>Elder 1 = Buell. Buell's relationship to Emeline:
YES - Buell is male if I remember correctly. You can do the mtDNA test on Buell and get the maternal line back to Emeline. Buell's Y-chromosome test will give his father's lineage and I don't know if that is something you want.
>Elder 2 = Rose. Emeline had a daughter named
YES - Rose's mtDNA test would also trace to Emeline.
>Elder 3 = Helen. Emeline had a daughter named
No. Testing Helen will give you Helen's MOTHER's mother's mother's etc., lineage, not Thomas' lineage.
>*Elder 4 = Thomas (TomB). Emeline had a daughter
No. Testing TomB will not trace back to Emeline since there is not a straight female-to-female descent between Emeline and TomB.
