Harris Descendants       I      Harris Outline

 

According to census records, Thomas Harris was born about 1805 in Nova Scotia, Canada. (His headstone shows his birth year as 1800).

As his brother, or half-brother, John, was born in 1780 in Roscommon, Ireland this puts the family's emmigration from Ireland between the two birthdates. In any case, the brothers moved to Lubec on October 15, 1818 (according to John Harris' Naturalization Card).

They would be residents in Lubec for the rest of their lives, where Thomas was a boat builder.

He married, probably in Nova Scotia, Elizabeth Ryarson, born 1819 in Campobello, New Brunswick, Canada.
