How Do DNA Tests Work?

Paper trails may end or be in error...but DNA "bloodlines" cannot be changed. 

A "Brief" on DNA Testing ~

Individuals in a family study who share 43 of 43 alleles are considered a unique haplotype, a genetic term for "group".  Each haplotype or group is assigned a number.

Lineages in a Family Study are designated with a letter and are defined by haplotypes containing "2" or more individuals, and/or haplotypes that share at least 38 of 43 alleles.

MRCA = Most Recent Common Ancestor. Common Ancestors are to be used as a guide as are the MRCA calculations on which they are based.

Do you know which Branch you belong in............???????????

 They are arranged in a TIMELINE according to the birthdate or first known arrival in a certain geographical location.

ANCESTRAL LINEAGE GROUP'S

1635 Massachsetts ~ Boston                       William Blantine/Blanton

The first Blanton immigrant to enter colonial Massachusets was William (1) Blantine/Blanton.  He is known to have arrived in Boston, Suffolk, MA as early as 1635 and becoming a Freeman in 1643.  William (1) married with Phoebe (1). Together their children were William (2) Blantine/Blanton; Mary Blantine/Blanton and Phoebe (2) Blantine/Blanton, all born in Boston, Suffolk, MA. 

William (2) is documented as the father of five Blantine sons: William (3), John, Noah, Obadiah, Samuel, & Daniel Blantine.  These five (5) sons were placed under the Guardianship of their Aunt Phoebe (2)  and Uncle Samuel Pierce of Boston, Suffolk, MA.  These sons are noted as "THE BLANTINE ORPHANS OF 1701" (they were all under the age of 21 in 1701).

Donors are needed from of the Blantine/Blanding Orphans!

2011 Wilbur Hugh Blanding DNA Donor test results is a 43/43 marker match with 2001 DNA Donor David William Blanton .

Hugh Blanding descends from Ebenezer Blanding b.1754 MA, lived in MA/NY. Ebenezer is the 2nd great-grandson of William (1) Blantine/Blanton of Boston, Massachusetts.

David W. Blanton descends from John Blanton b. 1760 d. 1840 Red River County, Republic of Texas.

Blanton Lineage A ~

Genetic data supports a close relationship between the ancestors of all Lineage A Participants with an estimation that the Most Recent Common Ancestor (MRCA) for a 43 of 43 marker match is at 3 generations with a 95% confidence interval of 1 to 10 generations.

BLANTON LINEAGE A ~ Represented by thirty (31) Participants.  The majority of Blanton Family DNA Analysis Project Participants belong to Blanton Lineage A and share a common patrernal ancestry in an as yet unnamed common ancestor.

This Blanton Branch is represented by Participants who have provided  evidence of their ancestry back to Thomas Blanton of Old Rappahanock County, Virginia and William 1 Blanton of  Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.

WE NEED TO ASCERTAIN THROUGH A TRADITIONAL EXHAUSTIVE RESEARCH AND DNA COMPARISONS (DNA establishes true "blood lineages" by Y-Chromosomes passed from father to son, ALL THE DESCENDENTS OF THE FOLLOWING ANCESTORS ) ..........

1682 FIRST KNOWN COLONIAL VIRGINIA IMMIGRANT:
THOMAS BLANTON of Lancashire, England is ~ Generation #1

1. THOMAS (1) BLANTON, was born in 1646 and is thought to have been from Lancashire, England (no proof at this time). He arrived in Virginia as early as 1682.   He married with Jane McGuffy (2).

BECAUSE THE RICHARD BLANTON BRANCH IS SO WELL DOCUMENTED, MALE DESCENDANTS ARE NEEDED TO DNA TEST AND WITH PRIMARY SOURCE CITATIONS PROVING DIRECT DESCENDANCY FROM THOMAS (1) BLANTON & JANE McGUFFY BLANTON..............
IF WITHOUT A DOUBT A DONOR CAN PROVE HIS DESCENT FROM THOMAS (1) BLANTON........................

DNA TESTING WILL BE PAID FOR BY PRIVATE DONATIONS.

