CHILDREN OF MARTHA HARRIS AND JOHN ANGEL
(Child #2 of Wooten Harris and Frances Adams)

Martha "Patsy" Harris3 (Wooten2, Isaac1) was born October 16, 1786, in that part of Burke County, North Carolina that became part of Rutherford County, after 1795. She married John Angel on January 3, 1811 in Rutherford County. He was born about 1786, and died in 1863 in Marion County, Arkansas. The information on this family was sent to me by Elizabeth Reynolds whose husband, Leo Reynolds, is a descendant of John Angel and Martha Harris. There is a record of four children for this couple. Their first three children probably were born in Rutherford County, North Carolina, and the last child probably was born in Hickman County, Tennessee.
