      DNA CONFIRMED DESCENDANTS
      ? Researched by Timothy J. Barron, updated September 3, 2017

      AncestryDNA has confirmed the following DNA matches of descendants of Jeremiah Elkins and Esther Richmond. Descent has also been researched and confirmed via documentation and records that meet recognized genealogical standards of proof. The DNA research for my maternal ancestry uses three different AncestryDNA profiles, which includes myself, my mother Paula Barron (née Maisel), and my aunt Janice Day (née Maisel).

      AncestryDNA confirmed a match between the DNA profile of Ryan Kellus Turner and myself, as well as both my mother and aunt. The match with with my profile showed a predicted relationship of 5th to 8th cousins, and a moderate confidence level (with 6.5 centimorgans shared across 1 DNA segment). The match with my mother?s profile showed a predicted relationship of 4th to 6th cousins, and a very high confidence level (with 47 centimorgans shared across 3 DNA segments). The match with with my aunt?s profile showed a predicted relationship of 3rd to 4th cousins, and an extremely high confidence level (with 151 centimorgans shared across 6 DNA segments). Our common ancestors Jeremiah Elkins and Esther Richmond, and we are fourth cousins. Ryan descends from William Franklin Elkins, while I descend from Caroline Elkins.
