My grandad James Harris was born in Ouston in ChesterLeStreet, Durham in 1897. I believe that his father was called John and his mother was Mary. He had brothers by the names of Benjamin,David,Reece,Edward,Jack, Thomas, Alfred,Reuben, Paen,and William. He also had a sister called Emily.I would love to hear from anyone connected.
