This is a listing of the Cathcart males at the end of each "brick wall."
Although some folks (including me) put ancestors behind each of these "founding
fathers," the evidence is often pretty slim, unproven and/or disputed.
Use these men as possible anchor points to correlate yDNA genetic test
results with known genealogical research.

Under construction... as
a yDNA participant, please let me know if you'd like this done any
2/67 = -2 genetic distance on 67-marker test
NA = Not Applicable... same group
a blank square means I haven't input the data yet
The numbers/names on each row and column
correspond with the individuals/patriarchs on groups page
Where there are two or more participants within
the same group, and they have different genetic matches/differences when
compared against another other group, the closest match will be
Gw & HR Cathcart, see
Group 2 page for more details/suppositions
My own test is 3/67 from the two participants above.
However, two other participants: RS & JA are
0/67 or exact matches to each other -- (see group 1c) also fall into my
genealogical group. They are known to be fifth cousins to
myself and descend from John Cathcart (father of the "Big 4"
However, both of these gentlemen are more distant
genetically (6/67) from the two
gentlemen in footnote 2 above.
These results are puzzling, as they seem to
contradict the genetic results.
The townlands of Kells and
Lisnawhiggle are about a half mile apart.
Our only participant in this group
hails from Southeast Australia. Descendants of this John Cathcart of Kells also immigrated to Delaware/New York and Canada.
0/67 Exact match with genetic
group 1a, which includes five members.
next closest match is to my own group (from Big 4)
and a descendant of James Monro Cathcart (12).
John Cathcart from Kells connection
to both William and Mary and Samuel "Spartanburg" Cathcart line
We have testing that shows an exact match at the
111-marker level between two participants who hail from the William and
Mary and Spartanburg lines. This result was unexpected.
Participant Ba Cathcart (111 marker test) shows a
one step (-1/111) distance from these two lines.
One participant from this group. Matches most
closely with two individuals—one of whom has not yet joined our group.
I'm not aware of the ancestry of any of the closest matches to this group
Please get in touch with me so I can add your name
into a specific group chart
I will be asking for approval since I'll be
adding your male ancestors to a public site
