Descendants of William Harrison, Born 1757
and Sophia, Born 1769

OUR HARRISON LINEAGE

This Harrison lineage begins with William Harrison (I), who according to the old Harrison Bible, published 1828, was born in 1757-1758, birthplace unknown. His wife Sophia was born in 1769-1770 according to the same source. Her birthplace is likewise unknown, as is her surname. The date of their marriage is not recorded, but presumably was not later than 1795, as their son was born in the following year. Probably they were married somewhat earlier than that, judging by their ages.

Only one son is known, William Harrison (II), born 16 April 1796, according to the Harrison Bible. In the census of 1880, his son Calvin reported that his father was born in Kentucky. There is no reason to doubt this, as it fits well with the other facts we have. This would make the family early settlers in Kentucky, which had only received its first European population in 1774 and just become a state in 1792. However, no William Harrison fitting the description of this family is to be found in the 1810 Kentucky census, so it appears the whole family had moved to Indiana by that date. Again, we see that our family was moving with the frontier. Indiana was still a wild territory then and would only become a state in 1816. William (II) married his wife Elizabeth in October 1815, presumably in Indiana. She was born on 6 October 1798 in Kentucky, her birthplace being attested to in the census of 1860 when she was still living as well as under Calvin's mother's birthplace in 1880. Her maiden name was probably Seaman, judging by the middle name of her youngest son in the Harrison Bible and by the proximity of the same family of John Seaman to our Harrisons in two different places in Indiana in the censuses of 1820 and 1830.

The first child of this union, George P. Harrison, was born 4 April 1816, only six months after the marriage. His middle initial appears to be D. or perhaps B in the Bible, but his marriage record gives P., which could also be accurate. The second son, Reason V. Harrison, whose name is also given as Rezin in the marriage records, was born 19 June 1818. The place of birth of neither is given in censuses, but it must have been Indiana. The third son, Calvin Harrison, was born 17 April 1821 in Indiana as attested to by the censuses of 1850, 1860, 1870, and 1880, and by the fact that his family was in Indiana for both the 1820 and 1830 censuses. The fourth son, Hiram Harrison, was born 1 April 1825, presumably in Indiana. He was followed by a daughter, Manervy Harrison according to the Bible, born 15 March 1828, no doubt in Indiana. Then came a second daughter, Cynthia E. Harrison, whose middle initial is given by a marriage record probably relating to her, born 2 May 1830, in Indiana. Finally there is the fifth son, James, born 15 June 1832, who died as an infant 26 January 1834, and the sixth and last son, William Seaman Harrison, born 8 July 1837 in Missouri, according to the 1860 census. These were all the children of William (II) and Elizabeth Harrison.

This information has enabled us to pinpoint them in the 1820 and 1830 Indiana censuses. In 1820 we find the following information under residents of Sullivan County. We have written in the names of the William Harrison family members shown by the statistics, and also shown nearby Harrison families who could be related as well as the probably closely connected John Seaman family.

From this it will be seen that both Williams were employed in agriculture. An unknown older woman was also living with them. Perhaps she was a sister of William (I) or even his mother or mother-in-law. It is quite striking that William (II) and Elizabeth were living with William's parents, a duty he continued to discharge until their deaths, appar-ently. It will be seen too that John Seaman was evidently of the generation of William (I), being born before 1775, and like him having an adult son living on the farm with him. This John Seaman is perhaps the father of Elizabeth, William (II)'s wife. As for James Harrison, he would seem to be in William (II)'s generation, being one of the two males 16 to 25 listed. Joseph Harrison on the other hand, would seem like John Seaman to be a widower of William (I)'s generation, born before 1775. We could speculate that Joseph and William (I) might have been brothers, but the matter is doubtful without corro-borating evidence. All these persons were listed on the same page in the census.

By 1830 the William Harrison family had moved again, this time up the Wabash River to Williamsport in Warren County, the town being specified in the margin of the census. We find the following three Harrisons in Williamsport, with John Seaman just outside the town in Warren County.

It will be seen from these data that the statistics once again fit perfectly with the information we have about this family. Nimrod Harrison could be one of the males aged 16 to 25 listed under James or Joseph Harrison in the 1820 census. More interestingly, it appears that Mary Harrison was the family head of the same group listed under James Harrison in 1820, as most of the ages fit. The only discrepancy is that the birth date of John Seaman by this census appears to fall in the 1780's. Anyway, the information regarding our main line here is confirmed and made certain; all else is only speculation.

