Lehman, Layman, Lemon Genealogy

FamilyA.1. The Most Numerous Lehman, Layman, Lemon, etc. line

      
  Peter Leman arrived in Philadelphia in August of 1717 with five motherless children. On dates unknown, but proximate in time to Peter's arrival; two close relatives, Rudolph and Hans, first set foot on the shores of the New World, almost surely at Philadelphia. A fourth relative may have immigrated later. The family is the most prolific in the DNA study. The precise proportion changes, of course, with each result but this family accounts for about one third of the U. S. participants. Descendants of all three  have been tested. Several participants who exhibit this genetic signature have not yet been able to trace their line to the immigrant. It is possible that there is one or more other 18th Century immigrants belonging to this family. Cousins in Switzerland trace the family to Vechigen at the beginning of Kirchebuch records in the mid-1500s, as appears from Test 68, below. All of the three known  early immigrants were Mennonites. We will call it FamilyA.1. The family is of haplogroup R, specifically R1b1a2a1a1a. The charts that follow include, as to this and all other families, only direct ancestors of test participants. Other descendants of the immigrant may be found in Lehman, Layman Genealogy Handbook and its 2011 Supplement.

………………9. Fredrick Von L. Layman, b. 09 Apr 1931 in Cocke Co. ; d. 11 Mar 1996 in Cocke Co. The Test 76 participant is descended from Frederick. Result 76, at 37 markers, provides a good comparison to the Oberdiesbach family of Test 68. Application of the Walsh formula to compare Result 76 and 68, (the Oberdiessbach Switzerland family) knowing that the two participants could not have had a common ancestor in the last 12 generations (a generation is considered to be 25 years), their 37 marker comparison shows a better than even probability that they shared a common ancestor within about 200 years of Peter’s immigration. The odds of a common ancestor within 16 generations is 25%; 20 generations is 53%; 24 generations is 74%

Test 68, the Vechigen, later Oberdiessbach, Switzerland Connection of FamilyA.1.
        The participant who generated Result 68 is a resident of Worb, in the Emmental of Canton Bern, Switzerland. It is the only test done of a Swiss resident to date that closely matches our standard FamilyA.1 result. His ancestors are traceable to Freimettigen, located near Konolfingen and about nine kilometers south of Worb and perhaps 11 south of Vechigen. Baptism, marriage and death records beginning with the baptism of Elsbeth on 02 Aug 1691 by Hans Lehman and Anni Grunder may be found in the parish of Oberdiessbach (formerly Diessbach), some five kilometers further southeast. No record has been found of anyone named Lehman at Freimettigen earlier.  There were Lehman families at Buchholtersburg, Diessbach, Kurzenburg, and Huben in the Diessbach parish. Whether they were related to the Freimettigen and thus to the Radelfingen family, we do not know. We need more tests of Lehman residents of the Swiss Emmental. Hans Lehman and Anni Grunder baptized an earlier child, Daniel, at Vechigen on 06 Nov 1687. It is recorded that the family lived in the nearby village of Radelfingen. It may be reasonably concluded that Hans and Anni relocated from Radelfingen to Freimettigen, and thus from the parish of Vechigen to Diessbach, between 06 Nov 1687 and 02 Aug 1691. A comprehensive discussion appears in ch. 5 of Lehman Ancestors in the Swiss Emmental before Immigration .The family may be traced, with reasonable confidence, to the beginning of Kirchebuch records at Vechigen as follows:
..1. Benedict Lehman, b. abt. 1557 in Radelfingen, parish of Vechigen, Canton Bern, Switz. Benedict and Sara baptized seven sons at Vechigen verifiable by Kirchebuch records, so it is a fair assumption that he has many descendants. Our immigrant, Peter Leman, may be a descendant or, conversely, the common ancestor may be further upstream. All known descendants to the sixth generation appear on pp. 81-85 of Lehman Ancestors in the Swill Emmental before Emigration

Historical research has not made a connection between the ancestors of this participant and a Peter Lehman, baptized 20 May 1677 at Diessbach, but the geographic proximity makes him a distinct possibility to be the immigrant.   


Test 2, 3, 57, 107, 119, 122 and 149, descendants or probable descendants of Rudolph Lehman  
        All of the  participants generate test results consistent with each other and with there being a common ancestor of  Peter and Rudolph within no more than a half-dozen generations before their emigration, but he has not yet been identified with certainty.

