Completed as of January 31, 2022:
- Recruiting patrilineal (all male-line)John Coe descendants for NGS/WGS SNP testing - anyone interested in submitting their DNA for testing should contact MayflowerDNA1620@gmail.com
Still to do as of October 29, 2020
- NGS/WGS test multiple Coe descendants to firmly place family clade as well as discover any subclades unique to descendants' lines

DNA results R1b-DF89
Previous Y-DNA testing
The Coe Family DNA Project subgroup: Matthew Coe has two individuals. Family Tree DNA predicts they fall under R1b-M269. Plugging in the 67 Y-STR modal values into Nevgen gives a prediction of R1b U106>Z381>Z301>S1688>U198>>DF89 with an 87.18% probability.
Further needed testing
We need patrilineal (all male-line) descendants of John Coe to WGS/NGS test to confirm and further refine the haplogroup placement.
- There appears to be a third tester who has declined to have his results posted to the Project, but has tested 67 Y-STRs.
