CHILDREN OF NANCY HARRIS AND JOSEPH DUNCAN
(Child #10 of Reuben Harris and 1st wife)

Nancy Harris3 (Reuben Harris2, Isaac1) was born in 1811 in Jackson County, Tennessee, and died in McDonough County, Illinois when her youngest daughter was about six months old. She married Joseph Duncan, son of her stepmother, Mary Lynch, and her first husband, Thomas Duncan. Joseph was born in about 1807 probably in Buncombe County, North Carolina. After Thomas Duncan's death, Mary (Lynch) Duncan married Reuben Harris (Isaac1), Nancy's father, who had been a widower about 20 years or more at that time.
