According to the Cassville Republican, Weekly Paper, Feb 27, 1896 - Lucinda died 3/17/1896 at age 103. Lucinda married Jacob Eagle about 1816. In 1830 they were living in Humphreys Co, TN very near her father, Zephaniah Harris. Jacob died in 1839 and Lucinda is listed as head of the household in Shelby Co, TN in 1840. By 1850 she is the wife of widower James Kennedy and is living in Ouachita Co, AR. In 1860 - and for the rest of her life - Lucinda lived in Barry Co, MO. She actually was only 95 or 96 when she died. She was the only daughter of Zephaniah and Joanna Mitchell Harris. In 1810 Zephaniah is listed in Shelby Co, KY as having 1 daughter under 10 and 4 sons under 10. Zephaniah Harris and "Joahana" Mitchell married 12/19/1799 in Jessamine Co, KY. Joanna was the daughter of Daniel (c1750-1823) and Judith Prewitt Mitchell (c1751-before 1820.) Daniel and his father-in-law Michael Prewitt and their extended families were early pioneers of the Shelby Co, KY area. Possible sons of Zephaniah and Joanna Harris are JS, Daniel, and Rice all found on the same page in the 1830 Humphreys Co, TN census. Rice lived next to Lucinda and Jacob Eagle. John Harris is found on the next page and is the same age as Zephaniah - 50-60. Possible brother? I'm interested in any information about Zephaniah Harris and Jacob Eagle. Posted information says that Jacob is the son of George Eagle or Egle, but I have never seen any proof.
