I did not find him in America until 1770. in VA. When DNA hit genealogy, I thought finally I can find something, no it does not show him related to any other Brindly's, that we have tests from. The DNA test show Stanley (Fleet, Sands) Brindle, worthington,etc. Most seem to be from Lancashire, England. Would dearly love to have your thoughts on this mystery.
