Y Chromsomoe DNA-Haplogroup R1b1a2a1a1a (R-U106)
mtDNA Haplogroup T1a1c1
Y-DNA tests for three descendants of John Robertson are in the FamilyTreeDNA and Ysearch databases. There were many Robertsons in early Kentucky from different families, some Scot and some English or Welsh. Surnames often are the same in unrelated families.
The mitichondral Hapogroup T1a1c1 is rare with only 3 identified among the 120,000 + in the FTDNA database, March 2011.
The Y-DNA from descendents of other Robertson families when compared with ours adds to our understanding of the documented history by either confirming or eliminating ancestral relative candidates.
Please contact me
if you know of any Robertson who is descended from early KY, NC, VA and has had the Y-DNA test done. That can quickly rule in or out any male of being in our direct line.
