Descendants of Edward Baber and Catherine Leigh

This page shows the known descendants that are possible ancestors to current day people named Baber.  The possible generations end at great-grandchildren with the exception of Edward who's remains were placed in the vault in 1711.

I am looking for family trees of any one that show a connection.  And possible verification that the shown Robert Baber is the true American Immigrant.  That connection is an educated guess made back in 1998.

The original belief that all BABER families are related is now the E-Group DNA and 4 non-related families in our R-Group.

The Last Change to this Page was August 12, 2023
Persons believed to be related have been Y-DNA tested.  See the connection to E-BY5515 DNA.

 No one in proven to be in this family line has been DNA tested.  If interested in testing please email us at:  DNA Test
We have two Baber Groups, one sopposedly related to the couple in the tomb at Chew Magna & the 1679 Virginia Immigrant, and the other not related.
