Second Generation

Family of John BRANDON (1) & Jane ?

2. Harrison BRANDON.

Harrison Brandon was born before the Revolutionary War. He descended from the large Scotch-Irish Brandon family that immigrated from Scotland to the western mountain region of William Penn's colony. The family migrated to South Carolina prior to the Revolution. Harrison is most likely the son of John Brandon, who was killed 1776-77 in a battle with the Indians on the South Carolina frontier. The family lived in the Camden (York) District. Sarah Harlan was born on July 12, 1776 in Union District, South Carolina. Her parents were George and Rebecca Bogan Harlan. The Harlan family were Quakers who immigrated from England to Ireland. They then immigrated to William Penn's Colony in the late 1680s. They moved to North Carolina in the middle 1700's and on to South Carolina in the late 1780's. The history of this family is known back to the early 1600's.
Sarah and Harrison moved from Union District, South Carolina to South Central Kentucky around 1815. Other members of both the Harlan and Bandon families migrated to the same place around the same time. Their settlement was near line between Barren (now Monroe) County, Kentucky and Smith (now Macon) County, Tennessee. Harrison obtained land in Carroll County, Tennessee in the late 1820s. All the Brandon children and their families moved to West Tennessee. By the 1830 census, Sarah was widowed. It is not know if Harrison died in Kentucky or in Tennessee.

Harrison married Sarah Elizabeth HARLAN, daughter of George HARLAN (-1798) & Rebecca BOGAN (-1802), in Union County, South Carolina. Born on 12 Jul 1776 in Union District, South Carolina. Sarah Elizabeth died in Carroll County, Tennessee. Resided in House # 1631, 13th District, Carroll County, Tennessee in 1850.

They had the following children:
3 i. Elizabeth (1794-1824)

5 iii. Ellender (1801-)
6 iv. Rebecca (1804-)
