Hello everyone.I have been very busy lately and had to set aside my research for a bit.I am working to get caught back up and here is where I am now...I have confirmed that Thomas B Harris born Jan 10,1864-died Feb 10,1948 Allen Co Ky,is in fact my great grandfather.I have ordered and recieved his death certificate.It states his mother was Henrietta Dowell.The only Henrietta I have found in the area was married to a Alex Watkins and an Anderson Andrew Graves.There is in census records a Thomas B Watkins and also a Thomas B Graves both in the home with Henrietta when she was married to each man.Birth dates are either the same or very close.My issue is,are the Thomas B Watkins,Graves,and Harris the same person.I could really use some help sorting this all out...Thanks Yawl

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..

Like Alison Phillips my Harris family has been traced back to Donhead St Mary, Wiltshire where John Harris married Hannah Blandford in August 1831. They moved from there to Chicklade, Wiltshire, where all their children were born, except the last one, born in Codford St Mary, Wiltshire about 1847. My Great Grandfather was their second son, Samuel (born 1834), who married Jane James in Upton Noble, Somerset in 1858. Around 1867, Samuel and family moved to Lambeth. I would be interested to hear from anyone linked to this family, or who may have traced the line before John and Hannah.
