I'm still trying to find what the connection between Retta Harris and James Westwood Killebrew of Weakley County, Tennessee is.
Retta was the daughter of John William Harris and Mary Louise Almond. John was the second son of Zephaniah H. Harris and Martha Jane (maiden name unknown). Retta was born 1873 in Henry County TN but moved with her mother to Weakley County after 1880. She lived the last several weeks of her life in the home of J. W. Killebrew in Dresden, dying in 1895.
Other of her Harris aunts/uncles were Thomas Harris who married Caroline Overton, Martha Jane Harris who married Judge John Somers, Elizabeth Harris who married Benjamin Travis, Margaret Harris who married T. E. Jenkins, Emerson Harris, and Rufus Zephaniah Harris. These were all Weakley County relatives.
I wonder if the Harrises were related somehow, maybe through Retta's grandmother Harris and either the Killebrew, Ridgeway or Henderson families.
Hopefully, I have not made this note too confusing. I have more information on the Harris family if someone sees something familiar.
Thank you for any help.
