The John Harris / Rachel Milly Kittrell Family of Abbeville District, S. C.We can offer information that may help Kittrell and Harris researchers of John Harris and Rachel Milly Kittrell Harris's line.For genealogists exploring Abbeville District, S. C., during the years 1780 to 1835 there is confusion of identities because multiple residents are named John Harris, William Harris, Milly Harris, and Elizabeth Harris. Yet it is possible to identify and separate them, although the records are sparse and the repetition of names muddles an easy search.Rachel Milly Kittrell's husband John Harris served South Carolina in the Revolutionary War, having migrated to the Abbeville area before war erupted. His record ("Pvt., 1 Regt. S. C. Continental Line, Rev. War") is noted on his tombstone. He and Rachel Milly were among the small enclave who came to Old Ninety Six from Granville County, N. C., in the pre-war years.According to Granville County Deed Book I (Eye), p. 167, John Harris and his wife Rachel sold land to John Waldrop on December 24, 1770. Deed Book H states that Richard Harris had made a deed of gift to his son John Harris on November 23, 1766. Thus around 1770 the Harrises likely moved to what would become the Abbeville District of Old Ninety Six. They would reside in the old Hillsborough township at the fork of the Little River and Long Cane Creek.John Harris died in 1831 and is buried in the Harris-Wideman Cemetery, formerly designated in Abbeville, now in McCormick County. His will (Box 43, Pack 959, Abbeville Probate Court) mentions his wife Milly, his sons William, Robert, John, and Thomas S., and his daughters Elizabeth, Polly, Sarah, Caroline, Peggy, Milly, and Leuisa Catherine. At the time he died some of these children were under the age of 21. The will mentions also Robert and James McCaslan, termed "friends." Witnesses include Patrick Gibson and Joseph S. Wideman. John Harris's son William [Stoutly] Harris and James McCaslan are the executors. He leaves his widow a plantation of 100 acres plus "three other small pieces attached to said tract, amounting to ninety-one acres, making in all 191 acres," plus "one other tract of land containing 160 acres" in Abbeville "on Bold Branch whereupon Henry Wideman now resides on adjoining lands of Robert McCaslan, George McFarland and others."This John Harris's name, as well as that of the Reverend John Harris, is included in Deed Plats: Plat Book A. Ninety Six District, South Side of Saluda River. Commissioner of Locations, 1784-1785. This volume of original drawings from the surveys shows an annotated diagram of land assigned to Rachel Milly Kittrell's husband, described thus:"John Harris as a citizen 86 acres of land situate on a branch of Little River bounding NW on land laid out for David Black & Andrew Kerr, E end and land out for John Dickey. Surveyed by Thomas Findley D. S. on the 30th of May inst. as per platt thereof recorded this 29th of May 1785. Robert Anderson, C. L. B. O."John Harris seems to be the first to have title to this particular acreage, but the deed records of Granville signal that this evidently was not his earlliest Abbeville home. The war, begun in the late 1770s, would continue through the mid -1780s. Likely John and Rachel Milly, along perhaps with a young child or children, settled on other Abbeville land before 1780. The 1785 grant was made to "citizen" John Harris in wartime. The 86 acres are within the old Hillsborough settlement, established in 1762. Comprised in the 28,000 acres of Hillsborough are the Huguenot town of New Bordeaux and farmlands along Long Cane Creek, Bold Branch, Buffalo Creek, and Little River. Page 116 of Robert L. Meriwether's The Expansion of South Carolina, 1729-1765, Philadelphia: Porcupine Press, 1974, features a map of Old Ninety Six showing the locations of the townships of Hillsborough, Boonesborough, and Londonborough (or Belfast) settlements.South of Hillsborough (the largest of the three) and just north of the Edgefield District boundary is the Barksdale Ferry Road, stretching from Saluda to the Savannah River. In southern Abbeville it is the main east-west thoroughfare of the time. The region's post office is at Longmire's Store (established 1809 in the north of Edgefield District), the first postmaster being John Longmire.Among the many residents in Hillsborough enumerated as heads of households in the earliest census reports are John Harris, Will Stoutly Harris, Henry Wideman, Adam Wideman, Cornelius Collier, Edward Collier, Joshua Hill, Uel Hill, William Hill, Robert Foster, Drury Breazeal, Patrick Gibson, James