.…...3. Christian Lehman, b. bef. 10 Oct 1745 in York Co., PA; d. abt 1797 in Hellam Tsp., York Co.. 
Your compiler, as well as other researchers, have relied on John Kilbourne’s research reported on York Co. Historical Society letterhead and dated 13 May 1955. It appeared to document with sound research  the premise that Christian was the son of Peter and Mary; or, at the least, reared in their household as a son. Kilbourne apparently failed to give serious consideration to Rudolph’s will in which he referred to Christopher as “my son.” Thanks in large part to recent research led by a descendant, Robert L. (Bob) Lehman, the question of the identity of  Christian's parents appears resolved. The Christopher named in Rudolph's will and the Christian who m. Catherine Neukomett and whose birth date we now estimate as "bef. 10 Oct 1745," were the same person.  Kilbourne's conclusion that Christian was the son of Peter, b. abt 1726, and his wife, Maria, was error. Christian was the youngest child of Rudolph and his wife, Frena.  If whoever drew Rudolph's will, or the clerk who transcribed it for recording, had added the word "other" before the word "children;" the will would make perfect sense. The Christian erroneously assumed by Kilbourne to have been Christian, b. bef. 10 Oct 1745, named in the will of Abraham Lehman, was actually Christian, b. abt. 1760 to Peter Lehman of York Tsp. and his wife, Maria (Mary). The latter Christian  married Rosanna McClean on 25 Sep 1781 in the First Reformed Church of York, PA. His will was probated 30 Mar 1822 in York Co. and recorded in Will Book J. p. 362. The Christian named in Abraham's will, executed 11 Mar 1805, was referred to as a living person. Christian who m. Catherine Neukommett died in 1797. Hopefully, this will settle the matter.

Tests 14, 56 and 62, descendants of Christopher Layman of Jefferson Co., TN.
..1 Christopher Layman, b. abt. 1780 in Europe; d. abt. 1835 in Jefferson Co., TN. Christopher has previously been speculated to be the son of David, but that theory has been admittedly weak.  He is now believed to be an immigrant, Although it cannot be considered proven, it is now believed that Christopher is the Joh. Christ. Lehmann, who arrived in Philadelphia aboard the New York on 08 Sep 1801. This theory fits well. It would be expected that the saint’s name, Johann, would be discarded, as was the custom. It follows, if this is correct, that the change from 12 to 13 at dys 439 took place upstream of the common ancestor of Christopher and Peter but downstream of their common ancestor with Andreas, Hans and Rudolph.

The ten-marker Test 13 has been refined to 37 markers. The result demonstrates that Hans of Manheim had his origin, as did Peter and Rudolph, in the Test 68 Oberdiessbach  family. Application of the Walsh formula tells us that, considering the fact that Daniel R. Lehman and Andreas Lehmann could not have had a common ancestor in the last 12 generations, their 37-marker comparison shows that the probability that they shared a common ancestor within the last 12 - 16 generations is 40%; 20 generations is 69% and 24 generations is 86%. The Peter Leman descendant result closest to this one is Result 77, Lawrence Meredith Leaman, a descendant of Peter’s second American-born son, John. The difference is 3 changes out of 37 markers. Knowing that Daniel R. Lehman and Lawrence M. Leaman could not have had a common ancestor in the last 12 generations, their 37-marker comparison shows that the probability that they shared a common ancestor within the last 12 - 16 generations is 61% and 20 generations is 86%. Comparison of Result 13 with Result 1 and considering that Daniel R. Lehman and Earl R. Layman could not have had a common ancestor in the last 12 generations, shows that the probability that they shared a common ancestor within the last 12 - 16 generations is 44% and 20 generations is 77%.  The common ancestor is in Switzerland earlier than their immigration.
 

Tests 9, 4, 7, 122, 127 and 137   
        These participants are close relatives of the immigrants, Peter, Rudolph and Hans and of each other. Conventional research has not yet identified their immigrant ancestor but DNA tests provide some answers.
       All proven descendants of Peter show a value of 13 at dys 439, Marker 9. Descendants of Rudolph and Hans, and the Worb, Switz. resident's Test #68 show a 12. We can conclude that the change came about in the Peter line downstream of the common ancestor of Peter and either and all of the other three. Inasmuch as descendants of 3 different sons of Peter all show the change from 12 to 13 at dys 439, the change was upstream of Peter. Accordingly, those Family A.1 participants in the DNA project who have not been able to trace their line to their immigrant and who produce a 13 at dys 439 can probably conclude that their Immigrant is Peter. Those who generate a 12 at dys 439 probably descend from either Rudolph or Hans. Use of  the qualifier, "probably" is necessitated by the fact that the existence of a fourth and yet unidentified early Family A.1 immigrant cannot be ruled out. Unfortunately, no similar distinguishing feature between Rudolph and Hans is apparent. Ch. 6 of  Lehman, Layman Genealogy Handbook is devoted to these families. .

