I am descended from Ellen Harrison's marriage to George Shapland. Her daughter Ellen married Charles Stevens and had a son George Alexander Stevens who was my grandfather.

Have you managed to find out anything about John Wilson Harrison's parents and grandparents?

I am also a descendant of John Wilson Harrison. Prior to Ellen's marriage to George Shapland she gave birth to a boy, Charles Harrison who is my great grandfather.
What I have learnt from a descendant of this family is that John Wilson Harrison' father was John Harrison (1786 to 1860), and his mother was Elizabeth Brown (1788 to 1864). This John's father was George Harrison (b.1740). Nothing on the wife.
Elizabeth Brown's parents were Edward (1753 to 1834). Nothing on the wife. Edwards parents were Edward (1717 to 1797) and Elizabeth Jacob (1722 to 1811). This Edwards father was Richard Brown. Elizabeth Jacobs parents were Edward Jacob and Joanna Dann. I correspond with a relative on the Shapland side of the family who you probably know, Rosemary Lewis of Bath, Somerset, England, who is a descendant of Gertrude Shapland. Hope this helps, but I have a lot of confirming to do yet. regards Bob Harrison

I have quite a few records on the Harrison side of the family in Georgia, Illinois, USA, and British Columbia (where George Shapland died) and Australia.
I have limited information on the "Stevens" side of the family, which I received from my second Cousin once removed in Bath, Somerset, England. (Rosemary Lewis)
Regards Bob Harrison. After checking my Relationship calculator my relationship to George Alexander Stevens is, we are first cousins one time removed.
Regards Bob Harrison