McCaslan, Robert McCaslan, Charles Brit, Hickerson Barksdale, John McCullough, Pierre Roger, Peter B. Roger, Peter Delishaw, Lazarus Covin, Peter Belote, and Peter Moragne. In the 1800 census of Abbeville the names of John Harris, Edward Collier, Lazarus Covin, Peter Belote, William Stoutly Harris, Peter Moragne, and Joshua Hill appear on the same page. In 1820 Uel Hill, Peter Delishaw, Charles Brit, Joshua Hill, and Isaac Moragne are clustered together, as are John Harris, Adam Wideman, and Edward W. Collier. Listed together also are Peter B. Roger(s), Henry Wideman, John Wideman, Samuel Wideman, and Robert McCaslan. The Abbeville plat books likewise signal that some of these are near neighbors. The family of John Harris and Rachel Milly Kittrell lives among settlers who in the main are Huguenot and Scots-Irish immigrants, although the Harris family is of neither group. The dominant religious faith in the settlement is Presbyterianism.Perhaps the most notable of the Abbeville men named John Harris is a prominent Presbyterian minister. He is of no kinship to the husband of Rachel Milly Kittrell. He too has a son named John, a Revolutionary War soldier who served under General Pickens and who married the general's daughter. The Reverend John Harris established and pastored various Abbeville churches, including Hopewell, founded in 1750 as Lower Long Cane Church, but his ministry was based mainly in the northwest of the county around Rocky River. He was educated at Princeton and was married to Mary Dashiell Handy. Their children, in addition to the soldier John, are Handy Harris, a Revolutionary War soldier who became a physician; Elizabeth Harris, who married Joseph Irving; Ann Handy Harris, who married Elijah McCurdy and settled in Lincoln County, Tenn.; and Thomas Harris, who settled in DeKalb, Ga. The Reverend John Harris's will was proven on April 5, 1791. Several plats assigned to him are represented in the Ninety Six plats book. Most are along the Savannah River.In Abbeville genealogy the recurring of the Harris names John, Milly, Elizabeth, and William offers a punishing problem. Here, with our identifications, is a list of the children of John Harris and Rachel Milly Kittrell, along with grandchildren and some great-grandchildren, many of them sharing the family given names:William Stoutly Harris m. (1) Mary S. Paul, m. (2) Sarah J. BakerElizabeth Harris m. (1) Cornelius Collier, Jr., who d. 1790 (Box 20, Pack 442; he left 14 slaves), m. (2) Solomon Alston Hunter, d. 1799 (Box 47, Pack 1063). Elizabeth and her brother "Will Stoutly Harris" served as Hunter's co-administrators. Elizabeth is listed in the 1790 Abbeville census as "Elizabeth Colyer," owner of the 14 slaves mentioned in Collier's estate settlement. Hersecond husband, whom she married ca. 1792, was the brother-in-law of her uncle, Isham Kittrell (b. 1762, N. C.), who was married to Ann Alston Hunter of Granville Co./Warren Co., N. C.Milly Harris m. Adam Wideman. Milly's name (probably Emilia) can be confused with that of her mother and of her sister-in-law Milly Stanfield Link, who married John Harris, Jr.Robert A. Harris m. (1) Theresa Cason, m. (2) Mary Susan Wideman. Moved to Mississippi.Polly Harris m. William TatumJohn Harris (d. 1817) m. Milly Stanfield Link (b. 1788), daughter of Robert Link. Their children: Elizabeth Harris (b. 1814 Abbeville, d. 1884, Lee Co., Miss.) m. Braxton Cason; William Harris (d. 1839 Abbeville) m. Elizabeth (Betsy) Glover, daughter of Wiley Glover and Jemima Satterwhite. The children of William Harris and Elizabeth Glover are John C. Harris (d. 1844) and Henrietta A. Scott of Savannah; Mary F. Harris (d. before 1839), wife of James F. Herten; Rebecca Satterwhite Harris m. George Alexander Addison; Wiley Glover Harris; Sarah A. Harris m. Col. Marshall Fraser, whose daughter is Mary ElizabethFraser; William Harris m. Mary Ann Caldwell, whose children are Wiley Harris and Mary Frances Harris; Jemima Harris m. Nathan Lipscomb; and Elizabeth Ann Harris.Sarah (Sally) Harris m. Joshua WidemanCaroline Harris m. Tinsley RuckerPeggy (Margaret) Harris m. Wade CowanLeuisa Catherine Harris m. William Edwin LinkThomas S. Harris listed in the 1830 Abbeville census as 30-40, wife 20-3-, 2 sons, 2 daughtersOur ancestors are John Harris, Rachel Milly Harris, Elizabeth Harris Collier, and Solomon Alston Hunter. Having researched Abbeville records for a number of years, we offer this as our interpretation of the Harris-Kittrell genealogy. It is, of course, subject to evaluation and comment and perhaps to correction.Hunter McKelva ColeMartha Cole ResterJuly 2006