…………+Freda Ruth Evelyn Kurry, b. abt. 1910. Participant 144 descends from Martin and Freda and, by reason of a 13 at dys 439, we know most likely from Peter.

Test 122
        The family name of this participant is DeGeer, so there is a name change, adoption, etc. in the line somewhere. The result, at 37 markers, differs from each of two proven Rudolph descendants, Tests 80 and 107, by only one change at a single marker. That extrapolates to 71% and 78% probability of a common ancestor with each within the past six generations. A 12 at dys 439 makes it conclusive .

   

FamilyA.2  
        As we test more participants and do more comprehensive tests of 37, 67  and 111 markers, it is evident that our earlier conclusion that Family A.1 and FamilyA.2 were related was erroneous. That judgment was based on ten-marker Oxford Ancestors tests; all that we had at the time. Haplogroup   R-M269 appears in both families so, it may be argued that, in a broad sense, the families are related, but it has now become clear that any relationship is so remote as to be genealogically inconsequential.
        Additionally, based on ten-marker tests, it is possible that several families with this genetic signature, are genetically related to Christian who immigrated on the Thistle. Had there been no DNA testing, we would have had no reason to suspect that they were related to one another. They are traced to diverse locations in continental Europe and the British Isles. The family is the second most numerous after Family A.1. The majority of this family exhibits a Y-chromosome line of 13-24-14-11-11-11-12-12-12-13-13-29 on the 12-marker FTDNA's chart.  
        Historical research tells us that most  of the participants who yield this result are descendants of Christian Lehman who immigrated on the Thistle of Glasgow on 29 August 1730. Church records in Lachen-Speyerdorf, the Palatinate, prove that Christian was raised as the son of Hans Jacob Lehmann and his wife, Anna Barbara Just. These test results, however,  do not match those of Christian's brother Johannes.
          We have long recognized that no baptism record of Christian has been found. The absence of Christian's baptism record, considered in the light of his DNA not matching his brother, points strongly, perhaps conclusively,  toward  his having been adopted and that is almost surely  the explanation for the genetic mismatch. We have previously estimated a birth date for our Christian of 1697. He was confirmed in 1710 at which time he would have attained the age of accountability. Often it was not until the late teens. All of this squares with the theory that "our" Christian was not in the family when an infant was baptized "Christophel" on 04 Jan 1699 or when he died on 11 Jun 1699. It also squares well with our Swiss ancestors known  penchant for giving a subsequent child the same name as an infant who had previously died. All of this points to Christian being born no later than 1698; perhaps as early as 1692. but coming into the family after 11 Jun 1699. Thanks in part to the work of Jimmy N. Layman, a descendant, based on the multitude of DNA matches with people named Haas /Haass, we conclude that his biological parents bore that surname. That conclusion is supported by the fact that accompanying Christian on the Thistle of Glasgow were the Georg Ludwig Haas, b. 31 Jul 1703 family. He was perhaps a biological brother or cousin.
For additional explanation, see Family  C. 1.
        An additional consequence of the revelation of Christian having been adopted is that it is his brother, Johannes, Family C.1, and not he that is genetically traced to Leuzigen, Switz. 
        We originally included in FamilyA.2 these folks, differing from one another by no more than two genetic change on 10 or 12-marker tests. In the beginning, this was believed to indicate a relationship. This judgment is usually dis-proven when we obtain results of more comprehensive tests that either rule in or, as is usually the case, rule out, a relationship.

Tests 23, 26, 27, 73, 92, 113, 114, 128, 159 and 164; descendants, or possibly relatives, of Christian Lehman who arrived in Philadelphia on the Thistle of Glasgow on 29 August 1730 
        Participants 23 and 73
are proven by historical research to be descended from Christian through his grandson, George Layman and Barbara Baumgardner of Botetourt Co., VA. Test 23 was a ten-marker test and its result is the standard FamilyA.2 genetic signature for a ten-marker test. Test 74, earlier believed to be of FamilyA.2,  has been expanded to 67 markers. The result is designated Family P and is nowhere close to FamilyA.2. The results of ten-marker tests indicating a distant relationship between FamilyA.1 and FamilyA.2 likewise were misleading. There is no such relationship.
A determination of whether the descendants of Christian who immigrated on the Thistle of Glasgow, represented by these tests, are actually related to other FamilyA.2 members must await the results of tests more comprehensive than ten markers. The lines of descent are as follows:
..1. Christian Lehman, b. abt. 1698 in Lachen-Speyerdorf, the Palatinate: d. aft. 11 October 1748 in Upper Sulford Tsp., Philadelphia Co., PA. His will was probated 29 Apr 1749 in Philadelphia Co., now Montgomery Co, PA.

