I wonder if any of descendants of Cornelius ROBERTS is in the DNA project?

The BOWLING family is in the Pocahontas book.

List --
Thomas Boon Roberts, s/o Jesse Roberts & Nancy Anderson, who married
Nancy
Bowling, d/o "Bad Eli" Bowling of Clay Co., KY is my direct line. Please
note the Thomas Boon in the list below along with a couple of Roberts in
Surry Co., NC. The Harris & Roberts family below are quite likely the
ancestors of those connecting to Jesse Roberts and to Group 5 Bollings
both of
Clay Co., KY. The DNA of these Roberts matches those of Roberts Cove in
Grayson Co., VA. To Bolling researchers -- Christopher Clark, f/o Bowling
Clark
below, loaned money to James Bowling [wife Mary] of Goochland before he
died in 1729. Looks like full circle.
