Stoney Fork Tombstones, NC: Harris

In honor of the GeneaBloggers community I have been trying to get on board with all the fun topics but I missed Tombstone Tuesday; however, everyday on this blog is Tombstone Tuesday! I could fit into Wordless Wednesday but I am afraid that I did make comments.  I did get the logo on the side!! 

Today's post covers the tombstones with the surname of Harris at Stoney Fork:

Cora H. Davis wife of W.S. Harris
1895 to 1931

William Sidney Harris
1888 to 1973

B.J. Harris born April 8, 1857 died Nov. 1, 1913

Mary Harris Jan 25?, 1854 to 1947?

Alexander Harris 1828 to 1931
his wife
Martha E. Smith 1863 to 1940

Oliver Parsons Harris 1873 to 1947
His wife
Minnie M. Byrd 1882 to 1964

Marker for Ulysses G. Harris
18?? to 1964
We have added other surnames like Byrd, Smith and Davis.  The use of the Parsons name as a middle name could be a family name?
