Thanks for the info on Harris Betty or Bettis. Harris oldest daughter was Susan, my ggg grandmother, and the son born after Susan was Daniel Bettis. Good chance for a connection there. Harris moved to Mason Co., KY, Roger Bettis is in the 1830 Mason Co. KY census and Marshall Bettis, age 60 in the 1850 Bracken Co., KY census,along with Archibald who may be his son. Looks like Marshall could be Harris brother.

Four of Harris children, Susan, Daniel, Enoch and Fanny (Frances) settled in Wayne Co., IA in the 1850's. Son Abner lived in Putnam Co., IN.

Harris Bettis wife was Nancy Ann Griffin from King George Co. There are Griffin's on the 1787 tax list, but haven't made a connection.

Would appreciate any information on Susannah Rogers.
