Fourth Generation (Continued)

Family of Raney BELEW (18) & Rebecca JOHNSON

84. John Harrison BELEW, G Grandson, M. Born on 13 Dec 1824 in Alabama. John Harrison was 48 when he died in Lauderdale County, AL on 20 Mar 1873. John Harrison was buried in Portertown Cemetery Lexington, Laud. County, AL.

Info from Muriel BARNETT. Muriel stated that John & Catherine were buried at
Portertown Cemetery, Lawrence, AL., however we found them in the Civitan Cemetery at
Rogersville, AL.

He married Catherine E. PORTER, F, on 30 Oct 1844 in Lauderdale County, AL. Born on 12 Jul 1822 in South Carolina. Catherine E. was 84 when she died in Lauderdale County, AL on 19 Feb 1907. Catherine E. was buried in Portertown Cemetery Lexington, Laud., County AL.

They had the following children:
i. Sarah Rebecca, GG Granddaughter, F. Born in 1846 in Alabama. Sarah Rebecca was 94 when she died in Lauderdale County, AL in 1940. Sarah Rebecca was buried in Portertown Cemetery, Lexington, Laud. County AL.

Source: Muriel BARNETT. Muriel states Sarah's death date, 13 Aug 1891. I
used the death date on her headstone. In the 1850 Lauderdale County AL census,
it states Sarah is 6 yrs. old and Rainey is 4 yrs. old. Their headstones both
have the year born as 1846. Since Rainey's has the exact date, I feel like
the birth year on Sarah's is wrong, but I have no proof.

She married Henry J. FRENCH, M, on 15 Feb 1876 in Alabama. Born in 1848. Henry J. was 89 when he died in Lauderdale County, AL in 1937. Henry J. was buried in Pettus Cemetery Lexington, Lauderdale County AL.

Info from Muriel BARNETT. In the 1850 Lauderdale County AL census it shows Sarah
as 6 yrs and Rainey as 4 yrs. However on both of their headstone it has the
year of their birth as 1846.

He married Mary E. HOWARD, F, on 22 Dec 1870. Born on 25 Dec 1845. Mary E. was 45 when she died in Lauderdale County, AL on 13 Aug 1891. Mary E. was buried in Portertown Cemetery, Lexington, Laud. County AL.
