He is buried at Bethel UMC, Columbia, S.C., off Forest Drive (off Gamewell Dr). Tall white marker for him and his wife. The church was est'l. in 1832. According to the church secretary, Gwen Barnes, there are other graves in the area, but they are unmarked, so don't know if there are any more Harrisons there or not. His tombstone lists 1881 as death date; my previous information was from Philip Harrison was 1888.
