Surnames: Harries, Harris
I'm looking for any descendents of John HARRIES a minister (probably methodist) who emigrated to US from 1900-1930.

He is supposed to have had only daughters.

Could have gone anywhere. Family suggestions include Canada, Australia, and USA (California, Pennsylvannia and New York State) Take your pick.

I am the great granddaughter of William HARRIES, brother of the above John. Their father's name was Edward HARRIES/HARRIS (variously spelt) and their mother was Elizabeth (nee REES).

Family originated in West Wales. Carmarthenshire (Pembrey, Trimsaran areas) then moved to Swansea for a few years and then on to Pontypridd, Glamorganshire.

I remember my gran telling me that some descendents had contacted her as and had come to visit and to ask about the family.

Any information gratefully received.

Could be. Which Leigh are you? There are three I know of? Are you the son of Thomas and Mona Patricia Hughes?

If so, then yes, we are second cousins.
