Teste Will Irvine CMC Typed as spelled in will. The following is some research on Christopher Harris done by my cousin Evelyn W. Wallace: Preparer: Evelyn W. Wallace, southern California Edited 2/2000 CHRISTOPHER HARRIS. (ca. 1725 VA-1794 KY). WIR00050 An entry in DAR LINEAGE BOOK, V. 80, p. 353 reads: `Christopher Harris (1725-94) served in the Kentucky Militia, 1780. He was born in Albemarle County, VA; died in Madison County, KY. ... Christopher Harris and Agness McCord (b. 1740), his wife, m. 1762.` (Mrs. Mary Allen Mathews, No. 79960). As with many older DAR applications, this, too, has flaws. We deduce from the following deeds that Christopher`s date of birth as given is approximately correct. He was of age by 1753. However, his more likely birthplace was Hanover Co., VA, the parent county of Louisa Co., which was formed 1742 from Hanover Co. Later. `the western portion of Louisa County was annexed to Albemarle County 1 May 1761,` according to Rosalie Edith Davis, who has transcribed or abstracted many deeds and vestry records of both Louisa and Albemarle Cos. In Vol. 7 of the Lineage Book of the Daughters of the American Colonists, p, 277, Christopher Harris (1725-94) is said to have married Mary Dabney in 1745. No documentation is presented. (Lineage of Mrs. Virginia Field Walton Brooks, born in Jonesboro, Arkansas.) (Lineage Books were at Santa Monica PL, 369.12 D263). However, Christopher`s 1794 will makes reference to Cornelius Dabney, who MAY have been his brother-in-law rather than his father-in-law. Another source states the marriage probably took place at Brown`s Cove. This place may be in reference to the family of Benjamin Brown, who were neighbors of the Harrises. Christopher Harris probably was named for a relative of another generation. This name is found in a list of processioners ca. 1718, Hanover Co., VA, along with other surnames associated with the family of Robert Harris `the immigrant,` i.e., Overton, Glenn, Garland, Grubbs. From The Vestry Book of St. Paul`s Parish, Hanover Co., VA 1706-1786, as transcribed and edited by C. G. Chamberlayne [Richmond: 1940], p. 266: `p. ` `The lands of Edw Garland, Jas. Overton, Xpher Harris, Jno Glenn, Saml Reynolds, Henry Farmer, Robt Jennings & Abra: Venable being one precinct of which Edwd Garland and Jas Overton were Overseers who made this return, the within Order executed in presence of James Glenn, Saml Reynolds, Abra: Venable, Henry Farmer, Mr. Robt Jennings did not appear, for his Land and Saml Reynolds is all in one pattent and no Division.` Another in St. Paul`s Parish with whom the Harris family was associated was David Crawford. One of the daughters of Robert Harris and Mourning [Glenn], Frances or Nancy Harris was to marry Joel Crawford (qv), to whom David Crawford probably was related. (More reseach is needed on the Crawford family.) In 1746/47 Christopher Harris patented land. Patent Bk 28: Christopher Harris, 350 acs.

Mosias Jones, David Mills (Rosalie Edith Davis, LOUISA COUNTY, VIRGINIA DEED BOOKS A AND B, 1742-1759 [Bellevue, WA 1976] p. 84) (To be continued) E.W.Wallace(email@example.com) This is a continuation of the biographical sketch of Christopher Harris (the elder) of Madison Co., KY. A Virginia land patent of Tully Choice, Pat. Bk 31-711 indicates that his land is on the Branches of Rockey Creek and the Albemarle Co. Line [N50W] and adjoins Christopher Harris, William Keatton, Patrick Wood & William Owens. Christopher Harris`s Marriages Christopher`s first wife, according to Hazel Spraker in THE BOONE FAMILY, (`Harris Family` by Bess Hawthorne, a Harris descendant) was Mary Dabney. In Christopher`s will (1794, Madison Co., KY), cited below, he mentions bequest of Cornelius Dabney, probably Mary`s father or possibly brother. The bequest was to Harris`s oldest children, implying that these were his children by Mary Dabney. A Cornelius Dabney was in King William Co. ca. 1723, but also in Hanover Co. 1733-34 (Hanover Co. Court Records), and in Louisa Co., VA as late as 1782. The latter Cornelius Dabney would have been contemporaneous with Christopher Harris but possibly predeceasing him. It is known there were several men by this name of succeeding generations. The Dabneys were neighbors in Albemarle Co. in 1768 as evidenced by the following deed, DB-5, pp. 37-38: William Dabney & his wf. Jane of Albemarle Co. to William Shelton for 200 pds. current money of VA, a tract of land on Mechams River, adj Wm. Wallace. (s) Wm. Dabney Wit: Thomas Grubbs, Elizabeth Jones, Christopher Harris, Robert Harris, Tyre Harris. 