TERRY Haplogroup I -  Lineage I -  Discussion

Haplogroup I2a

(This is of course a work in progress)

Many of the Terry families in Haplogroup I - Lineage I track to Southside Virginia which refers to the south-central part of the state, roughly bounded by the James River on the north, the Blue Ridge Mountains on the west, and the South Hampton Roads area on the east. Counties often considered part of this region include, Patrick, Henry, Bedford, Pittsylvania, Halifax, Charlotte, Mecklenburg, Campbell, Lunenburg, Brunswick, Nottoway, Amelia, Prince Edward, Appomattox, Buckingham, Cumberland, Powhatan, Dinwiddie, and Greensville counties. The major center of the "Southside Virginia" area is generally considered to be Danville. It appears most of the families in this group are genetically early Terry families in the region called "Southside Virginia".  Source: Wikpedia the Free Encyclopedia

Stephen Terry,
  b ca 1700, Hanover CO., VA
- Bryan Terry [bryanswork AT yahoo.com] T-10
Stephen had documented sons from deeds as follows: James Terry and Roland Terry.

Based on DNA evidence and documentation this particular Stephen Terry is related to everyone in the group. We are unable at this point to determine who his father might be. There are documents in Hanover and Louisa County Virginia tying this man to descendants in Granville County, North Carolina. His age is estimated based on the estimated ages of two of his male children: James d. 1783 Louisa Co. Virginia and Rowland Terry later of Granville County, North Carolina. There is no evidence indicating Stephen Terry of Hanover ever lived in Granville Co. North Carolina. This Stephen Terry d. after 1763 and before 1783 as his son James Terry in his Will [Louisa Co. Virginia Book 2, page 493 written 11 Aug 1783 and proven 11 Aug 1783] indicates “that my wife possess during her life that part of my estate that falls to me in the division of my father’s estate….”  

Roland or Rowland Terry's ancestors migrated from Granville County, North Carolina to Jackson/Putnam Counties, Tennessee. There are many descendants in this area today. The late Jay Terry of Orem, Utah and the late Woodford Terry of Oakridge, Tennessee are of this line. Both T-24 Benjamin Terry  b. ca 1700 d. 1771 Pittsylvania Co. VA m Elizabeth [probably Dickerson] and T-42 Stephen Terry b ca 1790 m ca 1810 Martha Bracken d abt 1825 match on 37/37 markers with T-10. The link to the right will take you to: Granville County Records

*The above numbers are based exclusively on the comparison of their Y-DNA results, which show no mismatches. I believe a generation is considered to be 25 years.

Roland D. Terry lived his entire life in Alabama. His parents are unproven at this time; however, he matches perfectly on the first 12 markers with 13 individuals in the group. Basically, the first 12 DYS marker values which define this group are 13, 23, 15,10,12,15,11,15,12,13,11, 29. On the 37 marker test he is a 100 percent match with T-10, T-24, and T-43. A genetic distance of 0 indicates these individualas are  "Tightly Related" according to Family Tree DNA. We are awaiting death certificate information which may name his parents. 

John W. Terry, b between 1808-1810 VA d 28 Nov 1884 Hanover Co. VA - Richard W. Terry, Jr. [rickterry349 AT adelphia.net] T-38

John W. Terry lived his entire life in Hanover County, Virginia. His parents are unknown; however, he matches perfectly on the first 12 markers with 13 individuals in the group. Basically, the first 12 DYS marker values which define this group are 13, 23, 15,10,12,15,11,15,12,13,11, 29
We now have 37 marker test for T-38 and a comparison with T-20 is shown.

In comparing 12markers, the probability that T-38 and T-2, T-3, T-10,T-11, T-17, T-18, T-20, T-21, T-24, T-40, T-42, T-43,T-45 and T-50  shared a common ancestor within the last....

