    2. Yvonne Bowers
    3. Dear GARRISON-DNA listers, It’s been a long time since we’ve posted our DNA interests and since 2012 there has been a lot of activity on the DNA front. Since creating this list, I was fortunate enough to locate a male GARRISON descendant (my 3rd cousin) of John GARRISON (my 3ggf) and have had him tested at ftdna.com. Results have been promising. We are a match to James GARRISON (The Towboat Captain) who daughter Sallie married John’s son Robert. We are close to matching the Stafford Co. and/or Albemarle Co., Virginia GARRISONS but there were a TON of John GARRISONS in Virginia in the 1700’s. Our GARRISON haplogroup is I-M170. Are there any other Virginia GARRISONS out there? *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* Yvonne Bowers Listmom, Boardmom, Webmom <ybowers@gmail.com> GARRISON, GARRETSON, GARRISON-DNA "Most Wanted" http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~yvonne/garrison.html Yvonne's Rootsweb Resource Page http://homepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~yvonne/

    1. [GARRISON-DNA] Calling Albemarle, VA. GARRISON Descendants
    2. Yvonne Bowers
    3. Thanks to the efforts of Karen and (my cousin) Stephen, we seem to be getting closer to finding the parentage of John GARRISON. As I've posted before, my 3ggf John GARRISON (b. 1799/1800 VA/TN d. 1883 Crawford Co., MO.) m. Elizabeth THOMPSON (1811 KY. - 1868 Crawford Co, MO.) They had a son Robert who married the daughter (Sarah "Sallie") of James Herschel GARRISON (the Towboat Captain) (who married Maria SULLIVAN). Our (John) DNA is a 25 marker match with a genetic distance of 1 with a descendant of James (his son's father-in-law through Lynn Buck). So we can be sure these GARRISON family origins are the same. My cousin Stephen dug up (not literally) a GARRISON descendant who is a 33/33 match with our John sample (not on FTDNA). This "cousin" descends from Valentine (Volly) GARRISON and his 2nd wife Charlotte ROGERS through George T. GARRISON b. 11 Apr 1841, Milltown, Adair Co., KY. We've located Robert Baum who descends from Boyd GARRISON. Through Karen's efforts, we think Boyd descends from Lewis GARRISON (b. abt. 1798 Albemarle Co., VA.) who was a nephew of Volly through Jeremiah. Jeremiah had a son John b. 1801 (which looks promising) although he died in 1877 and is buried in IN. Based on an in-progress descendant chart by Trena Garrison on John GARRISON b. 1740 Stafford Co., VA., the three sample show we possibly all descend from William Henry "Billy" (b. 1744) and Duannah (Hannah) b. abt. 1747. The dates of the various Johns and James are inconclusive. Are there any GARRISON descendants from either William and Duannah or William's father, John? Please weigh in and let us know if you have had any DNA tested or would be willing to. Thanks!

    1. [GARRISON-DNA] DNA for Thanksgiving
    2. Karen
    3. When the family gets together for the holidays, it could be an excellent time to bring up DNA testing for genealogy. A person full of good food and warm memories may just be ready to help you make the plunge. Family Tree DNA offers a discounted price to members of a DNA Project. You can use the "join" feature on the project’s home page or email one of the administrators for more information. Remember, although women cannot be the donors for YDNA matching, they can sponsor a male family member such as a brother or cousin. Several family members can jointly sponsor the donor, sharing the cost. With so many different family groups in the Garrison DNA Project, you now have a greater likelihood of finding a match than when there were fewer results. My own family group has had great success with DNA testing. We were able to eliminate a lot of false connections and focus our research on true relatives.

    1. [GARRISON-DNA] DNA Bombshell
    2. Karen
    3. DNA test results have again turned our Garrison community upside down. I recently had the opportunity to arrange a DNA test for an individual who was born in Alamance Co NC and has an impeccable trail back to Jacob Garrison, son of Garret Garretson and Mary Baldwin. Alamance was formed from Orange and is where that family of early Garrisons settled. This was to be my line’s way of proving beyond doubt that our relatives descended from Garret Garretson and his first wife Elizabeth Ericson through their son John and his wife Elenor Robinson. The results of the 37 marker FTDNA test are in and the DNA of the individual who is listed under Kit # 186939 do not match our 11 matching participants in Group B of the Garrison DNA Project at Family Tree DNA and our one match who was tested by Ancestry. There is no possibility that the descendants of Elenor, Ebenezer, and Jedediah are genetically related to the descendants of Garret Garretson of New Castle Delaware who moved to Orange Co NC. The results for the descendant of Jacob Garrison of Alamance NC are a near-perfect match to several other Garrison FTDNA participants and at least one tested by Ancestry. A couple of years ago I helped a man prove he was a descendant of Henry, son of Garret Garretson and his second wife Mary Baldwin. Then DNA results were received for him and for my own third cousin. When they did not match, I assumed his line was the problem. I was wrong. He is a match to this new test whose line stayed on Stony Creek in Alamance (Orange) Co NC. The new donor is also a match to a man who has only tested 25 markers but believes he descends from a brother of the above Henry Garrison. The new donor is also a very close match to all of the descendants of James Garrison and Hester Roberts who have been tested. These results should be considered as proof that James Garrison RWS is a descendant of some member of Garret Garretson’s family. We ‘re sure he was not a son of Garret because Garret’s will lists all of his children in detail. However, the closeness of the results mean that he is a very close relative. The late Paul Edwin Powers in his book about James & Hester’s family proposed that James might have been a son of a Peter and Sarah Garrison that he found in Cecil County Maryland. I believe that Peter of Cecil County was the brother of Garret Garretson, both of them sons of Hendrik Garretson and his wife Ann, mentioned in Hendrik’s will. This Peter and Sarah Garretson are NOT the same Peter and Sarah Garrison who were found elsewhere in Maryland and later died in Antrim, Pennsylvania. That is a different, non-matching line. I would be happy to provide details to those who suspect they descend from this couple. As for our own line, we have a lot of work to do. All sightings of folks named John or Elenor in Orange County can be attributed to other individuals, not our ancestors. In fact, we no longer have any proof that Elenor’s husband was named John. We still believe that an Elenor was the mother of my ancestor Zebulon, of John who married Delilah Baker, of Shadrack of Barren County KY, and several others. Our solid proofs for our branch now only go back as far as Elenor’s appearance in the 1790 census in Greenville, SC. Elenor and most of her family moved into Franklin Co GA. Two of the DNA donors of our line, one descendant of John & Delilah, and one descendant of Zebulon & Rebekah, are a perfect 37/37 match to two of the participants who descend from Jedediah Garrison who also moved from Greenville SC into Franklin Co GA. The descendant of John & Delilah tested 67 markers and he is a perfect match on all 67 markers to descendants of Jedediah. We do know from his son’s obituary that Jedediah was in Orange Co NC but nothing was found showing that he had any contact with the descendants of Garret & Mary. Jedediah’s obituary may be the only clue we now have to the earliest origins of our family and it says he was born in what was spelled in the obituary as "Cortright" but most believe is a mis-spelling of "Carteret" County NC. We are also a close match to Calder Garrason who is a descendant of Ebenezer Garrason of Duplin County NC. Jedediah did have contact with Ebenezer in Duplin County. Calder’s ancestor also moved to Georgia, but to different counties. Just to recap what we have learned from DNA testing, the DNA of the descendants of Elenor Garrison, Jedediah Garrison, and Ebenezer Garrason all match each other but do NOT match the following who were previously attached to our line: John Garretson "Vanderhof" who died 1694 New Castle DE Hendrik Garretson who died 1721 New Castle DE Paul Garrison who first appeared in Augusta VA records in 1753, then Rowan Co NC Each of these are uniquely different lines and are also not related to each other, proven by DNA. In light of all this, I am suggesting that our Group B-Garr*sons of Delaware on Family Tree DNA’s site be changed to Garr*sons of Georgia since we cannot claim Delaware but all of us were in Georgia. That name is more unique and inclusive than some of the other possibilities. Members of our research group will continue to gather and organize proofs, working backward from our proven ancestors who were all in Georgia. Of that much we are sure. Elenor and her family and also Jedediah spent time in South Carolina prior to Georgia. Jedediah and Ebenezer can both be traced to North Carolina. Before that, we have no longer have proof. Our line of Garrisons look forward to a future filled with following more right paths than wrong ones and of sharing information with each other. I would also be happy to provide information I have gathered about the Garrisons of Orange/Alamance NC to the rightful heirs. Also I have gathered a lot of information about the Garretsons of Delaware that I am willing to share. Just send me an email telling me your suspected link to them.

