In Response To: Re: Harris in Henry and Patrick Co. Virginia ()
I am related through Nathan Harris who Milly lived with along with his wife Sarah and their children. One of Nathan's daughters was named Mary Ruth who married John Quincy Snell another free man of color. Nathan's mother Milly can be traced back to a Joanna Harris and that is listed by Nathan on his mother's death record when she died in her 90's in 1860. No father is stated so Nathan's father is a mystery to me at this point. I believe Micajah is a brother of Nathan and he had two children Nancy and Robert. Milly also had a daughter named Pricilla or Prissy Harris who left the county of Henry according to the records and came back and died before they could make her leave according to the laws of that time. Her children carried the surname Peters if memory serves me. Milly Harris is listed on Pricilla's death record. Who do you connect to?
