I'm trying to track down George Harris (or George W. Harris), who was born around 1854, possibly in Roane County, TN. George appears in the 1860 and 1870 census records for Knox County, TN, residing in the family of Elcana (Elkana, Alkana, Alkanah, Elkanah or Cain) Taylor and his wife Mary. George is listed as a farm hand in the 1870 census. I would like to find out what happened to George after 1870. Alkanah Taylor died in 1872, and George may have left the area or the state. It appears that this George Harris may be the illegitimate son of a Saffell relative of mine, and I'm curious as to what happened to him, and who his mother was. Too bad his name is not more distinctive. Any leads?
