The other William Henry Harrison not president.

His upcoming bday 10 Jun 1842 reminded me to ask if someone else is researching with same name woes. Anyone else running into these commonalities?

as we all know there were to many William Henry Harrison . I also ran into a dead end . My William H. Harrison was from Connecticut his son John Westley Harrison  was a shoemaker in Cayuga County NY birth place listed as CT 1817. Can get no farther than his fathers name and place of  residence . The father was born  in the 1780 's  or 90's , can get no farther than this.

Son of Cosby Berryman Harrison and  M ary Elizabeth (Callaway) Harrison Born June 10, 1842 in Franklin, Howard, Missouri. He married Laura Lundy  March 7, 1866 in Pettis, Missouri.

Died November 8, 1915 in Boonville, Cooper, Missouri

His father is my deadend. Born 1801 in Lexington, Fayette, Kentucky, United States
but his mother traces back and is the reason my great aunt was able to join the DAR. Unfortunately all her research was lost to a workshop/barn fire. I regret not gathering that up when I was in High School.

Good Luck with yours.
