Phillis Lewis/Isaiah Harris
Hi, I'm Nicole and I need some help researching my 3rd great grandparents, Phillis Lewis Jones and Isaiah Harris.
I can't seem to find Phillis Lewis in the 1870 census anywhere in LA. I found her in the 1880, 1900, 1910, 1930, and 1940 census. She lived in Morehouse Parish, La and Richland Parish, LA. She married Abraham Jones on December 7, 1876 in Morehouse. She had 5 children, Humphrey, William, Phillip, Frank, and Lowe.
I did find a Phillis Lewis (born abt 1859) in Hinds, MS in the 1870 census with parents and siblings. She was about the same age as my grandma Phillis but I don't know if its her or not.
One last thing, In the census in LA, Phillis's birthplace kept switching from LA to AL and that is what confusing me. I looked for her in Alabama but no luck.
If anyone could be of good help, I would really appreciate it.
