Harris Family Genealogy Forum
Looking for information on Thomas O. Harris born Dec. 29, 1843 in TN. His first wife was born in TN (Unknown name). They had 2 children. Alminia Margaret Harris b. abt. 1864 in TN. and Arminta(u)B. Harris b. abt. 1866 in TX. I am presuming that his first wife died. In the 1870 Census of Denton County, Texas he was remarried to Dicy Ann Hendrix (Hendricks). His 2 daughters were living with him along with a new son to Dicy and Thomas, John Samuel Harris b. 1869. Also in the household were Dicy's 2 sisters and a brother. (They all had been orphans.) In the 1880 Census of Wise County, Texas the following children were listed: George b. abt. 1872 in TX, Martha (Mattie) b. abt. 1874 in TX, Josephine b. abt. 1876, and Harvey b. abt. 1879 in TX. They also had in their household, Dicy's brother Harve Hendrix and a 3 month old orphan named Samule Tibbitt. One more son was born later named Lester Harris. Thomas and Dicy had moved to Shawnee, OK by 1912 when Dicy died. Thomas died in 1924. Martha Harris m. B. C. Sullivan. Lester Harris m. 1. Sally Maude 2. Eula Gibbons. Harvey's marriage is unknown but he died in Gainesville, TX. John S. Harris m. George Ina Dobson in 1889 and d. 1955. Josephine m. Horace Alexander. Unknown information on Alminia Margaret Harris and Arminta B. Harris and George Harris. I located 2 other HARRIS families that lived next door to Thomas in 1880, E. Harris and George Harris. George Harris I noticed had a daughter named Arminta also and George was also b. in TN.
