      It is a small world. If I can't find my ancestors in the normal way, I tend to go up and see if there is a downward connection. In my family notes I had written:

      "I havenít been able to prove the parents of Sarah. A number of years ago, another researcher reported her as the daughter of James and Sarah Harris of St. Martinís Parish, Virginia.
      27 April 1766 James and Sarah Harris of St. Martin's Parish, Louisa County, Virginia [formerly Hanover County] lived on a branch of Long Creek beside Waddy, Pope, Marks, Jones and Sharp Ė selling this property 11 August 1766 [Louisa County Deeds 1759-1774 by Davis]

      One line that has been well researched from immigrants Capt. Thomas and Adria Harris was through their son Robert Harris who married Mary Clairborn; and their grandson William and Temperance Harris.

      William and Temperance Harris had children: Benjamin, Robert, William, Jr., John, James and Jemima. Several members of this family are found in the records of the Hanover County area."

      I'm trying to prove or disprove my Samuel Howell, whose sons, David and Reece, settled in Lincoln County, TN is the same man as the Rev. Samuel Howell.

      If I find a good lead, will let you know.
