Research Notes

Daughter of Ben HARRISON and ANNE CARTER. According to our family genealogical history Benjamin Harrison (IV) of Berkley likely had a daughter that is not commonly documented (that is the problem) named Sarah (seems logical since the name is common in the line). This is likely due to the fact that she married a Loyalist and moved to Canada (Stony Creek). She married an endured man from the estate named Korman and the pair became revolutionary loyalists and moved north to the Burlington (Ontario) area. Korman (or Corman) is a direct line grandparent. Sarah was the youngest of 13 children of Benjamin Harrison IV and Ann Carter Her brother, Benjamin Harrison V, was a signer of the Declaration of Independence She was the aunt of U.S.A. President William Henry Harrison.

Unsupported information, no reputable researcher has found this to be true. A very thorough search for the children of Benjamin Harrison and Anne Carter was done in support of the article Spared by Lightning: The Story of Lucy (Harrison) Randolph Necks and no daughter of this name was found.

In the past 3 years, no conclusive evidence has been presented to leave the parents. In fact, more sources at Wikipedia have proven that there were only 11 children and Sarah is not named. I would like to remove the parents to improve the accuracy of Wikitree and this profile.

This person is NOT the daughter of Benjamin Harrison IV (1693 – July 12, 1745) per many, many sources listed at his Wikipedia page

Per FindAGrave, her name was Sarah.
