CHILDREN OF BENJAMIN HARRIS AND MARY WALKER
(Child #6 of Wooten Harris and Frances Adams)

Benjamin Harris2 (Wooten2, Isaac1) was born November 30, 1795, in that part of Burke County, North Carolina that became part of Rutherford County after 1795. He moved to Hickman County, Tennessee in 1818 with his father's family where he married Mary Walker in about 1822. She was born January 22, 1802 in Georgia. Later, in about 1827-8, Benjamin and family accompanied his father, Wooten Harris, and other members of the Harris family when they moved from Hickman County, Tennessee, to Illinois. Benjamin made his home in Montgomery County, Illinois, and died there on September 8, 1838. He was buried in Fillmore Cemetery, Montgomery County, Illinois. His widow, Mary, died May 8, 1881, and was buried beside her husband.

An extract from the Montgomery County News gives information about Benjamin Harris. He lost a horse, saddle, and blanket which were stolen by the Indians shortly after he first arrived in Tennessee. A document dated June 21, 1818, was found in the effects of the late Isaiah Toberman addressed to Benjamin Harris. This was an order signed by Capt. Josiah Hannah of the Tennessee Mounted Gun Men to enable Benjamin to recover the amount of his loss from the government.
