Telling the life stories of those who died too soon...lest they be forgotten.
Son of Reuben and Harriet Harrison
Crown Hill Cemetery
Indianapolis, Marion County, Indiana
Benjamin Harrison was the first and only child born to Reuben and Harriet Bright Harrison. He was born in Indianapolis, Marion County, Indiana on November 21, 1869 (based on his age listed in his obituary).
The following information given for the city of Indianapolis Ward #2 for the 1870 Federal Census was based on those living in the household as of June 1, 1870.
In this record I found Benjamin listed as 6 months old living with his father Reuben who was listed as a Lawyer. His mother is not recorded. Upon further research I discovered that she had died in February of that same year.
I then found this published in The Indianapolis Journal later that same year dated Friday, September 16, 1870:
