Re: Harris in Henry and Patrick Co. Virginia


Yep, this forum is "pretty old" (and those of us who posted here have gotten older too ;). Considering this thread started in 2007 it is clear that even an old forum has information to share.

I research the Harris family in Henry County, specifically Milly and her Son Nathan Harris. Its been awhile since I have reviewed the material.


Hello. I’m not sure if anyone will see this message since this forum is pretty old, but if anyone does, I am apart of the Harris family line in Henry county Virginia and I heard of the Nathan and Dolly Harris story. I have come to a road block in my search, but then found the Harris Oral History. I can only trace my Harris line back to the early 1800s to my 5th great-grandparents: George and Milly Harris. On a record hint for their daughter, my 4th great-grandmother (Susan Beatrice Harris), it lists Nathan Harris as a relative, and that may be the Nathan Harris you were discussing in this forum. Either way, I’d like to help in any way I can.
