Harriss Family Halifax County, NC

Hello, I have been trying to find my ggg grandfather Alfred Harriss and his family in North Carolina for quite some time--I do believe that I have hit a brick wall. I find them in the 1880 Census--but can only find the wife Holland Harriss in 1870...here's what I have:

1880 United States Census
Palmyra Township, Halifax County, NC
E.D. 129 Page 26B

Harriss, Alfred 57 self NC
Harriss, Holland 44 wife NC
Harriss, Rufus 21 son NC
Harriss, Winnie 17 dau NC
Harriss, Thomas 14 son NC
Harriss, Joseph 12, son NC
Harriss, Lula 11, dau NC
Harriss, Dary Ann 2 dau NC
Harriss, J. Alfred 1 son NC
Harriss, Millie 80 mother

1900 United States Census
Palmyra Township, Halifax County, NC
E.D 35 Sheet 16B

Harriss, Alfred 75 self
Harriss, Holland 75 wife
Harriss, Joseph 29 son
Harriss, Mary 28, wife of son

My brick wall is that I can not find any records on Alfred Harriss, his mother (Millie) and or his children (Rufus, Winnie, Thomas, and Joseph) beyond 1880. I have searched census, county, Freedman Bureau records.

Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
