Genetic Genealogy / DNA testing

The following people have tested their DNA for genealogical purposes:

Kris Hewitt Stewart (23andMe autosomal DNA)

Brandon Gilby (23andMe autosomal DNA)

Sandra Foster (23andMe autosomal DNA)

Tiffany Hewitt (23andMe autosomal DNA)

Samuel Knox (23andMe autosomal DNA)

We would love for more people who are descendants of Robert Barr and Essy Geddis to test there as well so we can identify the segments of DNA that he has inherited from this couple.
