EXPLANATORY 



The ordei- of arrangement adopted, seems to me more simple, 
clear, and natural than the complex system of notation and order 
usually adopted by most genealogists. Each generation is given 
separately, and all follow each other in the order of their succes- 
sion ; the running head-line over each page at once denoting the 
generation beneath. 

The same order of successive individual primogeniture, is also 
followed. The descendants of the first in order, in each genera- 
tion, open the next generation, and the descendants of the last in 
order, close it. This plan simplifies the whole, and affords an easy 
mode of tracing any line, either upward or downward. 

Each name, when it first occurs in the table of births, has its 
fixed catalogue number in the margin ; and when carried to the 
next generation for further history, carries with it this distinctive 
number, for identity and reference. To trace upward: take the 
name and number in the table of births; the name and num- 
ber of the parent is seen at the head of this table ; find this head 
number in the margin of the preceding generation; the name 
and number at the head, shows the grandparent; and so on, by 
repeating this alternate reference, through each generation, the 
entire line is shown upward to James of Boston, tlie first settler, 
and common ancestor of all. To trace downward, simply reverse 
the process. 

The relation or degree of kinship between any two of the fam- 
ily, may be easily found by tracing both lines upward until they 
unite in a common ancestor, and then noting in a third column, 
the several degrees of kinship from that common ancestor down- 
wards ; arranging them with the higliest numbers at the bottom, 
as in the following example. What is the degree of kinship 
betweenFrank A.Harris, No. 1066, and Ephraim W. Harris, 1195?

These examples will, I trust, render the process perfectly intel- 
ligible to all; and the solution of similar problems in kinship may 
be a source of gratification and amusement, especially to the young. 

The first date after the marginal number is the date of birth, 
and this being noted, the constant repetition of the word, born, is 
thus avoided. The general abbreviations are ; b. for born ; d. died ; 
m. married; unm. unmarried; rem. removed; sett, settled; res. 
reside; s. son ; dau. daughter; gr. and g. gr. grand, or great grand 
son or daughter, etc. Other abljreviations will explain themselves. 

In some cases tlie names in the tables of births are abljreviated. 
and sometimes dates are also omitted, in order to condense into 
one line; but the full name and omitted dates will be found in the 
next generation, where the number is carried forward, and also in 
the index of names. 

The portraits given are faithful copies from photographs. 
No. 394 bears the general features of his grandfatlier, Nathaniel 
Harris, No. 34, and is a very good representation, in contour of 
head and facial expression, of the more common type of our Harris 
family. Those of Nos. 353 and 455 are said to be more typical 
of the respective families whose names they bear. Never having 
seen but few of the families of the line of Asa, I am unable to 
say from the portrait of No. 1887 how far he is a typical represen- 
tative, in feature, of that branch. 



PREFACE 



No one, except those who have had experience in the matter, 
can have any adequate conception of the vast amount of labor, 
time, patience, or expense, or of the perplexing embarrassments; 
involved in preparing works of this character; especially if that 
thorough investigation and research is made, which is requisite for 
a full and accurate catalogue of names, with dates of births, mar- 
riages, deaths, and other events in detail, reliably exact, and 
generally complete in the record. And a genealogy defective in 
these dates and details, fails in its most essential purpose. 

This work was commenced nearly thirty-five years ago ; though 
not then with any design of publication. There was a vague 
family tradition that the first of our Amei'ican ancestors was a 
certain Lieut. James Harris of N. London, Conn., of some note 
in his day, and I had a curiosity to test this tradition. It soon 
appeared that this James, was one of the nine children of Gabriel 
of N. L., who was the son of Walter Harris [No. 1 of the Appen- 
dix], who came over in 1632, in the ship " William and Francis," 
and settled in W^eymouth, Mass., but in 1652 removed to N. Lon- 
don. After several years labor and research in gathering quite 
an array of the descendants of this Walter, with many historical 
and personal notes, several newly-discovered circumstances gave 
rise to a grave doubt whetlier this James the son of Gabriel, and 
our Lieut. James, were identical ; and further investigation fully 
established the fact that tliey were not ; and that the former died 
in early youth — thus leaving the origin and antecedents of Lieut. 
James entirely unknown, with no clue to their discovery, and 
rendering nearly the whole mass of my gathered material useless 
for my purpose. The work was then substantially suspended, and 
the chief attention of my spare time was more especially occupied 
in tracing out the lineage and ancestry of the " Morgan Family," 
to which I belong, and which I have since published. I, however, 



PREFACE. < 

continued to collect, from time to time, such facts and data as 1 
could, pertaining to the history and family of Lieut. James, and 
among others, that he was one of the sons of a certain James 
Hari'is of Boston, who with his wife Sarah, had the births of 
eleven children there recorded, but about whom nothing further 
was known. [See p. 18.] 

Thus far, the subject had been pursued merely for my own grati- 
fication. Meantime my health became so broken by an affliction 
of spasmodic asthma, of the most intensely distressing type, that 
for twenty years, and until quite lately, I have rarely been able 
to prosecute any pursuit, physical or mental ; but about tliree 
years ago there came welcome signs of a modification and relief, 
and I instinctively turned my attention again to this subject, as a ' 
sort of mental absorbent, to draw my thoughts away from myself. 

This renewed pursuit was also strongly seconded by my excellent 
friend and kinsman, Hon. J. N. Harris of N. L., No. 394, who 
has ever manifested a lively interest in these researches, and 
generously offered to share in the expense ; and who appealed to 
me under the consideration that unless my gatherings were now, 
and by myself, completed and published, in form for preservation, 
they never would be, and so the whole history of the family would 
be for ever lost. This consideration had great force, and since 
then, my whole attention and best efforts have been devoted to the 
task, and with what success, this volume which I now submit to 
the family, will show. I wish it were more perfect in catalogue 
and dates, but these defects have been rendered inevitable by the 
neglect and reticence of others. Had my letters and reiterated 
appeals for family records, been responded to with any fair degree 
of attention, I should have presented a more perfect work, and 
with less than half the labor. 

Fully impressed with the importance of accuracy in detail, I 
have tried faithfully to attain it; but in a work like this, so 
abounding in names and dates, transcribed and re-transcribed, 
and often by unskilled hands, it would be indeed strange if some 
errors had not crept in. And, moreover, the records themselves, 
whether public, or the private family Bible, though purporting 
verity, are frequently faulty. I have known the family record, 
the town record, and the gravestone, each to give a different date 
of the same event, neither of which was correct. I have seen a 



8 PREFACE. 

registry in a family Bible, made by a careful and intelligent 
mother, of her own children, wherein three single births are 
recorded as occurring within a period of five months, and although 
the record had so stood for many years, no one of the family had 
discovered the anachronism. Some of the dates herein given, 
will be found to differ from those sent, but this may not imply 
error; many have been corrected by better evidence, either at 
hand or elsewhere obtained ; or by collateral circumstances. 

I have taken the liberty also, to correct the orthography of 
many names sent me ; but where the family has persisted in some 
new form, I have followed the spelling, however peculiar. Pet 
names have been a pest to me: such as Winny, for Edwin; Nielly, 
for Daniel; Retta, for Margaret; Lina, for Caroline, and even 
Donny, for. plain, honest John, etc., etc., causing me much cor- 
respondence to ascertain the real names, and probably some of 
these spurious names are still uncorrected. All genealogies are 
more or less vitiated and corrupted, by these future mischief- 
breeding, pet aliases. 

The work will be found more full and complete in dates of 
births, marriages, deaths, and other details, than most similar 
works; and to perfect these, has been a great additional labor. 
Many of the family, not fully appreciating the importance of these 
details, have not given them in the records sent, notwithstanding 
the explicit requests in my letters and circulars; and in very 
many instances have reported names merely, omitting all dates ; 
and it has been only by subsequent and oft-repeated explicit 
solicitations, that I have been able, at last, to obtain them. 

It was not the original purpose to embrace in this catalogue, 
the descendants of females, whose names were changed by mar- 
riage, beyond their children, or at most their grandchildren ; but 
after the work was brought down to the living generations, and it 
became necessary to obtain the fiu-ther records by a wide corres- 
pondence, it soon became evident, that it was upon the females of 
the family that I had mainly to depend. As a general rule, the 
fathers and brothers, of the agnatic lines, were not only ignorant 
of, but indilferent to their pedigree and kinship, while the mothers 
and daughters were better informed in the matter, and much more 
interested. And as far the greater portion of the later records 
has been gathered and sent me by the zealous labors of these 



PREFACE. • 9 

very mothers and daughters, it lias seemed to me a most ungra- 
cious return, to shut their own offspring out of the family group ; 
and the -more especially so, when the real fact is considered, that 
they inherit just as truly, and just as much, of the Harris blood, 
as do any of the agnatic lines, still bearing the Harris name. 

There is a popular fallacy about this matter of consanguinity, 
or blood relationship. Because the male line alone transmits the 
name, it has come to be considered that the male line, more 
especially transmits the blood. But this is an entire mistake; 
and is not only against all natural law, but also against the com- 
mon law of the land regarding the title of blood relation to the 
heirship of estates. The male line alone perpetuates the mere 
family name, but both the male and female lines, alike, and in 
equal degree, perpetuate the blood, whatever names they or their 
descendants, to the remotest generation, may chance to bear. 
They are equal heirs in blood, and equal heirs in law. 

The family as a whole, though not an illustrious one, shows a 
respectable and honorable record. But few of its members have 
been much distinguished in literature, art, science, or commerce. 
Tliey are generally agiiculturists and artisans, and of that class 
and rank which forms the stable and solid body of yeomanry of 
the land, and upon which the character, strength, and perpetuity 
of its free institutions, mainly rest. 

As among themselves, there is a too evident tendency to family 
segregation; too loose holding of the ties of kindred; too little 
cherishing of that natural bond of fraternal sentiment, which is 
one of the best and holiest instincts of humanity. The man who 
has no sympathy of kinship, and who cares not " to whom related 
or by whom begot," whatever other human attributes he may 
boast, is in this respect closely allied to the brutes, and in so far, 
is degraded to their condition. I note this with reluctance, but 
the indifference which, especially in some particular branches, 
has too often met this effort to restore the lost memorials of our 
dead, and to unite and brighten the scattered links in the chain 
of our living, constrains me to give utterance to a very great and 
unpleasant surprise. 

But there is another and a brighter side to this picture. Many, 
very many, have responded most cordially and promptly, to the 
object and spirit of the work, and by their ready and zealous 
2 



10 PREFACE. 

co-operation, have rendered not only valuable and essential aid, 
but have encouraged me and cheered me on in my labor; for 
which, both for myself, and in behalf of the whole clan, my most 
grateful thanks are due. 

