I am trying to find information on my 3rd great grandfather Gideon Harris. He was supposedly born around 1810 in Kanawha Co VA. He married Mahala F Lanham on July 8 1835. She was born around 1816 in Nelson Co VA. They had at least 11 children. I am through their daughter Nancy B Harris Martin. I have all kinds of information about the Lanham family but nothing at all on the Harris family. I would like to know who his parents are. I have his family on several census years from 1840 up until 1870. I also have not been able to find a record of his or Mahala's death. They were both alive in the 1870 census in Putnam Co WV with their 3 youngest children in the home. I am just really looking for Gideon's parents and some kind of record of his and his wifes death.
