Louis, could you share the genealogy of your Greenville Co. Harrises? I've been trying to trace the connections between the white and black Harrises of Southampton Co. (specifically, the area just north of Greenville) and Granville Co. NC. I know they are there, but proof is elusive. I strongly suspect that one or more of the Isle of Wight/ Southampton Harrises married a free woman of color, since the lists of sibling names in black and white families match pretty closely.
