  • Notes 
    • !SOURCE: Email from Miles Harris III (undisclosed at example dot net) to Weldon Whipple, 18 May 2017. Cites attached article "Thomas and Nicholas Harris of Providence, Rhode Island," by Helen Schatvet Ullman, pp. 3, 6 "To be published in The New England Historical and Genealogical Register in 2013 ..."
      Ann is often said to be the daughter of Thomas and Mary (Smith) Hopkins. An article on that Hopkins family lists an Anne as their daughter, but neither Thomas Hopkins' will or Austin's Dictionary confirm that Thomas's daughter Ann married Nicholas Harris. Thomas Hopkins' will, dated 26 April 1711 and proved 19 May 1718, gives the daughter Ann an unspecified amount to be paid by his son Zebedee when she was 21 or married, so she was clearly much too young to be the mother of Nicholas Harris's children. If Nicholas Harris married this Anne Hopkins, it was as a second wife. The fact that the widow Ann declined serving as executrix of his will in 1746 suggests that perhaps she was quite elderly. On the other hand, it may have been because she was not the mother of his children.
