HARRIS DNA—GROUP 8

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, 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 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.

Several of the lines in this group seem to trace back to Captain Thomas Harris (ca. 1586-1658) of Jamestown, Virginia. There is also one line that was supposed to go back to him, but the DNA does not match. This means: 1) an adoption occurred, 2) someone in the line is not a biological father, 3) the traditional lineage is incorrect, or 4) an error in documenting the DNA markers has taken place. The one Unknown line that is supposed to connect, but the DNA does not match is shown in two kits that have tested as Kit #9532 and Kit #68034 in Group 23.

This group belongs to the I-M253 haplogroup/SNP (longhand=I1 haplogroup). Kit #42469 belongs to the more refined I1a haplogroup. Here are lineage charts (supported by DNA) that fall into Group 8 of the Harris Y-DNA Results. Several of these lines connect back to a grandson of Capt. Thomas Harris, who is William Harris (ca. 1672-ca. 1743) who married Mary [Giles?]. 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. It may be of interest that some of these families use the Harris spelling and others spell the name as Harriss.

The modal listing of Group 8 up to 111 markers is listed on the HARRIS Y-DNA RESULTS Page.

In order to better compare matches in Group 8, the modal listing has also been posted on Ysearch with a user ID of CREKG. To view the modal listing go to the Ysearch user ID page for CREKG

This modal listing has also been posted at Ancestry.com on its DNA site. For those in Group 8 who have tested (or posted their results for free) with Ancestry.com, you should find a match with Group8Modal 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.

To assist in research and discussion, a special e-mail list for members of Group 8 has 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.

HARRIS DNA GROUP 8 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 8, 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. With each new update, the order of kits listed may change.


Lineage #1.—DNA Kit #N103064. This is for the line of Kenneth Campbell Harris (1964-2011) of Grundy Co., TN. The lineage has not been reported.

This family’s migration pattern is: Christian Co., KY > Grundy Co., TN.

This is a 12-marker test that belongs to the I-M253 haplogroup/SNP (longhand=I1 haplogroup). It matches the 111-marker modal for Group 8 with one variation in marker 1.

The kit submitter has not supplied a lineage. A few more details from other sources are added below:

Lineage #2.—DNA Kit #174415—Ysearch ID #FG8H9. This is the line of Benjamin Harris (1822-aft. 1900) of Tennessee and Texas (Generation #4). He is the son of Edward Garrett Harriss and Polly Morris, which means this lineage goes back to Edward Johnson Harriss (1769-1868) of Perry County, Illinois and on back Edward Harriss who married a "Widow" Gilliam and then to Betsy Braddock. See also Lineage #25865 for Braddock Harris, which ties in to this family. With the names of Gilliam in this family, there could be a close connection to Lineages #33263 and #35835 who also married into the Gilliam family.

This family line has been researched by Mrs. Marie Harris Key and published in her book, The Edward Harris Family: Its Lineage and Traditions (1963). Edward "Ned" Harris (1704-1780) is very likely a descendant of Capt. Thomas Harris as with others listed in Group 8. However, a big question has arisen because this same Edward Harris who married a "Widow" Gilliam and to Betsy Braddock is also reported by some instead to have married a "Miss" Minyard and a Sarah Gilliam (See Lineage Group 30-#25394); however, the DNA samples tested do not match. Apparently someone has gotten these two families confused. More research needs to be done.

This family’s migration pattern is: New Kent Co., VA > Charlotte Co., VA > Laurens District, SC > Bedford Co., TN > Perry Co., IL > Tennessee > Hopkins Co., TX.

This kit’s Ysearch user ID is FG8H9. Additional information on this DNA kit and the paternal line can be found on the Ysearch user ID page for FG8H9

This is a 67-marker test that belongs to the I-M253 haplogroup/SNP (longhand=I1 haplogroup). It closely matches the 111-marker modal for Group 8 with variants in markers 1, 33, 34, and 35. The kit submitter has not supplied a lineage. A few more details from other sources are added below:

There is a Carrol Harris, age 27, living in Benjamin's household in the 1860 Hopkins County, TX Census, 
Beat 1, page 133A. He could be a brother. This Carrol could be the son of Edward Garrett Harris and Polly 
Morris, John Carroll Harris, born in 1833, who married Braddock Gilliam's daughter Martha A. Gilliam. 
The Gilliams are listed on the next page of the 1860 census (134B), and Martha is listed as Martha Harris in 
Mahalia Gillum's household in the 1870 Hopkins County, TX Census, Precinct 3, page 114A, with her 
children Mahala, age 4; Delia, age 3; and James age 2. 

According to the 1900 census Benjamin and Irene (Arena) were married 49 years (about 1850/1851). This 
would make Nancy his daughter from an earlier marriage if she was, in fact, his daughter. In 1850 De Soto 
Parish, LA., there is a Benjamin Harris, age 30, who appears to be a single father with his daughter 
Josephine,age 6, listed right after the household of a Mary Harris where a Carrol Harris,age 17, is living. 
This matches the Carrol, age 27, living with Benjamin and Arena in 1860 Hopkins County,TX. It is said 
that Edward Garrett Harris moved to Louisiana where he died. It is said that after he died, his wife and 
children went to Texas where she died. There are also several other related families in western Louisiana in 
1850 that ended up in 1860 Hopkins County, TX.

