See below for Pending Tests for New Members and a List of Progenitors.
Logically, haplotypes (based on STR [short tandem repeat] testing) should correlate with haplogroups (based on SNP [single nucleotide polymorphism] testing), and they do.  The correlation between haplotypes and haplogroups allows one to deduce the haplogroup from the haplotype, without the added expense of SNP testing.  In the results tables, haplogroup designations without a corresponding SNP test are deductions based on the haplotype.  For common haplotypes, the haplogroup deductions are usually correct; for questionable haplotypes, the deductions can be wrong.  In these cases, FTDNA, as part of its "Haplogroup Assurance" policy, will conduct a "backbone" SNP test, free of charge, to securely determine the basic haplogroup. 

The "modal" haplotypes for the haplogroup subclades given in the tables are just that (i.e., the most common pattern for the subclade); there are variations from the modal pattern, and variations at non-defining markers do not necessarily rule out membership in the subclade.

SNP is treated, both in speech and in writing, as a word, "snip," not spelled out "S-N-P."  Hg is an abbreviation for Haplogroup. NPE is the acronym for "Non-Paternity Event," meaning a hidden adoption or illicit paternity in an individual's ancestry, in particular their patrilineal line.
Viewing Tip:  hold your cursor over a linked name in a lineage.  The full names of the husband and his spouse(s) will appear in the Status Bar of your browser, assuming you have it turned on.

First results (Markers 1-12) can be expected about six to eight weeks after return of the kit, at which time the subject will be moved to one of the haplogroup results tables (i.e., as soon as the haplogroup is known).
Test kits have a long shelf life, until they're used.  Even if you've kept your test kit a long time without using it, you can still take the sample and return the kit.  If you've taken the sample, but not returned it for an extended period, please request a replacement kit.  Likewise, if the kit has been lost, either by you or in the mail, or if the kit was simply ruined in some way, just contact FTDNA or your project admin to request a replacement kit.  There is no charge for a replacement kit.

R1b-SRY2627
Council Bryant MESSER (c1805-1870s) & Sarah [FRANKLIN]
NC to Lincoln Co., TN, to Tippah Co., MS; converted to MERCER
Two descendants are a tight match with the Pickens CORBINs indicating an NPE, which appears
to be in their line because they aren't matching the MESSER/MERCER family they should match.
Erby Gaylord CORBIN (1855-1917) & Mary Elizabeth RIDLEY
Cherokee Co., GA > Bradley Co., TN > Hughes Co., OK
A paper descendant of the above Peter CORBIN whose tested descendant matches individuals surnamed FIELDS,
so he apparently has an NPE in his line, either in or downstream of Erby. 
We won't know where the NPE occurred until more lines of Erby's descendants are tested.
R1b-L159
John A. CORBIN (1899-1966) & Lillie Mae WHITE
Gilmer Co., GA > Gordon Co., GA > Murray Co., GA > Hamilton Co., TN
John is the son of an unmarried Amanda CORBIN, descendant of the above Peter CORBIN.
Testing shows he is a genetic WOODRING, who are American descendants of
Paul VAUTRIN (c1570- ) of Goerlingen, Alsace
I2-F1295
Peter CORBIN (c1740s- ) & Elizabeth SEAWRIGHT
of Lexington Co., SC
I1-L22
Ira SHERMAN-CORBIN (1769-1810s) & Phoebe __?__
from Massachusetts to Newberry Co., SC, by 1805; widow and son to Gwinnett Co., GA
The one descendant of Ira so far tested has a close DNA match with descendants of Henry
SHERMAN of Dedham, Essex, England, so it appears this CORBIN has an NPE in his lineage.
Back in New England, there are several paper connections between these SHERMANs and the
Muddy River CORBINs, so his paper connection, if found, would presumably be to one of the them.

William Blaine CORBIN (1797/8-1850s) & Jane SANDERS

[William] Arthur CORBIN (c1750s- ), Revolutionary War Patriot
of Charleston [now Colleton] Co., then Beaufort Co., then Georgetown Co., SC
suspected of being ancestral to the Hampton CORBINs (below)
 
The Hampton CORBINs R1b-U106
Moses CORBIN (1813/4->1860) & Harriet __?__
born in South Carolina and by far the earliest CORBIN to settle in Florida
Edward CORBIN (1832-1865) & Amanda SLOAN
of Beaufort [now Hampton] Co., SC, son of Mrs. Penelope (__?__) CORBIN (c1790s-c1841)
Alfred CORBIN (1808/9-1857) & Elizabeth COLEMAN
of SC, then Claiborne Co., TN
