Saw your posting. I to am trying to find out about Sallie Harris. Her son, Henry Harris is my greatgrandfather. I can't find anything on her before 1900 also. Sallie and her daughter Beatrice are buried at the Macedonia North Cemetery, Shelby Co., AL and so is her son William Harris. I to was told by family that when someone asked my greatgrandfather Henry Harris about his father that he said he was a bastard and my dad does not know either. So, there is something going on there. Can't imagine this woman having several children without being married. The 1900 census states that she had 7 children and 6 are living. I was also told that Henry had an older brother. Henry was born in 1873, then William 1875, Beatrice 1886, Walter Lee 1890 and last Calvin Franklin 1893. I do not know who the older brother was since I can't find them beyond the 1900 census. Maybe that is the 7th child who died. You state in your message a Rosie Harris b. 1881. I did not have her in my files. So that would account for the 6th child. Do you have any more information since your posting? Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
