HARRIS DNA—GROUP 18

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 April 1, 2014.

(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. 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.

At least five separate lines of descent are associated with this group.

This group belongs to the E1b1b1 haplogroup. Here are lineage charts (supported by DNA) that fall into Group 18 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 18 up to 111 markers is listed on the HARRIS Y-DNA RESULTS Page.

In order to better compare matches in Group 18, the modal listing has also been posted on Ysearch with a user ID of N9Q75. To view the modal listing go to the Ysearch user ID page for N9Q75

This modal listing has also been posted at Ancestry.com on its DNA site. For those in Group 18 who have tested (or posted their results for free) with Ancestry.com, you should find a match with Group18Modal 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 usually occur every 3 or 4 generations. Some specific markers tested are known to mutate faster than others.

Lineage #4.—DNA Kit #129122. This is for Benjamin Washington Harris (1832-1905), son of William Henry Harris (1798-1875) of Campbell Co., Virginia and Cherokee Co., North Carolina.

This family’s migration pattern is: Campbell Co., VA > Cherokee Co., NC > Bedford Co., TN > Titus Co., TX.

This DNA kit is a 67-marker test that belongs to the E1b1b1 haplogroup. It matches the 111-marker modal for Group 18 with one variance in marker 55. The kit submitter has not supplied a lineage. A few more details from other sources are added below.

Lineage #5.—DNA Kit #B1197. This is for the family of William Garren (1791-1869) of Pennsylvania. This family’s migration pattern is: Pennsylvania > Northampton Co., PA > Warren Co., NJ > Northampton Co., PA.

Although this family has a different surname, the DNA markers are matching Harris Group 18. It appears that there was a non-parental event that took place at some point in the past. Either a Garren is a biological Harris or the Harrises in Group 18 are biologically Garrens.

This is a 37+-marker test that transferred results from another company and belongs to the E1b1b1 haplogroup. It matches the 111-marker modal for Group 18 with one variance in marker 30. The kit submitter has not supplied a lineage. A few more details from other sources are added below.