Lineage #3.—DNA Kit #363986. This is for an unknown line out of New York. The lineage is unknown because of an adoption. The earliest known ancestor was part of the foster care system in New York and the biological parents are not completely known. The information supplied says that the mother was a Frances Elizabeth Crowley who was married at one time to aThomas Melvin Clanton. However the father of the child in this lineage seems to have been a Harris because the DNA matches Harris Group 8.

This family’s migration pattern is: New York.

This is a 25-marker test that belongs to the I-M253 haplogroup/SNP (longhand=I1 haplogroup). It matches the 111-marker modal for Group 8 with one variance in marker 12.

The kit submitter has not supplied a lineage. A few more details from other sources are added below:

Lineage #4.—DNA Kit #24718—Ysearch ID #36TMQ. This is for the line of Samuel F. Harris (ca. 1805-1867) (Generation #7), son of Graves Harriss (ca. 1760-1826) (Generation #6), son of William Harris (ca. 1730- ca. 1798) (Generation #5). There is an unproven link between Generations 5 and 6. This line is reported to connect back to William Harris who married Mary Giles (Generation #3) and on back to Capt. Thomas Harris (Generation #1).

This family’s migration pattern is: Henrico Co., VA > Hanover Co., VA > Prince Edward Co., VA > Morgan Co., GA > Columbia Co., AR > Union Co., AR.

This kit’s Ysearch user ID is 36TMQ. Additional information on this DNA kit and the paternal line can be found on the Ysearch user ID page for 36TMQ

This is a 67 marker test that belongs to the I-M253 haplogroup/SNP (longhand=I1 haplogroup). It matches the 111-marker modal for Group 8, except for variances in markers 12 and 35. The lineage supplied by the DNA Kit submitter at http://www.harrisdna.org/info/24718.html can be found here:

Lineage #5.—DNA Kit #41484—Ysearch ID #ERAJV. This is for the line of John W. Whorton (ca. 1805-ca. 1859) of Arkansas. The lineage has not been reported. Although this is a different surname than Harris, the DNA markers for this kit match very closely with others of Group 8. It is possible there is a Harris paternity in this family somewhere in the past. See also Kit #76723 going back to Michael Wharton.

This family’s migration pattern is: Georgia > Arkansas > Tennessee.

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

This is a 67-marker test that belongs to the I-M253 haplogroup/SNP (longhand=I1 haplogroup). It matches the 111-marker modal for Group 8, with one variation in marker 12.

Lineage #8.—DNA Kit #204818—Ysearch ID #RTV58. This is for the line of Roger D. Tedford (1897-1987) of Wood County, Texas. The submitter for Kit #204818 is the uncle of the submitter for Kit #18267. Although this is a different surname than Harris, the DNA markers for this kit match very closely with others of Group 8. A few of the markers for all of Group 8 show some rare values that deviate from the normal I1 population, and the Roger D. Tedford family matches with the Harris DNA. It has been shown that the DNA of Roger’s male descendants do not match the DNA of a male descendant of his brother Roscoe Tedford (whose DNA matches with other Tedfords—See Kit ##252151 in the unmatched kits), it is believed that Roger was a Harris who was adopted into the family or else a non-parental event happened.

This family’s migration pattern is: Rockbridge Co., VA > Blount Co., TN > Lincoln Co., TN > McNairy Co., TN > Titus Co., TX > Aransas Co., TX > Franklin Co., TX > Wood Co., TX.

This kit’s Ysearch user ID is RTV58. Additional information on this DNA kit and the paternal line can be found on the Ysearch user ID page for RTV58

In addition to Y-DNA testing, this kit did a Family Finder test.

This is a 12-marker test that belongs to the I-M253 haplogroup/SNP (longhand=I1 haplogroup). It matches the 111-marker modal for Group 8, with no variations as far as has been tested.

Lineage #14.—DNA Kit #43884.—Ysearch ID #RZPW6. This is the line of Edward Harriss (1704-1780) of New Kent Co., VA (Generation #4).

Reportedly he married a "Widow" Gilliam and then to Betsy Braddock. See also Lineage 8-#25865 for Braddock Harris, which ties in to this family. With the names of Gilliam in this family, there could be a close connection to Lineages 8-#35835 and 8-#33263 who also married into the Gilliam family.

This family line has been researched by Mrs. Marie Harris Key and published in her book, The Edward Harris Family: Its Lineage and Traditions (1963). Edward "Ned" Harris (1704-1780) is very likely a descendant of Capt. Thomas Harris as with others listed in Group 8. However, a big question has arisen because this same Edward Harris who married a "Widow" Gilliam and to Betsy Braddock is also reported by some instead to have married a "Miss" Minyard and a Sarah Gilliam (See Lineage Group 30-#25394); however, the DNA samples tested do not match. Apparently someone has gotten these two families confused. More research needs to be done.

This family’s migration pattern is: New Kent Co., VA > Charlotte Co., VA > Laurens District, SC > Perry Co., IL.

This kit’s Ysearch user ID is RZPW6. Additional information on this DNA kit and the paternal line can be found on the Ysearch user ID page for RZPW6

This is a 25-marker test that belongs to the I-M253 haplogroup/SNP (longhand=I1 haplogroup). It matches the 111-marker modal for Group 8, with no variations. The lineage supplied by the DNA Kit submitter at http://www.harrisdna.org/info/43884.html can be found here:

Lineage #16.—DNA Kit #76723—Ysearch ID # BR3TA. This is for the line of Michael Wharton (1831-????) of Little Rock, Pulaski Co., Arkansas. The lineage has not been reported. The earliest paternal ancestor at FTDNA is Jeptha Whorton md Frances Harris Nicholson. The earliest paternal ancestor listed at Ysearch is Michael Wharton, b. 1831 from Little Rock, Arkansas.

