To J. Smiley: We have a George Washington Harris in my family.IAW info given me by my uncle, Stanley George Harris, our GWH was the 6th child of Benjamin Harris,son of Uriah Sarah Bowton Harris. Uriah was a founder of Coloma, MI.Ben was born in Providence, R.I. in 1812.He married Ruth Wilkes. In 1848 Benjamin, Ruth, their 6 children and Benjamin's younger brother, Abraham,entered a deed for property in Hagar, Michigan. GWH was born July 14,1844;died in Coloma, MI,1826.Married Mary Clapsaddle from upstate NY. They had 6 children;the 4th, Wilbur John Harris, my grandfather, was born Feb 9,1880;died April 20,1965 in Chicago. Does any of this match any of your family?If so, I have a bit more info on later descendants and earlier antecedents. (eg,William Harris, a founder of Providence RI.)