    3. Update on the Missouri GARRISON front. My 3ggp John GARRISON (b. 1799/1800 VA/TN d. 1883 Crawford Co, MO.) m. Elizabeth THOMPSON (1811 KY. - 1868 Crawford Co, MO.) had a son Robert who married the daughter (Sarah "Sallie") of James Herschel GARRISON (the Towboat Captain) who married Maria SULLIVAN. Our DNA was a 12 marker match for a descendant of James (Lynn Garrison Buck's father). Lynn expanded her father's test and I just got word that our DNA is a 25 marker match with a genetic distance of 1 with James. So we can be sure our GARRISON family origins are the same. *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* Yvonne Bowers Listmom, Boardmom, Webmom GARRISON, GARRETSON "Most Wanted" http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~yvonne/garrison.html

    1. [GARRISON-DNA] John Garretson DNA news
    2. Karen
    3. The following link is to an excellent new article by Calder Garrason. http://www.garrisonscompass.com/project-news-10-JohnvdH-not-bro-HandP.html As Calder clearly outlines in the article, DNA testing has now proven John Garretson who died 1694 in New Castle DE was not a brother to Hendrik/Henry & Paul. In fact, he was not closely related. The lineage of the most recent participant was meticulously checked by Calder himself. Calder has also offered his assistance to another DNA participant who is a DNA match to the descendant of John. Because of DNA testing, they are now much closer to solving that line. Having this additional grouping means those who believe they may be descended from John will now have more likelihood of meaningful results should they choose to participate in DNA testing. It also means that those of us who are descended from Hendrik/Henry no longer need to pursue a possible link to John. Karen

    1. [GARRISON-DNA] 12 marker tests
    2. Karen
    3. I just noticed some results that show the non-value of getting just a 12 marker test. Three 37 marker kits: two of them are a perfect 37/37 match, the third one has two mutations, both in the first 12 markers. The 13-37 markers for the third participant were a perfect match to the first two participants. If that third participant had only ordered the 12 marker test, he would have assumed that he probably was not closely related to the first two, because of the two mutations. I see this as good proof that everyone needs at least the 37 marker test. Those with only 12 or 25 need to think about upgrading. Karen

    1. [GARRISON-DNA] Garrison or Garretson with Delaware connections
    2. Karen
    3. With the approaching holidays, some of the testing companies are offering DNA testing at a reduced rate. It's a good time to get involved. Our Delaware research group currently has nine participants who were tested by FTDNA and one tested by Ancestry along with quite a few researchers who are not DNA participants. Please note when going to FTDNA's homepage and typing in the surname Garrison, three surname projects will be listed for Garrison. We are part of the largest project, Garrisons' Compass, and are listed as B-Garr*son Delaware Lines. The results of our nine are publicly posted on the Garrisons' Compass YDNA results page. If you think you may have ties to Garrison or Garretson in Delaware, Orange Co NC, or Franklin Co GA we would love to hear from you. You do not have to be interested in DNA testing.

    3. Hi Yvonne, My Garrisons were from Paul Garrison, b. 1806 VA, and Taney and Barry Co., MO. I have been looking for a descendant to that line to test for some time, with no luck. But, having stumbled upon information on one Reuben Vermillion of Vermillion Co., IL and later Barry Co., MO., as well as information on the Garrisons from Stone Co., MO., I am about ready to concede that a descendant of the Stone Co., MO Garrison would probably be an acceptable test subject for my Garrisons. Since you were mentioning Garrisons from Missouri, I was wondering if you know if any descendant of the Stone Co., MO. Garrison's have already been tested.

