Need Shipman males to do the "Y" Chromosome DNA test

I would guess that some of you studying Crawford Co. genealogy have roots to a Shipman family that was in the NW corner town of Hardinville. Our frustrations are great with this line as there are more than one alleged lineage for the patriarch of the line that lived at died at Hardinville, IL. This is Stephen Shipman, born 1788, allegedly at Virginia and who has almost nothing proven about his birth and migration path, although much is written about him, a great deal of it conflicts. This creates the perfect case for the need to reach out to Y chromosome DNA testing. Please, if you know any Shipman males, it would behoove all descendants of this man to try to get a few to have the test done for genealogy purposes. The cost has dropped dramatically over the past few years and the number of markers tested has risen to 5 times what was originally available. I'm not an authority but I do have a legimitate genealogy reason to find and convince anyone who fits the needed description ( basically a male named Shipman who was not adopted and who can show his lineage from the Crawford Co. Stephen with a reasonable degree of confidence). - Thanks, Allan Griffith, Bloomington, IL -
