||Obit., Alexandria Gazette (Alexandria, VA), 2 Apr., 1855:|
Col. Joseph Harris, one of the oldest and most respectable citizens of St. Mary's county, Md., died at the residence of his son, in Charles county, on the 27th ultimo, in the 83rd year of his age. He was appointed clerk of St. Mary's county court in 1794, and held the office for the long period of 49 years, when he tendered his resignation.

||Charles Co., Maryland
||Ellenborough Cemetery, Leonardtown, St. Mary's Co., Maryland
- Of Leonardtown, St. Mary's Co., Maryland, according to Franklin Harris's notebook. The notebook does not give the dates. I assume that the gravestones at ndagrave.com are the same people. When I have certain confirmation, I'll begin to add others of the family. Ellenborough Cemetery is also apparently known as the Harris family cemetery.
See: "Joseph Harris of 'Ellenborough'." Chronicles of St. Mary's 45 (Spring 1997): 189-93.
