Surnames: Harrison, Bottoms, Crain
Trying to find information on the family of Benjamin HARRISON and Elizabeth CRAIN. Benjamin was the son of James Harrison and Lydia Bottoms. Trying to find the family in 1870. In 1860 they were in Laurel Co, KY, while in 1880, they were in Newton Co, MO. Does anyone have a death record for Benjamin or Elizabeth? They may have died in Goodman, MO. Am also searching for a record of their marriage which may have ocured in Cocke Co, TN about 1836. Thanks for any help.