Although this is a different surname than Harris, the DNA markers for this kit match very closely with others of Group 8. A few of the markers for all of Group 8 show some rare values that deviate from the normal I1 population, and the Michael Wharton family matches with the Harris DNA. It is possible there is a Harris paternity in this family somewhere in the past.

Lineage #18.—DNA Kit #25865—Ysearch ID #2Q3DT. This is the line of Braddock Harriss (ca. 1760-aft. 1850) (Generation #2). Reportedly he is the son of Edward "Ned" Harriss (1704-1780) who married a "Widow" Gilliam and then to Betsy Braddock. See also Lineage 8-#43884 for Edward "Ned" Harriss (1704-1780), which is this same family. With the names of Gilliam in this family, there could be a close connection to Lineages 8-#35835 and 8-#33263 who also married into the Gilliam family.

This family line has been researched by Mrs. Marie Harris Key and published in her book, The Edward Harris Family: Its Lineage and Traditions (1963). Edward "Ned" Harris (1704-1780) is very likely a descendant of Capt. Thomas Harris as with others listed in Group 8. However, a big question has arisen because this same Edward Harris who married a "Widow" Gilliam and to Betsy Braddock is also reported by some instead to have married a "Miss" Minyard and a Sarah Gilliam (See Lineage Group 30-#25394); however, the DNA samples tested do not match. Apparently someone has gotten these two families confused. More research needs to be done.

This family’s migration pattern is: New Kent Co., VA > Wilkes Co., NC > Laurens Co., SC > Franklin Co., GA > Heard Co., GA > Chambers Co., AL > McMinn Co., TN > Dale Co., AL > Orange Co., FL.

This kit’s Ysearch user ID is 2Q3DT. Additional information on this DNA kit and the paternal line can be found on the Ysearch user ID page for 2Q3DT

Lineage #24.—DNA Kit # 18267. This is for the line of Roger D. Tedford (1897-1987) of Wood County, Texas. The submitter for Kit #18267 is the nephew of the submitter for Kit #204818. Although this is a different surname than Harris, the DNA markers for this kit match very closely with others of Group 8. A few of the markers for all of Group 8 show some rare values that deviate from the normal I1 population, and the Roger D. Tedford family matches with the Harris DNA. It has been shown that the DNA of Roger’s male descendants do not match the DNA of a male descendant of his brother Roscoe Tedford (whose DNA matches with other Tedfords—See Kit ##252151 in the unmatched kits), it is believed that Roger was a Harris who was adopted into the family or else a non-parental event happened.

This family’s migration pattern is: Rockbridge Co., VA > Blount Co., TN > Lincoln Co., TN > McNairy Co., TN > Titus Co., TX > Aransas Co., TX > Franklin Co., TX > Wood Co., TX.

This is a 67-marker test that belongs to the I-M253 haplogroup/SNP (longhand=I1 haplogroup). It matches the 111-marker modal for Group 8, with variations in markers 33 and 59.

Lineage #26.—DNA Kit #254046—Ysearch ID #CNZ67. This is the line of John Allen Sexton (1853-1925) of Knox Co., Tennessee and Jackson Co., Arkansas.

Family tradition says that he was born in 1852, and a brother, Francis Marion Sexton, was born in 1853. John Allen Sexton is reported to have been orphaned at about age 8 in Fulton or Hickman Co., Kentucky. The story goes that an aunt and uncle took them in. They were treated badly, and both boys ran away. By 1870, Francis Marion Sexton, 18, was living in an inn in Phelps County, MO. John Allen Sexton was picked up by a Francis M Claxton family.  In 1870, he is in their household in Howell Co., MO, age 17. He later moved to Arkansas with Francis Marion "Frank" and Ruth Claxton. Parents' names of John Allen Sexton and Francis Marion Sexton are unknown. Francis Marion “Frank” Sexton later moved to Guadalupe Co., Texas. Census records show their parents were born in Tennessee (but was this their biological parents or adoptive parents??). Also in the 1850 Census of Pulaski Co., Missouri there is a Harvy Sexton (age 34, b. TN), wife Adaline (age 24, b. TN) and daughter Eliza (age 1, b. MO) who possibly could be the parents (or adoptive parents) of John Allen Sexton. This is only speculation. The DNA matches closely with Harris Group 8.

This family’s migration pattern is: Knox Co., TN > Oregon Co., MO > Jackson Co., AR > Crawford Co., MI.

This kit’s Ysearch user ID is CNZ67. Additional information on this DNA kit and the paternal line can be found on the Ysearch user ID page for CNZ67.
p> 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 8, with variations in markers 34 and 35.

Lineage #30.—DNA Kit # 255727—Ysearch ID #SFBPU. This is for the line of Miniard Harris Gipson (ca. 1790-Unknown) of North Carolina. He is reported to be the son of William Uriah Gibson (ca. 1760-Unknown) of North Carolina; however since the Y-DNA matches Harris, it is likely that his biological father was actually a Harris.

This family’s migration pattern is: North Carolina > Surry Co., NC > Burke Co., NC > Gilmer Co., GA.

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

Lineage #31.—DNA Kit #299572—Ysearch ID #3E4MQ. This is for another kit that goes back to John Allen Sexton (1853-1925) of Knox Co., Tennessee and Jackson Co., Arkansas.

This kit submitter is a first cousin of the submitter for Kit #254046.

