HARRIS DNA—GROUP 4

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 August 1, 2015.

(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 pointed 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.

Over 40 different DNA kits have been submitted that match up with Group 4. Several different lines for Group 4 seem to trace back to Thomas Harris (ca. 1636-ca. 1688) of Isle of Wight Co., Virginia, according to the family records available from those who have submitted DNA samples. Two other lines go back to Britton H. Harris (1803-1859) of Darlington Co., South Carolina. The other kits that have been submitted are not yet matched up with these two groups, but the DNA markers appear to be a close match.

There has been much discussion on the Harris lists on Rootsweb as to whether Group 4 or Group 12 descends from Sergeant John Harris (ca. 1588-ca. 1638) of Charles City Co., Virginia. The DNA of the two groups does not match. It would be helpful to find a DNA submitter in England that traces back to Sir William Harris (1556-1616) of Creeksea, County Essex, England.

This group belongs to the I haplogroup (longhand=I1 haplogroup). Here are lineage charts (supported by DNA) that fall into Group 4 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 4 up to 111 markers is listed on the HARRIS Y-DNA RESULTS Page.

In order to better compare matches in Group 4, the modal listing has also been posted on Ysearch with a user ID of NGPM4. To view the modal listing go to the Ysearch user ID page for NGPM4

This modal listing has also been posted at Ancestry.com on its DNA site. For those in Group 4 who have tested (or posted their results for free) with Ancestry.com, you should find a match with Group4Modal 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.

To assist in research and discussion, two special e-mail lists for members of Group 4 have been established on Yahoo! Groups. The Yahoo! Groups are a combination of mailing lists with other features such as photo and database storage, polling, etc.

To view the group home pages on Yahoo for these lists, go to:

Lineage #11.—DNA Kit #23695—Ysearch ID #G8RF8. This is for a line that goes back to William Henry Tyner (1844-ca. 1908) of Phillips Co., Arkansas.

Because the DNA matches others from Group 4, there is no doubt that the ancestors of this line trace back to Sarah Tyner, daughter of Nicholas Tyner of Isle of Wight Co., Virginia. She had 3 children by John Harris (ca. 1665-ca. 1712), son of Thomas Harris (ca. 1636-ca. 1688) of Isle of Wight Co., Virginia. This kit belongs to the Tyner DNA Project and is listed on the Tyner Results Page and Tyner Results Page with FTDNA with the same kit number.

The Tyner Surname DNA Project includes at least 3 kits submitted for descendants of Sarah Tyner and John Harris. Also, Y-Search lists other kits with matching DNA and a lineage going back to this couple.

This family’s migration pattern is: Virginia > Isle of Wight Co., VA > Chowan District, NC > Hamilton Co., TN > Lafayette Co., MS > Phillips Co., AR.

> This kit’s Ysearch user ID is G8RF8. Additional information on this DNA kit and the paternal line can be found on the Ysearch user ID page for G8RF8. This is a 37-marker test that belongs to the I-M253 haplogroup/SNP (longhand=I1 haplogroup). It matches the 111-marker modal for Group 4, with one variant at marker 32.

Lineage #13.—DNA Kit #8910—Ysearch ID #TSPX5. This is for the line of Edward Harris, Jr. (ca. 1685-ca. 1740) of Isle of Wight Co., Virginia (Generation #3). This is the same line as Kit #39463. Edward Harris, Jr. is a brother of West Harris shown in the lineage for Kit #26363 and #49061. His lineage goes back to Thomas Harris (ca. 1636-ca. 1688) of Isle of Wight Co., VA (Generation #1). Earlier lineages have said that Thomas Harris of Isle of Wight was a grandson of Sergeant John Harris (ca. 1588-ca. 1638) of Charles City Co., VA and great-grandson of Sir William Harris (1556-1616) of Creeksea, County Essex, England. But this earlier link is now questionable.

This family’s migration pattern is: Virginia > Isle of Wight Co., VA > Southampton Co., VA > Portsmouth, VA.

