My husband remembers his great uncle Leo coming to stay with them when he was "passing thru". This would have been in the 1950's-1960's so it was after WWII. Leo was a severe alcoholic who wandered around a lot and whose work was sporadic. But when he was in Spartanburg, he would ask to stay with his nephew, Billy Harris. So Stan and Kenny would end up in the top bunk while Uncle Leo slept on the bottom bunk. Stan said he would mumble and talk all night long in his sleep and it was always to do with the War. He would say things like, "No, Sir!", "Yes, Captain!" and so forth. It would scare them. So I assume Leo was suffering from PTSD or what was known back then as shell shock, battle fatigue or combat stress reaction. Stan thinks Leo was in the Pacific fighting the Japanese. I would love to find out more about his WWII service.

Leo Wilson Harris married Frances Sibbie Bowman on 3/6/1948 in Union, Union County, SC. She was born 1/30/1930 in Winston-Salem, Forsyth County, NC to Pearlie G. Bowman and Rose B. Chandler. They had no children that I'm aware of. They divorced and she married then Harry Larue Jeffords (DOB 2/7/1922 in Lynchburg, Lee County, SC; DOD 5/28/1996 in Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, NC). She may have also been married to a Bell, but I don't know anything more than the last name.

Leo's brother, Walt Harris, died in 1951 when Leo was 33 yrs old. Next his mother, Ida Mae Shaw Harris, died in 1955 when Leo was 37 yrs old. The very next year, he lost his brother Clyde Harris in a car accident in 1956. In 1963, he lost his brother Gene Carroll Harris.

My husband remembered one time he rode with his father, Billy Harris, to go get Leo Harris from the hospital. He had had a heat stroke. His temperature was higher than the thermometer could register. He survived it! He always carried a card with Billy's address and phone number just in case something happened to him, they would know who to call. When he died, that was how they notified the family. The hospital called Billy.

Leo, himself, died 11/27/1973 in High Point, Guilford County, NC at the age of 55 yrs old of a myocardial infarction (basically a heart attack).

Walt Harris married Madge Wood about 1927 in Union County, SC. Madge Wood Harris was born about 1908 in SC to Booth and Mattie Wood. They had one child that I'm aware of:

1) Helen Harris (DOB Abt 1928 in Union County, SC; DOD ? in ? ) married ?

There is no 87 Walker St, Union, SC any more. But here is Walker Street from Google satellite. It's basically across the street from Monarch Mill where he worked.


Walt Harris owned a motel court on the eastside of Spartanburg, Spartanburg County, SC. It had a house that was a bar and pool room and one room cabins behind it. It was on East Main Street past Hillcrest Mall. It was on the old SC Highway 29. Back then it was on the original Hwy 29. Parts of it are still there but renamed Old Charlotte Rd. The old road bed, across from the current Walmart, can still be seen but maybe not for much longer as they are building a new Spartanburg High School and campus there.






Currently the house that had the bar and pool room is still there along with the round drive to the cabins behind it. It's on the new East Main Street, SC Highway 29 across from the eastside Walmart. The cabins are gone. I don't know how much longer the house will be there as it has burned and they are building the new Spartanburg High School and campus there. But here are the photos we got late last year.










I don't know if Walt and Madge divorced. His death certificate and obituary indicates they were still married but I don't think they were still living together. ?  Walt Harris died 5/20/1951 in Spartanburg, Spartanburg County, SC of "cardiac decompensation". Cardiac Decompensation is the inability of the heart to maintain adequate circulation. Characterized by difficulty breathing, leg/feet swelling, fatigue. The condition is caused by severe congestion of multiple organs by fluid that is inadequately circulated by the failing heart.

Madge Harris then married Henry Lee Lackey (DOB 3/29/1898 in Bryson City, Swain County, NC; DOD 6/12/1964 in Union, Union County, SC).

Brett And Dogs

Our grandnieces and grandnephews have dogs and are very aware of dog rescue. Brett seems to be very drawn to dogs and dog rescue. I think he gets that from his mother, Jenny, and his maternal grandmother, my sister, Elaine. Elaine has her own dog rescue organization. I'm very proud of them learning these lessons. It teaches empathy, compassion, kindness, gentleness, commitment.

Here is a boy and his dog, a rescued Pomeranian.

In the largest photo, they had visited a local shelter. The smaller photos are Brett with their two dogs, both rescues. Unfortunately, the German Shepherd didn't survive as he had a massive mega-esphagus. Despite their best care, he only lasted a few months. But at least they were good months, full of love and care.
