Once again I am posting that if you or you know of a Male of direct Calvert Descent for any Calvert Colbert (sic), Harris &Harrison(Aliases of especially), Please contact me as soon as possible. I believe we have 17 participants to date and more pending. We also have a list of willing contributors to assist with the cost of the test if necessary....cost is 169.00 per kit.
There are Several Family lines which interest me greatly, but two of those which are not directly represented are John Calvert b 1666 who married Esther Jones and John Calvert b 1777 who married a Mary? There are many more lines but specifically the descendents of George b 1668 who married Elizabeth Doyne or William Calvert b1643 who married Elizabeth Stone.
A bit more recent in time would be Descendents of Aaron Calvert of this Calvert family of Gurnsey, CO OH, John Colbert who married Catherine Lynn but he was a Calvert...particularly if your family line is adjacent t to the Colberts in VA or PA and another locale of special interest is of the families coming out of Virginia especially Culpeper, Prince William, Fairfax, Loudoun Counties.
In PA Washington, Fayette, Greene and Butler counties may provide us with succinct clues. Also the John B 1777 lived in Mifflin County.
Other Calverts who might be noted as important are those family lines of Chester such as John, Daniel Isaac etc. There is in particular a John Calvert of Chester who was not a descendent of those Calverts of Ireland nor was he Quaker and it appears he, according to Hollingsworth researchers of this Quaker migration, was a descendent of Maryland Calverts.
Of those there are many but less well known:
ALexander Calvert who married Mary Wheeler in Somerset Co MD, or any of his sons, including William Wheeler, Isaac and Alexander Neal.
I know there are more out there who have not done a Calvert DNA study. If you can help, please advise. If you have already had a DNA test done, that information and a family descent to ponder would be very helpful to all of use who have reached roadblocks in tracing our ancestry.
My known Ancestors are:
Isaac Calvert b c1747 VA? MD? married Faney Bullet Thomas Clare Calvert Sr b1769 VA m1 Anna Ewing(s) Thomas Clare Calvert Jr b1808 PA m Elizabeth Johnson Albert Gallatin b1830 VA m Mary A. Polly Cain John Ewing Calvert b1856 WV m Martha Lemasters Arthur Clay Calvert b1876 m1-4, 4, Amanda Sylvesta Rose
Arthur was my Grandfather. I surely have good culprits for the father and grandfather of Isaac but no proof and it follows 3 separate paths.
If you need to know about an ancestry, reply to this message with whom and where and when. It might help us find a DNA contributor.
