I have a Harrison Norris born in 1844, but I have him married to a Eunice Mowery.  Was Eunice married before or after?  I have them with children:  Grant, Catharine, Minerva, Eli, Margaret, Martha, Mary, William, Estella, and Clara.  Harrison's parents were James Norris (1809-1870) and Christina Carnahan (1806-1874).  I do not have anything on James' parents.  Is this the same line?

Yes that is the EXACT line.  Was James from Woodcock Valley?

Where did you find him listed as their child?  I had his mother as Sallie with NO father.

I do not think James was from the Woodcock Valley line of Norris names.  The only record I list for this line is the 1880 census for Brush Creek, Fulton Co., PA.  I do have a note to myself that this information was given to me by another researcher and needed to be confirmed.  I didn't list who gave the info to me (I wasn't so good at documenting when I first started!).  I do list that James was born in Ireland and died in Butler Co., PA.  If he was born in Ireland in 1809, then any chance of being related to my line of Norris' would be slim to none as mine go back into the 1700s in America.  Many of the children I have for James are listed as being born in Allegheny Co., PA.  I have no idea why I have info on this family other than I was probably collecting any and all Norris names and held on to him in case I ever found a connection.  Are you somehow related?  Can you confirm Sallie as his mother?

Carolyn, I was going through obituaries and typing them up for the website, and I found this one:

 

Grant Levi Norris died 11/3/1957 at Lebanon Veteran's Administration Hospital.  He was born 4/17/1888 at Everett, a son of Harrison and Eunice Norris.  He married Rosie Bequeath.  Children include:  George L., Robert James, and Mrs. Paul Smith.  Siblings include:  Clara, Virginia Spencer.  He was a veteran of WW I from 9/18/1917 to 6/11/1919 with Co. C., 305th Engineers.  Burial in Everett Cemetery.

 

This is just my notes from the obituary I found at the Huntingdon County Historical Society.
