Kits in this subgroup show a dis-similarity other kits in the Seven Brothers Group mostly well in excess of 14%%. Close matches occur with some kits in the Bridge group, but it is likely that these matches do not indicate a relatively close common ancestry. As a group, these kits bear little relationship to each other, and are included as a separate group only because their matches with kits in other groups are worse than that obtained with the Seven Brothers.

| R1b1a2 || 37 ||16.0%||6.5% ||160416||William Cowan (43)||Person:William Cowan (25)||Lineage data provided by this kit owner generally matches Person:John Cowan (33) though the maiden name of the wife is given as Gillis rather than Gillespie. John (33) (often identified as John Alexander Cowan) is commonly identified as the son of Person:William Cowan (25)=Jane Walker. WIlliam (25) is a member of the 7 Brothers Core subgroup. YDNA connections between known members of the 7B Core subgroup, and William (25) also seem more distant than would be expected. Additional work may be needed on the lineage data.
