Mitochondria DNA Haplogroup W1-T119C Confirmed

It had been strongly suggested that my mtDNA haplogroup was W1e, and until I updated myself with more elaborate testing, I couldn't really argue with that assessment. However, I now have confirmation from both Family Tree DNA and James Lick's mtDNA Analysis Tool: I'm definitely W1-T119C. Of course, I suspected as much, because my two matches in the database prior to my upgrade are both the same haplogroup. With the upgrade, I now have five matches (one replacing one of the original two individuals, for some reason). None of them seem very familiar to me, except one has Cranfield (an unusual surname) listed in their family surnames. However, for me Cranfield / Crankfield is a surname exclusive to my paternal lineage. So that doesn't quite add up here.

El Cid's Wilma webpage (Ian Logan, I believe) states: "Ancient DNA results show W+119 was present in Germany 7300 years ago, in burials of the LBK culture. Finds of the same type continue in the later Schöningen, Salzmünde, and Bernburg cultures through 5000 years ago."

James Lick's report was interesting and very thorough as usual:

mthap version 0.19b (2015-05-11); haplogroup data version PhyloTree Build 17 (2016-02-18)
raw data source XXXXXX-FASTA.fasta (16KB)
FASTA format was uploaded. Based on the markers found, assuming the following regions were completely sequenced: HVR1 (16001~16569) HVR2 (1~574) CR (575~16000).
Found 16569 markers at 16569 positions covering 100.0% of mtDNA.

Clearly, it is the 119C mutation on my DNA which distinguishes it from both W and W1. My W1-T119C haplogroup has no more relationship to W1e than to most other W subclades, apparently. It is a direct offshoot from W ---> W1. The 7864T mutation differentiates both W1-T119C and W1 from W. My six extra mutations not ordinarily associated with W1-T119C include at least four markers for X, most likely because my mtDNA is supposed to be Cherokee (according to family history). The Genographic Project originally reported my mitochondria as "X", and I still have the certificate to prove it.
