[Note: FTDNA 200669 is supposed to  be descended from William Head through this lineage, but his haplogroup and haplotype do not match the rest of 
the William Head cluster (above). Was there a "non-paternal event" after the split from FTDNA 140860's ancestor Joseph Head, who married Polly Dial?
FTDNA 200669 matches 25/25 with FTDNA 160637 and FTDNA 160646 of the Phillips DNA Project, both of whom are descended from a William  
Phillips, born 1800 in Stokes Co., NC. Is William Phillips the biological father of Benjamin R. Head?]
