    Some more famous Y-DNA

    Pushkin's haplogroup is mentioned on Poreklo. Of the others the ancestry can be found on geni.com (assuming the information there is correct). I give the name and dates of the ancestor whose haplogroup is mentioned on family tree dna.




    Alexander Pushkin R1a

    John Hawkins (Andrew Hawkyns, 1421-1453) R1b-DF83

    Cooper Family, including James Fenimore Cooper and Anthony Ashley Cooper, 1st Earl of Shaftesbury (John Cooper, 1490-1566) R1b

    Ernest Hemingway (Ralph Hemenway) R1b

    Clint Eastwood (Israel Eastwood, 1718-1794) R1b

    Samuel Morse (Anthony Morse, 1606-1686) I1

    Mark Twain (Robert Clements, 1595-1658) I1

    Very interesting. I will double check the sources, just in case.


    Mark Twain => Clements DNA Project : two descendants of Robert Clements tested I1 and one tested R1b. Since that common ancestor lived 400 years ago and few descendants were tested, the reliability is low.

    Samuel Morse => Morse/Moss DNA Project : only one descendant of Anthony Morse, but many Morse individuals with the same I1 haplotype. Possible but need more info.

    Clint Eastwood => Eastwood DNA project : only one descendant of Israel Eastwood

    Ernest Hemingway => Hemingway DNA project : two descendants of Ralph Hemenway, both R1b.

    Cooper family => Cooper DNA project : very common surname. Only lineage N°23 mentions John Cooper (1490-1566). Very distant ancestor, so higher chance of non-paternity event, but R1b possible.

    Admiral John Hawkins (1532-1595) => Hawkins DNA Project : lots of lineages, but Andrew Hawkyns (1421-1453) falls in Family Group 3, which is well represented. That's the most likely match so far.

    It seems I've been a little rash, but hopefully this is a start for finding these people's haplogroups!

    Thanks for posting these. Searching for haplogroups in Geni is most efficient when several people do it, so maybe there should be a thread only for leads and non-verified info about possible famous haplogroup representatives?

    Another possibility is J.P. Morgan. His ancestor Miles Morgan (d. 1699) is mentioned as R1b by Family Tree DNA. Several descendants have been tested it seems.

    Some more leads, maybe not the most famous people, but unexpected haplogroups (ancestors mentioned on ftdna):

    Tommy Lee (musician) Haplogroup A (John Bass, 1616-1699)
    Al Jolson (singer) Haplogroup R2 (Yoelson/Henderson, Lithuania)
    Billy Graham (preacher) Haplogroup J1 (William Alexander Graham, b. Ireland ca. 1740)

    American frontier explorer Daniel Boone, who laid out the Wilderness Road through the Cumberland Gap and founded Boonesborough, one of the first American settlements west of the Appalachian Mountains, belonged to haplogroup R-M269.
