Test 46
        John Lehman in Butler Co., OH, b. abt. 1810, is the earliest known ancestor in this family. There are nine common markers with Test 94 and all match. This test would have to be expanded to more markers before we can rule in or out a relationship but a match, even at only 9 markers, suggests one.
..1. John Laymon. b. abt. 1810; d. abt. 1840
….2. John Fry Layman, b. 1834 in Butler Co., OH; d. 1922 in San Joaquin Co., CA

……4. Oliver Wendell Layman, b. 1894 in Alameda Co.; d. abt. 1952 in San Francisco Co., CA 

Family I
Test 60
        A participant who resides in Bern, Switzerland has not traced his ancestry, but his family, as far into the past as he is aware, lived at Arni, near the town of Biglen in the Swiss Emmental. His ten-marker result is not close to any other. It is possible that no members of this family were early immigrants to the New World. Conversely, it is possible that some of those early immigrants, descendants of whom have not yet been found and tested, were relatives of this participant.

Family I.1
Test 79
This family, based on historical research, was believed to be related to William Lemonds, b. abt. 1744 of Troublesome Creek, Rockingham Co., NC.  Further, that Rockingham Co., NC family, based on early Tests 26 and 27, tests of limited scope, was believed to be related to Family A.2. We still don't know whether the Rockingham Co. Family is related to Family A.2, , but we do now know, by reason of this 67-marker test, that this Family I.1 is not related to the Rockingham Co., NC family. It is Haplogroup R-M269, matching  surnames on the FTDNA database suggest, but by no means prove, that the family came from Scotland.

Family J
Tests 50 and 51
Abraham Leming appears on the Greene Co., TN 1850 U. S. Census as Abraham Lemmons, household # 163-295, age 86, b. in Virginia 1763 or 1764. The possibility is strong that Abraham’s age is substantially overstated on the 1850 census. He is probably not an immigrant himself and is a bit later than most of the others whom we have analyzed. Considerable effort has been applied to Abraham’s line, however. This came about partly as a result of his line being easily confused with that of David Lamon of adjacent Washington Co., TN, Family A.1, Test 57. David had a son, Abraham, named in his will. There remain uncertainties about Abraham’s age, when he arrived in the upper East Tennessee area and, of course, we know nothing of his ancestors. Results 50 and 51 are  identical at ten markers.

Family L
Tests 55, 82, 85, 153 and 164
        Hans Lehman arrived aboard the James Goodwill 30 Sep 1727. It was the first ship carrying a Lehman immigrant into the port of Philadelphia for which a passenger list was recorded and preserved. Based on that fact, many an inexperienced Lehman researcher has erroneously assumed that Hans was that researchers immigrant ancestor. He was a German-speaking Mennonite and became a Bishop in the Hernley Mennonite Church in Lancaster Co., PA. It is said that he was from Canton Schlaufhausen, Switz. All known descendants, to the fourth generation, are chronicled in Ch. 11 of Lehman, Layman Genealogy Handbook. The Haplogroup is I-M170.

Test 85        
        The result definitely matches proven descendants of the immigrant, Bishop Hans Lehman, Family L. Unfortunately, your compiler cannot find proof to verify the connection between

Family M
Test 177
This family traces its ancestry to an Adam, b. c. 1745 in Pennsylvania. That Adam was believed to be the Adam of Family Q who was born about the same time.. The test results, however, do not match our four existing Family Q tests. We will proceed on the theory, until evidence to the contrary appears, that we have the wrong Adam and this family descends from a previously unidentified immigrant.

Family N
Test 180
The ancestral line is believed to trace to Johann Gottfried Lehman who arrived in Philadelphia aboard the Snow Louther on 14 Oct 1731The test result has no match in the Lehman Project. It falls into Haplogroup J-M172 which is found most often in the northern Middle East, west of the Zagros Mountains in Iran to the Mediterrean Sea. 

