Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Your Mother's Mother's Patrilineal Line

Calling all Genea-Musings Fans: 

 It's Saturday Night again - 
time for some more Genealogy Fun!!

Here is your assignment if you choose to play along (cue the Mission Impossible music, please!):

The challenge:  Find a living male person in your database from your maternal grandmother's patrilineal line who could take a Y-chromosome DNA test. Answer these questions:

1) What was your mother's mother's name?

2) What is your mother's mother's patrilineal line? That is, her father's father's father's ... back to the most distant male ancestor in that line?

3) Can you identify male sibling(s) of your mother's mother, and any living male descendants from those male sibling(s)? If so, you have a candidate to do a Y-DNA test on that patrilineal line. If not, you may have to find male siblings, and their descendants, of the next generation back, or even further.

4)  Tell us about it in your own blog post, or in a comment on this post, or in a Facebook or Google Plus post.

Here is mine (as an example):

1)  My mother's mother's name was Emily Kemp Auble (1899-1977), daughter of Charles Auble (1849-1916) and Georgianna Kemp (1868-1952).

2)  Emily Auble's patrilineal line is:

*  Charles Auble (1849-1916) married Georgianna Kemp (1868-1952)
*  David Auble (1817-1894) married Sarah Knapp (1818-after 1900).
*  John Auble (1780-????) married Anna Row (1780-1860)
*  Johannes Able (1758-1818) married Sophia Trimmer (1747-1811)
*  Michael Able (1719-1791) married Christina (1730-1804)
*  Andreas Able (1690-1751) married Maria (????-1771)

3)  Charles Auble (1849-1916) had one brother, William A. Auble (1845-1901) who had one daughter, so that doesn't work out.

David Auble (1817-1894) had three brothers, William (1820-1844, no children); Hampton Auble (1827-1901) had one son, who died unmarried; Robert Auble (1830-1920) had three sons, but only one had a son that I know of.  He may be a possibility - I need to do more research to add several more generations.

There are several male Auble/Able lines from the earlier generations, but I don't have anything past the grandchildren (which are in the mid-19th century).  I need to do mroe research to add several more generations.

This is another case where my "only child" syndrome really hampers my research - my mother was an only child, and both of her parents were also.

Here's my effort, Randy:
I have no idea why the text I copy from you always does this weird formatting thing in BlogSpot. Do you?

Mine doesn't take long, Randy...

1) My mother's mother's name was Dorothy Christine Sorensen (1887-1982), daughter of Lauritz Sorensen (1847-1922 ) and Jensene Nielsen (1852-1906)

2) Dorothy Sorensen was born in Denmark… her name is somewhat Americanized.
This is my very shortest of all my ancestral lines… Her patrilineal line is:
Lauritz Christian Sorensen (1847-1922 ) married Jensene Marie Nielsen (1852-1906)
Anders Christian Sorensen (1807-1886) married Dorthea Krag (1808-??)

3) Laurtiz only had one sister that I know of, no brothers…

Thank you for bringing up the subject, Randy!
I keep hearing from my paternal lines, but maternal? Hmmmmmm.
