Our direct male link to our Pennsylvania Donnel ancestor tested I2b1a - that's the Scots YDNA, or as it was earlier referred to - Isles-Scot-M284+. So no matter what we don't know about our ancestor John Donnel in PA by 1772, we do know he was Scots. Family tradition is he or his parents were from County Antrim, Northern Ireland. That's consistent with the migration of the Scotch Irish to Pennsylvania during the mid 1600s through the 1700s. Although many of the early Scotch Irish found in Northumberland Co., seemed to come from County Donegal.
