|Birth: ||Aug., 1833|
|Death: ||Mar. 15, 1912|
Date of birth given here is from the 1900 US Census, and may not be correct. Place of birth was from Harrison's Civil War muster roll entry. Date of death was taken from his Civil War pension index card; his wife applied for a widow's pension on 25 March 1912. Place of death was not listed, however, his residence was given as Republican City, Harlan county, Nebraska as of his hospital discharge dated 23 February 1912 (admitted to veterans' home at Hot Springs, South Dakota on 28 November 1911).
Harrison's muster roll entry lists the following personal information as of 21 August 1862 - Born Muskingum county, Ohio, age 28, married farmer, residing in Wayne county, Illinois; described as 5 feet 11 1/2 inches tall, sandy hair, blue eyes, and light complexion. He joined at Jeffersonville (now Geff) on 21 August 1862 by J. Schultz for a 3 year term. He was mustered in on 18 September 1862 as a Private in Co. K 111th Illinois Infantry at Camp Marshall, Illinois. He was mustered out on 7 June 1865 at Washington, D.C. by Capt. Nelson. He was then mustered in as a member of Co. H, 5th US Veteran Reserve Corp until discharged on 5 July 1865. His admission papers to the veterans' home in Hot Springs, South Dakota in 1911 listed that he was then age 78, gray haired, literate, a farmer by trade, and a Protestant. His ailments at that time included "defective" hearing and mentality, cardiac hypertrophy, left ingurnal hernia, and presbyopia. He was discharged at his own request, possibly to spend his last few days at home.
Harrison's burial here is inferred, through the National Register of Historic Place registration papers. Excerpts from Section 8, Page 5 read: "Early settlers of this area included families from... Illinois,... They also included several Civil War veterans, many of whom are buried in the Pleasant Ridge Cemetery and have early connections with the church. [Footnote 7 - These Civil War veterans included... Harrison Mount (Company K, 111th Illinois Infantry);...]" It is also noted that the distance from his former home (1900 US census) and this cemetery in Glenwood township, Phillips county, Kansas, and his last residence and assumed place of death in Republican, Harlan County, Nebraska (1910 US census) was probably less than 20 miles.
