I am a direct decendent of the Isaiah Harrison/Elizabeth Whittenburg union and of the Frederick Dewitt/Cynthia Jane Kelley union. James H. Harrison who was married to Rebecka Brooks was beheaded in his sawmill in Greene County 15 June, 1872.

If this is the correct email address, you may write me back for more of what family history I know.

Sincerely,
