Your line can not go from Aaron Henry who married Rebecca Burrell back to the ancestors you have claimed. They are two different YDNA haplogroups.

Both the YDNA Samples above show YDNA haplogroup I1.

Aaron was the son of Moses and not the son of George and he did not go on to the Henry line that you have given. That Henry line is R1b. There is a zero percent chance that these men from two different Y haplogroups had a common ancestor within 600 years (or even within a few thousand):

Haplogroup R1b Participant Lineages
Group 6 The Patrick Henry Connection

Thank you so much for your kind attention. A DNA test on the line represented by my husband has been performed, and the study is continuing. [You will note that post was from almost 2 years ago, and was pointed out at that time.] This report was taken from an old genealogical study prior to the advent of DNA study, and of course, until then was considered correct.

I appreciate your kind attention! It is individuals such as you who assist us in correcting those old studies and help connect the dots accurately!

Best regards,

Cyndi Beane Henry
