|I finished downloading and reading all 13 of the .pdf files posted by
Dr. Tyrone BOWES in his SCOTTISH Origines webpages (some deleted there)
I didn't find any ELDER names, but I believe that Dr. BOWES' case study of TERRY family is the closest to the DNA origins for "PAXTANG PA" DNA ELDER.
I recognized McNEILL and the ISLES from
Alasdair MacDonald's I2b1-L126 Viking DNA information, which is
also in "PAXTANG PA" DNA.

"Figure 4: The Clan territories of the Western Isles of Scotland.
"Mr Terry's Genetic Homeland (orange broken circle) is situated in the
Western Isles of Scotland in the ancient Clan territory of the McNeill's
which surrounds the ruins of Castle Swin on the Kintyre peninsula [ARGYLL].
It is here that the McNeill farming community could be found in 1841
farming the lands of their ancestors and surrounded by the ancient Clan
territories of their genetic cousins the McInnes, McIntyre's, McLaren, and MacDonald's (red arrows)."
