The Morehouse Surname Project
Three objectives, from narrow to broad:(1) To confirm that descendants in various lines from Pierpont Morehouse (ca 1776-after 1837) of Bradford Co., Pennsylvania, share the same Y chromosome haplotype.(2) Assuming objective #1 is achieved, to determine whether such Y chromosome haplotype is shared by descendants of Thomas Morehouse (to Wethersfield, Connecticut, by 1640) and by other Morehouse branches in North America not yet connected to the Thomas Morehouse family.(3) To determine whether all persons named Morehouse (including persons now living in the United Kingdom) share a common ancestry, and to determine a likely place of origin for the surname.
