AUGUST 2015: It is likely that William Henry Harrison BARNEY was named after one of the men running for U. S. President in late 1840 - William Henry Harrison. The 1840 election was held October 30 through December 2, 1840; the "Presidential Oath of Office" was administered on March 4, 1841. [NOTE: William Henry Harrison was a "Whig" party member, the last U.S. President born as a British citizen, the first U.S. President to die in office, and the oldest elected U.S. President to take office until Ronald Reagan in 1981.]

The President of the United States in 1840 was William Henry Harrison. I'm glad to know about you, grandfather, and wonder if you were named after the President, as others of your generation were.
