For many years I have been collecting photos of and information about the various signs that have been placed in honor of some of my ancestors. These signs are a glimpse into some event and/or place where they lived. Some of the signs are small like a placard with a few poignant words, some are large, and they go into great detail, and then there are those that are somewhere in between. Each one gives added life to those ancestors.
Benjamin Harrison V is my 2nd cousin 9 times removed. He was born on April 5, 1726, in Charles City, Virginia Colony. He grew up to become one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, a Signer of the Declaration of Independence, and the Governor of Virginia from 1781 to1784. His son William Henry Harrison and his great-grandson Benjamin Harrison both became President of the United States. He died on April 24, 1791, at the age of 65.
