-The I, I1, and I1a lineages are nearly completely restricted to northwestern Europe. These would most likely have been common
within Viking populations. One lineage of this group extends down into central Europe. Haplogroup I dates to 23,000 years ago or
longer. Lineages not in branches I1a, I1b or I1c are found distributed at low
frequency throughout Europe Group White Oak http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~hjohnson/haplogroup.i.html#Group_White_Oak

Haplogroup R1b1 -Haplogroup R1b is the most common haplogroup in European populations. It is believed to have expanded throughout Europe as humans re-colonized after the last glacial maximum 10-12 thousand years ago. This lineage is also the haplogroup containing the Atlantic modal haplotype . Group Elm

Haplogroup E3a - Haplogroup E3a is an Africa lineage. It is currently hypothesized that this haplogroup dispersed south from northern Africa within the last 3,000 years, by the Bantu agricultural expansion. E3a is also the most common lineage among African Americans
My Notes On This Group: The Roman Empire was the first to use troops all over the world they left blood groups ever where they went from Countries of Africa to England: The Roman Empire was one of the VAST spreading Empires in the World to first use troops of other Countries it conquered. The use of using other troops from Conquered Countries spread with each developing Empire.

Notes: Some Quaker dates have
been translated Before the 1752 calendar change, the first month of the
year was March. The correct date is inserted
before the quoted excerpts below. From: Mary E. Stewart
In 1752 the new year began to be counted from Jan 1. Before that it ran from March 26-March 25, Julian Calender changed. So a date in July 1750 would be earlier in the same "year" as one in Feb 1750 (which once 1752 rolled around, would be thought of as the next year). From: Barbara Schenck
Haplogroup E3b1a - This lineage is estimated to have originated in north-eastern Africa about 23,000 years ago. Some of its branches exited Africa during the Paleolithic, and today it can be found in Europe, the Middle East, and north and east Africa: DNA Of Researcher Brett Johnson
Haplo groups R1b-R1b1C is the most common haplogroup in European populations.

1823 about PVT George Connolly's (Capt Lovely's company at Petersburg) pension
application reads in part:
"In April 1781, according to expectations, the enemy appeared across the creek opposite the town (Petersburg) and commenced firing upon our Army which had formed to receive them along the street opposite side of the creek. After firing twenty-three rounds, he fell, wounded both in his arm and leg. ... The army was compelled to retreat, leaving him, John Johnson and eighteen others prisoners. They were taken by the British and carried on board their shipping (in the James River near City Point) where the ball that lodged in his leg was extracted by one of their surgeons. They were then sent to New York and put in the hospital there and upon his getting well he was confined in close prison (believed to be a hulk in the harbor) with about three hundred other American prisoners."
Seems nice of the enemy to get him well before putting him in prison
