“Born 2 January 1869 in Merthyr Tydfil, Glamorganshire, South Wales, [Ms. Harris was the] daughter and first born child of Rees Charles Harris and Sarah Davies Harris, who immigrated to the United States about 1869. Rees Harris worked as a coal miner. Four children were born to the couple while they lived in Frostburg—Mollie (1870), Esau (1873), Margaret (1876) and Emrys (1880). Esau Harris later became a medical doctor, and from a description by his mother of Elizabeth Ann’s condition at the time of her death he diagnosed acute appendicitis as the likely cause of death. The family left Frostburg sometime after 1881, headed west, and homesteaded a farm in Colorado.” [quoted from a letter by R. Rhys Harris, dated 10-19-2000]
