Lucinda Morgan Harris

Sep 27, 1801
Washington County, Virginia
Memphis, Tennessee

Lucinda was born September 27, 1801, and at 18 years old married anti-Latter-day Saint spokesman Mason Morgan in 1819. Morgan was murdered seven years later, and Lucinda married George Harris in 1830. The Harris family was baptized in 1834 and by March 1838 was living in Missouri, where George served on the high council. The date of the marriage between Joseph and Lucinda is uncertain. After marrying Joseph, Lucinda continued to live with George. After the death of Joseph in 1844, Lucinda and George separated before 1853 and she relocated to Memphis, Tennessee at the home of her daughter where she passed away in 1856.