Family tradition says that he was born in 1852, and a brother, Francis Marion Sexton, was born in 1853. John Allen Sexton is reported to have been orphaned at about age 8 in Fulton or Hickman Co., Kentucky. The story goes that an aunt and uncle took them in. They were treated badly, and both boys ran away. By 1870, Francis Marion Sexton, 18, was living in an inn in Phelps County, MO. John Allen Sexton was picked up by a Francis M Claxton family.  In 1870, he is in their household in Howell Co., MO, age 17. He later moved to Arkansas with Francis Marion "Frank" and Ruth Claxton. Parents' names of John Allen Sexton and Francis Marion Sexton are unknown. Francis Marion “Frank” Sexton later moved to Guadalupe Co., Texas. Census records show their parents were born in Tennessee (but was this their biological parents or adoptive parents??). Also in the 1850 Census of Pulaski Co., Missouri there is a Harvy Sexton (age 34, b. TN), wife Adaline (age 24, b. TN) and daughter Eliza (age 1, b. MO) who possibly could be the parents (or adoptive parents) of John Allen Sexton. This is only speculation. The DNA matches closely with Harris Group 8.

This family’s migration pattern is: Knox Co., TN > Oregon Co., MO > Jackson Co., AR > Crawford Co., MI.

This kit’s Ysearch user ID is 3E4MQ. Additional information on this DNA kit and the paternal line can be found on the Ysearch user ID page for 3E4MQ.
p> 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 8, with no variations as far as it has been tested.

Lineage #32.—DNA Kit #56858.—Ysearch ID #KMSUK. This is the line of George Harris (ca. 1750-1824) (Generation #6) of Hanover Co., Virginia and Warren Co., Kentucky. His parentage is unknown, but the DNA matches with other descendants of Capt. Thomas Harris. He is thought to be the son of William Harris of Hanover County, Virginia who married an Elizabeth? or Mary? Graves? This is also the same line as DNA Kit #9532 and #68034 which both tested differently and are now listed in Group 23. More research needs to be done on this line.

This family’s migration pattern is: Hanover Co., VA > Louisa Co., VA > Warren Co., KY > Johnson Co., MO > Lafayette Co., MO > Hill Co., TX > Tarrant Co., TX.

Lineage #33.—DNA Kit #40722—Ysearch ID #356Z8. This is for the line of Erasmus Johnson (1821-1889) (Generation #2) of Miller Grove, Hopkins Co., Texas. He is possibly the son of Henry Johnson and Sally Green of North Carolina. Although this is a different surname than Harris, the DNA markers for this kit match very closely with others of Group 8. A few of the markers for all of Group 8 show some rare values that deviate from the normal I1a population, and the Erasmus Johnson family matches with the Harris DNA. Also, this Johnson family migrated in some of the same areas as other Harrises of Group 8. It is possible there is a Harris paternity in this family somewhere in the past.

This family’s migration pattern is: North Carolina > Claiborne Parish, LA > Hopkins Co., TX > Dallas Co., TX.

This kit’s Ysearch user ID is 356Z8. Additional information on this DNA kit and the paternal line can be found on the Ysearch user ID page for 356Z8.
p>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 8, with no variations.

Lineage #34.—DNA Kit #91706—Ysearch ID #WYG7X. This is the line of Edward “Ned” Harris (ca. 1804-ca. 1869) of Burke Co., North Carolina and Hempstead Co., Arkansas (Generation #7).

He is the great-grandson of Edward Harriss (1704-1780) of New Kent Co., VA (Generation #4) who reportedly married a "Widow" Gilliam and then to Betsy Braddock. See also Lineage 8-#25865 for Braddock Harris, which ties in to this family. With the names of Gilliam in this family, there could be a close connection to Lineages 8-#35835 and 8-#33263 who also married into the Gilliam family.

This family line has been researched by Mrs. Marie Harris Key and published in her book, The Edward Harris Family: Its Lineage and Traditions (1963). Edward "Ned" Harris (1704-1780) is very likely a descendant of Capt. Thomas Harris as with others listed in Group 8. However, a big question has arisen because this same Edward Harris who married a "Widow" Gilliam and to Betsy Braddock is also reported by some instead to have married a "Miss" Minyard and a Sarah Gilliam (See Lineage Group 30-#25394); however, the DNA samples tested do not match. Apparently someone has gotten these two families confused. More research needs to be done.

This family’s migration pattern is: New Kent Co., VA > Charlotte Co., VA > Laurens District, SC > Bedford Co., TN > Perry Co., IL.

This kit’s Ysearch user ID is WYG7X. Additional information on this DNA kit and the paternal line can be found on the Ysearch user ID page for WYG7X

This is a 25-marker test that belongs to the I-M253 haplogroup/SNP (longhand=I1 haplogroup). It matches the 111-marker modal for Group 8, with one variation at marker 33. The lineage supplied by the DNA Kit submitter at http://www.harrisdna.org/info/91706.html can be found here:

Lineage #35.—DNA Kit #184073. This is for Williamson Harris (1789-1871) of Tishomingo Co., Mississippi, son of Ralph Harris (1764-1815). Ralph is a brother of George Harriss (ca. 1750-1824) and Graves Harriss (ca. 1760-1826).

This family’s migration pattern is: Henrico Co., VA > New Kent Co., VA > Hanover Co., VA > Prince Edward Co., VA > Goochland Co., VA > Morgan Co., GA > Tishomingo Co., MS > Alcorn Co., MS.

