Hi - T. Kerwin has left a message for you. Sometimes people don't get their notifications so thought I'd let you know. He found the following Norris family in Montgomery County, Ohio in 1840. The 1840 census lists only the head of household by name.

Harriett's marriage record or death record or obituary may name her parents.

1840 Census
Montgomery County, Ohio
Name: William Norris
Home in 1840 (City, County, State): Montgomery, Ohio
2 boys, age 0-14
5 girls, age 0-14
2 men 20-49
1 woman age 30-39
Total All Persons - Free White, Free Colored, Slaves: 10

There is more than one William Norris in Montgomery County in Ohio in later census years.

Here is a possibility as a match to the above William, from a RootsWeb family tree:
