 Migration to the North

Sometime during the mid to late 1940's, Jim Harris , Sr. was involved in an altercation with a white man in Tuskegee.  The gentlemen in question, was savagely beaten.  The local Klansmen were  informed of the incident and a "contract" was taken out on his life. In order to save him, The Mt. Nebo Masonic Lodge (Macon County, AL), of which he was a member, assisted him in leaving the state.  He fled to Ohio.   The white man never fully recovered and died a few years later.  This is why the Harris's are now residing in the North.
