Our GG grandparents Pie Chart

From Deb Ruth's blog "Adventurers in Genealogy" and Randy Seavers of Gena-Musing's Saturday Night genealogy fun, I decided to learn how to make a pie chart. My daughter did this one, but now I know how to make one. I decided to do what Deb did and make a chart that covered my children's 3 times great grandparents, even then, most were born in Indiana. Our families came very early to Montgomery, Putnam, and Jennings Co., Indiana., Joe had 11 born in Indiana, I had 6. I had 6 from Kentucky and he had 2, which all came about 1900 to Indiana. I had 2 from Ohio, and he had 3, I had one GG that was born in Vermont, who never made it to Indiana, he went to Missouri, and died in Missouri, but his widow came to Indiana. His family is all my New England families that came from England to Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Vermont. I may try making another chart of 4th or 5th grandparents to show where they were before they came to Indiana.

Mom’s autosomal DNA results


My mom’s haplogroup is U2e1a, 100% European; the U2 group is some of Europe’s earliest inhabitants. My mom’s mitochondrial line is Rivers/ Simms/Johnson/Huston/ unknown. We thought the unknown ancestor was Native American, but it appears James Huston was married to someone who had European roots in her mitochondrial lineage. It could be that James Huston’s mother was the Native American, right now, I do not know.
I got mom’s autosomal DNA done at 23andme. Her genotype for eye color is AG, which says likely brown {56% brown, 37% green, 7% blue}, she does have brown eyes, however her genotype for hair color is CT, which is substantially higher odds of having red hair, marker rs1805007. Her hair is dark brown, but she has red haired children, grandchildren, and grandparents. I would recommend 23andme, as I have found it all very interesting, she has also matched up with her Long , Haynes, Phipps, Powers, Frisby, and Day cousins on her paternal side on their website. She has not matched up yet with anyone on her maternal side, but everyone hasn't answered back yet, her closest match was a possible 2nd to 4th cousin and they have not responded back to e-mail that was sent. Update: they answered back, it is a Haynes/Phipps cousin.

Simms {died at 2 from spinal meningitis}, and Otis Simms {died young}. George served in Union army in civil war, 20th battery Indiana, his records state at age 20 he was 6 feet tall, brown hair, grey eyes, he was stationed at Bridgeport, Alabama, he lost his hearing in the war. He filled out a form for the army in 1900 stating he had 9 children, but only 7 living and listed them and marked the ones that were deceased. He died on his 50th wedding anniversary and Jane's 74th  Birthday from a heart attack, while in town transacting business with W.A. Swank, loan officer. His wife and family were planning a surprise anniversary party, and his death was a big shock to them all, even though he was being treated for heart problems.
  1. Phebe Jane Johnson – born Aug. 28, 1842 Crawfordsville, Montgomery Co., IN., died June 8, 1918, Alamo, Montgomery Co., Indiana. Jane had a child before her marriage to George Simms. Mary Arlene Johnson Taylor. Mary's death record says her father was Abner Johnson. I know Jane's maiden was also Johnson as she states in George's pension records she has went my name Jane Johnson since a child, and she is listed in all her Johnson siblings obituaries, so I don't know if she was ever married to Abner Johnson.
