Hartshorn-Way Family History

Robert Glen Way's
Adam & Eve Genealogy
 

Tracing our roots back to our first parents

According to Judean-Christian traditions, our first parents were Adam and Eve, the first humans. All peoples on this earth trace their roots to these common ancestors. We are all distant cousins. Medicine also tells us that we are all related. Look at the blood type alleles. There is no connection between race and blood types. The percentage of blood type is similar in all races of people. Indeed we are of the human race. Furthermore, genetic studies in mitochondrial DNA hint that all people have a common female ancestor. Call this common ancestor "Eve".

If we keep tracing our lineage back, in theory we will come to our common ancestor. At this time, this is more an exercise in fun than in genealogical work, at least not yet. There are still many more ancestors to be uncovered. Royal genealogies often trace back to a common ancestor that proved a claim on the crown. Many medieval royal families have a lineage that traces back to royal families of the Bible. Tracing your ancestors back to a royal family can provide you a pedigree that traces back to the first parents.

Bobbie has ties with the British royal family. He is a descendent of Edward III through his grandson Henry de Beaufort and Lady Fitz Alan. The royal families of England and Scotland trace their lines way back, all the way back to our first parents. The tradition is that Tephi, the daughter of Zedekiah, last King of Judah, made her way to northern Ireland. Her son became a King of Ireland. From there, the line passed through the ruling families of the Picts and the Scots. The royal family of Scotland traces their lineage through Judah. And from Judah we have the scriptural lineage to Adam & Eve.

Comments

1Tamar Tephi was also known as Tea Tephi, the daughter of God’s House, Princess of the House of David. She came to Ireland in 580 BC and brought with her a relic of immemorial antiquity, said to be Jacob’s Pillow of Stone. This became the Coronation Stone used by the Kings of Ireland and Scotland and later the Kings of England.

2Eochaidh is supposed to be a prince of the scarlet-thread bloodline. He is a descendant of Zarah, the twin son of Tamar who had the scarlet thread tied upon his hand at birth. The marriage of Tea Tephi and Eochaidh united the two bloodlines from Judah.

3Josiah Ben Amon and Hamutal Bint Jeremiah had two sons, Jehoahaz and Zedekiah.
