Check the Valentine papers again. It says Harrisons of Skimino, not
The full citation is "Aris sonis focisque; being a memoir of an
American family, the Harrisons of Skimino and particularly of Jesse
Burton Harrison and Burton Norvell Harrison ... " (blah, blah, blah),
"Edited by Fairfax Harrison from material collected by Francis Burton
Harrison, and privately printed for them" by The De Vinne press in
New York, 1910. 413 pages. There's supposed to be a copy in the
Library of Congress (call number CS 71 .H32 1910), but I haven't
tried to find it there.
Hope this helps.
