This record is found in a bible in the possession of the Rev. W.J. Harrison, Baytown, TX and has been contributed by Professor Hugh B. Johnson of Wilson, NC who reports that the family lived in Wash. Co., GA and may have originated in Tyrrell Co., NC. (From National Geographical society Quarterly).


(Taken from a paper written by Laura Newkirk Merwin of 8900 E. Jefferson #1420, Detroit, MI 48214 that she compiled for her Revolutionary War Ancestor.)

JOSEPH, son of CHARLES, was born in England in 1750 and married SARAH GILES in 1789 in MA. The earliest document of his war record is dated June 28, 1775, and he retired from the service November 1, 1783. He was commissioned a Captain on June 16, 1780. Albany, NY was the place of official commissioning, but he was already on duty at Fort Edward.

On February 2, 1786, he joined the St. Patrick Lodge of Masonry of Johnstown, NY. His name appeared on the lodge rolls until 1791. His life is a mystery to our family from this date until 1801. At some point prior to 1801 he had settled in Detroit, MI as he became a supervisor of the Township of Detroit in that year.

In March of 1802, Joseph Harrison petitioned for a tavern license. When it was renewal time in May, 1803, he declined the offer of the license. This was probably due to the fact that he was made coroner of the county in 1803.

An application to the Senate of March 30, 1803, had been made by Joseph Harrison and others to organize MI into a separate territory. This petition was referred to a special committee headed by Senator Worthington of OH, who reported to the Senate on Nov. 1 of that year. This effort failed . . . but in 1805 the petition was taken by Lewis Cass and the Michigan Territory became a reality.

The records of Zion Lodge #10 in Detroit show that Joseph Harrison had a Masonic burial on February 22, 1804.

Upon the death of her husband, Sarah Giles Harrison took the three minor children to her father’s home in Sandwich, Essex Co., Canada. After a period of five years, the family returned to Detroit to collect the children’s inheritance. By 1810, Sarah married a man by the name of Reynolds. She died in 1841.

All three sons fought in the War of 1812. LEONARD G. HARRISON (1792-1845), THE OLDEST WAS A SERGEANT UNDER Capt. Dequindre and Maj. Witherell. MARINUS HARRISON (1795-1849) was a private in Capt. Cullom’s Company 1813-14. CHARLES (1799-1887) was a sergeant in Capt. Joseph Vance’s Company and later served under Capt. Audrain until Nov. 30, 1815.

The families of the three sons of Joseph Harrison have mostly stayed in the County area until the last two decades. They settled in Detroit, Dearborn, Inkster and Wayne. Most of the earlier generations of the families are buried in the Union Chapel Cemetery in Inkster. Leonard and Marinus worked as laborers on the Fort built in Dearborn. Many purchases and sales of land in the Dearborn area are credited to Leonard and Charles.
Leonard Harrison married MARY HAYNES (HAYES) in 1815 and had seven or eight children. Marinus married HANNAH CHAMBERLAIN IN 1817 AND HAD TWELVE CHILDREN. Charles Harrison married LAURA CHAMBERLAIN in 1823 and had twelve issue.

Joseph Harrison is believed to have had two other children: JAMES who was born in 1790 and died in 1794, and SARAH who was born in 1793 and died in 1795. We have no information where the Harrisons were living at the time of the births and deaths of these latter two children.

Edward Harrison and Son William of Virginia
Quoted from THE VIRGINIA GENEALOGIST, Vol. 16 (1972) p. 226-227

Sarah (Butler) Slaughter Harrison, the mother of Ezekiel Slaughter, was a daughter of Alice Butler of King William County. The name of her first husband is unknown. By him she had a son Ezekiel and a daughter Elizabeth who married Israel Whinfrey.

Her second husband was Edward Harrison of Henrico County who died in 1742. On the first Monday in April 1742 it was ordered “that Sarah Harrison, the Widow and Relict of Edward Harrison, Deceased be summonded to appear at the next Court…to declare whether she will take Administration of the Estate of her said dec’d Husband.” She relinquished her right on 3 May 1742. The inventory of Edward Harrison’s estate was dated 20 July 1742 and recorded in February 1746: “Appraised all the Estate of Edward Harrison both in Richmond Town and on his Plantation at Long Acre.” William Gray was administrator.

On 7 September 1750, William Harrison, orphan of Edward Harrison, chose Israel Winfrey as his guardian. He reached full age shortly thereafter for his will, dated 28 August 1753, described him as “late of the County of Chesterfield but now of Augusta County.” He gave to his mother Sarah Harrison for life 287 acres including the plantation where she lived, “to make of the Compliment out of another Survey thereunto adjoining known by the name of Long Acre.” To his daughter Molley Harrison he gave 187 acres after the death of his mother and including the plantation where she lived and to his wife Elizabeth during her widowhood, he gave “my Plantation at Long Accres with all the land not before lent to my Mother.”

A son was to be “Baptized William” and when his wife and mother died his estate was to go to William and Molly and “if both my children die under age and without issue the estate hereby given them reverts to my said mother and a Negro Tom was loaned to his wife. He mentioned that his half-brother, Ezekiel Slaughter had sold land in King William County to which he had a claim and also mentioned his uncle Samuel Butler and directed that 150 acres in Augusta County purchased from Col. John Buchanan be sold. “My half brother Ezekiel Slaughter and like brother-in-law, Israel Winfrey” were named executors but Winfrey declined to serve. When the will was submitted for proof George Reyner Turner and Mary Jennings, two of the witnesses, questioned “his proper senses” in Court. The inventory of his estate was recorded 22 Sept 1755 and listed Hagar and Tom with a notation they were in dispute and were not valued.

A year before William Harrison died he and his half-brother, Ezekiel took out land grants, both dated 16 November 1752. William received 787 acres in the counties of Chesterfield and Cumberland on the “Head of the lower Manakin Creek, the Head Branches of Swift Creek on both sides of Buckingham Road.” Ezekiel received in the counties of Chesterfield and Cumberland, 400 acres on the “South side of James River on the lower Manakin Creek”.

William Harrison of Chesterfield County, on 18 December 1752 sold 200 acres to John Dorram. The land adjoining Thomas Watkins, John James Dupe, Charles Clark and the said William Harrison. The witnesses were Ezekiel Slaughter Mary Moore and William Dorram.

In the will of Sarah Harrison, dated 22 January 1781, she gave to her grandson Fleming Wooldridge, a tract of 100 acres in Chesterfield County, “it being the tract whereon I now live.” To her grandson Harrison Wooldridge she gave a tract of land in Powhatan County of 187 acres.” This was the total amount of land she received from William Harrison which was to go to his children at her death and it appears that they had either released the land to her or that they were deceased without issue. Sarah Harrison gave to her son Ezekiel Slaughter, one shilling sterling. By 1781, he was living in Halifax County. She mentioned her daughter Elizabeth Winfrey, named her “well beloved Friend William Woodridge” executor, named William Wooldridge’s sons Fleming, Harrison, Edmund and William, and her granddaughter, Polley Wooldridge, “daughter of William Woodridge”. Since the land which came from the Harrisons was given to her Wooldridge grandchildren, it appears that her daughter, Mrs. Wooldridge was a child of Edward Harrison.

It is probable that there was another Slaughter daughter who married Crowley Howlett and died without issue. The will of Crowley Howlett of Chesterfield County, dated 2 November 1750, gave a tract of land and two Negroes to his “friend Ezekiel Slaughter,” together with his ready money, cattle and a bed. He loaned a negro Bob to “my loving Mother Sarah Harrison” during her life and after her decease he was to return to Ezekiel Slaughter.
