Surnames: Harris - Harriss - McPhatridge - McFatridge - Thomas Woolsey - Dean - NEED INFO ON MRS. MCPHATRIDE WHO'S MAIDEN NAME WAS HARRIS.
Revolutionary Pension papers of MARTHA (THOMAS) HARRIS on her husband's Revolutionary war service has one document which talks of a Mr. MCPHATRIDGE - might be spelled now MCFATRIDGE - anyway the wife of this Mr. MCPHATRIDGE was the sister to JOHN HARRIS. JOHN HARRIS b. 1760 North Carolina and died 18 August 1816 near Bowling Green, Warren County, Kentucky. JOHN HARRIS & MARTHA THOMAS were married 31 October 1781 in St Clair's - Sinclair's Bottom, Washington County, Virginia. - Anyway the Pension Letter was written from Abingdon, Washington County, Virginia and in the letter it states that this Mr. & Mrs. MCPHATRIDGE lived 18 miles away which might be Smyth County, Virginia? Chilhowie, Smyth County, Virginia is 19 miles from Abingdon, Washington County, Virginia. Again the Pension Letter was written from Abingdon, Washington County, Virginia. Both Mr. & Mrs. MCPHATRIDGE, were very elderly, still living in 1854 except Mrs. MCPHATRIDGE mind was going. JOHN HARRIS & MARTAH (THOMAS) HARRIS lived in Washington, (now Smyth County, Virginia), from their marriage, (1781) to (1789), and then move to Garrard County, Kentucky. Am bringing up the fact that a Mr. & Mrs. MCPHATRIDGE lived 18 miles from Adingdon, Washington County, Virginia when the Pension Letter was written on April 21, 1854, and that the wife of Mr. MCPHATRIDGE or MCFATRIDGE was the sister to JOHN HARRIS. Letter also talks of THOMAS WOOLSEY who married MARTHA THOMAS to JOHN HARRIS and that THOMAS WOOLSEY had a daughter by the name of DEAN and another daughter who took the book he kept his marriages in - to Missouri. - NEED INFORMATION ON MR. & MRS. ____? (HARRIS) MCPHATRIDGE, probably of Chilhowie, Smyth County, Virginia. Thanks - Don Martin Thomas