And there has been another source of high gratification and 
pleasure. I had heard much in my young days, now long ago, 
from my honored grandfather Nathaniel Harris, and his children, 
of his, and their, earlier relatives, who had become widely scat- 
tered; and as I have stood in the focal light of this wide corres- 
pondence, gathering in the rays which have come to me from 
every quarter, and have traced out, one after another, the living 
descendants of these old relatives, long since gone from earth, it 
has awakened a flood of old memories, and has seemed to create 
a reunion, in sympathy and spirit — a fraternal communion with 
the whole clan, living and dead. And if this grouping together 
of these descendants, and giving the " name and local habitation" 
of each of the living ones, shall awaken kindred emotions, and 
lead to a more general inter-family communion and correspond- 
ence, I shall have a special pride and pleasure in sending the 
work down to our posterity, associated with my name. 

It is not sti-ange that many persons should wonder at so great 
an expenditure of time, labor, and money, in dry and tedious 
researches of this character. It is sometimes a wonder to myself. 
The impulse springs perhaps more from the instincts, than the 
reason, but whatever may be its source, it is potential in its influ- 
ence, sometimes becoming almost a passion ; and were it not for 
this, but few of the many valuable family genealogies of which the 
past few years have been so prolific, would ever have seen the light. 

There are, however, valid reasons in favor of such labors ; for, 
aside from the gratification they afford to many, who desire to 
know about their ancestry, and to see the grouping together of 
their kindred; aside from the value which they may hereafter 
have, in furnishing and preserving evidence of heirship, manifold 
their cost ; aside from their value to the genealogist, the antiqua- 
rian, and the general public, there are other, and still higher views 
of their value. If it was an honor to a Roman, to be able to 
boast a pedigree back to the founders of that brilliant empire, — 
if it ennobled and inspired the ancient Greek, if he could make 
the same proud boast, — if it be to-day, regarded as a high badge 



PREFACE. 11 

of renown, to an English subject, if he can show a lineage back to 
the days of the Conqueror William, and his followers, — in short, if 
this descent from the founders of Empire, has always, and every- 
where, been held in the highest renown, how much more, in the 
days to come, will it be counted an honor, to be ranked among 
those who have descended from the first founders of this new, but 
already great and illustrious Republic, on this new continent, of a 
newly-discovered World ! And unless this evidence is now, or 
soon, sought out and preserved, it never can be. The inexorable 
tooth of time is fast demolishing the musty and decaying records, 
and in a few brief years no trace of their story will be left. I 
have already put upon record this evidence, in regard to the pedi- 
gree of my own paternal line of ancestry, in the genealogy of the 
" Morgan Family," published in 1869 ; and I now herein record 
the like evidence, in my maternal line, in this souvenir of the 
Harris family. And although they both result, as I clearly fore- 
saw they must, in some pecuniary loss to myself, yet I submit to 
the judgment of a practical world, whether it is not wiser, and bet- 
ter, to leave behind, the fruits of such a labor, than the wealth of 
a Cresus, with a costly monument, but worthless memory, for a 
brood of ungrateful and dissolute heirs to wrangle over, and 
squander, in lives of riot and dissipation. And this I have been 
enabled to do, in the spare intervals of, and without detriment to 
the more pressing duties of, an otherwise active and busy life. 

There is a deep significance and a profound philosophy in that 
Divine economy, enjoined upon the ancient Israelites — that chosen 
people — to preserve their ancient pedigrees, and to hold in sacred 
veneration the memory of their forefathers. 

This striking feature is a study worthy of all who, under Provi- 
dence, are entrusted with the preservation and perpetuity of 
nations and of peoples. Not only every family, but every tribe 
of Israel, was required to preserve sacredly its lineage and pedi- 
gree ; and the whole nation was trained to consider itself a fra- 
ternity of "kindred according to the flesh;" bound together by 
the ties of blood and brotherhood, and made one in sympathy, one 
in hope, and one in destiny. They were all, alike, and everywhere, 
the children of Abraham — not merely in name, but verily his 
seed — and the, links and ligaments of this relation were kept 
sacred and bright, in every household, and in every tribe. 

And so it was, that when the child Jesus was born of this race, 






12 PREFACE. 

though of a humble and obscure family, Matthew was able, at 
once, to give his paternal pedigree, as the son of Joseph, back 
through forty-two generations to Abraham. — 3Iatt., chap. i. 

And so it was, that the more learned and scholarly Luke, could 
give the record oi his maternal pedigree, as the son of Maiy, 
away back through seventy-six generations to Adam. — Luke, 
chap. iii. 

And so it is, that the power of this sentiment of family relation, — 
this fraternal bond, — has held this people together, amid all their 
trials, persecutions, captivities, banishments, and dispersions, and 
is holding them together to-day, though scattered over the whole 
world, in the unity of one people — a people without a codntry ! — 
A NATION WITHOUT A HOME ! — but still indissoluble; and all wait- 
ing for the restoration of Israel, and the reestablishment of the 
reign of the ancient House of David. 

Coat Armor, Origin of Name, etc. 

Almost every family in our land, especially of New England 
stock, boasts its traditional " Coat of Arms." Our Harris fam- 
ily has one, a cojjy of which is here 
represented; and while I feel in cour- 
tesy called upon by many enquiries from 
various sources, about our family " coat 
of arms," to make some response to 
these enquiries, 1 take, personally, no 
great interest in this matter, and place 
but little reliance upon the authenticity 
of most of these traditional family em- 
blems. 

Coats of arms were early in use, both as a sign or signet of 
personal identity, and also as a badge of honor and distinction. 
The use of such device was more generally granted to some par- 
ticular individual, in token of some meritorious act or conduct on 
his part ; and the use, in such case, was limited to him personally, 
and not transmissible to his descendants. It was also sometimes 
granted as a general badge of distinction and honor ; and in such 
cases, often made hereditary in the male line of the name, like other 
claims by heirship. Very few American families, therefore, can 
establish any proper claim to the use of coat armor. In order to 
do this, they must be able to show, first, that the original grant 




PREFACE. 13 

for its use was made hereditary in the family; and secondly, 
must be able to prove their own pedigree, in a direct line, up to 
the original grantee. 

These, as I understand the matter, are the general principles 
upon which the special claim to use coat armor must be founded. 
Our family claim to the coat of arms here represented, rests, there- 
fore, upon just as good a foundation of traditional evidence, as 
does that of most others, and maij be as genuine as the best of 
them ; as the following will show : 

I find in Burke's Encyclopedia of English Heraldry, a descrip- 
tion of thirty-four different coats of arms, which have been 
granted, at various times, to as many ditYerent persons of the 
Harris name ; ten of which bear upon the shield or escutcheon, 
the device of the hedge-hog, in some form, either as a principal or 
inferior device ; and among the tliirty-four there is one very simi- 
lar to our traditional one, viz. : 

" Harris — Ar. — a lion, rampant, Gu. — over all a chevron 
Or." — which means, in common language: on a shield of silver 
(argent') — a lion, red, {gules) — erect on hind legs, {rampant), 
bearing a chevron, gold ( Or.) 

The description attached to ours is as follows : 

"Harris. — Ar. — a lion, rampant, Sa. — over all a chevron. 
Ermine. — Crest, a falcon, with wings expanded, Or.'" — which 
means; on a shield, of silver {argent) a lion, rampant, black 
{sable) — bearing a chevron, ermine {white with black spots). 
Crest, a falcon, gold — {Or). 

It will be seen that the devices and their arrangement, on both 
of the above escutcheons, are exactly alike, and differ only in 
emblazonry, or color. The one in Burke has no crest, but the 
crest was never part of the escutcheon proper, and only an appen- 
dage. The colors, also, were sometimes varied; as a matter of 
individual taste merely. 

Berry, in his Encyclopedia Heraldica, gives a list of twenty-five 
Harris coats of arms, of which seven bear, in some form, the sign 
of the hedge-hog, and one similar to ours as described by Burke. 

Edmundson, in his " Body of Heraldry," gives a list of seventeen 
Harris coats, five of which show the hedge-hog device, and one 
like ours, as in Burke, and another nearly Hke it. 



14 FJl E F A C E . 

The following interesting comments upon this subject, are 
extracts from a letter kindly sent me in 1850 by an esteemed 
friend, now deceased,* and are far more worthy of a place here 
than anything I can offer. 

Extract. — "There are many different coats of arms, borne by 
persons of our name in England. The most common are those 
in which hedge-hogs (porcupines) are introduced. This kind of 
coat is really a pun upon our name, which varied much in its 
orthography, as Heriz, Herris, Harries, Harris, Harries, etc. 
The language of Heraldry is Norman French, introduced into 
England by the Conqueror William, and his followers. H^risson, 
is French for hedge-hog, and this cognizance was granted in allu- 
sion to the family name, which to Norman ears, has nearly the same 
sound. Hence some have inferred that Harris was a Norman 
French name. I believe it, however, to be pure English, or rather 
Welch. The final s, is the sign or termination of the possessive 
case ; so that Harris, signifies of Harry ; or of the family of Harry. 
In the same way Adam has, in the possessive, become Adams; 
Jacob has become Jacobs; John has become Johns, or Jones, etc. 
Thus, too, in the Welch form, derived from op, signifying son^ 
Harry becomes ap Harry, i.e. of Harry, or Harry's; so that 
'Farris is the son of Harris. My ingenious friend, the Rev. Wil- 
liam Jenks, D. D., who is of the Providence Harris lineage, of 
Welch descent, first called my attention to the above derivation, 
and assures me that our name is really old English, or Welch. 
The name was common in South Wales, and there is a little town 
there by the name of Harriston, near Haverford West, from whence 
Owen Harris of Boston probably emigrated, and where, as appears 
by his will, he left relatives. Mr. Kraitsir says, that Harry and 
Harris come from Henry, and the latter is Norman, having the 
same origin as Heinrich and Hainrich, that is, rich in home or 
household possessions. This is doubtless the derivation of Henry. 
Is it that of Harry also? Does not the latter come from some 
other root? Hearra, Anglo-Saxon, signifies a lord or master. 
Herr, in German, is Sir, or Lord; Herra, Heri, and Harri, in 
Icelandic, signify a king; Rhi, Welch, " dominicus baro nohiles;" 
A-Rhi, Gaelic, — Sire; fferas, Latin, master of a family. From 

* Doctor Thaddena William Harria, the late widely known, learned, and accomplished 
librarian of Cambridge College, whose singular line of descent is given in the 
Appendix to this volume, Nos. 34 to 40, inclusive. 



PREFACE. 16 

one of these, or from some cognate root, I should more hopefully 
seek to derive the name of Harry or Harris." 

Lower, on English family names, the leading and most able 
authority, says: 

"Harris comes from Henry, through Harry and Harrison. 

Henry — a personal name of Norman origin, which has given 
birth, in a modified form, to many surnames; including Harry, 
Harrison (Harry's son), Henri'son, Henson,Herries, Harris, etc., 
and in the Welch, ap. Henry (of Henry, in the possessive), op

Tims, as Henry has given names to the most numerous group 
of English monarchs, so it has also furnished surnames for a

I close with reproducing here the following from the preface 
to my Genealogy of the Morgah Family : 

A genealogy of dry names 'and dates can have but little inter- 
est to the general reader. It is said that when Doct. Noah 
Webster had got his first American Dictionary into print, he sent 
a copy to an old friend, not expecting a very critical examination. 
In due time his friend acknowledged the compliment, with the 
remark that the book seemed to abound in ^^^^-^ words enough, 
but that he could not get the run of the story. The same criti- 
cism may bo applied to volumes of this kind; and yet a writer in 
the N. T. Evangelist, eloquently says : 

" We were looking carelessly over a genealogy of the Minot 
family, in the second number of the New England Genealogical 
Register, when suddenly our eyes were suffused with tears, as they 
rested on the following sentence, in the catalogue of the children 
of Capt. John Minot, who died in Dorchester, 1669. 

