Bio and Links
Bio Photo The picture is from about 1985

That on my paternal line the paper trail & Y-DNA proves I am directly related to George Harrison born about 1655. This George Harrison was of Westmoreland County, Virginia.

George Harrison was married to Elizabeth Duncan daughter of Peter Duncan of Scotland.

My roots are deep in the Middle Georgia area. Most of my fore fathers moved from the North to the South before the United States was founded.

I am the widower of Linda Chadwick . We have a son Chad Harrison who married Paige Bailey.

Find A Grave is one of my favorite
sites. It has given me a place that I can
remember my loved ones and honor their memory.

RE: Wetherington
Thanks Tex, I do know what you mean about the different spellings as in another of my relatives, there is at least 3 different spellings but I have made them all the same whether they were actually different or not because it is not so confusing. But I do look for any/all spellings when looking in graveyards etc. Thank you for your response.

Tex, just curious, but are you positive the name is spelled W e t h e r i n g t o n or Witherington? Not sure if this is a relative or not and was just looking at your memorial. This is still a possibility. Thank you

I transferred the two you requested and also the other Camps in that same cemetery. It looked like they were all related.

Thank you,

RE: Reuben S. Harrison
Thank you for your reply. It may help to note that additional information appears in the records as follows:

James J Harrison - Enlisted July 19, 1861 at Monroe GA; died Sept 14 1862 at Cramptons Gap, MD. Listed as 4th Corporal. His widow, Elizabeth (no middle initial) Harrison, filed for 'arrearage' pay Jan 12, 1863 and mentioned that she has FOUR children, all minors. She received $121.13

Reuben S Harrison - Enlisted July 18, 1861 Listed as Sergeant on one card. His widow, Huldah (no middle initial) Harrison, filed for arrearage pay Jan 12 1863 and received $66.93 (he had been paid more recently than James and was only due 2 months 4 days pay plus clothing)No children are mentioned.

Both men were granted furlough Nov 1861 to Georgia for 25 days.

Reuben S. Harrison
Hello! I see that you have done a bit of research on the Harrison family from GA. I was wondering if you have run across any mention of Reuben S Harrison or James J Harrison. Both men enlisted in 16th Georgia Infantry Company F which was organized in Walton County GA. They are shown as enlisted on the same date and both were killed at Crampton's Gap (South Mountain) Maryland Sept 14 1862.

If you do not know about the Battle of Cramptons Gap, it preceeded the Battle of Sharpsburg aka Antietam. About 500 Confederate soldiers, including the 16th Georgia under the leadership of Howell Cobb, were sent to defend the advance of about 15,000 Union troops to slow their advance towards Sharpsburg. As you can imagine, they were unsuccessful in defeating the opponent and suffered heavy casualties, but were able to delay the advance long enough to allow more time for Robt E Lee and the ANV to become better organized. Of the 368 members of the 16th GA engaged at South Mountain (Crampton's Gap), fifty-two percent were disabled (wounded, killed, captured, missing)

Do you happen to know how these two men fit into the Harrison lineage? I am researching the 16th GA and have created a virtual cemetery. So far, I have located and linked about 380 memorials of its members but am unable to locate memorials for them. I assume their bodies were either never recovered or were recovered and buried in a mass grave at some time after the Battle of Cramptons Gap. Any info appreciated.

Harrison, James J.- private July 19,1861. Killed at Cramp- ton's Gap, Md. September 14,1862.

Harrison, Reuben S.- private July 19,1861. Killed at Cramp- ton's Gap, Md. September 14,1862.
