In the 1920s Tommy Harrison was a photographer from Monroe County, Kentucky who traveled about in Clay County and took pictures. My mother still has black and white family pictures taken by him. When he, Tommy, was in this area he would sometimes stay with her grandfather, Matthias McDaniel Cherry. I am wondering if Tommy were related to Matthias McDaniel Harrison, who lived in Jackson County in 1870, district 13, house 119. The part of Jackson he was living in became part of Clay County when it was formed. Matthias Harrison was the son of Rankin and Eliza Harrison. I do not know where they were living in 1880 but would like to know. In 1870 the Harrison family lived three families away from the Mary Cherry family. Her daughter Sarah was the same age as Matthias Harrison and in 1874 had Matthias McDaniel Cherry, no husband in sight. ???
