Re: Testing Elders-Toot, am I on track?

>Elder 1 = Buell. Buell's relationship to Emeline:
>Emeline had a daughter named Harriett. Harriett had
>a daughter Caroline. Caroline had a daughter Amanda.
>Amanda is Buell's mother.

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
>Harriett. Harriett had a daughter Caroline. Caroline
>had a daughter Elnora. Elnora is Rose's mother.

YES - Rose's mtDNA test would also trace to Emeline.

>Elder 3 = Helen. Emeline had a daughter named
>Harriett. Harriett had a daughter Caroline. Caroline
>had a son named Thomas. Thomas is Helen's father.

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
>named Harriett. Harriett had a son Thomas1. Thomas
>had a daughter named Julia. Julia had a son she
>named Thomas2. Thomas2 is Elder 4 or TomB's father.

No. Testing TomB will not trace back to Emeline since there is not a straight female-to-female descent between Emeline and TomB.
