    1910 Fentress Co, TN census Henry Harris 66 England; md 40; 5 of 6 living; merchant; District 1 #96.

    1910
    Henry Harris 66 Eng 1843-1844
    Sarah A. Harris 67 Eng 1842-1843
    Edith Harris 34 Can 1875-1876
    Henry G. Harris 30 MI 1879-1880
    Lily Harris 24 TN 1885-1886
    Selma Harris 1 6/12 1908-1909

    I would guess from Monmouthshire or Gloucestershire? US records always seem to say "England". Exception: 1900 US census gives Wales as bp for bothSarah and Henry and their parents.

    Very interesting that they lived for some period in Port Huron, Michigan, apparently E. G. Harris never left, while his parents went on to TN.

    Carpenter in Wales, as extracted (I guess) from his marriage certificate. He is also a carpenter in the 1880 US census in Pt Huron, MI.

    1910 Fentress Co, TN census Henry Harris 66 England; md 40; 5 of 6 living; merchant; District 1 #96.

    Lily Harris 24 TN 1885-1886

    From 1910 census, retail merchant with General Store.

    Exisiting photo is from "R Tudor Williams, Monnow Street, Monmouth". [Monmouth Trefnyny Sir Fynwy]

    Update: The Fenstree Cty cemetery records his name as Henry G Harris and birthdate as 28 Feb, 1842. Same source gives 28 Aug 1842 as Sarah'sbirthday, but we know thats wrong, she is older than Henry and beside, I have the exact date from Wales. This is the only reference to Henry GHarris (eg. middle initial).
