Possible Photo of J.L. Harris

To the editors of this page, my apologies, I'm new. However, I was looking for background on a photo from my family album project. I came across your reference to J.L. Harris. Within my family album project, I have an 1898 photo of J.L. Harris that was taken in San Fransico, CA at "Johnson 31 Third St. San Francisco." Wondering if this could be one and the same--given the timeline and name? Any input you have would be very valuable to my search.

Dear Jim Woods: Whether or not your 1898 photo of J.L. Harris taken in San Fransico CA is also of Major J. L. Harris of the 2nd regiment Mississippi Cavalry would take further research on your part.

Harris, you are invited to upload the image on to the 2nd Mississippi Cavalry page. Follow wiki image approval steps - which are quite simple, when you are ready.
