When or if you do a DNA Family Tree there are many factors to consider as to how and why in the form of goals you hope to achieve.

At the Merrick Foundation our overall goals are to preserve family history and genealogy, and prove by genetic genealogy the lines of

the Merrick - Myrick - Meyrick lines of the descendants of the surname to document lineage, history and information for future generations.


So when considering where to do our research and DNA studies, we went with Family Tree DNA because the product offered in

FAMILY FINDER gave the greatest potential in matching cousins and family to the correct exact DNA evidence needed to fill in

the gaps of Haplogroups and markers needed for both Male Y DNA and female Mt DNA. Through this matching program, we

identified cousins and direct lines and recruited family to fill in our tree below and show how the lines are connected to each other

not just through marriage, but through common DNA ancestors.


DNA Family Tree Jpg


To determin the lines above and the matching DNA we found that other projects at FTDNA were also mapping Haplogroups and origins within the lines of interest

by my genealogy charts and family tree at Ancestry Com and other GEDCOM or DATA programs to trace genealogy files and matched to cousins who had the same

grandparents and common ancestors a I had.


My Paternal Grandmother is H1b with markers 315.1C 522.1A 522.2C (C152T)
with 6% Hebrew DNA from Poland Ukraine (My First Cousin H1b provided DNA)
Me with J1b1a2 309.1C 315.1C 522.1A 522.2C matches markers with above as
100% Israel Hebrew DNA My Mother's line.


This is unique in my sample in that my Father's Sister married my Grandmother's Brother. Let me explain.

My Mother Laura Sloan was the daughter of Ruby Trout. My father Robert's sister Irene Merrick married

Ruby's Brother Howard Trout. So my FIRST COUSINS were also SECOND COUSINS in that we shared

the same GREAT GRANDPARENTS in the TROUT LINE on both sides of the famiy in this one branch.


So my TROUT great grandparents appeared on BOTH SIDES of my Family Tree as THE SAME people.


Many GEDCOM programs become confused when this happens and when you get back to ROYAL LINES

where first cousins had married, and even in some cases where sisters and brothers married long ago, you get

programing anomilies that get even the best of programs confused when mapping the genealogy.


So due to this fact, we needed a entry of TWO of the same people for mapping family trees to prevent crashing of

programs that would lose tracing of grandparents in generations. Due to this, we got errors where our direct DNA

grandparents would generate reports that made them our cousins grandparents with batch programs to determin

ancestry lineage.

Now since my MOTHER's MT DNA matched my firsts cousins MT DNA at the same Great Grandmother TROUT
in that my MT Grandmother's brother married my Y Father's sister H1b, that means that J1b was also
my cousins Paternal Y Grandmother's DNA in that we both shared the same Great Grandmother
TROUT who was J1b.


Howard Trout was a son of MT J1b Trout married Merrick the sister of my father.
So that makes my Cousin both my First and Second Cousin once removed. WE shared both R1b
from the male Merrick line and H1b through the female Merrick/Redfield line.


My Father's mother Edna Redfiled was also my first cousins grandmother Merrick. So the Mt DNA

for HER was the same as my Y DNA father's Mother's Mt DNA in the tree which is H1b.

We also share J1b in our common Great Grandmother Trout which is my MT greatgrandmother and
her Y greatgrandmother. The R1b was a pre J1 line of levi according to Genealogy records.
Not a line of Aaron as Priest, but Merari as cousin with duties of a Levite in non
priestly biblical records as musicians and those who carried the tent of the temple.

Y DNA MALE TROUT is I-M253 matches the J1 & R1b lines of migration.
Y Migration Map
So my Y DNA is Merari son of Levi R1b My MT DNA is 106% J1b and 94% H1b out of 200% from my Dad's mother and my Mom's mother.

That makes me about 76% Hebrew in origin by DNA.

