We know from my father and uncle that their father, James Harrison was born in 1896 in Joplin, Missouri, married Myrtle Turgeon (probably early 1922), left the family c. 1931, died in California in 1975, at 78 years of age. He worked in a lead mine in Picher, Oklahoma before he married. The Picher lead field ```extends from southwestern Missouri across southeastern Kansas and encompasses Ottawa County, Oklahoma.''
James Harrison shows up in Franklin County Kansas in the 1920 census, and that was probably when he was working in the lead mine.
We also know that James Harrison's father was a James W. Thomlinson, and that his mother was a Phillips.
