She was the daughter of William and Ursula Atwell as recorded on the 1850 and 1860 Bracken County, Kentucky census records. She is listed as Pelina in 1850 and Paulina in 1860. She married first to Mr. Marshall by whom she had at least 3 children: Nannie, Albert & Theodore. She married second to Thomas L. Harris by whom she had at least 5 more children: Mertie B., Fenton T., Lillie May , Eddie E. and Ernest. The 1880 census in Dallas, Dallas, Texas records Paulina [listed here as Belina] and her husband, Thomas, with 3 Marshall step children, 3 Harris children by his first marriage [Nannie E., E. Jane, and Charles L.] and then the 5 Harris children they had together. The death certificate for her daughter, Lillie May, records her father's name as H. A. Harris; this is probably incorrect and the informant, Helen Rice Wicker, didn't actually know her grandfather's name.