"Martha, b. 22 Sept., 1657, d. single, 23 Nov., 1678, age 21. She was engaged 
to be married, but d. unmarried, leaving a will in which she directed that at her 
funeral, her betrothed husband, 'John Morgan, jun., be all over in mourning, and fol- 
low next after me.' 

" What a history is there in these few words about Martha 
Minot, who lived two centuries ago ! The mind runs back in a 
moment to those times when almost all New England was a wil- 
derness; to those days of the old Indian wars, when no man 



16 PREFACE. 

could be a captain without being a man of some rank and conse- 
quence. Just after the close of King Philip's war, when the 
settlements of New England were all in peace, Capt. John Minot's 
daughter Martha, twenty-one years of age, and having come into 
possession of her share of the estate of her father, had plighted 
her troth to one she loved and expected to marry, when disease 
fastened upon her young frame and would not be repelled. In 
the chill November air, when 

' The melancholy days were come, the saddest of the year,' 

she faded like a leaf. And at her burial there followed — nearer 

than brother or sister — nearest of all to the hearse — the one, 

whom of all others she most loved ; from whom to part had been to 

her more painful than the death-pang ; and who had been in her 1 

thoughts till ' the love light in her eye,' was extinguished in death. f 

That single item in her funeral directions, that ' John Morgan, | 

jun., be all over in mourning and follow next after me,' tells the 

whole story." I 

Nothing, at first sight, seems less interesting, or less instructive, 4 

than a genealogical table — a mere register of names and dates. 
But such a passage as that which is here quoted ; so picturesque, so 
suggestive, so touching, so dramatiq — when it occurs in the midst 
of these dry records, throws out an electric light at every link in 
the chain of the generations. Each of these names, in the table, 
is the memorial, perhaps the only memorial, of a human lieart 
that once lived and died — a heart that kept its steady pulsations 
through some certain period of time, and then ceased to beat, and 
mouldered into dust. Each of these names is the memorial of 
an individual human life, that had its joys and sorrows; its cares 
and burdens ; its affections and hopes ; its conflicts and achieve- 
ments ; its opportunities, wasted or improved, and its hour of 
death. Each of these dates of "birth," "marriage," "death!" 
Oh! how significant! What a day, was each of these, to some 
human family, or to some circle of loving, human hearts.

JAMES HARRIS OF BOSTON, 

And His Descendants. 



"Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations; ask thy 
f;ither and he will shew thee; tliy elders, and they will tell thee." — Deut. xxxii, 7. 

"The man who feels no sentiment of veneration for the memory of his forefathers; 
who has no natural regard for his ancestors or his kindred, is himself unworthy of 
kindred regard or remembrance." — Daniel Webster. 

GENERATION I. 

1. James Harris of Boston, Mass., 
Born about 1640, married Sarah Denison of Boston, in 1666. 
His place of nativity, parentage, and time of advent into this 
country, I have been unable to ascertain. He anc his wife Sarah 
have the births of eleven children recorded in BoJ ;on. There is, 
in fact, a twelfth child recorded, by the name of James, without 
date of birth, his eldest son James being then living ; and it has 
been conjectured that this second James was the son of a second 
wife, to whose children it was sometimes the custom of that day to 
give the duplicate name of an elder half brother or sister ; but 
this conjecture is exploded by the fact that I have recently dis- 
covered in the early Probate records of New London, Conn., that 
Sarah, the first and only wife of James of Boston, outlived her 
husband, and was made executrix of his last will, dated at N. 
London, 4 June, 1714, and proved in Probate there 13 Sept., 1715, 
in which he Ijequeathed to her his whole estate during her natural 
life. The Boston record of this twelfth child is therefore a man- 
ifest clerical error, made by a second entry of the first James. 
All of these eleven children, except the last three, and Margaret, 
who d. an infant, were baptized in the " Old South Meetlng 
House " of Boston, in 1683.

The accidental discovery, by me, of this will in the old Probate 
files of N. London, .within the past year, was indeed a very great 
and most agreeable snrprise; for it had long been an unsolvable 
problem among the leading genealogists of New England to dis- 
cover what ever became of this Boston Jas. Harris, no trace of 
him being found anywhere after the record of the births of his 
children ; and in the solution of this problem I had myself 
specially labored for more than thirty years. I have, therefore, 
great pleasure in clearing up this mystery by publishing here the 
following will:

From the best evidence I can now find, it appears that our 
Boston ancestor and his wife Sarah came to N. London from 
Boston about 1690, with all three of his sons, James, Asa, and 
Ephraim, all minors, the eldest about 17 years of age, and at 
least two or more of his daughters ; but where he resided there, 
or what was his occupation, if any, while there, I have not been 
able to discover, though it is probable that he was by trade a 
weaver. The Boston record, referred to, shows the dates of birth 
of the children as' follows:

Feb., 1757, aged 84, nearly, and he and both his wives, one on 
each side, were buried together in ancient Mohegan, about a mile 
or more southeasterly from the old meeting house in Montville, 
a double slate stone, of the old style, still marking the spot, and 
bearing the following inscription : 




IN MEMORY OF 
MRS. SARAH HARRIS, 
SECOND WIFE OF 
JAMES HARRIS. 
SHE DIED Oct. 8, 1752, 
IN The 48 YEAR OF 
HER AGE. 



IN MEMORY OF 
MRS. SARAH HARRIS, 
FIRST WIFE OF 
Mr. JAMES HARRIS. 
SHE DIED Nov. 13,

The space underneath was left by him for an inscription to liis 
own memory, but his youngest sou, Lebbeus, in whose family lie 
died, and who settled his estate, removed soon after to Nova 



GENERATIONII. 21 

Scotia, and the inscription in memory of this worthy old patriarch 
remains still unwritten. 

In 1698, he removed from N. London to Mohegan, and settled 
upon a tract of land granted by Owaneco, the Mohegan Sachem, 
to his wife Sarah, adjoining lands of her father, Samuel Rogers, 
who had already settled there. His wife Sarah was an especial 
friend and favorite of Owaneco, and herself and her husband soon 
became the recipients of large grants of land from that Sachem. 
While at N. London he styled himself " Jas. Harris, weaver;" 
but after his removal to Mohegan, he drops that appellative and 
substitutes that of " husbandman." He might well have added 
that of " landholder " also. 

The general range of hunting grounds over which the claims 
of the Mohegan tribe at this period extended, covered nearly the 
whole of the colony lying east of the Conn. River; but the lands 
wliich were under the more immediate occupancy of the tribe 
were mostly comprised witliin the general limits of the present 
County of N. London, and their council fires and the seat of tlieir 
Sachems were at Mohegan, now the town of Montville. The first 
grant of any of these lands, north of the settlement of N. Lon- 
don, was made by the old Sachem Uncas, father of Owaneco, in 
1658, to Richard Haughton and James Rogers, the grandfather 
of Sarah, tlie wife of James Harris ; and consisted of valuable 
tracts near the river Thames at places called Massapeag and 
Pamachaug, below present Norwich. The first grant to the set- 
tlers at Norwich was made by Uncas the year following. 

The first white settler upon these lands was Samuel Rogers, 
the father of our Sarah, in about 1671. His good friend Uncas 
had persuaded him to settle in his neighborhood, and as an 
inducement, had given him a valuable tract of land upon 
" Oxoboxa Brook," and had further promised, in case of inroads 
by prowling bands of Narragansetts, a troublesome tribe of 
Indians lying on the east, that he would rally at once with his 
wari'iors for his protection. 

Rogers built a house of hewn plank upon this land, surrounded 
it with a stockade, and mounted a small cannon in front, the firing 
of which was to be the signal of alarm. Soon after, the boom of 
this gun was heard echoing through the forest, and in a few 
minutes Uncas, with his grim warriors, came rushing to the 
rescue of his friends. Rogers, to palliate the experimental trick, 



22 



GENERATION II. 



had prepared a feast for their reception; but the deliglited war- 
riors relished the cunning artifice, so in keeping with their own 
notions of strategy, as keenly as they did the banquet. 

Uncas died in 1684, and Owaneco, his eldest son and successor 
as Sachem, died in 1715, and was succeeded by his son, Cczar 
Uncas. Between all tliese Sachems and the Rogers family there 
had ever existed a strong and intimate personal friendship; and 
in tliis friendly relation Jas. Harris and his wife Sarah warmly 
participated ; Jas. himself becoming an especial favorite with the 
whole tribe. Luleed, this cordial relation between the Mohegan 
tribe jind Jas. Harris and his descendants has been perpetuated 
down to the present century. I have often, when a boy, heard 
my grandfather, Nathaniel Harris, relate instances of this friend- 
ship, and have seen many of the sad remnants of this tribe on 
their frequent and friendly visits to his old homestead in Salem, 
where they always found a welcome. My honored mother, in her 
early childhood, had acquired so considerable a knowledge of their 
dialect as to be able to converse with them, to a fair extent, in 
their own language. 

Owaneco and his successors were lavish in their grants of land 
to James and Sarah Harris, and they soon became large land- 
holders. Grants and transfers of land are found on record all 
over ancient Mohegan, from N. London as far northerly as Nor- 
wich and Colchester; sometimes in the name of his wife, "Sarah 
Harris, by the consent of her husband, Jas. Harris;" sometimes 
by "James Barris, with the consent of his wife, Sarah;" and 
sometimes jointly by both. These joint deeds are found as late 
as 1725, or later, but afterwards all his deeds and transfers were 
made in his own name. 

Grants of land had also been made by Uncas and the succeed- 
ing Mohegan Sachems, witli a lavish hand, to other parties. 
These lands had but little or no value in the minds of these rude 
sons of the forest , except as hunting and fishing grou nds, and as their 
use for these purposes were generally reserved to the tribe in their 
deeds, they were quite as ready to sell in exchange for a few glit- 
tering baubles, knives, hatchets, or a few pieces of silver coin, as 
the whites were to buy. They thought it a cunning bargain to 
obtain these coveted articles by merely making their mark upon 
one of these "paper gifts," as they called them. Of the leal 
character and contents of these " paper gifts," their extent and 



GENERATIONII. 23 

boundaries, they could, of course, know nothing, only as they 
were explained to them by the interested and avaricious pur- 
chaser ; and this combination of ignorance and cunning on the 
part of the Sachems, and of avarice and cupidity on the part of 
tlie whites, produced its inevitable fruits. The boundaries of dif- 
ferent grants were found constantly overlapping each other; the 
same tracts were often granted to different parties by the same 
Sachem, or by rival Sachems and chiefs claiming title, until an 
inextricable confusion and conflict of title ensued, which involved 
not only the parties, but the colonial government itself, in a bitter 
controversy, lasting for more than seventy years; during which 
the power of the British Crown was several times invoked to inter- 
pose by the appointment of commissioners, and several commis- 
sions were appointed to hear and determine the controversy, but 
without avail. 

