|This TiP report is FamilyTreeDNA's time to the most recent common ancestor predictor tool. Solomon Hartley, my father's 3rd great grandfather, is our earliest known Hartley ancestor.|
And the last name is...Hogan, generally thought of as an Irish surname?
The tester didn't leave any other details as to ancestry or earliest known male ancestor, so I don't know if this represents a Hogan line or if the man was adopted? So far this doesn't answer any questions as to my dad's Y-DNA.
What I do know is that my father was born a Hartley, his earliest known Hartley was Solmon Hartley (1775-1815), and that his haplogroup is R-M269. I'm starting to suspect that Solomon Hartley's last name may have originally been something else.
