My Matrilineal Line's Unique Haplogroup T1a4 Twig on the mtDNA Haplotree
Diana Gale MATTHIESEN's Matrilineal Ancestry
My Matrilineal Line
The lineage from Mary NEWGATE to Abigail MARBLE is accepted based on the research of others as
these are well-studied New England families:

Mary NEWGATE (c1615-1692) b. Tynswood, Southwick, NBL  immigrant to Massachusetts by 1644
__Elizabeth TOWNSEND (c1645-1705) b. Lynn, MA
____Abigail MERRIAM (1684-1768) b. Concord, MA
______Abigail MARBLE (1716-1791) b. Stow, MA

Lineage is solid from here down, meaning I either did the research, myself, or confirmed it, myself:
________Abigail HALE (1752-18411) b. Stow, MA
__________Abigail CHENEY (1781-1866) b. Dublin, NH
____________Philancia M. HOLT (1811-1864) b. Sempronius, NY

Lineage is solid from here down based on paper documentation and first-hand knowledge of Nina WILLIS:
_____________Martha Abigail HOPKINS (1834-1924) b. Somerset, NY
_______________Ida BROWN (1856-1943) b. Hastings, MI

Lineage is solid from here down based on paper documentation, my first-hand knowledge, and the fact
that I and another granddaughter of Nina WILLIS (and her daughter), through a different daughter, 
are an mtDNA match:
_________________Nina WILLIS (1879-1956) b. Chillicothe, MO
___________________Nina Gale STRAUB (1907-1991) b. Turlock, CA
_____________________Diana Gale MATTHIESEN (1942-    ) b. San Jose, CA
___________________Ellis Josephine STRAUB (1913-1978) b. San Jose, CA
_____________________Ms. SAVINI b. San Francisco, CA
_______________________Ms. ALESSI b. Tucson, AZ

As of July 2013, FTDNA has me listed as T1a4, and I have just two HVR1+HVR2 matches (a known first cousin and her daughter), who are also full sequence matches.  The unique value of 6224T may eventually define a named subclade of T provided enough people tested also possess this mutation; that is, if and when it ceases to be simply a "private" mutation (i.e., a recent one possessed by only a few individuals), but instead identifies a substantial group of people.
