Completed as of March 23, 2021:
- Recruiting additional direct male-line Jonathan Higgins descendants for further 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 23, 2021
- NGS/WGS test multiple descendants of Thomas Terry firmly place family clade as well as test descendants to discover any subclades unique to descendants lines

Previous Y-DNA testing
The Terry DNA Project Group: Haplogroup I - Lineage 02 I-P37> I-M423> I-CTS5375> I-L161> I-S2639> I-L1498> I-A10029> I-Y28990 gave the following haplogroup to the family:
Further DNA testing needed
NGS/WGS testing of descendants of Thomas Terry would help verify and likely further define the family haplogroup.