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 8 with no variances. The kit submitter has not supplied a lineage. A few more details from other sources are added below:

Lineage #36.—DNA Kit #158304. This is the line of John Harris (1738-1821) of Oglethorpe County, Georgia.

The parentage of John Harris is unknown. The homestead of his son, William Harris, in Walton County, Georgia, is a national landmark. This John Harris has been speculated to be a son of Thomas Harris/Elizabeth Lindsey, but John Harris/Mary Diuguid fits better as a son of Thomas Harris/Elizabeth Lindsey. He possibly could be a son of John Harris/Mary Tinsley. The DNA seems to prove this true.

This family’s migration pattern is: Orange Co., VA > Oglethorpe Co., GA > Walton Co., GA.

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 8 with no variances. The kit submitter has not supplied a lineage. A few more details from other sources are added below:

Lineage #37.—DNA Kit #155089—Ysearch ID #MNZNV. This is the line of Sherrod Harris (d. 1805) of Anson County, North Carolina.

.

The parentage of Sherrod Harris is uncertain. He lived close to other Harris families (some also named Sherrod/Sherwood), but some of these other families have tested into Group 6 of the Harris DNA study.

Gregg Bonner lists the Sherwood Harris who married Elizabeth Williams as the son of Sherwood Harris who married Jemima Hudspeth. This would make this line be descended from the Robert Harris of the Forks who married Mary Claiborne Rice (DNA Group 6), which can’t be correct. Jesse Macon Lawrence lists this Sherwood Harris who married Elizabeth Williams as the son of William Harris who married Judith Hudson. That would make this line be descended from William Harris who married Mary Giles (DNA Group 8).

More research needs to be done to verify close family associations and the lineage beyond Sherrod Harris (d. 1805).

This family’s migration pattern is: Albemarle Co., VA > Goochland Co., VA > Anson Co., NC > Richmond Co., NC > Franklin Co., TN > Warren Co., MO > Rutherford Co., TN > Davidson Co., TN.

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

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 8 with no variances. The lineage supplied by the DNA Kit can be found here:

Lineage #38.—DNA Kit #14840.—Ysearch ID #DRKRT. This is for a David Harris, b. ca. 1730 (reportedly in Kent, England), d. 1809. It is interesting that this family lived in Hanover Co., VA like the other Harrises. Son William Harris married into the Snead family, which is of interest (see Unmatched Kit #34767), and there are descendants who carry Giles, Tinsley, Sherod, etc. in their names. Since the DNA matches, some have wondered if this family’s tradition might be incorrect. The lineage before David Harris has been unknown, but the DNA matches with other descendants of Capt. Thomas Harris. Recently, because of the Family Finder testing (which indicates close relationships), it has been determined that the lineage must go back to Capt. Thomas Harris rather than some line in England. The Family Finder test was done for Kit #109844 which ties into this lineage.

This family’s migration pattern is: Virginia > Hanover Co., VA > Shelby Co., KY > Henry Co., KY > Fayette Co., KY.

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

Lineage #44.—DNA Kit #26910—Ysearch ID #QJU3R. This is for the line of William Harris, Jr. (ca. 1752-1799) (Generation #6). The two William Harrises in generations 5 and 6 are not proven as children of the previous generations, but this is believed to be the descent. From William Harris who married Judith Hudson (Generation #4) the line goes back to William Harris who married Mary Giles (Generation #3) and on to Capt. Thomas Harris (Generation #1).

This family’s migration pattern is: Henrico Co., VA > Hanover Co., VA > Lunenberg Co., VA > Charlotte Co., VA > Pendleton District, SC > Laurens Co., SC > Abbeville District, SC > Gwinnett Co., GA > Cobb Co., GA > Paulding Co., GA > Fulton Co., GA.

This kit’s Ysearch user ID is QJU3R. Additional information on this DNA kit and the paternal line can be found on the Ysearch user ID page for QJU3R.

Lineage #45.—DNA Kit #176622—Ysearch ID #H2CCC. This is the line of Edward Harriss (1704-1780) of New Kent Co., VA (Generation #4).

He reportedly married a "Widow" Gilliam and then to Betsy Braddock. See also Lineage 8-#25865 for Braddock Harris, which ties in to this family. With the names of Gilliam in this family, there could be a close connection to Lineages 8-#35835 and 8-#33263 who also married into the Gilliam family.

This family line has been researched by Mrs. Marie Harris Key and published in her book, The Edward Harris Family: Its Lineage and Traditions (1963). Edward "Ned" Harris (1704-1780) is very likely a descendant of Capt. Thomas Harris as with others listed in Group 8. However, a big question has arisen because this same Edward Harris who married a "Widow" Gilliam and to Betsy Braddock is also reported by some instead to have married a "Miss" Minyard and a Sarah Gilliam (See Lineage Group 30-#25394); however, the DNA samples tested do not match. Apparently someone has gotten these two families confused. More research needs to be done.

This family’s migration pattern is: New Kent Co., VA > Charlotte Co., VA > Lunenberg Co., VA > McDowell Co., NC > Caldwell Co., NC.

This kit’s Ysearch user ID is H2CCC. Additional information on this DNA kit and the paternal line can be found on the Ysearch user ID page for H2CCC

This is a 111-marker test that belongs to the I-M253 haplogroup/SNP (longhand=I1 haplogroup). It matches the 111-marker modal for Group 8, except for variances at markers 58, 60, 94, and 102. The lineage supplied by the DNA Kit submitter can be found here:

Lineage #49.—DNA Kit #147041—Ysearch ID #QF5M8. This is for the line of Harrison Harris (ca. 1725-Bef. 1795) (Generation #5). The line reportedly goes back to William Harris who married Mary Giles (Generation #3) and on to Capt. Thomas Harris (Generation #1); however, the parentage of Harrison is not for certain. He has been placed as a son of David Harris and wife Jane [Harrison?] because of his age and locality and the fact that Jane’s maiden name is reported to be Harrison.

