Peter and Dority "Dolly" Hart

"Descendants of Peter and Dority Hart 1740-1995 Virginia and North Carolina and Allied Families" by Ruth Gibbs Hart and Karen L. Cooper

Dority "Dolly" Hart (maiden name unknown) was born ca 1745 and died between 1810-1820 in Prathers Creek, Ashe County, North Carolina (present day Alleghany County, North Carolina).

She married ca mid 1760's to Peter Hart Sr. (born ca 1740 and died between 1814-1820 Prathers Creek, Ashe County, North Carolina.) The name "Dority Hart" is found on a property deed in Grayson County, Virginia where she and Peter sold land in 1806, Ashe County, NC to their son Peter JR Hart.

Son John Hart's August 18, 1855 death record for Meadow Creek, Whitley County, Kentucky names his mother as "Dolly" or "Sally". Note; this name is very hard to read and can be either of these two names, however, I make it out as "Dolly".

It has also been suggested by a researcher, that her maiden name might have been "Cantor" or by other researchers that it might have been "Doherty" instead of her given name.
Proof is needed.

Note; There are a number of families named Dority in North Central South Carolina. It seems likely that Peter Hart and Dority may have been either from South Carolina and were married there or lived there before the Revolution.

Dority and Peter were the parents of nine children.
1, James Hart born 1768
2, Mark Hart born Abt. 1770, married to Barbara Kirk on September 17, 1800 in Grayson County Virginia.
3, Margaret (Mahala) Hart born Bet. 1772 - 1774, NC, married Abt. 1796 to Stephen Floyd.
4, William Hart born Abt. 1775, Montgomery/Grayson CO., VA, married Abt. 1798, VA or NC to Mary Cadwell (Caldwell).
5, Peter Jr. Hart born 1780, NC, married Hannah Poe, May 18, 1801, Jefferson, Ashe CO., NC.
6, John Hart born February 20, 1780, Grayson CO., VA, first marriage to Permelia Morgan, Abt. 1800, Grayson.
Second marriage, Lydia Rains, May 10, 1827, Whitley County Kentucky.
7, Nancy Hart born Abt. 1784, Grayson CO., VA, married to Andrew Hash, February 25, 1805, Grayson CO., VA.
8, Stephen Hart born 1785, Montgomery (now Grayson) CO., VA., married to Sarah Bradford, May 30, 1805, Grayson CO., VA.
9, Unknown Son that may have been David born after 1785.

This report prepared by 23 and Me. shows the genetic heritage of Clifford Harlan Hullinger. The Native American heritage comports with our paper genealogy. Clif's maternal gg great grandmother was Ianahanna Poe, who was part or full Native American. 23 and Me estimates Clif's Native American ancestor to be born between 1770 and 1650, which includes Ianhanna Poe and four of her ancestors.

Thanks for the links Craig!  The story about Missouri America was great.  For a little on the Hart family history in Pennsylvania I suggest reading the story posted on Find-a-Grave for John Hart and his wife Susanna Rush Hart.  John emigrated from Oxfordshire and bought land from William Penn:  "By deeds of lease and release dated October 12, 1681, he (John Hart) purchased of William Penn of Worminghurst, county of Surry, England, Proprietary of Pennsylvania, 1000 acres of land to be laid out in the Province of Pennsylvania." John Hart was a member of Colonial Assembly from Philadelphia county, 1683 and 1684, and signed the first "Form of Government" 2mo. 2, 1683"  Susanna was a descendent of John "Old Trooper" Rush who served under Cromwell in the English Civil War and was the ancestor of Dr. Benjamin Rush, signer of the Declaration of Independence.

The Haplogroups below are for Clifford Hullinger.  All children of Pearl Harlan share the maternal haplogroup.  And all of the female ancestors and descendants on the maternal line from Pearl share this same Haplogroup.  

All males descended from John Hullinger and all of their paternal ancestors share the paternal halplogroup. The paternal haplogroup is also referred to as j2a4h2 and we have more info about it at

Harlan Genealogy

Genealogists are continually researching and publishing their findings on the internet. We can now trace our ancestral lines much further back in history. I don’t know about the accuracy of these sites but they are well prepared and presented.

Our Harlan Genealogy was first developed by Alpheus Harlan in the early 1900’s. Information about it can be found at The Harlan genealogy had
begun with James HARLAND #1 who was born about 1625 in Bishoprick, Durham, England.

Pearl Harlan Hullinger 1895-1993
Our Harlan paternal line now goes four more generations back before we run out of information on our Harlan name line. Each blue highlighted text are links back to the on line genealogy.  

Most of the new information comes from We thank them for their work.


Our new deeper Harlan genealogy. You can click on the blue highlighted link to go to the source site.

Henry Harland abt 1522, d. abt 1580 Sutton Hall - Sutton Hall and Huby, in the North Riding of Yorkshire: a portion of the property was in the family before the Restoration, and another granted to Captain Richard Harland for his services in the royalist army at the battle of Marston Moor. Also the Middleton estate near Darlington, in the county of Durham, which has been possessed for some time by the family.

James Harland, b. 1570, Bishophrick, Bainbridge, Durham, England, d. Abt 1615, Bishophrick, Bainbridge, Durham

William Harland , b. 1594, of Bishophrick, Bainbridge, Durham, England, d. 29 Jul 1651, Sunderland, Durham, England

James Harlan  (Listed #1 in the Harlan Genealogy, this text from the Harlan Genealogy) was born about 1625 in Bishoprick, Durham, England. He died in England. He was buried in England. From "History and Genealogy of the Harlan Family" by Alpheus Harlan- "James Harland, Yeoman and member of the Episcopal Church, was b. about the year 1625 in the "Bishoprick, Nigh Durham, England," and is the earliest paternal ancestor known to the family in America bearing the name Harlan. He lived and d. an Englishman, and was bur. upon English soil, no one to-day knows where. Tradition says that the name of his father was William.  (The new info says he died on 17 Feb 1680 and is buried at Bishophrick, Bainbridge, Durham, England.


Wealthy people and nobles had more children than other people. Their children had more healthy children who survived, and so on. Only a few children could be rich nobles.  Eventually most of their descendants became average people. Most people alive today have these wealthy people in their genealogy.

And the Harlans had some famous ancestors as shown on the listing below.  We descend from famous Charlemagne and a number of other famous and infamous Kings, Queens, Viscounts, Earls, Counts and Barons. This line of descent jumps back and forth between men and women.

And that will buy you a cup of coffee if you have the coin. Still, it is fun to check it out.
