DNA from descendants of both John Meek born about 1820 and his assumed brother William Meek reveals that the descendants are not related. There are possible explanations for this conflict which would not necessarily impact the validity of the earlier genealogical information. Therefore additional DNA tests are required to explain the conflict and to determine how the DNA information impacts the genealogical information. DNA from the descendant of John Meek may or may not represent the descendants of James Meek.

The descendant of William Meek matches a descendant of the family who lived Johnson Co., KY and Group C in General. Any conclusions regarding relationships that are based on DNA results are also dependent on the validity of the genealogical information. In most cases multiple DNA tests from different branches of the same family are required.
