or our ancestors lived in the same community way back when.
Paternal relationship and lineage to Robert Hardesty is confirmed by a triangulated group consisting of Larry Stephenson GEDmatch A957320, Edwin Hardesty GEDmatch A339382, Laura Bell Skinner GEDmatch A633681 and Lannie Hardesty Hartman GEDmatch A875733. These descendants share a segment on Chromosome number 9. Edwin and Laura's shared segment is from 80,117,635 - 93,919,931, with a length of 21 cM. Their MRCA is Robert Hardesty. Larry's shared segment is 12.3 cM on the same segment, from 86,889,466 to 93,445,905. His MRCA with Edwin is also Robert Hardesty. His MRCA with Laura and Lannie is Robert Hardesty jr whose wife was Nancy Hopkins. Lannie Hardesty Hartman GEDmatch A875733 triangulates into this segment with 13.7 cM from 85,248,784 to 93,617,649. She also descends from son Robert Hardesty. (Although she is a 2nd cousin of Laura Bell Skinner, her relations to Larry and Edwin are more distant).
Paternal relationship and lineage to Robert Hardesty is confirmed by a triangulated group consisting of Virginia Stephenson Clegg GEDmatch A609811, Edwin Hardesty GEDmatch A339382, Zane Darland GEDmatch A944705 and Jon Williams GEDmatch A052615. Edwin and Virginia share 23.8 cM of DNA on chromosome 18. Zane and Jon each triangulated with Edwin and Virginia on different segments: Edwin, Zane and Virginia share a 9.1 cM segment on Chromosome Number 18 from 68,326,989 to 71,067,174. Virginia descends from Robert's son Robert Hardesty, Edwin descends from Robert's son Thomas, and Zane descends from Robert's son Edmund. Also on chromosome 18, Hardesty descendant Jon Williams GEDmatch A052615 shares 12 cM from 52,994,010 to 59,576,359 with Edwin. Virginia's DNA triangulates into an 8.1 cM piece of this same segment. (Virginia is Larry's sister.)
Here is a DNApainter file for our Hardesty DNA Study:
Paternal relationship to Vincent Lake is confirmed by a triangulated group consisting of Danny J**** GEDmatch A603411, Larry Stephenson GEDmatch A957320, and Rick M**** GEDmatch A552338. Their MRCA is Vincent Lake. Danny descends from Vincent Lake's son Elias Lake. Larry descends from Vincent Lake's daughter Abigail Lake McCashland. Rick descends from Vincent Lake's son William Lake. The shared segment is on chromosome number 7. Rick and Danny share 12.2 cM from 96807099 to 109054772. Larry matches with 12.5 cM on the same segment from 96807099 to 109422220 with Danny. Larry also shares 20.8 cM with Rick from 85088091 to 108506370. Also triangulating into the group are Stephenson siblings Charles GEDmatch A449654 and Virginia GEDmatch A609811. Larry's daughter, Beth GEDmatch A551014, also shares 7.5 cM of DNA on this segment.
Here is a DNApainter file that includes what we have learned so far:
Maternal relationship is confirmed by a Total of segments > 7 cM = 3,585.9 cM match between Beth Stephenson and Justin Fegley GEDMatch comparison. Comparing Kit A961957 (Justin Fegley) and A551014 (Elizabeth Stephenson), confirming a Parent/Child match.
Maternal relationship is confirmed by GEDmatch.com comparison of DNA Kit A388595 (Kaycie Fegley) and A551014 (Elizabeth Stephenson). Total of segments > 7 cM = 3,584.5 cM, confirming a Parent/Child relationship.
Paternal relationship is confirmed by a Total of segments > 7 cM = 3,586.4 cM match between Beth Stephenson and Larry Stephenson GEDMatch comparison. Comparing Kit A957320 (Larry Stephenson) and A551014 (Elizabeth Stephenson). Also, AncestryDNA matching comes up as Parent/Child match.
Maternal relationship is confirmed by a Total of segments > 7 cM = 3,586.9 cM match between Beth Stephenson and Joella Lehrman GEDMatch comparison. Comparing Kit A481401 (Joella Lehrman) and A551014 (Elizabeth Stephenson), confirming a Parent/Child match.
Trangulation Effort is underway. Seeking a triangulation group. The first two legs of a trangulation to Vincent Lake and Ann Unknown consisting of Scott Kendall GEDmatch T883903 and Beth Stephenson GEDmatch A551014 sharing a 10.8 cM segment on chromosome 2 is established. Seeking another cousin with a distance of third cousin or further to complete this triangulation. (Note that Ruth Deitsch GEDmatch A684843 is second cousin to Beth and triangulates into this segment from 238,531,798 - 242,656,041 on chromosome 2. Also, Scott's aunt and Beth's father both share the same segment.)
