  1. I am descendant of John Stanley Harrison, ( 1809) married to Annie Kipp, lived in Oxford Ontario, had George and William , William married Eleanor Bowman, had my great grandmother, Mary Harrison ,,who married Albert Brown in Brantford Ontario,,
    George married Tamsen Hayball and moved to the States

    I am trying to find connections to other Harrison families in the area, and trace John Stanley if possible,
    if you have any information that you wished to share, I would be most appreciative

    • Hi Andrea,
      It took me a while to look up what info I had on the Harrison family. It does not look like there is a connection.
      From a Harrison History, done by Arnott D. Harrison, typed and poorly copied, ca 1950-1956, he lists Henry Harrison’s father as Thomas Harrison (1777-1824) and Henry’s siblings as Mary Ann (Mrs. Daniel McLoed), William, Eliza (Mrs. John McCollom), Richard, Charles, Johnson and James.
      No John or John Stanley in any of the Harrison family that I have. Thomas Harrison emigrated from England in 1820 and settled on Lot 12, First Concession, Trafalgar twp, Halton County, according to Arnott’s History.
      Sorry I could not be of more help.

  2. Hello,

    I met you briefly on one of your trips to Toledo when you met my mother Renee. I am from my great- grandparents Harold and Dorothy Hackstedde who then had my grandma Martha (Hackstedde) Bollinger who then married my grandpa Gerald Bollinger. Of course my mother Renee is one of their children. Any who I would love to keep you updated, our family has had plenty of new borns the last few years and I myself have gotten married. I am now Symantha Renee Artincia Shearer! No kids for me yet though…I got interested in family history today and I of course stumbled onto your website about a half hour into researching. Let me know if you need any information!

  3. Came across your website while researching Merton, Halton County, where Henry Harrison was the first postmaster from 1852-1859, when he resigned. Other than the grave marker photo, which is about a mile from my house do you know anything else of Henry Harrision?

  4. According to a typewritten “Harrison History”, by Arnott D. Harrison, Henry Harrison’s great grandson: Henry Harrison was one of 8 children of Thomas Harrison of England. Thomas brought his family to Canada about 1820 and settled on Lot 12, First Concession, Trafalgar township, Halton County. Thomas died shortly after arriving and left his wife, Elizabeth, to support the family which she did by teaching school and weaving.
    It is assumed that Henry’s older brother, William, and Henry worked the farm along with hired help. Henry became a wheelwright and had a thriving business in Nelson. He was born in 1810 in Yorkshire, England, and died in Halton County in 1869.
