Harrison Photo Album

The photos displayed below are just a few photos of some of my Harrison family members from the very early days. Preserving old photos is very important to the memories of your early ancestors. I display these photo with a lot of pride because this is where I and other family members came from.

Lee Moureaux Harrison (Houston Police Officer)

Sargent Lee M. Harrison, my father was one of the first African American police officer in the Houston, Texas area. He rose to the rank of sargent at a very rapid pace before being wounded on patrol one night in an alley in Houston, Texas which ended his law enforcement career. But Lee's life really didn't start there, after graduating from Charlton Pollard H.S. in Beaumont, Texas he traveled to Prairie View A&M College to play football. After leaving PV he married a lady by the name of Glady and they had no children. After a brief marriage he met and married Helen Jewel Franklin (my mother). Lee M. Harrison is the first man from the left with the sargent strips.
