Looking for others that are working on the Garrett Travis Brick Wall

Hi!

I'm a new member, so wanted to introduce myself. Just added a bunch of ancestors (Travis / Anderson on my Dad's side and Scragg / Dick on my Mom's). Started working on genealogy back in 2001, when my son was born. Got taken away from it by other life commitments, but am now getting back into it, primarily because DNA testing and data repositories have matured to the point where my main problem area has a potential for resolution. My 8th g grandfather, Garrett Travis (1633 - 1707) is a bit of a brick wall. He died in Rye New York, but his origins are not positively corroborated. He is said to have been called a Dutchman, but also is said to have been Scottish. No solid evidence. My FTDNA YDNA results point to the British Isles or Northwestern Europe, so trying to find matches via YDNA. Anyone else working on this wall? I have also sent a message to Jean Ball, the profile manager for this Garrett, but wanted to open this up to the wider community, since I can't find any discussions on this topic and would like to find more YDNA candidates.

Thanks!

Larry

Thanks for the response, Wayne... Took a look at what I could of Jean's information on Garrett. Appears to be essentially what I have on him. Will continue looking for any potential YDNA candidates to flesh out where he may originate from...
