Some Descendants of William Comstock

My mother's paternal family is the first family I began to research. There are several books about the Comstocks. Probably the most well known of these is The Comstock Family in America by John Adams Comstock. I have found a few errors in this book.
I have also recently found some parish register entries that appear to possibly be those of the immigrant William Comstock's marriage and baptisms of his children. Although these appear to be more than coincidental, additional research in the English records is needed.

One personal note about this particular Comstock line. I have four male first cousins who carry the Comstock surname.
Unfortunately, not one of them has a son to carry on that name.
We will "daughter out" with my generation after carrying the Comstock name in America for nearly 370 years.
There are still many other Comstock lines of this family in the United States and Canada.

PLEASE NOTE: I am the administrator of a Comstock DNA project. There are remaining questions concerning the four proposed sons of the immigrant William Comstock, only two of which can be conclusively documented. Perhaps DNA testing will help solve the problem. You must be a male with the surname Comstock to participate.
