  • Notes 
    • 1838-1857; William inherited 80 acres from father James but 'left for parts unknown'. His share went to Elizabeth, Moses, James, Samuel, 7 of Elijah's heirs and Mary (James, Sr.'s wife).

      In Berkeley Springs, WVA Land Tax Book of 1820 is found, if reading is correct, that after 1833, heirs appear after James.

      By 1841 a William is listed (dec'd or deed of Indiana, 80 acres on or near Potomac);
      1844, William is listed again, William, Indiana, 80 acres
      1846, lists William of James (Iowa) 80 acres on the Potomac every year through 1850, William is listed (Iowa) 80 acres on the Potomac.

      Reference: Chancery Orders in the County Clerk's office, 1838-1857:

      Administration papers granted Christian Courtney. State that William Harmison (of James) is now dead and left no chidren." The 80 acres go to his brothers and sisters. They are Elizabeth Miller, wife of Jacob Miller (Little), Brothers, Moses , James, Samuel and Elijah's heirs and Mary. "Samuel who is a non-resident of this state."

      Premise: William Harmison, father of John Harmison who wed Catherine Bohrer and also, father of William Harmison who wed Catherine Lowry.
