States: Missouri: Adair
My long-dead great-grandfather John Lafayette Harris, who lived and died in the Ozarks (Oregon County, Mo.), is supposed to have migrated south from Kirksville/Adair County. Or perhaps it was his father, Riley Washington Harris (1853-1938), who did. Anyway, this Riley Harris, whose father was a John Harris, was married to a Lydia Lee Lorton, whose father was James Lorton. I want to know more about these people and where they came from. Do any of these names ring a bell with anyone?
