I have done a lot of research into William J Harris, Jr as he is my ancestor.In regard to his wives, there is some confusion.I have grown comfortable with the following two wives and their offspring.I know that William and Henrietta Ann are my ancestors, but have not delved much, yet, into the Burnett line. I suspect the two Burnett women were sisters or first cousins which makes the lineage from there a moot point.However, my information is ever changing as I find more.Hope this is helpful to you.
Most of my info comes from my grandmother's Harris/Manley family bible, family written and oral info, Family Search.org, RootsWeb and books.
I have put 1, 2, 3 after some of the children.William had 20 or 21 children, some of whom are named the same by several wives
I have also put widespread dates e.g. d 1749-1792 when I have many dates as possibilities withing that range and am not yet comfortable with a set date.
The two marriages I am pretty sure about are:
1-William J Harris, Jr (b1700-1710)(d1749-1792) Louisa Co. m Elizabeth Burnett(b1704) m between 1720 and 1727 2 Benjamin 1720 Mary 1 1721 John 1 1722 Temperence (Baker) 1723 William 11724 Ann 11725 John 2 Overton 11726 Jemima (Overton) 1727 Mary 21727 Fred 11728 Benjamin 21730 Keziah (Nelson) 1731 Overton 2 1732 Ann 21740
m Henrietta ANN Burnett(b 1705-1710) in 1740 Louisa, Co 2 Frederick 2 1742 John 3 1742 Sofrona Overton 1743 William 21744 Robert1745 married Mezapina Walton
There is conjecture on Rootsweb(AFN:9LPZ-ZP) that the last six children listed under Elizabeth Burnett may have been the children of a woman named "Burrett" who mat have been married to Wm between 1727-1740.In my opinion "Burrett" is too close to "Burnett" and I suspect it is just a mispelling.
Also, one source (Rootsweb Home Page: Ancestors and Descendants of Jesse Macon Lawrence Jr) gives a marriage "after 1750" to a Lucy Camp (b abt 1720).I haven't pursued this, but suspect it is more likely Lucy married one of William's sons named William b 1724 and 1744.
