Oh My God! Someone really replied! I am told that my GGGgrandfather and his brother purchased land from their father's widow and founded the town/City. They got into trouble and lost or was losing the land and was helped to get it back by someone by the Harris and others.Is this your GGGgrandfather?
My family names are Smith,Stewart and Harris to name a few.
I hope to hear from you soon,sorry it took so long for me to reply. I will be checking often : )
