Subject: [UPPER-CANADA] Samuel A. HARRISON--does anyone know his family?
Date: Fri, 20 Jun 2008 20:46:25 EDT
Samuel A. HARRISON was born 10 March, 1821 according to his age and date of
death on his tombstone. He was born in England. His wife, Susan BRIGHTON, was
born in St. Andrews, Suffolk, England in 1823 to John and Sophia EDWARDS
BRIGHTON.. I don't know if Samuel was also from Suffolk, England or not.
The BRIGHTONS came to Ontario, Canada in 1835. Susan and Samuel HARRISON met
and married in the Waterloo/Berlin area of Ontario, Canada in 1842. I
checked the early assessment lists in Kitchener on a trip there in 2000 and found
no HARRISON families. He may have been from Hamilton or Buffalo, New York. I
haven't found him on a New York passenger list or any other US city and there
are very few for Canada that early. Samuel and Susan went to Buffalo, New
York later in 1842 and Samuel joined the US Army for 5 years. Later settled in
Brown Co., Wisconsin. Samuel enlisted again for the Civil War and died in 1863.
Their children may have been named after relatives so I will list their
I will greatly appreciate any assistance anyone can provide. My hope is
someone can fit Samuel into their Harrison family as I know none of his family
members. Thank you very much.
