Who is Joshua C Harris b. 1830 Texas?

+5 votes
92 views
My great grandfather was Joshua C Harris, born in 1830 Texas. He was married to Martha (Ann, I, or J) Harper. The only reference I can find of him, before marriage, was the 1850 census. He is listed last in the family of Isac Harris and Martha Hassell. Is he the son or Nephew of Isac (born 1806 Louisanna) and Martha? I find SEVERAL Isaac Walton Harris's who's who? There is a lot of info on Isaac Walton Harris born 1814 approx. in Tennessee. It looks like a lot of the information is duplicated between individuals.
