A HISTORY OF THE PIONEER FAMILIES OF MISSOURI

BY Wm. S. Bryan and Robert Rose

CALLAWAY COUNTY, MISSOURI pages 341-343

The Harrison family, of which there are several members in Callaway County, is one of the most distinguished in America. It sprang from some of the best blood of England, and has given to that country and to America several of their most celebrated characters. John, Benjamin and Thomas Harrison were sons of a family of English nobility and were born in the town of Feuby, Yorkshire. John was born in 169_

And became a great inventor. Among his inventions were a chronometer and gridiron. He also invented the pendulum for clocks, for which the British crown paid him L20, 000. He died in Red Lion Square, London, in 1776. Benjamin Harrison was born in 1694. He had two sons, Benjamin and Robert. The former was the father of Hon. Benjamin Harrison, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, and who was the father of General William Henry Harrison, president of the United States. Robert Harrison was the father of the Hon. Robert Harrison, the great jurist. Thomas, the younger brother of John and Benjamin Harrison, was born in 1695. He married Hannah Morrison, of England, by whom he had six sons - John, Benjamin, Thomas, Jr., Samuel, Daniel and James, all of whom came to America after the death of their parents, and settled in the State of Maryland. When the Revolutionary War began they all enlisted in the American army, and John and Thomas were soon promoted, the former to the rank of Captain and the latter to that of Colonel. The other four brothers were killed and each left families, but of these we have no account. Captain John Harrison married a Miss Malone, of Maryland, and settled in Botetourt Co., Virginia. He had six sons - Thomas, Samuel, John, Benjamin, Daniel and James. Colonel Thomas Harrison never married. He was a shrewd businessman and made a great deal of money while in the army, most of which he invested in lands in the Valley of Virginia, and at his death he left his property to his nephew, Thomas, son of Captain John Harrison. The nephew married Margaret Billops, of Virginia, and removed with his parents to South Carolina, but returned to Virginia after their deaths and settled in Montgomery County. He had ten children by his first wife, of whom he raised eight, viz.: Edward, John, Thomas, Samuel, James, Elizabeth, Sarah and Polly. His second wife was ______Crawley, of Virginia, by whom he had: Nancy, Margaret and William D. He was married the third time to Jane Childress, of Virginia, by whom he had: Cynthia, Andrew L., Eliza J. and Benjamin R. In the fall of 1819 he removed with his family to Missouri, and settled on the Booneslick in Callaway County, where he died July 3, 1__0, in his 7_th year. His eldest son, Edward, died in Virginia. His second son, John was born in Boutetourt County, Virginia, October 7, 1791. (See Portrait page 228). He volunteered in the war of 1812, and was promoted to the rank of Major. He was married in 1816, to Mary Crockett, of Virginia, and in 1817, he came to Missouri with his family, consisting of his wife and one child, Thomas. He settled first in Saline County, but removed to Boone in 1819. In 1827 he settled on Harrison's Branch in Callaway County, where he died Feb. 19, 1874. His wife died August 1, 1873. Major Harrison had seven children: Thomas, Crockett, Benjamin F., Samuel, James M., Rebecca and Virginia. Thomas, brother of Major John Harrison, married Sarah Potts, of Virginia, by whom he had: William, John T., Samuel P., Mary, Nancy, Margaret and Lucy. He settled on Harrison's Branch, in Callaway County, in 1819. In 1832 he went to St. Louis on business, and on his return died of cholera, at St. Charles, on the 8th day of

June, in the 42nd year of his age. In the early days, Mr. Harrison belonged to the Regulators of Callaway County, and when the Indians, who sometimes passed through the county on their way to Washington City, would steal anything, or commit other depredations, the Regulators would catch them and whip them. One day an old Indian set the woods on fire, and Mr. Harrison caught him and whipped him, and then took his gun lock off and kept it, so he could not shoot anyone for revenge. Judge James Harrison came to Missouri with his brother, Major John Harrison, in 1817 and settled with him in Saline County. In 1819 he removed to Boone County, where, in 1821, he married Rebecca Crockett. In 1830 he settled in Audrain County, and the following year he was appointed presiding Judge of the County Court, by Gov. Boggs, but resigned the office soon after. He was Justice of the Peace for a number of years, and was elected to the Legislature three times. He died in 1875, three days before his 80th birthday. He had twelve children: Thomas C., John, James, William, Margaret R., Jane, Mary A., Nancy, Sarah, Virginia and Lucy. Samuel, brother of Major John Harrison, left Virginia for the west in 1819, and was never heard of again. He was doubtless robbed and murdered, as the route between the East and West was infested with robbers at various places, at that time. Elizabeth and Sarah Harrison married and lived in Virginia. Polly married and settled in Wisconsin. Margaret married Charles McIntire, of Audrain County. William D. Harrison was married first to Mary E. Bourn, and after her death he married her sister Effie. He lived in Audrain County. Cynthia married Alfred Kibbe, of Texas. Eliza J. married Jeptha Yates, of Callaway County, and died September 21, 1873. Andrew l. and Benjamin R. are bachelors and live in Callaway County. James Harrison, son of Captain John Harrison, of the revolutionary War, married Louisa Duncan, of South Carolina, and settled in Washington County, Missouri, in 1819. John and Daniel, his brothers, married and settled in Alabama and Samuel and Benjamin married and settled in Mississippi.
