HARRISON DURHAM was born in 1813, in Mercer County, Ky. His father, Jesse B.
Durham, and his mother, came to Indiana in 1811, during the existence of frontier
troubles with the Indians, and Jesse B. was commander of the fort at Vallonia.
Harrison, however, was born in Kentucky by reason of his mother going back to
that place on account of possible danger from the Indians, but as soon as her
infant was old enough to travel she returned to the fort, traveling on horseback
and carrying the babe, her husband walking. His parents lived many years in the
fort and after peace was declared continued to live in that vicinity where Harrison
was raised. He spent his life mainly in farming pursuits and that of blacksmithing.
He was justice of the peace for four years in the township in which he was raised.