This family’s migration pattern is: Henrico Co., VA > Hanover Co., VA > Goochland Co., VA > Woodford Co., KY > Boone Co., MO > Henderson Co., TX > Harris Co., TX.

This kit’s Ysearch user ID is QF5M8. Additional information on this DNA kit and the paternal line can be found on the Ysearch user ID page for QF5M8.

Lineage #51.—DNA Kit #101382—Ysearch ID #GBVN2. This is the line of Edward Harriss (1704-1780) of New Kent Co., VA (Generation #4).

Reportedly he married a "Widow" Gilliam and then to Betsy Braddock. See also Lineage 8-#25865 for Braddock Harris, which ties in to this family. With the names of Gilliam in this family, there could be a close connection to Lineages #33263 and #35835 who also married into the Gilliam family.

This family line has been researched by Mrs. Marie Harris Key and published in her book, The Edward Harris Family: Its Lineage and Traditions (1963). Edward "Ned" Harris (1704-1780) is very likely a descendant of Capt. Thomas Harris as with others listed in Group 8. However, a big question has arisen because this same Edward Harris who married a "Widow" Gilliam and to Betsy Braddock is also reported by some instead to have married a "Miss" Minyard and a Sarah Gilliam (See Lineage Group 30-#25394); however, the DNA samples tested do not match. Apparently someone has gotten these two families confused. More research needs to be done.

This family’s migration pattern is: New Kent Co., VA > Charlotte Co., VA > Laurens District, SC > Bedford Co., TN > Perry Co., IL.

This kit’s Ysearch user ID is GBVN2. Additional information on this DNA kit and the paternal line can be found on the Ysearch user ID page for GBVN2

Lineage #54.—DNA Kit #N76752—Ysearch ID #WSCRD. This is for the line of Hudson P. Harris (1831-1901) of Alabama and Arkansas. The lineage prior to Hudson P. Harris (Generation #4) is unproven. He is living with his brother, Charles F. Harris, in the 1850 Census in Pickens Co., AL. He is believed to be the son of Sherod W. Harris (d. 1875), who also lived in Pickens County, Alabama.

This family’s migration pattern is: Alabama > Greene Co., AL > Pickens Co, AL > De Soto Parish, LA > Lonoke Co., AR.

This kit’s Ysearch user ID is WSCRD. Additional information on this DNA kit and the paternal line can be found on the Ysearch user ID page for WSCRD.
p> In addition to Y-DNA testing, this kit did a Family Finder test. This is a 111-marker test that belongs to the I1da haplogroup. It matches the 111-marker modal for Group 8, with one variation in marker 30.

Lineage #62.—DNA Kit #150014—Ysearch ID #JVJYY. This is for the line of William E. Johnson (ca. 1782- Bet. 1844 - 1848) (Generation #3) of Georgetown District, South Carolina. He is reported to be the son of Sherrod Johnson and grandson of Samuel Johnson. Although this is a different surname than Harris, the DNA markers for this kit match very closely with others of Group 8. A few of the markers for all of Group 8 show some rare values that deviate from the normal I1 population, and the William E. Johnson family matches with the Harris DNA. It is possible there is a Harris paternity in this family somewhere in the past.

This family’s migration pattern is: Georgetown District, SC > Marion District, SC > Henderson Co., TN > Hot Spring Co., AR > Dallas Co., AR.

This kit’s Ysearch user ID is JVJYY. Additional information on this DNA kit and the paternal line can be found on the Ysearch user ID page for JVJYY.
p>This is a 111-marker test that belongs to the I1d1 haplogroup. It matches the 111-marker modal for Group 8, with variations in markers 4, 23, 24 and 34.

Lineage #65.—DNA Kit #UNK. This is the line of Edward Harriss (1704-1780) of New Kent Co., VA (Generation #4).

The kit number for this submitter is unknown. He tested with Family Tree DNA, but has not joined the Harris Surname Project. His results show up as matches to others in Group 8 on the FTDNA website.

Reportedly Edward Harriss married a "Widow" Gilliam and then to Betsy Braddock. See also Lineage 8-#25865 for Braddock Harris, which ties in to this family. With the names of Gilliam in this family, there could be a close connection to Lineages 8-#35835 and 8-#33263 who also married into the Gilliam family.

This family line has been researched by Mrs. Marie Harris Key and published in her book, The Edward Harris Family: Its Lineage and Traditions (1963). Edward "Ned" Harris (1704-1780) is very likely a descendant of Capt. Thomas Harris as with others listed in Group 8. However, a big question has arisen because this same Edward Harris who married a "Widow" Gilliam and to Betsy Braddock is also reported by some instead to have married a "Miss" Minyard and a Sarah Gilliam (See Lineage Group 30-#25394); however, the DNA samples tested do not match. Apparently someone has gotten these two families confused. More research needs to be done.

This family’s migration pattern is: New Kent Co., VA > Charlotte Co., VA > Laurens District, SC > Bedford Co., TN > Perry Co., IL > Franklin Co., IL.

