Reeder/Reader DNA results

Posted: 8 Jul 2013 8:43AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Reeder, Reader, Vowles, Leavell, Davis, Corbin, Snider, Johnson, Green
Based on my own research and the result of dozens of autosomal DNA matches, I feel confident that I descend from Simon Reeder (abt 1639 ~ abt 1685) and Virtue [Vowles], who, according to prior research(1), may or may not have been his only wife. From this union, I trace my lineage as follows:

Simon Reeder (1639-1685) -> John Reeder (1664-1717) -> Simon Reeder (17??-1797) -> William Reeder (1765-1826) -> Elizabeth Reeder (1772-1870) -> Mary Leavell (1803-1879) -> Frances Savilla Davis (1837–1895) -> Henryetta Florence Corbin (1860-1900) -> Evie Savilla Snider (1881-1966) – Martha Cathryn Johnson (1921-2004) -> data on living family members omitted.

Further DNA research has turned up a puzzle in the Reeder data. I appear to have multiple matches to Joanna Reeder (1669-1723) who married Judge William Green (1671-1722). From my research it appears as though Joanna Reeder descends from a different Reeder line than Simon Reeder.

Does anyone have any information showing a connection between these two Reeder lines? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
