That's a pretty straightforward result. Without any additional
information I would agree that 32027 would be the likely closest
to the ancestral type, except perhaps at 576. But since you have
a paper trail, it would be helpful to know which of the six
testees group with which son of the ancestral type.

Also ... please, since you seem to know the paper trails completely,
add the data to Kerchner's Y-Chromosome log for mutation rates. It looks
like a large and useful set of data.
