06/23/2009: Group 21 has a possible Irish Match!

Phillips Family Group 21 has a possible Irish match with a man who has the last name Philben, an Irish variation of Phillips.  Kit number 65465 has only tested 12 markers, but he is a perfect 12/12 match with Group 21.  This participant traces his Philben line back to a John Philbin born about 1820 in Gorteenmore, County Mayo, Ireland.  Two other members of Group 21 trace their Phillips line back to Pembrokeshire, Wales, in 1835.
