Rush S. Harris

Classification: Query
Surnames: HARRIS, TIDWELL
I am searching for the parents (and further ancestry) of Rush S. HARRIS. He was born 11 Jan 1861, in Mississippi. He married Louisa A R TIDWELL around 1887 in Mississippi. They moved to Gregg County, Texas before 1889 where his signature is on a Poll Tax form. I believe it was a petition to the state government for some reason, but I don't have it catalogued that way (and only saved the page with his signature). He died 1 May 1900, in Texas (possibly Gregg County). I have his burial listed as Cain Cemetery, Lansing Swith, Harrison County, Texas. I was wondering if anyone had some long lost relation and could help me further his ancestry. One interesting item is that it is rumored that he had one leg shot off in Mississippi before their move to Texas. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Cheryl
