A Family for David #7 of 52 Ancestors

In the 1800’s an unmarried, pregnant woman could be summoned into Court with a warrant and questioned as to the paternity of her unborn child. If she refused to name the father she could go to jail. When she did name the father, a warrant was issued for him to appear in Court. Thus, paternity was determined, a bastardy bond was issued, and the father had responsibilities toward that child.

Today, an unmarried pregnant woman names the father of her unborn child and the first thing he does is request a paternity test. A DNA sample is taken from the child and a sample is taken from the named father. If the results come back 0%, he is not the father. If the results are 99.9% or higher, he is named as the father and ordered to pay child support to the mother.

And now DNA has entered into the field of genealogy, sometimes changing what we thought we knew of our ancestors, or helping adoptees find their genetic ancestors, or, as in my case, finding not only the surname, but the family of an ancestor with an assumed name. I can’t test my great grandfather, David Brazille Plunk, deceased 1955, nor can I test his father to prove paternity. However, I believe that I can be 99% sure that I have found his ancestral family. I would appreciate anyone’s thoughts on the following information, either pointing out errors I may have made, or whether or not you agree with my analysis.

David had twelve children, six boys and six girls. I began with YDNA to start my search using samples from two of his great grandsons. They are second cousins descended from two different sons of David. Their DNA samples were first submitted to ancestry.com. They match each other exactly 37/37 markers giving us David’s YDNA. But as far as matching other men in the ancestry.com Y database, the results were dismal in that the two men they matched with the same surname (not Plunk) were estimated to share a common ancestor with them within 15 and 34 generations. Ouch.

After a few years of desperate searching up and down an ancestral tree that was leading me nowhere, I transferred the YDNA to familytreedna.com. In that database, they matched a descendant of J.M. Boatwright, 1857 – 1907, exactly 37/37 markers. But, David’s grandsons and J.M. Boatwright’s descendant are of German descent (according to their DNA) and the Boatwrights of the boatwrightgenealogy.com DNA project are of English descent. Plus, J.M. Boatwright’s descendant doesn’t match any of the other Boatwrights in the project. In fact, his only DNA match were David’s great grandsons.

I reached out to the person that submitted the YDNA test for J.M. Boatwright and found that her tester descended through J.M.’s son, Thomas Lee Boatwright, 1878-1918. The Boatwright researcher reached out to her family and found another descendent through J.M.’s son, Lawrence Boatwright, who was willing to submit his YDNA sample. The Lawrence descendant matched the other Boatwrights and is of English descent. So, apparently, J.M. Boatwright is a Boatwright, but his son Thomas Lee Boatwright isn’t a Boatwright. Now what?

J.M. Boatwright was the son of Thomas Boatwright and Lucinda Coker. Lucinda married Henry Nepp/Nipp and had three sons, Henry Nipp abt 1845, Andrew Jackson Nipp abt 1846 and Charles E. Nipp abt 1848. I don’t know what happened to her husband Henry, nor her son Henry, but in 1860, she’s married to Thomas Boatwright and has more children, William Boatwright abt 1852, Joseph Calvin Boatwright 1854 – 1923, J.M. Boatwright 1857-1907, Luticia Boatwright abt 1859.

Some research into the Nipp name revealed its variations of Nipp/Nepp/Neff/Knepp/Knipp/Knipe and apparently originated as the German surname Knopp. A clue!

There was a website, genetree.com, where you could manually enter the YDNA markers and search for matches in that database. I did so, and David’s great grandsons matched, 37/37 markers, a man who claimed descendency from Verner/Varner Knipp, through his son Daniel. Unfortunately, there was no email available for that tester and genetree has shut down their website.
Ysearch.org didn’t yield anything when I entered the markers there, but at smgf.org David’s testers matched a Knep descendant. Again, no email but this person did include an ancestry chart that I’m researching.

I posted a request for a tester on the Facebook site, Random Acts of Genealogy Kindness (RAOGK) and found another lovely woman in the Knipp family researching her ancestor Edmund Knipp, 1804-1867). I also started my own Facebook research group, Nipp/Knapp-KIN and allied Families. A descendant of Edmund Knipp submitted his YDNA and he matches the descendants of David Brazille Plunk and the descendant of Thomas Lee Boatwright exactly 37/37 markers.

At this point, I’m sure that the ancestral surname of David Brazille Plunk is Nipp/Knipp, but which family does he belong to?