Family O
Test 67, 69, and 130  
The results are all identical at 12 markers. The only one of the first three to be tested to more than 12 markers is Participant 69 and he is not a match for anyone in the Lehman project. Until we have more comprehensive tests of Participants 67 and 130, we cannot be sure whether either of the three is related to another. Neither can we rule out either or all three being related to Family A 3. Because of the non-match at 37 markers, we can rule out Participant 69 being related to Family O 1, but cannot rule that out for Participants 67 and 130. Based on the perfect matches at 12 markers and indications along the “paper trail” of a relationship, we tentatively group these three together.

Test 67
        The ancestors of Participants  67 and 69 are traced to Canton Bern, Switz. The Test 67 family has been traced to a Hans Lehmann, b. abt. 1740 at Langnau in the Swiss Emmental. Unfortunately, Hans has not yet been linked to the considerable research at Langnau that makes up Ch. 9 of Lehman  Ancestors in the Swiss Emmental before Emigration. The immigrant was Christian, b. 15 Jan 1805 in Corgemont, Switz. 
..1. Ulrich Lehman, b. abt. 1715 in Europe

……….….+Inez Marie Habegger, b. 21 March 1912 in Adams Co., IN; m. 28 Nov 1935 in Adams Co.; d. 13 Sep 2002 in Melbourne, Brevard Co., FL. The participant who produced Result 67 is descended from Edgar and Inez.

Test 69

            The participant is descended from Hans Lehman, b. abt. 1740 and d. abt.1810. He lived in the Jura area of Canton Bern. The Jura was often a temporary haven for Swiss Mennonite refugees and it has been speculated that his ancestors were fugitives there from somewhere else, most likely the Emmental. Again, however, the family has not been linked to research in Swiss parish church records detailed in Lehman Ancestors in the Swiss Emmental before Emigration
..1. Hans Lehman, b. abt.1740 in Winung, Jura, Bern, Switz.; d. 1810. His wife is not identified.

..........5. Daniel Lehman, b. abt. 1877 inWayne Co., OH
…………6. Lewellyn Lehman, b. abt. 1905. The participant who generated Result 69 is descended from Lewellyn.

Test 130
       At 12 markers this result matches both Family O and O.1, but non-matches at 37 markers tell us that the two families are unrelated. Thus he cannot belong to both. A simple expansion of the test would answer the question. The line is traced by the participant to the immigrant, Abraham, gen. 5. Generations one through four are taken from David Habegger’s Lehman Families of Langnau, Switzerland. David Habegger, who has two different Lehman ancestors related to Family O, suggests that gen. 2 below,
Peter, b. 17 Jun 1736, may be a brother of Ulrich, who is Gen.1 of the Test 67 line.
..1. Peter Lehman, b. abt. 1707 in Hindelbank, Switz.
..+Anna Ingold, b. abt. 1707 in Hindelbank

…………..+Ellen Fisher, b. 26 Nov 1924 in Adams Co.; d. 16 Aug 2010 in Adams Co. Participant 130 descends from Leroy and Ellen. 

Family O.1 
        Results 78 and 88 differ by only two changes in 67 markers. They are produced by close relatives. Participants 88 and 123 have a proven common ancestor. Chances appear to be good that Peter, b. abt. 1795 of Test 78 and Tobias, b. abt. 1788 of Tests 88 and 123 are brothers. Further fair speculation is that this immigrant ancestor arrived through the port of New York; not Philadelphia as did most of our early Lehman ancestors. 
        There may be a relationship between Family O.1 and one or both of Participants 17 and 22, presently constituting Family A.3. There is a difference of one change over the nine common markers.

Family P 
Tests 58 and 74
These participants are proven by conventional research to be descended from Peter Lehman, b. abt. 1702, died in 1748 and whose will is recorded in Lancaster Co., PA Will Book Y, vol. 2, p. 394. His descendants are described in detail in the work of Howard Lehman Spessard, A Brief History of the Lehman Family and Genealogical Register of the Descendants of Peter Lehman of Lancaster Co., PA. We now know what Spessard was unsure of; that he was not the son of Peter Leman of Family A.1. The line of descent from Peter to the latest ancestor of each participant is as follows:
..1. Peter Lehman, b. abt 1692 in Europe; d. 1748 in Lancaster Co., PA. His first wife’s name is unknown.

