Thanks for posting this. What does the [-b: 1895] stand for? If it is supposed to be his DoB, that would be too late for his date of birth since his son, WILLIAM EDWIN HARRISON's dates are 03/02/1868 - 12/15/1916.

I believe that EDWARD HARRISON was born in 1832.
(Which would be closer if he was 16 in 1857, and 63 in 1895).
