I research Harris Families in Louisa Co and their kin in west KY and TN.
When I learned that Overton Harris of Todd Co KY wrote his brother in Louisa
Co here,

THE LIBRARY OF VIRGINIA
OVERTON HARRIS LETTER
1 item, September 17, 1825, photocopy
A letter from Todd County, Kentucky, to Benjamin Harris of Louisa County.
There is discussion of illness among the slaves. Reference: (Acc. 23388)
I could not determine easily determine Overton's and Benjamin's parents.
A HARRIS-COLONIALVA-L contributor suggested 'someone' create a timeline.
It seemed like a good idea, so I put together my notes (see below).
Any help with the blanks as well as missing entries will be welcome.
Please reply to correct errors.
