Hi all! I belong to Stephen Harris (1795, Georgia) and Phebe Hawkins (1798, Georgia). That's where I'm stuck. Our Harris', as far back as I can go, were from Georgia before the Civil War but then about the time Hilliard Harris served (1862) in the Arkansas militia, the family settled in Bradly County, Arkansas. My grandfather was the first to move to Louisiana and settled in Calcasieu Parish.
My Harris line traces back past Robert Harris and Dorthy Wiley maternally. I have done the Ancestry DNA test. I haven't gotten my results yet.
Hello all, I am researching my Harris line and have hit a brick wall. I have gotten as far back as Kimbrell Harris born 1813 in TN (not exactly sure where). He was residing in Smith Co. Tn in 1838 I know for sure. He married Prudence James and they traveled to Phillips Co. AR. Prudence died and Kimbrell remarried. Kimbrell had a sister Fannie and Martha that both married a John Hutches. I beleve that he also had a brother named George W. Harris.
Kimbrell's parents are shown on the census to have been born in NC. Looking at tax records from Smith Co. TN, I have found a John and Mary Harris living in an area close to the James Family. Kimbrell's first son was named John Alexander. I believe John from his Grandpa Harris and Alexander from his Grandpa James.
If anyone has any leads for me to follow, it sure would be appreciated. I have not done the DNA thing yet but plan on it soon. Again any info is appreciated.
Hello Harris researchers! Does anyone have any info on Samuel Harris, born in NH around 1777? He married Sarah (Sally) Holmes. He's the last person in my Harris line. He was a Jr., but I haven't been able to find his father. Obituaries say the family was of Scots-Irish descent and started off in MA. This line of Harris's went from NH to NY to MI.
We're in group 22 of the Harris DNA Project, matching up with a Bryan Harris b 1800 in Canada and a William Harris b 1798 in Wayne Co PA.
Looking for info on A. Harris (might be Alexander). There may be more info out there on Thomas C. Harris, born in 1798 in Tennessee, married Mary McMurtry in 1820 in Washington Co. Missouri....They had 9 children.....Narcisses Clementine in 1827, John in 1826, James C. in 1828, L.E. Erasmus in 1830, William in 1834, Martha Jane in 1836 or 1828, Thomas Jr. 1838 or 1820, Moses O. in 1840 and Patton in 1842....My line is the L.E. Erasmus Harris line...
Any and all info welcomed and appreciated.
I am seeking information on Fred Harris b. 1835 Alabama. Fred married Lou Harris b. 1845 Alabama. Fred's parents were from North or South Carolina. Fred and Lou had six children: Henry Harris, Callie Harris, Sallie Harris, Bossie Harris, Mamie Harris and Pumpsey Harris. Mamie Harris is my Great Great Grandmother. I would like to know the names of Fred and Lou's parents as well as Lou's maiden name. I would also like to know what plantation in Alabama that Fred and Lou were slaves on. Any information will be appreciated. Thanks.
I am seeking information on Henry H. Harris, born 1865 Darlington Co, SC: died 10 Apr 1935, buried at the Cypress Cemetery, Cypress Crossroads, Lee County, South Carolina. His mother was Amanda Jackson. I believe his father was Henry Harris, a slave owner. Amanda Jackson was one of his slaves.I am trying to find the slave owner, Henry Harris, in a cemetery, or a death record, or something else about him. I'm trying to get behind that Harris line.Does anyone have access to Darlington and Lee County, SC records?
I am seeking descendants of Peter Harris and Cindia Harris. In Brunswick County VA around 1900. Their children were: Joseph, Maude, Junius, Ned, James, Henrietta, Bessie, Carrie, Rosa, Ruth, Sydnor, and Polly. Peter died in 1916 from an injury. They are both buried in the Good Hope Baptist Church cemetery in the Blackridge area of Brunswick County. Junius was my father.
