I was wondering if you had ever found any information about Richard Harrison in Amelia County Virginia. There is also a "Peter Harrison" who shows up in the early records, but I have not been able to track either of them.

Property in Amelia County was owned by Nathaniel Harrison (1742 - 1782) (son of Benjamin Harrison IV and brother to Benjamin Harrison V.) He willed his property to his children and two of his sons lived in Amelia County until their deaths...Edmund Harrison (1764 - 1826) and Nathaniel Harrison (1770[?] - 1852). They are also in early Amelia Census Records.

I wanted to track Richard and Peter to see if and/or how they are related to the other Harrisons, but have been unable to find any other information.

Thank you for any information you may have.
