  • What Assertions Can Be Made from this DNA Data?

    I think one assertion can definitely be made from the data belowand maybe two. It is a list of my mother's closest Hampton matches in approximate order. Most are from Ancestry, but I inserted a few from FTDNA and 23andMe, so the order may not be exact, as each company has a different formula for computing the amount of shared DNA.

    My mother's great-grandfather was either the son of James W. Hampton or the son of his brother Zachariah Hampton. I think it's perfectly clear from the data that he was the son of James W.

    James W. and Zachariah were the sons of Enoch Hampton (b. abt. 1808, KY). Enoch Hampton's father is unknown, but look how many matches Mom has who are descended from David Hampton and Sarah (Wilson?)! David Hampton had no son or grandson named Enoch. How certain can I be that Enoch Hampton was an ILLEGITIMATE son or grandson of David Hampton???
