Joyce,

Regrettably, no, none that we know of for sure. My cousin, Hiram Ben Cooper, actually got a call from the 10th Earl of Shaftsbury, Anthony Ashley Cooper, several years back and he agreed to join the group. A YDNA kit was sent to him, but he was murdered before he got it sent back. There was quite a media-storm over his murder in the UK. His successor, the 11th Earl, died very shortly after he took the office. His youngger brother Nicholas Ashley Cooper is now the 12 Earl, and has declined all pleas to fulfil his father's intent to be tested thus far. I think it has been a few years since he was asked...he might have a different opinion now.
