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 Edward:

Barry there's no need to use the I word. While one may think it, it's best to keep it to oneself.
As suggested by the author of this page, the "alternate place of birth as Rowley, Massachusetts" for Hannah's birth is a piece of idiocy as there were no white people living in what later became Rowley in 1631 (to say nothing of the fact that the Grant family didn't arrive in Massachusetts until years later).
