Mystery HARRIS, need help

Mystery HARRIS, need help

I am looking for the mysterious B.C. Harris, father of Benjamin Theodore Harris. BC was born in TN abt 1857. He married Martha (unknown maiden name) and they moved/lived in Marion County.

BC fell off of a wagon, was ran over by it and died. This happened in either 1879 or 1880. His son Benjamin T was one year old in the 1880 census and his wife Martha (Marth A) was lised as a widow.

I have ordered the death certificate for Benjamin T and it lists his father as BC and mother as unknown.

Martha's mother is listed on the 1880 census with her, her name is Elizabeth Homes. Martha, her mother, and father were all born in MO.

Any help is GREATLY appreciated.
