Christmas party at Eaton's

When I was young, my grandfather worked for Eaton's in the furniture department.

Every year my sister and I would go to the Eaton's Christmas party which was a breakfast with Santa type affair.

Peverelle DNA doesnt match!

Well I cant say I didnt see it coming....

A few weeks ago I received the DNA results for one of my grandfathers 3rd cousins.  He didnt match my grandfather or my grandfathers sister.

Today I received the DNA results of another of my grandfathers 3rd cousins.  He matches the first one (they are 2nd cousins) but also doesnt match my grandfather or my grandfathers sister.

Somewhere in this line is a problem possibly.

Thelma Peverelle

#13
great grandmother of Kristina Hewitt, Brandon Gilby, Sandra Foster, Tiffany Hewitt
also
***Lewis Hewitt and Pauline Hewitt Thompson's mother***


Thelma was born 5 Jul 1904 in Ontario, Canada.

Thelma Maud Peverelle was the daughter of Lewis Henry Peverelle and Julia Ann Doyle.

Thelma Maud Peverelle married Ernest Hewitt.

Her maternal haplogroup would have been H6a1 (the haplogroup of two of her tested children).

DNA testing done at 23andme has shown that two of her children do not match descendants of Joseph Alexander Peverelle.

Thelma's first son, Peverelle Shamburg Hewitt, died from dyptheria when he was a baby.

mtDNA

Her maternal haplogroup would have been H6a1 (the haplogroup of two of her tested direct female line descendants,all are descendants of her daughter Anne)

Autosomal DNA testing:

Several direct descendants have tested at 23andMe including Kristina Hewitt, Sandra Foster, Tiffany Hewitt, Brandon Gilby, Pauline Hewitt and Lewis Hewitt.

I would be interested in hearing from other descendants of who have tested autosomal DNA at 23andme or FTDNA.

If you haven't tested yet, but would like to know more, you can read my post about autosomal testing for genealogy HERE
