Well, I looked at that Laymon haplotype, since I was curious about the
Rockingham Co., VA connection. My mother's father's family were all
from that county. Although he doesn't mention this spelling, I suspect
Laymon is probably derived from Lehman, a good old Germanic name common
among the Pennsylvania Dutch folk who were the main settlers of
Rockingham Co., in the Shenandoah Valley region. I have a PA Lehman
way, way back on my father's side of our family tree.
But with so few markers, who knows if they are really part of that
clade. Good luck, I hope you can get them to upgrade.
