Margaret Harrison

( fl. 1890s). A Scotswoman living in Jamaica, she read literature distributed by James Palmer, a pioneer worker. She later opened her home to Palmer for Sabbath meetings. In 1893 Mrs. Harrison went to Battle Creek Sanitarium for treatments. While there, she attended the 1893 General Conference session and made an appeal for missionaries to Jamaica. Soon after, the first Jamaican believers were baptized and a church was organized. The second church was located in Mrs. Harrison’s home.
