Richard "The Elder" Harrison - The test kit is 136507.  This lineage has a match with another Brothers participant that is not in this project.   There is a 66/67 marker match between a member of this line.  It is not clear if there was an early adoption between these lines, but there is a 99.2% chance of a common male ancestor since the year 1700. Whether that common ancestor was a Brothers or a Harrison is as yet unknown.
This Harrison line is also a genetic distance of 1 on the 37 marker test with kit# 428903.

Interesting to note that this Harrison line does have 2 other Harrison matches that migrated from Ireland but no family connection has been made.  

This family is haplogroup R-M269

I'm interested in sharing DNA results with one of the male descendants of Robert Prewitt and Martha Chandler. Their descendants have created a facebook page called Prewitts of Central Kentucky. My requests on their page have gone unnoticed. If anyone here can broker this request I would be grateful.

I believe a DNA match between myself and a descendant of Robert will help connect Andrew and Richard, sons of Henry (1658).

My 5th great grandfather, Elijah Prewitt, was born about the same time as Robert and his brother Joshua. Both Robert and Joshua moved to Fayette Co., Kentucky about the same time Elijah moved to Madison, Co. Kentucky. These are adjoining counties.

Robert's line back to Henry is thought to be Michael, then Andrew. Elijah's line back to Henry is thought to be David, then Richard.

I have not made connection with the Robert Prewitt line but the family of Martha Chandler along with the Cobb family remained in proximity to my Mitchell-Prewitt line settling in Scott/Owen/Henry/Trimble Counties.  They had a son, Vaul Allen Prewitt and we have a namesake uncle, Vaul Allen Mitchell who served in the Civil War.  Ironically, my dad's younger brother looks exactly like Vaul Allen Prewitt of 1824!  This leads me to believe that Judith looked a great deal like Vaul Allen, son of Robert Prewitt and Martha Chandler.  Or, that these looks were consistent across the family. 

The Chandlers appear on the census with my Mitchells in Trimble County, KY (we are from Judith Prewitt, daughter of Michael Sr) well into the 1920 Census.  One of my great grandfather's dearest childhood friends was Cordelia "Cordie" Chandler.  Joshua Prewitt died in Trimble County also, will proved.  My 4th great grandfather witnessed Joshua's last will and testament in Trimble.

I did connect in 2015 with a Daughter of the Revolution who is descended from Byrd Prewitt, son of Michael.  She confirmed that it was Byrd's house in Nicholasville where Michael Prewitt died in 1798.  Her name is Cindie Prewitt Vaughan and she lives in Texas. 

She is also a member of the Mayflower Society and may be of some assistance to you in your research.  If you like, I can put you in touch with her.  Most of Trimble and Henry County records are not online and they directly impact the records found in Shelby County, KY and beyond.  If any of this rings a bell, I will be happy to do a few lookups for you to help with Elijah Prewitt.

Well, since no one every replies to any of my posts, Bill Dietrich and I will just have to talk among ourselves!  He he, ho ho, ha ha! 

I have the impression there is no interest in this project! A project with no participation is not of much use! What a shame! 

Even the project admin seems to be absent!

Btw, this will be the first reply to any post for quite a long time.

Hi Bill!

Welcome to the group! 

There are quite a few Coulter families in Northern England as well as southwestern Scotland and Glasgow.  I think I may be related to one of them.  The first name "Ralph" is in my Coulter family.  One of the families of Northern England uses it repeated as well.  I don't have any direct correlation yet, but I'm hoping with further testing and research, I might learn more. 

Many of the Coulters were sea faring folks.  They piloted their ships to Virginia and back selling goods that were hard to find in the colonies returning with cotton and tobacco to sell in the British Isles.  A preponderance of Coulters were farmers.  Generally they were Presbyterians.  Many moved to Ireland during the Jacobite Rebellion.  In my Coulter family, my ancestors were gentlemen farmers with some being merchants and few went into medicine and law.  Since many were lowlanders, I would imagine that some were border reavers.

My great-grandfather, John Charles Coulter, immigrated to the U.S. in 1870.  He was the youngest son with three older brothers. With no hope of inheriting land, he had become a school master.  He married his wife, Margaret Gordon, of Islandmagee, in County Antrim.  They immediately immigrated to the U.S.

Please feel free to contact me as I believe we may be related -- most likely distantly related.

The DNA Day Sale is supposed to begin today, although it is not yet reflected on our Order page.  If you do decide to order one or more tests, be sure you receive the Sales price before completing your order.

The Sale runs from sometime on Thursday, 20 April until one minute until Midnight on Thursday, 27 April.

Here are the tests that are on Sale and their prices during this period:

    Family Finder          $59.00
    mtFull Sequence    $149.00
    Y-DNA37               $129.00
    Y-DNA67               $209.00
    Y-DNA111             $289.00
    Big Y                     $425.00
    SNP Backbone         $79.00
    SNP Packs               $89.00

Please note that these sales are for new tests only, not STR upgrades.  The Backbone price includes not only the R1b Backbone, but also the de facto Backbone, the I1-M253 SNP Pack.  These are good prices for the Backbones and really excellent prices for the other 89.  Not even when they were introduced were they this low, $30.00 less than regular prices for most of the regular SNP Packs and much more than that for a special one.

Are there any Dietrich Project members that have taken a DNA test, Y-DNA, mtDNA or atDNA here at FTDNA or Ancestry DNA, from Hirschfeld, Hunsrück, Rhineland Palatinate?  If so, what is your Haplogroup?  Our Dietrich haplogroup is E-M35 (Bill Dietrich).

Our Dietrich family according to church death records for Jakob Dietrich, lived in Kischker Hungary.

According to emigration and registration in Vienna, there were three families that were sent to Kischker:

Johann Nicolaus Dietrich and family from Hirschfeld, Pfalz

Johann Michael Dietrich and family cousin of Nicolaus, also from the Hirschfeld area.

Johann Valentine Dietrich and family from Mariental, Pfalz

Are your Dietrich Ancestors from from somewhere else in the Pfalz?

Now our closest DNA matches here at FTDNA are from Dresden, no where near the Pfalz.

I'm puzzled by that because I haven't heard of  German colonists in Hungary coming from Saxony.  I do know that some settled apparently in Siebenburgen/Transylvania.

I'm very surprised that this surname project doesn't have more discussion either in general about the surname Dietrich, or about DNA Haplogroups.
