CHILDREN OF JACOB HARRIS AND WIVES
(1)   MATILDA TABOR   (2)   CYNTHIA HAMON

(Child #8 of Zachariah Harris and Bathsheba Haley)

Jacob Harris3, (Zach.2, Isaac1) was born February 4, 1810 in Hickman County, Tennessee. When he was about three years old his family moved from Hickman County, to Humphreys County, Tennessee. He moved to Fayette County, Illinois along with the rest of the Harris family in about 1829. He married Matilda Tabor on March 2, 1835 in Morgan County, Illinois. They were included in the 1835 Fayette County State Census enumeration in which there was a male child under the age of ten years indicated in the family of Jacob Harris. In 1840, he and his wife were childless, so this son apparently died. The last mention found of Matilda in Fayette County records, was when she signed the deed dated May 9, 1844 with the other heirs of Zachariah Harris when they sold their father's eighty acres.

Jacob Harris married his second wife, Cynthia Hamon, on March 3, 1850 in Fayette County, Illinois. She was born in about 1811 in Georgia; she was age 39 when the Fayette County Illinois 1850 Census was taken. She married her first husband, Anderson Jackson, on October 13, 1839, also in Fayette County. They had a daughter, Lucinda Jackson, who was born in about 1840 in Illinois.

Jacob Harris was in Wilson County, Kansas at census time in 1870. He was listed as "age 58, born in Tennessee," and he was a blacksmith. His wife was "D. Harris, age 56, born in Virginia." P. Harris, age 30, born in Illinois, was listed with them. The will of Jacob's brother, Benjamin Harris, was dated October 1, 1870, and Letters Testamentary on his estate was granted by the Wilson County, Kansas Court to Jacob Harris on February 4, 1873.
