Laymon/Layman/Lemon DNA Project 

Layman Family Lines - Groups 2 & 3

The original three Laymans in this study are descended from men who lived in southwestern Germany, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and Tennessee between 1700 and 1800.  At this point, we are considering them as two separate groups, though they may have a common origin.  Both of these groups are of the Western European Celtic Haplotype.

Group 2

Jerry Layman is from a different family line that immigrated from Hunspach in Alsace around 1730.  There are currently 27 members who fit in or near this group.  This family settled and stayed in Frederick Co., MD.  Jerry is now joined by Kenneth Lemmon who has traced his ancestors back to Maryland and then on to the British Isles.  Jerry, Kenneth, George H. Lemmon, Iain Lamont, Charles William Layman, Richard John Lemen, and James Eldridge Lemon match perfectly and they are 2 repeats away from Earl Layman's line.  On average, Jerry and Ken would have had a common ancestor with Earl and the others about 700 to 800 years ago.  In our most recent additions Thomas Earl Lehman who lived near Hunspach in Alsace, France tested only 1 repeat away from Jerry Layman who has traced his family back to Hunspach!  This is the first time we have been able to connect a family in the 'New World' with one in the 'Old World'.  

Terry Lemons also fits in with this sub-group, also testing 1 repeat away from Jerry and Kenneth.  He traces his family back to John Lemon of northern Rockingham Co., NC about 1750.  John Lemonds and Frank D. Lemons, who's ancestor, William Lemonds, lived on Trouublesome Creek at the southern end of Rockingham Co., NC at the same time.  This test result shows that they were probably related, but were probably not brothers or first cousins, as they differ from Terry on 2 repeats.

William L. Lemmon and Jack M. Lemmon are descended from Robert Lemmon (born in Tyrone Co., Ireland) and Eleanor Davis from Maryland.

Joe B. Layman is descended from a Layman family in Butler Co., OH in 1820's.  Dale LeMond who is descended from a LeMond family in Cumberland Co., PA and  Hamilton and Butler Co., OH.  Dale and Joe have similar DNA (2 repeats away) and may be from the same family.  Rick White who is a descendent of the Lamont Clan in Scotland are also 2 repeats away from Jerry, Ken, George, and James E.

Wayne Lemon is descended from William Lemon and Martha Miller.  David E. Lemon who is descended from Robert Lemon and Mary McKown is a perfect match for Wayne indicating a very close relationship.  Fred H. Lamon also matches this sub-group.  He is descended from George Lamon Sr who was most likely the son of James Lemon who was born in County Tryone, Ireland about 1710.  


Group 3

Earl and David Layman are from one family, and are certain that they have a common ancestor, Jacob Layman (b PA, 1758, d TN, 1841).  Earl Layman has traced his line back to Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania in the early 1700s, when the major immigration from the Palatines (Alsace region of Germany/France) occurred and to Switzerland before that.   This family moved on to Virginia and then to Tennessee after the Revolutionary War.  Earl Laymon has done extensive research on his family and has written a book "From the Emmental to Eldee: A History of the Layman Family" which he published in 2001.  It is very interesting reading, and is recommended for all Layman family researchers.  You can contact Earl at

We currently have 23 participants in this group.  They range in spelling from LaMance to Lemmon to Layman to Laymon.  Jack LaMance is from a Morgan Co., TN family who came from South Carolina, and possibly originally from Maryland.  Doug La Mance is also probably descended from this same family.  Leonard Lemmon and Haskell Lemon are descendents of John Lemon who moved from York Co., PA (probably) to Rockingham Co., VA to Washington Co., TN to Greene Co., KY where he died before 1820.  This John is known to many researchers as Lemon's Bend John, after the bend in the Greene River in KY where he lived.  Charles R. Layman is descended from a John Layman who settled in Carroll Co., TN.  Robert Fleming and Gene Lemmon are descended from Peter Lemmon who lived in Orange Co., NC and later Sumner Co., TN and before that from Henry Leman, who settled in Orange Co., NC and who was apparently a son of Peter Leman who immigrated from Germany in early 1700s.  Mike Layman is descended from Christopher Layman and David Layman who live in Jefferson Co., TN in the early 1800s.  Millard Lemon and Paul D. Lemon are 5th cousins once removed and are descended from Isaac Lemon and Vina Richardson who lived in Franklin Co., VA in the 1790s.  Claude Laymon is a descendent of John Layman who married Nancy Gann and lived in Washington Co., TN in 1790s prior to moving to Hamilton Co., TN.  They are all believed to be descendents the Peter Leman who settled in Lancaster Co., PA around 1718 or his relatives.  Meryl Lemen recently tested and was an exact match for this group but interestingly he traces back his ancestry to Nicholas and Robert Lemen from Northern Ireland and the British Isles in the 1600s.  There is no evidence to his line being descended from the above mentioned Peter Leman.
