  • Notes 
    • Records, of which North Farnham Parrish was originally a part, we learn that Thomasine Harrison deeds a yearling heifer with her increase to son Andrew until he is 17 yeasr old. This is the brother of Robert who is a trustee of his estate. He died in 1729. He married first Mary Rozier, a widow and second Mary Lovell

      the above was a note in the Westmoreland will book, however, this Widow was Mary Williamson, born abt 1645. and 20 years older than Andrew Harrison. Doubt she married this particular Andrew.
