Lorilee Little Harrison, 1788 - 1850, Wake County, NC

My 5th great grandma, Lorilee LITTLE, was born about 1788 somewhere in North Carolina, probably Wake County where she died about 1850.

She must have been very (VERY) young when she married Lovell HARRISON, son of John Footman HARRISON and Mary RAY, on 07 Feb 1796 in Wake County, North Carolina.

They had the following children:

  1. Delia HARRISON was born in 1815 in Johnston County and died about 1865 in Wake County, North Carolina. She married William PERRY on 08 Sep 1830 in Wake County.
  2. Berry HARRISON.
  3. Willie HARRISON.
