NATHAN HARRIS FAMILY: REUNIONS
For several decades, starting in 1926, descendants of Nathan Harris and Rhoda Lapham gathered to honor their great heritage.  Descendants of Emer and Martin Harris met together until at least 1952.
The Martin Henderson Harris branch of the family started a reunion tradition as early as 1949 which continued through the 1950s.  MHH's descendants through his son Nathan John Harris met for several decades from the 1960s through the 1980s.
Unfortunately, today there is no known regular gathering of descendants of Nathan Harris and Rhoda Lapham.  Any information on past or upcoming Harris reunions would be greatly appreciated.
