HARRIS DNA—GROUP 21

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.

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.

Three different lines have been submitted for Group 21. So far none of these have been connected.

This group belongs to the I1 haplogroup. Here are lineage charts (supported by DNA) that fall into Group 21 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 21 up to 67 markers is listed on the HARRIS Y-DNA RESULTS Page.

In order to better compare matches in Group 21, the modal listing has also been posted on Ysearch with a user ID of NQAC7. To view the modal listing go to the Ysearch user ID page for NQAC7

This modal listing has also been posted at Ancestry.com on its DNA site. For those in Group 21 who have tested (or posted their results for free) with Ancestry.com, you should find a match with Group21Modal 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.

HARRIS DNA GROUP 21 LINEAGE CHARTS


Lineage #1.—DNA Kit #10553—Ysearch ID #BCGWX.

This is for the line of Samuel Harris (ca. 1818-ca. 1862) of Newton Co., Missouri. Although Samuel’s parentage is unknown, of interest is that Samuel Harris married Elizabeth Harris, a cousin. She is the daughter of Benjamin Harris (ca. 1760-ca. 1829) of Virginia and Blount County, Tennessee and his wife Eleanor.

This kit’s Ysearch user ID is BCGWX. Additional information on the paternal line can be found on Ysearch user ID page for BCGWX

This family’s migration pattern is: Blount Co., TN > Newton Co., MO > Jackson Co., MO.

This is a 67-marker test that matches the 67-marker modal for Group 21 with variances in markers 34 and 35. This kit belongs to the I1 haplogroup. The lineage supplied by the DNA Kit submitter at http://www.harrisdna.org/info/10553.html can be found here:

Benjamin Harris b. abt 1760 in VA m. Eleanor? d. abt 1829 in Blount Co TN