Yet when we mathc the Y DNA line from Wales we get a Royal British match exatly
in Genealogy and in Origin with pending Big Y results that will determin if
our common father of Edward 1 and William 1 of 1062 AD is the same route from
Stuart or from Winsor. It is possible that the Merrick/Myrick line is in fact
from both by Male DNA and that the appearance of J1 and J2 MT DNA is common
with both Wales and French coming from such ancestors as Ana of Keiv who married
the Royal house of Yaraslov to the House of Rominoff and Stuart.

WE find these matching DNA markers in my Mother's DNA also proving that the
Jewish Royal lines of Rominoff were in fact Queens with J1b and J2 DNA.

So when we gain insight by the Female lines Mt DNA Migration map for Haplogroups, we see

how and where our grandmothers which has the exact same DNA came to our DNA by origins.

Mt migration map

If we look at a Haplogroup migration map, we find that C branched off into F.
Then from F came J > I > J1 & J2 Also right where began J from F in the map
we find F > H which moved to India. Then F > K > P > R > R1a and R1b in Western
Europe and the British Isles. So if we ascribe to Biblical History rather than
Evolutionist History time line, F and H were the line of Abraham that gave birth
in a branch of mankind into J, G, K, I, P, H, and R. Noah would be B which had 4
Groups of A, B, C, and E which DNA proves the four MT DNA types all mankind came
from. We also have the break off of D from E and Q from P on the Y DNA map that is
of interest due to the fact that these lines became the American Indians mixed with
the lines of Hebrews who came to America during the Egyptian captivity which has
been proven by DNA and Historical artifacts found in Ohio, New Mexico and New York.

(Ohio Burial mound Artifact found in Native American site clearly shows the Hebrew

name of God or Tetragrammaton meaning the four letters of the sacred name of God

YHWH or YHUH depending on the time period of the four types of Hebrew lettering



When compared to the four types of Hebrew lettering systems which are classified as

 Early, Middle, Late and Modern, these letters match the Era of the Early to Middle

which dates to 1300 BC during the Egyptian captivity period. You may be thinking

this is all nice but what has it to do with my MERRICK DNA FAMILY TREE?


During the 1990s to 2000 CE just 17 years ago, Dr Davis from Oxford University

was studying the mummies of Egypt. She began testing the chemical contents of the

mummification process used by the ancient Egyptians. She tested over 200 mummy

bandages and discovered that every one came up positive for Coca and Nicotine.


Now since these products did not come to Europe until long after 1400 CE, she

thought that the samples were chemically contaminated by workers who had in the

1600s to 1800s had collected these mummies for the British Measuem.


Yet the fact that the chemicals and tabbacco was not just on the outside but under

the bandages lead her to rethink the modern history of how native americans

actually came to North America. If this was true, then History books would all

change overnight and the truth would upset the models of experts in institutions

like the Smethonian. So she suggested that the Egytians had come to America

during the Egyptian Empire during the era of about 1300 BC or BCE.


SO the only way left to prove this was to find Archealogical evidence that would

prove her theory. Thus Above the HEBREW EVIDENCE which was at the Smethonian

suppressed because it did not fit the "EXPERTS" and their version of History.


Next DNA testing was done and IF the DNA of Native Americans matched Egyptian

and Hebrew DNA, then Dr Davis would be proven correct. Thus if the Mt C to F Haplogroups

proved to be in the Native American DNA with J lines present, the Female lines from

a mixture of C, N, L and J could be proven and we would find it in decsendants of the lines

of Natives. In the Y DNA the we would also find these Mt DNA as well as Y DNA markers

that could prove the mixture of lines from Egypt and America, Hebrew and European with

later migrations. So to prove it we needed PURE DIRECT LINES to test.


Thus the MERRICK INDIANS of NEW YORK were tested where NO EUROPEAN

mix was found in the family tree and the result came back that they were in fact C and J

mixtures with the roots of L, N and H in Egypt.


So when I discovered this FACT of DNA science, I wanted to find out if my European Male

or Female lines had any such evidence of mixtrues since arrival in America during the 1400s

to today.


We have compared these HEBREW ROOTS to the MALE LINES of ROYAL LINEAGE

and found markers in SNP that lead us to a conclusion that these tribal groups did in fact as

DR DAVIS suggested, made history long before the history books reported it in error.

