  1. Numerous Harris researchers have used the names John Franklin Harris, Sr. and John Franklin Harris, Jr. regarding the father and son that are among the earliest settlers in Marshall County. I have yet to see any official document use the middle name of Franklin for either of them, so I will not use it until I see a source for it other than the genealogy files of other researchers. It is interesting to note that John Jr. had a son whose full name was in fact John Franklin Harris per his death certificate, but I have not found his name anywhere followed by the III suffix which would indicate that his father and grandfather also had the same middle name.
