I have been trying to research my family, but so far have had no real luck finding them. It seems that they just appeared about 1900. I am hoping that someone might have come across them in their research.
Walter Thomas Harrison was born around April 1872 in Loudoun County. He married Lily Lee Reeves 18 Dec 1889. She was born about Dec 1873, also in Loudoun County. They lived in Loudoun County, and supposedly farmed in the area. Their 9 children were all born in Loudoun County. My problem is finding Walter and Lily's parents. I can't find any information on them prior to 1900.
Family stories claim that Lily was an American Indian, but I can find no information to back this up. This is what my grandfather, Lily's and Walter's son, told me all my life.
If anyone has run across these Harrison's please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
