Ananias and Elizabeth Harrison


Submitted by Margaret Kepler March 30, 2009


I'm a descendant of Capitola Lenior Harrison born in Dayton KY.  Great site of Campbell Co genealogy.  It's rumored that Ananias Harrison, her father, who also seems to go by Harry was a direct descendant of the Harrison Presidents, but I can't figure out who his parents are to track it back further.  Ananias Harrison was born about 1826 in New York and died in Dayton.  He is listed in the 1860 Newport Census as a ship carpenter.  In the 1870 Census Ananias is in Dayton listed as a laborer. In the 1880 census Ananias is living in Dayton working in the shipyards.
