Name: Jeremiah Harrison
Birth: 1707 in Smithtown, Long Island, New York
Death: 1777 in Greene, Tennessee
From Harrison genealogy on the internet:
Will Written 1793; Probated 1798: Greene, TN - 1772
Deeded Land To Nehemiah &Josiah. Moved To Wash
Settlers by the Long Grey Trail mentions only Lydia,
Nehemiah, Josiah, and Jeremiah as certain children. SLGT
states his wife's name was Catherine - maiden name unknown. While there may have been other children, he
admits to only Benjamin who was killed by the Indians Oct 1754 during the French and Indian War and Hester
who married Robert Cravens Jr.
Possible he had another wife before Catherine Adams.
Tunis Hood Book states they were md abt 1744,
Benjamin would have been 10 years old when he fought the Indians. Not likely he waited until age 37 to marry
With brothers John, Daniel, Thomas, Samuel, sons
of Isaiah Harrison and Elizabeth and Abigail was the first to
patent land in Rockingham, Co, VA. Orange VA record. Nov 13, 1740.
The children of Jeremiah (son of Jeremiah of VA)
are listed in the order of his will. The will of Jeremiah Harrison
who raised a large family of 17 known children, 14 of whom were specifically named in his will written 15 Sep
1793. (Lydia, Benjamin and Elizabeth had died by this time). His will was witnessed by George Green, Jr.,
William Wallace and Abel Richardson. It was noted that he signed his Will by his mark and must have either been
blind or too feeble (aged 91 years) to write his name at the time his Will was written, since in other previous
records, both in VA and TN, he signed his name to legal documents in his own handwriting. We feel pretty certain
that the Tunis Hood reference is more accurate on this family than SLGT at this time. Many of this line have
second names of Adams. Original records need to be obtained to verify.
"Harrison Ancestors and Relations"
Among new settlers in the Holston River headwater
sections of Washington Co. VA in 1772 taking up land. By
1781 they are found taking up land in Greene Co. Territory, South of the Ohio (TN).
Will of 1793 filed in Greene Co. TN with Isaiah,
son, Exec, but also Samuel _arored? Wit: George Green,
William Wallace, Abel Richardson. Signed by Jeremiah Harrison.

William Harrison, d. 1712, Prince George Co., wife Rebecca Unknown,
had son William Harrison, know nothing about him,
who had children as follows: 1) Richard Harrison; 2) William Harrison; 3) Henry Harrison; 4) Benjamin Harrison; 5) Thomas
Harrison; (all of them born before 1712). No 1, Richard Harrison married Rebecca Unknown and had the following children:
1) Alexander Harrison, married Frances Hobbs 1774, Sussex; 2) Shadrack Harrison married Elzabeth unknown; 3) Peyton
Harrison; 4) Theodorick Harrison; 5) Ishmael Harrison; 6)Charles Harrison; 7) William Harrison married Ann Unknown, then
Mary Gee; 8)Ann Harrison married Nathaniel Hobbs; 9) Mary Harrison married Paul Hartwell; 10) Elizabeth Harrison married
Richard Bailey; 11) Mason Harrison married John Avriss of Surry; 12) Joanna Harrison married John Gary; 13) Eve Harrison
married John Clark. No 7, William Harrison and Ann had the following children (lived in Sussex County): 1) William Harrison
married Rebecca Underhill; 2) Josiah Harrison married Mary Underhill; 3) Mary Harrison married Nicholas Ogburn; 4) Henry
Harrison married Elizabeth Underhill; 5) Nancy Harrison married Cary Cotton; 6) Rebeckah Harrison married Edmund Stacey;
7) Richard Harrison married Polly Felts; 8) John Harrison born ca 1780 was deaf-mute.
Of the sons of Richard Harrison, Theodorick, Shadrack and Peyton remained
in Prince George Co. Ishmael, Charles and
Alexander lived in Sussex County. Their land was on the borders of Sussex, Surry and Prince George so they moved back and
forth. I cannot find out anything about Shadrack, Peyton, Ishmael and Charles. (All of them born about 1735-45) Does anyone
have a genealogy that goes back to either of these four men? I have more on this family and would be glad to exchange with
anyone researching this line.
Lashley-the Harrisons researching Prince George Co VA to NC are William
Harrison d 1712- children
Benjamin-Thomas-Richard-William,Henry. John Barker took part in the Bacon Rebellion and Benjamin Harrison was the
prosecutor on the charges brought against John and he lost his plantation as a result. John Barker m Leletta Drew,she died and
he married Ann Harrison Marshall-daughter of Benjamin Harrison. Would you know the last name of the wife of Thomas
Lashley. Some have Washington or Edmunds. There is a lot of information on the Barkers but little on the Lashleys. Was Ann
Jordan's father Arthur?
Yes, Ann Jordan's father was Arthur Jordan. Ann's husband was my grrrrrrrrrr
grandfather, Patrick Lashley. Patrick is the son
of Walter Lasly of Cabin Point, Surry, Va. arrived in America in 1648. Would love to exchange information.
Lashley-what son of Patrick1 is your ancestor? The papers passed down
to me has Walter Lashley arriving in the mid 1600's
and he must have had money for his son to marry into the Jordan family. Walter-Patrick1 was in the military at one time with
Arthur's son George Jordan, Walter2 m Hannah Barker,wealthy and political family. Thomas m Jane nothing know about him,
Partick2 m Elizabeth Johnson -Sarah Lashley m John Clark-Littleberry Clark married into the wallace family The Lashleys
went from Va to NC and some to Tenn and West. Would like any information you have. Love any information you have.they
have Walter coming from Scotland to Va. I live in Herndon Va. Jewell
Jewell thank you for responding. Yes you are right, I missed a generation.
The lineage goes exactly as you stated, Walter
(arrived in Virginia 1648) then his son Patrick (b.abt 1654 d. 1711)-m- Anne Jordan, then his son Walter,Sr.(b.abt. 1678 d.
bef. May 21 1751)-m- Hannah Barker (b.bef. 1714 in Surry co. Va d. Sept. 5, 1754 in North Carolina).
Hannah Barker is the daughter of John Barker and Grace Busby.
In our Lashley/Lasley geneaology we have John Lashley the son of Walter
II. John married Rebecca Fletcher and they had a
son William, this William married Naomi Harrison on Feb. 11,1801. John's other son Benjamin married Martha Harrison,
daughter of William Harrison, on Aug. 23, 1779. They owned property in both Northampton, co. and in Brunswick, Va.
Do you know if these Harrisons are related to the Benjamin Harrison,
signer of the declaration?
I was so excited to read that you may have documentation about our first Walter, that he possibly was from Scotland. I have
been trying to document this for along, long time. The name is misspelled in so many documents- Lasly,Lashley,Lasley,Leslie
ect....That it has made tracking him difficult. Could you please write and tell me anymore you know about Walter I or any other
info. Thanks again!

