Does anyone know anything about Harris from Dames Point, Mayort, Fla.
My grandfather was Frances E Harris m. Maggie Mcdowell. I'm researching Harris, Mcdowell, Cason and Jones from this area. Thank you, Doris Direnzo

My husband was James Kimmons Harris. His father, Mack Kimmons Harris of Concord, Cabarrus, North Carolina. I have the book "Ancestors and Descendants of Robert Harris, Sr (1702 - 1788) compiled by Marris Harris Stratton of Charlotte, NC. I may be able to find one of your ancestors by searching the book.
It is dedicated to The Reverend Joseph Marcus Harris who spent many hours in the collection and preservation of our family history.
this book is a collection of information received from Isaac l Harris of Havana Cuba; Joseph Winslow Mehaffey, Concord, North Carolina and Reverend Joseph Marcus Harris

John, I can also trace my ancestry back to the PA Harris. See my forum called The Pennsylvania Harrises. Also, would you please email me at

I can trace my Harris line to Robert Harris (1787-1865) of Juniata County, PA. His father was probably John, who died in Juniata County (then Mifflin County) ca 1805, and supposedly had a son, Robert.. John lived near Captain Thomas Harris, whose brother was William of Harford County, MD. I believe William's and Captain Thomas's father was Robert, son of Edward Harris and Flora Douglas. I would like to make the definite connection between my ancestor, Robert, and the Edward Harris line..

Hi, for those that have Harris ancestors that served in the revolution from Va and NC heritagequestonline has a section on revolutionary records that have many family histories attached to the land grants. I went into the records and just put in the surname Harris and it brought up every record of Harris that served from that area one record that I found interesting was Jonathan Harris from rowan county NC
If you have home access through your local library give this data base a look

I have been reading with interest all the comments on the origins of the name Harris. There have been several mentions of French/Norman names & Scottish nobility from various books, but has anyone actually traced their family back to these origins? I am having trouble getting our line back past the coalminer Hugh Harris born circa 1770 in Kirkconnel, Dumfries. Coalminers were vertual slaves, owned by the mine owners, which is a long way from lords and land owners in those books. The documentation in the 19th century is very good, with the Scottish certificates giving valuable information, Any suggestions on how to proceed backwards gratefully received.

Hit that "Friend Request" button then lost private e-mail link to you. Computers drive me nuts. Thank you for your Ephraim Drake Harris response; and note: I can't spell. I live up the road from you off Long Beach Road (to Oak Island) near Southport. Ephrain's 1816 possible wil?. Does he mention his Ridenhour grandchildren or former son-in-law Henry Miller, even if negatively; or anything about Henry Miller's wife, Ephrain's daughter Barbarah Miller, especially her death? Jim P.S. Your Bennets. I descend Bute/Warren Cos, N.C., Malone's Mill Creek, Rev. War Ens. Wood Malone who served under Capt Bennett Wood; later Baptist Rev. Bennet Wood who removed to north Georgia to preach to the Indians. Wood Malone's widow Barsheba wed Wm. Noyal Norswothy. Son Thomas Malone, Sr., land clerk Raleigh, circa 1803 or 1805 (Alabama Biography) with slaves via Indian country, removed to Ft. St. Stephens, Ala., as US Land Office agent, US magistrate, Asst. US Indiam agent, and with Lt. Gaines helped arrest Arron Burr. His wife was Mary S. Malone, maiden name unknown. Seemingly Bennet Wood may have been Wood Malone's kin. His father was John Malone of Malones Bridge, Dinwiddie Co., Va., and perhaps a mile up-stream, Malone's Crossing (ford). Possibly his wife was a Wood or Bennet? The home of 1600's Gen. Abraham Wood still stands, perhaps two to five miles away.