Male Royal = R1b1a2-M343-M269-L150-U106-Z375
with each SNP positive showing both Royal and Hebrew Roots (Middle East).

You Are an R1b1a2-M269-L150-U106-P25-M343-Z375

Confirmed Haplogroup is R-Z375

Haplogroup R-U106 is the descendant of the major R-P25 (aka R-M343)

lineage and is found from Eastern Europe to its highest frequency

in Central Europe and the British Isles. This is a ROYAL DNA LINE

confirmed by matching markers to the house of York and Windsor.

Paternal Grandmother is H1b showing the line from Alexandra and Phillip with Maternal J1b from line of King David. Mt matching shows Romanov and British lines of royalty with Hebrew roots. 


DNA on both Y and Mt lines are in fact Royal lines and can be traced back to the same line as Matthew the Grandfather of Yahshua more famously known as Jesus.

In the Mother's lines to the House of Romanov and the house of King Edward and Phillip in the H1b and J1b lines. The Key DNA Mt markers are in bold above.

According to Dr. Michael Hammer of the University of Arizona

the L23 line is the Leviticus line which is in Y DNA from the house of Merari and Aaron from middle eastern Hebrew genetic code.
The House of Windsor, Stuart and York as well as Mountbatten House of Oldenberg that spawned the Romanov and Germanic lines of Welsh and British monarchs all have the markers M343, M269, with U106 unique to the Windsor and Oldenberg line with P312 and L745 to the Stuart line.

Haplogroups include R1b, H1b, J1b and I with I-M253 being the Royal Germanic with J-M267 being the Royal Jewish. This tree has also the C1f lines of Royal American Natives in the Seneca and Mohawk tribes. The Romanov also has T and is not found as of yet in this line be the Mt Markers show the same HRV1 and HRV2 markers from the H1b lines verified by Royal DNA testing.

It has been verified the the unique R-Z375 is of Welsh origin to the direct lines of genealogy of King Llewellyn of Wales and King Charlemagne.This line also includes in the DNA family tree the SLOAN R-U106 that spawns the expression among royal lines as to who is royal be reference to their being "A Sloan".

The lines by surname in the United States that have been Identified as Royal Blood lines include:

CRAWFORD, SLOAN, MYRICK, MEYRICK, MERRICK, MERRITT and are classified under the codex or soundex of surnames as having at least one ancestor from M620 phonetic designation. M620 in not to be confused with and DNA marker but only the varied phonetic spellings of the names of lines associated to the surname family tree groups.

It is the educated opinion of the experts in genetic science of the family tree of mankind, that this DNA test is evidence of a long line of Hebrew and European Royal lineage that spawns by certified genealogical sources back for over 2000 years to many branches that had crown houses from many branches of the human family tree.

Y Fixed Sample Matched for comparison:

So when SNP markers show common DNA, and the Numbers in the DYS are within range of 1 or 2 of the
same Y DNA DYS for Royal lines, we must conclude that these are Cousins with common ancestors.

The Mt DNA with Russian origins shows that the MT DNA is a match and when we compare to the
Genealogy Family Tree we find that the Mother's lines trace back to the Royal, Hebrew and
Key historical people that one would presume given the DNA and Documented information are the same

Native American and Hebrew Egyptians who came in 1300 BC to gain Tabbacco and Coca for embalming

mummies in Egypt.


Thus we have a DNA Family Tree that shows by matching FAMILY MEMBERS to DNA SNP and Haplogroups

where our complete lines came from and who are historical ancestors of our grandparents and us.


When we looked at the C1f in our tree, we found a match in Genealogy in Dr Woman Mohawk and in the Simco

line as well as VAIL that traced to the Seneca which is believed to have come from the line of SIMION and DAN

in Hebrew Tribal Origins. Two key ancient symbols as a RIVER and SNAKE proves that along with DNA to the

tribe of DAN and other markers seem to suggest a match with SIMION or other tribes of Israel.


When we add MY DNA FAMILY TREE to the data, we find that with Genealogy we have not just Haplogroups,

but historical evidence of the origins of each line by DNA that traces back to the original tribes of Israel and America.


