    • The I.G.I. lists a marriage of John Harrison and Mary Corson in Philadelphia, PA on 26 Sep 1740. Reformed Dutch Church [erroneously called Presbyterian Church]. This John is of Staten Island, born about 1712.

      John L. HARRISON
      Sex: M
      Event(s):
      Born: ABT 1712
      Of Staten Island', Richmond, 'New York
      Marriage(s):
      Spouse: Maria CORSSEN

      According to the Vernon Genealogy, John Harrison, son of Caleb and Hannah (Vernon) - b 19 January 1716 , m 14 September, 1745 to Mary Thomas.

      Caleb mentions Grandsons in his will, but none of the names of John and Maria match those names.

      This all supports my suspicion that the John Harrison that married Maria Corsen was NOT son of Caleb.
