LOOKING FOR INFORMATION ON THE FOLLOWING "HARRIS" FAMILY:
Phillip Harris, born 1858 (GA) Farm Laborer-married to Henrietta born 1861 (GA). Had three children: Issie (1897-GA), Olivia (1899-GA), and LEE (1904-5 GA).
LEE married Georgia (b. 1908-GA). Born in (I think) LUMPKIN, STEWART,GA. Had a son, GEORGE LEROY HARRIS (b. 1925-27). LEE AND GEORGE LIVED IN MICHIGAN IN 1930 (CENSUS INFO.)
THEIR SON, GEORGE LEROY HARRIS, IS MY BIRTH FATHER. HE MARRIED MY MOTHER "JULIA ANN LEWIS" APPROXIMATELY 1947-48. SHE WAS BORN IN "SALEM, MICHIGAN." THEY MAY HAVE MET AT "MICHIGAN STATE NORMAL TEACHERS COLLEGE" (NOW EASTERN MICHIGAN UNIVERSITY) IN 1946-47.
MY BIRTH CERTIFICATE SAYS THAT HE WAS BORN IN PETOSKEY BUT NO RECORDS HAVE EVER BEEN FOUND. THEY DIVORCED APPROXIMATELY 1949-50.
I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY INFORMATION.