When combined with Royal samples of the Merrick Myrick line, we have a fuller picture of the actual footsteps of

our ancestors and can harvest from history their stories which fill volumes at the library.


For example our Garlock Line a J1b with C has a genealogy that lead us to the daughter of the Cheif of Mohawk during

the Revolutionary War. She married a British man who fought for the United States for independence and gave medical

care to wounded soldiers while in service with her husband. Her son married a Seneca woman from the group of these tribes

which make up the Merrick Indian and New York to Ohio group known as the Red house groups or Long house groups

of Native American tribes. The Same lines found in the Male Merrick lines in my DNA Tree show a man that comes

to fall in love with a Seneca woman who denies morals and norms of the era and marries her to come live on the tribal

lands which remain today in Seneca New York during the late 1700s to early 1800s.


When we combed through history and genealogical records with the DNA clues that lead us to the search, we found

a wonderful bounty of history and love stories that would give anyone the food of knowledge that ends up in Hollywood

scripts and Hallmark Movies.


Now if we can only get the scipt to the right directors and producer and find the resources to make the film, we could share

a beautiful history that could bring you to tears. That is what make me want to share with you my DNA Cousins

my famly tree in genealogy and history with the DNA proof that we were not just once Kings and Queens in Europe,

but once Kings and Queens of tribes in America and the authors of love stories that defy even Shakespear to tell

of the romance that was our Grandparents.

So my DNA results lead me to question where this Native American DNA was at in my unresearched family tree

genealogy. Where was the nearest relative at that I had not yet found in this American adventure romance novel

of history? Then when I traced on Ancestry Com the lines of VAIL and GALOCK I found this:


From the History of the Carlock (Garlock) Family

   French forces under Louis the 14th of France in 1688-1689 took power of  the Palatinate (Rhineland) and forced the German inhabitants out. The Palatine refugees fled the Rhineland to Holland.  Hans Gerlash was about 58 years old and his wife Anna Marie Kummer was 54, John Christopher about 17.  John Christopher changed his name to Garlock.  In about 1700, John Christopher married Ann Margaret.  Their children were born in 1701 (Ann Margaret), 1702 (Elias), 1704 (Theabold).  They were in Holland from about 1690 to 1708. In 1708, Queen Ann of England allowed about thirteen thousand of the refugees to emigrate to England where they were housed in refugee camps around London.  At that time the English Navy needed tar for ship repair and construction.  Governor Hunter of New York was advised that trees along both sides of the Hudson River would yield the pitch needed to produce the tar and this information was sent to Queen Ann.  The Queen assigned Dutch Clergyman Donnie Kocherhal to promote the idea of sending refugees to America to work the pitch and tar project for England.  The refugees would pay for their passage by working on the project.  About 3,000 people volunteered, including the four brothers (four of the seven children of Hans Gerlash), Conrad Gerlash, John Christopher Garlock, Peter Gerlash and David Carlash and their families.  In January, 1710,  five ships of total 12 set sail from England with the 3,000 Palatines aboard.  Two of the five ships and 470 immigrants were lost at sea.  In June, 1710, the remainder reached New York.  Another 250 died of fever after arrival.  Governor Hunter’s New Your refugee camp ration list included John Christopher and wife and 9 year old daughter and two sons.  Camps were established along the Hudson River to extract the pitch from the trees.  John Christopher Garlock was placed in the West Camp and later was made master of Garachdrop camp as a series of small camps to the north were established.  When the first pitch arrived in New York Camp it was discovered that the trees from which it came were of the wrong variety and the project was a failure.  Governor Hunter decided not to provide for the  2,000 refugees and they were left to fend for themselves.  The winter of 1712-13 was difficult, and in 1713, Queen Ann allowed them to move to Indian land.  The refugees cleared the land, built homes, and began to prosper.  Queen Ann decided to give them the land and sent Nicholas Beyard with the authority to give land grants to the refugees.  The refugees did not understand Beyard, were suspicous of him, and tarred and feathered him.  Beyard  then gave the land grants to others and the Palatine Refugees were again homeless.  John Christopher, now 50, and a small group of men crossed the Catskill Mountains into the Mohawk Valley.  Sometime between 1713 and 1719 John Christopher’s wife and daughter were lost.  John Christopher married an 18 yo Mohawk referred to as Doctor Woman.  John Christopher and Doctor Woman had five children, all born in Stone Arabia, Mohawk Valley, in the Colony of New York.  They were Elizabeth born about 1720; Nicholas about 1724; John Hans about 1730; Philip, 1732; and John Adam, about 1733.  John Christopher’s was 63 when his last child was born.  John Christopher and 27 other men obtained a patent land grant for 12,700 acres located north of the Mohawk River, about half way across Montgomery County and including part of Fulton County, as found on the map today.   He died at about the age of 92.John Hans Garlock, the 3rd child of John Christopher and Doctor Woman, was born about 1730.  In his early twenties he married an Indian woman “Brown Eyes” and settled in Palatine, Montgomery County, New York.  They had four children, all sons; John, born about 1750; Abraham, about 1752; William, about 1754; and Stephen, about 1756.  During the American Revolutionary War,  John Hans in his forties and his four sons, John, Abraham, William, and Stephen served  in Captain House’s Company, Clyde New York Regiment.   


