Harris, Rogers, and Stephenson near Scotland Georgia
Posted by: Vance Harris (ID *****7831) Date: December 20, 2011 at 06:30:29

Hello,

I am trying to find additional information on the Family of William L. Harris.

William L. Harris was born Aug 23, 1911, probably in Montgomery Co. Georgia where his parents were living in 1910.

He died on July 25, 1949 near Scotland Georgia in Telfair County. He is buried in the Scotland Georgia City Cemetery.

According to the 1930 Telfair Co. Census, William was married to an Estelle. William L. Harris and his wife Estelle are living with Williams mother Maude "listed as Maudie" in the 1930 Census.

There is an Estelle Harris Stephenson buried in the Scotland City Cemetery and she is the perfect age to be the wife of William. So she appears to have remarried after Williams death to a Rubin A. Stephenson who is also buried in the Scotland City Cemetery. Estelle was born on Sept 28, 1909 in Georgia. She died on Oct 25, 1990.

I contacted the Library in McRae but they were unable to locate obituaries for any of the people.


William L. Harris was the son of Lewis Harris and Maude Rogers. In 1900, Lewis is living with his parents in Pike County Georgia. In 1910, his is living in Montgomery Co. Georgia with his wife Maude, son Thaddie, and brother-in-law Grover Rogers.

There is a Grover C. Rogers also buried in the Scotland City Cemetery who is probably this same person.

In 1920, Lewis Harris is living in Telfair Co. Georgia near Scotland with his wife Maude and sons Thad and William Harris.

Lewis Harris died in Telfair co. in 1926 and is buried in the Scotland City cemetery along with Maude Rogers Harris. An R. L. Rogers provided the family information on Lewis Harris death certificate...so I am assuming he is another brother of Maude and Grover.

There is an R. L. Rogers buried in the Scotland city Cemetery was well.

Here is what I need help with.

I would like to know the maiden of Estelle and the date she married William L. Harris. I would also be interested to learn about any children of William L. Harris and his wife Estelle and any children Estelle might have had with Rubin A. Stephenson.

I would also be interested in information on this Rogers family. I have been unable to find any of them prior to 1910.

and Just FYI, Lewis Harris and Maude Rogers' son Thad...I think he was Thad Lee Harris who married Mary Will Clark of Wheeler County. The couple moved to Warner Robins Georgia where they died and are buried.

Any help would be appreciated.
