Thacker of Vinton Co., OH, and Louisa Co., VA - YDNA and Melungeon Roots

Posted: 1506864068000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Thacker, Gibson, Branham,
Was surprised to see it had not been mentioned here- The YDNA of direct Thacker males from the Vinton County, OH-area, previously of Louisa County, VA-area Thacker are showing their Melungeon roots. The YDNA on several direct males comes back as that of Gibson in the R1b haplogroup. (there is also a line of Gibson from this group with an African haplogroup) They tie to others borne out of the various Gibson, Branham, Vardy, Collins, etc. With the Louisa Thackers developing out of the Branham and Gibson Melungeon, this fits perfectly. You'd have to wonder if the roots of some from this group being called 'Thacker' has its origins in the connection that lead to Gilbert Gibson and a William Thacker listed together in a 1716 record of individuals ordered to clear a road. (My own YDNA is that of Swift -Flower Swift Militia Company- but that issue dates back only 105 years)
