Documentation is sparse for new immigrants that settled their families in unincorporated areas of Georgia while it was developing as a colony. A study founded on the mtDNA Haplogroup H. Ongoing DNA autosomal chromosomal mapping on https://dnapainter.com/profile/250063# Harveys of Bryan County GA.


mtDNA Descendants

  • Mapping Familial atDNA Connections [1]

Note: The following comparisons to Amanda Torrey is reflected in the mtDNA on this branch of the family tree. A non-match of autosomal segments on Gedmatch does not mean there is not relationship. A Cousin "removed" doesn't seem to register, but the relationship still exists. Though the Relationship and Me tool can only be considered a Reference, it can point the way to more meaningful matches that apply to the Ancestor. The following is for your convenience to begin or validate your own Segment mapping:

1. Elizabeth (Unknown) Harvey & Richard Harvey Sr.
2. Rebecca (Harvey) DeVaughn (abt.1780-1852)
4. Isaac Harvey (abt.1786-aft.1860) [1]
5. John M. Harvey Sr. (1787-1861) [2]

Susie Does not match with Amanda Torrey, but according to "Relationship with Me" she is a 5th Cousin once removed. More Research is needed to DNA validate. Maaybe we can find more descendants from John and Triangulate them.

6. Susannah (Harvey) Bragg (abt.1788-1861) Amanda (Moyer) Torrey
6. Susannah (Harvey) Bragg (abt.1788-1861) [3]
7. Sarah Jane (Harvey) Williams (abt.1790-abt.1865) [4]
12. Richard Thomas Harvey Jr. (abt. 1800-1860 [5]
12. Richard Thomas Harvey Jr. (abt. 1800-1860 [6]
12. Richard Thomas Harvey Jr. (abt.1800-1860)]] [7]

Defining Mitochondria and it's connection to Genetic Genealogy

Mitochondria: https://www.genome.gov/genetics-glossary/Mitochondria
Haplogroup: For genealogical research, you are assured of ruling out lineage mismatches for paper trail comparisons. You will also achieve the highest level of confidence possible that your mtDNA full sequence matches are related to you within the genealogical time frame.

H1 encompasses an important fraction of Western European mtDNA, reaching its local peak among contemporary Basques and appearing at a high frequency among other Iberians and North Africans. See: [2]

Important point is that the Landrys were from the Rhone-Alps area. The Rhone is the direct connection between Brittany and the Basques in Southern France.

Research Notes

These Children were listed by Barry Sweetman and show differences from the above list:

  • Margaret Harvey b: 1777
  • Mary Elizabeth Harvey b: 1780 in Georgia, United States
  • Mary Ann Harvey b: 1782 in Black Creek, Bryan, Georgia, United States
  • John Harvey b: 1787 in Black Creek, Bryan, Georgia, United States
  • Nancy A Harvey b: 1795 in Bryan, Georgia, United States
  • Sarah Harvey b: 1796 in Bryan, Georgia, United States
  • Samuel Harvey b: 1798 in Bryan, Georgia, United States
  • Richard Harvey b: 1800 in Bryan, Georgia, United States
  • Emanuel Harvey b: 1804 in Bryan, Georgia, United States

In 1823, Richard died. No will has been found. In the 1827 land lottery, Elizabeth obtained land in Lee County as the widow of her husband. Her county of residence is listed as Bryan County.[8]

After Richard Harvey passed away in 1823, John Harvey (believed to be the brother of Richard Harvey) applied for letters of administration on the estate and effects of Richard Harvey, Sr, deceased. [9] Later, for some reason, James Bird of Lowndes County, Georgia became his executor. The land in the 11th district of Irwin County, Georgia, Lot #155 that Richard Harvey, Sr. drew in the 1820 land lottery was transferred to James Bird on 25 Sep 1827 from Richard’s heirs. John Harvey, Hiram Waller, Will Williams, Richard Harvey (Jr.), Emanuel Harvey, Isaac Harvey and Elizabeth Harvey signed the document. The document was recorded 5 Feb 1859 (see attached).


Sometime after 1827, Elizabeth traveled to Florida to visit or live with her daughter. She died in Florida (see research notes below). [10] [11] The exact location of the graves of Elizabeth and Richard are not known.
