3) William "Willie" Harris DOB About 1865 in Union County, SC. I couldn't source him after the 1870 census so I don't know which William Harris he was.


A relationship between Tink Harris and Amanda Millwood apparently began just after his return from the Civil War and continued in some fashion for the next 15 to 20 years. Amanda Millwood had 8 children that were possibly James Lemuel Harris children. Tink was separated from his wife, Nancy, in the 1870 U.S. Census and Amanda was living next door to him. His wife and their 3 children was living next door to his parents in 1870. But in 1880, he was living with his wife again. Amanda was still next door. Two of Amanda's children were listed in Tink and Nancy Harris's household, while their own children were living with the Tink's parents, their grandparents, Samuel Pleasant and Sophia Hancock Harris.

James Lemuel Harris and Amanda Millwood's children:
1) Sarah J. "Sallie" Millwood Harris (DOB 10/29/1866 in Union County, SC; DOD 4/30/1904 in Union County, SC) married Joseph Oscar Harris (son of James Marion Harris and Sarah Ann Bevil.
