Another cousin of ours was DNA tested with FamilytreeDNA and the results were in the end of August. Much to my surprise and shock we had a match noted by FamilytreeDNA. We descend from the first son of Robert's William Duling ca. 1720. So you all know which line this is. We had a 37 marker match with a distance of 4 with a Michael Dooley ca. 1801 from Kilkenny, Ireland. What this means is a probability of a common ancestor at 16 generations back is 80.52% and 20 generations back 92.14%. Since we have been in the US for over 330 years this would equal 16 generations back. What I read this evening was it means being related to a family cluster or variant spelling of the surname. His father John Dooley ca. 1761 is buried in Kilkenny, Ireland. I would say we now know the heritage of Robert Dooling. I was very excited and still am!!
