I am also a desendant of Harrison G. Persons. He was a riverboat pilot. I actual saw a picture of him in a old book of Ellery. My mother looks just like him! He and his family lived in Ellery, NY. I have that he died about 1903. I have his wife was Susan Stom, they had 7 children that I know of. Do you know the rest of his death date? He and his family's work was done in the Provo Temple. Harrison's son William Wallace Persons is my family line. Does anyone have any other info.
