Samuel G. Harris and Tryphenia Harris

Samuel G. Harris married Tryphenia Harris and they had
a son, Fleming Matthew Harris who married Augusta Ann Harris and they had
a son, Gamewell Calhoun Harris who married Sarah "Sally" Brakefield and they had
a son, Edward Boyd Harris who married Ida Mae Shaw and they had
a son, Clyde Harris who married Mabel Louise Cohen and they had
a son, William "Billy" Clyde Harris who married Peggy Annette Prince and they had
Stan

Samuel G. Harris (DOB: abt 1772 in ? ; DOD: Between 1850-1860 in Union County, SC) Samuel migrated from Virginia some time after 1790 with his brother, Marion. They may have been from Chesterfield County, Virginia because that is where Tryphenia was from. They came with Tryphenia and her parents, Thomas and Sallie Harris. Marion Harris settled in Rutherford County, NC and Samuel settled on Brown's Creek in Union County, SC near what is now Kelly's Station on the Lockhart Branch of the Southern Railroad. Union County was formed in 1775 after the Cherokee Indians gifted the land to the Greenville/Spartanburg County lines to the King as a good will gesture. Settlers poured into the new land and Samuel was one of them.

Samuel G. Harris is on Buckingham County Virginia Marriage Records marrying Tryphenia Harris on September 30, 1790. Tryphenia Harris (DOB: 12/14/1771 in Chesterfield County, VA; DOD: 8/23/1855 in Union County, SC) was the daughter of Thomas Harris (DOB: 1743 in Goochland, VA; DOD: 1796 in Union County, SC) and Sarah "Sally" Lacy (DOB: 1747 in Hanover, VA; DOD: 1810 in Union County, SC). They had 5 children that I'm aware of: Tryphenia "Tryphena" Harris, Flemming "Flemmin" Harris, Franscanna Harris, Nancy Taylor Harris, Pleasant Harris.

Household Tips

Place a piece of white chalk in your silver chest or jewel box to absorb moisture and help prevent tarnishing of silverware and jewelry.

Wiping the inside of the fridge with vinegar helps prevent mildew because acid kills mildew fungus.

Place newspaper in the bottom of the crisper drawer in your refrigerator to keep vegetables crisp longer.

Place a small box of soda in your refrigerator to absorb odors.

Use vertical strokes when washing windows outside and horizontal for inside windows. This way you can tell which side has the streaks.

What Is Wrong With This Kitchen?

What's Wrong With This Kitchen?

I found these photos of beautiful kitchens online but I have my own opinion about what is wrong with these kitchens.

Note: Any time you cook on a stove, you create steam, greasy smoke. Despite having a good stove vent, there will still be greasy smoke around the stove.

This beautiful kitchen looks great doesn't it? Look carefully. Do you see a refrigerator? I don't which means it must be a long way from the stove and sink. And there are an awful lot of accent lights. I count 8 canned lights just in this photo and over and under counter flourescents. So when you are working in this kitchen you are using a LOT of electricity just to accent this kitchen, as well as give working light. That's not very green.



What can I possibly see wrong about the beautiful kitchen below? In my opinion, the stone tile on the floor and backsplash will be hard to keep clean in a kitchen. I personally would only use a high gloss tile backsplash in order to be easily cleaned. I like something I can spray with cleaner and use a sponge to wipe off. Then use rinsed sponge to wipe again. This is convenient, quick, efficient. A porous tile will only look grimy and not be easy to clean. And a stone floor is especially vulnerable to having grime and grease mashed into the grooves and crevices and not easy to mop. That is why maids had to get on their hands and knees and scrub stone floors in castles! This kitchen also has a lot of electrical lights despite having plenty of natural light. Notice that there are canned, pendant, under counter and in cabinet lights.


This beautiful, light filled kitchen can't have any down sides can it? In my opinion there are a couple. Notice where the overhead cabinets are and where the plates are stored in plate racks. Being beside the sink, I would think that those few upper cabinets house the dishes and glasses. But notice where the dishwasher is? It's one of those glamorous hidden dw's. It's to the left of the sink. Imagine yourself at the sink unloading the dishwasher. Now, you're getting it! You have to try to reach those upper cabinets to put the dishes in from the dw. You can't do it because you can't reach the cabinets. You have to close the dw in order to access the dish cabinet! I also wouldn't have wooden countertops, especially right next to the stove. Grease will tend to make it grimey. The wood floor is lovely except it doesn't have a high gloss polyurethane seal. Again, you will be smushing grease and dirt into that floor. I had a high gloss polyurethane floor in a kitchen one time and eventually the wear areas began to show grime that you couldn't get up. The only way to keep a wood floor looking nice in a kitchen is to refinish it every 5 years or so. That's a pain so I won't have a wood floor in my kitchen again.


