The Search for Pepper DNA!

Published: 28 May 2016
Updated/Edited: 10 July 2016

In order to find out where our Hamilton/Pepper line connects to the main Hamilton branches, we need to find living male descendants of Joseph¹ Pepper, Joseph² Pepper, and Joseph³ Pepper. If we can find these living males then we may be able to get them to join the Pepper Y-DNA Project to compare their Y-DNA with ours.

This is how our PAPER trail goes: (For Judy and Teresa)
1. ROBERT PEPPER* (English Immigrant Ancestor) married ELIZABETH JOHNSON* at Roxbury* on 14 March 1642*.
2. JACOB PEPPER* married ELIZABETH PAINE* at Roxbury* on 16 Feb 1684/5*.
3. JOSEPH PEPPER¹* married ANNA YOUNGMAN*.
4. JOSEPH PEPPER² married DINAH CUMMINGS.
5. JOSEPH PEPPER³ married PERSIS BARTLETT.
6. THOMAS PEPPER* married LUCRETIA MAGOON*
7. PORTER PEPPER* married PERSIS ELVIRA DEARTH*
8. JOHN PROUTY PEPPER* married JANETTE STRICKLAND*
9. GEORGE WARRINER PEPPER* married DELIA BRIDGET JACKSON* (Y-DNA is HAMILTON and NOT PEPPER!) (George’s ONLY brother was WILLIAM HENRY PEPPER)
10. JOHN PROUTY PEPPER* married REITA GERALDINE BISHOP*.

COLOR CODING:
GREEN
means he has a male descendant
. (Every male begins green until proven otherwise.)
RED means he does not have a male descendant for Y-DNA testing.
