Thanks Elizabeth for sharing that mutation between your family lines as well.
In my own family surname group we have quite a few mutations. 99% of them are at Rapidly Mutating markers however, but there are between 5 to 6 mutations among us.
Its unbelievable that the Same Mutations between folks who never knew of each others relationship until they took the Ydna test, seem to mismatch to each other at Exactly the Same DYS locations.
I am overwhelmed by this and FTDNA offers no explanation for it.
We are apparently all of the Same Gene Pool and all but 2 of us know that our earliest known relative came from Northern Ireland and we suspect before that from Scotland and prior to that Norway, but we have no difinitive ancestral lineage lines among any of us.
Our earliest known ancestor was born c1710 in Northern Ireland and that's as far back as we've been able to get so far.
It seems unlikely that 5 to 6 mutations could occur between our family since 1710, but after reading that mans email about the ELEVEN mismatches taking place within his immediate family, perhaps we are one of those like his...unique and unexplanable at this time.
Thanks again for sharing your info.