This result seems to confirm a close relationship between Stephen Terry d. 1769 in South Carolina and the Hanover County, Virginia John Terry with a genetic distance of 1 or "Tightly Related". A genetic distance of 2 exists or "Related" between T-38 and T-9 George W. Terry, T-10 Rowland Terry, T-11  Josiah or Joseph Terry, T-24 Benjamin Terry and T-42 Stephen Terry and suggests a relationship with the Pittsylvania/Halifax County, Virginia Terrys. Of course, we do have documents concerning Stephen Terry who died sometime between 1763-1783 of Hanover who deeded property in Granville County, North Carolina to his son Rowland Terry T-10 and James Terry of Louisa. This is of course not the T-2 and T-20 Stephen Terry who died in 1769 in Craven or Chester County, South Carolina. However, they are genetically related as results indicate.

Benjamin Terry,
b c 1701 m Elizabeth [probably Dickerson] d 1771 Pittsylvania Co. VA - David K. Terry [dkt4ster AT hotmail.com] T-24
Benjamin Terry had documented sons in his Will of 1771 as follows: Nathaniel, Benjamin, Peter, Joseph and Robert Terry.

Benjamin Terry is one of the oldest "documented" Terry ancestors in the group from Virginia and he perfectly matches the modal values for Haplogroup I - Lineage I indicating he is the closest match to the MRCA (Most recent common ancestor) for the whole group. Benjamin’s oldest son Nathaniel Terry (1725-1778) married Sarah Royall. Nathaniel Terry was a member of the House of Burgesses and of the House of Delegates. He died, Halifax County, Virginia. This older Benjamin Terry had a daughter Sarah Terry who married Champness Terry, the son of Joseph Terry died about Dec 1785 Pittsylvania County, Virginia and his wife Judith Crawford. This Champness Terry died between 1775 and 1779 in South Carolina. Champness and Sarah had a son also named Champness (1772-1820) who died in St. Helena Parish, Louisiana.

Note: These are the "Red Level", Covington County, Alabama Terrys.

The probability that T-63 shared a common ancestor with T-24 is: 8 generations 95.27%; 12 generations is 99.32%; 16 generations is 99.91 %; 20 generations is 99.99%; 24 generations is100%.

The probability that T-63 shared a common ancestor with T-20 is: 8 generations 85.41%; 12 generations is 97.05%; 16 generations is 99.49 %; 20 generations is 99.92%; 24 generations is 99.99%.

The probability that T-63 shared a common ancestor with T-23 is: 8 generations 85.45%; 12 generations is 97.06%; 16 generations is 99.49 %; 20 generations is 99.92%; 24 generations is 99.99%.

T-63 and T-24 are a genetic distance of 1 and a genetic distance of 2 with T-20 and T-23. According to FTNDA if you have a 65-66/67 match you are “tightly related”  they go on to say “Very few people achieve this close level of a match. All confidence levels are well within the time frame that surnames were adopted in Western Europe.”

I should note first cousins and brothers with the same surname will predictably match 37/37. We see a verification of this in comparing T-3 and T-61 in the Terry DNA study. So these results are significant for the Group I Terry Lineage.

Stephen Terry, b ca 1700 VA d aft Feb 1762 - William P. Terry [wterry AT dccnet.com] T-21
This person has only tested 12 markers; however, documents are available indicating he is a traditional cousin of T-10. For this reason he is included in Haplogroup I - Lineage I. In addition he has a double Terry line as both his maternal and paternal Terry ancestors were related.

Stephen Terry, b ca 1724 m Sarah ??, d 19 Dec 1769 Craven Co. SC - Robert Mike Terry [mterry3158 AT sbcglobal.net] T-2
Stephen Terry had documented sons as follows: John who died in Chester County, South Carolina and Benjamin Terry who died in Abbeville County, South Carolina..


This is the Co-Coordinator of the Terry DNA Project and former editor of the Terry Family Historian. Web master for the Terry Family Historian web site. See the notes for the same individual below for my cousin Mary Webster T-20.

