Thanks for the reply.
As I said Urial Holmes is my Great Great Grand pa so Sallie is GG grand Ma.
I know Urial died 1855, Jackson Co ,Mo and Sallie yrs later.
They had many kids, Joseph B 1842 Married Tabitha Cummings (she was D Boone's Great Great Grand daughter) their son William Grover 1888-1976 was my G father and his son was my Dad William Wayne Holmes 1917-2012.
I known little of Harris family except said to come from Virginia as was Urial. Urial also had a son Urial B 1846, he and Joseph served in Civil War together. Richard Harris and Phoebe are Sallies parents. Do you know more of what happened to her siblings? When did Richard die?
Do you have other info on they family prior to the 1850 census when they are in Hawkins Co?
I have a public Ancestry site so you can see what I have on the family Holmes. I look forward to your reply on the Harris', the estate and law suit and any thing else.
thanks again. if I can help you in any way let me know.