The Test 58 and Test 74 participants have a proven common ancestor, the Peter who d. in Lancaster, PA in 1748. Result 58, a ten-marker Oxford test, showed one change from the standard Family A.2 result, thus misleading us into believing that this line was related to Family A.2. The more comprehensive Test 74 of a proven relative dispels that notion. A retest of Result 74 proves that there is no error. This family is unrelated to Family A.2. 

Test 93 
        The participant is a resident of Steffisburg, Switz. His line is Steffisburg Family 2 and is traced in Ch. 6 of Lehman Ancestors in the Swiss Emmental before Emigration from the beginning of Kirchebuch records at Steffisburg to his most recent ancestor as appears below. At 37 markers, he differs from Result 74 by only three changes. Utilizing the Walsh formula, this extrapolates into a chance of a common ancestor within 12 generations of 75.68 percent; 16 generations of 90.75 percent. See Appendix for exact values.

In examining all descendants of Martin Lehman and Barbli Hebysen, we find a baptism record of a Peter Lehman, b. 19 Dec 1690 whom we can connect to no adult records. He could have died before maturity or he may be a Peter who appears as an adult in another parish. On the other hand, while by no means proven to a certainty, he may be Participant 58, 74 and Howard Lehman Spessard’s immigrant ancestor. 

Family Q 
Tests 89,103,128,162 and 166
       It is apparent that we have been guilty of perpetuating a  significant error of long standing in this family. 1t had become established that Jacob who arrived on the Brothers 16 Sep 1751 brought a wife and children; now established as Family Q. Those children have been accompanied by precise birth dates for baptism in the Palatinate. We have now turned up in the records of the Bergstrasse Lutheran Church, Ephrata Tsp., Lancaster Co., PA those identical birth dates for  children with identical names . These people with baptism records in Lancaster Co. before the arrival of the Brothers cannot have immigrated on the Brothers and cannot be descendants of Jacob who did. This error may have its origin in the 1980s in Logsden, Laurine Mae Palmerton , Layman- Lehman Records and Lines. Baptisms clearly of record in Pennsylvania have been carried as being in Europe. The Jacob on the Brothers is not proven to relate to Family Q and we are apparently left without a test of a descendant of him. 
        What we do have is five tests that match genetically with no historical connection between any of the five.

..1. Jacob Layman, b. abt . 1718. This estimated birth date is based on his baptizing 4 children in Lancaster Co. bet 1742-1750. Odds are that he was an immigrant and arrived in Philadelphia before preservation of ships lists began in 1727. The records of the Bergstrasse Lutheran Church, Ephrata Tsp., Lancaster Co., PA where he baptized four children do not show the name of the mother so his wife's name is not known.
....2. Jochin Lorenz Lehmann, b. 27 Aug 1742 in Baden-Durlach. He immigrated as a child with his parents aboard the Brothers, arriving at the port of Philadelphia on 16 Sep 1751.

Test 103
        It is a 37-marker test and is a match for Test 89 at the 12 common markers. Participant 89 is traced to Jochin Lorenz Lehman, b. 27 Aug 1742. Research traces the Test 103 line to a William Henry Layman who was previously believed to be the son of Daniel, b. abt. 1808

Family R
Tests 94 and 173
        The family is
Haplogroup R-M269, our most numerous.  These two 19th Century immigrant families match at 12 markers.

.......... 5 Ralph Lehman, b.  15 Nov 1922 in Lewis Co., NY

Test 173

..1. Christian Layman, b. 1759  in Europe; d. 1810. Inasmuch as Participant 94 is said to trace his line to Lorraine, Fr.; it is fair speculation that this line is from there also buy that is unproven.

