  • Note:
    Mr. Harris' second wife, Mary Hamilton, the mother of his children, was born October 8, 1758, and died in 1801. She was of Scotch Irish parentage, and was a descendant of a family of Scotch Coventers who emigrated to the north of Ireland to escape the persecution to which that sect was subjected to be the Stuarts. She was a relative of Gavin Hamitlon , of Machline, the friend and partner of Robert Burns, the Ayshire ploughman, and of the same family as Alexander Hamilton, who fell in the duel at Weehawken, NJ, in 1804, with Aaron Burr, and whose father emigrated to the island of Nevis, in the West Indies. She was said to have been a woman of great personal beauty and fine personal development, and possessed an extraordinary intellect. It was often said that for any advantage that her family enjoyed over others of the same rank and condition in life, they were indebted to her for it. They were members of the Presbyterian Church of the old style of the strictest kind.
