The original photo was postcard sized and very faded. It was taken about 1895. Ada, the daughter of W.B. Harrison & Sally Tennessee Blakemore Harrison, is my grandmother. W.B. Harrison was the grandson of Jonas Harrison for whom Harrison Co., TX is named. He is also thought to be the gg grandson of John Sevier, the first Tennessee governor. This connection is through a probably illegitimate son of John Sevier, Jr.
Sally Tennessee Blakemore is the granddaughter of Lee Cage Blakemore, an early settler of Washington Co., AR. Lee's grandfather was Capt. John Blakemore of Fort Blakemore on the Clinch River in VA. John Blakemore was a member of the Donelson Party that reached the site of Fort Nashborough, TN in 1780 and was one of the original settlers of the Cumberland district. He is a signer of the Cumberland Compact.
