Collection Overview

Scope and Content
This large collection of genealogical materials was collected by Shirley (Bales) Harris (1928-1992) and Richard C. Harris (1927-). Mrs. Harris became interested in the history of her family in 1977 while living in Honolulu, Hawaii. The collection is the result of 15 years of gathering information and was used to compile The Chenoweth Family in America: Some Descendants of John Chenoweth B. ca 1682 (Scottsville, KY.: Gerald Printing Service, 1994). The collection was a gift of Mr. Harris in 1994.
