DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Arwine 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 some percentage (beta) of DNA with Arwine:

Yates-4270 and Yates-1565 appear to represent the same person because: Obviously these represent the same Arewine Yates. The profiles should be merged. Thank you.

I'm new here and unsure on how to proceed. There are two entries for the same Arwine Yates (Yates-5276 and Yates-1565.) Both have Arwine's parents wrong. Nearly everyone does.

I discovered proof, both in documents and of a genetic nature, that this Arwine was the son of Benjamin Yates, not of Rev John Yates (genetically a full brother of Benjamin.) The documents: Two land records show an underage Arwine with Benjamin Yates in Warren Co Tn in 1826 and 1829, following their move away from the Caney Fork in White Co where Rev John and other relatives lived.

The genetic evidence from DNA testing is beyond compelling. Chromosome analysis of DNA matches allows paternal and maternal chromosomes of ancestors to be partially identified. It is clear that Arwine was a full sibling of several children of Benjamin Yates, sharing both paternal and maternal DNA. Benjamin's wife, the mother of all dozen of his known children, was of recent German descent, of families with anglicized names Cabbage, Arwine, and Beeler. This provided Arwine's name, as well as DNA for his many descendants who match our cousins descended from these families. Descendants of Rev John Yates do not often share this genetic heritage.

There is no basis to the claim that Arwine was a son of Rev John Yates. An errant guess was made years ago, widely copied, and accepted as fact. An old post told an intriguing tale, "The Trade," about how the Rev John Yates offered a shotgun to pacify a young soldier whose wife had taken shelter with the old Reverend while the soldier was away. The research into that tale was sound and made a delightful story. Unfortunately, the author didn't stop there. At the end of the post she listed 22 children of Rev John that she had "found," mistakenly including Arwine. No sources or reasoning were given. Before I discovered proof to the contrary, I asked widely and found no one who could justify this or explain why known records weren't so consistent with Arwine having been Rev John's son. For example, why is there no room for Arwine in Rev John's 1830 census record given John's known sons? And why did Arwine report for his military service that he was born in Warren Co, Tn, when Rev John never lived there? Now we know.

How should I proceed? Post documents? Edit parents?
