My GGG Grandfather is Kimbrell Harris. He married a Prudence James in March of 1838. I have found plenty of info on her family. I am looking for more info on Kimbrell. I know that there were several families of Harris' in Smith County during this time. I am trying to determine who Kimbrell's parents were (his parents were born in NC according to census of 1850 Phillips Co, ARK). I am leaning towards John, Because Kimbrell named his first son John Alexander (Alexander being his father in laws name, just haven't found any hard evidence to prove it. Kimbrell had a brother George, a sister Fannie, and a sister Martha or Margaret. Kimbrell along with Prudence's family and Martha moved to Phillips County, AR. Prudence and her parents died while there and are buried somewhere in Phillips County. Kimbrell remarried and moved to White County where he died in April 1866. If anyone has any info to get me pointed in the right direction, Please let me know. It would be much appreciated.
