[25 APR 00] IN SEARCH OF HARRISON'S
I am trying to trace relatives of my Grandfather WILLIAM
HARRISON (and his father WILLIAM ) whose family lived in the BELL GREEN area of Coventry
around the turn of the century, and some until the 1950s.
If anyone has done a family history which traces them back
to HARRISONs in this area, I would be very pleased to hear from them.
Likewise if anyone has elderly relatives still living who
came from this area, particularly Old Church Road, Bell Green etc please have a word to
see if they knew any of the Harrisons.
I know the names of most of the relatives but have few
details of their descendants. Names I know are: Thomas, Albert, Frederick, Leonard,
Joseph, Elizabeth, James, Alexander, Norman and a few others too.
