Re: Harrison's of TN
- Looks like I might have duplicated some info that Barbara responded
with--had it typed up before I read her post. It must be the 'great
minds think alike" theory *smile*
I personally think the Ancestry subscription is worth the money if you
want to use it a lot from home. I got an offer for about half the cost
of the usual USA version and I decided that was finally the time to
join. The next best thing though is to check at your local library and
see if they have it for use there. I understand that some will have it
at the library, but not for use from the home with your library card
because of the additional cost to the library for that access.
I have looked up the Harrison you mentioned in the 1900 census and
find that living 'next door' to Gideon is a William Harrison born July
1842 with children (aged Mary 27, Dan 18, Mirtie 16, Katie 11)in his
household. Also 'next door' is J.W. Harrison, wife and many children
(she had 12 born/12 living--9 with them in 1900). My guess is that
when "rayman P." (your Paul Raymond) went to live with cousins his
parents had both died. Just a guess, but might be worth looking for a
death there in that Alabama county of the 1900 census. I do see that
by 1910 census the J.W. Harrison family is in Seminole Co., Oklahoma.
I think you would find a strong `persons of interest' in the 1870
census for Lawrenceburg Post Office, Lawrence Co., TN listed as D.G.
Harrison 30; Sarah A 30; W.T 5; Daniel M. 3; David L. 7/12; Delilah
White 64. The same family in 1880 census-same county (most are
initials)-D G Harrison 41; wife S A 41; son W T 14; son D M 12; son D
L10; dau. L E 8; dau. E L 6; son C O 4; son J P? 4? ( I had trouble
with that one); Eliza Harrison, mother 60; J.W. Harrison brother, 14.
Good Luck on your search