The Evidence in the trail to this history was found in my DNA Family Tree that caused me to search out who these people were and how they

came to place in me a legacy of DNA that seemed inconsistent with bias and prejudice that would be expected in the lines of British immagrants.

It was not common in Victorian era America to find those who went against social norms and married into Native American lines. Often those who

did were shunned and driven out of public life and banned from churches and communities. Many laws of racial purity in some states were on the

books to attempt to prevent inter-racial mariage between Native Americans and Black with Whites. So when a family tree just 100 years ago

found a branch not included in the make op of Who is Who and Who is allowed to gain power and position in society, it was better left unspoken.

historical lineage that lead to Royal or reputation of long standing good Christian heretage looked better on the resume of those seeking marriage

and emplyment in the era of the late 1700s and 1800s in America.


So when we dig a littel deeper into the wills, diaries and recorded history we find a love story that shows how two people most unlikely feel in love.


Then to discover that because of their love, the Mohawk became allies with George Washington during the revolutionary war, adds a new perspective

to not just history, but the events about to happen to the Six Nations in the 1800s. With the added effect of the facts that these were MY ANCESTORS,

it brings home a hard point that hate and racial bias is also used to suppress history''s facts when the evidence is not fitting the narrative desired by those

in power. The Smethonian to this day keeps suppressed the Native connection to Hebrew tribes as well as the FACTS as they really happened

as the Post Revolutionary government drove most of the Seneca to be displaced from their native lands.


The Seneca are a group of indigenous Iroquoian-speaking people native to North America who historically lived south of Lake Ontario.

They were the nation located farthest to the west within the Six Nations or Iroquois League (Haudenosaunee) in New York before the American Revolution.

In the 21st century, more than 10,000 Seneca live in the United States, which has three federally recognized Seneca tribes. Two are in New York:

the Seneca Nation of New York, with two reservations in western New York near Buffalo, and the Tonawanda Band of Seneca Native Americans.

The Seneca-Cayuga Nation is located in Oklahoma, where their ancestors were relocated from Ohio during Indian Removal.

Approximately 1,000 Seneca live in Canada, near Brantford, Ontario, at the Six Nations of the Grand River First Nation. They are descendants

of Seneca who resettled there after the American Revolution, as they had been allies of the British and forced to cede much of their lands.


So we find in the VAIL line also that Letta a direct DNA mother to my lineage has C1f Haplogroup DNA.

Vail Haplogroup is C1f showing Native American Seneca match in DNA tracing back to six generations.

That is exactly where the trail of evidence in Genealogy ends on my family tree and this DNA evidence tells

me why. We find that many came back to England as the Revolutionary War loomed and that some were also

natives who had married into English lines of soldiers and immagrants assigned to duties of the crown. When they

returned to England with native wives, they had crossed over and within 2 to 3 generations were forgotten as even

having Native roots in America.

