Hattie M. Honeycutt was born 1870 in Clayton, Johnston County, NC, the eldest of two children (1 boy/1 girl) born to David Tilden Honeycutt (CSA-POW) and his wife, Rebecca Hood.
Hattie married Macon Harris, an agent for the Railroad, about 1892 when she was about 22, and he 27. The couple lived in Clayton, where three children were born: Samuel Turner Harris (1893), Pearl Carrie Harris (1894), and Lucille Harris (1898).
Sadly, Hattie died nine months after the birth of her 3rd child, passing in 1898 at age 28. Her widowed husband cared for the children until his untimely death 7 years later. Hattie's mother, Rebecca Hood Honeycutt, by then a 59-year old widow, took up raising the 3 orphaned children in Clayton.
Two of Hattie Honeycutt Harris' children remained in Clayton. Sam married Sallie Snipes from Smithfield, and had a son Mason Phillip Harris. They are buried in Maplewood Cemetery, and Mason is interred at Pinecrest in Clayton. Pearl married George Armitage of Clayton. It is not known what became of Lucille.
Hattie's only sibling, Samuel T. Honeycutt, married May Young of Panther Branch, Wake County, and raised their 3 children in Smithfield, Johnston County, where he practiced law. In his youth, Sam Honeycutt was considered one of the finest baseball players in the U.S., playing all over the country while in was in college at UNC-Chapel Hill.