TESTING A PROVEN DESCENDENT FROM THIS BLANTON BRANCH WILL ESTABLISH THE "BLOODLINE" OF   THOMAS (1) BLANTON.

              DNA DONORS ARE NEEDED FROM THE DIRECT LINEAGE OF RICHARD BLANTON

Blanton Lineage A ~ This Blanton Branch is represented by six (6) Participants who have proven their ancestry back to the pre-American Revolution in the area of Lee County, Virginia.  William Blanton b. 1740, married with Hannah Hobbs. Their children are: John, Elizabeth, Vincent, Rutha, Joel, Mary, Hannah, Claiborne, Aggy Blanton Johnston .

 Blanding Lineage.  Represented by one (1) Participant.  Matching 24 of 26 with a descendant of Joshua Blanton.  They share a mutation at DYS439 indicating it is likely that they share a common ancestor with each other before they share a common ancestor with the rest of Blanton Lineage A.

The name Blanding appears in 1718 at Palmers River MA on the roll of the First Congretional Church.  Test results of one (1) Blanding Participant  proves an extreme distant relationship to the Blanton Family Lineage A.

Blanding Donors are welcome and needed to join the

1719 ~ Blanton~Womack's of North Carolina ~         ~ Lineage B ~

BLANTON LINEAGE B ~ Blanton/Womack Lineage. Represented by seven (7) Participants.  In this study it was established that the ancestry of the Participants descend from Jeremiah Blanton and he was actually a descendent of Abraham Womack.  Participants share the Blanton surname with the Womack genetic profile.  Further, the genetic profile of one other  Participant verifies the genetic profile of his ancestor to be Claiborne Blanton.It was always believed by most Blanton descendants that the Blanton Family came from three (3) Blanton brothers and that the Blanton Family was all related distantly to one another. 

In 18??  Reverend Lee wrote an article regarding two families of Virginia.  The Womack Family and the Blanton Family.  Rev. Lee stated that a young couple had arrived in the early 1700's in Virginia, the couple had two son's, as the son's grew and became men....one son was true to his father and carried the Womack name, the other son decided for whatever reason,  to take the Blanton surname.  The reason is unclear why the son claimed the Blanton name.

DNA Participants from both families;The Womacks and The Blanton's participated in the Blanton Family DNA testing. The test results proved the Blanton branch  Rev. Lee had written about was indeed true, the Blanton donors test results matched with the Womack Family DNA test results.  The outcome of the DNA tests eliminated about 2200 ancestors and modern day researchers from the Blanton surname and added the same number to the Womack family.

1836 ~ Republic of Texas ~ The Blanton's of Red River County ~ Blanton Lineage A ~

BLANTON LINEAGE A ~ Represented by thirty (30) Participants.  The majority of Participants belong to Blanton Lineage A and share a common paternal ancestry in an as yet unnamed common ancestor.

The ancestry of John Blanton b. 1760 VA or NC and d. November 1840 of Red River County, Republic of Texas is proven by matching DNA Test Results of his descendant Participants and other Blanton DNA Participants who have provided circumstantial evidence connecting them to  Lineage A.   

John arrived in Red River County on July 12, 1836 and enlisted in Becknell's Red River Blue's to serve in the Texas Rebellion for Independence......... at the age of 75 years old.  He lived to see The Republic of Texas established.  John had four (4) known sons: Benjamin, David, Elisha, and Elijah Blanton. The relationship between John and Isaac Blanton has not been determined, but it is believed Isaac was also a son, or possibly a brother.

Brick Walls???????????  Test Test Test

This is a brand new website for our Blanton Family DNA Analysis results. It is currently under construction, so you will want to check back occasionally.

For those of you with brick walls, it is a good idea to test to avoid fruitless research on the wrong family. We can presently link you to the following families: Tidewater Blantons, Southwest Virginia Blantons, Blanton-Womacks, Kershaw SC Blantons and the Boston MA Blandings.  Then, you can search each genealogy in a top-down manner to find likely branches for your line.

You will need to test a male participant descended from an early Blanton through an all-male line. He would bear the Blanton surname, unless he or an ancestor bore a surname other than his biological father's.
