My name is Julie Burrison Herrill and I am researching the Burrison family history. I do believe all of us Burrisons are some how related. I am presently working on the parents of John R. Burrison, B: 1787 Vermont, D:1864 Bruce County, Ontario, Canada. Married Polly Mary Johnson, B:1793 Manitoulin Island, Ontario, Canada, D: in Canada. I can trace Polly Mary Johnson four more generations, to 1642 in New Jersey.
HISTORY: John R. moved to Canada, where He and Polly were married and their seven children were born, second of which was, my GG-Grandfather James Burrison. James Married Ann Bennie in Walkerton, Ontario, Canada. They had the first six children of 11 in Canada, then then moved Grand Rapids, Mi where one more child was born, then they moved to Hinton, Mi where the next four children were born. My G-Grandfather James Wellington was the second born, He married Alice Adela Swett in Flint, Mi and had 3 children, second of which was my grandfather Oscar Earl, known as Earl. Earl moved to Montana with his Parents and siblings, where he farmed and family owned a resturant. He met my grandmother Nina McCampbell who was born in Rock Creek Montana. They had the first 2 of 5 children in Reed Pt, Montana. They moved to Long Beach California where the other 3 children were born, one of which is my father John Burrison.
