Eddie A. Gay (a known descendant of Barnabas Chesley Gay) was tested for Y chromosome to the 25th marker, and results are an exact match to my distant cousin, who I asked to get tested a few months back.Before the test we had no idea we would match up with your Barnabas, his name is no where in our family known records, we hit the wall in 1776 in Henrico, VA.
Eddie Gay's results shows an email of : Aud2777 at aol.com at familytreedna.com
Eddie's results were posted through www. familytreedna.com and came back as an exact match to my cousin, who is NOT a descendant of Barnabas Chesley Gay.
As there is no known connection between our branch and yours, but the results show there IS a direct connection at a generation proceeding your Barnabas and our Charles , this means we may be able to work together to break through our brick walls and connect our families to a common paternal line by researching a way to connect Charles and Barnabas.