Surely there is nothing wrong with this lovely kitchen. Just the right amount of lights, upper cabinets, good granite tops, high gloss wood floors, plenty of natural light, the appliances are well placed...what could be wrong? This kitchen is obviously open to a living area so, in my opinion, I would have had a higher bar on the island. This would have hidden the sink and stove from the living area and hidden some of the mess when cooking. Otherwise, I really like this kitchen.


This is such a very ornate kitchen surely there is nothing wrong here. In my opinion, this is beautiful as long as you don't actually use the stove. Try cleaning all the scrollwork, accents, molding, ironwork! Especially around a stove that will have greasy smoke. The backsplash also looks like another porous or stone tile and is not smart to have behind a stove.


Gosh, this kitchen is so beautiful and formal. But, in my opinion, this kitchen has some problems. Notice the distance between the sink/stove/fridge. I'd say it's at least 8-9 steps from fridge to sink. That is a lot of walking. For some reason the stove is the only cabinet area that is WHITE! Of all the places, I would not have chosen that area to be white. Again, a cleaning problem. So is keeping those soaring buttresses clean, and that fancy chandelier. Try climbing a ladder and cleaning all that during your Spring Clean. Of course, if you have a house this nice, you probably have a housecleaner but then you have to worry about the liability of having the housecleaner on a ladder trying to dust that chandelier and fancy WHITE arches. The floor and backsplashes appear to be stone or porous tile.


This beautiful modern kitchen has a few problems too. Again, imagine standing at the sink and emptying the dishwasher. The only upper cabinet is a several steps away from the dw which is not very efficient. Personally, I would have done without one of those corner window pairs in order to have more upper cabinets. There is still the remaining window, plus the skylights for natural light. Again, I would have raised the bar in the island to help hide any mess. I really like the quilted stainless steel backsplash and over the stove vent!

The Lighthouse by P.D. James


I love English mysteries and I really like P.D. James. This novel was a great one.

Combe Island off the Cornish coast of England serves as a place for men/women in high authority to find peace and vacation with security. It has a house and a handful of cottages with a staff. Everything takes a turn when one of the guests is found hanging from the railing of the lighthouse. Considering the VIPs that use this island, Inspector Adam Dalgliesh and his two assistants, Kate Miskin and Francis Benton-Smith, are sent to handle this death delicately.

The novelist, Nathan Oliver, and his daughter, Miranda, with his copy editor, Dennis Tremell, have come for their regular 2 week visit every quarter. He is the last person who was actually born on the island and anyone born on the island is allowed to come and stay any time. He is not a nice man and is threatening to move on the island permanently. But he is found hanging from the lighthouse and his death is being investigated.

While on the island, one of the guests comes down with SARS and spreads it to Inspector Dalgliesh before he is diagnosed and removed from the island. Dalgliesh is also struggling with his love for Emma and his desire to marry her.

Very good book!

Sunset Express by Robert Crais


This was a good, easy read. Elvis Cole is a Los Angeles private detective. When a wealthy woman is kidnapped and found murdered, her husband is arrested. He hires a high profile attorney named Jonathan Green to defend him. Greene and his Big Green Defense Machine hire Cole to investigate the lead police detective to make sure she didn't invent the evidence. Elvis Cole investigates Police Detective Angela Rossi, and despite her out of control anger issues (she attacks him), he finds her clean and reports this to Greene and Co. So Jonathan Greene uses Cole to follow some more leads and, before long, Cole is becoming suspicious about what he is finding. The side story is about his long distance girlfriend, Lucy Chenier, and her son coming out to L.A. to visit him.

There were some weak spots in the story but overall, I liked it and would read some more by Crais. I ended up really liking Elvis Cole and Lucy Chenier.

Household Tips

If there are stains on the neck or cuffs of shirts ("ring around the collar" remember that commmercial?) then take some shampoo and rub it in. Shampoo is made to cut body oil.

To make a zipper slide easier, run some bar soap down the teeth.

To make your clothes dry faster and fluffier in the dryer, throw in a couple of tennis balls.

If whites are getting gray or yellowed then try some blueing or Rit® White Wash.

To keep the dye from colored fabrics from bleeding in the washer, wash in cold water with a cup of salt OR vinegar OR a color safe bleach OR a scoop of Oxi Clean® with every load.

Before you wear a new garment, put a little clear nail polish on the front and back of each button. Buttons will stay on longer when their threads are sealed.
