Subject: [NYSUF] HARRIS/Southampton
Date: Sat, 11 Jan 2003 14:14:13 EST
Searching for researchers of the George HARRIS family of Southampton,
mentioned in George Rogers Howell's "Early History of Southampton, L.I."
I research the HARRIS family of Montgomery, NY (Orange Co.) and have
reason to believe the family originated in Southampton.
A footnote on page 76 of "The First 150 years of the Goodwill
Presbyterian Church, Montgomery, NY" by James Milligan Dickson, pub. 1880
indicates Harris family of Montgomery descended from George Harris(1657) of
Southampton. (Others who came to Orange Co. from Southampton included the
HOWELL family of East Coldenham, the WOODRUFF family, the HAINES, TOPPING and
the GOODALE families.)
Seeking parents/birthplace of John HARRIS of Montgomery (b. 1748-d. 8
Mar. 1825) m. Abigail? Children: David (1775-4 Feb. 1845), John (1785-1823)
possibly Martha (bap. 27 Sept. 1772, married Peter LOW 12-23-1791). This
family is buried in the Goodwill Presbyterian Church in Montgomery.
