Basil's wife's name is Catherine Byram/Biram/Byrum/Birum Maybe even Borum in a record somewhere, but never Bynum! She is believed to be the daughter of James Byram a Revolutionary war soldier. I don't know how it got changed to Bynum on the Smith DNA site. But it needs to be fixed. Bynum is a totally different surname.

For the Smith Official DNA Project (All Locations) a minimum of 25, or better, 37 YDNA markers, is strongly recommended. Many times one can appear to match other kits but the match falls apart after 12 markers. We do not attempt to match kits into groups on less than 25 with the exception of a strong paper trail or known family kinship with another tester.