After this the family moved to Lewis County, Missouri, where they were residing by the 1840 census. But when was the move made? Probably William (I) and Sophia were too old to travel, and, as they depended on William (II), the latter would not leave them. William (I) died on 30 September 1832, aged 74 years. Sophia died 22 December 1835, aged 65 years. Both are presumably buried in Williamsport, Indiana, as well as their grandchild, James, son of William (II), who died 26 January 1834. After the death of Sophia, with the youngest daughter Cynthia being five, the family was ready to travel. William Seaman Harrison was born, as we have seen in Missouri on 8 July 1837. Thus, in all probability the date of their migration to Lewis County, Missouri was 1836 or early 1837. The route they followed in their migration may have been the Wabash, Ohio and Mississippi Rivers, but it appears more probably that they would have followed the road that led due west from Williamsport across Illinois to almost the very spot they finally settled in in Missouri. Settlement of Northeastern Missouri was underway at this time, so the William (II) Harrison family was no doubt attracted by the greener grass of cheap land yet unplowed.

The family's definitive settlement in Lewis County is first attested by the marriage there of George P. Harrison to Adeline H. Wash on 4 June 1839. In the 1840 census, our family is shown in Lewis County minus George as follows:

It will be seen here that once again the census accurately shows the family, the only disagreements being Elizabeth, who was 41 and therefore past her thirties, and Cynthia, who had just turned 10 in May. We see here that William, Reason, Calvin, and Hiram were all working on the farm. Also we note that they possessed no slaves, a sign that they were not a wealthy family, as Missouri had been a slave state since its admission in 1820, and there were many slaves in Northeastern Missouri.

The 1840's were a quiet time for our Harrison family. Calvin Harrison, the third son, was married on 19 January 1843 in Lewis County to Caroline Sperry by the same minister who had married George and Adaline. Caroline was born in Ohio on 31 March 1822 and moved to Missouri in 1841 according to her death record. According to the census of 1880, both of her parents were also born in Ohio, which would place them there as early pioneers, since Ohio was first settled only in 1788 and only became a state in 1803. The name Sperry was common there, especially in the northeast, where many of the settlers came from Connecticut, where the name was also common. Thus it is pos- sible that a trickle of Yankee blood entered the family through her. A further Harrison marriage also performed by the same minister was that of Druzilla Harrison to James A. Smith on 25 July 1847 in Lewis County. As no other Harrisons were in Lewis County at the time, it is just possible that this Druzilla is identical with Manervy Harrison of the Harrison Bible, about whom no record exists after her inclusion in the census statistics of 1840. However, this remains a mere possibility. On 19 September 1848, Reason V. Harrison, here spelled Rezin, was married to Sarah S. Bourne in Lewis County.

After these happy events, a great disaster decimated the family, as is attested by the Bible records. Apparently, the whole family departed for the California gold rush in 1850, leaving Calvin behind with the small family to mind the farm. The Bible records that George P. Harrison died in California in 1850, when he would have been about 34 years old. No record of him is to be seen in what must have been a very incomplete gold rush census there. Reason V. and Hiram are listed as having died going to California on 3 August and 4 August respectively, apparently successive victims of the hazardous overland route. Other members of the family, even old William (II) and Elizabeth, must have gone too, as no trace of any of them is to be found in Missouri in 1850 except for Calvin.

While the rest were struggling and dying in the rugged wastes of the Far West of the continent, Calvin seems to have been prospering back in Lewis County, where he is recorded in the 48th District in the 1850 census, and in Union Township in the censuses of 1860, 1870, and 1880 near the town on La Grange, presumably at the same locale. In the 1850 census the value of his real estate owned is put at $2,000. In the 1860 census, his real estate had increased to $20,000 plus a personal estate of $4,000. In 1870 the figures were $12,000 worth of real estate and $5,000 worth of personal estate. Though rough estimates are not guaranteed to be accurate, they certainly make it look as if Calvin was a self-made man. Later traditions about the wealth of this family can be traced back with certainty only to him, no farther. Calvin also employed a hired man in 1950, two in 1860, one in 1870 with a female domestic, and two in 1880.

Meanwhile, Calvin's father William (II), 60, died on 8 December 1856, presumably back in Missouri. That the remnants of the family gravitated back to Calvin's farm in Lewis County is shown by the presence there in the 1860 census of his mother Elizabeth and his younger brother William Seaman Harrison. Elizabeth, 66, died on 3 February 1865, no doubt at Calvin's farm; William Seaman disappears. In a happier vein, Cynthia E. Harrison was married in Lewis County on 3 March 1859 to James w. Lyons of neighboring Knox County, Missouri. Twenty eight

was no doubt a bit old for a woman to marry in those days, but there is no reason to doubt that this was Calvin's sister.

