In 1812, the Alien "Oath of Allegiance" was signed by Eli Harris and Gilbert Harris who had moved to Washington County from Nova Scotia.

A census said Eli was a cordwainer [shoemaker]

Eli's daughter Eliza Harris married Benjamin Steadman. Their daughter Eunice Ann Steadman was my GGM.

Eli Harris had the children identified in the attached birth records.

Eli drowned off Deer Isle in 1829, presumably while going to check on a land grant in NB.

While I have been able to locate several of his children in US Censuses, I have never been able to identify the mother of Eli's children.

Any help in identifying Eli's wife would be appreciated
