Subject: [DNA] guidance on J2b2

The Townsend project has a family group of 15 persons most predicted
haplogroup J2 with two tested J2b and J2b2. Six have 16 at DSY 19 (a slow
mutator) and ten have 15.
The six descend from a Richard Townsend who came to America with William
Penn. They have a documented history back to Bucklebury, Berkshire England.
The ten all seem to have Benedictus Townsend as their earliest ancestor in
the US south beginning in the 1700s.
There is no identified connection between these two subgroups and so the
connection is assume to have been earlier and back in England.
Of the 150 Townsend Y results this is the only group that is the J2
Would 15 or 16 be the more common marker result for DSY 19?
