HARRIS DNA—GROUP 1

Compiled by Glenn Gohr

*This is a partial summary. It may take several weeks for any updates to this page after the last update from the HARRIS Y-DNA RESULTS Page. This is a time-consuming project.

Last updated January 1, 2017.

(Contact the webmaster with any further updates.)

This is an ongoing project seeking to chart out lines of descent that have been DNA tested as shown on the Harris Y-DNA Results Page. Information is based on DNA results, lineage information supplied by kit submitters, Bible records, vital records, legal documents, census records, family histories, internet sources, etc. In some cases the paper trail and/or information found on the web or other sources may be in error. Please view this information as a tool and not as proven fact.

NOTICE: Information presented in these webpages is not to be construed as PROVABLE FACTS. It is up to the user to verify all information that he/she receives. Some information has been provided by kit submitters and their own research. Other information has been added from other sources. Additions and corrections are welcome.

Lineage information in brackets lists the Group Number and the DNA Kit Number as found on the Harris Y-DNA Results Page. The kit numbers are listed in the same order as presented on the Harris Y-DNA Results Page. If you are looking for a specific kit number, click CONTROL and F at the same time. Then do a key word search by kit number or name of earliest-known ancestor. Additional information will be included as more DNA markers are tested and as more participants match up with this grouping.

This group of kits belongs to the R haplogroup. The new haplogroup listings adopted in 2014 conform to the ISOGG SNP nomenclature, which uses the shortened haplogroup name (one letter only) combined with the terminal SNP (Single Nucleotide Polymorphism). In groups where kits are matched together, they will show the same haplogroup letter, but they may show different SNP designations.

See the International Society of Genetic Genealogy (ISOGG) page for the Y-DNA Haplogroup R and its Subclades.

Here are lineage charts (supported by DNA) that fall into Group 1 of the Harris Y-DNA Results. All spouses are not shown—only the ones that are listed as the parent of the generation that follows. For questionable generations, the names are preceded by an asterisk *. This means the connection between the PERSON WITH AN ASTERISK and the PREVIOUS generation are unproven.

The modal listing of Group 1 up to 67 markers is listed on the Harris Y-DNA Results Page.

In order to better compare matches in Group 1, the modal listing has also been posted on Ysearch with a user ID of FNFEX. To view the modal listing go to the Ysearch user ID page for FNFEX

This modal listing has also been posted at Ancestry.com on its DNA site. For those in Group 1 who have tested (or posted their results for free) with Ancestry.com, you should find a match with Group1Modal and surname Harris.

For an exact match to this group, the submitter must be a male with the HARRIS surname, be from the same haplogroup, and the DNA markers from his kit number should match exactly with these results. In most cases there will be at least one variation in DNA marker values. If the two test kits are from close relatives, then the variation is due to normal mutations of DNA. DNA mutations may occur every 4 or 5 generations. Some specific markers tested are known to mutate faster than others.
From the lineages supplied, it appears that all 9 of the kit submitters in the group, descend from David Harris, Sr. (ca. 1745-ca. 1820) of Virginia and Clarke County, Georgia who is probably a descendant of Michael Woods, b. 1684.


HARRIS DNA GROUP 1 LINEAGE CHARTS
Here are lineages supplied by kit submitters as well as other documentation. The most recent representative in each line (living persons are not shown) has been tested, and their DNA markers match closely with the modal for Group 1, giving evidence for a common ancestor.

The lineage numbers assigned match up with the order in which each kit is listed on the HARRIS Y-DNA RESULTS Page.


Donate to the Harris Project General Fund

There are a few individuals who would be willing to submit a sample of the DNA if they had the money available. Currently Family Tree DNA has a link for the general fund if someone is willing to contribute money to help fund someone else’s DNA test. If you specify “Harris” it would be credited to the Harris DNA project. If you would like to donate to the general fund, use the following link and specify the surname for your donation. You may also specify one certain person to receive the donation to be used for their DNA testing. The site is: Contributing to the General Fund

In order to use money for the general fund, if you have donated the money, you can contact FTDNA and ask them to credit your money in the general fund to a specific kit or test that is being ordered. Otherwise the Harris Project Administrators can use the money for a future testee that is needing monetary assistance in order to get testing done.


Lineage #1.—DNA Kit #N18809. This is for the line of William M. Harris, Jr. (1824-1885) of Marshall Co., Mississippi, great-grandson of David Harris, Sr. (ca. 1745-ca. 1820) of Clarke County, Georgia as listed in other lineages in this group. David Harris, Sr. is the earliest proven ancestor of this line, and close DNA matches indicate that his father would have been a Woods, most likely an unknown son (who could have died young) of Michael Woods (1684-1762) of Albemarle Co., VA, indicating a subsequent adoption or similar event.

This family’s migration pattern is: Virginia > Clarke Co., GA > Marshall Co., MS > Ellis Co., TX > Dallas Co., TX.

This kit is a 12-marker test that belongs to the R haplogroup. It matches the 67-marker modal as much as has been tested so far with no variances. The lineage supplied by the DNA Kit submitter at http://www.harrisdna.org/info/N18809.html is found here:

Because of a very close match with a Woods family DNA, Kit#17997 has been moved to the Woods Y-DNA surname project. It is thought by the DNA submitter that David Harris appears to descend from a Woods line based on exact DNA matches from the Sorenson Molecular Genealogy Foundation database. The lineage supplied by the DNA Kit submitter at http://www.harrisdna.org/info/17997.html is found here:

Michael Woods (b. 1684 d. 1762) or a very close relation such as a brother

Lineage #7.—DNA Kit #140048—Ysearch ID #CVQTG. This is for the line of George Thomas Harris (1857-1949) of Marshall County, Alabama (Generation 5), who also descends from David Harris, Sr. (ca. 1745-ca. 1820) of Clarke County, Georgia as listed in other lineages in this group.

David Harris, Sr. is the earliest proven ancestor of this line, and close DNA matches indicate that his father would have been a Woods, most likely an unknown son (who could have died young) of Michael Woods (1684-1762) of Albemarle Co., VA, indicating a subsequent adoption or similar event.

This Kit’s Ysearch user ID is CVQTG. Additional information on the paternal line can be found on theYsearch user ID page for CVQTG

This family’s migration pattern is: Virginia > Clarke Co., GA > Jasper Co., GA > Chambers Co., AL > Marshall Co., AL.

This kit is a 67-marker test that belongs to the R haplogroup. It matches the 67-marker modal except for a variance at marker 33. The kit submitter has not provided a lineage. A few details from other sources are added below.

Lineage #9.—DNA Kit #144710—Ysearch ID #WPDGD. This is for the line of George Thomas Harris (1857-1949) of Marshall County, Alabama (Generation 5), who also descends from David Harris, Sr. (ca. 1745-ca. 1820) of Clarke County, Georgia as listed in other lineages in this group.

David Harris, Sr. is the earliest proven ancestor of this line, and close DNA matches indicate that his father would have been a Woods, most likely an unknown son (who could have died young) of Michael Woods (1684-1762) of Albemarle Co., VA, indicating a subsequent adoption or similar event.

This Kit’s Ysearch user ID is WPDGD. Additional information on the paternal line can be found on theYsearch user ID page for WPDGD

This family’s migration pattern is: Virginia > Clarke Co., GA > Jasper Co., GA > Chambers Co., AL > Marshall Co., AL.

This kit is a 37-marker test that belongs to the R haplogroup. . It matches the 67-marker modal except for a variance at marker 12. The kit submitter has not supplied a lineage. A few details from other sources are added below.
