ACREE PROJECT LINEAGES

Fifty participants in the Acree Surname DNA Project, identified alphanumerically, have been tested. Their genetic profiles may be viewed on our Project's webpages at the Family Tree DNA (FTDNA) testing firm and here. Their paternal lines, excluding ancestors born after 1900, follow.

Thirty-four of our participants, constituting the majority "Virginia Acrees" within our project, descend mostly from William Acree (c1710-c1767) of Hanover Co., Virginia. They have matching test results ("haplotypes") that include a rare fractional allele ("microallele") and show 0-3 differences within 46 markers. Their lines are grouped below by four of William's sons - John, Abraham, William and Joshua. Two of these participants have the surname Williamson but descend from a known Acree adoptee. Four lineages are incomplete, including the lines of participants with the surnames Brown, Peel and Collier, whose ancestral relationships to the Virginia Acrees are unknown.

Three of our participants, who descend from a different William Acree (1752-1833), have matching test results that distinguish them. This William, progenitor of the "Maryland Acrees," was born in Maryland, moved as a youth with his widowed mother to North Carolina, and, after raising his own family there, migrated with them to Wayne Co., Kentucky in about 1804. His deduced father descended from an Akers family of British origin who settled in southern New Jersey in the late 17th century. Our two Akers participants, one living in the US and one in the UK, are associated with these descendants, having reasonably close (but inconclusive) test results. Our Dacre participant is also loosely associated with them genetically.

Three of our participants, who are believed to descend from Jacob Acra (c1710-1772) of Middlesex Co., Virginia - progenitor of the "Virginia Acras," have test results that distinguish them not only from other participants but also from each other. So, Jacob's ancestral haplotype remains undefined.

Our other seven tested participants, whose individual circumstances are explained below, have different test results.

Robert was orphaned as a young boy in the aftermath of the Civil War and appears to have been raised within his sister's family, who moved from Alabama to Texas in the 1870s.

BIRTH MOTHERSLydia L. CanterburyMargaret J. ReynoldsFrances L. Acree"Polly" CleekElizabeth AcreeAgnes Shearin

* Note: Unlike the other participants grouped under this heading, Acree020's genetic profile is significantly different from that of the "Virginia Acrees," a profile that his close cousin Acree039 (above) shares. He therefore could not have descended from Lewis Acree, as Acree039 did, through a strictly patrilineal line. Revealingly, his profile instead matches the profiles of two men with the surname Hammack. That physical evidence, combined with Peter C. Acree's marriage record and census data, indicate that Peter's father must have been John Hammack, the first husband of Peter's mother, Frances, a daughter of Lewis Acree who re-married after John died in the 1850s. It appears that when Peter himself married in 1871 he began using both his mother's surname and the middle initial of his mother's brother, Peter C. Acree, who had been living with him in his mother's and step-father's household, thereby becoming his uncle's namesake. As with Acree039, Acree020's lineage lacks documentation beyond Lewis Acree.

* Note: On the basis of an Akers DNA match and circumstantial evidence, it has been deduced that William Acree's father was William Akers, a member of a British family whose patrilineal ancestor came to Hunterdon Co., New Jersey, in the late 17th century. Earlier lineage is undetermined. Documentation is sparse and inconsistent. William Akers' parents are alleged to have been Simon and Mary Akers. Simon is usually identified as a son of an earlier Simon, who was the son of the William Akers, who arrived in New Jersey from England (presumably via the port of Philadelphia) in the 1690s. Sometimes, a Harold Akers has been appended as an earlier emigrant from London, extending the line a further generation.

PATERNAL LINELuther Morris AcreeJasper Newton Acree*

BIRTH MOTHERSKatherine Pearl PoynterMary Haley Cravens

* Note: Jasper Newton Acree (1839-1911), a celebrated Union soldier and ancestor of many Acrees, was an orphan whose father is unknown. Circumstantial evidence indicates that his mother was Rhoda Wigginton, who married Lewis Acree in Rhea Co., Tennessee, in 1825 and had children with him. Lewis was probably a descendent of Abraham Acree of Caroline Co., Virginia (above), through Abraham's son James, who migrated to that area of Tennessee. Lewis died before the 1840 census and Rhoda died soon afterward, leaving her young children to be raised by foster families. In his Civil War pension application and in a published newspaper article describing his wartime recollections, Jasper related that his father (whoever he understood him to be) died before he was born, that his mother died when he was four years old, and that his half-brother was killed during the war. The identical Y-DNA profiles of the above two descendents match haplotypes of living men having the surnames Lawson and Jenkins, whose patrilineal ancestors resided in southeastern Tennessee. Several men with those surnames appear in the 1840 census of the Bledsoe/Hamilton Co. area, where Jasper was apparently born. His father was probably one of them.

Widowed Rebecca is not known to have remarried, but she gave birth to two additional children in the late 1860s, including Charles. Acree005's test results closely match those of a man whose patrilineal ancestor was William Reader, a neighbor of Rebecca who died in 1866. It is a reasonable deduction that one of his two mature sons - Nathan or Allen, who lived nearby, was the father of Charles.
