I have just started on my family tree, what a job,but fun! My g-grandmother's maiden name was Lucy Harlan. She was married to Francis Jackson Foster, had 3 children- a daughter,Mura b. 1892, a son, Neal b.Oct.7,1889 & another son, Hugh b. Dec.17,1893, my grandfather. Lucy died 3 months after having my grandfather March 13,1894 and was buried in Albany, Mo. No one knows anything else about her so was hopeing you can help me. I think the Harlan site is great!!
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.

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!

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
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.
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
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

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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
or call on 1-800-785-7785.

I received a reply from my query June 1st concerning the Revolutionary
War service of George Harlan from DWear28921@aol.com. I have tried to contact
this person, as they offered to send me a copy of the military record,
however, the mail is being returned. Are you aware of a problem with AOL

I am looking for information about the Harlan family in Texas. Do you have any ideas?
Thanks, Stan Harlan 1/8/52 (father is Royce, grandfather, William P.,great uncle Samuel, the myth is that our great grandfather came from Illinios.
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
George Harlan (1761-1837) husband of Catherine Pope. Is there a record
of his service in the American Revolutionary War?
---Caron W. Snyder (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I am descendant of: James, George #3, Ezekiel #5, William #22, Jonathan #111, William #438, David #1570, Ellis #4438, Ellis #9300, Franklin R. (i), Rolfe, Ellis Franklin stayed in Pa. and I am from Pa.
I am very interested in hearing from other descendants of Ellis #9300, especially descendants of his son William S. (ii). My name is Jackie Gross, my e-mail address is JMSAGROSS@AOL.COM
My Name is Carol Harlan, my cousin Jim Barbour gave me this web site info. I am looking for information on my family history. My father's name was Daniel J. Harlan, Jr. born Oct 31, 1940, died Nov 25, 1997 and my grandfather (obviously) was Daniel J. Harlan Sr. born Nov 22, 1917, died Jul 12, 1989. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you for your assistance.
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, email@example.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
Does anyone have the complete Harlan on a gedcom? I was looking over the Harlan genealogy page and noticed it only went for a few generations.

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,
There is a significant Harlan book now available on remainder. "Judicial

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

Please check the red books for my ancestor, JEHU SCOTT HARLAN. He is #2886 in the Green Book,but thought he might show up in the Red vols too. He was b. 1848 at "Spring Hill Farm", Berkeley Co., (W)VA. He spent part of his life in Texas (1875-1899) as a frontier lawyer. Any notes appreciated. Thanks, I'm his great grandaughter. Sue C.
