I saw this post and noticed the name you referred to as being an estate was J.W. Harris. My father and grandfather were Joseph Walker Harris and the old home place was, what became "Boatwright's orchid" on Rt. 15 in Buckingham Va. near Alfa.
If you have any connection to this family, please contact me as I have hit a HUGE brick wall at the same point every time I try to proceed with the family search.
My grandfather's father was listed as Samuel Travis Harris killed in a tractor accident shortly after my grandfather (b-1895) was born, although his younger sister Sadie (not sure if she was a Harris or Flippen was born after. Their mother remarried a Flippen, having more children. Her maiden name, I have been told was Jamerson, but this is where the walls go up.
