Hi, There are actually two instruments that I am aware of that set forth the
children of Wiley Harris: his will that was probated in Madison Co,
Tennessee, and a petition to sell land that was filed in the circuit court
of Madison County, Tennessee, for the March term of 1855.
That is a rough descendancy chart for Wiley Harris to four generations.
Where "1855" appears, just assume that the person was dead in 1855 per the
Petition to sell land.
The dates of birth for Wiley and Elisabeth Harris, Isham V. Harris and Nancy
Rogers, and their children comes from the Isham V. Harris family bible in
Texas.
Reynoldsburg, Tennessee, the locale of the marriage for Isham V. Harris and
Nancy Rogers, was in Humphreys County, Tennessee, which is where Nancy
Rogers parents settled following their moving from Nash County, North
Carolina.
Although I have seen Isham V. Harris's middle name on the internet as
"Vinnings," I don't know the source of that information.
Now, for Isham's brother Thomas, I used an approximate year of birth based
on the 1870 Gonzales County, Texas, census information I previously
submitted.
