I am doing a headstone search for a person who lives some distance away. Her information is that one of her ancestors, Rachael Harrison, wf of Ludwick Harrison is buried in Old Hurricane Cemetery. I see several references to this cemetery on the Fayette Co. site, but cannot find in in my cemetery lists, nor can I find its location. Would like specific directions to get there if possible. Thanks. Donna

I have this information:
Lodowick (possible Ludwick) Harrison had a son, D.W. Harrison, b 1838 of Williamson, TN and died in Wise Co, TX in 1880 or 87.

Also- David Wesley Harrison b 1865 Vandalia, IL died in OK. Unsure if they are the same or perhaps relatives.

My Harrison line mystery is that of my great grandmother-- Lena Irene Harrison Holmes. Born in Vandaila IL she lived in Wise Co, TX several years-children born there-- until the family moved to Indian Territory about the time of the land runs. We do not know who her parents were.
Lena Harrison always said that Benjamin Harrison and William Henry Harrison were cousins of hers.

I wondered if the person you were searching for would have these families connected to their own--with the Vandalia, IL location in common.
Please pass along my email address
or mailing address of PO Box 106 Hanna, OK 74845
if they are interested in comparing notes.

Thanks so much!

Did you find the Old Hurricane Cemetery or any stones of the Harrison family?
I am making a trip to that area in about a week with the hope of locating the cemetery and the tombstones. I'll photograph anything that I find in Fayette County, and share it with you if you have a need for pictures.

Since I last responded to your query, I have learned that we are related to Rachel and Lodwick Harrison. Their son David is in our line, then daughter Lena Harrison Holmes.

I look forward to hearing what you have found.
