Y DNA and autosomal DNA testing make it most likely that my grandfather Charles is the biological son of one of the descendants of James Walsworth Elmore. Which descendant that could be is unknown.
My closest Y DNA match at 36/37 is with a descendant of Edward Elmer Jr and Hezekiah Elmer 1686: Esco Elmer. Followed closely by two other recently discovered descendants of Edward Elmer Jr one at 35/37 and the the other at 65/67. All of these testers share four (currently private) Y SNPs along with one SNP that occurs on the line of Edward Elmer Jr .
Trailing the pack for my Y matches are two through Edward's son John at 33/37 and 34/37.
Our Y DNA results may be listed as either R-Z14, R-DF95, CTS12023 etc...
These Y results would be consistent with James Walsworth (or Walworth) Elmore who is down the line of Hezekiah.
An autosomal test with a member of James Walsworth Elmore's family came back as a good match, and at a minimum paternal for us, but has not been proven conclusively to come from James, his wife or their ancestors through segment triangulation.
As a group The Elmers, Elmores and I have worked through Y and Big Y testing to layer ourselves and get a better handle on the relationships within the family of Edward Elmer. You can see and compare our results here at the U106 Y project. We are also part of the R-Z18 and subgroups project in the Cumberland Cluster B.
