680. Benjamin E.6 HARRIS (Sarah Jane5 HAWKINS, William Wilmot4 HAWKINS Jr., Zadock3 HAWKINS, William Wilmot2 HAWKINS, Zadock1 HAWKINS) was born on 11 Sep 1868 in Eastport, Washington Co., Maine, USA.
married to Florence A. WHITTEMORE. Although we have not uncovered direct evidence
in the Eastport Vital Records that places Florence Whittemore as the first wife
of Benjamin E. Harris, she is placed as his first wife based on evidence provided
in the biography of her son Benjamin Franklin Harris and evidence in the 1930
U.S. Census that Benjamin E. Harris had been married prior to his marriage to
Lucy B. Harris, his wife at the time the 1930 Census was recorded.
Florence A. WHITTEMORE died before 1900. She was born in Milford,
Worcester Co., Massachusetts. Benjamin E. HARRIS and Florence A. WHITTEMORE
had the following children:
He was married to Lucy B.. They appeared in the 1930 U.S. Census in Eastport. Benjamin was 61 years old; Lucy B. was 44. Of interest is the report in that census that Benjamin was 24 years old when first married and Lucy B. was 26 when first married, indicating that Lucy B. was not his first wife. Lucy B. was born on 3 Jun 1885 in Gloucester, Essex Co., Massachusetts.
