17th Century Saunders, Crump and Kerley Immigrants to Virginia

WHB: Because of closely matched y-chromosomal DNA of myself and others descended from men surnamed Crump, Kerley or Saunders, it seems possibly useful to compile information on when and where these surnames might be associated. Since all three are found in Colonial Virginia, I thought a good start would be George Cabell Greer’s list of early Virginia immigrants and their sponsors.