And when it is remembered that the Mohegan territory extended 
in fact over the whole of N. London Co., and over the southern 
two-thirds of the counties of Windham and Tolland, embracing 
some 8,000 square miles of territory, over most of which Uncas 
and his successors had strewn these " paper gifts " in the same 
confusion of title and boundaries, the problem to be solved by 
these commissioners can be easily seen to have been a vast as 
well as perplexing one. 

When Queen Ann's commissioners sat at Stonington in 1705, 
Capt. John Prentice testified that he had surveyed about 3,000 
acres of Indian grants between N. London and Norwich, to Sam- 
uel Rogers, Samuel Rogers jr., James Harris, and fifteen others 
of less note, and that thirteen persons had then settled upon them. 
Land speculation became rife in this wild territory at this period, 
and Owaneco scattered his " paper gifts" like autumn leaves to 
all his greedy friends; but in 1710, May 10th, that Sachem made 
a conveyance of much greater note and moment than any prior 
grant. By a single mark of his pen he passed in a sweeping gen- 
eral deed to four persons, viz., John Livingston, Robert Denison, 
Samuel Rogers, jr., and James Harris, all the Mohegan lands 
between N. London and Norwich which he had not before alien- 
ated, comprising many thousand acres; reserving to himself and 
his tribe only a small portion for their own rude culture and 
occupation in the eastern part of Montville. The price paid was 
only fifty pounds. 



24 GENERATIONII. 

In all these controversies and hearings before the severarcom- 
missions of the Colony and the commissions of the Crown, Jas. 
Harris and the Rogerses bore a conspicuous part; the former 
especially appearing as an active manager, both for himself and 
for his dusky Mohegan friends. At one time he presented to the 
General Court, bills of his expenses during a single hearing, 
amounting to over ,£193, as taxed by the commissioners ; among 
them a bill of <£10 13s. 'J d., '■' for feasting the Indians at their 
meeting for revocation;" and another of ,£8 3s. lOd., "for 
expenses while remaining among the Mohegans and keeping them 
in good humor.'''' The General Court, however, refused to allow 
only =£100 of the amount. 

Early in the controversy, even before 1700, the General Court 
at Hartford had seen that this conflict of title, extending, so 
widely over the eastern section of the Colony, would throw its 
blighting influence over the whole domain and impede its settle- 
ment and prosperity, unless some measure of relief could be 
devised ; and they wisely adopted the policy of cutting all knots 
which could not be untied. That policy was the foreshadowing 
of the modern doctrine of " Squatter Sovereignty," and they pro- 
ceeded to apply it. 

Land patents for whole townships were granted by the General 
Court, from time to time, to the actual settlers within their 
respective limits, containing provisions for an allotment to each, 
of a fair proportion of land for his own culture, and paying little 
or no regard to any Indian grant that stood in the way. Tiiis 
policy, in a few years, practically swept away most of the large 
Indian land grants held by the great land-holders and speculators, 
and in the end put this long and angry controversy for ever at 
rest. 

The large and numerous land transactions of our old ancestor, 
James, involved him not only in the various hearings before the 
commissioners, as already related, but also in a long series of 
lawsuits before the courts of the Colony, lasting for thirty years. 
The court records at Hartford show him as a constant litigant 
there with different parties from the time of his settlement at 
Mohegan, in 1698 to 1730, or later. 

It is apparent that these lawsuits and the ' public squatter sover- 
eignty ' policy, had together resulted in the end, in sweeping 
away most of his broad acres, and circumscribing his boundaries 



I 



GENERATION. II. . 25 

within very materially diminished limits. In fact, some portions 
of the very lands he had purchased from Ovvaneco, and which he 
had never alienated, he afterwards repurchased at a pretty round 
sum. The following abstract from Montville land records is not 
only interesting in relation to this subject, but is also curious as 
showing the character and kind of property which was sometimes 
conveyed by such instruments in those days. 

Abstract of Deed of Major John Merritt or N. London, Conn., to Lieut. 
Jas. Harris of Colchester, dated 20 Aug., A. D. 1726; 

Consideration £5,000; conveying all his lands, " situated within 
the towns of New London, Norwich, & Colchester, together & 
undivided between the said Merritt & Mrs. Mercy Raymond ; 
being one-half of all lands held in join^ tenancy with s^ Mercy 
Raymond ; consisting of a farm at Massapeag, containing by esti- 
mation 400 .acres; also the Great Farm on which the said John 
Merrit & Mercy Raymond now live " * * * * (lying on both sides 
of the highway leading over Raymond Hill in Montville), "con- 
taining 1,800 acres; also a farm lying near the line between 
Norwich & Colchester" * * * *; "including all Indian Pur- 
chases, Court Grants, &c., within the limits of the three towns 
aforesaid ; together with my negro man called Cesar ; my negro 
boy called Joe ; my negro woman Rose ; negro man Samson ; 
negro man Bussoe ; negro man Sharper ; negro woman called 
Sylvia, & her child ; my negro boy Peleg ; & negro boy Andrew ; 
also all my stock of neat cattle, horses, goats, sheep & swine. " * * 

Executed before Michael Tainter of Col., Justice of Peace, Peter 
Pratt and Pelatiah Bliss, witnesses. 

Two of the above personal chattels, Samson and Rose, were 
re-sold to Major ]\Ierritt, and were included in the following transfer 
by Jas. Harris to Major Merritt, dated 20 Feb., 1729, of " all his 
right to certain negro slaves, viz., one negro man named Samson; 
one Indian hoy named George ; 1 negro woman named Rose ; & 
1 negro woman named Phillis." — Norwich Land Rec, Vol. VI., p. 129. 

It is noticeable that one of these negro slaves is an Indian boy 
named George. Now, it has been denied by New England histo- 
rians that our Puritan ancestors ever reduced any of the Indian 
race to a state of domestic slavery, except a few captives taken 
in war by the first settlers of Massachusetts, and sent to the 
West Indies. But Jas. Harris was a Puritan of the old stamp; 
4

a church-member, and a God-fearing and God-serving man in his 
day; and moreover, a special friend and favorite of the Indians ; 
and there are too many instances like the above, found in our 
early land records and other documents, to leave room for such 
denial, though the custom was not common. 

In 1739, Feb. 11, he gave the following deed to his sons Jona- 
than and Lebbeus Harris, which embraced a portion of the fend 
bought of Merritt at Massapeag and Colchester. 

To all people to whom these Presents shall come, greeting:

In 1714, May 20, he was commissioned Lieut, of the North Co. 
of N. London, and by this title was ever known, although after- 
wards commissioned Capt. of another Co. in Colchester. 

In 1718, he removed to the south part of Colchester (now 
Salem), where he continued to reside until a short time before 
his death, in 1757. He was admitted an inhabitant of Colches- 
ter by vote in town meeting, 22 Dec, 1718. In 1720-21-22, and 
perhaps later, he was licensed by the General Court at Hartford 
as " a taverner," and during the same years, '20, '21, and '22, he 
was chairman of a committee on the part of Colchester to act as 
managers in the settlement of a controversy with Norwich, before 
a commission appointed by the General Court, about their respec- 
tive town boundaries. In 1725, Oct. 19, he and his son Jas., and 
sixteen others, petitioned the General Court for a new military 
company in the parish of New Salem, and presented a roll of 
sixty-four men ready to enlist; his own name and those of his 
sons James and Jonathan among them. Of this company he was 
afterwards chosen and commissioned Captain, but probably only 
with a view to its early organization, as he resigned soon after. 
He was " Townsman," or Selectman, of Colchester in 1730 and 
'31, and later. 

The Parish of New Salem was constituted from the south 
part of Colchester, the north part of Lyme, and a part of Mont- 
ville, by the General Court, April 27, 1725, on the petition of 
Lieut. James Harris and others, with power to settle and support

a minister; and in 1819, the same territory was constituted 
the present town of Salem ; the old boundary between Col- 
chester and Lyme being what was called the old Lyme road, or 
more generally, " the Governor's Road," leading from Salem cen- 
ter, near the present Music Vale Seminary, eastward towards 
Montville and Norwich. The counties of Hartford and N. London 
were also divided by the same line, Colchester being then in 
Hartford Co. It Avas on this road that James Harris lived, his 
broad lands lying on each side of it, and his house standing on 
the north side. ' V 

In 1726, Nov. 10, he gave the following deed for the benefit of 
the new parish, of a meeting-house lot, burying ground, and 
training field :

his brother James ; removed from Mohegan soon after marriage,

he died 20 Aug., 1715, aged 35. Administration on his estate 
was granted to his widow Elizabeth, 15 Sept., 1715, and in Nov. 
following she presented inventory of his personal " goods and 
chattels," amounting to X109 6s. 4d. Jas. Harris and Robert 
Denison were her sureties as administratrix. In 1711, Apl. 6, 
Samuel Rogers, her father, gave a deed " to my (his) dau. Eliza- 
beth, & to her husband, Asa Harris, of 12 acres of swamp land " 
(four or five miles north of N. London), " up Alewive Brook, near 
Lake Pond." [N. London Land Records, Vol. 8, p. 93.] 

Soon after his death the family removed from Preston to Say- 
brook, where his widow Elizabeth died, about 1750. In 1753, the 
sons Asa, then of Saybrook, and Ephraim, then of Lyme, sold the 
above " 12 acres of swamp land," which they " held, undivided," 
between them " and the children of our deceased sisters, Anna 
Beebe and Mercy Waterhouse," to Richard Chapel of N. London. 
Asa and Elizabeth have the births of the following children on

to the deed of their brother James, to Thos. Joues, of land at 
Mohegan. No trace of him is found later than 1707, and from 
other circumstances it is probable that he died before 1710 — 
unmarried.

and soon after removed to Bean Hill in Norwich. A part of this

ill 1726, and surveyor in 17-27. In 1728, Feb. 14, he bought of 
Peter Pratt, a house, barn, and three acres of land at Saybrook, 
removed to that town the spring following, and built a store upon 
what is still called the " Harris wharf," where he afterwards 
became widely known as a very extensive and successful mer- 
chant, having a large export and import trade with the West 
Indies ; and also importing from France and the East Indies, 
spices and fine fabrics of laces, silks, and brocades. His ledger 
from 1729 to 1743 is still preserved, and shows large dealings in 
general merchandise, embracing dry goods, groceries, hardware, 
crockery and glassware, lumber, farm products, <fec., &g. ; his 
custom coming from every part of X. London Co., and from Col- 
chester and Long Island. He was admitted to church in Saybrook, 
1736, and his wife Mercy was admitted by letter in 1741. 

