Date of Death and burial place uncertain.
Likely to be in the Hawkesbury/Windsor/Colo
District of NSW about 1840, as James had four
children who at their marriages-
1. all named James Harrison & his wife Catharine
[date of their marriage Sep 1829]as their parents,
2. specified ages which meant they were born in 1830s.
