I am looking for a direct male descendant of Benjamin Johsnon for the purpose of a DNA test.

My husband's DNA matches a descendant of Franklin Johnson (Francis in the 1850 Cabell Co. VA Census). Franklin was a son of Benjamin Johnson. His brothers were Burwell, John, Squire Bremmer, Lewis, Merritt, Libra Smoot, and Sampson.

My husband's name is Adkins/Atkins. We believe his grandfather was the illegitimate child of Caroline Adkins and Franklin Johnson or a close relative of Franklin's. Caroline was living in Franklin's household in the 1850 Cabell Co. Census.

To add more confusion, my husband's DNA also matches that of a descendant of one David C. Spears of Lawrence Co. OH, which is just across the Ohio River from Cabell Co. WV. David was supposedly the son of George Washington Spears but his birth date is in question.

I am in contact with the descendant of David Spears and we would like to find a male descendant of either family to take the DNA test that will confirm whether we are Johnsons or Spears. We are willing to help pay for a DNA test if we can find someone who is willing to joint the Johnson DNA project through FamilyTreeDNA.

Any help you can give us will be greatly appreciated.