I hope this is helpful. I hope this aligns with what you have. If you have any additional information I would be greatful for it.
Not sure if this is connects to you, but
I have been doing some research on internet
N.C. See listing Josiah Harrison 1756,
also found Holland Harrison m. Durant H.
White Lenoir co. N.C. 1822
Do you have the names of Greenberry Harrison's (b.1750) children?? I
am searching for ancestors of Greenberry Harrison, b.
1810. Thanks, Juanita
I have Greenberry Harrison, son of Reuben Thomas Harrison, and Rhoda
Paris, M. 1805 in Kentucky. I have long searched
for the parents of Honor Poole and Josiah Harrison sr. I would love to hear from others searching this family.
Sarah Harrison, born 9-23-1725, was the daughter of William and Elizabeth
She was married to Mr. Driver. Wm. and Eliz.
Harrison had ten children, and Sarah was one of them. I am trying to find out who the parents of William Harrison were, and
where he was born. He was born 1-12-1703, and died Oct. 1762 in Isle of Wight Co., Va. I would appreciate any
information you might have about the family.
I am trying to find a William and Ann Harrison of 1770 era in Isle of
Wight. Their daughter Crisy married Henry Phillips Jan
17, 1801 in Southampton Co, VA.
Southampton was created from Isle of Wight.
My family legend is that a William Henry Phillips married a Miss Harrison of VA in 1800. The above is as close as I've come.
Hello Harrison Researchers... any of yall know why the search engine
on this site does not work? I was interested in the
Harrisons of southside Virginia and was able to find some info elsewhere but the search engine here gives me zilch, nada,
although I know information must be contained in some of your postings. My main research family is Harwell (aka
Harvell/Harville)... occasionally they were neighbors and had deed transactions with Harrisons... one Shadrack Harwell did
mary Anne Harrison. Don't know if any of yall have ever mapped out the old land patents of the southside Harrisons, it would
prove pretty interesting. There are 29 patents in Surry County, 13 in Prince George, 13 in Brunswick, 5 in Isle of Wight, 2 in
Mecklenburg, 1 in Lunenburg, and 2 "County not noted" but obivious southside Virginia. Often they are adjacent to each other
and must offer a wealth of information and leads. Was wondering how much yall have tapped into that resource and what you
might have found?
Regards... Charles Harvell
Searching for info on Thomas E. Harrison. Died June 1770, need info
on spouse, parents, siblings, children, etc. Have 1
daughter, Anna Nancy, born 1740 died in Virginia. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Have info on descendants, if it will
help any one. Thanks

I have been trying to find the family of John Harrison, b 1760 in the
Isle of Wight, VA area. He married a Nancy Jordan and
ended up in the Caswell Co. NC area for several generations. They had a son, James J. Harrison b 2/1/1789. Do you have a
list of children/descendants that may connect? You can email me at Nistisus@AOL.com
I forget if I've already told you this, but Thomas Harrison wrote his will in 1789 in Caswell County, NC.
I still don't know the name of his wife, nor of his parents.
Have you found anything new since you wrote this post?
I am looking for the name of William Harrison's parents. William Harrison
1-12-1703, and died Oct 1762 in Isle of Wight Co., Va. His spouse was Elizabeth, and
their children were Sarah, Mary, Benjamin, William, Ann, Mildred, Elizabeth, Henry, Lucy
and John Henry.

