1725 - 1783

John Carruthers resided in Pennsylvania, and was of Scots-Irish descent. The participant claims to be a cousin of QT89Y.

Carruthers Variant With Norse I1 Haplotype

This haplotype's highest match frequencies in YHRD fall in Sweden, Romania, Denmark, Finland, Puglia, Italy (probably Norman) and the Netherlands. The closest match in the FTDNA Haplogroup database falls in Norway, with additional close matches in Norway, Iceland, Russia and Britain. This is most likely of Norse Viking origin.

This participant exhibits a variant of the prevailing Carruthers DNA signature, matching M2MT6, NYVWA and HJRRK on 11 out of 12 markers.

This is a new participant in the Border Reivers project, and genealogical info is not yet available.

Carruthers Variant With Norse I1 Haplotype

This haplotype's highest match frequencies in YHRD fall in Sweden, Romania, Denmark, Finland, Puglia, Italy (probably Norman) and the Netherlands. Exact and 1 step matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall in Northern Ireland, England, Norway, Iceland, Germany and Scotland. Many 2 step matches in Iceland, the Faroes, the Shetlands, Norway, Sweden and the Isle of Man - as well as the British Isles. This is most likely of Norse Viking origin.

This participant matches BFVRF and C3VZQ on 12 out of 12 markers, NPDJX on 11 out of 12 markers, and M2MT6 and HJRRK on 10 out of 12 markers.

Carruthers Variant With Norse I1 Haplotype

This haplotype's highest match frequencies in YHRD fall in Sweden, Romania, Denmark, Finland, Puglia, Italy (probably Norman) and the Netherlands. This is most likely of Norse Viking origin.

This participant matches HJRRK on 35 out of 37 markers, 4QGSN on 33 out of 37 markers, M2MT6 on 30 out of 37 markers, NPDJX on 21 out of 25 markers, and C3VZQ on 12 out of 12 markers. These participants are all probably related, however distantly.

JVUYJ Carruthers Scotland

William Carruthers,

born 20th century

The only information we have so far on this participant is that he claims Scottish roots.

Carruthers With A Northern Germanic I1 Haplotype

This haplotype's only exact match in YHRD falls in Germany, and the top matches in the FTDNA haplogroup database fall in England, Germany and Norway. It is clearly northern Germanic in origin, possibly Norse.

Out of 37 markers, JVUYJ is 2 steps distant from PEYA8, 3 steps distant from K67WR, 4QGSN and M2MT6, and similarly close to several others in this data set. It is clearly related to the genetic mainstream of the clan.

TJXAF Carothers Dumfries,

Dumfriesshire,

Scotland

John Carothers,

1725 - 1783

John was one of five brothers and two sisters, all but one of whom emigrated to America about 1740. John himself emigrated by way of Northern Ireland in 1745. He was born in Dumfries, but died in Cumberland Cty., Pennsylvania, where he is buried near Silver Springs Presbyterian Church. He was a veteran of Pontiac's Rebellion, and was a Mason. His father is thought to have been Robert Carothers. After he died, his wife, the former Sarah Neely, moved to Mecklenburg Cty., North Carolina, along with three of their sons. John's twin brother Hugh had already settled in that area.

Carruthers Variant With Norse I1 Haplotype

This haplotype differs from a common "Ultra-Norse" type of I1 through a DYS390 value of 24 rather than 23, which is probably just a local variation. The closest match for this haplotype in the FTDNA Haplogroup database falls in Norway, and additional close matches fall in Russia, Norway, Sweden and throughout the British Isles. This haplotype's highest match frequencies in YHRD fall in Northern Italy and Poland.

This participant matches his first cousin RGUND on all 37 markers, and HJRRK on 32 out of 37 markers. He most likely belongs to the main I1 lineage of the Carothers, Crothers and Cruthirds families.

TJPE9 Carruthers Brtish Isles

&

Minnesota,

United States

Richard Carruthers,

born 20th century

This individual claims to be adopted, so these DNA results may have nothing to do with the Carruthers clan at all. Coincidentally, they belong to the I1 haplogroup, like those of most genetic Carruthers/Carothers clan members.

Adopted Carruthers With I1 Haplotype

The closest matches at 25 markers in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall primarily in Scandinavia, with a few matches in the United Kingdom. There is only one partial match in the YHRD database, and that falls in Russia. This haplotype is almost certainly of Scandinavian origin.

This participant has no close matches in this data set.

James Carruthers,

1650 - 1730

This branch of the Carruthers family emigrated to America from Ainstable, England in 1832.

Possible Anglo-Saxon I2a Haplotype

This haplotype has been SNP-tested as I2a. Its matches in YHRD fall exclusively in Germany and Austria. Closest matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall in England, Scotland, Germany and Denmark. This haplotype is most likely of Anglian, Frisian, Danish or Saxon origin.

There are no close matches so far with other Carruthers participants.

No additional genealogical information is available from this participant at this time.

Highly Unusual R1b Haplotype

With its DYS19 value of 15 and DYS390 value of 22, this haplotype is highly unusual for an R1b. Closest matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall in England, Scotland and Russia, with numerous near matches throughout Western Europe. YHRD matches are similar to those for 4MWXS.

4MWXS and 32KRD are 2 steps distant on 37 markers and are almost certainly related.

4MWXS Carruthers Scotland

Robert R. Carruthers,

born 20th century

This is not an official participant of the Border Reivers project, so additional genealogical info may not be readily available.

