Thomas Harrison (1619-1682), a native of Kingston-on-Hull, Durham, England as th
e forebear of the Rockingham Co. Virginia Harrison families. Chapter VII, pp. 77
-78.\Dellman O. Hood, pub 1960, has accepted the results of J. Houston Harrison
's research in this connection as reasonably adequate. p. 449. Several Tunis Hoo
d descendant family members recite a tradition in their respective families to t
he effect that President. Wm Henry Harrison and his grandson President. Benj. Ha
rrison, were descendants of Isaiah Harrison. No reliable evidence confirming suc
h tradition has been found. J. Houston Harrison had heard of the same tradition,
and devoted considerable research in that connection, his findings failed to su
bstantiate the tradition. Those Harrison families were descendants of Harrisons
who settled early in Eastern Virginia, and were known as the James River branch
of Harrisons. It is quite possible, however that they may have been some distant
relationship between them and Rev Thomas Harrison, the probable father of Isaia
h Harrison.\President. Abraham Lincoln however, was a lineal descendant of Isai
ah Harrison, and therefore a kinsman of all Tunis Hood descendants.\See Record
