yDNA for north Georgia Kaylors / Caylors

Has anyone else done male-lineage genetic testing - that is, yDNA - for branches of the north Georgia K/Caylor family?

I'm aware of three distinct sets of people using variants of the Kaylor surname and living in north Georgia between 1840 and 1870. So far as I know, only one descendant of any of these lineages has done the tests. That male comes from the Caylors out of Blount Co.,TN.

This one set of results so far fails to match other Caylor/Kaylor families from Virginia or Pennsylvania or from Rowan County, NC. But Kaylors from the other two lineages in Georgia - both of which have NC ancestors - might wind up matching results from other known Kaylor lines.

If you know your own data, you can compare results with the Blount Co. TN individual by checking www.ysearch.org and selecting the tab for "search for genetic matches." At the box for "Enter User ID:", use JKW7E to see the result.