Highly Unusual R1b Haplotype

With its DYS19 value of 15 and DYS390 value of 22, this haplotype.is highly unusual for an R1b. Closest matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall in England, Scotland, the Shetland Isles and Greenland. The only European matches in YHRD fall in Saxony and Northern Portugal, which could indicate a Northern Germanic origin. (Remember - the Suevi, who controlled parts of Portugal from 5th to 7th centuries, were a tribe from Northeast Germany.) The FTDNA matches also suggest a possible Northern Germanic or Scandinavian origin.

4MWXS and 32KRD are 2 steps distant on 37 markers and are almost certainly related.

DE8R8 Carruthers Georgia,

United States

Joseph Spencer Carruthers,

1855- 1933

Joseph Carruthers was born in Georgia, but migrated to Texas. Not much is known about his ancestry. To quote the participant, "He is a bit of a mystery and he may not even have been a Carruthers." In fact, his lineage does not belong to the Carruthers genetic mainstream at all.

North Sea Celtic R1b Haplotype

This haplotype has the earmarks of the so-called "North Sea Celtic" R1b sub-population. The only close match in the FTDNA haplogroup database falls in Ireland (possibly confirming Scots-Irish roots), and the highest match frequencies in the YHRD database fall in Sweden, the Netherlands, Norway and Germany. It may have come to Britain with the Vikings - just as the Carruthers genetic mainstream most likely did - and then found its way to Ulster during the plantation period - and finally to the American South.

There are no close matches so far with other Carruthers participants.

5AFGN Carruth Renfrewshire,

Scotland

James Adam Carruth,

1679 - 1726

James Carruth was born in Scotland, but later migrated to County Antrim, Northern Ireland. Of his seven children, Walter, Adam, Alexander, Elizabeth (later McCormick) and Mary (later Huggins) emigrated to America in 1729 on board the "Dilligence of Glasgow". James and John remained behind in Ireland, but may have emigrated themselves at a later date.

1 Step Away From WAMH

This haplotype differs from the Atlantic Modal Haplotype only by a value of 10 for DYS391. The highest match frequencies in YHRD fall in the Netherlands, the Iberian peninsula and among undifferentiated European Americans. This haplotype could have come from anywhere in Western Europe, but was probably indigenous to Britain.

There are no close matches so far with other Carruthers participants.

HXARM Carruthers Durham,

England

Christopher Carruthers,

born ca. 1848

This branch of the Carruthers family was originally from Bishopwearmouth (now Hendon) in Sunderland, County Durham, England. This participant is a resident of Britain. His grandfather Arthur was christened in Bishopwearmouth in 1869, and his father was born in 1907.

Possible Southern European R1b Haplotype

This haplotype is a variant of the Atlantic Modal Haplotype, but it exhibits an unusually low value for DYS385b, which is statistically associated with R1b samples in Southern Europe. The highest match frequencies in YHRD fall in Italy, Albania and among Bulgarian Turks, as well as in Iberian samples. Closest matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall in Germany, France and the British Isles. This haplotype could be of Norman, Iberian or Roman origin.

There are no close matches so far with other Carruthers participants.

CF54H Carruthers Scotland

Joseph Carruthers,

born 20th century

This participant claims Scottish ancestry, but has provided no additional genealogical information. He is currently a resident of the state of California.

WAMH Carruthers

This haplotype is a classic WAMH (Western Atlantic Modal Haplotype), and as such is common throughout Western Europe. The participant's ancestors may have been indigenous to the British Isles, or they may have come to Britain from almost anywhere else in Western Europe.

There are no close matches so far with other Carruthers participants.

DPY2N Caruthers

West Virginia,

United States

Bruce Caruthers,

born 20th century

Mr. Caruthers can trace his patrilineal ancestors as far back as 1780.

Carruthers With Iberian R1b Haplotype

This haplotype differs from the Western Atlantic Modal Haplotype (WAMH) only in its high DYS385b value of 16. The highest match frequencies in YHRD fall in the Netherlands, Ireland and various Iberian samples. That is typical for an R1b haplotype of indigenous British origin, but an Anglo-Saxon origin is also a possibility. The closest matches in the FTDNA database fall in Germany and Italy, with additional close matches in France, Germany, Iceland, and in all parts of Iberia and the British Isles.

There are no close matches so far with other Carruthers participants.

QT89Y Carruthers

Scotland

John Carruthers,

1725 - 1783

John's ancestors emigrated from Scotland to Virginia in 1660. They moved to Pennsylvania in 1700, North Carolina in 1760 and 1774, and finally Tennessee in 1790. The participant himself is from the Midwest and bears the surname Carothers.

Carruthers With Unusual R1b Haplotype

This haplotype is extremely unusual, exhibiting both DYS392 and DYS393 values of 14, rather than the modal 13. The closest matches in YHRD are almost exclusively among Baltic and Scandinavian "N" haplotypes, although this haplotype has been SNP-tested as an R1b. Among the closest appropriate R1b matches in YHRD, the highest frequencies occur in the Netherlands, Switzerland, Saxony, Poland and Northern Italy. The closest matches in the FTDNA Haplogroup database fall in England, Ireland and Germany. The DYS390 value of 23, in addition to the geographical match pattern in both databases, suggests an Anglo-Saxon origin.

There are no close matches so far with other Carruthers participants.
