However, if my results are checked by each chromosomes, I have a % in each one of the above categories.

mt-Haplogroups A & D are in the Arctic, Southeastern U.S. & South American (Native American markers). The most frequent in the U.S. are A, B, C, & D with a smaller number X. The first 4 are found on each side of the Bering Strait. Not so with X.

According to this article

25% of the Iroquois are Haplogroup X(your husband's ancestry - I found your Ancestry database where your husband's and my family are listed).

Page 10 of this article

gives some breakdown of results with various tribes who were tested (appearing they have intermarried to the point that they have all of the most common Native haplogroups).
