  • Notes 
    • !NOTE: 15 Dec 2002: The BARTON DNA Project (www.bartonsite.org) has established that Rufus Barton b. 1606 and Roger Barton (The Immigrant) b. 1628, alleged to be sons of Edward Barton b. 1559, may not be brothers since their descendants (according to current pedigrees) have different Y-Chormosome DNA. [Nov 2013 update: Rufus, Roger and Edward are three distinct yDNA profiles. If the three paper trails really do come together, there are at least two non-paternity-events (NPE).] This DNA result conflicts with many published genealogies which have been accepted as "fact" for decades. Here are some possible casuals: (1) either or both Roger and Rufus were Foster or Adopted sons of Edward, (2) either or both Roger and Rufus were not related in any way to Edward, (3) either Roger or Rufus was a non-paternity event (female infidelity) of Edward... but which one? (4) Both Roger and Rufus were sons of Edward but there was a non-paternity event downstream from one of them. Further research is needed to resolve this apparent conflict.
