My grandfather Aaron Johnson was from Sardis, MS. Through oral history, I learned that he was related to the Harris family of Sardis, MS in Panola county. Grampa has three sisters; Martha, Virginia and Henretter who may have married into the Harris family. I would be interested to know if any of these names show up in your research. My grandfather, as well as his sisters were all born in the 1870's.

MY GRT-GRT GRANDFATHER MARRIED NELLY THEY HAD A SON WALTER WHO LOCATED TO BATESVILLE,MS. I'M NOT SURE BUT UNCLE"BUD" OR WALTER HARRIS WIFE NAME BUT HE HAD A GRAND DAUGHTER NAME VIRGINIA(CHICAGO) WHO BECAME AN ANTHONY. I BELIEVE VIRGINIA MAIDEN NAME WAS FENTON. MY 3RD COUSIN DIED LAST MONTH SHE WAS 96 AND THE OLDEST AT BATESVILLE. TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION NELLY AND BARNEY WERE BORN IN THE 1840'S AND 1850'S. SO WALTER HARRIS PROBABLY WAS BORN IN THE 1870'S BECAUSE HIS SISTER MY GRT-GRANDMOTHER WAS BORN 1879. LET ME KNOW IF SOMETHING SOUNDS FAMILIAR. I HAVE A LOT OF INFO ON NELLY BUT NOTHING ON BARNEY HARRIS. THANKS

Surnames: Black, Gordon, Johnson, Harris, Webb, Orr, Tyler
This is very interesting because my grandfather was Aaron Johnson. He had 3 sisters. I believe one of them married into the Harris family. My grandfather's father, Lance (Land) Johnson is reported to have had some siblings. I am currently searching for them. It is possible that there is a link here somewhere - Maybe Walter's sister married a Johnson related to my Lance Johnson. I will keep you posted. You can e-mail me outright at ryarborough@sbcglobal.net.

Other surnames in my research are Black, Mitchell, Gordon. The Black's and the Mitchell's are having a reunion here in Chicago this coming August. I hope to find out about the Harris side at that time. I will keep you posted.
