Are there any known male descendants of this Lewis Whitfield who have tested at least 37 marker y-DNA?  This Lewis Whitfield and his family lived close to a Brock family in Center Township in Pickens (later Oconee) county SC.  One of my great-Grandmothers had a son out-of-wedlock and passed her surname (Brock) to him.  My generation has always heard that our grandfather's father was a Whitfield.  My great-grandmother Brock's brother (Isaac J. Brock) married into the William Franklin Whitfield family around 1880. This William was a son of Lewis, so the two families lived close from1860 till 1880.
I recently tested 66 of 67 markers for a William Whitfield who almost matches DNA for a John Cooley.  If any known male descendants of Lewis Whitfield matches my DNA this will give me a better lead for narrowing down who my great-grandfather might be.
