Genetic Genealogy / DNA testing

The following descendants have tested their DNA for genealogical purposes:

Kris Hewitt Stewart (23andMe autosomal DNA)

Richard Monette (23andMe autosomal DNA)

We would love for more people who are descendants of John McConnery and Martha Mary Maxwell to test there as well so we can identify the segments of DNA that we have inherited from this couple.
