Do you know if there are any Payne's in your family tree. According to family history and the name Williams Henry Harrison, thoughtout our family those 3 names are used. My Father was James Clayborne Payne Jr. He told me some how we were related to the President but he did not know by whom. His Grandfather was William Harrison Payne. I cannot ask him any question I lost him in Feb to cancer. So now I have to go on memories of what I've been told. If you could help me I would greatly appericate.
Thank you

Harry Henry Hooker Harrison b.Oct. 5, 1880

Benjamin Harrison was a Statesman he was the Signer of the Declaration of Independence.Benjamin`s son Wm. H. Harrison was the one credited with having Col. Johnson ride his white horse on the fateful day Oct. 5, 1813 have the mighty Shawnee Kispokothe Sept`s Tecumseh murdered.I read in a book entitled West to Ohio by Alta Heister where Harrison admits to breaking rules of war to have Tecumseh murdered, but justifies it by stating that everyone who truely understands his profession must break a few rules along the way.Wm. H. Harrison is the President of the USA-Born 1773-1841-9th pres. died one month in office March to April 1841- that you are inquiring about.Since Wm. Henry Harrison died there has been a 20 year curse on the USA President Elect.Every 20 years following him now there is the year 2000 curse hanging over the next President Elect.Wm. Henry Harrison`s son was John Scott Harrison his son was Benjamin Harrison the other President of the USA-Born 1833 died 1901,was 23rd Pres.of USA from 1889 to 1893. [Wm. H. Harrison on my mom`s side had Johnson murder Tecumseh on my dad`s side stole the land from all the indiginous tribal people of this land.Once Ohio was stolen the English the French desided to call a truce split the land straight across to the Pacific Ocean.The French stole the north the English stole the land south of the imaginary line. It breaks my heart, as God`s word states,(Tecumseh could quote fluently from the Bible that Rebecca Galloway taught him from),says Thou shalt not steal, kill, or covet thy neighbor or his goods. I hold the Harrison land deeds in one hand in the other I hold our Shawandasse Kispokotha Sacred Peacepipe-warclub that Tecumseh in anger could have crushed Wm. H.`s head, but Tecumseh stayed his hand on the following day when Tecumseh Harrison met they smoked the Ancient Stone peacepipe-warclub, then after they smoked in peace Harrison said to Tecumseh to willingly leave our Ohio land. Tecumseh gave his famous speech," Where today are the Naragansett, the Mohican, the Pokanoket, and many other once powerful tribes of our people? They have vanished before the avarice and the oppression of the white man, as snow before a summer sun.Will we let ourselves be destroyed in our turn without a struggle, give up our homes,our Country bequeathed to us by the Great spirit, the graves of our dead and everything that is dear and sacred to us? I know you will cry with me,Never, Never!-Tecumseh of the Algonkian nation/Shawnee Tribe/Kispoko Sept --Isaiah 58:12 Those from among you Shall build up the old waste places;You shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach,the Restorer of Streets to Dwell In. Tecumseh`s Great great Granddaughter was my Grandma Zania Belle Barker Cross- my dad`s mom.My mom`s mom was Willa Frances Mary Harrison descendant of the Harrison that murdreed him stole the land Tecumseh`s life. I never had the privelege of knowing either one of my Grandma`s but our bloodlines are now joined. Tecumseh predicted that his 7th generation would be regathering the tribes, working on restoration of land. I say yea amen, I am of his 7th generation.

to Jim , I hope this reaches you ,Jim, I'm a novice with this system . According to a Jamaica cousin member of the British Genealogical Society, My greatgrandmother, Virginia Fairfax Harrison was born in the Caribbean, prob. at Jamaica, 28/8/1821,only daughter of Robert Munroe Harrison ( died at KIngston, 1858, aged 90 yrs), Consul General for the US in Jamaica. Virginia was married to Peter Alexander Espeut , of Jamaica Haiti in 1837, and died in childbirth in 1841 ( our cousin Peter is descended from the 2nd wife). I have confirmed Robert Munroe's relationship with Pres. Harrison through, giving details of entries from the American Biographical Library . There are "for pay" links that might take you further. I'd love to know more, whenever you find . I will not have this e-mail hookup after April 12 but will forward a hotmail address as soon as I get it organized. Yours, Jean
