My “cousin”, Beverly Duncan, has written a case study to answer the question, “Was John J.C. Harris, son of George Fuller Harris and Phebe Bailey Harris, of Russell County, Kentucky, the same John J.C. Harris who lived in Horse Creek, Dade County, Missouri,in about 1870, then back to Russell County, Kentucky before 1880?” She asked if I’d be willing to publish her case study here and is hoping to hear from anyone who might also be researching this line.

Was John J. C. Harris, son of George Fuller Harris and Phebe Bailey Harris, of Russell County, Kentucky, the same John J. C. Harris who lived in Horse Creek, Dade County, Missouri, in about 1870, then back to Russell County, Kentucky before 1880?

THE HARRIS HOME, 1850 RUSSELL COUNTY, KENTUCKY

In 1850, John J. C. Harris lived with his parents, George Fuller Harris and Phebe Bailey, in their home, near Somerset, Dist. 2, Russell County, Kentucky.[1]  The 1850 Russell County, Kentucky, Dist. 2, census did not list the relationship to the head of the household.[2]  From their marriage record and the 1880 Kentucky census for Russell County, Phebe became George’s wife and was the mother of his children.[3] [4]  The occupants of George Harris’ home in 1850 were[5]:

Table_1

Another daughter, Victoria Elizabeth was born 3 December 1853, in Russell County, Kentucky, to George F. Harris and Phebe Bailie, residents of Russell County, Kentucky.[6]

GEORGE FULLER HARRIS, 1855

After having ten children together that in 1855 were as old as 24 years and as young as 2 years, on 11 February 1855 George Fuller Harris married his companion of 25 years, Phoebe Bailey, in the home of George F Harris, witnessed by W.F. Harris, J.J.C. Harris, and Agnes Fuller.  George and Phoebe were married by Moses H. Wilson, Minister of the Baptist Church.  George Fuller Harris died at the age of 52 on 6 July 1855 in Russell County, Kentucky. He was buried in the family plot, on his father, Theodore Moses Harris’ farm in Russell County, Kentucky.  In George Fuller Harris’ will, he states:

“Fourth – I will and bequeath unto my son John J. Critton [Crittendon] Harris Bailey all my land lying on the large fork of Wolf Creek not included in the deed made to Francis M. Harris Bailey, also one horse colt and cow and calf, two sheep, and sow and five shoats which he now claims.”

The total acreage of the land was not stated.  All the children mentioned in George Fuller Harris’ will were referred to as “Harris Bailey”.  This may take into consideration the parents’ late marriage.

CONFIRMING VITAL DATES

On the draft registration John J. C. Harris signed in February 1864, he stated his age on 1 July 1863, was 26, which calculates to a birth year of 1837, and agrees with the 1850 census and the date of death on his tombstone.[7]  Visits to Ethel Cemetery, Ethel (near Collinsville), Grayson County, Texas confirmed the birth date on his tombstone as 3 Sept 1837; his death date as March 19, 1896.[8]  John J. C. was buried next to his wife, Martha Ann Floyd who died 31 May 1895.[9]

JOHN J. C. HARRIS AND MARTHA ANN FLOYD MARRIED AND BEGAN THEIR FAMILY

On 3 March 1856, John J.C. Harris and Martha Ann Floyd were married in Pulaski County, Kentucky by M.[atthew] Floyed [Floyd], witnesses were Marion Harris and Rona Floyd, [relationships unknown].[10] [11]  In 1860, the census for Somerset, Pulaski County, Kentucky showed that John J. C. and his new family, consisting of Martha, age 25 born KY; George, age 3 born KY; and John, age 1; born KY, lived near Somerset, Pulaski, Kentucky. John’s occupation was recorded as Bap[tist] Clergyman.  They owned real estate valued at $500. [12]

Table_2

 

JOHN GOES TO WAR

John J. C. Harris served in the Civil War, 3rd Regiment, Kentucky Infantry, Union Army, Company D, as a Private.[13]  He enlisted 5 November 1861, at Camp Wolford [KY] for a period of three years[14].  He appeared on the Muster-In Roll on 1 January 1862 at Camp Boyle [KY]. The Special Muster Roll of April 10, 1863 stated that John J. C. had been absent, sick at home, in Russell County, Kentucky, since 15 March 1862. All persons subject to do military service between the age of twenty and thirty-five were enumerated in the month of February 1864. John J. C. Harris was included in this enumeration with comments written beside his name: “12 mo. 3 K Inftry.”[15] He has contracted measles, typhoid, kidney trouble and other diseases during his military service.[16]

BACK HOME IN RUSSELL COUNTY, KENTUCKY

The tax list for January 1866 listed J. J. C. Harris in Russell County, Kentucky, paying a tax of two cents per lb. on 18 lbs. of cotton.  The tax of thirty-six cents was paid on 28 December.[17]

In 1867, the Salem United Baptist Church, Russell County, Kentucky, named John J. C. Harris as moderator and Martha Ann Harris as charter member.[18]  These three items support the fact that they lived in Russell County, Kentucky very close to the time they leave Kentucky for Missouri.

