CHILDREN OF MARY ANN HARRIS AND WILLIAM CARLAND
(Child #9 of Benjamin Harris and Rutha Byers)

Mary Ann Harris3 (Benj.2, Isaac1) was born in about 1805 in Greenville County, South Carolina, and died in 1878. She was age 48 when she testified on March 21, 1853, before the White County, Tennessee court concerning her father and mother's deaths. Her mother (Rutha Harris) had never received a Revolutionary War widow's pension after her husband's death. Mary Ann's testimony was to enable her to obtain the money due Rutha up to the time of her death. Mary Ann married William Carland in Tennessee. His testimony was also included in the pension papers of Benjamin Harris. He also testified before the White County, Tennessee, Court on March 21, 1853. At that time he was 49 years of age. He was age 48 in 1850 according to the White County, Tennessee, 1850 Census, and he was born in South Carolina. The names and birthdates of their children were sent to me by a descendant, Ruth Helen England. She was in possession of letters that the children had written home which gave her the places where some of them lived at different times.
