Tombstone of William Harrison - died 1836

This is the tombstone of William Harrison my great great great grandfather. He is buried in the cemetery at St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Church at present day The Gore Road and Mayfield Road in the City of Brampton.  The age of 55 years on his tombstone suggested a birth year of 1781.  This led to years of confusion between him and his first cousin William Harrison, son of William HARRISON and Elizabeth ALCON who was born in that year.  Since William HARRISON was actually born in 1773 he was really 63 years of age when he died in 1836.
