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.

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.

In the early 1950's at Whitaker Elementary School, Winston-Salem, N.C., my fellow classmate was Nicky Harris; with the shocking death of his father, I came to know the difficulties that he (and another sibling I think), and his mother had lived under. With my enlightenment, my heart then went out to Nicky and his mother.  It's true over the last half century, I might not think of Nicky and his once situation each year, but there also have been many years, I have remembered. If anyone by slight chance knows Nicky Harris, tell him his once classmate Jim (also known as Al) Miller has not forgotten (now of Southport, N.C.) and hopes he and his mom are healthy, healed survivors.
