HARRIS of NC and Robertson Co., TN
I am having a very difficult time finding any further information on my HARRIS ancestors. I truly hope someone out there can help me!
William HARRIS, Sr. b.1792 NC d. 1855 Robertson Co.,TN
m. abt. 1817 to Temperance (maiden name unk), b.1800 VA
1.William, b.1818 TN m. Leah LEWIS d. 1868 Jersey Co.,IL
2.Samuel, b.1820 TN
3.Mary, b.1823 TN m. Calvin BENSON
4.Martha A., b.1825 TN (poss. married to Byram Brakefield)
5.baby girl (name unk), b.1827 TN d. in infancy
6.Susan, b.1829 TN (poss. married to James Brakefield)
7.Mahala, b.1831 TN (poss. married to L.H. Luie)
8.Lucinda, b.1833 TN
Temperance's maiden name may have been Munday or Monday and there is a possibility that she was William's second wife.
William may have been the father of some other, older children perhaps born in NC. Interestingly, there was mention of the estateof an R. T, Harris of Montgomery County in William Harris' 1855 administration records. An R. T. Harris also died in early 1855 in Montgomery Co., TN - the estate mentioned no Harrises and consisted mostly of textbooks and riding gear.
Does anyone out there have any further information on this Harris family?
