After finding over 4000 trees on Ancestry and Rootsweb World
Connect pages that claim the Major Robert Harris who married Mary Claiborne was the son of Capt Thomas Harris by an assortment of wives, it is time to show this claim as false. yDNA from descendants of Maj Robert Harris does not match the yDNA of descendants of Capt Thomas Harris. In fact they come from different haplo blood types, proving conclusively that they could not be related and that they shared no common male Harris ancestor within recorded history, at least back thousands of years to when the haplo blood groups were formed. Results from the testing of these descendants is shown at http://www.harrisdna.org/results.html
. Those from Robert Harris are in group 6, while those from Capt Thomas Harris are in group 8. A description of the haplo blood types is given on the ftdna.com website.
