my name is mike townsend from albany ny. i was told by my dna that i come from the martin family water town mass, 
  an that my nearist relative is John Townsend 1785. i'm sure that my greatgrand father is Robert H Townsend born 
  1852 Saugerties NY, wife's name Susan Van Dyke 1861 Catskill NY.I belive that James Townsend 1827 Saugerties 
   NY married Maryan not sure of last name mybe VanSteenburgh 1831 Saugerties NY. other than a 1855 census i 
   can't fine anything on either one. i was hopeing you may have something on them. i was told that Robert Townsend 
   1797 - 1853 Saugerties NY, wife Margarte Cole 1802  Dutchess co were my 3rd g--grandfather & mother, an i can't 
    fine anything on them to hook them up to my family. if i can hook up to John Townsend 1785 than i can go into the 
    the Martin family. any help you can give would be a great help. i don't know how to read those dna chart's. thank's  
   for your time.   Mike‚Äč
