Would like to exchange information.

Happy New Year. Good to hear from you. I am actually tracing Mary's line - Harris. I have her documented with DNA, but do not have much data on her immediate McCollum family.

You said son (John) married Rhoda Rosebrough abt 1815. I believe this would be Mary's nephew; Rhoda was born 1794 and lived probably in Lincoln Co. TN.

If Mary's line interests you, please email me:

Indicating she did not remarry.

“This from another researcher:
In my files, I have an Orpha Rosebrough who married David Goodner Oct 24,
1813 in Lincoln County, TN. I have her parents as William born abt 1745 VA and
Margaret Harris b abt 1755 Iredell, NC. I have that William died Oct 10,
1810 in Indiana, and unknown date for Margaret's death, but noted that it was
near Memphis, TN.

David and Orpha moved to Madison County, Al and died there. Their son
married my great grandfather's sister, Martha Crews Williams.

If you wish Margaret's Harris line back to Edward Harris and
Flora Douglas (1600s) in Donegal, Ireland, contact me.
