Jesse Harris is my great great great great grandfather. The land that my grandmother was raise on outside of Denton , North Carolina on the Ward Rd.. was the homeplace. The homeplace was built by George Harris. George Harris was raise in a old homeplace above his home. The home is grew up in the the old plantation house of Turner Harris. Turner Harris was the son of Jesse Harris. The brother of Ransom Harris , George Harris that died in 1843. The old family grave yard is hot far from where the old house stood . The land that the old house was adjoined Ranson Harris . Jesse Harris jr. changed to Jesse Harris Sr. after Jesse Harris Sr, died in Georgia .My lineage goes as so.
