I have a Reuben Harris who married Nancy Burke in Albemarle Co. Virginia December 21, 1799. They had a son, Reuben, Jr., born ca. 1810 in Virginia, married Malinda Thomas in Caldwell co. Ky. 1832. I am looking for Reuben's parents & siblings. Do you have either of these names in your Harris records? I have had little luck to date in finding my Harrises. Thanks for your time. Hope to hear from you soon. Bev

No, I don't know how he came to have the middle name of Shelton. I do know he first married Nancy C. Jordan with whom he had seven known children. After her death he married Ellen N. Berry in Page County, Virginia in 1866. By the time my g-grandfather Oscar Lewis Harris was born in 1878 the family was living in Miami County, Ohio where William died in 1894.

Thanks for the reply. Do you have any idea of how William got his given middle name "Shelton"?

Do you have any information as to what happened to Betsey Harris and Nathan Mills (b.1750 in Albemarle Co and d. 4 Feb 1804)? Nathan is my ancestor and I can't find out much information about him. I know they had one son named Western (b.25 June 1786), but don't know if they had any other ones or what happened to them. Did they always live with the Harris' on their farm? Do you have any documents that show who Nathan's parents were? Would appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks.

I'm sorry. I don't have anything on Nathan Mills at all except that he married Betsey. I don't have a direct line to HARRIS either. I only seek info on HARRIS in regard to my ALPHIN lines in Albemarle.

Elaine,

Mary Ferguson who married Henry Harris, was a sister to my Ferguson ancestor, Hawkey Ferguson. Their father was William Ferguson of Albemarle Co.

He (Hawkey Ferguson) married an Elizabeth Norris of Albemarle, and their daughter, Martha Ferguson, married Randolph Harris of Albemarle. Randolph was named in his father in law's will and too, in the will of Richard Snow as a guardian of sorts for the inheritance of Richard's daughter, Saluda Snow Coleman.

I have often wondered if there was any familial connection between Randolph Harris and his wife's uncle Henry Harris.

To make matters worse in terms of research, the son of Randolph Harris and Martha Ferguson, Hawkey Harris, married a Columbia Norris....... ;-)

If any of these folks sound familiar to you, please let me know. I haven't yet located any information on Randolph Harris' parents. He was shown on census records as Randolph C Harris and another time, as Randal Harris. He and Martha Ferguson married in Albemarle 6 Jan 1830, and he died there 2 Jul 1880. Three known sons: Hawkey F. Harris, William T. Harris and Bernard B. Harris, all of whom were in the Civil War, Virginia divisions.
