DNA genealogy

The issue may actually be able to be solved by mitochondrial DNA, but as Susan pointed out, it won't be in any Bearce DNA. Austin and Mary purportedly had 9 daughters, some of whom married and had daughters. it is their female descendant who may carry the answer to this puzzle. I am currently working on an internship on this subject and thus know a little about it. It's a huge project, if you can imagine tracing women backwards. anyway, there may be an answer forthcoming but it may take years.