This is a 67-marker test that belongs to the I-M253 haplogroup/SNP (longhand=I1 haplogroup). It closely matches the 111-marker modal for Group 8. The kit submitter has not supplied a lineage. A few more details from other sources are added below:

Here are lineages for those that have submitted DNA for the Family Finder test and are known to link up with Group 8. Many thanks to Pat Mason Harris, Jerry Carter, Mitch Harris, and others who have helped to map out these connections. A few are Harris males who have taken the Y-DNA testing and their lineage appears above with the other Y-DNA tests. Others listed here are Harris descendants (male or female) who connect up with the Harris line through female connections. With the Family Finder test, the Harris connection does not always follow the male line. But the lineages here do seem to match up with others in Group 8. The kit numbers are shown for those who have joined the Harris Surname Project, and I have listed these in chronological order according to kit number. If they have not actually joined the Harris Surname Project, but there is still a known connection, then they are grouped at the end with an unknown Family Finder number.


Family Finder Lineage #1.—DNA Kit #8991FF. This is for the line of Giles Harris (1766-1844) who descends from Capt. Thomas Harris (ca. 1586-1658). This kit submitted testing for Y-DNA as well as the Family Finder test. See complete information above.

Family Finder shows a match with Kit #109844FF predicted as 4th Cousin. The actual relationship goes back 8 generations and turns out to be double 4th cousins twice removed. The kinship has been traced below:

1. John Harris md. Mary Tinsley
2. David Harris md. Dorothy Houndslow     Elizabeth Harris md. Lewis Harris (sibling & 1st cousin)
3. Jonathan Harris md. Marthia I. Smith   Giles Harris md. Elizabeth Thurman (double 1st cousins)
4. Sherod Harris md. Martha Dorcas Adams  William Austin Harris md. Cynthia Strickland (double 2nd cousins)
5. Tyrus Harris md. Mary C. McNaughton    Austin Dabney Harris md. Rebecca Amaretta Miller (double 3rd cousins)
6. [Participant #109844FF] Harris         Claude Milner Harris md. Daisy Dean Wilson (double 4th cousins)
7.                                        Harris md. Porter (double 4th cousins once removed)
8.                                        [Participant #8991FF] Harris (double 4th cousins twice removed)


Family Finder Lineage #2.—DNA Kit #24718FF. This is for the line of Samuel F. Harris (ca. 1805-1867) who descends from Capt. Thomas Harris (ca. 1586-1658). This kit submitted testing for Y-DNA as well as the Family Finder test. See complete information above.


Family Finder Lineage #3.—DNA Kit #58987FF. This is for the line of John Harris (ca. 1747-ca. 1822) who descends from Capt. Thomas Harris (ca. 1586-1658). This kit submitted testing for Y-DNA as well as the Family Finder test. See complete information above.


Family Finder Lineage #4.—DNA Kit #109844FF. This is for a David Harris (ca. 1730-1809) of Hanover Co., Virginia. This kit submitted testing for Y-DNA as well as the Family Finder test. See complete information above.
Family Finder shows a match with Kit #8991FF predicted as 4th Cousin. The actual relationship goes back 8 generations and turns out to be double 4th cousins twice removed. (See Family Finder listing with Kit #8991.)


Family Finder Lineage #5.—DNA Kit #188857FF. This is the line of Edward Harriss (1704-1780) of New Kent Co., VA (Generation #4).

Reportedly he married a "Widow" Gilliam and then to Betsy Braddock. See also Lineage 8-#25865 for Braddock Harris, which ties in to this family. With the names of Gilliam in this family, there could be a close connection to Lineages 8-#35835 and 8-#33263 who also married into the Gilliam family.

This family line has been researched by Mrs. Marie Harris Key and published in her book, The Edward Harris Family: Its Lineage and Traditions (1963). Edward "Ned" Harris (1704-1780) is very likely a descendant of Capt. Thomas Harris as with others listed in Group 8. However, a big question has arisen because this same Edward Harris who married a "Widow" Gilliam and to Betsy Braddock is also reported by some instead to have married a "Miss" Minyard and a Sarah Gilliam (See Lineage Group 30-#25394); however, the DNA samples tested do not match. Apparently someone has gotten these two families confused. More research needs to be done.

This family’s migration pattern is: New Kent Co., VA > Charlotte Co., VA > Lunenberg Co., VA > Burke Co., NC > Gwinnett Co., GA > Wood Co., TX > Parker Co., TX > Greer Co., OK > Oklahoma Co., OK > Wayne Co., MI.

This is a Family Finder test with DNA that closely matches others in Group 8, so the Harris connection does not always follow the male line. But the lineage does match up with others in Group 8. The kit submitter is a female, so Y-DNA testing has not been done. The kit submitter has not supplied a lineage. A few details from other sources are added below:

Family Finder Lineage #6.—DNA Kit #192311FF. This is the line of Sherrod Harris (ca. 1733-1805) of Anson Co., NC.

The parentage of Sherrod Harris is uncertain. He lived close to other Harris families (some also named Sherrod/Sherwood), but some of these other families have tested into Group 6 of the Harris DNA study.

Gregg Bonner lists the Sherwood Harris who married Elizabeth Williams as the son of Sherwood Harris who married Jemima Hudspeth. This would make this line be descended from the Robert Harris of the Forks who married Mary Claiborne Rice (DNA Group 6), which can’t be correct. Jesse Macon Lawrence lists this Sherwood Harris who married Elizabeth Williams as the son of William Harris who married Judith Hudson. That would make this line be descended from William Harris who married Mary Giles (DNA Group 8).

More research needs to be done to verify close family associations and the lineage beyond Sherrod Harris (d. 1805).

