I don't have much for you so make of this what you can:

Spouse:  Mary A. (Craig ) Harris  b.1814  d.1898

Children:

Asa Harris (1837 - ?)

Mary E. Gordon (b.Harris) (1845 - 1926)

Susan Harris (Morton) (1849 - ?)

Lydia Rebecca Keefer (b.Harris) (1850 - 1930)

Martha Harris (1853 - ?)

There is a private family tree on  MyHeritage Family Trees (which I could not access) called Craig Family Tree. Contact the Site Manager. The Family Tree number is:  1244637-1

You should be able to find this site, also, by searching on William Harris b.1789 in the MyHeritage Family Tree website.

Good luck,

Kevin
