Wondering About DNA testing for the DaVar - Dever surname & it's variants
Posted by: Terri Rene DaVar - Howard (ID *****9704) Date: January 10, 2005 at 13:37:56

Is there currently a group looking into the DNA of this surname?

If I understand correctly, in order to use the DNA Y-chromosome test to trace this family, I would need to locate the son of a son ... Below is a list I have created of known male descendants of my “brick wall” DAVAR. I would appreciate any additions, but I’d LOVE to locate a male cousin who would be willing to take & share the DNA test and provide a well documented tree dating back to one of my own ancestors. I have never met anyone who would qualify as “a DAVAR son of a DAVAR son” or I’d look closer to home.

(Generation 1) Jesse Davar born 1780

(Generation 2) Male Descendants of Jesse Davar
                     Wylia Dever born 1816
                     Ira Guy Davar born 1818
                     David Devers born 1830

(Generation 3) Male Descendants of Wylia Dever
                            David M. Davar born 1839
                            Peter Dever born 1844
                            Jesse Dever born 1849

                     Male Descendants of Ira Guy Davar
                            None Identified

                     Male Descendants of David Devers
                            Alfred L. Devers born 1867
                            Thomas H. Devers born 1873
                            George E. Devers born 1874

(Generation 4) Male Descendants of David M. Davar
                                   David Mack Devers born 1865

                            Male Descendants of Thomas H. Devers
                                   None Identified
                            Male Descendants of George E. Devers
                                   None Identified

(Generation 5) Male Descendants of David Mack Devers
                                          Guy Devars born 1908
                                   Male Descendants of David Benjamin DaVar
                                          Lyle Lavon Dever born 1914
                                          Jessie Carter DaVar born 1928

(Generation 6) Male Descendants of Lyle Lavon Dever
                                                 Michael Dever born 1948
                                          Male Descendants of Jessie Carter DaVar
                                                 None Identified (this was my dad)

I look forward to responses, data & ideas.
