BLOGGER WILL NOT LET ME TYPE UNDER THE PHOTO BELOW..BAD OLE BLOGGER.
The portrait below is of Thomas B. Wilson Sr and his sister Fannie Wilson. She married a Harris. Now since I am a giant fan of history and I found out that 10 boxes were in the Tennessee State Archives with a intro stating " that they were not certain about the Harris Wilson connection." I knew about the connection and there were lots of unidentified photo therefore, I carried a copy of the lineage for their records and then spent 5 hours looking at everything in each box. First of all the photos were pristine and the staff were so very helpful and kind. I feel like I helped a little and will try to find out more for the file. The intro the file, also indicated they did not know how these files came about. I feel that Cuden Will Harris and Cuden Mary Lou Harris (2 unmarried children of Fannie- see blog post in 2007 dated August 22nd, 23rd and 24th) when Waveland was torn down for an airport runway these files were taken with the Harris siblings to Steven Sanitarium where they spent their finally days. The Steven Sanitarium was also torn down and I feel Cousin Con was still in Georgia and just told whoever was in charge to give the files to the state archives. Then in 1998 the work was completed on this file consisting of 10 boxes. The kitty justice is I feel Honored to help furnish future generation the connections and names of those I can identify.