2 Jun 1768; delivery of deed acknd by witnesses on same date. Rec. Nov Ct 1768 (Tyre or Tyree Harris, brother of Christopher, found in some Louisa Co. records, later removed to Orange Co. NC from which Caswell Co. was formed in 1777. William Shelton married into the Harris family. He had a son named Tyree and so did Christopher Harris.) Louisa County VA Records Christopher Harris was a witness in Louisa Co. 24 Nov 1750 to Martin`s improvements, apparently an appraisal by three men (by order of Louisa Court Oct 1750). An indication of the approximate location of the land of Christopher Harris in Louisa Co. is found in this entry in Fredericksville Parish Vestry Book: P. 35: [ca 28 Nov 1750] `Ordered that Mosias Jones and Christopher Harris do procession all the lands on the up[p]er side of Buck mountain Creek and a Cross Moormans river to the Coty. Line and up the Same to the Ragged Mountains and under them to Brown`s road and down the Same to Buck Mountain Creek.` (Rosalie Edith Davis, FREDERICKSVILLE PARISH VESTRY BOOK, 1742-1787, VOL. I [Manchester, MO: privately printed, 1978], p. 38 `Pursuant to an Order of Court Dated ye 24th Day of June 1752,` an almost identical order was issued to Moisas Jones Gent. and Christopher Harris. (p. 51) Also living in Fredericksville Parish at the same time were Christopher`s father, Robert Harris `Gent.` and brother Tyree Harris. Tyree succeeded his father Robert as vestryman, but he later migrated to North Carolina. Jeremiah Glen, no doubt a relative of Christopher and Tyree`s mother, Mourning Glen, was a resident in the parish also. (Mourning`s father is believed to have been James Glen, but the exact identity of Mourning`s parents is in dispute among contemporary genealogists.) Much later, Christopher was again ordered to procession: P. 81 [ca 1767] `Ordered that Xtopher Harris & Daniel Maupine Junr. do procession all the lands above (a hole in the page) ... res Meeting House between Moreman`s river and Woods Road up to the top of the Great Mountain.` (Davis, op. cit., p. 85) A William Dabney appears in the orders. He was to procession between Wood`s and Rhodes Road & the River and Ivy Creek. Albemarle Co. Records Albemarle Co., VA was formed 1744 from Louisa and Goochland Cos. In Albemarle Co., there is this deed: DB A?-p158: 13 May 1762 Christopher Harris to Saml. Karr, Augusta [Co.] for 65 pds., 331 acres both sides S fork Rockey Creek adj. Henry Bunch, Mosias [transcribed as Morias but other records show Mosias] Jones. (Rev. Bailey Fulton Davis, THE DEEDS OF AMHERST COUNTY, VIRGINIA 1761-1807 AND ALBEMARLE COUNTY, VIRGINIA 1748-1763, p. 54) This parcel of 331 acres seems to be the same which Keaton had sold to Christopher Harris nine years earlier and which Robert Harris, Christopher`s father, had earlier sold to Keaton with proviso that it was to be later transferred to Christopher. (This type of conveyance usually occurred between an older man to a younger relative or a trusted friend when the son of the grantor was underage. The relationship of Keaton to the Harris family is unknown. Perhaps he was a brother-in-law of Robert Harris.) From Albemarle Co., VA court papers 1744-1783: 1770 [p. 32] Promissory note: Philip Thurman of Albemarle Co. to Christopher Harris, dated 10 Mar 1770, witnessed by Robert Harris and Benjamin Thurman. (On back `To Mr. Robert Harvey: Sir, please pay this bond. Signed Philip Thurman.) (Comment: This may be the younger Robert Harris, Christopher`s brother or perhaps Christopher`s son of the same name.) (Benjamin B. Weisiger III, ALBEMARLE CO., VA COURT PAPERS 1744-1783, SLC film 1,697,895 Item 9) To be continuedPart 3 (Two other parts of the biography of Christopher Harris have already been posted. This is a continuation.) The following deeds of Louisa Co. make reference to Albemarle Co. line: Deed Bk. B-136-137 makes mention of Christopher Harris`s land. The deed is dated 14 Jul 1756 is from Tully Choice of Halifax Co., grantor, to James Ennis of Louisa Co....on branches of Rockey Creek...Christopher Harris and William Keaton`s corner...Patrick Woods line...Williams Owens line, corner in Albemarle Co. line...Christopher Harris` corner in the County line.

