It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Philip by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA. However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with Philip:

Beyer-1 and Baer-1156 appear to represent the same person because: I believe this to be the same person although the spelling of the last name is different, enough other info matches.
posted on Baer-1156 (merged) by Kevin Lausch
Johann Philip Beyer died in one of the pre-French & Indian

War skirmishes. In 1750, British and French representatives met in Paris to try to solve these territorial disputes, but no progress was made. In 1752, the Marquis Duquesne was made governor-general of New France with specific instructions to take possession of the Ohio Valley, removing all British presence from the area.. The following year, 1753, he sent troops to western Pennsylvania where they built forts at Presque Island (Erie) and on the Rivière aux Boeufs (Waterford).
