To my knowledge no one has been able to find a paper trail from Isaiah VICK (b. 30 Nov 1785) and Stephen VICK (b. 11 Nov 1876) of Dobbs Co. to the immigrant Joseph VICK, b. abt 1640 in England and d. bef 1704 in Isle of Wight Co., VA. Many believe Stephen and Isaiah were the sons of Jacob and Mary (based upon an inscription on Stephen's monument), and that Jacob's line was Isaac3, William2, Joseph1.

For those who are interested, several male VICKs in the U.S. have submitted Y-DNA samples to see if we can use our Y-DNA to verify our lines to Joseph. Some of those male VICKs have a good paper trail to Joseph through his son Richard. A gentleman from Dorset, England also submitted a Y-DNA sample. The results show the descendants of Joseph do not share a recent (last 1,000 years) common ancestor with the gentleman from Dorset. We are still looking for other people from the Gloucestershire area who would be willing to be tested. We may have a different result with other VICKs there We are also looking for someone to test from the Isle of Man. We may have found one. Over the long run, we hope to be able to use Y-DNA to extend the VICK line beyond Joseph and to determine where Jospeh came to VA from.

Regards,

Larry
