The Harrises in Monroe, Tennessee which is next to Blount County are not Group 3 Harris DNA. Group 3 is in Blount, but there is at least one other DNA group there. The Harrises in Monroe appear to connect to Nathaniel Watson who in 1840 is listed as a Revolutionary War pensioner living in the household of John Harris. Also in the area are two different men named Robert M. Harris-one is my Robert Marklin Harris who was known to be living in 1801 Blount county with John Harris, his father and other siblings including William Harris, my direct line. The second is Robert McCulloch Harris from a different Harris group.
