Descendants of James Holt and Catherine Shipley
Seeking a male descendant surnamed Holt who descends from James Holt (1796 -bef 1860) and Catherine Shipley of Sullivan Co TN. Object: DNA testing. I will help pay for a DNA test as part of the Holt surname genealogy for such a male. There is much discussion about whether our Sullivan Co Tn Holts are German or English. German descendants of Hans Michael Holt and English descendants of Robert Holt/Plunkett Holt, have been tested & are obviously different. It would be so nice to get some data on a descendant of James Holt of Sullivan Co Tn. I am willing to throw in a bottle of award winning California wine to the person who finds me a male Holt w/the Sullivan co ancestry!
