Only living males WITH the ALLISON, ELLYSON,or Ellison surname can become participants in our ELLISON/ALLISON surname Y-chromosome DNA Project. The reason for this is that fathers pass their Y-chromosome DNA, or "DNA fingerprints," down to their sons with little-if-any-variation, from generation to generation just as surnames are passed from father to son. Therefore, men WITH the same surname who learn that they have identical, or near identical DNA scores (some minor variation can occur), can be genetically proven to be descendants of a common male ancestor. Since women do not inherit their father's Y-chromosome DNA, descendants of your grandmother, Emma Ellen (Allison) Stubblefield, would not have inherited Allison Y-Chromosome DNA. However, it you know of a male descendant WITH the ALLISON surname who is descended from one of your grandmother's brothers or uncles, he could become a participant in the ALLISON/ELLYSON/ELLISON DNA Project. Please contact me for more details.
