 wed March 13, 1800 to Rebecca Evans.


I make some assumptions here: The records of Washington County contain many records of Harris, Evans and Miller marriages and I have tried to put them into a timeline which works according to some assumed relationships. I am fairly sure that these are all related, but sometimes uncertain which was father or uncle, nephew or son. Women, having married names, are easier in one sense. Harris and Evans and Miller couples were wed by Rev. John Evans Harris, during the decades 1840's-1850's, which probably indicates relationships: John Evans wed Margaret Roe Dec 27, 1849, Mary Ann Evans wed Turney J. Davis March 8, year not listed, Andrew J. Thomas wed Charlotte E. Miller May 26, 1853 are examples of couples wed by Rev. John Evans Harris during an appropriate time frame. If I discover more evidence to verify exact relationship, I shall change this family tree accordingly.
