Harris Betty/Bettis 1791 King George, VA
Posted by: Jeannine Harber Date: June 08, 2000 at 16:38:08
  of 169

Looking for information on the parents of Harris Betty or Bettis who was born in King George Co., VA, abt 1791. The spelling Betty and Bettis were both used, but after 1810 the family was using the Bettis spelling.

Harris Bettis m. Nancy Ann Griffin of King George Co. 11 Jan 1810. The Griffin and the Bettis family are both on the 1787 tax list. The spelling is Bettis in this case and they are John, Thomas and Daniel Bettis. Several Daniel's in our family.

In 1810 there are four Betty's in the census, John Roger Sukey, and Harris.

By 1821 the family had moved to Mason Co., KY and Harris Betty/Bettis died in 1849. His family migrated to Wayne Co., IA in the early 1850's.

Any help appreciated.
