Beth- Probably also Charles Harrison as there were at least two adult Charles Harrisons there in 1800. Go to the tax (tithing lists at: http://freepages.misc.rootsweb.com/~vataxlists/Brunswick/1798Personal/
then look at pages 16, 17 and 18 for the various Harrisons.
Incidnetally, I am pretty sure these Harrisons are all descndants of the ones in Isle Of Wight, Surry, Southampton and Charles City and Prince George Counties, Virginia. In researching my Phillips genealogy in that area I kept running across them and Phillips and Harrisons intermarried, witnessed each others deeds and in 1600's David Phillips and Benjamin Harrison were in same household in Soutwarke parish of Surry Co for two years. After that, Benj. was the tithing census taker and David was still listed but not with Benj. The Harrisons in Surry, Prince George etc. were forerunners of the Harrison Presidents.
My oldest known ancestor, Joseph Phillips died in Brunswick Co. in 1777.
