Who has had the DNA testing done and has anyone been able to trace their Field(s) ancestor back to Rhode Island?

I have had my Y-chromosome tested. I am a Field from the VA, KY & IN line.  I would like to see some Field tests from the New England branch to see if we are related.

Our branch of the Field Family descends from Abraham Field (1636-1674) of Westmoreland Co. VA.  Of special interest to this branch of the Field Family is the fact that Joseph and Reuben Field accompanied Lewis & Clark on the Corps of Discovery.

Greetings!  I may have Fields ancestors going back to Rhode Island.  The data on my lineage is a bit sketchy.  I've borrowed information from other genealogists, none of whom has supplied verifiable sources. Here's my assumed paternal genealogy:

Robert Clifford Geary (my father), b. 1928, Ashland Co., OH
Robert James Fields Geary (my grandfather who was adopted and given the Geary name) b. 1910, McKean Co., PA
George N. Fields, b. 1872, Elk Co., PA
Alonzo Fields, b. 1842, Howard, Steuben Co., NY
William Howard Fields, b. 1819, Howard, Steuben Co., NY
Arnold Fields, b. 1796, unknown, possibly RI
Charles Fields, b. 1765, Glouchester, Providence Co., RI?
Charles Fields, b. 1730, Glouchester, Providence Co., RI?

Greetings Joe,

I'm a 66/67 marker match with William Geary but my last name is Drake. If you're from the same line as him I'd love to compare our results. My Family Tree DNA test # is 247536.

I have known Joe Fields(admin at this project)  for over 30 years when we first began to research together by parcel post and courthouses and books and correspondence...I am hoping that I can make the next step in my learning process.  Thanks Joe!

Being female, I can't take a Y-DNA test but I have had Ancestry's autosomal and ftdna's mtdna.  I uploaded my autosomal raw data to ftdna and to gedmatch.com to take advantage of their databases.

 My Field pedigree begins with John Field (b abt 1745, m Jane Millen abt 1763, d 08May1823 Bedford Co. VA); their son James Millen Field (b 02May1788 in Maryland, m Elizabeth Buford 18Oct1814, d 15Jun1854 in Bedford Co. VA); their son, John Buford Field(b. 23Nov1819, m. Elizabeth Pullen 23Dec1842, d. 16Apr1865); their son William Daniel Fields(b. 29Sep1843 in Bedford Co. VA, m. Eliza Jane Johnson 17Nov1869, d. 1914).  I am descended from one of their daughters.

My suggestion is for all project participants to also take an autosomal test and upload their raw data (free) to gedmatch.com where there are many utilities for analyzing matches.  The Y chromosome is only one of 46 and a short one at that (though admittedly quite useful); careful analysis of autosomal data with proven Field matches may help participants resolve some of their issues.  It will take autosomal test results analysis to determine whether different Y-DNA Field lines are, in fact, related.  Matches on sufficiently large segments of any chromosome indicates a common ancestor.  One caveat:  I am finding that my Virginia families intermarried a LOT!
