Pearl Hanen Harris1

ID#2189, b. circa 1878
Father: Pardon Smith Harris
Mother: Sarah Hanen

Birth date: circa 1878
Birth place: Marshall County, West Virginia.1

Pearl and Robert H. Williams obtained a marriage license on 27 November 1901 in Ohio County, West Virginia.1 As of that date, she was living at Wheeling, West Virginia.1 The couple's marriage took place on 28 November 1901 at Wheeling, Ohio County, West Virginia. Samuel Haner certified that he united them in marriage. Although his surname appears to end with an "r" (handwritten differently from the "n" at the end of Pearl's name), I can't help but wonder if he might have been a Hanen also, possibly related to Pearl.1

As of 2 May 1933, Pearl lived at Phoenix, Maricopa County, Arizona.2
