From the Y-Results page groupings, it is clear that Group 1, Group
2, and Group 8 all share a recent common ancestor.
It would appear that the I1c line of the Talley family has
encountered two separate RecLOH events since the founding.
One partial RecLOH event separates Group 1 from Group. DYS464 has
changed from 11-14-14-15 to 11-11-14-14 (or possibly, but less
likely, the reverse). But this was probably a single event.
Another event separates Groups 1from Group 8 (assuming the paper
trail connecting kits 41449 and 30586 is correct), and this one is a
more expansive RecLOH event affecting DYS459, DYS464, and CDY but
still counts as a single mutation.
This is a complex situation to analyze mathematically, for lots of
reasons. Based strictly on the DNA, I don't know if you will be
able say more than that your founding I1c Talley probably lived 250
to 500 years ago.
