Finding Faulkner: The Progeny | Harrison S McBride {Gen 4}

It started, as good quests always do, with a family tale.

Harrison S McBride (Levi McBride, Susan, William, William) was born in Orange Co, New York, March 4th 1848, to parents Levi McBride and Hannah S Millspaugh.

Harrison Married Elizabeth H LNU about 1877 most likely in Orange Co, New York.

The couple had at least three children:

  • William Harrison McBride Sr. b. 2 Apr 1878 d. 22 Nov 1961 m. Catherine Stipe
  • Levi McBride b. 3 Aug 1882 d. Jul 1963
  • Edward "Eddie" McBride b. 1884 d. UNK

Very little is known of this family. In 1880, Harrison and Elizabeth were living in Wallkill, Orange Co, New York. William was not listed as living with them. By 1888 the three children, William, Levi and little Eddie were living in the Orange County Poor House with a notation that they had been residing at the Children's Home in Middletown. Elizabeth was admitted to the same Poor House in 1890. Harrison was listed as being "Intemperate".

Harrison's mother passed away in 1893 and Harrison was essentially disowned by her last wishes "It being my intention to make my son Melancton my sole heir or devisee to the exclusion of my son Harrison S and his descendants."

The whereabouts of the family, with the exception of son William, remain unknown. There was a "Harry" McBride listed in the New York Death Index, living in Newburgh, Orange Co, who passed in 1938. I can find no further information.
