Benjamin Harrison married Hannah Churchill in 1669 in Cabin Point, Virginia. He died in the same place.

The tomb of his wife, Hannah Churchill, also formerly at Cabin Point Church only states that she was born Feb. 13, 1651/52, and died Feb. 16, 1698-99. Since the destruction of this old Church at Cabin Point, it is believed that these tombs have been removed to the family burying ground at Brandon. It will be noted, from Benjamin Harrison's will, that he owned a portion of the noted Brandon or Martin's Brandon estate. The remainder was purchased from the English owners, by his son Nathaniel Harrison.

The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, Volume 6, page 236 states that his was moved from Cabin Point Cemetery in Surry County, Virginia to Brandon.