Tests 20 and 25
       
Two descendent of Alexis (Electas) Lemmon, who is believed to have immigrated to this country from Ireland, yield identical test Results, 20 and  25, which is the standard  ten -marker Family A.2 result. The participants trace their lines to the British Isles. A relatively recent common ancestor with the Christian who immigrated on the Thistle of Glasgow is possible.

 Test 24
        A participant yielding Result # 24, who lives in the United Kingdom, traces his ancestors no further into the past than his grandfather who lived on the Isle of Mull off the west coast of Scotland. No other data was made available. His Y-chromosome line is a match to Christian who immigrated from the Palatinate on the Thistle of Glasgow.


Family A.3, an Irish family with possible Swiss Mennonite cousins  
 
Test  22 and 17
        These ten-marker tests are identical to each other. They differ by one change in the nine common markers from Family O.  All this tends to suggest that  possibly the two participants who are descended from immigrants who came to the New World from Ireland may be related to the Mennonite family from the Swiss Emmental. If true, it accordingly would follow that the Irish families may have been transplanted earlier to Ireland from the Swiss Emmental. Consider the following quote:
        "In the 19th Century, it was recorded that
in the fall of 1709, three thousand six hundred “Germans” were transferred from England to Ireland. They were seated upon unimproved lands in the county of Limerick, near Arbela and Adair; others, in the town of Rathkeal, where their descendants still reside (written in 1800's), and are still known to this day as German Palatines, preserving their true character for industry, thrift and honorable dealing. Persons who have lately visited them say;

They are the most wealthy and prosperous farmers in the county of Limerick. They still speak the German Language"

Family A. 6
Test 49

        Ancestors are said to be from the LaMont Clan of Scotland but no further data was made known to the compiler. 

Family A. 7  
Test 47

        Robert Lemmon is believed to have come to the New World from Ireland. The test has been extended to 37 markers and it differs from Test 27, a descendant of William of Rockingham Co., NC, by one change in the nine common markers. The Test 27 line is presently carried as Family A.8 . Inasmuch as one change in nine markers, coupled with matching surnames, suggests but does not prove a relationship we will leave things as they are until more proof is forthcoming..
FTDNA's database contains numerous relatively close matches to this result. Sadly, none are Lehman or a derivative. the closest and most numerous being Macdonald and other Scotch flavored surnames.

Family A.8
Tests 26 and 27, William Lemonds of Rockingham Co., NC  and Test 142 
       
William Lemonds located himself on the waters of Troublesome Creek in the southern portion of Rockingham Co., NC. Three participants, independently of and unbeknownst to one another, trace their ancestors to him. Tests 26 and 27 are ten-marker tests and they exhibit Y-chromosome lines differing from one another by one change at a single marker. 
 

Tests 26 and 27, William Lemonds of Rockingham Co., NC  
      
Test 26 differs from the standard FamilyA.2 result by one change, a 13 instead of a 12 at marker 9 on  Oxford’s score. Test 27 differs by two. On these limited ten-marker tests, they differ from the John Lemon of northern Rockingham Co., NC by 2 and 3 changes, respectively, indicating that the two Rockingham Co settlers were probably not  related.  For more on both Rockingham Co., NC families, click on the following link to see Nancy D.

Result 47,  expanded to 37 markers, differs from Result 27 by one change in the nine common markers. The Test 47 line is presently carried as a Family A.7. Inasmuch as one change in nine markers does not prove a relationship we will leave things as they are until more proof is forthcoming.

Test 142
        It is a 37-marker test and it matches Result 26 at all nine common markers. Based on the fact that it does not match Family A.2, this family is re-designated Family A.8.
        While a nine marker match does not prove a relationship, coupled with matching surnames, it certainly points in that direction. The common ancestor, if there is one, would be in the Old World.

NOTE: In the early days of DNA testing, based on ten-marker tests, it was believed that Families A.1 through A.7 were distantly related. Later, more comprehensive tests have dispelled that notion. The family label is for identification only and no significance should be attached to their all bearing a designation containing the letter "A."
