Hi: I'm searching for descendants of Michael Harland (b.1847) and Sarah Jane McShane (b.1846) all born in Lurgan, Co. Armagh, N. Ireland. I am Michael's great-granddaughter through his son John (b.1879). There was also a son Michael (b.1885) as well as a daughter Margaret (b.1872). I know that their father died in a fire in Lurgan, that he had been in the army around 1866, and that his army paybook gave his beneficiary as W. John Harland.
I would really appreciate contact with descendants of the younger Michael and/or Margaret. It is thought that one or both may have gone emigrated to Australia in the early 1900s.
If you are descended from Michael or Margaret Harland, born in Co. Armagh,
N. Ireland, or know anyone who is, I would appreciate your getting in touch
with me at: email@example.com

My ggg grandfather was John Harlan born in 1813, probably in England. According to our research, he came to the US via Toronto Canada. He married and had two sons, William J. and James, and a daughter, Margaret. His wife died and he remarried Margaret Torpy from Ireland.
Do you have any information as to the father/mother of John Harlan born around this time? or any other Harlans coming to the US via Canada?

First I want to say how excited I was to find this sight.
I am looking for the ancestry of Martin M. Harlan born April 1837; died July 1864. I have found some conflicting information regarding his date and place of death. According to the Adjudent General Martin M. was wounded in the Kenasaw Mountain GA battle and take to a military hospital in TN where he died on July 9, 1864.We also have photographs of his grave-stone in the Founders Cemetary in Marion, Co. IN. I have that he was married Lucy Ann Kelley/Kelly Oct 28, 1857. The had two children Pametta M. Harlan and John C. Harlan. We have not confirmed anything further back than Martin. We have found some information we believe may connect Martain to Nathan Harlan b 1798 married to Martha Reid b. 1799. Can we get some confirmation of this somewhere? Please let me know.

I know this is shooting in the dark, but maybe you can help...
My ggg grandmother, FANNY SMITH, aged ca. 35 yrs, was in Jackson Co. TN 1850, a widow with 5 children... 4 daughters and one son. The son's name was HARLAN SMITH. After several months, I found his father's name, JAMES SAMUEL SMITH.
In this same census, the mother says she was born in KY.. In later censuses, the children list the father's birthplace <James S. Smith> as KY...
I can't find Fanny's maiden name, but with her only son named HARLAN, I thought perhaps that was her maiden name..
Does any of this sound familiar or do you have any links that might help? I know this is totally off the wall, but I've hit paydirt in stranger ways!!
