to Lehman, Layman Genealogy Handbook 2011 Supplement) 
         Tests 131-


    This Lehman, Layman, Lemon Genealogy, DNA Enhanced website came into existence for the purpose of keeping the Lehman (by any of a multitude of spellings) researcher abreast of developments brought about by research and by DNA tests. While DNA testing has, indeed, added a new and exciting dimension to discovering our family history, there is still much to be learned by old-fashioned historical research. Many Lehman family researchers continue to diligently pursue knowledge of their lines by conventional research and that is as it should be. Boiled down to its simplest terms, DNA tests only establish or disprove connections between bodies of knowledge previously acquired. Acquisition itself of the knowledge must be accomplished in a more conventional manner.
  In 2006 your compiler published in Lehman, Layman Genealogy Handbook what he had to then compiled on the various early Lehman immigrants and their known descendants, enhanced by 70 DNA tests. This page of the website subsequently has served the purpose of making available for the Lehman researcher information that has come to light subsequent to the publishing of Lehman, Layman Genealogy Handbook  in 2006.
    Lehman, Layman Genealogy Handbook, 2011 Supplement, now available for distribution,  is for the purpose of publishing, in a durable form for all Lehman researchers, present and future, information on descendants of the various early Lehman immigrants not known or not available when Lehman, Layman Genealogy Handbook went to the publisher. An additional 60 tests since that date added to the information. Orders for Lehman, Layman Genealogy Handbook, 2011 Supplement, at a cost of $8, can now be filled.
    Since the "cut-off" date for inclusion in Lehman, Layman Genealogy Handbook, 2011 Supplement, information continues to accumulate. It will appear here. It will commence with the data acquired as a result of Test 131 and go foreword. . Data acquired through Test 130 appears in Lehman, Layman Genealogy Handbook, 2011 Supplement, That same data, in a different formant, may be found on other pages of this website.
This page of the website now becomes, for want of more sophisticated terminology, a sort of  “Supplement to the Supplement.” It will make accessible data that has come to light after the compiling of Lehman, Layman Genealogy Handbook 2011 Supplement
       Here, chapter and page references are to Lehman, Layman Genealogy Handbook as augmented by the 2011 Supplement, and entries on this page are in the order in which they appear in the book. Text quoted from the original book or from the 2011 Supplement is in italics. Text comprising an addition or correction is in quotation marks.

Ch 5, p. 61
. (Supplement, p. 10). Delete the sentence beginning, "Christian's biological mother."  Substitute in its place the following: 
" Your compiler, as well as other researchers, have relied on John Kilbourne’s research reported in his letter dated 13 May 1955 on York Co. Historical Society letterhead for supporting the premise that Christian who m. Catherine Newkommett was the son of  Peter and Mary or, at the least, reared in their household as a son. Kilbourne apparently failed to read 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, questions relating to Christian's parents appear 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 one and 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 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, page 362. The Christian named in Abraham's will, executed 11 Mar 1805, was referred to there as a living person. Christian who m. Catherine Neukommett died in 1797. Hopefully, this will finally lay to rest questions that have bedeviled Lehman researchers for years." 

Ch 5, Supplement, p. 11. After the entry beginning "........+Susanna Arnold, b. 14 Dec 1800," insert the following:
……....5. Daniel T. Lehman, b. 14 Feb 1822 in Hellam Tsp., York Co., PA; d. 15 Jan 1890 in Hellam Tsp.

Ch 5, p. 80.  After the entry that begins, "....+Mary Murphy Miller, b. 04 Mar 1837," insert the following:
".......3. William Jessie Laman, b. abt. 1877 in Allen Co., OH d. 29 Jul 1958 in Allen Co.

........+Helen J. Frudley, b. abt. 1911. A descendant of Roy and Helen provides Result 150.
This is the line of Dave Koester, whose loyalty and expertise in serving as Technical Advisor for our Lehman web site is gratefully acknowledged. A 13 at dys 439 in Result 150 tells us that this family is probably descended from Peter.

