States: North Carolina: Pitt
I am actually researching family of James and Arthur Brown (b 1761 Pitt Co.). In transcribing records I have seen a pattern of the Harris family interacting with my Brown family over 50 years from Pitt Co NC to Ky to Carroll Co., TN. In the 1780-1790's Thimothy and James Harris (son of Thimothy) are Chain bearers in land that Arthur Brown owns in Pitt Co NC. Again in 1790 James and Susannah Harris sell 255 Acres to Arthur Brown in Pitt Co. The Harris Family are some of the original settlers in Carroll Co. TN. I am trying to construct their family to see if I can possibly find a missing female that married into my Brown's. Arthur Son of James Brown moved from Pitt to Caldwell Co KY, prob 1811-1818, and then by 1823 to Carroll Co TN. The Harris are there then along with other Pitt families, Bigham's, Rogers, Sanders, and others. Can anyone help me with an outline of the Harris family from 1760 to about 1850?? I am looking for the maiden name of Arthur Brown's wife "Mandy", possibly Amanda or Mandora, based on granddaughters names.