Stephen Terry, m Sarah ??, d 19 Dec 1769 Craven Co. SC - Mary Terry Webster [bee-gard AT att.net] T-20
The male individuals who tested in this study T-2 and T-20 are 3rd cousins twice removed. Their most recent common ancestor is known and there is a definite date of 1788 which is the year of birth for Major Stephen Terry later of Atlanta, Georgia. The estimated age of this older Stephen Terry is based on the age of his first son John Terry (1752-1834) of Chester County, South Carolina.  There is no indication in records I have seen in 30 or more years of research indicating where the family originated from in the American Colonies. Obviously, now in 2006-2007 we know it is Virginia. We know this older Stephen Terry was a carpenter and received early grants in Craven County now Chester County, South Carolina in 1762.  The older Stephen Terry married the widow of George Glover, Susannah Glover nee Mitchell, shortly after his wife Sarah died. It is important to note both George Glover and Susannah Mitchell’s parents were of Granville, North Carolina.  The last name of Sarah the first wife of this older Stephen Terry is not known. Some have suggested Sarah Davis and Sarah Fuqua neither of which I believe to be true.

Note by Mike Terry, the editor: I think the benefits of the 67 marker update are apparent several places in Haplogroup I - Lineage I. There are mutations that happened in my family after 1788 as I stated above. My cousin’s test (T-20) is much closer to Benjamin Terry (T-24) than mine. On 67 markers my test shows a genetic distance between (T-2 and T-24) of 3 and conversely I am a genetic distance of 4 with my documented cousin (T-2 and T-20). However, T-20 my cousin and T-24 are a genetic distance of 2. If you look at the specific markers where T-20 differs from T-24, you will notice T-2 markers are congruent with T-24 in those places. Without the additional markers we would not have known this. I believe this is also true for the Lawrence Co. Alabama Terry descendants who have tested in Haplogroup I - Lineage I. Some of them have mutations later in the lines and some are closer to Benjamin Terry T-24 as well. I suspect if these men upgrade you will also be able to see where the mutations may have occurred. Many of the differences are in the red marker areas where we would expect faster mutations. -- This leads me to think some of us are much closer than the actual test results may suggest in Haplogroup I - Lineage I.

In comparing 67 markers, the probability that T-20 Stephen Terry and T-24 Benjamin Terry shared a common ancestor within the last....
4 generations 8 generations 12 generations 16 generations 20 generations 24 generations
71.27% 95.04% 99.27% 99.9% 99.99% 100%

*The probabilities were based on the fact the two individuals did not share a common ancestor in the last 4 generations. I believe a generation is considered to be 25 years.

The FTDNATiP results are based on the mutation rate study presented during the 1st International Conference on Genetic Genealogy, on Oct. 30, 2004. The above probabilities take into consideration the mutation rates for each individual marker being compared. The above numbers are based exclusively on the comparison of their Y-DNA results, which show 1 mismatches.


Stephen Terry,
d. 12 Dec 1769, Chester Co., SC, m.(1) Sarah ____ - Stephen Mark Hunter [markhunterbburg AT yahoo.com]
This individual is a cousin of T-20 and T-2. Mark Hunter is related through both Benjamin Terry (1755 – 1831) and John Terry (1752-1834) sons of Stephen Terry d. 1769. Both his Hunter and Terry families removed from Chester County to Abbeville County, South Carolina and were there for several years after 1830. This Benjamin Terry did marry 05 Aug 1777, Susannah Caruthers in Guilford County, North Carolina. As far as we know, this Benjamin Terry had no male heirs and his daughter Sarah Terry married her first cousin Jeremiah Sealy Terry (1778-1823), the son of John (1752-1834) by his first wife Sarah Sealy (1757-1778).

