Personal Information    |    Media    |    Notes    |    All

  • Name Henry Back 
    • YDNA evidence ties Henry to Harman Back Sr. through matches to Harman's sons Harman Jr. and Joseph. https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/bach-to-back/about

      Multiple descendants of Henry Back Sr. through his sons Henry Back Jr. of Letcher County Kentucky and John Back of Breathitt County Kentucky have participated in Y DNA testing at the 67 marker level. They all match Y DNA to a descendant of Harman Back Jr. of Fayette County Kentucky and a descendant of Joseph Back of Garrard County. The Back men share a unique and unusual haplogroup, E-FT137267 (E-V22) and also have a deletion (no DNA) at marker DYS425, an unusual occurrence.

    • Elizabeth was not yet married when her father wrote his will in 1762 but was married to Henry Back when the estate was settled in 1773. The estate documents prove the marriage of Elizabeth Huffman to Henry Back. The Huffman Bible and the English Catechism prove Elizabeth Back who died after 1830 in Harlan County Kentucky was the wife of Henry Back of Culpeper County Virginia.

    John Huffman estate settlement
    John Huffman estate settlement
    Madison Co VA Will Book 1 pages 221-225, settlement with heirs of John Huffman, including Henry Back and John Back as the husbands of two of the daughters. Henry Back bought two books from the estate. Was one of them what the Back family calls "The Catechism?" John Huffman carefully worded his will to make provision for two large German Bibles so it would make sense that he would have other religious books.

    The name of Henry Back in the inside back cover of the Church of England book of catechisms used to record the names and dates of his family. High resolution scans of this and other pages can be viewed on the Breathitt County Library website.

    COUSINS, NOT BROTHERS
    COUSINS, NOT BROTHERS
    06 Feb 1785 is Henry Back Junior's date of birth, recorded in the catechism book that served as his family’s Bible for recording births and deaths, currently in the archives of the Breathitt County Library, Jackson, Kentucky.

    18 June 1785 is Aaron’s date of birth, recorded on his tombstone.

    Aaron was born just a little over four months after Henry and therefore cannot share the same mother. Henry is the son of Henry Back and Elizabeth Huffman Back. Aaron is the son of John Back and Margaret Huffman Back. They were double first cousins, not brothers. Aaron is not listed with his sisters on the deed disposing of his mother’s land because he was just 17 years old at the time.
    Y111 test result interpretation
    Y111 test result interpretation
    Three descendants of Haman Back Sr. of Culpeper Co VA and Garrard Co KY, one each from Harman Jr., Joseph, and Henry, have received Y111 marker test results. This graphic from their FTDNA accounts shows the likelihood of sharing a common male ancestor within eight generations, which is how far these testers are from Harman Sr. This precise prediction is possible because of the number of markers tested. Those who have tested fewer markers will have a less exact prediction.

  • Notes 
    • Both Henry Sr. and Elizabeth appear to have been descendants of immigrants to the "Germanna Colony" in Virginia
    • An article in Pennsylvania Folklife includes a scan of the original entry along with a translation of a list in Church records in German recording persons leaving for Georgia. There is no record of their arrival, only of their intention to depart.

      The emigrants from the Freudenberg Parish in the year 1738 were listed in the Burial Register of the Parish by the pastor. Otto Bäumer published the material in the periodical ?Heimatland: Beilage zur Siegener Zeitung?, in 1927. Don Yoder translated the article and published it in Pennsylvania Folklife, Winter 1969-70, Vol. XIX, No.2, p.46

      "As information I wished to write down on these pages that today, the 13th of March, 1738, there left for Georgia, the new island under the protection of His Majesty the King of England, out of this land and parish, with the knowledge and consent of the authorities of this our land, the following named persons, some of them householders with wife and children, others single male persons, namely:
