It may be possible to confirm family relationships with William by comparing test results with other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA.

Profiles William Martin (Martin-31911) and William Martin (Martin-24284) both claim the same parents and the same birth record. The rest of the biographies diverge. Neither profile presents convincing evidence. The gravestone shown on Martin-31911 states that the deceased was in his 87th year, which is consistent with a birth date of about 1732, not 1736.
