Completed as of March 24, 2021:
- Recruiting additional direct male-line Daniel Cole descendants for NGS/WGS SNP testing - anyone interested in submitting their DNA for testing should contact Raymond T. Wing (email: wing.genealogist AT gmail DOT com)
Still to do as of March 24, 2021
- NGS/WGS test multiple Daniel Cole (and hopefully through son John) descendants to firmly place family clade as well as discover any subclades unique to descendants lines

DNA Results I-A16747
The Cole (etc) DNA Project Group: I - M253 - Family Group 1 has four individuals with a Most Distant Known Paternal Ancestor (MDKPA) being Daniel Cole (father of John). Two of these individuals have done some Y-SNP testing and fall under Haplogroup: I1-DF29>Z58>Z139>S2293>Z2541>S19185>S23519>S20030>BY1482>A7000>A11161>A16748>FGC54631>A16747
NGS/WGS testing of known John Cole Y-DNA descendants would sollidify the haplogroup for the family and possibly define subclades for descendants.
