                       THE HARRIS FAMILY
 
 

THOMAS HARRIS, son of James HARRIS, who married a Miss BOLEYN
was born 5 January 1743 in Essex County, New Jersey.  He
married Phebe HARRISON 13 October 1763 in Essex County.
Phebe was born 5 October 1744 in Essex County, daughter of
Timothy HARRISON (1720-1788) and Elizabeth MEEKER. Thomas is
listed on the IGI sheets as Stephen Thomas but I don't think
this is correct. Phebe died in 1824 in Martinsburgh, Ohio.

Thomas served principally at sea during the Revolution, on
board of vessels equipped as privateers, bearing letters of
marque and reprisal from the Continental Congress, author-
izing them to harrass and plunder British commerce. He, with
his brothers, George and John, participated in the bloody
battle of Monmouth in 1778.

After the close of the war, Mr. Harris emigrated, in company
with his brothers, George and John, and his sister Abigail,
then the widow of Nathaniel Mitchell, from New Jersey to
Pennsylvania, and settled in Greene County about the year
1787, where he resided until about 1815. He then migrated to
Ohio in company with his son, Thomas Harris, settling in
Morgan Township, Knox County, where he remained the balance
of his life. Thomas died in 1822 and Phebe died in 1824 in
Knox County, Ohio. Both are buried in the old part of the
Presbyterian Cemetery, in Martinsburg, Knox County, Ohio.

On July 20, 1988 the Hetuck Chapter, Daughters of the
American Revolution, conducted a ceremony dedicating a marker
honoring Thomas Harris 1743-1822, a soldier of the American
Revolution.  The service took place at Martinsburg, Ohio, and
was conducted by Mrs. Paul Pound, regent of the Hetuck
Chapter.  The color guard was from the American Legion Post
85 with Commander Harold Kenny, George Tuttle, Paul Hester,
and Esther Fraizer.

"The invocation and benediction were given by Mrs. John
Judge,Hetuck Chapter Chaplain. Mrs. Hayward Dick, vice
regent, led the Pledge of a Allegiance and the American's
Creed. Mrs.  Walter Seidel, regent of the Granville Chapter,
DAR, led the national anthem and "Faith of Our Fathers".

"Al R. Rinehard dedicated the marker with an expression of
gratitude to Harris and all patriots of the War of 1776 for
their valor and courage in fighting to fulfill their dream of
freedom for Americans. Mrs. Albert Bradbury, OSDAR historian,
presented a brief history on the life and service of Harris.
Principal speaker Dr. John J. Evans of Athens and Martinsburg
spoke about the history of the area and of his relationship
to the Harris family.

"Ruth Todd, DAR member from the Mount Lookout Chapter in
Golden, Colorado, is a descendant of Harris and is
responsible for buying and placing the new marker at his
grave." Many descendants of Thomas Harris attended the
ceremony. (Newark, (Ohio) Advocate, 27 July 1988)

born 12 October 1765 in Essex County, New Jersey.  He married
Abigail  Husted?  in New Jersey, about 1796, and some years
afterward emigrated to the wilds of Ohio, settling near
Eaton, Preble County, where he resided for many years, and
where he reared a large family. When last heard from, he was
in his eighty-ninth year, and living in Iowa. There has been
diligent search, and no pains have been spared, to trace out
and find his descendants, but without avail.

General St. Clair's army who marched against the Indian
villages on the Miami, and was killed in the battle at the
St. Clair defeat in what is now Drake County, in the western
part of the State of Ohio, where in all probability he lies

JACOB JEWELL, son of Stephan JEWELL and Elizabeth MARTIN was
born 15 Sept 1836. He married 22 Dec 1866 Caroline BROTHERS
of Licking County, Ohio. He was raised on a farm, educated at
Cardington grade school and Martinsburgh academy, and learned
the trade of carpenter and builder. He taught school for
several terms, but when the War between the States broke out,
he enlisted at Martinsburgh, Ohio 3 June 1862. He was in
Company C, Eighty-fifth Regiment Ohio Volunteers. He was a
prisoner-of-war prison guard at Camp Chase, Ohio. He enlisted
a second time, as a private in the Eighty-seventh Regiment,
Ohio Infantry Volunteers. He was engaged in a short fight
against the Rebels on the 12th of February, 1863, in the town
of Franklin, Tennessee. He took an active part in the
Talahama campaign, which was concluded by the great battle of
Chickamauga. Mr Jewell was a eye-witness to the commander's
great error, that of pulling his lines in two, thereby
partially losing the day. The great General Thomas, with an
army fighting with loyalty unsurpassed, and no other action,
saved the day. Here, for heroic duty in checking the enemy as
their lines were being driven back, Gen. Thomas compared them
to a legion of tigers, and their regiment was known after
that as Opdyke's Tigers, a name that the men were always
proud of. On the third of May, Mr. Jewell's regiment started
on the Atlanta Campaign, Mr. Jewell being in the Third
Brigade, Second Division, Fourth Army Corps. They were in
front during all the campaign of four months, and being under
fire nearly every day.
 

                      THE HARRIS FAMILY
 

Mr. Jewell's regiment being left with Gen. Thomas, returned
to Nashville, Tennessee, fighting the desperate battle of
Franklin, in which the loss was greater than in any other
battle in modern times. At the Carter House, where the rebels
broke the Union line, the 3rd Brigade was rushed in and
enlisted and established the line, a desperate piece of work
it was, so history truly states.

December 15 and 16, 1864, they took an active part in the
Battle of Nashville where the Rebel army was completely
destroyed, practically ending the war in the West. Early in
January, 1865, they made their way towards Richmond,
Virginia, to close in on Lee's army. Before they arrived
there, however, Gen. Lee had given his sword to Gen. Grant.
They all knew that the great conflict was ended and they
should be once more be permitted to see home and friends.

He was mustered out of the United States Service and returned
to Columbus, Ohio, by way of New Orleans and Cairo, where on
19 October, 1865, he was paid and received his discharge.

He spent the winter of 1865 and 1866, at his old home near
Martinsburgh, Knox County, Ohio. Early in the Spring of 1866,
he went to Warrensburg, Missouri, to visit the widow of his
brother John J. Jewell, who lost his life in battle near that
town. From there he went to his brother's, A.J. Jewell, at
Oskalossa, Iowa. After his marriage in Ohio, he went, in
March, 1867, to Holden, Missouri. In 1868, he moved to Greely
County, Kansas, and engaged in real estate and loan business.
Jacob and his wife, Caroline had one son.

      In the battle front they stood.
        When the fiercest charge was made;
      But before they reached the lines,
        They were beaten back and prisoners made.

      Then to Richmond prison marched away,
        There for six long weary months he lay,
      Thinking of wife and children far away,
        And of his home that once was bright and gay.

      From there to Andersonville he was conveyed,
        And there, with starvation and disease,
      For six more weary months in prison pens he laid,
        Waiting until death released him,
      And he from earth was called away.

      His wife and children, how they missed him,
        As they viewed his vacant chair,
      At her fireside sad and lonely,
        Often does her bosom swell,
      At rememberance of the story
        How her noble husband fell.

      He sleeps to-day, O martyred hero!
        In his green and narrow bed,
      Dirges from the pine and cypress
        Mingled with the tears they shed.