Christopher Harrises and William Keaton`s corner...Patrick Wood`s line...William Owens line to Owen`s corner oak in Albemarle Co. line...Christopher Harris` corner in Co. line. (Rosalie Edith Davis, LOUISA COUNTY, VA DEED BOOKS A AND B, 1742-1759 [Bellevue, WA, 1976]) More Albemarle Co., VA Records DB Bk 3-171 3 Apr 1762, Christopher Harris was a witness to a deed Ro. Harris, planter, to son Ro., Jr., love - on Blue Ridge, Doyle River, pat. of 521 acres 6 Dec 1753. Other witnesses were Jas. Harris and Wm. Brown. On 3 Apr 1762, DB 3-175 Benj. Brown deeded property to his daughter, Lucretia Harris. The witnesses were Jas. & Christopher Harris, Wm. Brown, and Benj. Thurman. (Of interest is the fact that Benj. Brown a few months earlier had deeded land on Doyle River [in Albemarle Co.] to Benjamin Brown [Jr.] of Hanover. But he is not specified as Benj. Brown, Jr.. Hanover Co. was the former home of the Harrises. Hazel A. Spraker in THE BOONE FAMILY states that Brown Sr.`s wife was Sarah Dabney. Lucretia Brown, a daughter of Benjamin Brown, (grantor in above deed), married Robert Harris, Jr. Refer to the biography of Robert Harris, Jr., who is inferred from DB 3-264 to have been the husband of the above Lucretia [Brown] Harris. Christopher again witnessed that deed.) (Rev. Bailey Fulton Davis, THE DEEDS OF AMHERST COUNTY, VIRGINIA, 1761-1807 AND ALBEMARLE COUNTY, VIRGINIA 1748-1763, Easley, SC, 1979) Christopher Harris appears on the personal property tax list of Albemarle Co., VA, 1782. He is shown with 9 slaves, 27 cattle, 4 horses, paying a tax of 5 pounds, 14 shillings, and 9 pence. Two other Harrises are shown as proprietors in District 3: James and Thomas. Harris`s first wife, Mary Dabney, must have died before 1769 as on that date, Agnes (McCord) appears as Harris`s wife in Albemarle Co. deeds. Two other McCords are shown in District 3: Jane, probably a widow, and William. (Thomas Jefferson, Esq., is shown in District 2 on the 1782 tax list of Albemarle Co.. He counted 2 males over 21; 129 slaves; 106 net cattle; 23 horses; 6 `wheels for riding carriages,` paying a tax of 70 pounds, 12 shillings, and 6 pence.) In Augusta Co. VA, Deed Bk 22-p. 395 indicates that Christopher Harris and Agness (--) executed a deed, 17 Nov 1778. Details were not given by Lyman Chalkley, CHRONICLES OF THE SCOTTISH-IRISH SETTLEMENT, V. 3. Chalkley abstracted many documents of what was then Augusta Co., VA. Land office records in Virginia Archives show the following Virginia land patents or grants for Christopher Harris in Albemarle Co., VA: 1. 15 Aug 1764 - 164 A on Gingsang br. in Millstone Bottom, Patents No. 36, 1764-67, p. 624 2. 17 Aug 1770 - 234 A on the side of one of the Mountains in the Blue Ridge called Bucks Elbow. Patent No. 39, 1770-71, p. 10 Christopher`s father Robert Harris also patented land in Albemarle Co. in 1751. From Albemarle Co.

