And based on the book, Carpenters A Plenty, by Robert C. Carpenter.

Carpenter and Zimmerman descendants of this line, who have been Y-DNA tested, are part of Group 5 of the Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project Group 5 is a very distinct Y-DNA genetic group from other Carpenter/Zimmerman groups in the Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project.

Group 5 is also unique in using Y-DNA SNP testing via FamilyTree DNA ( via the Big Y-700 testing. The Group 2 descendants are in two categories.

1) Those both genetically and genealogically connected. This includes those who are reasonably believed to be related but are not proved. Read the NOTES.

2) Those that match genetically but are NOT connected genealogically. See the marriage listed as "UNATTACHED LINEAGES" on the first page of the Descendant Report. This technique to provides those detached or unconnected descent lineages and to recognize them for their genetic connectiveness to Group 5.
