Results of a recent Y-DNA test done on a patrilineal descendant  of Jesse Strang has confirmed a previous test results and proved that Jesse Strang is not a patrilineal descendant of the Strang family of Westchester County, New York.  Although we may never know, the Y-DNA results indicates that a member of the Tompkins family of Westchester County, New York is likely Jesse’s father.  I also strongly believe that Jesse’s mother was Mary Strang, daughter of Daniel Strang and Elizabeth Galpin and brother of Daniel Strang the recruiter, who later married Jacob Silliker.

More details on the Y-DNA test results, our analysis and conclusions can be found at Jesse Strang DNA.
