We invite you to submit your "Pedigree" for this Surname.   Our Surname Project is primarily interested in your Paternal line, as surnames are passed down from father to son, just as the yDNA is passed down. 

If you ARE A MEMBER of this Surname Project at Family Tree DNA, send your pedigree by email to at  The pedigree will then be posted on the Surname Project's Patriarchs Page by or sent to the Project’s Administrator.

Please include the following:
•       Name of project
•       Kit Number
•       Name of person posting pedigree
•       Email address to be posted with pedigree
•       Name, birthdate, birthplace, spouse of Earliest Known Ancestor
•       List each succeeding generation, using only those four items of information (or substitute another item of information if missing an item)

 (If you have more information you would like to share, you may also post a more extended version of your family pedigree on the project website’s Pedigree Forum below)

If you are NOT A MEMBER of this Surname Project at Family Tree DNA, you are welcome to post your pedigree on the Pedigree Forum below.  We hope an interested researcher will see it and contact you to share information.

FYI the following FACTS were verified by me through Census and other courthouse records working with a professional geneoligist who took me into courthouses in Virginia in Fluvanna and Mineral, abstract of will of Frances S. Haislip Herndon's father (his name was John S. Haislip, his wife was Susannah, abstract done by my geneologist) (copies of all my research documentation are available via e mail):
James H. Herndon, b abt 1801 of Fluvannah, Virginia, married Frances S. Haislip on 1 Sept. 1824, ceremony performed by Minister Walker Timberlake, who was Methodist.? Frances S. Haislip was b abt 1807. Ages and birthdates show some variation depending on which census you look at.? The father of James H. Herndon was Joseph Herndon, his mother was Susannah Haislip. (this is not a typo, James H. Herndon's mother's maiden name was Haislip and his wife's maiden name was Haislip).? Following census records before and after the marriage we find other facts.? James H. Herndon and Frances S. Haislip? Herndon had several children; Mary W. Herndon b abt 1831, Lucy W. Herndon b abt. 1832, Susan C. Haislip b abt 1833 or possibly as early as 1825, John M. Herndon b abt 1834, Ann J. Herndon aka Ann H. J. Herndon, b abt. 1835,unverified exact date of birth 08/14/1835,? Eviline J. herndon b abt 1835, , Sarah F. Herndon b abt 1838. I have found no living descendents of James H. Herndon and Frances S. Haislip Herndon.? James and Frances took in other children, at least the two Wilson brothers, James b abt 1853 and George H. b abt. 1857. It is possible that some of the other children in the family were also adopted, possibly Eveline J or Sarah F, based only on the fact that James and Frances not only too in the Wilson Brothers before 1860, but that even after sometime in the early 1860's when we lose track of James H. Herndon, Frances continues to have "others" in her home. Here is where it gets confusing: In 1870 Frances S. Haislip Herndon is a widow. In her home we find her daughter, Ann H. with a last name of? GARD and her grandson Edward F. GARD, b abt 1864 in Fluvannah. In the census of 1880 Frances S. Haislip Herndon remains in Fluvannah with her daughter Ann, now back to being listed as Ann Herndon, and Edw F. now age 15 and last name implied to be Herndon. People now living who knew Edward F. GUARD say the he told them he as an orphan raised by an aunt.? Perhaps I am a descendent of Frances S. Haislip Herndon and James H. Herndon through their daughter Ann H J Herndon. Perhaps Ann married a man named Guard or Gard, perhaps he merely serviced her. Perhaps Frances and Ann took in another orphan. Perhaps other rumours are true, my GGGGrandfather may have been a mysterious and never found Frank Guard, and his wife may have been a mysterious and never found Annie Haislip. Proof as to whether or not I am a Herndon probably lies in the DNA. I have submitted my DNA to Family Tree DNA and am williing to be open with all I have and know with almost anyone.
