Hi Oz Livingstone,
Welcome back.
Just to refresh my memory and see if I have the Y111-5 Livingston DNA matches correct can you check this info below:
Phillip Livingston (your cousin) His Livingston Y DNA Matches at 111 markers tested Big Y R-TF134647
Ancestors James born 1763 son ofAlexander Livingston and Elizabeth Hogg of Tranent Parish, East Lothian, Scotland
111-5 Ronald Lindsay Livingston Ancestor John Liveston (Livingston) Forfar(Angus County), Scotland Big Y R-TF13467

Yes that is correct R-FT134647 for both my male Livingstone cousin Phillip Livingstone and for Ronald L Livingstone II. Both have done Big Y. Ronald lives in North Carolina (John Livingston/Liveston b. abt 1751 Forfar)

Hi Oz Livingstone,

I am not that familiar with the Counties of Lowland Scotland but I realize now that Fofar and Glamis where Edwin Livingston's ancestors come from are both part of the County of Angus in Lowland Scotland. Fofar is actually a parish and town in the County of Angus formerly Fofarshire. Angus is the Ancient name for the County of Angus and then is was changed to Forfar or Forfarshire and then back in 1928 to the County of Angus. So one way or another Ronald and Edwin Livingstone appear to be be descended from Livingstone's that resided in County of Fofarshire renamed more recently the County of Angus. And their ancestors I assume were ancestrally connected to your Livingstones who resided in East Lothian. Ronalds SNP results so close to your cousins certainly leave little doubt to that.

Interestingly if you look on a County of Map of Scotland at the location of East Lothian and the County of Angus they are in relatively close proximity to one another in Lowland Scotland. So the DNA testing suggests you and your cousin's East Lothian Livingstone ancestors were apparently somehow related to Livingstones that resided in the nearby County of Angus. It still the leaves the question of where the East Lothian and County of Angus Livingstones ultimately originated. They do appear to be definitely of lowland Livingstone Y DNA match group. Edwin has not done the SNP test as your cousin and Ronald I assume, so that would be useful, if he has any interest, to confirm through the Big Y SNP test if he shares the same SNP results as your Livingstone cousin and Ronald do.

regards,

Donald