Ch 6, p. 70. Delete the last sentence of the second paragraph, which begins, "Inasmuch as Results #66 and 68" and add the following paragraph:

    "In early 2013, analysis of all Family A.1 test results yielded the conclusion that, stripped to its simplest terms, Peter descendants produce a 13 at Marker 9, dys 439, while other Family A.1 descendants generate a 12. The Swiss cousin, Andreas, matches Rudolph and Hans descendants. We can  conclude that all proven descendants of Peter show a value of 13 at dys 439, Marker 9. Descendants of Rudolph, 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 conclude that their Immigrant is Peter. Those who generate a 12 at dys 439 descend from either Rudolph or Hans. Unfortunately, no similar distinguishing feature between Rudolph and Hans appears. This dould change as more comprehensive test results are recorded.

Ch 6, p. 71. Delete the entire paragraph beginning, "The participant who generated Result 66." Substitute in its place the following:
"The participant who generated Result 66, by reason of his producing a score of 12 at dys 439, may be concluded to be a descendant of either Rudolph or Hans but not of Peter."

Ch. 6, p. 76. At the end of the the first paragraph, add the sentence, "Test 131, by a George Allen descendant, produces a 13 at dys 439, proving this line to be descended from Peter."

.. ……4. David Lee Laman, b. 23 May 1936. His
descendant generates Result 131."  

Ch. 6, p. 83. Delete the entire paragraph beginning, "We learn as we go along" and add to the previous  paragraph  the sentence, "A 13 at dys 439 in Result 62 proves Participant 62 and accordingly Participant 14 and their ancestor, Christopher,  to be  descendants of Peter."

Family Z.8
Test 147

        The result matches 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 does not match Test 140. Accordingly, we can rule out Participant 147 being descended from or related to Rockingham Co., NC John. We cannot rule out Participant 147 and Participant 130 being related. We will, pending exploration of a relationship with Test 30, tentatively designate Test 147 as Family Z.8.

Family I. 1
Tests 79 and 152
This family, based on historical research, was believed to be related to William Lemonds, b. abt. 1744 of Troublesome Creek, Rockingham Co., NC. Further it was believed that Rockingham Co., NC family, based on early Tests 26 and 27, of limited scope, as believed to be related to Family A.2. We still don't know to a certainty whether the Rockingham Co. Family is related to Family A.2, but we do now know, based on a comparison of the nine common markers of  Tests 79 and 152 with Tests 26 and 27, that this Family I.1 is probably not related to the Rockingham Co., NC family.

Ch. 17, p. 193.  Following the sentence that begins, “ No further connection,” add the following:
”It may be time to put foreword the possibility that the Benedict who immigrated on the Phoenix on 15 Sep 1749 is the Benjamin who d. in 1788 in Shenandoah Co., VA and is the progenitors of Family C and whose line is described in detail in Ch. 13.“ These facts support that theory. Facts or arguments to the contrary are earnestly solicited:
1. Benjamin’s estimated birth year of 1723 squares well with an age of 26 at immigration.
2. Benjamin is proven to have been a German-speaking Swiss or German Mennonite. Benedict arrived with German-speaking Swiss and German Mennonites on the Phoenix.
3. The given name, Benjamin, is virtually unknown among the German and Swiss Mennonites while Benedict is prolific.
4. There are unrelated instances of the name, “Benedict.” among the Swiss and Germans being anglicized by to “Beniel” and perhaps other.
5. To the writer’s knowledge, no other arguable conjecture has been advanced as to Benjamin’s origin or of a New World accounting for Benedict who arrived on the Phoenix on 15 Sep 1749.
6.  To the writer’s knowledge, there is no known record of Benjamin prior to the immigration of on the Phoenix on 15 Sep 1749.
7. To the writer’s knowledge, there is no known record of any ilk, either in the New World or German-speaking Europe that is an impediment to the theory that Benjamin of Shenandoah Co., VA and Benedict who arrived on the Phoenix are the same person.

Ch. 17, p. 196. Following the foregoing entry, add the following:”
    "Listed in the original book were 16 pre-1755 Lehman immigrants of whom no living descendant had bee identified. In the ensuing seven years, either a descendant has manifested himself or light has been shed in some other way on that immigrant.

19. Jacob Lehman arrived in Philadelphia aboard the Candide 19 Aug 1786. It cannot be ruled out that he is the Jacob Layman, b. abt 1767, on the Adams Co., OH 1850 U.S. Census.
