With Family Tree Maker DNA testing, it has been
concluded with a 67 marker test that my husband's Harrison line descends
from the SLGT, Isaiah Harrison of Oyster Bay, New Jersey. We have not yet
determined which son of Isaiah's he descends from. This is wonderful as we
have been unable to go back from Joseph Harrison, Sr. b. 1740. They
are sill adding new people to this line. I urge you to contribute to the
Family Tree Maker DNA projects. They are so informative.

This site is dedicated to my
family and helping others find lost family members or ancestors. I love
genealogy and have tried to trace my ancestors as well as my husbands ancestors back as
far as possible. Along the way there have been so many nice, kind people who have assisted,
and guided me along my path. They have shared their hard work with me and it
has made my work a
little less time consuming and easier. I want to return their kindness and share my
family information with anyone
that is researching these surnames. I believe this is the way genealogy research
should be viewed in order to preserve it for all those that will come after
The surnames I am researching include:
MORTON, CLARK, MCPHERSON, ASKEW, HATCH, WEBSTER, MURRAY, WALKER, BAIRD, DAY,
WILSON, BIVENS, AND SHARPE, North Carolina. My husband's line is: HARRISON, BENTLEY,
BENNINGFIELD, SINCLAIR, STCLAIR, DOUGLAS, PHILLIPS, GREEN, AND ATCHLEY,
North Carolina, Tennessee, and Kentucky. There are many
others linked to these surnames as you will see as I add more pages to this
Any help that anyone can offer is always much appreciated. I will
gladly correct mistakes on my pages with sufficient proof and will add
pertinent information when offered.
all of us there is a hunger, marrow deep, to know our heritage - to know who
we are and where we came from. Without this enriching knowledge, there is a
hollow yearning. No matter what our attainments in life, there is still a
vacuum, an emptiness, and the most disquieting loneliness.
This quote by George Moore is one of my favorites
Forefathers had civilization inside themselves,
the wild outside.
WE live in the civilization they created, but within us the wilderness still lingers.
What they dreamed, we live,
What they lived, we dream."
