HARRISON I am wanting to know if there was ever a person by the name of William Riley Harrison who was most likely born around 1755 who lived in the Richland Co., area. Family information has it that he was married to Hannah Riley the daughter of Miles Riley. It is also rumored that he lived on a farm where the present Columbia, SC is. He and Hannah had the following children: William B. "Billy Buck" Harrison, John Henry Harrison, and Nancy Harrison. William B. Harrison is listed as being born in Spartanburg, SC in 1789 and he married Hannah Perle Taylor daughter of John Taylor and Mary Taylor from Union, SC in 1810. William B. Harrison and Hannah Perle Taylor Harrison were my GGG-grandparents. William B. Harrison served in the War of 1812. If William Riley Harrison really existed then he also was suppose to have served in the Revolutionary War either from Virginia or SC. I have been told that there was one William R. Harrison who served in the Revolutionary War. I have also been told that William Riley Harrison was deceased by 1797 but I have no way of proving that any of this is true. How do you get the land record for the area that was now Columbia, SC (that was previously before Columbia became in existance farm land).  The only William Harrison that is on the 1790 census is the one from Fairfield. Was a part of Fairfield latter Richland?  July 2006 Karen H. Nabours

HUTSON

I am searching for information regarding my 2nd Great Grandfather. His name is Reverend William J. Hutson. He was, as reported to me by a relative, born in Richland Co. SC on September 16, 1819, and died November 10. 1890 in Charleston, SC. I have the names of his descendants, but cannot find his ancestors. If you have any ideas or leads that would help me find his parents, it would be greatly appreciated.  30 June 2004 Phil Hutson

My gggrandfather is William J. Hutson, b. in Richland Co., 9/16/1816 and died 11/10/1870, in Charleston. His parents both died by the time he was 9. At this point he was sent to Charleston, to live with an uncle.According to his obituary he was a minister. I am interested in finding his parents. His wife was Elizabeth J.(Steele?). I have a listing of their children. We obtained this information from Census documents, SC Advocate, and St. James Goose Creek records. Can you help?  30 June 2004 Nannette Hutson
