    Last week I found another cousin – 3rd cousin Beatrice who is also Abraham HARRISONs great great grand daughter. She is actually a 3rd Half Cousin because we do not share the same great great grandmother. Her gg gmother is Matilda (nee Sairs) Harrison, (1825-1852) where as my gg gmother is Abrahams next wife, Harriet Ann (nee Hodgson) Harrison (1840-1866). Her great grandfather is Richard James Harrison, 2nd son of Abraham and Matilda, and my great grandfather is Edward Harrison, 12th son of Abraham, and 7th of the marriage of Abraham and Harriet. I looked up a few records for Beatrice to help her with her own research and found so many new interesting things, just little things like family names being continued on throughout generations etc. Of note is something about Beatrices great grandmother Rachel, who was Richard James Harrisons wife. Rachels father, was a store sergeant in madras, as was our shared gg grandfather Abraham. They were probably friends and colleagues when their children were young, then Rachel and Richard married! https://harrisonmccrystal.wordpress.com/richard-james-harrison-1845-1901-2/
