Alexander Harrison

Birth: 1798
Kentucky, USA
Death: 1849
Crawford County
Missouri, USA

Alexander Harrison appears to have been born in Kentucky about 1798 (date unverified). He was married twice: to Nancy Moxley in 1835 in Montgomery County, Kentucky, and to Susan D. Covington in 1840 in Crawford County, Missouri. At the time of this memorial being posted, research indicates his parents may have been William H. Harrison and Nancy Ann "Annie" Miller. It is not known for certain where he is buried, but many of his kin are buried at Harrison Cemetery in Crawford County, Missouri. Alexander and Susan Harrison lived in Crawford County, Missouri, where she remained as his widow, raising their children. Alexander Harrison recorded multiple land purchases in Crawford County up until at least Feb 1848, so it is assumed that he died circa 1849 in Crawford County. Susan Harrison is shown as a young widow, age 29, with 2 children on the 1850 Census for Crawford County.
