Della m. Dee Applewhite. Della b. in Texas, lived in the Los Angles, Ca. area.
Emily Harris was the daughter of Jesse R. Harris b. 1824 in Lee Co., Va. and Sarah Salyer b. 1832 in Floyd Co., Ky.Emily is my great grand father James Alexander Harriss's sister.Emily and Robert are buried in the Live Oak Tree Cemetery in Erath Co., Tx.
I am trying to connect my Jesse R. Harris to the family of Joseph A. Hariss/Harriss and Nancy, both born in Warren Co., NC- as parents of Jesse.Joseph and Nancy and a few sons moved to Lee Co., Va. with them and then to Carter Co., Ky. where they areburied.Jesse and Sarah Salyer went on to Texas.I have written many posts on the Harris and other message boards.
Emily and Robert T. Tacket were married in Williamson Co. Tx.
Surly hope someone can connect with this family.Please write me.
