If the early male lines of both surnames were in the same area at the
same time in colonial Pennsylvania then I think you should explore it
further for a possible connection. What are the two surnames?

The surnames DO NOT match. They are not even close. The area and time frame look very promising: Pennsylvania in the early 1700's. What am I to make of this? The markers have proven to be somewhat rare. So should I attach a lot of importance to this? Thanks!
