Yes, RMH had the following children: Caroline Harrison (married name Sage), Charles PC Harrison, Robert Monroe Harrison Jnr, George Washington Harrison, William Henry Harrison, Edward Augustus Harrison, Elizabeth Virginia Fairfax Harrison (married name Espeut) and Richard Adams Harrison.

RMH Senior (my 3xgreat grandfather) was buried in Fairfax Co, not Halifax Co - the latter appears to be a misreading of the legend on his gravestone and is wrongly recorded by some people.

I can fill you in a lot more about RMH, his wife and children and what I have deduced about his probable parentage and relationship to President William Harrison - also details of his career if you are interested. Please e-mail me at I would be interested in whether you think you are related to RMH and how.
