Gassaway Gang DNA Research Results
Posted by: Clif Gazaway (ID *****5902) Date: September 03, 2010 at 21:31:07
In Reply to: Gassaway gang in California by Karen of 600

Upton Gassaway ancestor has (1) paper trail to Col. Nicholas Gassaway and (2) DNA matching Agrippa/Grafton Gas??zway Clan.

Dwight Gasway and Clif Gazaway are biologically related to the Shane Gassaway shown on the paper tree below. That is "proven" by DNA.

Dwight, Clif and Shane are proven, by DNA, to have common ancestors, but we do not know the name or generation of the MOST RECENT COMMON ANCESTOR (MRCA in DNA jargon).

We need DNA from a descendant of a BROTHER of any male Gs??Zway on the chart below.
If that DNA matches Shane, it would "prove" that the father of the two brothers was the MRCA of Shane and the new donor. They would be cousins because they have a common ancestor.
