Re: Harris in Henry and Patrick Co. Virginia

Hollis, My ggg-granparents were Nathan and Sarah Harris. Nathan was the son of Milly Harris who passed age 90 in 1860. Her death record lists Joannah as her parent. I know Milly had at least two children Nathan Harris and Prissy Harris. She lived with Nathan and Prissy died at age 50 according to her death record in 1856 Milly Harris is her mother also. Prissy was born ca. 1805 and has a record where at age 46 produced proof to the court that she was born free in the county of Henry. I also believe James had a wife before Keziah Minor. The children I saw on records would use language such as Harris alias Minor or vice versa with some of her children. There also never found a marriage record for the couple in Rockingham Co. Nc. I know where she moved from census records. Our last Kesiah family member died in the late 1990's. There was also a Milly Harris who moved with her daughter on my free Snell line and on that census she carries the last name of Minor. Nathan and Sarah Harris had many children and I am from their daugher Mary Ruth m. John Quincy Snell.Selma's late husband is related through their one of their sons Levi T. Harris
