Part 963sm - 6-Times Great-Grandmother Elizabeth (née Mitchel) Whittaker and mtDNA

12 September 2019

Good Day,

I have found some documents referencing my 6-times Great-Grandmother Elizabeth (née Mitchel) Whittaker. She and our 6-times Great-Grandfather John Whittaker were married the 3rd of January 1740 at the Parish Church of Whalley in Lancashire, England. I believe the church may have been St. Mary and All Saints.

Here is an image copy of the 1740 Marriage Registration –

My transcription –

January the 3d Married John WhittakerOf Pendleton & Elizabeth Mitchel of the
Castle parish of Clithroe.

On the full page, the header reads “The Year of our Lord God on thousand seven hundred and thirty nine”. Halfway down the page the year 1740 registrations begins with 6-times Great-Grandparents John Whittaker and Elizabeth Mitchel.

This discovery of GGGGGG-Grandmother Elizabeth is critical in the recreation of my genealogy and tracing of my mtDNA.

We all, in most cases have 64 6-times Great-Grandmothers. All are important in the passing of Autosomal DNA. But, 6-times Great-Grandmother Elizabeth (née Mitchel) Whittaker is an extremely important 6-times Great-Grandmother.

GGGGGG-Grandmother Elizabeth is that grandmother from whom my mtDNA is passed, passed from her down to me. MTDNA is passed from a mother to her children, but it is only daughters who continue to pass that specific gene. Sons may receive it along with their Y-DNA, of which they receive it from their father. Our mtDNA Haplogroup is H1a1a1.

Here is how the mtDNA was passed to me from –

6-times Great Grandmother Elizabeth (née Mitchel) Whittaker; bc. 1710, Lancashire, England, to

5-times Great-Grandmother Mary (née Whittaker) Tasker; b. 1753, Lancashire, England, to

4-times Great-Grandmother Isabel (née Tasker) Kendal; b. 1777, Lancashire, England, to

3-times Great-Grandmother Elizabeth (née Kendal) Parker; b. 1809, Lancashire, England, to

2-times Great-Grandmother Elizabeth (née Parker) Crossley; b. 1841, Lancashire, England, to

Great-Grandmother Mary-Alice (née Crossley) Goodey; b. 1864, Lancashire, England, to

Grandmother Madge (née Goodey) Robertson; b. 1891, Rochdale and Lancaster, England, to

Mother Josephine (née Robertson) Smith; Saint Andrew, Jamaica, to

Son Jim Smith; Saint Andrew, Jamaica. And there it will stop. That line of mtDNA will not be continued. Only daughters can pass on the mtDNA gene.

6-times Great-Grandparents John and Elizabeth (née Mitchel) Whittaker had, who I have been able to account for, 9 children – 6 sons and 3 daughters. Our specific mtDNA gene was passed along, if they had any offspring, by the 3 daughters.

And now, I have a lead on the possible mother of 6-times Great-Grandmother Elizabeth’s mother. This would be my 7-times Great-Grandmother, and another name to add to my mtDNA line. Also, this would be the most distant ancestor that I will be able to claim as a recipient of her mtDNA.

Remember, there are only 128 7-times Great-Grandmothers.

Your thoughts?

The search continues.  And I just keep on going.

Also, let me know if you would like an invitation to access to my Smith Robertson Family Tree on Ancestry. You can email me at jsmith58@gmail.com.

Jim
