William and Mary Harrison Family

Post by wharrison » Mon Dec 22, 2014 3:36 pm

I am looking for information about my earliest Canadian Harrison ancestors.

The best information that I have, and which I believe to be reasonably accurate, is that William and Mary Harrison were both born in England around 1801and came to Canada sometime around 1836. In 1837 they lived in Whitby Township and in 1853 they lived in Reach Township. They had at least 8 children:
• Jordan, 1835-1905, married Mary Jaynes and Robyn Silver
• Thomas, born 1836, married Jane Town
• Isaac, 1837 – after 1901, married Elizabeth Karr
• Mary Jane, 1838-1896, married Silas Luke
• Ann, born 1841, married Moses Karr
• George, 1843-1922, married Mary Hewitt
• Elizabeth, 1854-1928
• James, born 1857

If you have any information about this family, in particular William Harrison's ancestry, please contact me at wdharrison@yahoo.com
