“As a gift to a friend of mine I had his DNA tested. His grandfather went by the name of Henry Lewis Wilson.The first record I have been able to find of him is in Garland Ct Arkansas in 1870. it states he was born in 1847 in Va. May now be West Va. Henry married in Yell Co. and died sometime after 1920. His son told a story that his fathers real name was Harding.After taking the test there no match to Wilson but to Harding's. The test I have is out to 111 places the others have not tested beyond 67 Kit's # 308762 and 864934. The trees for these people indicate the match may be further back than they have researched. I believe Henry for some reason left his home and changed his name. I also believe he named his children after family. These names I have seen in various Harding families. Marcus or Mark, Alexander, Albert, Berk, Hattie, Bessie, Willie, Henry,Mary. I would appreciate any assistance if these names are in your families and you may be missing a Harding family member. Possible a black sheep. Henry was a wagon maker,merchant and farmer.According to newspaper accounts he had a problem with alcohol on occasion. This may have led to his leaving his family and changing his name he may have even had trouble with the law. So many different reasons I have explored along with records. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you, Sharon”

Joined this group because Have 24 Y-12 Matches with 0 GD to men with spellings of Hardin, Harden, Harding. Great grandfather is Hardin Edward Mackey of IN and Hardin's father was John Mackey of KY. It was passed down that Mackey was not the spelling of the original surname. BigY match is with a Stewart. Have no Mackey spellings at any level of testing for matches. Tested Y-111, BigY, FF. Have no matches with Y-111 level, Y-67 have match with Bragg at 4 GD and Smith 7 GD, Y-37 match with Dove 2 GD and Bragg at 3 GD, Toplis 4 GD. I was wondering if any of the Hardin's have matches with any of these other surnames of any spellings.

Benjamin Hardin (1678 - 1734, VA) m. Sarah Stanley...
Those of us descended from the North Carolina "Hickory Creek" Hardins know the above names well.
But--and forgive me if I step on anyone's toes here--I have never, EVER, in 22 years of Hardin family research, found a shred of unambiguous documentary evidence to connect the Hickory Creek Hardins solidly back through Joseph Hardin (1704) to Benjamin Hardin (1678). Not one single piece.
Yes, we can all connect to each other through DNA. And yes, we have the English marriage documents for Benjamin and Sarah, and the American will(s) showing some overlap between Joseph's son's names and the names of the men who settled the Hickory Creek area. But that's it. Nothing that couldn't be coincidence, and ABSOLUTELY nothing that connects the American Hardins back to Benjamin 1678 in England.
I would politely advise everyone in the Hickory Creek HHHDNA group to reconsider listing him as their MRCA.

Kit # 493142. If that helps you any. I have family documents I can share from my line. Paternal and Maternal. Which I am open to do. Family based in Bucks UK on the paternal side. Berks UK on maternal side. REALLY new to all this kind of research and finding it all a little mid boggling. Y111, MtDNA and FF Tests done and posted.
