I would like to get info on this family, can you help?

Do you have a Historical Document of your Harlan ancestors that you would like to share in this website?
If so, scan it, include a paragraph or two explaining it's significance and e-mail it to me. Enlistment papers of the Revolutionary War would be a good example. In general, documents dated prior to 1800 should be considered of interest. If you do not have a scanner, describe to me what the document is. If we think that it would be of interest, we might ask you to copy it and send it to us by regular mail to be inserted in the Historical Document Pages of this site.
Let us see what your Harlan ancestors wrote down that would be of interest.

I'm trying to find clues for connecting my South Carolina ancestory to the HARLAN/HARLAND line. I have copies of many reproductive 1700's books relative to wills, land transactions, etc....that list many individuals by names of BUFFINGTON, HARLAN, HARLIN...a few HOLLINGSWORTH....and even a Mrs. ?? DUCK; all centered in what originally was the 'Old' 96th District; then to Edgefield District; and now as Edgefield county.
Can anyone solidify for me that your individuals, which I see with many of the same names; and my referred to names.......are connected?
The similiarity is just too coincidental; so there must be some linkage. There are some FTM files that reflect the connection; but would prefer more definitive responses before accepting the commercial version.
Thank you! Please email direct to firstname.lastname@example.org, as I do not peruse your data that often.

Here is some information taken from the Business Browser portion of the business section of The Arizona Republic, May 11, 2000, edition. This is a significant historical and business event for our Harlan/Harland Family.
"The Belfast, Northern Ireland, shipyard that built the Titanic staved
off closure Wednesday by winning a $480 million contract to build four
vessels. The Harland and Wolff shipyard said it signed a deal with
Seamasters International of the Bahamas to design and build four passenger

I am forwarding the attached E mail as an addendum to a response that I made to Cathy because it goes beyond the information that I had and is entirely self explanatory.
From: "Neilla S. Banse" <email@example.com>
In your response to Cathy regarding Jehu and Susanna, you mention the marriages of three of their children to Allens. Also Melissa Harlan, the daughter of Sarah Harlan (who married Nace, but after Melissa's birth as far as we know) married another Allen sibling, Wesley Allen. Melissa was raised by her grandparents, Jehu and Susanna after her mothers death on the move to Iowa from Ohio. Actually, my grandparents always acted as though Melissa was another sibling child of Jehu and Susanna. Even the reunion book introduction, written in 1927 lists the four marriages, as though Melissa was a sibling and not a niece of the other three Harlans that married Allens. Hope this clears things up some. Neilla

My name is Steven Haddaway. I work for Thomas John Harlan, Jr, the senior partner here at Harlan & Flora, P.C. in Norfolk, VA. I was recently looking at your website ww.harlanfamily.org. I am trying to find out if he is a decendant of this family, because I would like to show him this web-site. However, I don't want to mislead him on information, if he is not actually part of this family tree. Here is a little information on him that might help you:
He was born on 12/17/1930. I believe that he was born and raised in India, but I am not sure when he moved to the US. I know that he was in the navy for many years. (please check out our websire here for more info...www.harlan-flora.com)
Please let me know if he is infact part of this heritage. I am sure that he would be delighted to take part in any type of historical mining that might take place.
Thank you, very much.............Steven

Beginning on page 16 and continued on page 34, in Alpheus Harlan's book, "History and Genealogy of the Harlan Family," you have hit the jackpot. There is information regarding the wife of Aaron, Sarah Heald, as well as her parents and their ancestry. The information regarding being married by a "priest" outside of the Society of Friends or Quakers, as they came to be known, is correct, but the book points out that this situation was rectified and they are in fact buried in Quaker Burying Grounds.
That book would be very valuable to you and it is available on the Harlan
web site for $60 including shipping and handling (click on the Store),

We had a few inches of wet snow this morning, Apr.13, in northern Wiscosnsin.
As I was uploading changes to the site, my daughter called to tell
me that she had slid off the road. Daughter and car seem to be ok.
I accidentally uploaded the unfinished version of the recent Harlan

is finally gone.

Just realized I had my ancestor John Franklin as #2508; he is actually
#6326 and his father George was #2508. Did find proof that George
#3 served as a member of the Assembly prior to 1700 in several different
publications which will suffice for what I was looking for, but would still
like to find official documentation that George also served as governor
of the 3 lower counties.

Hi, Amanda and Welcome to the Harlan Family Site.
I'm sure you will be happy to learn that I think I have found your family ancestors. I found in the History and Genealogy of the Harlan Family book on page 766 William W. Harlan (iv) born 5/28/1886, He was the only son of four children who were (i) Hadassah, b. 4/5/1876, d. 7/18/1889, (ii) Emily Jane, b. 6/14/1878, (iii) Florence C., b. 4/13/1882 and finally William. The book does not cover any of his children.
William's parents were Joel W. Harlan, b. 3/22/1850 in Muskingum Co., Ohio. Married there in 1/5/1875 to Mary A. Fowler, also b. there, 11/3/1851. Mary was the daughter of Wilson Fowler, farmer, b. 9/22/1825 and Emily McClary, b. 4/17/1828; both of Muskingham Co., Ohio.
Going back a little further, Joel's father was William S. Harlan # 3999, shoemaker, farmer, Methodist, b. 12/16/1825 in Chester Co., Pa; d. 10/3/1866 in Muskingam Co. and bur. there in Asbury Cemetery. He married there about 1848 to Mary Jane Brookover (Methodist), b there, 11/10/1826, d.there 1/17/1875; bur beside her husband. She was the daughter of Greensbury and Catherine (Stewart) Brookover, farmers and both natives of Ohio.
The book then goes to William's father was also a William # 1342, b about 1790 in Chester Co., Pa whose wife was Sarah Hewlett. The book keeps going back to the earliest Harlan, James, born about 1625.
But - I can't guarantee that any or all of these are you ancestors for sure. T he only thing I have to go on is what you gave which was his name and the date and place of birth. Possibly your folks will be able to see if any of the ancestor names look familiar.
The book is available by looking at the website. It has 1065 pages, is hardbound and applies to just Harlans and relatives. It does cost $ 60 but is well worth the money to most of us Harlans.
Gosh, for a person of 15 you're doing very well on the computer and the Internet. We don't have very many young Harlans like yourself that contact us. I was wondering if you would like to take part in our Site and, every once in awhile, you could submit through me or through Pam Ellingson, our webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org a general message to other Harlan teenagers and get some discussions going on what you and they would like to see in our family site.
Let me know if you think that I have found your ancestors. I hope so and welcome to our site. Please show your folks our site too.
