RE: Mary Caroline Harris McGhee
I got it and have printed. Hope to find time to work on it in a few days. Thanks so much for helping me out here. I just can't figure out why that daughter got mixed up with Evan Harris' group. Usually old researching got it right.

Take care, Robie

RE: Mary Caroline Harris McGhee
Thanks for the reply and so sorry it has taken me so long to get back with you. I just don't have enough hours in the day.

I have putzed around the internet and found a couple enteries also saying Peter Harris is father of Mary Caroline "Polly" Harris McGhee. Also a mention of a family bible in existence.

I guess I, as others did, when starting my research a long time ago assumed a lot of old data.

Peter and Evan Harris must be brothers as they both followed through or stayed in Grainger County, TN at the same time frame.

I could not find the will though of Peter Harris. Maybe I will look more later.

I have printed your note as well as other notes on the internet and will put with my data for further reference.

Thanks again for your time in replying to my note...Robie

RE: Mary Caroline Harris McGhee
Evan Harris left a will naming his wife, Rachel (Stewart), and his children: John, Mary, Isaac, Martha, Nancy, Israel, Elizabeth, Robert, Jane, Stewart and Temple.

Will was recorded on July 13, 1836 in Grainger County, Tennessee. You can find it on ancestry.

His daughter Mary married Zera Marion McGhee on 24 Jan 1804 in Grainger County, Tennessee.

I have never seen this Peter Harris mentioned before.

I am always interested in getting things as correctly as possible though none of us can totally be sure when we are dealing with 300 year old history.

Your photos for Wilson & Mealey are WONDERFUL! If you have any Mealey family photos, the rest of the family is across the street at Saint Josephs Cemetery in Greenwich...I believe that I sent you a link from Clarence to Cornelius & Harriet Mealey via the edits link. :-) Alice

Mary Caroline Harris McGhee
I noticed your Find A Grave memorial #141053534 had her father as Peter Harris. I thought her parents were Evan Harris and Rachel Stewart.

I'm no expert on this line but she would have been my 4th great grand aunt.

RE: mary dupree nichols
Thanks for the prompt reply. Thought you should know that the Cemetery says that they have no record of James Wesley Nichols in the Salado Cemetery. They suggested that I put no marker on his Memorial.

I'm not sure you have the right James & Mary. I have the James on a 1900 Census in Van Zandt County, with Mary ??? Nichols born in May 1854 Texas. The Mary with the may be right but I think the James is the one I am looking for and I am not sure they're the same.

RE: Thank you
Adelaide Turner Is Kin to you? Do you Have anything on Her Husband John William Turner? I think that He (John William Turner) is the son of William Turner and Jane Byers. born in Missouri, 4 Months after William Turner Died. John William is the brother of Rose Etta Turner Hutsen. I am trying to find anything that I can on William Turner.
