Thomas Harrison of Euhaw

I am interested in any information concerning the ancestry and descendants of a Thomas Harrison, planter of Prince William
Parish, Granville Co., SC. His home was probably in the vicinity of present-day Grahamville, Jasper Co, SC. In 1752 this Thomas
was ordained a deacon of the original Euhaw Baptist Church, which was located about 6 miles east of Grahamville on Euhaw
Creek. Thomas’ first wife was a Mary ______, his second wife was Hannah Sealy. According to his 1755 will, Thomas’ children
were Henry, William, Thomas, John, Mikell, and Francis; no daughters were mentioned. One source, “The Beville Family” by
Agnes B.V. Tedcastle published in 1917, suggests that Thomas of Euhaw was the son of William Harrison and Sarah Hawley, but
this was not documented. If correct, Thomas’ ancestry could then be traced back to Burr Harrison (son of Cuthbert) of Northern
Virginia.My interest in Thomas of Euhaw relates to the possibility that I am a descendant of his son Henry. Julian R. Harrison
