Re: Nancy Thurston Harrison (1821-1853); James Madison HARRISON (1821-1848):
Posted by: Michael Harrison (ID *****3922) Date: March 23, 2009 at 12:48:57
  of 18908

I am hoping that someone could help me with a lookup with the death certificates of either of my Gggrandparents, James Madison HARRISON or Nancy Bagley THURSTON HARRISON SPENCER.

The problem seems to be that all records indicate:
1848; "<Belleville, St Clair, Illinois>" or "<,,Illinois" for James Madison Harrison and,
12 Jan 1853: Madisonville, St Tammany, Louisiana

I have had noone as yet to verify James' death and buriel in Illinois or for that matter in Louisiana where Nancy is buried. I do have some verbal and written documentation on Nancy's death and buriel (St Tammany Parish, Louisiana).

Please note my new email address:

Any help on James and his siblings being raised by two of his aunts in the Belleville, St Clair, Illinois area would be appreciated. I need the "aunts" married names and of course, James' parents' names. See previous posts for more detail.

Best regards and God be with you,

Mike Harrison Sr
Flower Mound, Tx

PS A preferred spelling on Mamie's maiden name is McMannus and my "adopted" dad Van H Harrison's middle name is "Horton" not Hardin. Also, Benjamin is my Ggrandfather as you can see from the lineage below.

The lineage is as follows:
James Madison HARRISON(1821-1848)
Benjamin HARRISON (1847-1888)
Barney James HARRISON(1888-1973)
Van Horton HARRISON(1915-1993)
Michael Colon HARRISON SR(1946-pres)
