K1a4a1 based on test of great grandson thru direct female line Michael John Stewart at 23andMe.

Autosomal DNA testing:

My husband Michael John Stewart is a direct descendant and has tested at 23andme.

I would be interested in hearing from other descendants of who have tested autosomal DNA at 23andme or FTDNA.

If you haven't tested yet, but would like to know more, you can read my post about autosomal testing for genealogy HERE
