I've just joined this list, and thought I would introduce myself. I had my
mtDNA testing done through Oxford Ancestors this last winter (Christmas
present from my mom). We came up as Helena CRS (no mutations). I've made
a webpage for Helena CRS: http://www.olypen.com/amelia/helena/ . My
maternal line is mostly Pennsylvania Dutch, with heavy emphasis on the
Germanic-Swiss names - but it appears to make a sharp turn at the end (so
far) that may be Scots/Irish/English.
Working my way back:
1st generation (my great-grandmother): Mary Maria SHUTTS b. 8 Mar 1889
Felton (Viola?), Kent Co., DE; d. 22 Jan 1978 Orofino, Clearwater Co., ID;
bur. Meridian, Ada Co., ID; m. Samuel Alexander WEBB 3 Jan 1912 Camden
(Felton?), Kent Co., DE. (3 children - 2 daughters).
2nd generation (my 2nd-great-grandmother): Mary Amelia HARNISH b. 12 Feb
1854 Huntingdon Co., PA; d. 30 Dec 1932 Radnor, Delaware Co., PA; bur.
Frederica, DE; m. Frederick SHUTTS 27 Nov 1883 Kent Co., DE. (3 children -
3rd generation (my 3rd-great-grandmother): Maria KNODE b. 1812 Huntingdon
Co., PA; d. 1903 Felton, Kent Co., DE; bur. Hopkins Farm Cemetery, Felton,
Kent Co., DE; m. Christian HARNISH. (7 children - 3 daughters, but only 1
daughter that lived to majority).
4th generation (my 4th-great-grandmother): Mary HUYETT b. 2 Apr 1789 of
Cavetown, Washington, MD; d. 27 Jul 1874 Porter Twp., Huntingdon Co., PA;
bur. Huyett Cemetery, Hartslog Valley, PA; m. Lt. Henry KNODE 22 Jan 1809
MD. (9 children - 2 daughters).
5th generation (my 5th-great-grandmother): Maria Margretta POTTER (aka
Margaret POTTER) b. 1 Feb 1752 of Franklin Co., PA; d. 21 Dec 1833
Washington Co., MD; bur. Cavetown, Washington Co., MD; m. Ludwig (Louis)
HUYETT 1771. (6 children - 3 daughters).
Margaret POTTER is the daughter of Capt. John POTTER (1720-????). I have
not yet been able to find the right Margaret POTTER with the father John
POTTER in order to get back any further on this line.
We had my husband's mtDNA tested this summer. His has come up as
Aiyana. His mutations are: 111T 290T 319A 362C. I've made a webpage for
Clan Aiyana: http://www.olypen.com/amelia/aiyana/ . We know my husband's
maternal ancestors are of the Makah, Cowichan, and Quileute Tribes in the
Pacific Northwest - in fact, this is where we live - on the reservation. I
have yet to find anyone with these exact same four (4) mutations. His
maternal family and relatives that should carry this sequence are very
Working back on my husband's mtDNA line:
1st generation (great-grandmother): Clara JOHNSON b. 1888/1890; d. 7 May
1931; 1m. Charles SMITH; 2m. Hilary IRVING (1893-1954) Makah & Cowichan
Tribes. (6 children - 2 daughters).
2nd generation (2nd-great-grandmother): Annie JONES b. ????; d. ????; 1m.
Selwish JOHNSON (1865-????) Makah Tribe; 2m. John JAMES Makah Tribe; 3m.
___ WILLIAMS. (at least 4 children - 3 daughters).
3rd generation (3rd-great-grandmother): Sallie ____ b. ???? Quileute
Tribe; d. ????; m. Web JONES Tsoo-Yess Village, Makah Tribe. (unknown # of
children - at least 1 daughter).
We also received my husband's Y-Line analysis back from Oxford Ancestors
this past week. As best as I can tell, his results would be grouped with
R1a1??? His results are: DYS 19 (DYS 394) = 15; DYS 388 = 12; DYS 390 =
25; DYS 391 = 10; DYS 392 = 11; DYS 393 = 13; DYS 389i = 10/13; DYS 389ii-i
= 17/30; DYS 425 = 12; DYS 426 = 12. His paternal line is DAVIS(S)ON,
going back to Daniel DAVISON (1630-1693), who came to Massachusetts from
Scotland. I can list out his paternal genealogical line if anyone is
I look forward to learning a lot from this list, and hopefully finding more
