Tilley DNA testing results and Foster Tilley

A couple of years ago I completed a FTDNA test for my Y line. I have the results and closely matched a Tilley, but have been unable to get in touch with the person who submitted that sample. I was wondering if anyone else on this forum has results from a Y line that may not be posted.
I trace my Y line back to Foster Tilley (Stoke County NC). There seems to be a question of his parentage for various reasons. If this other Tilley is from a different line of Tilleys or a different son of Lazarus it could answer several questions.
I have been in contact with a person who submitted a Tilley ssample and there was no match. Those Tilleys were from Georgia so I am going to do some research.
I would encourage all male Tilleys ( especially those from or with a male line from Stokes County NC) to get a simple DNA test done.
