Smith DNA Matched Group GRP-R-M269-49
discussion of the Smith Official DNA Project group R-M269-49 that includes lineages that we believe all match together, even when the specific paper trail linkages between ancestors are unknown or cannot be proven.
After the death of his first wife, he married Grace, teh widow of Thomas Hatch, and the following “Court Order” indicates he died before its date: “Oct 27, 1685- Administration is granted by this court to Grace Smith, relict of Ralph Smith and Samuel Smith, son to the said Ralph Smith, all of the town of Eastham, in the Colony of New Plymout in New England, deceased, on all goods and chattels of said Ralph Smith” (Plymouth Col Rec VI, 175)

For the Smith Official DNA Project (All Locations) a minimum of 25, or better, 37 YDNA markers, is strongly recommended. Many times one can appear to match other kits but the match falls apart after 12 markers. We do not attempt to match kits into groups on less than 25 with the exception of a strong paper trail or known family kinship with another tester.
