This couple lived in Kentucky at some time as some of their children were born there. James P.

I am very interested in William and Lieucinda Harris. I know that my husband's line is in this one, but can't make the connection to his parents. John Harris, b. 1830 d.1918 Cooper Co., MO. He first married Martha Elizabeth Jones, second Amay Prough. Do you happen to have this person in your files?

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
*Source Harris Cemetery Records.

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.)

*Notice a daughter in-law and a granddaughter was living with Obadiah in 1880. was IDA O. husband perhaps of James Harris or Patrick Harris? I Show Patrick had a wife named Ida A.?
Also notice the spelling's different Obediah what I show Obadiah..

John Harris son of Thomas Alvin Harris son of William Harris Sr.

Does your Harris database have any records/information about the parents, siblings, or ancestors of John Harris/John C. Harris who married Frances (Fanny) Hall on January 7, 1800, in Clark County, Kentucky?

Thank you Sharon!

No, I'm sorry I don't have those names in my files. That's not to say they don't belong though. Maybe after more research, we can make a connection! Good luck in your search.

slolife361,
My Harris family is from Claiborne Co. Abraham Harris married Mary Catherine Blanset in Claiborne Co. Abraham was born in VA to John P Harris and Matilda HELMANDOLLAR.

Here are their children:Creed J., Olivia, George W., Harriet, Abraham, Margaret, Isabel, Margaret, Mary, John P., Charles, Ellen, Robert Lee, Ollie. By 1880 they have moved to Missouri and the older children are not ith them.

I can't find anything on Matilda Helmandollar before 1860. But John P HARRIS whom I found with the older children in Tazewell Co VA in 1860 is believed by some to descend from Reuben HARRIS. I am not sure of that info.

Do you have any of these in your line?

I don't have these people in my files yet. I have seen reference to them on a grave though. Do you know who John's parents were?
