Group 8 - Descendants of Jonathan Carpenter-135818
of Still Run, Spotsylvania County, Virginia

Group 8 - The Still Run, Tidewater Virginia Carpenters - of the Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project - is represented by the descendants Jonathan Carpenter of England who settled in Spotsylvania County, Virginia.

"Some Descendants of Jonathan Carpenter of Still Run, Spotsylvania Co. VA" as listed in the book "Carpenter Families of the South: A Compendium" Version 2.1 by Terry Lee Carpenter.

Jonathan Carpenter Sr., born c1710-1720, died c1763 in Spotsylvania Co. VA, settled some time before 1750 on Still Run in Spotsylvania Co. VA. A record of his death is provided by the appointment of his widow as administrator of his estate on 7 Nov 1763. He married c1735-1745 to Jane, whose maiden name is not proved. Jonathan Carpenter Sr. and presumably his wife Jane if she was his only wife are believed to have had eight sons, of whom we have placed six: five in VA and one in OH. The "missing" son in VA could be William Carpenter of Loudoun Co. VA, Joseph Carpenter of 1810 Washington Co. VA, Richard Carpenter of 1810 Washington Co. VA, or William Carpenter of Brunswick Co. VA, and it is also possible that one or more of the sons was one of the early Carpenters in southern MD.
NOTE: This record includes many updates and additions to the book section cited above.

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

These Descendant lineages include those who have been Y-DNA tested and are part of Group 8 of the Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project.

These descendants are in two catagories.
1) Those both genetically and genealogically connected. This iincludes those who are reasonably believed to be related but are not proved. Read their NOTES.
2) Those that match genetically but are NOT connected genealogically. These are listed like children for a DETACHED spouse. This is a technique to provide their lineages to recognize them as being part of Group 8 genetically.
AGAIN, the DETACHED lines are connected genetically only.

Group 8 is genetically distinct from other Carpenter/Zimmerman groups within the Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project.
