        [Webmaster's note:] George A. Harris is indirectly the person responsible for this website being available. He sent Doug Paulson an e-mail that gave him the name of Isaac Harris, for whom he'd been searching nearly 50 years. He also referred him to Garda Hodgson, who, with her sister, had been working to research all the Isaac Harris descendants for many years, and has prepared this book. Thanks to both George and Garda, all of Isaac's descendants now have this genealogical resource available online. The information on George's family is included with his permission, since he and his family members were born after the cutoff date used for the rest of the book. He also provided some additional details: date of death for his father and place of burial of his parents.