In 1744 he sold his real estate at Saybrook, and removed to 
Mohegan, N. London North Parish, where he and his wife united 
with the church by letter ; but in 1747 he was living in N. Lon- 
don, and in 1748, Jan. 16, he "James Harris, jun., of New Lon- 
don, yeoman," repurchased the Saybrook property of Wm. French, 
of N. London, " it being the same which he, the said James Har- 
ris, formerly occupied, possessed, and enjoyed in said Saybrook," 
and the spring following he resumed his old business there, in 
which he continued until after 1766, and probably until his death, 
the date of which is not known. He was born 26 Jan., 1699. 

He was twice married. His first wife was Ann Gilbert, dau. 
of Samuel Gilbert of N. London (and wife Mary, dau. of Sam'l 
Rogers). She died childless about 1739, and he next mar. Mercy 
Thatcher of Montville, about 1741, by whom he had one child 
only, a dau. who bore the joint names of Ann Mercy from both 
wives. 

The story of this idolized child is a sad one. Sole heiress of a 
princely fortune ; of great personal beauty and loveliness of char- 
acter ; accomplished in all that the best local instructors of that 
day could impart ; at the age of 18 her parents decided to send 
her abroad for a couple of years for higher instruction in England, 
and for travel in Europe for the advantages of foreign social cul- 
ture. On the eve of her departure she was inoculated in order to 
guard against the danger of small-pox, then the dread of foreign 
travelers. But the virus proved fatal, and she died, after a few 
days of extreme sufiering, in the pest-house at Saybrook. This 



GENEB ATION III. 33 

sudden and tragic blow fell with crushing weight upon her 
parents, and cast a dark pall of gloom over the wide region 
tlirougliout which she was known and beloved. My gr. fa. Nath'l 
Harris, who was her cousin, with his three brothers, Jonathan, 
Jas., and Joseph, four elder sisters, and their parents attended 
the funeral ; and her extensive and elegant wardrobe, a special 
outfit for her foreign tour, of the richest silks and brocades in 
great variety, was distributed among her cousins as memorial 
gifts, and long preserved in the family as sacred relics and 
souvenirs. And even now, at this late day, it is probable that 
there are but few of our Harris family whose eyes may rest upon 
this page, who cannot recall to memory something of the tradi- 
tion of this sorrowful story. 

This daughter, as already stated, was their only

dau. of Hon. Joseph Otis, Esq., of the north parish of N. London, 
now Montville, 28 July, 1735. Judge Otis was a distinguished 
man. He came from Scituate, Mass., in 1722, in whicli l^tate he 
had l)een Judge of the Court of Common Pleas for Plymouth Co. 
from 1703 to 1710 ; Rep. in the Great and Gen. Court of Mass., 
1710-13, and was ever held in the highest esteem foi- great abili- 
ties, solid judgment, and sterling integrity of charactei-. He 
became a very large landholder in N. London, Colchester, Pom- 
fret, and other towns in Conn. His wife was Dorothy Thomas of 
Scituate, by wliom he had twelve children, three sons and nine 
daughters, of whom Rachel was the youngest. 

Rachel was a woman of marked natural abilities ; a noble mate 
to her husband, wlio was a man of commanding force and dignity 
of cliaracter, and fine personal presence. They settled at first in 
a small house a few rods southeast of the present old Harris 
Homestead in Salem, upon land of his father; but in 1739, 
Feb. 14, he and his brother Lebbeus bought this and other large 
tracts of land in Salem and Montville Parishes, of their father,

Lieut. Jas.*; upon which Jonathan soon after built the above 
homestead, which he afterwards occupied during his life, and 
which still remains in the Harris name and family. He was 
admitted a freeman in Colchester 3 Sept., 1739; and in 1756 and 
several other years was one of the selectmen. He and his wife 
Rachel, born 1 Dec, 1713, and the two youngest children, twins, 
all died suddenly in the month of Sept., 1761, of a malignant and 
wide-sweeping fever. He died on the 12th, age 56 yrs. 8 mos., 
and his wife on the 21st, age 47 yrs. 9 mos. and 20 days. His 
eldest (living) son, Jonathan, jun., was appointed administrator 
of his estate, Juno 7, 1762, and presented an inventory in part, 
amounting to ,£1,289 lis., including only the homestead property. 
Jonathan, jun., was also at the same time appointed guardian of 
two of his sisters, Hannah and Abigail. The estate was not dis- 
tributed until 1771, ten years after his death, and was then 
divided among his ten living children — four sons and sis daugh- 
ters. This worthy pair had thirteen children, and the name of 
this good mother Rachel has been perpetuated as an " heirloom " 
by her numerous descendants down to the present day.

the present Music Vale Seminary, but a few years after, removed 
to Montville, upon a part of the large tract of land which he and 
his brother Jonathan bought of their father, as before stated, in 
1739. His father, Lieut. Jas., died in the house of this son, " in 
Paugwonk, 10 Feb., 1757," in whose family he had lived after 
the death of his second wife in 1752. About 1760, he removed 
with all his family to Horton,, Kings Co., Nova Scotia, which, 
about this period, appears to have been a great point of migration 
for our Harris ancestry. Tradition has it that these early Harris 
emigrants were the founders of a numerous and conspicuous 
line of the name in Nova Scotia and the other British American 
Provinces; many of whom have been of public note, and several 
have held seats in the Colonial Parliaments. I have not been 
able to learn the address of any of these descendants, or to follow 
out their history. Lebbeus visited Colchester as late as 1771, 
with two of his sons, Lebbeus and Peleg R., and his nephew 
James, the son of his brother Jonathan, at which time he disposed 
of his interest in some pait of the estate of his father, James. 
He and his wife Alice have the births of the following children

1743, when that ledger ends. In 1758, "Asa Harris of Saybrook," 
deeds to Richard Chapel his interest in 12 acres of land near N. 
London, which he owned in "common and undivided," as the 
estate of his father, with his bro. Ephraim and " the children of 
our deceased sisters, Anna Beebe and Mercy Waterhouse." '"He

Ephraira Harris, 24, son of Asa, 

Born in Preston, 28 Dec, 1712, m. , about 1735 (prob- 
ably at Saybrook), but the name of his wife is unknown. He 
settled first in Saybrook, and his name is found there on the 
" old ledger" of his cousin Jas. Harris, the merchant, from 1738 
to 1743. From Saybrook lie removed, about 1745, to the north 
part of Lyme (now Salem), and from thence, in 1754, to Nova 
Scotia, where he remained several years. In 1762, Apl. 21, 
Chas. Dixon, Esquire, of Ilorton, Kings Co., Nova Scotia, "gave 
his bond under seal, to Ephraim Harris, yeoman of said Horton, 
in the sum of £500 lawful money of the Province of Nova Scotia," 
conditioned that said Dixon •' should remove said Ephraim Harris, 
and all his family and his household goods, to New London, Conn., 
and to Colchester, by the first vessel bound to those parts, and 
should pay all costs and charges of said removal ; and on arriv- 
ing at said Colchester, should give a deed to said Harris of a cer- 
tain tenement of land in said Col.; and also further should pay 
all the costs that shall arise, or have arisen on the rights of land 
in s"^ Horton township, of s<i Ephraim or of his son Ephraim 
junior, either in repairing or surveying, or any other costs; being 
two rights or shares in the whole." A deed of the land in Col- 
chester, referred to in the foregoing bond, was executed by Dixon 
to Harris at the same time, and both were witnessed by Lebbeus 
Harris and Nathan DeWolf of said Horton. The tract of land 
contained 51 acres, lying on Lyme line ("old Governor's Road"), 
price £200. On the arrival of Ephraim and family at Colchester, 
the bond and deed were both there recorded. 

He died in Colchester, Nov., 1781, aged 69, and his will, dated 
20 April, 1781, was presented in Probate at Col., 4 Dec, 1781, 
and is there on record. In this will he names twelve children, 
three sons and nine daughters then living. His wife died before 
him. His large landed estate, parly in Colchester and partly in 
Lyme, and also all his personal estate, and one-half of all his 
rights to land in Susquehannah, he bequeaths to his three sons ; 
reserving a part of the house and cellar for the use of three of 
his daughters, Lydia, Sarah, and Alice, " until they are married." 
He further provides that his three sons shall make up out of his 
estate, so much for each of these three unmarried daughters, as 
would make them equal to the apportionment which he had 



S8 



GENERATION III 



before made to each of his six other daughters ; gives the other 
half of his " Susquehannah Land Rights," equally to his nine 
daughters ; gives to his son Ephraim his "brass gun," to Elijah 
his "French gun," and to Elias " 1 Dutch plough, 1 hat, 1 great 
coat, 1 straight bodied coat, and 1 pair woolen breeches;" and 
makes his second son Elijah his sole executor. 

The dates of the births of his children, some of them occur- 
ring in Nova Scotia, are not exactly known, but those given are a 
near approximation. They probably had other children who had 
died, but it is remarkable that twelve were living, and the young- 
est of marriageable age at the time of his death.

soon after marriage removed to Goshen, Orange Co., New York, 
and thence to Newburgh, where he resided until 1789, when he 
removed to Athens, Bradford Co., Pa., and bought a tract of land 
south of Shepard's Creek, on the Susquehanna river, but fn 1800, 
lost it by a defect in fhe title. He afterwards removed to a part 
of the large farm of his son Alpheus, near " Spanish Hill," of 
legendary notoriety, where he lived with his son Samuel until his 
death. He was an upright and intelligent man, shrewd and 
somewhat eccentric and facetious. To a question once put to him 
as to the best buiness or occupation for a young man, his ready 
reply was that " loaning money was the best business he knew of, 
but very difficult to establish:' He died 14 Aug., 1820, aged 81 
yrs., 2 mos., 8 ds. ; and his wid. Lodema died 16 Sept., 1831, 
aged 90. He was a farmer. They had ten children ; the eldest

Salem Center, whence, in 1768, he removed to Horton township. 
Kings Co., Province of Nova Scotia, and became, according to 
family tradition, a successful trader in general merchandise and 
lands; leaving numerous descendants of the name, many of 
whom have been distinguished, and several have held seats in the 
British American Provincial Parliaments and other civil stations 
of honor. He re-visited his native Colchester July, 1771, but I 
have no further account of his family. 

Nathaniel Harris, 34, son of Jonathan, 
Born in Colchester (Salem Parish), 2 Apl., 1743, m. Mary Tozer 
of Col., 1st Feb., 1764, sister of Lodema, wife of his bro. Jona- 
than, and dau. of Samuel, son of Richard Tozer, one of the first 
settlers of Col. They settled on the old Harris Homestead, in 
Salem Parish, now Salem township, where they ever lived, and 
where they died ; and where all their thirteen children, five sons 
and eight daughters, were born. It is noteworthy that all these 
children lived to past middle age, all married and became heads 
of families, and that no shadow of evil habit, vice, crime, or stain 
of reputation ever rested upon a single one of them. 

