The Harrison Family were United Empire Loyalists who settled on Yonge north of 401 in 1806.
Wm Harrison 1784-1838, a casualty of 1837 Rebellion, was a supporter of William Lyon Mackenzie.
Mr. Harrison bought the land where Harrison Rd. is today. Harrison Family homes are on Forest Height Blvd., Windfields Farm north of York Mills Rd. near Leslie.
