New York, USA
Was probably born in Herkimer County, as that is where he parents were from.
He was the eldest son of John George and Susan (Wendell) Walrath.
When a young child his parents went by ox wagon from the Herkimer County area to the Cameron area, of Steuben County, New York, where Harrison grew up.
Somewhere along the way he decided that he wished to follow the medical profession. Not known where he did his medical studies, but did become a medical doctor and surgeon.
He went to Winona, Minnesota and surrounding area where he cared for patients.
On 6 December 1872 he married Isabella "Belle" Collins, who was a native of the area. Later Belle went to the Women's College of Medicine in Chicago, Illinois where she also obtained a degree in medicine.
Together they would practice medicine in St. Paul for many years. After Harrison passed away she continued in her profession.
Initially Harrison was buried in a cemetery in St. Paul. However, he had a wealthy brother-in-law, a Mr. Worsham, a Texas rancher, who had visited on many occasion Harrison and Belle while residing in Winona. He was very impressed with the Woodlawn Cemetery, and after the death of Belle, Worsham bought a large area in the cemetery where he had built a crypt for the Walrath's. Soon after its completion their remains were brought to Winona.
Harrison had no children.
