The R-U106 groups

                Banks families and other closely related
                persons within Haplogroup R-U106
            
common ancestor likely in western Europe in pre-Christian era

                              An ancestor of all R-U106 developed a mutation on the U106 site of the Y-chromosome
                              which his male descendants in an uninterrupted male lineage all share.  There are 
                              additional subgroups of R-U106 based on additional mutations now available.  The status
                              of the Banks participants for all of these is unclear.

                                                  Marker site numbers shown in blue.  Marker values shown in yellow.
                                                 The red background behind a marker indicates a difference in value

                             

  Participants 51023 and 68305 and 72273 likely share a common male ancestor that the others do not.  The 464 marker does 
           not mutate as fast as the other markers on the chart which also have differences here.  And, in
           fact, the first men have a N. Carolina/Indiana connection, and the latter passed through Tennessee
           at one time
.  


These are 5 families traced to 1780s Bedford Co., Virginia. 
           The first group consists of descendants of William Banks in Virginia in the mid-1700s.  Family 
           was in Bedford Co.,Virginia, in the late 1700s, then moved to Adair Co., Kentucky, Arkansas 
           and Oregon. 
Participant 41482 is 5 generations  from William Banks.
  
           Also in this group is John Banks, b. abt 1780, who married in Bedford Co. before moving
           to Warren, later Coffee, Co. Tenn.  
Participant 52825 is 4 generations from John Banks. 

           Anoher family consists of descendants of John Banks, b. abt 1755 who was also in Bedford
           Co., then moved to Stokes Co., N. Carolina, then Indiana.  
Participant 51023 is 5 generations
           from 
           John Banks.  There is a possibility that John was a son of William.  There is some complication
           in that there was another Samuel in Bedford Co. the same age as a Samuel from the first group. 
           So there must have been several male Bankses belonging to the William Banks generation.  This
           second Samuel Banks followed John to  N.C. and Indiana so will be treated as part of the family
           though the exact relationship is not known.   

           The fourth family in this group is descended from David Banks , b. abt 1785 in N. Carolina, lived 
           Rockingham Co., NC and was later in Tenn. and Floyd Co., Kentucky.  
Participant 68305 is 5 
           generations from David. 

           The fifth family in this group is that of  John Banks, b. abt 1811, N. Carolina (apparently Stokes 
           Co.) who moved to Jackson Co., Indiana, and died in Jefferson Co., Kansas. 
Participant 72273 
           is 4 generations from John.  

           The sixth family in this group is descended from Charlie Banks, b. 1887, a resident of 
           Montgomery Co., Texas.  His parentage is currently unknown.  Participant N6 is his
           grandson.  He was not tested at the same lab as the others so only the same markers tested
           elsewhere are shown.

          There is an above average probability this sample is R-U106 because a few of the
          closest matches to our participant were tested as such.  The Banks sample has not been 
          specifically tested, and our participant may be positive for one of multiple R-U106 subgrps. 
 
           The marker values here have a number of similarities with the Brunswick Co., Virginia, Banks 
           families.  Indeed both Banks families likely belonged to the same grouping sometime before the  
           Roman Empire, but the two families are not related  in modern times.

Family Group # 2

  
James Banks born in 1700s, was in Huntingdon Co., Pennsylvania....AND Edward Banks of
         similar age born in Maryland, later in Franklin Co., Pennsylvania, and West Virginia
         with descendants in Ohio...AND....Andrew Banks who was in Baltimore, Maryland,
         late 1700s where most of his descendants remained.

 One family here known to descend from  James Banks, b. 1750s, & in Huntingdon Co., Pennsylvania. 
The information on James was posted to the Sorenson DNA database, and further details are not 
available.  
The second family is descended from Edward Banks, b. abt 1772, Maryland.  He moved
to Franklin Co., Pennsylvania, Washington Co., Maryland, then present-day Jackson Co., West
Virginia.   Family later mostly in Richland and Seneca Cos., Ohio. 
Participant 58660 is 5 generations
from Edward Banks. The third family is descended from Andrew Banks of late 1700s Baltimore,
Maryland. 
Participant 141063 is 5 generations from Andrew Banks.  It is not understood how these three
families are related.  Also of interest is the Joshua Banks family.  Joshua married also in Baltimore in
1800, and his son Morgan Rhys Banks was also in south central Pennsylvania.

This family is confirmed to have the U106 mutation that characterizes R-U106.   It is additionally
 negative for subgroups of U106:  namely L198, P89.2, P312, P107, L6, L48, L325, L257, L217 & L1.
