Stone DNA Testing Tentative Match

As I posted about back on December 17th (, a descendant of Jacob Stone ( submitted a DNA sample for testing. The results of the first panel of twelve markers came back today, and the markers match exactly with the first panel of twelve markers of the DNA test I took. While a twelve marker match by itself is not very definitive, this is the first match I have had to my test even at just the basic twelve marker level. When the uniqueness of the match is taken into consideration with the three pieces of evidence I outlined in my December 17th post, I believe it is extremely likely the results of the comparison with the remaining twenty-five markers will support the conclusion that the Jacob Stone who moved to Iowa in 1854 is indeed almost certainly the son of my fourth great grandparents, Henry Stone ( and Margaret Murphy (, of Monongalia County, Virginia (now West Virginia). Results of the remaining markers are due back in the middle of March.
