2. Appearance in Document, 28 Mar 1885, Cumberland County, North Carolina, United States. Probate records for Moses Haywood mention several Harris minor children as heirs, although neither parent is mentioned. Minors are Dora Harris, David Harris, Kinnie Harris, and Ola Harris. [The records do mention Ben and Lou Harris, but that is in a separate section of the document, implying to me that the children listed are not theirs.] Source: Cumberland County Original Estates NC 1758-1930 CR. 029.508.28 North Carolina Archives.