Re: General Harrison-Regicide Council
Posted by: General Harrison-Regicide Coun

In Reply to: General Harrison-Regicide Council by Ann Harrison Robertson
Robert, Further to your e-mail. I have taken my information from family
records passed on to me through my father. To quote
"This file contains best documented, most complete info about our line of the Harrison family as of July 1985.
Thomas 1-2 The regicide
b. 1606 Cheshire m@ 1648 Katherine, d/o Ralph Harrison of Highgate, Middlesex
d. Charing Cross, Oct 13, 1660 (see Pepys Diary)
Had children all of whom evidently died young. (see Ency. Brit 11th Ed. Vol 13, pg 24)..... end of info from that source.
The remainder is passed on, again through family, but from different source.
"According to the records, the first Richard had a son named Thomas.That
Thomas Harrison as shown above was a son of the
first Richard is not definitely known.There is a strong possiblity that he was the son of Richard. At least he was a member of the
same family of Harrisons. He lived in West Kirby, the same village in which they lived. That an ancestor was a regicide, which
the General was, is a tradition in the family, handed down from one generation to another. The Harrisons who deny any
conncection with the General may be influenced by an unnecessary aversation from the word regicide. He was an hoourable
and able man.
Although a poor boy, he received a good education, probably at Oxford which was not too far distant. He was studying law at
the Inns of Court, London, when the Civil War broke out in 1742 (1642?) Already he had practiced law as a barrister at
Westminster Hall. He was one of a group of students who at once joined Essex's Lifeguards to fight on the side of Parliament.
Later he joined the New Model Army, the invincible Ironsides. He won distinction at Marston Moor, Naseby and Wincheste,
and at the siege of Oxford. He became Cromwell's most dependable general, his right arm.
After his election to Parliament he was publicly proclaimed for his services in battle. In November of 1647 before the House of
Commons he denounced Charles First as "a man of blood who should be called to account." Two years later he voted for the
death of the King.
Late in 1648, when Charles was a prisoner of Parliament, Harrison was chosen to convey him from the Isle of Wight to
London. Charles liked the General's lively manner. If they had known each other for a longer time, the King said, Harrison
would have had a better opinion of him.
Under the Protecturate Thomas Harrison belonged to the powerful Council of State. It consisted of 15 men and was with the
Protecter, England's government. At one period the General wwas the President of the Council.
In religion he was a fanatic, holding many curious views which he refused to denouce. The Puritans were in power and of-ten
he was in trouble in a bigoted age. At one point he was arrested and sent to the Towers, only to be released by Cromwell, who
never forgot his services.
"Harrison," the Dictator wrote to a friend, is an honest man and amis
at good things, yet from the impatience of his spirit he will
not await the Lord's leisure but hurries on his own way."
At the Restoration in 1660 , he became a marked man. Charles Second was lenient toward most of those who had condemned
his father, but he showed no clemency toward Thomas Harrison, possibly because he had conveyed Charles Fist to London
shortly before his execution.
He was arrested at his home in Staffordshire, taken to London, jailed in the Tower. A laywer, he defended himself at his trial,
which was held at Newgate Prison, but his effort was fruitless. He was sentenced to death as a traitor.
"I went to Charing Cross to see Major-General Harrison hanged,drawn
and quartered" Samuel Pepys wrote in his famous
"Diary" under date of Oct 13, 1660, "which was done there, he looking as cheerful as any man could in that condition.It is said
the he said that he was sure to come again shortly at the right hand of Christ to judge them that now had judged him; and that
his wife doth expect his coming again."
Thomas Harrison, who had led an eventful life, was 54 years old at the
time of his death.
(For an account of the General's life see the "Dictionary of British Biography. There is a copy in the Newark Library. Also
there are many accounts of him in the British Museum, London)"
Robert, thus ends my account from family records of Thomas Harrison.
Should you find out that he in fact had children and
grandchildren, please do let me know. Regards, Ann

But our SELLERS were in ISLE OF WIGHT till ca 1714?
This was a Large area of land at that time.
So, some kids born in VA by or before this date!
Then, where did we go?
WE owned land here in 1684. (gift of Josiah HARRISON) maybe a dau of his married our SELLERS?
MAYBE we should concentrate on this family, also?
Don't think I found much on JOSIAH HARRISON!
Isle of Wight may have more info that I didn't extract?
Will Add any info on JOSIAH/ISAIAH HARRISON from Isle of Wight, VA, etc.
Thanks, marie, iowa
