Group 12 - Descendants of George Carpenter-204498
Born about 1710 and of Somerset, England

Carpenters' Encyclopedia of Carpenters - 2022 Update

The primary branch of Group 12 stayed in and around Somerset in England. There is good documentation of three emigrations to America from this Carpenter line. Two are documented genealogically arriving in New York in 1851 and the second about 1858 to Minnesota. The third immigration to Virginia and points westward was defined genetically. This detached Virginia branch of Group 12 was once thought as being part of Group 3 of the Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project. But the genetic profile or genetic fingerprints of those direct male descendants disprove this.

We use a technique to put this Group 12 together as a whole, a "DETACHED GENEALOGICALLY" section was added for the Virginia branch.

NOTE: Descendants match the genetic profile for Group 12 of the Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project. Group 12 is unique from other Carpenter and Zimmerman groups within the Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project.

The Carpenter Cousins web project is an effort to update and correct Carpenter/Zimmerman and related names.

Y-DNA testing allows the Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project to tell the genetic difference between this group and many others.

The number after the surname is a record information number (RIN) from the Carpenter Cousins Project master genealogical database. See: The Carpenter Cousins Project