He served in the war of the Revolution for at least six months, 
from May 25 to Nov. 25, 1777, as I find his name on the Pay 
Roll for that period ; and was at one time with the army at the 
'• Head of Elk " in Penn.; and although the tradition among his 
children was that he served during the war, there is no record of 
longer service, and the very regular births of his children during 
that war serves to show that he was never long absent from home. 
He held a commission, however, as Capt. in the State militia. 

He was a farmer, and I well remember him, for I am his grand- 
son, and bear his honored name by his own bestowment. He 
was a proud and high-toned man,— proud of his lineage and blood ; 
proud of his little wife and of his daughters ; proud of his farm

stock, of his full crops, and of his abundance and rich variety of 
choice fruits. Of stalwart frame and stately bearing, he was ever 
tender and gentle as a belted knight to all womankind and to 
children ; but among men he was dignified, austere, and even 
imperious and lordly. His little wife Mary, mated him most 
fitly in her sphere, ruling well her household, and inspiring all by 
the gentleness and potency of her influence and example. In his 
eyes she was a " spirit of the just, made perfect," and his daugh- 
ters were all '• angels." He died 12 Mch., 1812, aged 79, and 
his wid. Mary, born 1744, died 22 Mch., 1834, aged 90.

she managed with signal ability, and although involved in numer- 
ous law-suits, growing out of the general controversy there 
between Conn, and Penn. in regard to land titles, she was success- 
ful in all. She was a woman of great energy and force of char- 
acter, and of fine business capacity. She died 16 July, 1837,

Bethia Harris, 37, clau. of Jonathan, 
Born in Salem,' Conn., 14 Sept., 1752, m. 23 June, 1778, Col. 
John Jenkins, h. 27 Nov. (0. S.), or 8 Dec. (N. S.), 1751, son of 
John Jenkins of Wyoming, Penn. They were mar. in Jenkins 
Fort, Wyoming, by Rev. Jas. Benedict, ten days before the mem- 
orable Indian massacre at Wyoming, and twenty days after Col. 
Jenkins, then a Lieut, in the Colonial service of the Revolutionary 
war, had returned from a long, bitter, and perilous captivity of 
six months among the Indians, from whom he had effected his 
escape. 

His father, John Jenkins, Sen., born in Kingston, R. I., 6 Feb., 
1728, came to Colchester, Conn., in 1750, taught school there, 
and mar. Lydia, dau. of Stephen Gardner, a hotel keeper on the 
east side of Gardner's Lake, and had the following children, viz., 
John, who m. Bethia Harris, as before stated ; Stephen, b. 22 
Feb., 1753, d. 20 Sept., 1808; Benjamin, b. 18 July, 1754, d. 
Mch., 1787; Amy, b. 12 Jan., 1757, d. 24 Mch., 1834 ; Thomas, 
b. 19 Jan., 1761, d. 22 Apl., 1812; William, b. 30 Oct., 1764, d. 
1 Nov., 1846; and Wilkes, b. 18 July, 1767, d. 1 Apl., 1838. 
He removed from Colchester to Wyoming with the first company 
of Connecticut settlers there in 1769, and was one of the earliest 
participants and chief agent in the Connecticut movement for 
settling that valley. 

Among the many sad stories of the trials and perils of the 
pioneer settlers of our American colonies, the story of the early 
settlement of this lovely valley of Wyoming is the most mournful 
and memorable of all, and has a peculiar interest to our Harris 
family. These Connecticut settlers claimed title there under the 
express terms of the charter of King Charles U. to Conn., in 1662, 
which covered all this western territory ; but they were in the very 



44 



GENERATION IV 



infancy of their settlement, imperiled by prowling, armed, and 
organized bands of Pennamites, as they were called, who claimed 
that the charter snbsequently granted to Wm. Penn, in 1681, 
embraced the same territory also. 

These maranding bands, with their Indian allies, whose natural 
hostility to the settlers they could easily incite, by their joint 
inroads, kept the settlers and the very existence of the settlement in 
constant alarm and peril for several years, murdering, or taking 
into captivity, men, women, and children, without discrimination ; 
burning their rude dwellings, destroying their cattle and their 
crops, and more than once compelling the whole band of settlers 
to fiee for their lives; many of them pursuing their weary way on 
foot with their little ones, through the wilderness, back to their 
friends in Conn. In the war of the Revolution, which came even 
before their other perils had ceased, they were made the special 
victims of British, Tory, and Indian barbarities, and the ever- 
memorable " Massacre of Wyoming," which has been the pathetic 
burden of song and story over both continents, was the fitting and 
crowning event of their long suffering. 

In aU these events and perils John Jenkins, sen., was the rec- 
ognized champion and head ; the founder, leader, and defender of 
the settlement. He was appointed by Conn, its first General 
Agent for the settlement of Wyoming ; was a surveyor and con- 
veyancer by profession, and made its first surveys; drafted most 
or all of its early public documents ; was its first magistrate and 
justice of the peace, and its first Presiding or Chief Judge of 
Court ; and was five times sent as its representative to the Colo- 
niaf Assembly of Conn, from Wyoming, then called Westmoreland, 
and made part of Litchfield Co., Conn.; a circumstance which 
may seem a little strange to this generation. He died in Wyom- 
ing, in Nov., 1784, just after the close of the Revolutionary war, 
aged 66, leaving his country and his beloved valley in peace. 

John Jenkins, jun., served as Lieut, in the army of the revolu- 
tion until the close of the war, and was afterwards a Major and 
Col. of militia. He was by profession a lawyer, surveyor, and 
conveyancer ; carried on large farming operations, iron smelting, 
etc. ; was sheriflf of Luzerne Co. ; County Commissioner ; mem- 
ber of Assembly ; held many local offices ; for many years town 
clerk, supervisor, assessor, etc ; was Surveyor General of the 
Conn. Susquehanna Com., and for some time the General AgeLt.

He settled in Exeter township, on the site of the battle-ground 
where stood old Wintcrmoot fort, where he died 19 Mcli., 1827, 
aged 75. His widow, Bcthia, a woman of rare mental and moral 
endowments and culture, who had shared conspicuously in all the 
perils and hardships of the valley, and whose sufferings amid 
those wild scenes of blood and carnage were the nursei'y tales in 
my young days, of every Harris houshold in the old hive of the 
family in New London Co., died 12 Aug., 1842, aged 90. They

She died about 1820. They had several children, but I have the

himself or his children, and no headstone bearing any inscription 
whatever, to denote the age, or to identify the last resting-place 
of a single member of these ancient families, is known to exist.

" Time rolls his ceaseless course. The race of yore 

Who danced our infancy upon their knee, 
And told our marveling boyhood legends store, 

Of their strange ventures, happ'd by land or sea. 
How are they blotted from the things that be ! 

How few, all weak and withered of their force, 
Wait on the verge of dark eternity. 

Like stranded wrecks — the tide returning hoarse 
To sweep them from our sight. Time rolls his ceaseless course."

She was b. in Dutchess Co., N. Y., 2 Nov., 1786, and d. 2 Nov., 
1823, aged 37. He was a farmer; settled at first on the old 
Harris homestead in Athens, Bradford Co., Penn., where his first 
three children were born ; removed, about 1801, to Mt. Morris, 
N. Y., where his next two children were born, and thence, in 
about 1806, back again to Athens, and bought there a valuable 
tract of four or five hundred acres of land, including the ancient 
" Spanish Hill " mounds and other ruins of fabulous note, alluded 
to in the account of his father Jonathan, No. 32. This farm was 
bought under a Connecticut title, and he occupied it in quiet secur- 
ity, all unconscious of impending danger until 1810, when a suit of 
ejectment was brought under a Pennsylvania title, and decided 
against him. He was allowed, however, to remain, and his son- 
in-law, Benjamin P. Snyder, afterwards.bought the farm back, and 
it is still in the possession of the Snyder family. There were 
many cases similar to this, growing out of the long conflict of 
title between the early Connecticut and Pennsylvania patentees. 
Mrs. Perkins in her " Early Tlmes on the Susquehanna," 1870, 
p. 146, says, " Mr. Harris was a sensible and godly man. It is 
said that he was the first man that maintained family worship in 
the township of Athens." He d. in Athens, 2 April, 1850, aged 35.

Susannah Harris, 100, dau. of Jonathan, 
Born 12 July, 1781, in Goshen, Orange Co., N. Y., m. Gen. 
Wm. Augustus Mills, 30 Mch., 1803, son of Rev. Samuel Mills 
of Canandaigua, N. Y. ; settled in Mt. Morris,' Livingston Co., 
N. Y., where they both died. Mrs. Mills lived an active, earnest 
Christian life ; was a most devoted and faithful wife and mother ; 
a most amiable and valuable member of community, and one of 
the brighest ornaments and pillars of her church. 

Gen. Wm. A. Mills, at the early age of 16, was among tlie 
pioneer settlers of the Genesee Valley, and chose as his home the 
spot where now the lovely village of Mount Morris is located ; 
then a wilderness, inhabited only by Indians. By his sagacity 
and energy of character, he rose to prominence ; became one of 
the principal founders and fathers of the settlement; a kind- 
hearted man, of sterling integrity and excellent judgment, and 
had the confidence of all who knew him. He was Supervisor 
twenty years; Brig. Gen. and Maj. Gen. of militia; an extensive 
land-holder, and very successful farmer, and ever foremost in every 
public enterprise for improvement. He lived on the same spot,

still known as "Homestead Place," for more than fifty years. 
His wife d. there, 26 ApL, 1840, aged 59, and he d. in 1844, 
aged 67. He left no will, and after his death his nine children 
met and amicably divided his large estate among themselves, to 
the entire satisfaction of all, without recourse to any form of law, 
and without any expense, save their own mutual partition deeds. 
Such an instance of family harmony is worthy of record in a 
work like this.

settled there; a hatter by trade; died 13 Dec, 1867, aged 83, at 
the home of his uncle James Harris, N. Y. city. His widow is 
said to be still living in Newburgh. They had no children. 



Lebbeus Harris, 102, son of Capt. Nathaniel, 
Born in Salem, Conn., 19 Sept., 1764, m. Sarah Rogers of Col- 
chester, 20 Jan., 1792, who was b. 12 July, 1776. They removed 
soon after marriage to Middlebury, Vt., where they both died. 
He d. 10 Dec, 1818, aged 50, a farmer. His wid. Sarah, soon 
after m. 2d, Benajah Douglass of Brandon, Vt., and by this mar- 
riage became the foster-mother of the late Hon. Stephen A. 
Douglas of Illinois, the renowned U. S. Senator, and candidate 
for President of the United States in the memorable Lincoln 
campaign of 1859. 

Beriah Douglass, the father of Stephen A., died in 1813, when 
Stephen was only three months old, and the infant was taken 



GENEBATIONV. 59 

into the family of his gr. fa. Benajah, who also died soon after, 
leaving the little Stephen to the sole care, support, and manage- 
ment of this twice widowed mother, Sarah, who had already five 
children of her own. But this worthy mother cordially accepted 
the trust; and early discerning his peculiar traits of high future 
promise, she devoted herself to their development with a most 
noble and self-sacrificing fidelity; sending him to Brandon Acad- 
emy, and giving him other educational advantages, which she 
could ill afford, even to her own children. 

