Luella (Marie) Harris formerly Wiseman - Double check

This is my great grandmother.
1. Michael is the son of Sam F. Harris 
2. Sam is the son of Charles W. Harris 
3. Charles is the son of Marie Wiseman 

She is another family member I learned about only through research.  My brother never mentioned her, I believe he had no information beyond our grandfather Charles.  It appears Charles was never in my father's life to share stories.  Charles left the family very early and married several other times.  I hope to find more information in the future to learn more about her story and family.
