You can read Part I HERE.
I wanted to give you an update of where I am thus far. I have received many responses and all but one have been very nice. EVERY one has told me they copied from another tree but I was able to do a little gentle teaching that was well-received. I had one person who told me I was wrong because there were over 100 trees that say that Samuel was the son of James so that was correct. I might have messaged him back a little more forcefully than I did the others.
I have only found one person this is actually a direct line descendant of Samuel and he is very interested in taking a yDNA test after I explained to him what a DNA test could tell us. My uncle took a yDNA test for me and he is in the direct line of a known son of James so I have something to compare to. Maybe I will luck up.
