Chartist couple Harrison

Come back to my friendly detectives to see if we can finally sort this mystery out. In 1842 Ann Harrison chair of Female Sheffield Chartists made a speech. Around same time a Harrison teamed up with Richard Otley as delegates from Sheffield to a Chartist meeting in Manchester. I am guessing this delegate was her husband. I know there is a Harrison edge tool maker who spoke in a radical meeting in the 1830s and am guessing this was probably him too. There are 2 candidates for this Mr. Harrison, both called John Harrison. One was an edge tool and electro-plate manufacturer and the other was an edge tool worker in Dronfield or Unstone. So anyone find a direct link between a John Harrison and an Ann Harrison who was like her a Chartist?
