Descendants of Ruth Harris

Chapter 7 of Part IV, Descendants of Benjamin Harris

By Garda M. Hodgson


CHILDREN OF RUTH HARRIS AND WILLIAM NANNEY
Child #7 of Benjamin Harris and Rutha Byers

Ruth Harris3 (Benj.2, Isaac1) was born in Greenville County, South Carolina about 1801; her age was indicated as 20-30 in the 1830 census of White County, Tennessee. She married William Nanney, son of Shadrack Nanney and Mary Cobb. He was born in Rutherford County, North Carolina in about 1799; he was age 30-40 at census time in 1830. Their family also was enumerated in the 1835 state census and 1840 federal census for Fayette County, Illinois. William Nanney and his wife Ruth sold their 40 acres in Fayette County, Illinois, on January 10, 1850.

Sue Miklas, a descendant of child #4, Mary Ann Nanney, was very helpful in establishing this line. Mary Ann's name was mistakenly recorded as Ruth on the record of her marriage to Zachariah William Harris. Also, a relative had said Mary Ann's name was actually Mary Ann Harris who was raised by the Nanney family after her parents died. Sue obtained bible records from a relative which proved these claims were errors. In fact, it was the other way around. After her parents died, Mary Ann Nanney was raised by a Harris family. Sue Miklas did a tremendous amount of research to further establish this line.
