I'm going to put in the line I'm researching for whatever reason you can use it for. The DNA project is interesting if you can conjure up people and get them interested in volunteering.
This is not my family but my brother-in-laws wife's family that I'm researching and it is the second person that I have done research for with New Haven John as an ancestor. I've been on the Brockett Archive site and they sure throw it all out there for you! I'm right now, going with the Caswell John as father until I hear more. From what I've read here and there, John of New Haven was a bit rebellious to the Puritan ways infringing on his freedom. If that is the truth as in the records, then maybe that's the reason he wasn't treated as a "Gentleman." Good thing they weren't in Salem during the "Witch Hunt!" Anyway, it looks like they used his talents and expertise even if they had them sitting in the back of the Church.
