President Benjamin Harrison

Note that I have arrived at the conclusion that Abigail Hallock must be removed as the wife of Caleb Horton, as there is no evidence they were man and wife, least of all parents of Caleb, Jr. That is the line that is in Ancestors of American Presidents, which I now reject.

However, there is another line of descent from Peter Hallock to President Harrison that appears to be bonafide - and is not in Ancestors of American Presidents. This connection is based on a 1802 letter written by John Cleves Symmes (see his place in the line of descent below), to his daughter, Anna: "My grandmother Cleves' grandfather Halliock lived on the land now owned by Mr. Lehomedieu, still called Halliock's Neck.. The pits that were his cellars are still very visible between Mr. Lehomedieu's house and the mouth of the town-creek in Southold Long Island..." (1992 Addendum to A Hallock Genealogy of 1928, Hallock Family Association, Pg iii.) Note the "grandmother Cleves" is Mary Hallock in generation 4 below, and the grandfather Halliock he is referring to is William Hallock, the probable immigrant Hallock ancestor. This is that line of descent:
 

 
 1   [Peter?] Hallock 1595 - 1651
..  +Unknown First Wife 1600 - 1640

Generation 1 given out of respect to tradition. There is no evidence that a Peter Hallock ever existed, or, if he did, that he was ever in America.

.... 2   William Hallock 1620 - 1684
........  +Margaret [Howell?] 1624 - 1707
........... 3   William Hallock 1667 - 1736
...........  *2nd Wife of William Hallock:
...............  +Mary (___) 1667 - 1752
.................. 4   Mary Hallock 1697 - 1784
......................  +John Cleves 1686 - 1760
........................ 5   Mary Cleves 1714 - 1746
............................  +Timothy Symmes, Jr. 1714 - 1756
............................... 6   John Cleves Symmes 1742 - 1814
...................................  +Anna Tuthill 1741 - 1776
...................................... 7   Anna Tuthill Symmes 1775 - 1864
..........................................  +William Henry Harrison, President 1773 - 1841
............................................ 8   John Scott Harrison 1804 - 1878
................................................  +Elizabeth Ramsey Irwin 1810 - 1850
................................................... 9   Benjamin Harrison, President 1833 - 1901


Note that his grandfather, President William Henry Harrison, was not a Hallock, as President Benjamin Harrison's Hallock blood-line comes from his grandmother - thus we are related to one Harrison president, but not the other.

Benjamin Harrison, twenty-third President of the US, was great grandson of Benjamin Harrison (1726-1791), Signer of the Declaration of Independence and Governor of Virginia. He was the grandson of William Henry Harrison, ninth President of the United States.