Benjamin Terry had a daughter Sarah Terry who married Champness Terry, the son of Joseph Terry died about Dec 1785 Pittsylvania County, Virginia and his wife Judith Crawford. This Champness Terry died between 1775 and 1779 in South Carolina. Champness and Sarah had a son also named Champness (ca 1772-1820) who died in St. Helena Parish, Louisiana. His wife Hanna Musgrove is in the 1840 census of Washington Parish LA. He had a number of slave purchases/sales from this area 1803-1818 Afro-Louisiana History and Genealogy 1718-1820.  Type the name Terry in the Master's name search box and you will see Champness was buying slaves from a William Coleman. Stephen Terry (T-18) is in the St. Tammany Parish census in 1840. St. Tammany included what is now Washington Parish (1819) and Tangiapahoa Parish (1869).

While we have no documentation these Terry men are related; I would suggest they would probably be "genetic cousins" if we were to find male Terry descendants.

Stephen Terry

Stephen Terry had sons as follows: William C., John Franklin, Thomas, Stephen,  John Tobe, Edward, Squire Coleman and John H. Terry.


It is believed Henderson Terry T-3, Joseph T-45 and Stephen Terry T-42 are brothers and the children of Nancy Terry and husband unknown. See Lawrence County Alabama Descendants. There is a very large contingent of Terry descendants out of this Alabama county. 

This seems to be born out by the DNA results to date which is to be expected as there is traditional documentation to support the family ties. 

 A genetic distance of  0 on 37 markers between T-42 Stephen Terry b ca 1790 m ca 1810 Martha Bracken d abt 1825, T-10 Stephen Terry,  b ca1700, Hanover CO., VA and  T-24 Benjamin Terry  b c 1700 d. 1771 Pittsylvania Co. VA is very interesting suggesting these men are "related". Prior to the test by T-42,  T-3 did not seem to be a very close match. It suggests there were mutations in the family of T-3 Henderson Terry occurring in later generations. It would be very interesting to see how increased testing by members in the Lawrence County, Alabama Group might match the modal values for Haplogroup I - Lineage I.

Gideon Terry, b abt 1753, d 1821 King William Co., VA m Mary Unknown, bef 1786 James William Terry [jwterry99 AT yahoo.com]   T-16 Male sons of Gideon Terry were named as follows: James E., John, Stephen and William A. Terry.

William A. Terry 1793 - 1851 was the Great Great Grandfather of T-16. His gravestone in St. Louis County, Missouri states he was born in KWC in 1793. He bought land in St. Louis Co. in 1829 and was listed in the 1830-1850 census. He was traced in KWC via personal property tax lists. These lists yielded that his father was Gideon Terry. William Terry was clearly in KWC from 1815 to 1819 since he is listed as son of Gideon. It is not known where he was from 1820 to 1829. There was no 1810 census and he doesn't seem to be in the 1820 census; although there were 3 William Terrys that year.

T-16 has a mutation at DYS #388 of 14 which apparently occurs much later in the line and no where else in Haplogroup I - Lineage I. DYS #458 value of 18 at first appears to be a pattern in some of the tests; however, T-20 is a documented cousin of T-2 who does not have the marker value of 18. Similarly, at DYS#  CDYa a value of 34 is indicated in some tests. Again, T-20 and T-2 do not have this number and are related so this is not a pattern for a sub group within the group. As we get more tests submitted these markers may be significant for others groupings within the Haplogroup I - Lineage I lineage. The short answer here is if you rule out DYS#388 as a late mutation T-16 is probably closer to  the Hanover Virginia Terry men than the test suggests. Again, this shows the importance of 67 marker tests and tests which include  traditionally documented branches of a family. Please reference DNA results.

A comparison of DNA tests between T-23 John (Jack) Terry, Jr. b. c1780 Va. and T-24 Benjamin Terry d. 1771 in Pittsylvania County, Virginia indicates they are "Tightly Related". FTDNA suggests "Very few people achieve this close level of a match." Traditional documentation does not exist to confirm this relationship, In 2007, given DNA results, Daniel Terry believed to be the son and of  John "Jack" Terry is living next to "genetic" Terry relatives in Stewart County, Georgia in the 1850 census. Daniel Terry who dies in 1864 in Stewart County, Georgia is a brother to David Terry also a son of John "Jack" Terry.

