1841 Harris

My link with Francis Harris (Abt 1819-1892) who arrived in the ‘Marquis of Hastings) in 1841 is that my widowed grandmother, Margaret (Markham) Murray (1877-1957) married his son George (Sonny) Harris (1863-1941) in Darbys Falls in 1913.

 

The background to the early Harris days at Bennett Springs, written by George and Emilie (Henderson) HARRIS, my aunt and uncle, is attached here.  the first few generations are listed below.. Errors and omissions gratefully accepted.