Senator Douglas never forgot her sacrificing and affectionate 
devotion to him ; and in an interview with the writer in Hartford, 
during the Presidential campaign referred to, he said with deep 
emotion, that the loving heart, the wise counsellings, and the 
cheering encouragement and influence of this foster-mother, had 
been the great inspiration of his life. 

Although not by birth one of our clan, yet having been in 
infancy adopted into one of our Harris wigwams, and reared 
beside one of our council fires, it seems fitting and honoring to us, 
to give him this niche in our family group. 

Wid. Sarah d. 20 Sept. 1850, aged 74, without issue by her 
second marriage. Lebbeus and Sarah had the following 

CHILDREN.

Bulkeley, born 10 Dec, 1767, dan. of Peter of Colchester, Conn. ; 
removed from Col. to Stowe, Vt., soon after marriage, where they 
ever after resided. He was a farmer. His wife died 26 April, 
1843, aged 75, and he died the next day, and they both were 
buried in one grave, " in death undivided." Like all his brothers 
and sisters, he had a strong development of the religious element, 
and great power in awakening thought and emotion in others. 
He was a Methodist local preacher and exhorter, as well as 
farmer, and applied himself faithfully to both callings during

most of his life. In Sept., 1838, about five years before his 
death, and when he was over 72 years old, his dwelling house, in 
which he had ever resided in Stowe, was accidentally burned to the 
ground, in the middle of the night, with all its contents; the 
startled inmates being barely able to escape with their lives, in 
their night robes. The loss was a severe calamity to the aged 
patriarch and his good wife Dimmis.

Sarah Harris, 106, dau. of Capt. Nathaniel, 
Born in Salem, Ct., Thursday, 10 Sept., 1772, m. Capt. William A. 
Morgan of Salem, 10 June, 1804, as his second wife. He m. 1st, 
Lydia Smith, dau. of Nathan of Groton, Conn., 4 May, 1776, who 
d. 4 Jan., 1804, by whom he had thirteen children, six sons and 
, seven daughters, and by Sarah he had four children, two sons and 
two daughters, of whom I am the eldest. All these seventeen 
children, except Griswold, who died in his 21st, and Sarah M., 
who died in her 15th year, lived to marry and become heads of 
families, but only three now survive, Rebecca, an elder sister, 
aged 80, myself, aged 73, and the youngest brother Griswold E., 
aged 67. Sarah, my honored mother, became by this marriage 
the foster-mother of nearly the entire brood, and no line of dis- 
tinction was ever recognized or felt among us ; b it as the first 
thirteen are not of the Harris lineage, their furth ;r history will 
not be herein given, but may be found in full in the "Morgan 
Family " genealogy, published by me in 1869. It is fitting, how- 
ever, to say, that though reared as the children of a farmer, all 



63 



GENERATION V. 



the sons, save the youngest, still on the homestead, sought other 
vocations, generally in the mercantile line, as did also most of 
the sons-in-law. All were fairly successful in business ; several 
of them eminently so ; and they have left a "numerous posterity, 
who, in moral worth, and social and public distinction, stand 
prominent above the average rank. It was a common remark of 
our honored father that "he had reared a family of seventeen 
children and never had occasion to blush for the conduct of either 
of them.'' And it is a pleasant reflection to me that, although 
they all settled near each other, nine of them with their wives 
and husbands, making a group of eighteen, in this city of Har<> 
ford, and were in constant fraternal and business intercourse with 
each other, I have never, in a long life, known of an unkind 
reflection, or an hour's alienation or estrangement of feeling 
between any of the entire family. 

Our honored father Wm. A., born in Groton, Conn., 24 Nov., 
1754, first settled there, where eleven of his children were born; 
removed Mch., 1796, to Salem, and thence, Mch., 1814, to Leb- 
anon, Conn., where he died, 22 Mch., 1842, aged 88. He was a 
sergeant in the army of tlie Revolution, and present at the battle 
of Bunker Hill, 17 June, 1775, then in his 21st year of age. 
He was a man of good natural abilities, and some reading ; 
social and companionable in intercourse; fond of anecdote and 
repartee; of kind and genial sympathies; loved his friends and 
made them feel it. His family discipline was thorough and 
decided, but often peculiarly droll and comical. His smai't rap 
falling upon one ear, and one of his apt witticisms falling upon 
the other at the same moment, often left his children in ludicrous 
doubt whether they were crying at the rap or laughing at the wit. 

Sarah, my sainted mother, was a woman of rare mental and 
moral endowments, a devoted wife and mother, and a devout, 
sincere, and earnest Christian, whose wise counsels and influence 
have ever been more than all things else, under Providence, the 
inspiration of my own life ; and it is the sweet and holy fragrance 
of her memory that now inspires me in this work in honor of her 
name, and of " her kindred according to the flesh." Sh j was 
left many years a widow, and died under my own roof in Hart- 
ford, 24 Nov., 1855, aged 83 years, 2 mos. and 14 days.

recollections of this couple are exceedingly pleasant, and if ever 
the Fates ordain and effect a perfect conjugal mating, in taste, 
thought, and feeling, this was one. Tliey were both the natural 
" children of song," and their voices, of peculiar sweetness, 
melody, and timbre, were of perfect accord, in part and counter- 
part. Song was the inspiration of their lives, -""d whenever 
either voice broke /orth in some impromptu strain, its counter- 
part, however distant, or busied with toil or care, would in an 
instant be heard blending in harmonv.

How the stately years march onward! — how the centuries increase! 

How the cycles roll and gather ! — how the lives of mortals cease ! 

Life is but a repetition ; for the man who lives to-day, 

Laves and hopes, like countless millions, who have lived and passed away."

James Harris, 264, son of Alpheus, 

Born in Athens, Pa., Oct., 1817, m. . He presents, 

in a marked degree, an indifference to kinship, which character- 
izes many of his peculiar brancli ; refusing to make any reply 
whatever to my repeated enquiries concerning himself or his fam- 
ily. A few members of this branch afford lionorable exceptions 
to this characteristic, and have given aid in this chilling field. 
But all I can learn about him is, that he is a painter by trade, 
and a dealer in paint in N. Y. city; resides at '212 8th ave. ; had 
two children, son and daughter.

tile business, which he has made successful ; at one time dealing 
largely in lumber; in 1865, organized and became president of 
the "First National Bank" at Athens, in which office he still 
continues. Like his brother Jameg above, he evidently knows 
but little of his ancestry or present relatives, and manifests as 
little interest concerning them. -

for the last twenty years, in broken health and extreme suffering 
from spasmodic asthma, which has reduced his frame from its 
normal weight of 165 pounds to a skeleton of 96 pounds, he has 
been compelled to abstain almost entirely from all active pursuits, 
and to confine himself chiefly within the walls of his own habita- 
tion. Under this restraint, in order to prevent his mental 
machinery from rusting within its old and feeble shell, he resorts 
to his pen, in this and kindred labors, and to his books, especially 
to those most expressive of modern thought in art, science, and 
general discovery, in this wonderfully ^ progressive age; and in 
this way — a kind Providence having fairly favored him "in his 
basket and in his store " — he succeeds in keeping himself, in a 
reasonable degree, contented, cheerful, and happy.

morning of April 28, 1863, at Hartford, aged 19 years, 6 mos., 
and 15 days. Four months prior she had a fearful fall, which 
for a few moments stunned her into unconsciousness, but from 
whicli she soon recovered, and no further effects from it were 
afterwards manifested or apprehended, until tlie fatal morning 
when, in a second of time, she passed from life to life eternal, in 
the presence of her astonished, bewildered, and heart-riven 
parents, without a word or sign. One of the loveliest of earth's 
daughters, her whole life and character in the world below 
seemed better adapted to the world above, and surely a father's 
heart and hand may be indulged in recording here this brief 
memorial, and saying of her early exit, — 

Suddenly, but safely.

mason and builder in Boston, and, from an active mental temper- 
ament, soon acquired much influence among his fellow craftsmen 
in forming associations and in giving lectures and addresses for 
their improvement. This soon led him into the pulpit, which he 
entered without prior theological training, as an itinerant preacher. 
But holding no very definite creed, and with a mind naturally 
spurning sectarian restraint, he left this calling, after a year or 
two, to engage as editor and business manager of a weekly 
religious journal in Providence, R. I. He was afterwards editor 
of the Rhode Island Freeman, and later, of the Providence Daily 
Tribune, and has ever been an occasional contributor, both in 
prose and verse, to the public press. He has also been engaged, 
to some extent, in mercantile pursuits. They reside in Provi-

ness, and after seven years' service, at the age of 22, became his 
partner under the firm of Amasa Walker & Co. He has contin- 
ued this business with various partnei-s, and with eminent success 
as a merchant and financier ; was a director of the Atlantic

Hon. Jonathan N. Harris, 394, son of Jonathan, 
Born in Salem, Conn., 18 Nov., 1815, m. 1st, Jane M. Brown, dau. 
of Benjamin Brown of N. London, 8 May, 1843, who .was the 
mother of all his eight children, six of whom, and herself, are 
now dead. He next m. 19 July, 1869, Martha Ann Strong, dau. 
of Hon. Lewis Strong of Northampton, Mass. She was grand- 
daughter of Gov. Caleb Strong of Massachusetts, and her mother, 
Maria Chester, was dau. of Hon. Stephen Chester, former High 
Sheriff of Hartford County, Conn. They reside in New London. 
The personal history of Jonathan Newton Harris affords a fine 
and striking example of the honorable and successful career of an 
American boy, without any adventitious aid of birth, fortune, oi- 
circumstance save what falls to lot of every son of a humble New 
England farmer in moderate circumstances. Reared to toil upon 
a small and hard farm in Salem, he was placed, when nearly 17 
years old, as clerk in a small country variety store in Hamburg, 
Conn., where he remained about two years. Li 1836, he engaged 
as clerk with Smith & Cady of N. London, in the grocery and 
liardware business, until 1838, when he commenced business for 
himself, with a capital of -$100 only, as a small grocer. This 
business he made successful, and in 1844, received into partner- 
ship George W. Brown, the brother of his wife, under the firm of 
Harris & Brown, which continued until 1848, when he again con- 
tinued the business alone until 1853, greatly extending it and 
adding a large line of farm tools and agricultural implements, 



108 



GENERATION VI. 



and also hardware, iron, steel, etc., of his own importation, being 
the first direct importer of these articles in New London. In 
1853, his firm was Harris, Ames & Co., and in 1857, Harris, Wil- 
liams & Co.. in the same business, and with constant and ever- 
increasing success, until 1865, when he retired from merchan- 
dising with a handsome fortune. 

Meantime, in June, 18-i8, he, in company with Perry Davis of 
Providence, R. I., established the great medical house of J. N. 
Harris & Co., at Cincinnati, 0., which still continues and has 
been eminently successful; and from 1862 to 1873, he was partner 
and capitalist of the firm of Hill & Harris, owners and operators 
of the celebrated '- Hill & Harris " coal mine in Pennsylvania, 
which was also another eminent success. 

