William Harrison was enumerated in the 1840 Trumbull Co., OH, federal census. There were 2 males and 4 females in the household.

William was born in Simsbury Hartford County CT circa 1812/1813 according to US census records for CA. In 1835 at Batavia Geauga Trumbull County Ohio he married Sarah Anne Thompson the daugher of William and Elsie nee Hampton Thompson. She was born circa 1816 Sussex County New Jersey.

Sarah’s sister Antoniette was the wife John Flavel Holcomb who was William’s cousin.

They had 5 children: Charlotte b. 9/1/1836 d. 4/8/1893 San Franciso CA; Ellen b. 1838, Georgiana; William Thompson d. 8-9-1862 age 19 at Eugene City Oregon which is reported in the Mountain Messenger; and Penbroke b.1841 They were all born in Trumbull County Ohio.

When Sarah died circa 1849 at Vernon County William sent his eldest daughter Charlotte then 14 to live with John Flavel Holcomb then residing in MO. and his other 2 daughters to live with his sister Janette then residing in Rockford ILL.

William H. Holcomb was enumerated in the 1850 Msopotamia, Trumbull Co. OH, federal census.

At some point John Flavel and family moved to CA taking Charlotte with them. No later than 1860 William and his 2 sons also moved to CA to the township of St. Louis, Sierra County.

On 6/2/1860 for $600.00 William purchased a store located on Main Street that he had been managing for some months. Deeds Sierra County Book D p.766 He also purchased a home which he homesteaded located nearby which he shared with his young wife Cynthia surname unknown. No record of their marriage has been found. According to the 1860 US census Cynthia was then age 26 which was 22 years younger than William. According to this census she was born in Ohio therefore they may have married there.

About a year later William became seriously ill. His doctor advised him to move to a healthier environment which he did and sold his store on 4-17-1861 and thereafter moved to Indian Ranch a foothill in Keystone Valley La Porte County which was nearby his cousin John’s farm. William’s health did not improve but rather declined rapidly; he did 7-16-1861 at age 49. He is the first to be buried in the Keystone Cemetery in the John Flavel Holcomb’s family plot. His marker simply reads Cousin Harrison the name the family called him. Register of Graves Keystone Cemetery Row 4 Lot 18. His cousin John died a week later and his grave is next to William’s. See a Grave provides a photo of the marker.
