The problem is, did a brother or nephew or cousin of S10678's immigrant ancestor also immigrate to NJ, any time from the 17th century down to the generation before your mystery man?
Right; in addition to Transportee and his brothers who are known to have arrived in NJ in the 1680's, any number of their male-line relatives may also have done the same.
It is also theoretically possible that any or all of the participants in the Family Name DNA Project are biological outcomes of a non-paternity event between themselves and their paper-trail Earliest Documented Ancestor, so that I could be biologically descended from their so-called ancestor while they are not.
Emerson was gracious enough to approve the ensemble I had selected for him - that of a Crusader. I was his lady, in flowing robes and a pointed headdress. Emerson liked his sword and beard very much, but he objected to my pointed hat, on the grounds that it wobbled a bit and would probably poke someone's eye out.
