Birth: Oct. 21, 1868
Tennessee, USA
Death: 1945
Missouri, USA

Husband of Tina (Trent) Harris.

Buried in New Granby Cem., Newton Co, MO.

According to Rachel Trent, he was fun and enjoyed a joke.

In the 1870 Census of Granger, Tennessee, I found Abe living with his family, including his brother, John, who is about 11 years older as noted in the 1900 census:
Harris, David T, MW, 44, VA
Harris, Sarah, FW, 44, VA
Harris, Richard, MW, 20, TN
Harris, William, MW, 19, TN
Harris, Haywood, MW, 16, TN
Harris, Seborne, MW, 14, TN
Harris, John, MW, 13, TN
Harris, Andrew, MW, 7, TN
Harris, Joseph, MW, 5, TN
Harris, Abraham, MW, 2, TN

In the 1880 Census of the Franklin Township, Newton, MO, I found Abe living with his father and siblings:
Harris, David T, age 52, VA
Harris, Andrew J, age 17, TN
Harris, Joseph, age 14, TN
Harris, Abram, age12, TN
Hanks, Olena, granddaughter, age 9. TN.

1900 Census of Granby, Newton, MO:
John R Harris Granby, Newton, Missouri abt 1857 Tennessee White Head
Eliza Harris Granby, Newton, Missouri abt 1862 Missouri White Wife
Vertie Harris ,Granby, Newton, Missouri abt 1884 Missouri White Daughter
Eva F Harris Granby, Newton, Missouri abt 1890 Missouri White Daughter

(In this census, Abe is living with his brother, John R. Harris.)

"I found Abe, age 39, living in Granby, Newton County according to the 1910 census. This would mean that the birthdate I have (1868) must be wrong. The actual birthdate has to be around 1872. His birthplace and those of both parents is given as Tennessee. His wife is listed as Lizzie, age 30, born in Missouri, father born in Missouri, mother born in Missouri. His daughter Lena, age 8, born in Missouri, father born in Missouri, mother born in Missouri. Daughter Nieta, age 6, born in Missouri, father born in Missouri, mother born in Missouri. This is a discrepancy since Abe's birthplace is listed as Tennessee. Is this a mistake or is their father some other person? Also, I thought that Clementine's nickname was Tina, not Lizzie and I have no idea who Nieta is. I have no one of that name on my records. However, Lena's name and birthdate are exactly what I have in my records. I do think this is the same family." Sherri Levesque Park