One of my matches from my atDNA test (autosomal) is a man descended from Leann Knipp and John Adam Bible. Leann is the daughter of Daniel Knipp and Regina Bowers. Daniel is the son of Varner/Verner Knipp and wife Christeener. This fits with the YDNA results of my cousins.

Imagine my surprise recently when I saw a man with the surname of Boatwright listed as one of my atDNA matches! Correspondence with this match reveals that he is descended from Joseph Calvin Boatwright and Emma Dean Carter. Joseph Calvin Boatwright is the son of Thomas Boatwright and Lucinda Coker Nipp Boatwright. Yes! He is the brother of J.M. Boatwright that raised the Thomas Lee Boatwright whose descendant matches the YDNA of my Plunk testers. The way I see it is that my atDNA Boatwright match is related to me through Lucinda Coker Nipp Boatwright. He descending through her marriage to Thomas Boatwright and myself descending through her marriage to Henry Nipps.

So now the question is which of her three Nipps sons is the father David Brazille Plunk. And who was his mother?

Plunk/Boatwright/Knipp – A DNA study

Please remember, I’m not an expert genealogist, not a scientist, and definitely not a geneticist.  I’m just a  person who wants to solve some family mysteries and get to know my ancestors.

I’ve been attempting to use DNA for several years now to discover who the biological parents of my great grandfather were.  During that time, I’ve been reading all the info on DNA used for genealogy as I possibly can.  Hopefully, I’ve learned a little bit.  If you disagree with anything I say, please be kind and let me know so that I don’t perpetuate false information.

I don’t know who the biological parents of David Brazille Plunk were, but I believe the family of his biological father was Nipp/Nepp/Knipp.  The following is how I came to that conclusion.

I first had two of David’s great grandsons, descended through two different sons, Orvan O. “Bud” and Ira, tested through ancestry.com.  The results were frustrating in that there were no close matches.  Since these two great grandsons match each other exactly marker for marker, and are descended through two different sons, I believe I have a solid foundation for the Y DNA of David Brazille Plunk.  Y DNA is passed from father to son to son to son to son, so only males can take the test.

I then turned to familytreedna.com and their Family Finder test.  This is a test for all those chromosomes you inherited from all ancestors, male and female, across all lines.  Problem is, the test can’t tell you which line your match is from.  At last count I had some 300 genetic cousins I’ve never met, nor heard of.

While the family finder test was helpful in some of my known lines, it had not helped me in determining my main goal -the family of David Brazille Plunk.  Since my male Plunk cousins match each other exactly, I transferred the Y DNA of one of them to Family Tree DNA.

I was very excited to find a match to a descendant of J.M. Boatwright 1857 – 1904.  Notice I said “a” match, as in ONE match.  Out of the hundreds of thousands of men who have tested, I have ONE match?  But, it’s a perfect 37/37 marker match, so my Plunk must be a Boatwright, correct?  No, of course it’s not going to be that easy.

Two descendants of J.M. Boatwright, descended from two different sons, Thomas and Lawrence, also tested their Y DNA.  My Plunks match exactly 37/37 markers the descendant of Thomas, but not the descendant of Lawrence.  The descendant of Lawrence actually matches other Boatwrights in the Boatwright DNA study, but Thomas’ descendant does not.  The descendant of Thomas had the ONE match as well.  My Plunk.

What does this mean?  It means that either Thomas Boatwright, or one of his descendant’s,  was an NPE (non parental event).  In other words, Thomas is not the biological son of J.M. Boatwright, 1857 – 1904, or one of his male descendants were NPE.

While looking for another male descendant of Thomas Boatwright to test, I started looking into the Boatwright family.  According to Y DNA, my Plunks and the Thomas Boatwright descendant are of German descent.  The Boatwrights are of English descent.

Unlike the Plunk family that always knew David Brazille Plunk was an NPE, no one in the Boatwright family suspected that Thomas, or one of his descendants, were NPE.

Remember that Thomas Boatwright is said to be the son of J.M. Boatwright and Mahala Johnson.  According to the Turnbo Manuscripts, by S.C. Turnbo, J.M. Boatwright is the son of Thomas Boatwright and Lucinda Coker Nepp Boatwright.  Nepp?  What nationality is that?

Keep in mind the level of literacy at the time, and that most everything, I believe, was spelled phonetically by whoever was writintg.  I’ve seen the surname written as Nipp/Nepp/Knipp/Knapp/Knipe, and some others I can’t think of at the moment.

