Sheid - easy to say "NOT my line" but when you begin looking around, the old phrase come to mind - if they were born in Izard County, could be!
Began snooping using Movaco - found extensive old FTM that may answer your Harris question. Many born in Izard Co and even more in AR.
Did I mention extensive? Sheid line may be around in the middle of file
Sheld line has many repeating names. Will be easy to get the wrong George, William or Rhoda.
Also has Lafferty and Creswell lines, DAR connections and some wills.
Look around and see what you can use.

Subject: Re: [ARIZARD] Sheid Family
I'm interested in the connection of the SHEID family to the HARRIS family. I believe that the Robert D. HARRIS shown married to Martha SHEID was the brother of my gggrandfather, Silas Randolph HARRIS, both sons of John Proctor HARRIS. I see that in the tree shown below, there is a John HARRIS m. to Anna SHEID in the 2nd generation. Does anyone know if these 2 HARRISes are related? There seem to have been more than one Robert D. HARRIS in Izard and I've had a hard time sorting them out. The Arkansas marriage records at FamilySearch show a Robert D. HARRIS of the right age marrying Mrs. M. C. WADE in Fulton Co. in 1900, but I have my doubts if this is the same man. Any help would be appreciated.
