DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Henry 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 Henry:

On the one hand, it looks ok, but the trouble with the different sons is troubling. It could mean there are 2 Henrys, or that someone inappropriately attached themselves to him

I've proposed a merge of the two fathers, so that will need to be completed before this merge can. BTW. The particular online tree I looked at suggests that this Henry was born in Cardiff, Glamorgan, Wales.

Hi Lyle. Thanks for responding to my comment. I found some Find A Grave sources for the descendants. I can't find a source for your David Thomas, but Henry Thomas, the 'other' son was also born in Cumberland County, PA. I also found this online tree: so in the absence of other primary sources, it seems that the two profiles would be good to merge.

Since the only differences (not contradictions) are in the children of Henry, I suppose what is needed is for someone to research whether any other sources list Henry as having children that include those from both of our Henrys. Are any of you willing?

More sources are needed before the proposed merge between this profile and Henry Thomas should be completed. Henry Thomas was a pretty common name. Thanks

Hi Mike, please could you add any sources you have for this profile. There is a pending merge with Henry Thomas which is now default approved, but there really isn't enough information on your profile to suggest that they are duplicates. Sources giving some clarification about relevant locations would be particularly handy. Thanks.

Thomas-24786 and Thomas-14821 appear to represent the same person because: error 106, vital data is basically the same, although linked family presents some differences and should be checked before merging (parents, spouses, children, etc)
