unusual question

I am wondering if any other Williamsons share a rather uncommon physical trait with my line. It seems a large number of cousins, aunt, and uncles in our branch have a rare marking on our hands. Usually on the right hand, we have an unbroken line on our palms, running horizontally from the index finger to the pinky about an inch down from our fingers. I am told by a professor that this is very rare for white Americans with Europen backgrounds--most people in this group have a broken horizontal line, with the line starting at the index finger running down towards the wrist and the line starting at the pinky running up towards the fingers, on BOTH hands. I am just curious how many other Williamsons have this trait and could it point to certain ancestors/ethnicities.
Our other family names are Cordial, Pack, Wiley, Webb.

Anyone?
