Rachel Harlan was born about 1657 and married John Cox (b. abt 1655) in New Castle, Delaware. They had 8 children. I am seeking information on Rachel's parents. I am wondering if she was a daughter of James and therefore sister of the Thomas, George, and Michael Harlan listed in the Genealogy Section of this Harlan site. The dates of birth given for these men leave a big gap between George b. 1650 and Michael b. 1660 into which Rachel's birth date would fit. I would appreciate hearing from anyone who might have the slightest bit of information about this.

From: Linda D. Latham (LDLatham@Worldnet.att.net)

My name is Linda Latham and I am looking for information about the family of my grandmother - Marion Harlan Latham.. Her father was Ernest Lynwood Harlan. I don't know how he fits into the family covered on this site, but my grandmother seems to remember that his family was originally from Pennsylvania. Based on the age of my grandmother, I assume Ernest was born in the later part of the 1800's (1870-1880?). We think he was born in Kansas. He married Elizabeth Logg (daughter of Margaret Murray and Francess Logg) in or near Chicago, IL (date unknown). Ernest Harlan was a photographer and owned a studio outside of St. Louis, MO. He had at least two brothers (one named Jack Harlan), and these two bothers owned farms in London Mills, IL. I am interested in any information related to Ernest Harlan, his brothers, and his parents. Please e-mail any leads you may have. Thanks!

Subject: Tom or "Tommy" Harlan born 1946 or '47

Graduated High School in Reno, Nevada. Class of 1965. His father, I believe was associated with the Veterans Administration in Reno when they lived there. Your family has a wonderful web page and I was tickled to find it!

Tommy was a part of a group of guys who were good friends in high school, but managed to lose track of each other. There were seven of us. Tommy is the only one we have not found. It turns out that the six we have found are meeting in Reno the weekend of June 25-28. We would truly love to find Tommy! I found your web page in a search of Yahoo! If you can help or give me direction to help in the search I would greatly appreciate it. E-mail addresses: randt@choice-homes or toulouse@flash.net

I am searching for Harlands in Pennsylvania who may be related to Harlands in Ontario. My husband`s grandmother went to nursing school in Pennsylvania . In the late 1800`s young girls did not go to school out of the country unless they had relatives with which to stay. She was the daughter of Abraham and Ann from Yokefleet, Yorkshire, England. they came to Canada in 1882. they settled in Markham Township in Ontario, Canada.Her name was Maria. she died in 1904.

I am looking for info on James Harlan, d.o.b. 10-31-1728, Alabama. He died in 1790. His father was born in Virginia and mother was born in Maryland. I understand his occupation was farming. The Daughters of the American Revolution have been my resource to date. This is all of the info they have thus far. I 've been told he is my great-great grandfather, but need some more info for verification.
---Thank you- Allison Baez

Subject: Ellis and Catherine Harlan

Kieth, in response to your messages both dated May 22nd, the History and Genealogy of the Harlan Family covers Ezekiel's descendants down thru Ellis and Catherine # 497-a. If you would care to purchase it refer to the Store Page.

A brief run-down of your line from the book is as follows:
.93 Captain William Harland, b ~1594 in England
1 James Harland, b~ 1625 in England
3 George Harland, b 1650, m Elizabeth Duck, m 9, 17, 1678
5 Ezekiel Harlan, b 6, 16, 1679 in Ireland, m Mary Bezer, d 1702, m Ruth Buffington, d 1743-4
23 Ezekiel Harlan, b 5, 19, 1707, m Hannah Osborn, b 2 , 21 ,1707
121 Ellis Harlan, b ~1732-1736, m Catherine
497-a Nancy, d 1841, m Caleb Starr and they had Mary Pauline, m Charles Austin Rider, James, m Nellie Maugh and Susie Maugh, Thomas, m Nannie Wolf, Ruth, m John Bean, Ezekiel, m Mary Upshaw, Sallie, m Jessee Mayfield, George, m Nellie Carr and Nannie Bell, and Joseph McMinn, m Delilah Adair, Walter Adair, m Ruth Ann Thornton and Elizabeth Phillips, Nancy m Samuel Latimore, Deborah, m Richard Newlan and Dr. William Sloan and Ellis, m Delilah Johnson.

So- where the Starr to Patrick to Lowery lines go from there remains a mystery but I hope, however, that this helps. I am also posting my response in the Message Page with the in hope that someone else will be able to send to you additional information.

I am planning to go on vacation to Indiana and Kentucky for about 11 days beginning June 13. Today I added two new stories to the Who's Who page and beacause of the increase in size I put it on its own page. I may not have the time to correct all the links to the new page before I leave.

