Daughety and Dunn Y DNA


Y DNA passes down virtually unchanged from father to son. Testing can be used to trace a direct paternal line. About DNA tests

Three male descendants of Walter Dunn, Jr. (1788-1850) have tested with FamilyTreeDNA and match other males whose ancestors have the Daughety/Daugherty surname. It is not known how or when the Daughety DNA was introduced into this Dunn line. All that is known is it occurred before 1788.

One possibility is that a Daughety male fathered a son born to a Dunn mother. Famines and plagues left many orphans adopted by other families. There could be any number of reasons.

Looking for descendants of John Patrick and Newman Dunn, brothers of Walter Jr., who have done a Y DNA test and learning about their results.

A couple of people experienced in Y DNA analysis have stated the following:

Zack Daugherty: SAPP is projecting 1450 (1300-1600 AD) to common ancestor for this Potts/Dunn cluster and pre-colonization of U.S.

Michael D Lacopo: Keep in mind that the SAPP analysis shows a likely common ancestor of those tested to be pre-colonization. Apparently, since descendants of Walter Dunn have a Daugherty-signature Y-DNA, a Daughetry factors into the paternal line in 1788 or earlier. This could be 1488 as easily as it could be 1788. Your Daugherty connection could still be in America, but the pertinent individuals have not tested. If there are Daughertys lurking in the right place at the right time within the Dunn families' cohorts, Y-DNA testing male descendants of those Daugherty men may be of benefit.

There are many variations in the spelling of the Daughety surname.
