Haplogroup R-M522/R-M198
Note that the assignments are based on a rough guess. Starting with a deed book from Middlesex Co NJ Dec 1 1778. John Flatt to John Flatt. The John Flatt who is deeding land that belonged to John Depray is son and heir of William Flatt of Woodbridge NJ. That William Smith was a son of James Flatt who had married Elizabeth Depray, daughter of John Depray. This first John deeds land  to his cousin John who lives in Harford Co MD. Travis Flatt had the sons of James Flatt as 1. Francis b c 1713 Piscataway 2. William Flatt b 1715 NJ 3 John Flatt b c 1715 and 4 Andrew Flatt b c 1717 NJ. 
John Flatt m Mary Savage (requires source proof. These Flatts from Orkney Islands ) Oral tradition for origin. One tree has James Flett m Margaret Garrioch of Orkney Islands Scotland as the early ancestor, then John Flatt b Oct 3 1724 d 1836 at maybe Giles Co TN m Mary Savage, daughter of Griffith Savage and Esther Smith. Certainly John Flatt Sr and Jr were in early Roane Co TN, along with John Jr's brother Benjamin. Given that the Flatts that match were born in PA or MD (such as David Flatt), there is additional research that needs to be done to resolve whether these are the same or separate families. Would like additional testers from Sussex and Morris County, NJ.
