Previous Y-DNA testing

The Morse Society DNA Project subgroup: Anthony/William has one individual who has Big Y tested to: I-M253>DF29>Y2592>CTS6364>CTS10028>S6346>L22>FGC41265>S19986>S9318>Y17218>Y37109>Y16808>FT412956

Further testing needed

Other patrilineal descendants of John Barrow (and preferably via his great-grandson George Barrows [II]) are needed to NGS/WGS test to verify this haplogroup placement and possibly further refine the haplogroup as well as contact MayflowerDNA1620@gmail.com and disclose their lineage.
