Re: "William Harrison" - why was this name chosen?

The same thing for my family. I have an uncle who was named after the Texas African American hero Norris Wright Cuney. They used Wright Cuney in two different lines. I wondered at first if our family was enslaved by Norris Wright Cuney's father but so far I have not made that link. I do however subcribe to the idea that my family admired Norris Wright Cuney and what he did for African americans in Galveston and Texas in general.
