Right, the male only...To be more specific: Newman Perkins b 1711 had 6 sons, John, Ebenezer, Uriah, David, Samuel & Oliver. Through reserach 3 of our Y DNA matches trace back to his sons Oliver and Ebenezer. So, that's what I've been thinking, since there's not any deviation at this level the others would also descend from one of their brothers. Unfortunatley we have brickwalls and a couple of NPE's.
Three of the testers have tested out to 111 markers and at that level the deviation increases to 2. I'm not sure what that changes, if anything. Maybe I should have started with that. This has been quite a learning curve and amazing that we have so many matches.
