DNA

I have done the Farr,Fair, Phair and Pharr DNA. I'm the only one that spells his name Pharr. I have 3 others with a match. They spell there name Farr. I live in Georgia. One match lives in Canada with his cousin who matches in Indiana. There is another Farr from Mississippi who also matches. The connection with the match from Canada may have been before them came to America. That looks like the logical answer. The one from Mississippi we don't think comes from The Edward Phair Farr line. So it may be from one of his brothers or could be another branch that split back in Ireland or Scotland. It's said that DNA does not mutate or change for 500 years. That caries us back to the days of Columbus and his trips to America.
It would be nice for another Pharr who traces his family back to any brother of Edward to take the test. Would then double check to make sure of the family line. Remember Y DNA is only carried in a direct Male line. So to match it has to carry from son to son.Also any Farr's trying to connect to which branch should do the test. I suggest a family group gets one male Pharr or Farr in there line to do it for the entire family. Any in the direct male line be it cousin or uncle can do it.
