Neanderthal genes as a results of my testing with 23andMe, comprise 2.7% of my genes. The average European of which I am one, is the same 2.7%, as is the average Japanese user.

Neanderthal Features   ” Heavy ridge eyebrows. Long, low bigger skull.  Prominent nose with developed nasal chambers for cold air protection. “

He first located in Northumberland County, VA., which became later Isle of Wight county. His son, Robert left a will in 1681 and it is most interesting to read. The Bittle clan later removed to Southampton County VA, thence to Northampton County NC, where John L Bittle was born in 1806 to John Bittle(1)/Polly Cole. John L Bittle(2) would end up moving to Illinois with his family of 6, where one finds that family in the 1818 Franklin County IL (later Union), census.
