HH 4.3 - 144 On Page 495 of the June issue of HARRISON HERITAGE appears a listing of the children of Charles Benjamin Harrison who married Sylvia Bass, as Edmund, William, Smith, Arainna, John, Eliza, Susan. No dates of birth are given. In the 1860 census for Williamson Co., IL, John Harrison, Joshua Harrison both b. in TN have moved near Jeremiah. And in the 1870 census, Edmund, James and Smith Harrison have all moved to Saline Co., IL from TN, where Jeremiah was living. These names are too coincidental to not be some relationship to above query. Page 495 shows that the father of Edmund, Smith and John (who was Charles Benj.), had a brother James. Could Jeremiah and Joshua be the children of James?