Family S
Tests 95
and 96
        Two residents of Richterswil, near Zurich, Switz. participated. They suspected that they might be related to one another but had no knowledge as to how. Inasmuch as they are members of an old Richterswil landowners society (Allmendkorporation) their families must hive lived there since at least 1601. Accordingly, a common ancestor would have been earlier than that. At 12 markers, they were identical to one another and were a perfect match for Test 76. Participant 76 is a descendant of the author’s great-grandfather, Preston’s older brother, Jacob. With eager anticipation, Test 95 was expanded to 37 markers. Sadly, at 37 markers, Result 95 differs from Result 76 by a whopping nine changes. That extrapolates to no significant relationship and stands as still another reminder that 10 and 12-marker tests simply aren’t always reliable. The foregoing tells us that, since we have no match for the Richterswil participants, probably no member of this family was an early immigrant.

Family T
Test 98 
        The participant has traced his ancestors to the LaMont Clan. No further information was provided. There are no matches with anyone with the surname "Lehman" by any spelling. Most matches are about equally divided between  Findlay, Washington and Wylie. The Haplogroup is R-M269, the same as many Swiss.

Family V

Test 101
The participant is a resident of Dudingen, Canton Freiburg, Switz. He has no knowledge that his forefathers ever lived anywhere else but traces his ancestors only to his grandfather. There is no match, again pointing to the likelihood that there was no member of this family who was an early immigrant. 
..1. Peter Lehman, b. abt. 1900 in Dudingen, Canton Freiburg, Switz. 
..+Anna Falk, b. abt. 1902 
....2. Joseph Lehman, b. 26 Jul 1925 in Dudingen 
....+Elizabeth Stadelmann, b. abt. 1927 

Family W
Tests 18, 63, 70, 105, 129 and 141
As will appear, four of the six participants represented by these tests have traced their ancestors to a Jacob Lehman, b. 1764 in Frederick Co., MD. This is the line of Laurine Mae Palmerton Logsden who published Layman-Lehman Records and Lines in the 1980s. Tests 105 and 129, at all 12 common markers, are precise matches for Tests # 63 and 70, both present-day residents of the Swiss Emmental. The ancestors are Langnau Family 4 as it is documented in Lehman Ancestors in the Swiss Emmental before Emigration. We can interpret this to constitute convincing evidence that this family's ancestors are Langnau Family 4 and were probably part of the late 17th Century flight of Swiss refugees, many of whom followed the now-familiar pattern of finding a temporary stopping-off place in Alsace or the Palatinate before coming to the New World. We need to expand the test of at least one of the Swiss matches to rule out a false positive due to only 12 common markers. From all appearances, we have another family connected by DNA tests to Swiss Emmental roots.

The Haplogroup is I-M253. Haplogroup I dates to 23,000 years ago, or older. The I-M253 lineage likely has its roots in northern France. Today it is found most frequently within Viking/Scandinavian populations in northwest Europe and has since spread down into Central and Eastern Europe, where it is found at low frequencies. Haplogroup I represents one of the first peoples in Europe.

Families Z 
        Some test results do not match results of any other test or, in some cases, other tests generated by one or more individuals proven to have descended from a believed common ancestor. As to some, the posibility exists that we are dealing with a descendant of a previously-undocumented immigrant. The explanation may be am adoption, name change, false paternity, etc. In other words, the individual tested may not be genetically descended from the ancestor that he believes himself to be descended from. See the “About DNA Testing” page for further discussion of this subject. Some of those results we will designate as Category Z. For the exact scores at all markers tested, see the “Appendix” page. 

Family Z.1
Test 160

The earliest known ancestor may be a late 18th Century immigrant. The Haplogroup is R-M512.
..1. Frederick Layman, b. abt. 1786 in Europe            
….2. Wilson Layman, b. abt. 1811 in Pennsylvania      
……3. Wilson Layman, b. abt. 1849 in Pennsylvania

