"ANOTHER WHIG OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION GONE"

from The Huntsville Democrat Newspaper, AL...18 January 1840

"Thomas Harrison departed this life on the 4th day of November 1830 at his residence in Coffee County, Tennessee. He lived to be upwards of 80 years of age, and died greatly lamented by an affectionate wife and seven children, and a large number of grand and great grand children.

He was beloved by all his acquaintances and neighbors, and respected as an honest, benevolent man; and by his own industry had been placed in easy circumstances. It was his request of all his sons, that they should remain firm in the Democratic Republican principles, which he in part had fought for, and for the last several years had drawn a small pension from the government of the United States as an evidence of his service.

He was born in England; himself and his brother Richard, came to the United States when orphan boys, and having some knowledge of the British yoke, took up arms and fought bravely to rid this country of it; he joined the North Carolina Militia, under Brigadier General Davidson and was in a great many serious engagements. He died with a full assurance of future bliss.

The Democratic paper at St. Louis, Missouri will please publish the above. The Talladaga paper is requested to do the same."

W. CLINT HARRISON'S OBITUARY .. Montgomery, AL.. Oct 9, 1960

"MR. CLINT" from Montgomery Adventure

"MR. CLINT" -- W. Clint Harrison of Gallion he was -- is low at 80. He was a delightful man, kind and good natured.

He didn't drink, he thrived on solitude, and so for all the years in Montgomery as a legislator and public service commissioner he didn't spend a lot of time in convivial bull sessions. He did spend a lot of time in his Exchange Hotel room and that time was given over to reading the fine print in every bill and every document relating to state government. The extent of his detailed information was perhaps unmatched by any other official of his time. Coupled with this incomparable knowledge of what was written down about government was his recollection of political events and their undisclosed background. He had a lock-jaw memory.

For these reasons, Mr. Clint was a doctor summoned by many governors. Formally or informally, he was relied upon by governors and diverse as Miller, Graves, Dixon and Folsom. When his day was past, he went back to his dairy farm in loneliness. But he went with composure and without bitterness.

A Harrison Who Was A "Regular Jesse James!"

JEFF HARRISON (Charles Jefferson Harrison), born about 1862 near Meridian on the Alabama-Mississippi line, was compared to Jesse James in an account of his trial. An article of May 2, 1917 in the MONTGOMERY (AL) ADVERTISOR describes the trial. Jeff Harrison, brothers Dick and Charley and a few others in the gang, robbed mail cars. Jeff was known as the leader of the band of outlaws for a quarter of a century. The band of outlaws was notorious south of the Mason-Dixon Line. He was convicted twice, the second time for mail car robbery in Greenville and sentenced to twenty-five years at the Atlanta State Penitentiary. Most of his time as a free man was spent in San Antonio, TX. While in prison he worked in the Duck Mill Detail and invented an attachment for the weaving loom which was put under patent by the government. He had a brother, Hunter P. Harrison who was married to Selia. They lived in Marietta, Georgia. Jeff was granted permission to attend his brother's funeral in June, 1925. He was released from prison later in the year 1925 and returned to San Antonio, Texas.
