*Cynthia Ann was a Grandchild of Richard Harris III of Smithfield, RI. This is proven by land records in their sale with their Vickery husbands of some land inherited at the time of his death.

Her probable sister is Elizabeth (Horton*) Vickery (m Enoch Vickery) and they both sold land received in Richard Harris' will.

It is unclear what the maiden name is, some people have it as "Warren", as they could as well be children of a daughter. There are no available records for Smithfield to ascertain Richard's children that have been found to date. It is known he had 10 children, from his wife's obit in the Phenix Newspaper.

Recent activity indicates that it indeed was Richard's daughter, Elizabeth, who married Benjamin Horton, that was the mother to these girls. (see Horton-Hathaway cemetery in Scituate RI, where the Vickery women lived with their husbands when the land was sold) This Horton family did not always live in RI, it seems they may have lived in Massachusetts before settling there near the end of their lives. (Dr. Peleg Hathaway records).

Also it's highly likely that someone may have transcribed Cynthia's maiden name as "Warren", incorrectly misreading "Horton" in the handwriting. There were no Warrens living in Scituate RI at the time.
