She was married
to JOHN HARRIS SR.. AFTER THEIR MARRIAGE THEY
FIRST MOVED TO CHESTER COUNTY, THENCE TO (OR NEAR TO) THE MOUTH OF CONOY CREEK,
ON THE SUSQUEHANNA, ABOUT THE PRESENT SITE OF BAINBRIDGE, IN LANCASTER COUNTY,
AND FINALLY TO THE PRESENT SITE OF HARRISBURG. AT THIS PLACE WAS BORN, ABOUT
THE YEAR 1726, HIS SON JOHN HARRIS, THE FOUNDER OF HARRISBURG, AND WHO IS SAID
TO HAVE BEEN " THE FIRST WHITE CHILD BORN IN PENNSYLVANIA, WEST OF THE CONEWAGO
ABOUT THE TIME OF THE SETTLEMENT OF JOHN HARRIS AT HARRISBURG, INDIAN TOWNS WERE EXISTING ON THE FLAT NEAR TO SQUIRE WILLS STONE HOUSE, OPPOSITE HARRISBURG, AND AT THE MOUTH OF THE CONEDOGUINNETT AND YELLOW BREECHES CREEKS. THERE HAD BEEN ONE ON THE LOW GROUND ON THE RIVER, ABOUT THE LOWER LINE OF HARRISBURG, AND ANOTHER AT THE MOUTH OF PAXTON CREEK. THESE TWO LAST ARE SUPPOSED TO HAVE BEEN ABANDONED AT THE TIME OF HIS MAKING OF THE SETTLEMENT. THE INDIANS WHO RESIDED IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD, WERE OF THE SIX NATIONS; AND IT IS SAID THAT AT ONE TIME, BY FIRING A GUN, SEVERAL HUNDRED WARRIORS COULD BE ASSEMBLED AT THE PRESENT SITE OF HARRISBURG.
JOHN HARRIS FIXED HIS HAVITATION ON THE BANK OF THE RIVER, BLEOW THE GRAVE YARD.
HE TRADED EXTENSIVELY WITH THE INDIANS, AND HAD CONNECTED WITH HIS HOUSE A LARGE REANGE OF SHEDS, WHICH WERE SOMETIMES LITERALLY FILLED WITH SKINS AND FURS, MOSTLY OBTAINED BY HIM IN TRAFFIC WITH THE INDIANS, AND STORED THERE BY THE INDIAN TRADERS, WHO BROUGHT THEM FROM THE WESTERN COUNTRY. THESE SKINS AND FURS WERE CARRIED, AT AN EARLY DAY, ON PACK HORSES TO PHILADELPHIA. JOHN HARRIS EXPERIENCED MUCH DIFFICULTY AT HIS FIRST SETTLEMENT, AS HIS SUPPLIES COULD NOT BE HAD NEARER THAN PHILADELPHIA, AND HAD THENCE TO BE TRANSPORTED ON PACK HORSES TO HIS PLACE OF RESIDENCE. HIS ATTENTION, HOWEVER, WAS NOT CONFINED TO TRADING WITH THE INDIANS; HE ENGAGED EXTENSIVELY IN AGRICULTURE, AND FROM THE STATMENT OF OLD PARSON ELDER TO WILLIAM MACLAY, " HE WAS THE FIRST PERSON WHO INTRODUCED THE PLOUGH ON THE SUSQUEHANNA."
AN INCIDENT IN HIS LIFE HAS EXCITED CONSIDERABLE INTEREST, AND BEEN THE SUBJECT OF MUCH INQUIRY:
ON ONE OCCASION A BAND OF INDIANS CAME TO HIS HOUSE. SOME, OR MOST OF THEM, WERE INTOXICATED. THEY ASKED FOR LUM (RUM) , AS THE MODERN DAY WHISKEY WAS NOT THEN MANUFACTURED IN PENNSYLVANIA. SEEING THEY WERE ALREADY INTOXICATED, HE FEARED MISCHIEF, AND REFUSED. THEY BECAME ENRAGED, AND SEIZED AND TIED HIM TO THE MULBERRY TREE TO BURN HIM. WHILST THEY WERE PROCEEDING TO EXECUTE THEIR PURPOSE, HE WAS RELEASED, AFTER A STRUGGLE, BY OTHER INDIANS OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD, WHO GENERALLY CAME ACROSS THE RIVER. HOW THE ALARM WAS GIVEN TO THEM, WHETHER BY FIRING A GUN OR OTHERWISE, OR BY WHOM, IS NOT NOW CERTAINLY KNOWN.
IN REMEMBRANCE OF THIS EVENT, HE AFTERWARDS DIRECTED THAT ON HIS DEATH HE SHOULD BE BURIED UNDER THE MULBERRY TREE WHICH HAD BEEN THE SCENE OF THIS ADVENTURE. HE DIED IN 1748.
IT MAY BE CURIOUS NOW TO KNOW THAT JOHN HARRIS WAS ONCE OFFERED, BY THE PENNS, ALL OF THE LAND FROM THE RIVER TO SILVER SPRING, AND EXTENDING ACROSS THE CUMBERLAND VALLEY FROM MOUNTAIN TO MOUNTAIN, FOR 5,000 POUNDS. HE OFFERED 3,000 POUNDS, AND REFUSED TO GIVE MORE. AT HIS DEATH HE OWNED ABOUT 900 ACRES OF LAND, INCLUDING THE PRESENT SITE OF HARRISBURG AND MACLAYSBURG, AND EXTENDING DOWN TO THE UPPER LINE OF FULTON'S PLACE; ALSO 200 ACRES ON THE OPPOSITE SHORE FROM HARRISBURG, NOW OWNED BY MESSRS. HUMMEL AND LEBKICHER, AND INCLUDING THE FERRY AND GEN. SIMPSON'S PLACE BELOW YELLOW BREECHES EXTENDING TO THE SOUTH MOUNTAIN, AND INCLUDING SHRINERS ISLAND; AND 700 OR 800 ACRES AT THE MOUTH OF CONEDOGUINNETT CREEK ON THE UPPER SIDE, WHERE THE OLD INDIAN TOWN HAD ONCE BEEN.