Subject: Reply to May 21st Message

Hello, Vance and welcome to the Site. No one has a complete Harlan GEDCOM to the best of our knowledge since it would be a major undertaking. The LDS Church may have something close to it. Do you have any suggestions. There are many of us cousins that have GEDCOM files available for such a project

I highly recommend that you consider purchasing the book by A. H. Harlan. The History and Genealogy of the Harlan Family as offered in The Store Page of the Site.

Well worth the money if you have a desire to learn much more about the Harlan/ds family.

What a wonderful web site. My name is Nancy Harlan and I would like to find any info on my Harlan ancestry. Unfortunately, I am at a dead end with my grandfather Wilson Harlan, born January 1886 in either southern Lancaster Co. or Chester Co. PA. For unknown reasons he was not raised by his parents but by a Walton family instead. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Subject: Harlan Family Reunion Tour -- September 22-October 3, 1998

The Harlan Family Reunion Tour is set to visit Scotland, England and Wales from September 22 to October 3, 1998. We have about 40 travellers all ready to go. We are right up to the deadline and have received a message from one of our Harlan flock -- Ferne Tooley of Shreveport, LA. She had planned to go with a cousin who now is not able to go and is looking for a roommate. Right now all of our single travellers have been paired up with someone so she has no travelling companion. If you had been thinking about going but didn't want to go alone, it's not too late. Ferne would love to have you as a roommate. Just send me an e-mail on ashdrye@aol.com or call on 1-800-785-7785.

Subject: #45 George Harlan Update

While attending the Harlan Tricentennial in Wilmington, Delaware in August, 1987, my husband and I volunteered to gather the descendants of H212 Jehu Harlan who was an ancestor of Hannah Jane Harlan, my husband's grandmother. When no one volunteered for his 5 siblings we agreed to receive data for their descendants also. Thus our task became updating the line of H45 George Harlan.

During the last 11 years we have accumulated over 1200 descendants! If you descend from any of the children of H45 George Harlan (H212 Jehu, H213 Elijah, H214 Catherine, H216 James and H217 Elizabeth) please contribute your data so you can be included in our Harlan Genealogy Update! Thank you kindly! We are Edgar and Darlene Norman, 3620 N. Calhoun Road, Brookfield, WI 53005

From: Keith Lowrey (AANM85A@prodigy.com)

I had not reviewed the entire Genealogy posted on the Harlans and did not realize that it ended with the third generation. My data shows a son named Eziekel born to Ezekiel Harlan and Ruth Buffington. This son would be in the 4th generation. My records show that he married a person named Hannah Osborn, they had a son named Ellis who would be in the 5th generation. Ellis married a Catherine ?. They had seven children, the oldest was Nannie who would be in the 6th Generation. Nannie married Caleb Starr. They would be my 4th GGs. There are some blanks in surnames of a couple of spouses. If anyone can add to this, and confirm it, I would appreciate it. I then follow the Starr line to Patrick to Lowrey. My address is Keith Lowrey, aanm85a@prodigy.com

It was quite a surprise to find the Harlan Family web site. There is a ton of information and I will be visiting it often. I had to go back and check my genealogy program to find my relationship. Nannie Harlan , who married Caleb Starr, was my fourth Great grandmother. I obtained most of my information about the Harlans from Emmitt Starr's 1922 book "History of the Cherokee Indians" I was unable to e-mail you on the Harlan Message board. If anyone wants to know more about my data, I can be reached at aanm85a@prodigy.com

Subject: Jehu Scott Harlan #2886 to Sue Cain

In response to your em of May 5th asking for a check on your g grandfather Jehu Scott Harlan who was, part of his life ( 1875-1899 ) in Texas as a frontier lawyer. He is listed in the Green Book as # 2886 You asked that I also check the Red Books which I have done and I am sorry to say that there is no continuation of his line in them.

Since you referenced the Green Book, I assume that you know of his father of the same name Jehu Harlan, # 831, born 10, 18, 1788 in Berkley Co. ( now in ) W. Va, died there 5, 4, 1847. Married in 1841 to Maria Rector, born Hampshire CO, Va, 1820.

They had twelve children, # 2875 through Jehu # 2886 who had eight children however there is no further record of them in the Green Book. They are numbered as # 7265-7272.

Let me know if you care to know about his siblings. Again, I assume that you are aware of them.

I have taken the liberty of posting my reply to your request with the hope that some cousin may be able to shed some light on Jehu Scott Harlan, # 2886.

From: Jennifer Fulton jfulton@real.com

I had not visited the site before, thanks for pointing me there. Very well done, BTW. Please go ahead and include me on your list, though I am not a Harlan descendant. My ancestress, Mary Baily, married George Harlan as her second husband. I am descended from children of her first marriage to Alexander Stuart.

Alexander died while his children were all under the age of 10 and Mary remarried soon afterwards. Therefore there are close ties between the Stuarts and the Harlans as George was the only father some of the children ever knew. --Jen
