COUSIN FINDING

Editor Ruth Jones is happy to report that she has located a third cousin, Walter Harrison of New York. They share JOEL HARRISON as a GG Grandfather (see Relationship chart, previous page).

These "new found" cousins have been sharing photographs and making plans to meet in the spring of 1982. Below is pictured the family of THOMAS HARRISON, eldest son of JOEL. Thomas (b 3 Nov 1822; d 25 Apr 1899) and his wife Jane __________ (b 3 Dec 1821; d 1 Aug 1904) are buried, Fairview Cemetery, Lindley, Stauben Co., VA. The mother of Thomas Harrison was Alameda Wright, all natives of New Jersey. The children of Thomas and Jane, all born in NY are: John H. b 1846; Thomas A. b 1848; Theodore b 1850; Charles M. b 1851; William J. b 1853; Joel b 1855; Sarah E. b 1857; Emma b 1860; James M. b 1865 and Mary A. b 1869.

The grandfather of Walter Harrison (named above) is Thomas A., seated center, on his mother's left. You may wish to check page 108, Vo1. I No. 1 of HARRISON HERITAGE; there you will find the first cousin of Thomas A. Harrison ..William Henry Harrison, who is the grandfather of Ruth Harrison Jones. The Editor sees a great similarity in the appearance of these two HARRISON COUSINS.

DESCENT FROM SIMON JAMES HARRISON - (cont.)

HARRISONS IN 1860 TENNESSEE CENSUS

I have obtained from Byron Sistler & Assoc. a listing of all Harrison listed in the 1860 TN census. It also includes those misspelled Harison and Harrisson. This index (like their 1950 one) lists each person in the household, their ages, the county, and page number. If, like me, your ancestor was born in TN between 1850 and 1860, this can be a great help. I would be happy to look up information for anyone requesting it if they would please send s.a.s.e. It is some 11 pages long, so I would not reproduce it. Copies could be ordered from Byron Sistler & Associates. 1712 Natchez Trace, Nashville, TN 37212. Submitted by Mona Baugh, 808 S.

JOSEPH HARRISON

(Taken from a paper written by Laura Newkirk Merwin of 8900 E. Jefferson #1420, Detroit, MI 48214 that she compiled for her Revolutionary War Ancestor.)

JOSEPH, son of CHARLES, was born in England in 1750 and married SARAH GILES in 1789 in MA. The earliest document of his war record is dated June 28, 1775, and he retired from the service November 1, 1783. He was commissioned a Captain on June 16, 1780. Albany, NY was the place of official commissioning, but he was already on duty at Fort Edward.

On February 2, 1786, he joined the St. Patrick Lodge of Masonry of Johnstown, NY. His name appeared on the lodge rolls until 1791. His life is a mystery to our family from this date until 1801. At some point prior to 1801 he had settled in Detroit, MI as he became a supervisor of the Township of Detroit in that year.

In March of 1802, Joseph Harrison petitioned for a tavern license. When it was renewal time in May, 1803, he declined the offer of the license. This was probably due to the fact that he was made coroner of the county in 1803.

An application to the Senate of March 30, 1803, had been made by Joseph Harrison and others to organize MI into a separate territory. This petition was referred to a special committee headed by Senator Worthington of OH, who reported to the Senate on Nov. 1 of that year. This effort failed . . . but in 1805 the petition was taken by Lewis Cass and the Michigan Territory became a reality.

The records of Zion Lodge #10 in Detroit show that Joseph Harrison had a Masonic burial on February 22, 1804.

Upon the death of her husband, Sarah Giles Harrison took the three minor children to her father's home in Sandwich, Essex Co., Canada. After a period of five years, the family returned to Detroit to collect the children's inheritance. By 1810, Sarah married a man by the name of Reynolds. She died in 1841.

All three sons fought in the War of 1812. LEONARD G. HARRISON (1792-1845), THE OLDEST WAS A SERGEANT UNDER Capt. Dequindre and Maj. Witherell. MARINUS HARRISON (1795-1849) was a private in Capt. Cullom's Company 1813-14. CHARLES (1799-1887) was a sergeant in Capt. Joseph Vance's Company and later served under Capt. Audrain until Nov. 30, 1815.

The families of the three sons of Joseph Harrison have mostly stayed in the County area until the last two decades. They settled in Detroit, Dearborn, Inkster and Wayne. Most of the earlier generations of the families are buried in the Union Chapel Cemetery in Inkster. Leonard and Marinus worked as laborers on the Fort built in Dearborn. Many purchases and sales of land in the Dearborn area are credited to Leonard and Charles.


HARRISON HERITAGE
p. 202 December 1981

JOSEPH HARRISON, Cont.

Leonard Harrison married MARY HAYNES (HAYES) in 1815 and had seven or eight children. Marinus married HANNAH CHAMBERLAIN IN 1817 AND HAD TWELVE CHILDREN. Charles Harrison married LAURA CHAMBERLAIN in 1823 and had twelve issue.

Joseph Harrison is believed to have had two other children: JAMES who was born in 1790 and died in 1794, and SARAH who was born in 1793 and died in 1795. We have no information where the Harrisons were living at the time of the births and deaths of these latter two children.

CHAPTER I HARRISONS IN ENGLAND


HARRISON HERITAGE
p. 212 December 1981


FAMILY TREE

When first my niece announced
They would do our family tree,
I found myself with time on hand
And curious as could be.

And so I ventured help.
It wouldn't take us long,
We'd do this thing together,
I started with a song!

I was completely innocent,
I surely didn't guess
I'd have to learn geography 
And history and the rest!

Genealogy is intriguing!
Once in it, you are hooked!
Fascinating families,
Their histories are "booked."

You may not know in which book --
But surely it is there.
The history of my forbears
Was found with search and prayer.

A detective story at its best,
It seemed to have no end.
Each find was cause to celebrate
And pushed me on again

And, oh, the people that I met
So many helped me hunt
And cheered me on with aid and words

They must be heaven sent!

I learned to love my forbears
Their children I do cherish
Now I've discovered their births
And how they lived and perished!

You feel a special kinship
To those who paved the way,
Who suffered, built and struggled,
That we might live today.

They sought to build a better world,

I found their dreams, their tasks,
I found their pains, their will to die

For beliefs that long would last.

What courage theirs! To build this land,

It makes me humble be.
And, oh, the joy and fund I have
Uprooting their family tree.

And, so, the roots are dug,
Each rootlet now exposed.
I've gathered genes from all of them;
Our lives are thus composed.

And now my family's increased,
I've learned to love them all!
Close and distant, long deceased, 
This tree will never fall!