Christor. Harriss At Albemarle June Court 1772 This indenture and Receipt were acknowledged by Christopher Harris and Agnes his Wife parties thereto and ordered to be recorded. In 1785, in Albemarle Co., Christopher Harris was surety at marriage of John Harris to Margaret Maupin, daughter of John Maupin. The 1787 Albemarle County Personal Property Tax, List A, shows Christopher Harris as `self` charged with tax; 2-3-5-4-8. The first column indicates number of white males above 16 and under 21. Cols. 2 and 3 indicate slaves and their age brackets; Col. 4 is number of horses, etc.; Col. 5 indicates number of cattle. The same tax list shows the following McCords: Wm., Jr., Samuel and Wm. Sr. Other related families are shown: Maupin, Rodes. (Netti Schreiner-Yantis and Florine Love, THE 1787 CENSUS OF VIRGINIA, V. 2, p. 140.) Revolutionary War Service Hamilton J. Eckenrode in VIRGINIA SOLDIERS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION, V. I (VA State Library & Archives, 1989) lists `Harris, Christopher (Kentucky m.) Fx. Coms. 1780.` No verification of this could be located at the Virginia State Library Oct 1995. Christopher Harris qualifies for `patriotic service` by virtue of the fact that he furnished an item or items of value during the Revolution. His name appears in `Public Service Claims, Albemarle County Court Booklet,` unnumbered page. The number beside his name is 154: `for 572 do taken by the Wh for State use.` The preceding person`s payment was for items taken by militia for State use, and the `WH` in Harris`s claim may be an abbreviation for militia. He was paid 4 pds., 9 shillings, and 6 pence. Virginia State Library enclosed the following paper pertaining to Christopher Harris, not all of which is legible: No. 29 I do hereby certifie that I have Received of Christopher Harris for public uses agreable to an Act of Assembly for procuring a supply provisions and other necessary [torn] in the uss of the army four Hundred & thirty seven [torn] at five pounds ... amounting to two thousand and six hundred & eighty five pounds as witness my hand this 18 October 1781. L 2685 - 537 89.6 John Key C. P. ? 537 - a 3 d 46.14.3 for Albemarle County Removal to Kentucky By 1780, Christopher Harris was beginning to make his move to Kentucky. A land grant for Christopher Harris has been recorded as follows: Original survey no: 8551 Name: Christopher Harris Acreage: 1,200 County: Fayette Watercourse: Hinkston Fk., Licking Survey Date: 1-20-1786 Original Bk & Page: 10-412 Grantee: Same & heirs Grant Date: 1-25-1792 Original Bk & Page: 14-385-386 (Joan E. Brookes-Smith, MASTER INDEX VIRGINIA SURVEYS AND GRANTS 1774-1791 [Frankfort, KY: Kentucky Historical Society, 1976], p. 84) (Note: In 1786, one Francis Eppes Harris was granted land on the same watercourse, same county. Whether there is a relationship is unknown. None has been discovered.) Jefferson Land Entries show on 17 May 1780, Christopher Harris entered 1200 A on Licking [River], North Fork, Bk. A-66 It is unclear whether this is Christopher Harris the father or his son, Christopher Harris. If correct, this date precedes the 1786 survey date mentioned above. Recent perusal of Madison Co. deeds reveals there was a deed involving this acreage, of which his heirs seemed unaware. At the time of the deed of some of the heirs, the land was then in Bourbon Co. By 1788, Christopher Harris is listed as a tithable in Madison Co., KY: 1-0-2 first col. is no. of tithables; Col 2. is blacks over 16; Col. 3 is horses and cattle. (It is unclear whether this is the older Christopher Harris or his son. However, this seems to belie the story that Christopher Harris and a large group of kinsman moved to Kentucky with many slaves. They may have sent back to Virginia for slaves, but there appears only one black over 16 in 1787.) Christopher Harris himself appears on the 1787 tax list as taxable, 1 black over 16, 3 horses, 5 cattle. Christopher Harris, appears on 1792 tax list of Madison Co., KY. He had 9 blacks, 15 horses, 43 cattle, and 700 acres of land. (Excerpt from REGISTER of the Kentucky State Historical Society). Other Harrises on same tax list: William Harrias (?) (no land or slaves); Richmd Harris (no land or slaves); Sherwood Harris (80 acres); Benj. Harris (no land or slaves). Other Harrises listed by Joan Colbert Gioe in her tax abstracts for Madison Co. were David, Andrew, James [2X], John [2X], Samuel, Thomas, Mary and Wm. Whether they were related, we do not know. Except for John Harris, these do not seem to be the heirs named in Christopher`s will. Perhaps other documents would show relationships. Madison Co. deed indexes show that Christopher Harris was the grantee (buyer) in these deeds: DB A-109, Tract Muddy ??

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Christopher by comparing test results with other
carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Christopher:
Harris-20034 and Harris-1877 appear to represent the same person because: Harris-20034, recently added, duplicates (incorrect DOB) of two other Christopher Harrises, -1877 and -19353. All three should be merged.