Lineage #25.—DNA Kit #B1308—Ysearch ID #ZZ8JQ. This is for the line of Jehu Herring (1830-1901) of North Carolina. Although the surname is not HARRIS, the kit submitter has chosen to join the Harris Surname Project because the DNA of this line matches that of other lineages from Group 4. Jehu’s parents, Ezekiel Herring and Rhoda Sarratt did not marry until July 1831 in Randolph Co., NC. It appears that either Rhoda was married previously, there was an adoption, or some other event that would place Jehu as a match to the Harris Group 4 DNA. This family lived in close proximity with Britton H. Harris (1803-1859) of Group 4 who md. Sintha Pheriby Mixon, and Pheriby’s father was named Jehu Mixon, if that is a clue.

This family’s migration pattern is: Duplin Co., NC > Randolph Co., NC > Jersey Co., IL > Navarro Co., TX.

This is a 111-marker test that belongs to the I-M253 haplogroup/SNP (longhand=I1 haplogroup). It matches the 111-marker modal, with no variances.

Lineage #26.—DNA Kit #B1547—Ysearch ID #8WGUQ & Ysearch ID #3HTQH. This is for the line of a Willits whose ancestor was adopted in the early 1900s. The mother was Lizzie Manus, who married first to Cleveland Kirkpatrick and then later had a child by an unknown father who was given up for adoption. The DNA of this line matches that of other Harris lineages from Group 4. Because of the DNA matching, he is thought to be the son of an Unknown Harris.


This family’s migration pattern is: Little Rock, Pulaski Co., AR > Kansas > Enid, Garfield Co., OK.

> This is a 111-marker test that originally tested with another testing company and belongs to the I-M253 haplogroup/SNP (longhand=I1 haplogroup). It matches the 111-marker modal, with one variance in marker 89.

This kit’s Ysearch user ID is 8WGUQ. Additional information on this DNA Kit and the paternal line can be found on the Ysearch user ID page for 8WGUQ

ADDITIONAL LINEAGE CHARTS

Here are additional lineage charts that are not shown on the HARRIS Y-DNA RESULTS Page. These are charted on Harris Y-DNA Results on FTDNA or Ysearch.org and/or other Projects besides the Harris Surname Project.



Lineage A.—DNA Kit #25545—Ysearch ID #S6PM2. This is for a line that goes back to William Tyner (1844-1912) of Mississippi. This kit has not actually joined the Harris Surname Y-DNA Project, but the submitter has tested with Family Tree DNA and the results are listed on Ysearch.org. This kit belongs to the Tyner DNA Project and is listed on the Tyner Results Page and Tyner Results Page with FTDNA with the same kit number.

Because the DNA matches others from Group 4, there is no doubt that the ancestors of this line trace back to Sarah Tyner, daughter of Nicholas Tyner of Isle of Wight Co., Virginia. She had 3 children by John Harris (ca. 1665-ca. 1712), son of Thomas Harris (ca. 1636-ca. 1688) of Isle of Wight Co., Virginia. The Tyner Surname DNA Project includes at least 3 kits submitted for descendants of Sarah Tyner and John Harris. Also, Ysearch lists other kits with matching DNA and a lineage going back to Sarah Tyner and John Harris. See Ysearch user ID page for S6PM2. Kit S6PM2 also includes a GEDCOM.

This family’s migration pattern is: Virginia > Isle of Wight Co., VA > Mississippi.

> This is a 12-marker test that belongs to the I-M253 haplogroup/SNP (longhand=I1 haplogroup). It matches closely with the 111-marker modal for Group 4.

She had 3 children by John Harris (ca. 1665-ca. 1712), son of Thomas Harris (ca. 1636-ca. 1688) of Isle of Wight Co., Virginia. The Tyner Surname DNA Project includes at least 3 kits submitted for descendants of Sarah Tyner and John Harris. Also, Ysearch lists other kits with matching DNA and a lineage going back to Sarah Tyner and John Harris. See Ysearch user ID page for Q7YA6.

This family’s migration pattern is: South Carolina > Jasper Co., GA > Seminole Co., FL > Hillsborough Co., FL.

> This is a 111-marker test that belongs to the I-M253 haplogroup/SNP (longhand=I1 haplogroup). It closely matches the 111-marker modal for Group 4.
