Call for living males with Surname: Ankeny/Ankney/Ankeney for DNA Study

I and collaborators are working a research issue in my
Frederick line that relates to John Ankeny, Dewalt's third
son as he listed them in his will.

In most Dewalt Ankeny stories, John is identified as the
natural son of Dewalt's second wife: Margretha Becker and
her first husband: Noah Friederich. The stories are that
Dewalt adopted him, changed his name, and treated him as
a natural son in all ways.

On the Frederick side, there is a baptism record for a
John George Frederick, delivered by Margretha on 27 Mar 1757,
five months after Noah was killed by Indians. We find no further
records for him.

Y-Chromosomes are passed down through the male line. If
two DNA samples have matching Y-Chromosomes, then the probability
is high that they have a common male ancestor.

1. If our Frederick Y-Chromosomes matched that of a descendant of
John, then the research issues for both lines would be resolved.

2. If a descendant of John matched a descendant of an
accepted natural son of Dewalt, then the Ankeny issue would be

We request the help of anyone who can contribute DNA or information.
