Seeking descendants of Matilda Ann Harrison (b. 21 June 1823 and d. 21 December 1863) who married John Reed Thompson (1815-, d. 6 October 1890). Matilda and John immigrated to New Zealand, where she and a daughter Olivia were murdered. Matilda and John have descendants named Dixon, such as Jessica Louisa Bull (b. 1907) who married Bertram Dixon.
I am researching James Harrison (b. about 1730s) of Churchill, County Monaghan, Ireland for the purpose of naming his 14 children. James had a son John Harrison (born 1760s) who had a son Arthur Noble Harrison (b. 1785), who was the father of Matilda Harrison. I am working on naming James's 12 sons and two daughters. So far we have named 10 sons and one daughter. About 48 of us Harrison descendants in Ireland, the U.K., England, Portugal, New Zealand, and the U.S. are exchanging information on this Irish Harrison family. I look forward to hearing from you. My e-mail address ends with @gmail.com and begins with pkLjdL, but all lower case. Thank you for any information on Matilda's descendants up through 1940s.