Calvin was busy too raising his own family. His eldest son was named James W. Harrison or John R. Harrison, his name being so given differently in the 1860 and 1850 censuses respectively. However, the former is more probably correct, because of other inaccuracies in the 1850 listing. Thus James was born about 1848 and disappears after the 1860 census, perhaps having left home after that, unless he is the James W. Harrison listed in Dickerson Township of Lewis County in the 1900 census living only with a hired man. This James W. Harrison was born in Missouri in November 1849, however, which makes him unlikely to be the same person. The next son, Alexander M. Harrison, seems to have been born about January 1850 and is listed in the 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880, and 1910 censuses in Union Township of Lewis County, Missouri. The third son was Resin V. Harrison, born in March 1852 and named after his ill-starred uncle, who, having been close to Calvin in age, was perhaps Calvin's favorite brother. This Resin was known as Reese, and his name is indeed spelled variously Resin, Rasin, Reece, Rease, and Reese. He is listed in the censuses of 1860,1870, 1880, 1900, and 1910 in Union Township of Lewis County, Missouri, and in 1910 in Salem Township. The fourth son was Marion S. Harrison, born in October 1858. He is listed in the censuses of 1860, 1870, 1880, 1900, and 1910 in Union Township. This Marion died about 1940 a wealthy man. Finally, there was Florence Josephine Harrison born 10 November 1861, died 23 October 1940 in Bremerton, Washington. Florence is said to have had at least two years of "finishing school". Her brother Reese was listed twice in the census of June, 1970, once at home and once in Canton in Lewis County at school. It appears he was a student there at Culver-Stockton College, which had been founded in 1853. It is not unlikely that this is where Florence Harrison attended finishing school as well, as it was near her home and it seems her parents were very protective of her.

Alexander M. Harrison married Hetty C. about 1879. Hetty was born in Missouri in 1854 or 1860 in the 1880 and 1910 censuses respectively. Her parents are described as born in Kentucky in the 1880 census, but in 1910 her father is said to have been born in Missouri and only her mother in Kentucky. Alexander and Hetty had six children, two of whom died young. Three of these children were Ethel, born 1880, and Jesse, born 1894, both girls, and Marion, a son, born 1897. Marion was married to Reva and they had two daughters, Fay and Judy, both of whom are married. Fay has a son. She and her husband are both schoolteachers. Alexander and Hetty also had one other child, who must have left home before the 1910 census. Alexander's farm was owned by him but mortgaged in 1910. He employed hired labor.

Resin V. Harrison married a woman whose name is given variously as Marticia or Marcicia or Maticia C. in sundry censuses. In 1900 her mother, Sally Q. Roberts born in Missouri in March 1829, was also living with them, so it would appear Marticia's maiden name was Roberts. Sally Q. Roberts most likely died between 1900 and 1910. According to the 1910 census, Marticia's father was also born in Missouri. Reese and Marticia were married in 1876-1877 and their eldest son Carl Able Harrison was born in January 1878. He is listed with them through 1900. Their eldest daughter Florence B. Harrison was born in July 1879 and was with them through 1900 as well. In 1910 she was

living near her aunt and namesake Florence Josephine Harrison in Covello Precinct of Columbia County, Washington. She had married Creston C. Sublette, born about 1880. It is believed they had no children. Reese's second son was Benjamin D. Harrison, born January 1884. He married a Rebecca and moved to Washington, where they resided in the state capital, Olympia. He had two sons, Benjamin, Jr. and Robert. Benjamin, Jr. married Peggy and they had two children. Robert was a postmaster in Aberdeen, Washington and did not marry. Rebecca lived to a great age and spent her final days in a rest home. Reese also had a son and daughter who were twins, Luther L. and Nellie F. Harrison, both born July 1890. They were both still at home in 1910. Another child of Reese and Marticia died young. Reese owned his farm in 1910, but it was mortgaged. He is listed as working for his own account.

The fourth son, Marion s. (also given as Marion P.) married Mary L., known as Mame, born in Missouri in September 1861. Their marriage took place some time between 1880 and 1900. They had no children. In 1910 Marion owned his farm free, without mortgage. Family tradition, related by his nephew Joseph McDole, states that he was very wealthy, never worked a day in his life, and wore a clean shirt and tie with a diamond stickpin everyday. His house was reputed to be full of truckloads of antiques. According to his grandniece, Florence Ann Berg Blankinship, who visited his farm with her parents in 1830, he had 80 acres of land by the Mississippi River but had never crossed the river to the Illinois side. As stated above, he died at a ripe age between 1936 and 1940. His wife appears to have enjoyed a long life as well, as she was alive in 1930.

J. must have died between 1860 census and this date. Her daughter Lucy m. Wm. V. DuVall 1876. Any help appreciated. Willing to exchange information.

HH 3.3-104 I am looking for the parentage of Susannah whose maiden name is believed to be Harrison. She was b. 1737, probably VA; d. 1821, Greene Co., OH. She m. David Porter. Children: William, Silas, Sarah, and possibly Nathan and Charles. David and Susannah had grandchildren named Harrison Ross Porter and William Harrison Porter.

I believe that Susannah may be dau. of Charles or John Harrison of Fayette Co., PA in late 1700's. In 1778 in the same county, David Porter and Benjamin Harrison, Jr. had unpatented land on Sandy Creek. In 1792 the widow Susannah and children moved to Fayette Co., KY as did some of the Fayette Co., PA Harrisons. Parents of Benjamin and William Harrison were Lawrence and Catherine Harrison.

All information appreciated. Will pay for postage and photocopies.
