Martha Unknown is part of a Bahamian family.


Martha was born about 1752. Martha Unknown ... passed away before 1 Jan 15,1790 when her husband's will was written. She was not mentioned in it, so it is presumed that she died before it was written.

She was the mother of all of John Roberts' surviving children: Sarah Roberts Russell, John Jr., Moses, Richard, and Elizabeth Roberts.

Maternal relationship is confirmed by a triangulated group on GEDmatch consisting of Joseph Henderson Higgs LL4694669, Joy Jossi T388818, Irene Eliza Lowe T829035, Linda Cole ZH2617760, and Jack Sawyer T030102 who share a 9.2 cM segment from 9,543,470 to 13,703,201 on their X chromosome. The most-recent common ancestor who could have contributed to their X-DNA is Martha Unknown. See Martha’s X-DNA descendant chart to independently perform the comparisons.

Re: Above note on this triangulated group. My first cousin, once removed, shares this match with them on her X chromosome. Also, a lady who appears to descend from Potters of England. She also matches on chromosome 6 with other Bahamian cousins. Another non-Bahamian lady has a X chromosome match with my cousin and many matches on chromosome 5 with Bahamian cousins. She is directly descended from Hugh Roberts & Ann Carnbelack of St. Keverne, Cornwall, England. These two ladies have an exact X chromosome match with each other and my cousin. My sister has a X chromosome match with the Potter lady as well. - Phil Roberts-9334
