As many may know, there is much discussion as to whether the James Claypools (father and son) who went from Sussex Co., Dela. to Virginia around 1745 descended from the Philadelphia Quaker merchant James or his brother Norton.  This is 10 generations back from me. 

If male Claypool descendants with good lineage back to each of these brothers and also one from the Virginia Jameses took the DNA test, could this controversy be settled?  If so, I'd love to help find and document such lineages.  My father's mother was a Claypool, so I can't help directly.  I am descended from the Virginia James and have good documentation of those who descended from the second James' son Abraham, as well as a few others, but don't at this time have well-documented lineages for the other lines needed.