To be honest, I haven’t been able to make heads or tails of the true original name.  It appears to me, at the present time, that about the same time an immigrant Knapp from England and an immigrant Knopp or Knipe from Germany arrived in the colonies.  I think that because of the similarities of the names, that the surnames have been used interchangeably by both families making it difficult to trace the lines of each branch.  But I digress and that’s a blog for another day.

The big clue on my Family Finder is a man predicted to be my 3rd cousin whose 2nd great grandmother is Leann Knipp.

And now, another tester has shown up as a perfect 37/37 match to my Plunks and the Thomas Boatwright descendant.  This tester is a descendant of Edmund Knipp, 1804 VA.

I am attaching a spreadsheet to this that shows the markers and alleles of these four men and how they match each other.  I don’t want to get all technical with what alleles and markers are.  Let’s just put it simply that the numbers on the top row are the markers of Y DNA and the numbers under those are the value of those markers each tester inherited from his male line.  A perfect match on all 37 markers is an indication the men came from the same male at some point.  In fact, as long as there are 3 or less differences in the numbers in the value row, the male line will be common.  More than 3 differences, it won’t….at least not within a thousand years or so (my belief, look it up for yourself).

My two testers, Plunk 1 and Plunk 2, are combined on the same line since they match each other exactly.  Next is Boatwright 1, the descendant of Thomas Boatwright.  Following him is Knipp, the descendant of Edmund Knipp.  You can easily see that these men have the exact same values all across the row with no differences whatever, meaning they are from the same male line.

Boatwright 2 is the descendant of Lawrence Boatwright.  I’ve indicated his different values in red making it easy to see there is no way he is from the same line.

Y markers for Knipp project

Who Were They? DNA solves a families questions.

All of my life I have heard that Grandpa’s biological family were German and the name was Smith.  Grandpa being David Brazille Plunk.

Although it’s possible his biological mother could have been a Smith, I believe I now have DNA proof (not paper) than his biological male line was Knipp/Nipp.  Here’s why:

At Family Tree DNA (FTDNA), the YDNA results of his great grandson match 37 to 37 markers to a descendant of James/John M. Boatwright.  However, our match didn’t match another descendant of James/John.  Looking in the Boatwright family I found their close kinship to Knipp/Nipp which I have written about elsewhere.

In my own autosomal DNA tests I’m listed as a 3rd cousin to a descendant of Leann Knipp.

Then this morning, the holy grail, my Grandpa’s DNA matches 37 to 37 markers to a descendant of Edmund Knipp.

And now the research begins to get to know the biological family of David Brazille Plunk.

Patrick Henry

One of those happy little discoveries I made when I started building my genetic tree was that Patrick Henry was my 6th great-grandfather.

The difference, for me, between a genetic tree and a family tree is that I was adopted by my step-father and I legally became someone else with a whole new paternal family.  However, when I started using DNA in an effort to discover the biological parents of my ancestor, David Brazille Plunk, I also had to find out who I was related to through DNA on my birth father’s side of my chromosomes.  I wrote about that in Genetics and Genealogy.

It was so funny when I told my daughter about this discovery and my grandson chimed in with “give me liberty or give me death”.  I didn’t even know he knew who Patrick Henry was!  In retrospect, if I had known this at an earlier age, I may have paid more attention in history class.

You can read a more detailed bio of Patrick Henry on Wikipedia:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patrick_henry

I am not listing all of his children, their marriages, and descendants, but for the purpose of showing my relationship to him, I’m only listing the pertinent people from him to me.

Patrick Henry, 19 May 1736 – 6 June 1799 and his 2nd wife, Sarah Shelton

John William Henry 1765 – 1842 and his 2nd wife, Rosannah Wade

Elizabeth Jane Henry 1802 – 1875 married Icil Burchett

William H. Burchett 1825 – 1886 married Catherine Holsapple

John Calvin Burchett 1848 – 1880 married Nancy Ann Rennison

Lula Mae Burchett 1881 – 1963 married King Daniel VanBenthuysen (sometime between 1910 and 1920, he started using the surname Benson.  I haven’t been able to determine if it was a legal name change or not).

Myrtle Fae Benson 1910-1954 married Jeff Dave Tiger

Carl Alvin Tiger 1929 to 2012 married my mother

Carla Wallain Davis (6th great grand-daughter of Patrick Henry)
