[AR] Harris family - Desha Co., Arkansas

I'm searching for the descendents of any of the Harris family members descending from Henry and Alice Harris of Desha County, Arkansas. Alice was born possibly in 1865 and no later than 1868. The names and birth dates of her children are listed below:

Henry Harris Jr. b. 1885
Lucinda Harris b. 1892
Ella Harris b. 1894
Iona Harris b. 1891
Esther Harris b. 1902
Lenora Harris b. 1904
Noble Harris b. 1906
Carrie Harris b. 1910

In 1910, Alice Harris, whose maiden name was, Alice Collins is enumerated with her husband Henry, their 8 children, and her mother Dorcas Collins - age 84 (Census spelling - Dorkis Callis).

Also, Alice had an older Sister by a different father who surname was originally Elizabeth (Betty) Harrell or Hamell, born 1855, in Tennessee. Elizabeth's surname was later changed several times by way of marriage, to Carter - 1869, Curley (Curly) by at least - 1876, Thomas - 1885, Brown - 1889, and McRae (McCray) - 1898. Her marriage to Dixson Curley sired my great-grandmother, Centennial Curley (b. 1876 - d. 1968).

Alice also had a younger sister, Ida Collins, born around 1870 to 71.

FYI - I have pictures of Centennial Curley and may have an old picture of Alice Collins Harris. Also, Centennial Curley married names were, Dixon, Austin, and Keys.
