      NOTE: Who the widow was before marriage I do not not know, but she later married Thos. Osburn, died 1726-7. In 1727 or 1728 she lastly married Absalom Thorne, died 1735. She died 1761; her will proved March 25, 1761, Charles County, Maryland. I suspect she was not the mother of Diana, daughter of this testator, who married Price. This testator's daughter, Violetta Harrison (by his widow Elizabeth), married, first, William Hoskins, died 1727, and left two daughters, Eliz. and Mary Hoskins.
      Violetta (Harrison) Hoskins later married Col Robert Hanson (who had previously been married) and had issue. Her daughter Eliz. Hoskins married Walter Hanson and had issue, and her daughter Mary Hoskins first married Mr. Jno. Cunninghame and had issue, and later she married Mungo Muschett.
      Hence this testator's daughter, Violetta Harrison had children by Col. Robert Hanson and she had grandchildren by Walter Hanson and Eliza. Hoskins, and therefore this testator's widow, Eliz., had grandchildren by Col. Robt. Hanson and she had great grandchildren by Walter Hanson, who was
      a nephew of Col. Robert Hanson.-R. T. Semmes.
