Hi Richard, This Q haplog question is very intriguing. Are the results sure about John's descendants having the Q haplog? Are the providers sure of their lines? If so, then I see only two possibilities (since we're talking Y DNA, the Native American can't come from "Goody"). The first is that the Q ha always been in the Brockett line from the Roman Legion (Centurian Brocetti even). Legion members could have had blood lines from anywhere. The second idea I got reading Farley Mowat's book, "West Viking". In an effort to explain the physical appearance of the Beothuk Indians (the original "red" indians), he relates that, "The chronicler Fabian, who saw a group of captive Beothuks at the English Court in 1498, whither they had been brought by John Cabot, noted that when they were dressed in European clothes they were indistinguishable from Englishmen". Now, I don't know what happened to these particular Indians, but just maybe, by adoption or some other circumstance (lust comes to mind), one of them got into the Brockett line. What do you think? Have you heard of the Beothuks at the English Court before? I hope you have more doners by now.