Family Z.2
Tests 99, 102 and 116
         These 3 tests have all  been expanded to 37 markers and are confirmed  as close cousins. These participants trace their ancestry respectively to a Jacob Lemon and a Thomas Jefferson Lemon, both of whom were raised in Botetourt Co., VA as sons of Frederick Lemon, b. abt. 1757 and his wife, Mary Seh. Frederick's line is Family C. 1 and the two do not match genetically. Additionally, information supplied by Jacob's son, Jacob, b. 1834, on the elder Jacob's death record names the elder Jacob's parents to have been a yet unidentified "John and Betsy." Haplogroup is R-M269. The lines of descent are:
..1. Jacob Lemon, b. 1793 in Botetourt Co., VA
..+Mary Wier Crawford, b. abt. 1795 in Botetourt Co.
....2. William H. Lay Lemon, b. 1833; d. 1865

Families Z.4 and Z.5
Tests 109 and 110
These participants are nephew and uncle. Their line has been convincingly traced to
John Layman, b. 1824 to 1826 in Sevier Co., TN. His family appears on the Sevier Co., TN 1850 U. S. Census, household # 141. He is almost surely of Family A. 1. The two tests not only do not match Family A. 1 but they do not match one another nor any other test to date. The direct line is:
..1. John Layman, b. bet. 1824 - 1826 in Sevier Co., TN; d.  03 Dec 1869 in Sevier Co.
.. +Virena Thurman, b. 1826; d.  04 Jan 1911 in Sevier Co.
….2. Daniel Layman, b. 14 Jul 1848 in Sevier Co.; d.  24 Jul 1921 in Sevier Co.
….+Orleans Baxter, b. abt. 1850 in Sevier Co.; m. 18 Jan 1882; d. 11 Sep 1902 in Cosby, Cocke Co., TN
……3. William Hudson Layman, b. 02 Jul 1886 in Cocke Co., TN; d. 11 Jul 1958 in Knox Co., TN
……+Nannie Wilson Martin, b. 06 Feb 1899; m. 14 Feb 1921; d. 25 Mar 1987 in Roane Co., TN
……..4. Jewell Ory Layman, b. 05 Dec 1932 in Little Rock, CA; d. 23 Dec 2005 in Warner Robbins, GA

Family Z. 6
Test 134
,..1. William H. Lehman, b. 1825; d. 18 Mar 1877
....2. William Isaac Lehman, b. 1872; d. 1947
......3. John Wesle Lehman, b. Nov 1901; d. 1977
........4. John Wesley Lehman, b. 21 May 1921; d. 30 Jun 2000. A descendant produces Result 134. It has no match. We may  have here descendants of a yet-undocumented immigrant. Conversely, the more likely explanation may be an adoption, etc. The haplogroup is E-M78

Family Z.7
Test 161
        The participant traces his line with certainty only to Harvey G. Lehman, b. 1871. The result does not match any other  in the study. The family is tentatively designated Family Z.7. FTDNA designates it Haplogroup R-M269. It cannot be ruled out that he is descended from one of the early 18th Century immigrant  of whom we have heretofore been unable to identify a descendant. There are still forty  or so out there. 
        A recently surfacing family story explains the mis-matching score by a workplace rape resulting in gen.2.
..1. Harvey G. Lehman, b. 1871; d. 1950
..+Clara Fetrow, b. 1870
....2. Ralph Lehman, b. 1891; d. 1973
…. +Grace R. Lutsinger, b. Abt. 1892
……3. Harvey Lehman, b. 1918; d. 2003
…… +Flo Markley, b. abt. 1920. Participant 161 descends frm Harvey and Flo.

Family Z.8
Test 147 and 182

        Both the test result and the historical research of these participants match. They descend from two different sons of Henry and Elizabeth Cretsinger. The results matche, at the 10 common markers Tests 28 and 30. The Test 28 participant, however, traces his line to John of Rockingham Co., NC, as does Participant 140 who has tested sufficient markers and Test 147 and 182 do not match Test 140. Accordingly, we can rule out Participant 147 and 182 being descended from or related to Rockingham Co., NC John. We cannot rule out Participant 147 and 162 being related to Participant 130 . We will, pending exploration of a relationship with Test 30, tentatively designate Test 147 and 182  as Family Z.8; Haplogroup  R-M269.
