Group 13 - Descendants of an English line of Unknown Origin
This Carpenter genetic line settled in North Carolina then southward

Carpenters' Encyclopedia of Carpenters - 2022 Update

The ancestry for Group 13 is very speculative. PARENTAGE: UNPROVEN!

Elias maybe the grandfather or great grandfather? All early placements are very speculated at this time. Research pending with Group 13 members.

The current assumption is that the Carpenter ancestor of Group 13 came to America from England and settled in Virginia. Whether they stopped in Barbados is not known. It is not known if he was transported or birth righted to Virginia.

To temporarily put this Group 13 together as a whole, several temporary "person" inserts have been made. This in lieu of using detached or unconnected lineages.

NOTE: Descendants match the genetic profile for Group 13 of the Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project.
Group 13 is unique from other Carpenter/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
