Alice Harrison was born on September 11, 1877 and died on October 17, 1878.  Her epitaph reads, “Without fault before the throne of God.”

Her parents were Alice Catherine Stokes Harrison, who was born in 1848 and died in 1881 at the early age of 33, and John Stewart Harrison, who was born in 1842 and died in 1901.   According to the records I found, John married again — and married Harriet Bonnycastle Cooper (1866-1942), and they had three children.

Interestingly, Alice Catherine Stokes Harrison came from a large family.  Her parents, William Henry Stokes (1809-1874) and Prudence Catherine Ward Stokes (1816-1859) had 9 children (although some of those children died at an early age).

The family names of Stokes, Harrison, and even Bonnycastle, seem to be rooted in the Louisville area, and show up numerous times in the Cave Hill Cemetery.