This is a Family Finder test with DNA that closely matches others in Group 8, so the Harris connection does not always follow the male line. But the lineage does match up with others in Group 8. This family’s migration pattern is: Albemarle Co., VA > Goochland Co., VA > Anson Co., NC > Edgecombe Co., NC > Sabine Parish, LA.

Family Finder Lineage #7.—DNA Kit #194215FF. This is for the line of Thomas Harris (ca. 1712-ca. 1784) (Generation #4).

This family’s migration pattern is: Henrico Co., VA > Hanover Co., VA > Prince Edward Co., VA > Orange Co., VA > Woodford Co., KY > Jackson Co., MO > Pulaski Co., IL > Sangamon Co., IL.

This is a Family Finder test, so the Harris connection does not always follow the male line. But the lineage seems to match up with others in Group 8.

At this time, this kit has no Family Finder matches that connect to a Harris of Group 8.

The kit submitter is a female, so Y-DNA testing has not been done. The kit submitter has not supplied a lineage. A few more details from other sources are added below:

Family Finder Lineage #8.—DNA Kit #194869FF. This is for the line of William Ashley Harris (1849-1916) (Generation #8). The kit submitter is a cousin of the Y-DNA submitter for Kit #33263. The line continues back to Capt. Thomas Harris.

This family’s migration pattern is: Henrico Co., VA > Hanover Co., VA > Prince Edward Co., VA > Marshall Co., TN > Wilson Co., TN > McNairy Co., TN > Stephens Co., OK > Tillman Co., OK > Bailey Co., TX > Dolores Co., CO.

This is a Family Finder test, so the Harris connection does not always follow the male line. But the lineage does match up with others in Group 8.

The kit submitter connects to the Harris family through a female line. The lineage supplied by the DNA Kit submitter can be found here:

1.. Captain Thomas HARRIS, b. ca. 1586 possibly Creeksea, Essex Co., England, d. 1658 Henrico Co., VA; md. 1st, Adria (Hoare?), md. 2nd, Joan ________.

2.. Major William HARRIS, b. ca. 1629 Henrico Co., VA, d. 1 Feb. 1677/1678 Henrico Co., VA (killed by Indians); md. ca. 1670 Henrico Co., VA to Alice _______, b. in Virginia, d. aft. 1696 New Kent Co., VA

Family Finder Lineage #9.—DNA Kit #N76752FF. Sherrod/Sherwood Harris (ca. 1733-1805) of Anson Co., NC. This kit submitted testing for Y-DNA as well as the Family Finder test. See complete information above.


Family Finder Lineage #10.—Unknown Family Finder Kit. This is the line of John Harris (1738-1821) of Oglethorpe County, Georgia.

The parentage of John Harris is unknown. The homestead of his son, William Harris, in Walton County, Georgia, is a national landmark. This John Harris has been speculated to be a son of Thomas Harris/Elizabeth Lindsey, but John Harris/Mary Diuguid fits better as a son of Thomas Harris/Elizabeth Lindsey. He possibly could be a son of John Harris/Mary Tinsley. The DNA seems to prove this true.

This is a Family Finder test, so the Harris connection does not always follow the male line. But the lineage seems to match up with others in Group 8. The kit has not joined the Harris DNA Project, so the kit number is not known at this time.

Family Finder shows a match with Kit #8991FF predicted as 4th Cousin and Kit #109844FF predicted as 5th Cousin - Distant Cousin. Since John Harris’s lineage is unknown, the exact relationships cannot be shown.

This family’s migration pattern is: Orange Co., VA > Oglethorpe Co., GA > Coosa Co., AL > Chilton Co., AL.

The kit submitter is a female, so Y-DNA testing has not been done. The kit submitter has not supplied a lineage. A few more details from other sources are added below:

Family Finder Lineage #11.—Unknown Family Finder Kit. This is the line of Elizabeth Harris (1698-Aft. 1770) of New Kent and Hanover Co., Virginia.

She married John Hudson (ca. 1692-1732) and is the daughter of William Harris (ca. 1672-ca, 1743) who married Mary [Giles?]. William is the grandson of Capt. Thomas Harris (ca. 1586-1658) of Jamestown, Virginia.

This is a Family Finder test, so the Harris connection does not always follow the male line. But the lineage does seem to match up with others in Group 8. The kit has not joined the Harris DNA Project, so the kit number is not known at this time.

Family Finder shows a match with Kit #8991FF predicted as 5th Cousin - Distant Cousin. The actual relationship goes back 10 generations and turns out to be double 7th cousins once removed. The kinship has been traced below:

1. William Harris md. Mary [Giles?]
2. Elizabeth Harris md. John Hudson      David Harris md. Jane [Harrison?](siblings)
3. Charles Hudson md. Susannah Patrick   Lewis Harris md. Elizabeth Harris (double 1st cousins)

Family Finder Lineage #12.—Unknown Family Finder Kit. This is the line of Edward Harris (1675-ca. 1748) of Harris Creek, Prince Edward Co., Virginia who married Unity (maiden name unknown).

This Edward Harris’s ancestors are not identified, but a male descendant with DNA Kit #118978 (See above) has been tested, and falls into Group 8.

This is a Family Finder test, so the Harris connection does not always follow the male line. But the lineage does seem to match up with others in Group 8. The kit has not joined the Harris DNA Project, so the kit number is not known at this time.

Family Finder shows a match with Kit #N76752FF predicted as 5th Cousin - Distant Cousin. The actual relationship is unknown. The lineage is shown below:
