African American Harris family in Laurens County

Posted: 7 Aug 2013 9:01AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Harris, Craig
My father's entire family is from Laurens County. I have a good network of people on his mother's side but have pretty much hit a brick wall on his father's side.
My paternal grandfather is named Thomas Harris, I am looking for information on his father's family.
His father is listed as both Mosely and Doc Harris. We believe he had a brother named John. John may have lived some time in Charlotte, NC and/or upstate NY. Doc married Ora Craig and had two sons, Herbert Lee and Thomas. It is our understanding that Ora died either during childbirth or shortly there after Thomas was born.
We thought Doc left right after Ora died in 1917, but the 1920 census shows that Doc still lived with his two boys and Ora's mother Susie Craig and Susie's sister Millie Dillard.
We do know that Doc ended up in Philadelphia, got remarried and had another son, Mosely Jr.

If anyone has any info on Doc and his family, it would be greatly appreciated. You can reply here or email me at anissadharris@gmail.com.
