-thanks for your inquiry. Unfortunately, I am having a lot of problems tracking down my Harris family. I'm almost positive that William Riley Harris' father was named James; I know his mother was Emeline Ferrell. William Riley(my paternal grandfather), or Riley, as he was called, was married twice, I believe. The first wife was (supposedly) Neely Winkler. His second wife, Cornelia Ferrell (don't know if she was related to Emeline) was my grandmother. Other than the children's names, I have very scant information. Perhaps we connect somehow. There were quite a few Harris families in Hawkins County at the same time. They must be somehow related. Feel free to email me personally and we can chat.
