Joseph Harris was born about 1718 in Isle of Wight County, Virginia. He died in Warren County, North Carolina in 1797. Sometime prior to 1750, Joseph and his brothers moved across the Roanoke River and built homes along Little Fishing Creek in what is now Warren County, North Carolina. In 1754, he enlisted in a Granville County, NC militia unit commanded by his first cousin, Captain Daniel Harris. Joseph married Jane (Jean) Edgerton, daughter of John and Elizabeth Nicholson Edgerton. They were the parents of Howard, Robert, Martha, Elizabeth, Lucretia, Jane, Jellica, and Tabitha.
