HELP: Harris & Ireland Oconomowoc Wisc
Posted by: Rylan D. Gwinn Date: December 09, 2000 at 14:15:42
  of 396

Can anyone help with the following families:

Jesse Harris b. abt 1812 England, died bet. 1858 and 1860 (probably Ocononowoc, Wakesha County, Wisconsin). Listed in 1850 Census with wife Sarah, born abt 1814 England and children:
Narrowni b. abt. 1840
George W. b. abt. 1842
Ellen b. abt. 1845
Maria b. 8 February 1849

1860 Census:
Oconomowoc, Waukesha County, page 922a:
Sarah Harris, 43, England
Narona, 19, Pennsylvania
George, 16, Pennsylvania
Eleanora, 14, New York
Maria, 12, Wisc
Charles, 2, Wisc
Sml Thomas Ireland, 27, England
Elizabeth Ireland, 73, England
Herman Worter, 22, farm-hand, Germany

Sarah either re-married or died before 1870 Census, as Charles is only remaining Harris of this family in Waukesha County:
1870 Census, page 368 b
Shimmel, Frank 26, Prussia
Hannah, 25, Prussia
Anna, 2, Wis
Edward, 1, Wis
Charles Harris, 12 "at home", Wis

I believe the Elizabeth Ireland, 73, listed in Sarah's household in the 1860 Census to be her mother.

I do not know the connection to the Shimmel family.

It is not known what became of Narrowni (sp) or Ellen/Ellenora.

I believe George, listed as age 16 in 1860 Census is same George W. Harris who died 4 March 1864 in Knoxville Tenn as part of the 1st Cavalry, Company F, Wisconsin's Volunteers (from "Roster of Wisconsin Volunteers: War of the Rebellion, 1861-1865; Vol. I; Democrat Printing Co., State Printers; Madison, Wis 1886, page 23.)

All that is known for sure is that Maria (Maria Louise Harris) married William Monroe Eddy and moved to Michigan (living in Ingham, Eaton, and Clinton Counties).

Charles (Charles Jesse Harris)came to live with Maria & William Eddy in 1872. He married William's sister, Mary Estella Eddy, and lived in Eaton, Ingham & Clinton Counties, Michigan.

Charles Jesse Harris was born 4 Jan 1858 in Oconomowoc. He died 5 Sept 1917 in Charlotte, Mich.

Can anyone help find information about Jesse & Sarah (Ireland) Harris?

Many Many Thanks!
