per my interest in my harris family, can anyone tell me who this edward enroughty was who was associated with both william harris/ judith hudson and samuel harris and more about the enroughty family?
early lunenburg co, va deeds and records associate my william harris, sr/ frances goode with william harris/ judith hudson and i have been trying to learn for years if my william harris, sr/ frances goode was their son, william, per william harris/ judith hudson's 1778 mecklenburg co, va will???
the middle bluestone creek/ woodpecker creek area where both my william harris, sr/ frances goode and william harris/ judith hudson lived became mecklenburg co, va in 1765.
i am also interested if samuel harris, who was also associated with william harris/ judith hudson early in lunenburg co, va, was their son, samuel harris???
here are lunenburg/ halifax/ pittsylvania co, va deeds which shownot only that the samuel harris,involved with them and/ or the same individuals, was the same samuel harris, who married lucy camp and who became col samuel harris and reverend samuel harris. per the info,rev samuel harris stated he was born 1724 in hanover co, va.
