I am trying to learn more about the Harrises who lived in Longford up until
the mid to late 1800s, specifically Alexander (born ca 1824), his son
William (born ca 1837), and his grandson, the elusive John Henry Harris
(born 1873), my great-grandfather. As best I can make out, William was
married to Arabella Anderson and Alexander was married to Anne Donnelly, all
of the Templemichael area. John Henry moved to England in the latter part of
the 1800s, marrying a girl from Norfolk, and settling in the London area,
all without appearing on any census forms.
Some of this information is from family records, some from the archives of
brs genealogy (expensive but authoritative, I think).