David Terry m. Susan Forrest  [son of John "Jack" Terry] names his male children: John Jackson, Albert, Daniel W., DeWitt C., James M., George T. and Robert R. Terry.

The fact that Daniel Terry is born in North Carolina and  brother David is born in Georiga is not inconsistent with the pattern of migration of some of Benjamin Terry's d. 1771 children and grandchildren. Some are found in Orange/Caswell, County North Carolina and later in Abbeville District, South Carolina.

Additionally, T-23 John (Jack) Terry, Jr. b. c1780 Va. is genetically related on 67 markers to the following:

Sons named in Will of Henry Terry as follows: Thomas, Barton, Charles and Henry Terry.

Henry Terry died Bet. 08 Dec 1783 - 19 Apr 1784 in Pittsylvania County, Virginia.  Sons named in his Will were as follows: Henry, Thomas, Barton and Charles Terry. His son Rev. Henry Terry, Jr b ca 1741 d 1790 Elbert County, Georgia  m Mary Ann Baldwin. After her husband's death she m the Rev. Charles Webb of Anderson County, South Carolina. Her children removed to Georgia.

The Will of Champness Terry d. 1758 in Louisa County, Virginia names a son Henry Terry. Documents are available which indicates this Champness is the brother of  James Terry. Again, just how Benjamin Terry is related to Henry Terry d ca 1783 is not documented as far as I know.

Now, how the Lawrence County Alabama T-42 Stephen Terry m Martha Bracken is related is unknown. Some think this branch of the Terry family originated in North Carolina. DNA results indicate the trail may lead to Hanover and Pittsylvania County, Virginia as well.

He was in Richmond/Anson County, North Carolina where other Terrys were who migrated from Virginia. He is known as the William Terry "East of the Peedee" in many published Terry books.

William B. Terry
, b 1797 d 1878 Orange Co NC m Elizabeth J. Brown 13 Sep 1824 -  David Nicks Terry  [dterry5 AT nc.rr.com] T-46

William B. Terry had male children named: Bedford Marion and Stephen L. Terry. He married in 1824 Elizabeth J. Brown in Person County, North Carolina. The 1850 Orange County census shows he had six daughters. In 1855, William B. Terry was a Justice of the Peace in Orange County, North Carolina. David N. Terry indicates he has found the hand written name of Hezekiah Terry in the papers of Bedford Marion Terry indicating they were "acquainted". 

Note: It is so nice to see a census taker who followed directions. In the 1860 Orange County NC census he listed the county and state of birth. C. E. Parish indicated on 26 Jun 1860 Hezekiah Terry was born in Granville County, North Carolina and his children at the time were born in Orange County, North Carolina. Hezekiah m 1) Sarah Berry 2) Jane Dunnegan. Earlier in the census for the same year he listed William B. Terry  and his son Bedford Terry who was in the next houshold  were also born in North Carolina.

We are not sure at this point how William B. Terry is related to Benjamin Terry d. 1771. 

Robert Terry and Susanna Saunders [son of Benjamin Terry d. 1771] were married in Caswell (later Orange County) in 1772. They removed to Abbeville District, South Carolina  and both died there between 1794-1800. The DNA test of T-24 Benjamin Terry would suggest this Robert Terry is a "genetic" cousin of William B. Terry. 

David Nicks Terry indicated there is a listing of cemeteries of Orange County, North Carolina at Allen Dew Genealogy  It lists all graves in Orange County with names, dates and pictures of most head stones. Check Little River and Walnut Grove United Methodist for John Lyon Terry and John Rainey Terry. See William Terry picture of field stone  - W. T. b 1797 d1878.

