Trying to find Harrison

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Patricia Report 20 Feb 2005 20:57

My gr gr grandfather was Ralph Harrison, he was a Master Mariner and I think born in Sunderland between 1930-1940. He married Elizabeth (surname unknown) and had at least 4 children (Alice Maud, John Thomas, Alfred & Isabella). His son John Thomas Harrison was my gr grandfather also born in Sunderland, 1871. I am unable to find any other information about Ralph, any help would be greatly appreciated. Trish