HORSE CREEK, DADE COUNTY, MISSOURI, 1870

John Jefferson Crittendon Harris, a lifelong, stable resident of both Russell and Pulaski Counties in Kentucky left the familiar Kentucky area, went to Horse Creek, Dade County, Missouri and was enumerated there on the 1870 census.  The occupations recorded on the 1860 through 1880 census all agreed that he was a clergyman.  John J.C. Harris was found on the 1870 census living in Horse Creek township, Dade County, Missouri, occupation – Minister of the Gospel.  He owned real estate valued at $664.[19]  We do not know the physical location of the property included in this amount. The amount may include the land in Kentucky left to John J. C. by his father. It may be land purchased in Missouri, or even elsewhere. Searches in Missouri tax lists have not returned any tax paid by John J. C. Harris.[20] The 1870 census enumeration instructions told us that the property did not have to be in the enumeration district or in that county.

1870 Census Enumeration Instructions excerpt:

“Property -Column 8 will contain the value of all Real Estate owned by the. person enumerated, without any deduction on account of mortgage or other incumbrance, whether within or without the Census subdivision or the county. The value meant is the full market value, known or estimated.”[21]

Without knowing exactly where the land is, nor the dates of purchase or sale, we do not know how “permanent” he intended to be in Missouri. When he came to Missouri, had he immediately bought land, we would have a better idea that he had intended to stay for a longer period.  Tax and land records for John J. C. Harris, in Missouri were researched, with negative results.[22]

Table_3

 

Per John and Martha’s son, Samuel A. Harris’ death certificate, he was born 13 August 1866. Comparing the 1870 census date of 14 June 1870, he would have been 3 years, 10 months of age. However, the census reported his age as 2, which made his birth date 1867 or 1868. With this conflict, we cannot use his age to estimate when the Harris family moved from Kentucky to Missouri.[27]

On 22 March 1870, John C. Harris was appointed chaplain of the new Masonic Lodge at Arcola, Missouri, a village 10 miles north of Greenfield, Missouri. This was before the census was taken.[28]

During the years 1867 – 1872, John J.C. Harris was included as a minister in Dade Co., Missouri, therefore, marriages he performed would have been included in Marriage Book “B” covering 1867-1872. There are no entries in Marriage Book “A” for him because John J. C. and Martha Ann lived in Pulaski and Russell Counties in Kentucky during 1863-1867, the time span covered by Book “A.” After searching through the Marriage Records, Dade County, Missouri, page by page, records of the marriages John J. C. Harris (officiant # 47) performed were not found in this compilation.[29]  Multiple searches for newspapers in Missouri from 1865 to 1880 did not yield any information on John J. C. Harris or John Harris.

BACK HOME IN RUSSELL COUNTY, KENTUCKY…AGAIN

In 1880, we found the J.J.C. Harris family back in Russell County, Kentucky, occupation – preacher. [30]   The family members listed there were:

Find A Grave entry for Victoria Elizabeth Lowry, born 25 Jan 1871, Missouri, and died 20 April 1952, Bryan County Oklahoma, buried in Old Bennington Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Bennington, Bryan County Oklahoma.[31]  Victoria’s birth in 1871, Missouri, supports the hypothesis that the family or at least her mother was in Missouri in 1871.[32]

MINISTER AND FARMER IN TEXAS AFTER 1880

John J. C. Harris was minister of Crossroads Baptist Church of Christ [now known as First Baptist of Celina], Celina, Texas in 1884.  Information was found by the church secretary in an 1895 Church publication that contained a listing of ordained and licensed ministers from every church in the association. John J. C. Harris was listed as an ordained minister from Ethel, Texas.[33]

Besides preaching, his other occupation was farming as confirmed in his compiled Civil War Service Record, image 25. He had maintained a farm throughout his entire life and provided his family and their animals with food and grain.  Farming was the “lay of the land” for any rural family, during the era.[34]

SUMMARY

John J. C. Harris of Russell County, Kentucky has been proven to be the same John J. C. Harris who moved to Missouri about 1870.  We have also proven that John J. C. Harris was back in Russell County, Kentucky before 1880.  This is the same man.

There was no census found that showed a relationship to the head of household with John J. C. Harris and George Fuller Harris in the same household, other than the 1850 Russell County, Kentucky census, when John was age 13.[35] George Fuller Harris gave us the confirmation of the relationship between him and his son, John J. C. Harris, when he left a parcel of land to John in his Last Will and Testament.

The 1870 census, their daughter’s 1871 birth in Missouri, and the continuity of the members of the family in 1860 and 1880 census, confirm that the John J. C. Harris family from Russell County, Kentucky, was the same family that went to Horse Creek, Dade County, Missouri, then returned to Kentucky before 1880. Following is a table that compared the census from 1860 through 1880 to prove the same family moved.[36] [37] [38]  Names and ages were appropriate for these to have been the same family.

Table_5

 

With all the facts reported here, the exact reason or date they went to Missouri has not yet been discovered. They left Kentucky for Dade County, Missouri after 1867 and returned to Kentucky before 1880.  Because of his long-time work with the Baptist Church, it leads to supposition that the Church asked him or he volunteered to go to Horse Creek, Dade County, Missouri to help them get their church started and possibly even help build their building.

Shown below is a list of the places that John J. C. Harris and his family lived during and after the Civil War.  These residences were listed in his Compiled Service Record.[42]

Table_6

 

They made at least one more move after this – to Ethel, Grayson County, Texas where Martha Ann (Floyd) Harris died 31 May 1895, followed by John J. C. Harris’ death on 19 March 1896. They are buried together in the Ethel Cemetery.
