Levingston/Livingston(e) DNA results

FYI, we've verified that Andrew, George & John Levingston/Livingston(e) that migrated from PA/VA into central OHio pre-1810 are close FamilyTree YDNA matches! The best & most puzzling information was that they ALL matched the LIEBENSTEIN/LOWENSTEIN markers! Those families came to America in early 1700's from Baden, Germany. This is with the first 37 markers. We've since verified that a descendant of David L* of Somerset, PA (Rev. War Patriot) is also matching very closely.
Finally a major break through after 40+ years of personal research! Many years longer for others, some are gone & don't realize that our theory that there was a strong GERMAN connection in this family was indeed true. We're still looking for other possible L* males who think they might be connected to early German heritage that came across America.
