The purpose of this entire Benjamin / Larkin / John / William DeWitt clan listing is to provide the
details of their clan because one of their ancestors Bernie DeWitt has
Y chromosome DNA that matches mine at 109 of 111 markers . 
At the 110 and 111th, there is only a difference of 1. 

These results suggest that Bernie and I share a common ancestor within 300 years.
These results were reported in April 2011.  Hopefully further investigations will lead us
to the identity of our mystery common ancestor.

Others claim this woman is

However after viewing another

I think his wife is #32.

And perhaps, this woman is William Isaiah's (29)
wife Vela T Wagnon?
