I believe that my g-g grandfather, JESSE HARRIS, who married CATHERINE BOYD KEEBLE, was born in NC about Aug 1810. Since prior to 1850 only the head of a household is indicated in the census, it is very difficult to search through census reports for someone other than the head of a household.
A Harris family researcher indicates that Dr. Jesse Harris had a brother, Thomas Harris.
Jesse Harris' and Catherine Boyd Keeble's son, JOHN THOMAS HARRIS, was born 2 Aug 1845 in Benton Co, MS, but the family soon moved to W TN to Gibson Co, then Haywood Co that became Crockett Co about 1872. John Thomas Harris is my g grandfather.
Dr. Jesse Harris gave up his medical practice about the last decade or so of his life and served as the Crockett Co Court Clerk. He and his wife are buried in the Alamo City Cemetery in Crockett Co, TN.
Dr. Harris and Catherine Keeble also had a son, David Wells Harris, who became a physician.
My ancestors are described in my family tree: "Charles Robbins Harris."
Do these names ring a familiar bell to anyone whose family originated in NC?
