It's been a while since you posted this message, but I am looking for information about the same Richard Harris. The story I have put together is below. What do you know about his ancestors? Do you have a maiden name for his mother? I have found his father as Ezekiel Harris, born 1815 in South Carolina and his mother listed as Mary Ann.
I am looking for information about the uncle of my great-grandmother. His name was Ricard Irving Harris. He was born in Stephen's County or Palo Pinto County Texas around 1850. When his sister Rebecca Harris Black died, two of her sons were sold by their step-father, and the other two small girls were given to a neighbor family to be raised. Eventually, Emma's (my gr/grandmother) was taken in by her uncle Dick Harris and raisted until her late teens. My grandmother used to tell us that Emma's parents were killed in a train wreck near Abilene, so I suspect that Emma actually looked at Dick and his wife as her parents, and they were the ones killed in the train wreck.
Does any of this sound familiar? Do you have any history indicating that Dick and his wife might have raised two neices named Emma and Mary Lou?
