Had a bit of time on my hands so for curiosities sake
I ran your 12 markers against all other perfect 12 markers in the Y base:

here are the hits:

Ireland: **note these are primarily Northern Irish names

Powers: Ireland
Warden: Ireland
Flanagan: Ireland
Mahoney: Ireland
MacNamara: Ireland
Nesbitt: Ireland
Elliott: Ireland
Ervin: Ireland
McCarrick: Ireland
Bell: Ireland
Gilston: Ireland
O Shields: Ireland

Scotland:

King
Robertson
Gelston
Stewart
Clow
McWhirter
Haire
Adamson


England:

Fretwell
Sherman
Estes
Carey (this is an Irish name)
Eve
Goff and Gough
Tims
Adams
Thompson (this is Welsh)
Wallis (this is Scots)
Essary
Cooke
Corbin
Etherton

Wales:

Thomas
Glamorgan
Francis
Emory

And you have a handful of German hits.....

The ancient migration of these Celts was over into southern England...from mainland Germany Belgium regions..up the coast to Scotland.....
over to Western Scotland and over to Ireland

They dead end at Ulster......and form a deep DNA cluster

This DNA profile at 12 markers is primarily associate with northern Ireland: over to Scotland......and some residue in England...

and some cross channel traffic to Wales over time.

The Acadian Modal Value DNA profile is a 23@ 390
or
Germanic Visigothic profile
not Celt
consistent with the history of the ancient tribes of
Poitou.....

There is a better than average chance your man is of Irish or Scots decent...

as the names you hit with are Ulster and Ayrshire Scotland names

Its very unlikely De Forest is of ancient French origin:
possibly recent (as in 1600s)...

Its not the locus of this DNA profile

Happy huntin!
