The Bible passed from the Harris' to their granddaughter, Elizabeth "Bess" (Harris) Stewart, who then gave it to her granddaughter, Barbara (Newell) Suarez.

Thomas Sherman Terrill

ID#578, b. 20 November 1834, d. 19 September 1933
Father: Amos Terrill
Mother: Matilda Lewis

Birth date: 20 November 1834
Birth place:1 or on 22 November 1834.2
Birth place: (West) Virginia.1

Another spelling of his surname is Terrell.1

Thomas married Agnes Harris, daughter of Benjamin Harris and Nancy Agnes Campbell, in March 1871 Rev. Rossel was the officiating minister.3

Thomas died at age 98 from senility on 19 September 1933 in Marshall County, West Virginia. The death certificate gives the town as Glen Easton, which would have been the location of the post office for his residence on Terrill Ridge. As a result, it seems likely that Thomas died at home.1 Thomas's body was interred on 21 September 1933 in the Fork Ridge Universalist Church Cemetery, Fork Ridge Road, Glen Easton, Marshall County, West Virginia; his name appears on the gravestone as "Thomas S. Terrill." The inscription reads, "Thomas S. Terrill ~ Agnes his wife."1,4

Roberta J. Harris1

ID#582, b. circa 1840
Father: William Harris
Mother: Charlotte Sue Bartlett

Birth date: circa 1840
Birth place: Virginia.1

I have found conflicting information in the 1850 and 1860 federal census reports for the children of William and Charlotte Harris. They have an 11-year-old son in 1850 named Robert, but a 20-year-old daughter in 1860 named Roberta J. - and my guess is that they are the same child but recorded incorrectly in one of the years. Unfortunately, I have not yet found anything to resolve the issue.2,1

ID#595, b. 10 September 1837, d. 24 April 1894
John A. Harris
Father: Benjamin Harris
Mother: Nancy Agnes Campbell

Birth date: 10 September 1837
Birth place: Marshall County, Virginia.2,3

John married Isabella "Isabel" Littleton, daughter of Charles Littleton and Rachel Reese, on 28 June 1860 in Marshall County, Virginia. W. R. Howe certified that he united them in marriage.4

There were four draft registrations between 1863 to 1865 for the Civil War. John was enumerated during the month of October 1863. The following information was recorded about him: age 26 as of 01 July 1863, white, a farmer, married, born in Virginia.5 He was living at Fork Ridge, Marshall County, West Virginia.5

As of 1865, John and Isabella lived at Fairbury, Livingston County, Illinois.2 Information received from another Harris researcher who descends from John and Isabel: "John was was given 160 acres for his service in the Civil War.   When arriving by wagon train to claim the land, he discovered that land was covered in timber and would take too long to clear for farming.   He sold the land and bought wagons and horses to go into the freight business.   He is listed in a census as a teamster.   Two sons continued the family business after his death."6

John died at age 56 on 24 April 1894 at Fairbury, Livingston County, Illinois.8,3,2 He has also been reported to have died on 28 April 1894.2

An online obituary was published on 28 April 1894 by the in The Fairbury Blade, Fairbury, Livingston County, Illinois.2 The following is a transcription of that obituary:

     "John A. Harris was born in Marshall Co. VA September 10, 1838.  He grew up in that vicinity, developing a strong rugged character for which he was noted through life. On June 29, 1860, he was married to Miss Isabella Littleton, who, after many years of loving companionship, survives him. To this union 13 children were born, 12 of whom are living.  During the War of the Rebellion Mr. Harris was loyal to his country and bore his share toward keeping W Va in the Union. It was his nature to be faithful where so many in his vicinity were unfaithful.  He enlisted in the union armies, and although more than once refused on account of physical disability, he persisted and was finally accepted, serving with credit in the 17th regiment W VA infantry.  He was mustered out as a sergeant.
     Immediately after the War he came West, settled at Fairbury in 1865 and resided here to the time of this death.  His death was sudden, following only a few days after his taken sick.
     The funeral was held at the M.E. church at 10 o'clock Thursday morning and was numerously attended.   Rev. L.F. Cullom preached the sermon.
     Although born and raised in a slave state, Mr. Harris was always an ardent Republican, being from his youth intensely opposed to slavery.  He was the only man in his township who dared to vote for Abraham Lincoln in 1860 and he did so in spite of bitter threats and opposition. He was not highly educated in his youth but was a great reader and kept himself well informed on all the questions of the day.  He was kind hearted and honest, winning and keeping the respect of all. He labored hard to support his large family and filled his relations as a citizen to the best of his ability.
     The children living are Mrs. Rose Enix of Grafton, WVA, I.C. Harris who is married and lives in Fairbury, Frank Harris of Henry, IL, Mrs. Frank Rose living near Cropsey, Mrs. John Finnegan, Robert Harris, Mrs. Lutie Woods, Benjamin, Charles, Grace, Maud and George Harris of Fairbury, the latter aged 10 years.
     The sympathy of all is due this stricken family in the hour of their great trial."

John's body was interred in the Graceland Cemetery, Fairbury, Livingston County, Illinois.8
