Thanks for replying to my posting. I am descended from Susannah Pryor Harriman's brother Nicholas Pryor and his wife, Sally Paxton.

I have in my findings that Shadrach Harriman and Susannah Pryor's son John married Nancy Morris and she was a daughter of Joshua Harriman, son of William Morris, Senior. Both the Morris and Harriman family are fascinating families. Shadrack Morris Harriman, a grandson of Shadrack and Susannah gave a biographical interview that is posted on the Yolo County, California GenWeb page.

Another grandson, Joshua Harriman was an early settler in Idaho Co. Idaho.

Another Harriman reseacher posted on that Shadrach Harriman was a son of Benjamin Harmon(?) of Suffield, Hartford Co. Connecticut but can not find anything to verify. Shadrach Harriman is someone who I would love to know more about. He was present at the battle of Point Pleasant as was Nicholas Pryor and his brothers, William and John however they list him as Skidmore Harriman in the existing militia rolls. He was a sergeant under Col John Stuart of Greenbrier.

Any information you can share would be very much appreciated and I will share whatever I have up to now.
