CHILDREN OF ZACHARIAH WILLIAM HARRIS AND MARY ANN NANNEY
(Child #3 of Reuben J. Harris and Alice Wolf)

Zachariah William Harris4 (Reuben J3., Reuben2, Isaac1) was born August 15, 1826 in Jackson County, Tennessee. He married Mary Ann Nanney, daughter of William Nanney and Ruth Harris3 (Benjamin2, Isaac1), on March 7, 1847 in McDonough County, Illinois. Sue Miklas of Colorado Springs, Colorado, a descendant on this line, points out that Mary Ann's name was recorded as Ruth Nanny on the marriage record, but the same date was recorded in their family bible for her ancestor Mary Ann Nanny and Zachariah Harris. Sue Miklas was very helpful in establishing this line.

Mary Ann Nanney was born May 28, 1833 in Jefferson County, Illinois, and died in March 1905 in Nodaway County, Missouri. Obituary of Zachariah W. Harris states, "He died last Saturday (December 19, 1885) at his home three miles north of Quitman, (Nodaway County, Illinois) after an illness of several weeks . . . . The deceased leaves an aged companion and several children to mourn his death."

The obituary of his wife appeared in the Burlington Junction Post on March 4, 1905 (Note: Burlington Junction is in Nodaway County, Missouri): "Mrs. Mary Harris, after a tedious illness lasting four years, passed away last Tuesday, the immediate cause of her death being meningitis. She has resided at the place where she died for the past 37 years and was one of the oldest settlers of Nodaway County. Mary Ann Nanney was born 26 May 1833 in Jefferson County, Illinois. She married Zachariah Harris in McDonough County, of the same state, in 1847, where they lived until 1866 when they moved to this county and since the spring of 1866 she has lived in the residence where she died. Her husband died in 1885. Four children blessed this union: Levi Harris, who died in 1877; Charles W. Harris, of Vining, Okla.; Mrs. John G. Limpp, Mound City, Missouri, and William Harris of this place."
