Cooley DNA Project growing
The Cooley DNA Project is sponsored by the Cooley Family Association of America. Here's a summary of what we've learned about the Y-DNA signatures of early Cooleys:
Representatives of these families have not yet tested:
John Cooley (1749-1813) m Abigail Lippincott
John Cooley (1731-1801) of Portsmouth, Ohio
James Cooley (1760-1840+) of Madison Co KY
And we need a second tester for the following families to confirm the results of the first testers in each:
James Cooley (c1732-) of Pittsylvania Co, VA
John Cooley (c1734-) of Franklin Co, NC
Samuel Cooley (c1615-) m Anne Prudden
Abraham Cowley (-1753) of Henrico Co, VA
Eligible testers are male Cooleys having documented descent.
I'm also interested in knowing what other early Cooley clans should be on my to-do list.
