Family Genealogy

My gggg-grandfather is Abner H. Fish (his father is Asa Fish and grandfather is John). I have come across several references by researchers that indicate that Abner, Asa and John belong to the lineage of Fish Ancestors that origniated with Thomas Fish (Great Bowden Parish, Leicester, England) whose sons help settle the town of Sandwich in Barnstable County, Massacusetts. I have looked at names, dates, locations. Everything makes sense. What I am hesitant about involves DNA. There is a site called 'Fish Family Surname DNA Project'. It has broken all the submitted samples into groups. One is the Great Bowden Eng. group which I assume is referring to Thomas Fish and all his male decendents. There is one sample that has been submitted from a descendent of Abner and Asa Fish. They have been placed in the group called Unassigned Members not the Great Bowden Eng. group. If Abner and Asa are decendents of Thomas Fish they then should have the same male DNA as Thomas.
 
Comments:
I am surprised and pleased to find a picture of Abner H, Fish, my ancestor who was a canal boatman, who was born in Pike Co. PA in 1795 and who died in 1891.
 
I am a descendent of John Fish, brother to Thomas Fish of Great Bowden, Market Harborough, Leic., England. John settled in Groton, CT. My father had his dna test done for Ancestry.com. Let me know if you would like any info. Sue Fish.
