About Oscar Harris Neylans

Oscar Harris wrote an autobiography containing information about his grand parents, great grandparents, and siblings. The text was typed in the 1940s. There is only one original. It is a fascinating text about how he and his father and brother, along with all of his other siblings, survived a hurricane in Mississippi, went by wagon to Florida via the Mississippi River and New Orleans. He and his father and brother had malaria. They also helped build a stretch of railroad from Tallahassee to Tampa, where they settled, bought a farm growing produce for hotels and tobacco. Please contact Caroline Shem-Tov or Nancy Neylans for a copy. As of 12/28/2016, it has not yet been typed in HTML completely.
