I have been looking at the information on Joseph Harris married to Sally Durbon, the parents of Polly and maybe Sophronia Harris.Found on Ancestry, Family Tree Maker sites, etc.
Does anyone have any information that they could have been sisters?Also, does anyone have aHow about any source information on this family?By the way, it was not uncommon for someone to marry a brother or sister when a spouse died.
I have found a Mary Dearborn Harris b. Aug. 9, 1801 and a Nathan Kendrick Harris b. June 7, 1799 in the Vermont birth index for Wheelock.Both have a Father of Joseph Harris.Polly is common nickname of Mary and the birth dates match!
Here is my information from my sources.
I have a Joseph Harris married to Sally Dearborn and they had the following children. Freeman, Joseph, Polly, Sophronia, Sarah and Nathan.(This is listed in the History of Jefferson Country, Wisconsin)
Nathan Harris born June 7, 1799 in Wheelock, Vermont and can place him in Barnston, Canada between 1816-1820 as Joseph Harris bound him out as a tanner when he was young.Nathan married Orpha Aldrich in Canada on July 1, 1821 then they went to Whitby, Ontario.They ended up in Jefferson County, Wisconsin in 1844.He died Aug. 21, 1861.
