The J-M172 group

              Banks families within Haplogroup J2
        
common ancestor likely in the Middle East in pre-Christian era

                 .
                       Haplogroup J2 is the most common one today in the Middle East, but is found to
                       some extent in adjacent regions.  The bulk of J2 may have been brought to Britain
                       by mercenaries recruited by the Romans.

                       Persons who belong to the J2 haplogroup share the M172 mutation developed by an
                       ancestor in deep ancestry.  There are two known subgroups of J2.  It is unclear if
                       our participant might belong to either of them.

Descendants of Childress Frank Banks, b. 1854 in Wayne Co., Tennessee, but in the 1900s in Robertson
          Co., Texas  His early census not located, but a mother Mary Ann found in a later census.
           Participant 73093 is 3 generations from Childress.  There are no close matches to this family in any
           of the available databases.  In fact, the DNA lab did a complimentary test to confirm this family
           belongs to J2 because the marker values are not typical.  They were originally incorrectly predicting
           the results would show the family was J1.  It is possible that this family belongs to a subgroup of
           J2, but the sample has not been tested for these.
