  • Notes 
    • Walton Harris (1739-95) served in the army and while absent from his home in Georgia it was burned by the British. His wife and children were forced to take refuge in a hay stack. He was born in Brunswick Co., Va.; died in Green Co., Ga. (DAR) Walton Harris was about 21 years old when he married Rebecca Lanier. She was about 16. He moved from Brunswick County, Virginia to the celebrated fisheries on the Yadkin in North Carolina; thence he moved to Wilkes County, Georgia, and settled in that part of the county that was afterward cut off to form a part of Greene County. He lived near the Skull Shoals on the Oconee River in Greene County, GA. He was a captain under General Nathaniel Greene. Captain Harris was made a prisoner at the battle of Augusta. After the war Walton Harris drew lands in Georgia for his services. He was granted 400 acres of land in Wilkes County in 1785. He became a member of the General Assembly of Georgia in 1783. At one time in the Georgia legislature (1803), four of the sons of Walton Harris were serving as representatives of the counties in which they lived.
