One of two early, large New England families of our surname study from the early days of settling North America. This family is distinguished with many early luminaries such as a first governor of Massachusetts, first president of Harvard college, Senators, United States Attorney General, and such. Charles actually died in Gloucester and it is his widow Joanna who traveled to the Massachusetts Bay Colony with her younger children. Joanna herself remarried an Edmund Quincy. This family line ended up generating the first lady of our second president John Adams, who was also the mother of our sixth president John Quincy Adams. See an external Wikipedia Chart on the Quncy Political Family. Joanna’s Quincy children and her Hoare children are half-siblings.

The project was started with a single tester in this line; a fourth cousin of Timothy Peterman. Although the other early New England line quickly grew with testers first, this line and its strong research over the years has pulled even in terms of scope and breadth of testers and work. There is a DNA study page for this family group.

* Family member DNA tested; placed in group (YDNA-STR and/or Autosomal SNP aka FamilyFinder)
** DNA test results pending; believed group based on genealogical work only
1: Tim Peterman has only yDNA tested one male descendant from his great-grandmother’s line but well over 10 cousins tested in the FamilyFinder (atDNA) that are all in his tight family grouping.
2: DNA test results indicated we needed to move these descendants of James Horr from the Hezekiah Hoar (B01) line to here. See the page B01-S01 James Horr explaining this.
