Yes I show a John Harris b.1830 but d. in 1910in Kirksville, Mo and a wife by the name of Amy Prough
WILLIAM HARRIS SR, grandfather of Judge Thomas Alvin Harris
William & Lieucinda may have had a daughter Nancy who married a John Martin back in 1801 in Kentucky. The Harrises, Martins, and Burrises were close knit and had many inter-marriages.
Thomas Alvin Harris Sr., born Janaury 5, 1796 in North Carolina, died July 16, 1866, came to Missouri in 1820

OBADIAH HARRIS may have been named Thomas Obadiah. Obadiah being used because of the proliferation of Thomas Hariss at the time in the family. *Source George Harris
Early records showed death to be February 15, 1901, however Harris Cemetery Records show death to be September 30, 1919. I think last date in error Warren UNDERWOOD
Records also show his birth date as May 16, 1814, maybe an error as his parents were not married until December 8, 1816. (see marriage license and bond) Warren Underwood
1850 Census of Cooper County shows Obadiah to be living with his father and is shown to be 38 years old which would make his birth date to be 1812, this information provided by George Harris, descendant, researcher, and genealogist. November 2006. (WLU)
Collin and Nolan were twins.
Delores Vaughn a family descendant of Obadiah Harris( this was her ggggrandfather) shows that William Franklin Harris born February 13, 1857 in Cooper County died February 16, 1935 at Atoka, Atoka County, Oklahoma which is Delores Vaughn's( great great grandfather.)