This James Terry who d about 1828 was the son of Roland Terry the son of Stephen Terry of Hanover County, Virginia from the top of this segment. Even though they married Gooch sisters, there is no evidence to suggest William Terry d bef 1808 in Caswell County is related to James Terry d about 1828. Is there evidence T-46 William B.

Abstracts of Stephen Terry memorials and plats in Craven County SC

Royal grant from Lord Charles Montague to Stephen Terry. Granted 200 A on the Caney Fork of a Creek called Sandy River on the Saluda Road between Broad and Catawba Rivers in Craven Co. SC--10? Jul 1762. Note: Fifty-two acres of this land granted to William Morris by son of Stephen: John Terry 1752-1834).--Jan 1793.

Stephen Terry and wife, formerly Susannah Glover, both of St. Marks Parish, Craven Co., SC sell to James McClure of same, 150 acres on S. fork of  Fishing Creek. Charleston Co. SC, Miscellaneous Records, M-3, p. 498--17 Feb 1769. [This was George Glover's land -- her deceased husband. She had married the widower Stephen Terry about 1767.] In the deed it mentions Stephen Terry was a carpenter and James McCluer a Planter. [Both Stephen Terry and James McCluer are in the line of
T-2]

Letters of administration to Susannah Glover wife of George Glover, late of Fishing Creek. Probate Records of SC Vol. 3, p. 26-- compiled by Brent Holcomb.

Susannah Glover Terry granted letters of administration for Stephen Terry, late of St. David's Parish, Craven Co., SC. South Carolina Historical & Genealogical Magazine. Vol. 44, p. 48--14 Mar 1770.

Susannah Glover was the second wife of Stephen Terry d. 1769. She was the widow of George Glover and the daughter of Robert Mitchell of Granville Co. NC. Both the Glover and Mitchell families were in Granville County NC in the 1750?s. Stephen and Susannah had no issue.

There is no record I have found which shows the 200 acres of land on Caney fork of Sandy River  was transferred to son John Terry. According to South Carolina law at the time, as the oldest son, John Terry was heir to the land as Stephen Terry died in intestate i.e. no valid Will. The land is in present day Chester County near Chester, SC and John Terry is buried there.
 
This is the last information that shows proofs for the Chester-Craven County family of Stephen and his son John Terry. This is proofs for
T-2.

It appears that these families are related from DNA tests results. It does not necessarily suggest this is the same Stephen Terry in both cases. Just that there is a common ancestor between
several members of Haplogroup I - Lineage I with Stephen Terry of Hanover County, Virginia who we know resided in Hanover County, Virginia from 1752-1762 as well as Benjamin Terry ca 1700-1771 of Pittsylvania County, Virginia. As of April, 2007 we have enough tests to suggest a modal baseline for Haplogroup I - Lineage I.

We have yet to have a male test from Edgefield or Fairfield SC Terry families. These former groups are also possibly related per the research of the late Jay Terry of Orem, Utah.


Knowing that
T-2 Stephen Terry, b ca 1724 m Sarah ??, d 19 Dec 1769 Craven Co. SC
and T-10 Stephen Terry,  b ca 1700, Hanover CO., VA could not have had a common ancestor in the last 8 generations, their 37 marker comparison shows that the probability that they shared a common ancestor within the last... Note: in 2006-2007 Family Tree introduced the 67 marker test which allow for more precision in comparing DNA markers between two male Terry individuals.

200 - 300 years is 74.24%   
400 - years is 93.09%   
500 - years is 98.62%   
600 - years is 99.07%   
700 - years is 99.94%

The FTDNATiP results are based on the mutation rate study presented during the 1st International Conference on Genetic Genealogy, on Oct. 30, 2004. The above probabilities take into consideration the mutation rates for each individual marker being compared.
  
Since each marker has a different mutation rate, identical Genetic Distances will not necessarily yield the same probabilities. In other words, even though
T-10 has a Genetic Distance of 1 from T-2, someone else with the same Genetic Distance may have different probabilities, because the distance of 1 was prompted by mutations in different markers, with different mutation rates.
