o Genetic distance 2 to participants 1,2,3,4
o Genetic distance 4 to participants 5,11
ό Dodgson spelling has been added for participation. Dodgson spelling seems in some instance to evolved to Dodson.

Group-1: Charles Dodson Family of North Farnham
Discussion: These participants show relationship under above table to this Charles Dodson. Genetic distances below are based on Participant 1 who continues to have the average allele reading on each tested marker for those participants showing relationship to Charles Dodson.
Project Needs: Other participants with good line to Charles Dodson to provide confirmation for this line.

Group 2 -Thompson P Ege Groupings
Discussion: These participants tie their lineage to Dodsons covered in the Thompson P. Ege book.
Project Needs: Confirmation DNA tests from Dodsons covered by the Ege book.
Charles/Calvert County/Prince Georges, MD Dodsons
Ege makes this grouping based on 3
early wills in Charles and
Ψ Participant 6: Kit # 7474
DNA testing shows that this line is unrelated to other participants except that Participant 13 is probably related with genetic distance of 4.

This family is Ege grouping
This John Dodson
Group 3 - Richard Dotson, Revolutionary War Indian Spy (Lucas Vol 2, pg 1126)
Discussion: See website of Betty Dotson Renick for information of Richard Dotson:
Project Needs: Participants that have good lines to Richard Dotson for testing to see if Richard may fit into other lines. Some brick walls may tie to him.
Group 4 Dobsons
Discussion: One Dobson participant. Showing no close connection to Dodson/Dobson lines.
Project Needs: Participants to DNA. The Dobson lines are expected to be distinct from other lines, but some Dodsons/Dotsons may be closer to the Dobson lines.
Group 5 Dodgsons
Discussion: No participants using the Dodgson spelling.
Project Needs: Participants to compare DNA. The Dodgson lines are expected to be distinct from other lines. However, some Dodsons/Dotsons may have evolved over time from the Dodgson spelling.
John Dodgson migrated from
Group 6 Unrelated Dodsons/Dotsons
Discussion DNA shows that these participants are not related to above participants or to each other.
Project Needs More participants with unknown lineage to better develop the different lines.
Ψ Participant 7 Kit # 18957 This line is not related to other Dodson lines.
Ψ Participant 8 Kit # 19090 This line is not related to other Dodson lines.
Ψ Participant 9 Kit # 20346 This line is not related to other Dodson lines.
Ψ Participant 10 Kit # 23508 This line is not related to other Dodson lines. Dodson heritage through line of Participant 12.
Discussion These are early Dodsons/Dotsons of northeastern KY.
Project needs- Participants from these lines for testing to see if these Dodsons/Dotsons are related.
Southern and Western Migration 1850 Census
Group 9 Dobson
One Dobson has participated but does not show close relationship to Dodsons/Dotsons.