Update 2021:

I did a search at the Cherokee Ancestry Registry and found this:

So Here is the proof above that verifies the DNA and my ancestor Letitia Simmons for which we found the different spelling of the name as Simons. She was a Choctaw Native American and my 6th Great Grandmother. So we have found

through research with DNA and Ancestry Genealogy. I also found the Sawell name that relates to the Swailes below my 4th Great Grandmother in the Cherokee listing. So the story above of the Vail Lineage to Cherokee and Choctaw is

certified and documented. So in total proven Native roots I have 7% DNA that links to the tribes of Seneca, Mohawk, Choctaw and Cherokee lines. It is interersting and proven that these tribes used the name Yahweh and Yahuah as

their names for the Creator - The Great Spirit. Having C1f and J1b proven DNA Mt-Dna Jewish and Hebrew Tribal lines. Psalms 68:4 "Praise Him by His Name Yah, and rejoice before Him" 10-12-2021 Dan Merrick PhD

Thus I find Native roots on both sides of my Family DNA Tree which lead me to this publication of the facts.

Letitia has C1f Native American DNA which she passed on to her VAIL daughters in Mt DNA that tells us

where to look for her story.


From about 1600 onwards, the process of European colonization of North America by the English, French, Spanish, Dutch and Swedish was contested by various indigenous tribes. Wars and other armed conflicts in the 17th and 18th centuries included the following:


During these wars between the British and American natives, a young native woman marries a british soldier and gives birth to a child

that is half breed as recorded by DNA being C1f Mt DNA. Her father dies during the war and his child is unacommpanied back to England

to her white family with the unknown origins of the grandchild accepted in the knowledge of her father, their son's, death in battle.


Letita marries Joseph Simons and gives birth to  Elizabeth in England according to records there. They move to South Carolina in the United States

with no clue of the past native roots, Elizabeth marries and several generations closer to me her Mt DNA is found in her grandchild, my great Grandmother,

Peral B Vail. That DNA is Haplogroup C1f showing her Native roots coming from America to England and then back again.


Had it not been for DNA and my efforts to construct this DNA FAMILY TREE, I would not have known this story. When most genealogists come to a

dead end in their tree, they look everywhere for records to find out where the person came from. Hours are spent in research and even going to

the libraries and searching records in foreign countires to find a clue. So when we do a DNA Family Tree and gain relatives to participate, we find

that the DNA can lead us to where to look for records when none are obvious. Matching the history of the time known to be true, I found

ships records and war records that proved Letita's origins and her father's death in the wars from that era.


Once we access the British War Records we can trace who he was and fill in the family genealogy tree to reflect his origins.


Thus we find the Grandparents who baptize her as their child in England

Name: Letitia Symonds
Gender: Female
Baptism Date: 30 Nov 1711
Baptism Place: Stockbridge, Hampshire, England
Father: Thomas Symonds
Mother: Elizabeth
FHL Film Number: 1041367


Then we find the British Royal Service record and pension paid to his daughter:

The FATHER and MOTHER are actually the Grandmother and Grandfather who's son was also Thomas Symonds. Thus the latter Simons connection

though cousins is found to be an extended likely place to find a spouse and return to America which is what happened.

Her child Elizabeth born in 1752 marries Simons cousins of the same line but not close enough to prevent marriage, and the C1f is passed on to furture

generations. Although white in appearance after 5 generations, the roots remain in the DNA Family Tree.


So we can conclude that through Son's of Mohawk in my Mt DNA lines into J1b is found roots of C1f in my mother and

by the Vail line in my father with the same C1f DNA haplogroup from Seneca Mohawk of the six nations Native American.

So my Royal line has been here in America for 381 years in 2017 yet my Family ancestors have been here since about 1500 BC to 1300 BC.

According to some DNA Scientists, the American Native tribes have been here for over 4000 years but records show a recorded history

of about 3500 years since the Jewish people came on sailing ships from Egypt to obtain the plants used in the mummification process.