    1. [GARRISON-DNA] John GARRISON DNA Update
    2. Yvonne Bowers
    3. Another piece of the puzzle. So you all know my 3rd cousin (a direct male descendant of John GARRISON b. 1799/1800 VA. & Elizabeth THOMPSON b. 1811 KY.) on FamilyTreeDNA (FTDNA). We've got almost all the results back. Only one clue has surfaced so far.... John's son Robert Thomas GARRISON married a daughter of James GARRISON (the OH. towboat captain) & Maria SULLIVAN so there was at the very least a relationship by marriage. There's been much discussion about James and John and whether or not they were brothers. There is a lot of circumstantial evidence that they are related but nothing conclusive. I can't even tie John directly to Mason Co., KY. which is where I believe he was after being born in VA. However, a woman b. 1770 named Elon/Ellen was found in the Mason Co., KY. census living with a son of James, later alone and finally in 1860 with John in MO. James' descendants believe his parents were George GARRISON and Elon/ Elnora (poss.) LOFTIS. Our GARRISON descendant is an 11/12 marker match for Melford GARRISON who is a direct descendant of James. That in and of itself isn't conclusive but in context I think is fairly significant. James and John were possibly brothers or cousins. If any one of you has candidates from this VA>KY>OH and/or MO. GARRISON family we'd love to add you to the database! We're inching toward knowing where John and possibly James came from!

    1. [GARRISON-DNA] DNA testing companies
    2. Karen
    3. As more and more participants are tested, we're learning that there may be matching results that are not being identified. There have been a significant number of Garrison descendants tested by Family Tree DNA. That company notifies you of matches within their database. However, if another Garrison was tested by someone other than FTDNA, you will not be notified of that match. It's very important that all DNA participants who want to make contact with those whose DNA match theirs register with YSEARCH.org. It's free and it's easy. Anyone tested by any company can register. It's the only site I've found that makes it easy to make contact with your matches. Please let us know if there are others. You can also register and search for matches on SMGF.org and GeneTree.com. I have found matches on those sites that are not posted publicly anywhere else. However, I haven't found a way to make contact with those matches from these two sites. Please let me know if you have found a way. I'm finding that participants tested by different companies are also having problems trying to compare results. I would very much like to see all companies offer the option of converting a person's test to the set of markers tested by other companies at minimal additional expense. For instance, I am in touch with more than one person who was tested by Ancestry. The matches with their surname were tested by FTDNA. For the FTDNA 37 marker test, Ancestry only tests 32 of the same markers. So those two participants can presently only match a maximum of 32 markers. Because FTDNA has such a large portion of the market, it would be very helpful if the other companies would agree to add the additional markers tested by FTDNA or that all companies come together and agree on a standard set of markers.

    1. [GARRISON-DNA] Results for descendant of Zebulon Garrison
    2. Karen
    3. Results of the 37 marker test for a descendant of Zebulon Garrison and Rebekah Allen of Franklin County Georgia and Montgomery County Illinois has been received from Family Tree DNA. He is a descendant of Zebulon's oldest son William Garrison and his wife Elizabeth who were married in Franklin County Georgia and lived in Stewart County Tennessee. All 37 markers are a match to our first participant who descends from Zebulon & Rebekah's son Caleb and his wife Susannah Clark. Both of them are a perfect match to three of the descendants of Jedediah Garrison of Franklin County Georgia and just one marker off from another descendant of Jedediah. The descendant of Ebenezer Garrison has a genetic distance of two from the other participants. Twelve marker results have been received by a descendant of Caleb Garrison of Warren County Kentucky and they also match our group as well as the descendant of Shadrack Garrison who was tested by Ancestry. The rest of the 37 marker results should be received from FTDNA shortly. We have another participant who believes he descends from Zebulon's son John Garrison and his wife Delila Baker through their son Elias Baker Garrison. His results are expected in about a month.
