The "I" Haplotype is significantly different than most of the tested Beasley men. It is likely that some earlier male ancestor was NOT a Beasley. In this group, there are several men with other surnames that matched, mostly Beardsley's. It appears that the Beardsley ancestry may have been much earlier. Therefore, it is possible that some descendants varied the surname to Beasley.