He has been for twenty-four years, and still is, an active direc- 
tor in the Bank of Commerce (now the National Bank of Com- 
merce) of N. London, and in 1876, was elected president of the 
N. London " City National Bank," which office he now holds; 
was representative in General Assembly of the State in 1855 ; 
State senator in 1861, and mayor of the city of N. London for 
six years, from 1856 to 1862. In 1875 he was made chairman of 
the State Executive Committee of the Young Men's Christian 
Association of the State of Connecticut, and now, in the full and 
ripe vigor of his manhood, is devoting himself to the high objects 
of that association, with a liberality, energy, and zeal even more 
fervent and effective than he has ever manifested in his own pri- 
vate enterprises. And yet he might well claim excuse, after a 
life of such persistent and unceasing care, anxiety, and honest 
labor, were he to decline these extra and heavy burdens and 
responsibilities, and retire to the quiet rest and enjoyment of his 
own princely fortune and his own delightful home. 

The simple story of this career commends itself as an encoui-- 
aging example to the youth of our family, and indeed of our land, 
but I should fail greatly in the telling, were I not to add, most 
emphatically, for their special notice, that the same faithful and 
diligent attention to business; the same high sense of honor, and 
the same unspotted integrity of character, which first gave to this 
young grocer, with a capital of only an hundred dollars, an 
unlimited credit wherever known, have ever been the marked and 
distinguishing characteristics of his whole life. . 

His wife Martha Ann is also an efficient and zealous co-laborer

in the same general field of Christian philanthropy; holding now 
the office of president of the Eastern Connecticut Branch of the 
Woman's American Board of Foreign Missions. They reside in 
N. London.

lished "The" Battle of Groton Heights;" the most ample, and 
altogether the most impartial, authentic, and best written his- 
tory of the noted storming of Fort Griswold and the burning of 
N. London by the British, under the traitor Arnold, Sept. 6, 1781, 
that has ever been given.

Hon. Steuben Jenkins, 455, son of James, 
Born in Exeter, Pa., 28 Sept., 1819, m. 24 Feb., 1846, Catharine 
Breese, b. 27 July, 1822. They reside in Wyoming, Luzerne Co., 
Pa. Mr. Jenkins was born on the memorable battle-ground of 
Wyoming, in the old homestead of his grandfatlier, Col. John 
Jenkins, a hero of the Pennamite and Revolutionary wars, and 
most of his life has been spent in the vicinity hallowed and made 
historically classic by the deeds of his ancestors. [Vide pp. 43-5.] 
Of marked intelligence and cultivation in almost every depart- 
ment of knowledge, his own facile and ever-busy pen has contrib- 
uted largely to the puldic journals of the day, upon historical, 
scientific, literary, social, and many other subjects; and in his 
business career he has evinced the same versatile capacity, indus- 
try, and energy of character. He commenced as common school 
teacher in Pittston, but soon engaged in mercantile business at 
Wyoming, devoting his spare hours, more or less, to other subjects, 
especially to the study of law; in 1847, August term, was admit- 
ted to the Bar as an attorney, and entered upon the practice of 
law. In 1853, his health failing under too severe labor, he 
accepted a position in Washington, D. C, in charge of the Foreign 
Mail Bureau, where his labors were lighter. In 1855, he returned 
to Wyoming, and with his brother James, establishedjhe banking 
house of Jenkins & Brother, but the great financial panic of 1857 
soon impending, he prudently withdrew from its hazards, closed 
up his banking business in 1858, and resumed the practice of law 
at Wilkes Barre. In 1856, and again in 1857, he was elected to 
the State Legislature, and bore an active and influential part in 
all the prominent measures of those sessions. In 1863. was 
chosen clerk and counsel of the Commissioners of Luzerne Co., 
and continued in that office till 1870, when, his health again fail-

ing, he resigned, and has since been engaged in farming, diversi- 
fying it, however, with a wide variety of other historical, scientific, 
and business pursuits, enough in themselves to overburden an 
ordinary man, but which his active mind and restless industry 
seems to seek as a recreation. He reads Latin, Greek, German, 
French, and Spanish ; has the largest and best collection of 
Indian relics in the United States, and probably in the world, and 
also a large cabinet of fossils, minerals, shells, etc. ; has devoted 
many years in collecting an immense mass of material for a his- 
toi-y of Wyoming, which he is now preparing for the press ; and in 
tracing the genealogies of all the early settlers of Wyoming, of 
any note ; has been for seventeen years either secretary or presi- 
dent of Luzerne County Agricultural Society ; seventeen years 
secretary of Wyoming Bible Society; eleven years director of 
Forty Fort Cemetery Association, and for the same period secre- 
tary of Wyoming Monument Association; prison commissioner 
and clerk of Board since 1870, and director of First National 
Bank, Pittston, each of which offices he still holds. He was for 
fifteen years trustee of Luzerne Presbyterian Institute ; ten years 
trustee of Presbyterian church of Wyoming; seven years director 
and secretary of School Board in Kingston, and has presided over 
various school institutes, county conventions, and other public 
assemblages, with native grace and dignity. He is also honorary 
member of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania; of the His- 
torical Society of Bradford County ; of American Anthropological 
Society ; and president of the Jenkins Institute of History and 
Science, of which he was the founder. And in addition to his 
multifarious accomplishments he is a musician of high order, 
performing skillfully on various instruments, and well versed in 
mechanics and the fine arts. His devotion to the public welfare 
and his affable and genial spirit has ever made him personally 
popular, and his strict integrity of character and high moral quali- 
ties are held in the highest regard as widely as he is known.* 

His sympathies in this effort to gather up for preservation the 
history of our common Harris lineage were so quickly and keenly 
enlisted, that he made the journey from Wyoming to Hartford 
for the sole purpose of uniting with me in a joint and final hunt 
over N. London County, among the early archives, records, grave- 

* I have condensed the facts above stated from several public notices of Mi. Jenkins, 
and chiefly from Clark's " Wtomihq Valley," edition of 1875, p. 200.

Edward H. Olnistead, 758, son of Nathaniel H., 

Born in Savannah, Ga., 17 Jan., 1819, m. Andrews, who 

died 4 Sept., 1870. He is supposed by the family to be living in 
Savannah, and to have had five children — four sous living, and a 
daughter, who died ; but all my efforts to hear fi-om him have failed. 
The civil war, so generally disastrous to the South, was especially so 
to him and his business, and nothing very definite seems to have 
been known or heard of him since. Having personally, from 
early memories, a warm kindred regard for this Olmstead family, 
I regret my utter failure to obtain further information.

ADDITIONS 



The following additions were not received nntil too late for 
insertion and arrangement in their proper place and order; but 
by the careful references given to former numbers, very little 
difficulty will be found in tracing their connection and lineage. 
I was never able, by several years of diligent research, to ascer- 
tain what became of Asa 3d, No. 54, and wife Faith McCall, or 
any of that family, after they left Lebanon, Conn., in 1771 
(p. 47), and had abandoned all hope of tracing them, supposing 
them to have migrated with others of our early clan to the British " 
Provinces. But just as this work was ready for the press I dis- 
covered^ accidentally, that a certain Nathaniel Harris, No. 15.5, 
who had married Nancy Derthick, dau. of Mary Harris, No. 39, 
of our family, but was never supposed to be of our stock, was 
nevertheless, in fact, one of the sons of Asa and Faith, who went 
from Lebanon to Pittsfield, Mass., and there had other children. 
Upon tliis discovery, I immediately pressed to its utmost, evary 
means in my power to gather in this long-lost and important branch ; 
and by the quick responses and earnest cooperation of its wide- 
awake members, have had most eminent success. Had a few 
weeks more time been at command, I could have perfected every 
detail, most fully ; and as it is, 1 am more than gratified, and 
welcome them all most cordially into our camp, with the thanks 
of the whole sept and clan for their fraternal spirit and sympathy.

APPENDIX 



EARLY HARRIS SETTLERS IN NEW ENGLAND. 

The following list of early settlers in New England, by the 
name of HARRIS, comprises nearly, and perhaps all, who are 
known to have left families or descendants behind them. Tliere 
were many others of the name in New England, who left no 
descendants. They are here given as hints, or suggestive clues 
to others of the name to trace out, it may be, their own pedigree. 
I have never found any evidence that either of them was in any 
way related to our ancestor, James Harris of Boston, and the 
probabilities are that he had no relatives of the name among the 
early emigrants. 

1. Walter of Weymouth, Mass., came over in the ship Wil- 
liam and Francis, 1632. Probably his mother, " widow of Walter 
Harris," and his brother Gabriel came with him, but returned to 
England " for property left behind," and was lost on his passage 
back. He was at Weymouth as early as 1635, and between that 
date and 1650 had acquired there a large landed estate. The 
"Harris Range" of lands, so-called, and still known by the name, 
belonged to him. He removed to New London, Conn., in 1652, 
and had a house, lot, and eight acres of upland assigned him 
there. He died in New London 6 Nov., 1654, and his wife Mary 
died 29 Jan., 1656. The inventory of the estate of "Walter 
Harris and Mary his wife, both deceased," was taken at N. Lon- 
don, 4 ApL, 1656. This pair were the progenitors of one of the 
most numerous class of the Harris name in this country; its 
ancient hive being in N. London. I have a large list in manu- 
script of these descendants, gathered under the circumstances 
alluded to in the introduction, p. 10. They left two sons, Gabriel 
and Thomas; and three daughters, Sarah, m. a Lane; Mary, m. 
a Lawrence ; and Elizabeth, m. a Week.

3. Thomas of N. London, son of Walter (1), went to England 
after the death of his father, and, according to a doubtful tradi- 
tion, never returned. There was a Thomas Harris on the high- 
way com. of N. London, 16 Aug., 1665, who, if not this one, was 
of unknown antecedents. 

4. Thomas of N. London, son of Gabriel (2), m. Mary Weth-

9. William of Salem, Mass., 1635 ; removed, 1636, with Roger 
Williams to settle Providence, R. I. ; had a bitter quarrel with 
Williams about certain lands, lasting for years, in which all the 
plantation took part with either Williams or Harris; took oath 
of allegiance to Charles H. May, 1666; eight years later, went to 
England to get aid from the king in his land quarrel [See Conn. 
Col. Record, Vol. II., p. 586] ; returned to Providence at the 
outbreak of King Philip's war. In 1678, made his will, in which 
he stated his age at 68 years, and sailed again for England, for 
further aid in his land quarrel, and also on some agency for the 
Conn. Colony; embarked at Boston in the "Unity," Capt. Condy; 
was taken 24 Jan., 1679, by an Algerine pirate, and sold in Bar- 
bary. After over a year in slavery, was ransomed at a high 
price, Connecticut paying £400 towards it as their agent. He 
returned through France and Spain ; reached London in 1680, 
and died three days after, at the house of his friend John Stokes. 
His will, dated 1678, was proved in Providence 20 Feb., 1682.
