DNA Matches

I recently had my DNA test done at Ancestry and at Family Tree DNA and put up an ancestry chart that included Phoebe Bayles as the wife of Robert Muir. I have 230 DNA matches with others who had family trees at Ancestry.com. When I looked at each of the 207, I found that 21 of them were descendants of Daniel Bayles and Joanna Lake or a generation further back. This is 6% of all my confirmed connections. I found another six at Family Tree DNA, which has far fewer family trees. I expect that many more that did not post a family tree chart since the 230 is only a small fraction of all my thousands of matches there. This is strong confirmation that I and all Muir, Kilgore, and Frier family members are descended from Daniel Bayles and Joanna Lake.
