Who is the "English Winston Churchill of Rochester NY?
There is the original 17th Century Winston Churchill of England who first documented the Devon (England) Churchills circa 17th Century. What is the descendancy of the Churchills of Fort Churchill Nevada?

I've seen this mentioned before but never explained.

We know that the Devon Churchills are the first Sir Winston's descendants. The DNA Project has tested them and their DNA signature matches the American Plymouth (Colony) Churchills which are known by written record to be Devon Churchills.

But there is another ancient Churchill Family the OXON Churchills. By testing we know that Devon Churchills are in Haplogroup I-1a which means they are of Nordic Origin which is consistant with the 1st Sir Winston's written ancestry.

However, OXON Churchills settled in the American South 17th & 18th Century. So southern Churchills tend to be of the OXON family. Modern examples are the American Virginia Churchills. OXON Churchills are in Haplogroup R-1b which is common in England but totally Un-related to Devon Sir Winston's Churchills of Haplogroup I-1a.

Question: Rochester NY Churchills would likely be I-1a say circa 18th Century. Do these Churchills have a written history? If they are later immagrants from Nevada then they may not be at all related to the Devon Churchills of the first Sir Winston. Just wondering.
