Can anyone tell the the relationship of John Lee Harris to William Harris who married Mary C. Harris.
Shawna' web site has him as son of William Harris and Mary Dillard.
Thanks,
Betty

I have two John Lee Harris's, one born 1822 who md. Sarah Bryson and one born 1847 who md. Mary Jane "Molly" Queen. Are either one of these the John Lee Harris you are asking about?

Thanks Linda, but I don't think either. The 1860 census page 323 #636 of Jackson Co., NC has William Harris and Mary Harris family with J. age 1. The 1870 census #29 has John age 11. The 1880 census gives John 21. The William Harris here is listed after Benjamin and Mary E. Harris so John could not be the son listed on Shawna's web site as John Lee Harris born 1847. Her John Lee Harris married Molly Jane Queen. If this is truly the son of William and Mary C. (Harris) Harris, I would like to add him to the family. Any help would be appreciated. Thad Harris' death certificate gave Dillard as Mary's maiden name. My information has been Mary C. Harris, daughter of Benjamin and Frances Michel, as indicated in Ben's will.
Thanks,
Betty

Do you know the parents of William Harris in the 1860 Jackson Co NC census? I have a William K. Harris b. abt 1825 son of John Fletcher and Jane GLAZENER Harris that I have no further info about.

Have you corresponded with Andy Harris?

Linda, Thank you! I am glad you have John Lee Harris as son of Phillip Harris. That agrees with article #789 in Jackson Co. Heritage II. This John Lee Harris was born 12 years before the John, son of William and Mary C. Harris as listed on the 1860, 1870 and 1880 Jackson Co census. I would like to add William Harris' parents and lineage. Do you have proof of William K. Harris b abt 1825, son of John Fletcher Harris and Jane Glazener Harris. Were they in Jackson Co?
No, I have not corresponded with Andy Harris, but would like to if he has Harris history. Thanks! Betty
