Hi! Information wanted concerning David M. Harlan who was married to
not verified Lucinda Tucker. They had a daughter named Jane J. Harlan.
Janes' date of death I have listed is July 1859. Jane married a man by
the name of Garrett Lane. They had tow daughters Samantha Lane and Tennesee
Elmira Lane. Samantha Lane was born 12-23-1846. Tennesee Elmira Lane was
born on Feb. 16,1849 at her grandfather's David M. Harlan's home on the
Cherokee Neuter Strip, four miles up from the mouth of Shoal Creek near
Baxter Springs, Kansas. David M. Harlan would have been my 4th Great Grandfather,
Jane J. Harlan would have been my 3rd Great Grandfather, and Samantha Lane
would have been my 2d Great Grandmother and her daughter Elzora Barnett
would have been myGreat Grandmother and her son Connolly Barnett Hollis
was my Grandfather. Hope someone recognizes this family line. Would also
like information on joining the Harlan family group.
---- Thank you, George Hollis Parker, 522 Chief Stand Watie Lane, Catoosa, Oklahoma 74015
Need information on Moses HARLAN who married Sally (Sary) COWHICK in
1795 in Mason Co. KY. They are not listed in the A. H. Harlan's Green Book
nor Joydelle Wolfram's Red Texas Books. Thanks for any information that
anyone might have.

I have a Chester Harlan in a collateral line of mine- can you fill in the data? this is all I have. It is Bessie's ancestry that connects to mine, and, she is a descendant of Quakers, though whether Chester was aware of either of their Quaker ancestry, I do not know.
Descendants of William Harlan
Bessie's parents were Almon Darius Mills and Emma Elizabeth Cross. Emma was a sister of my great grandfather, Rev. James Franklin Cross.
I am trying to find my family links to the name HARLAND which I am told originated in Ireland. My name is David HARLAND Whiteman and my father's (deceased) middle name was also HARLAND. In the family tree there are other references to the name HARLAND but the mists of time have made finding the roots difficult.
My family home page with genealogical data is at: http://www2.one.net.au/~namaste/
I would be eternally grateful to anyone who can shed some light on this elusive but fascinating bit of my history. Thanks in advance. David Harland Whiteman, Sydney, Australia, email@example.com http://arjuna.cjb.net
I'm researching the descendants of Nancy Jane Comer and Elza D. Harlin, son of #2319 James H. Harlin (so spelled on tombstone) and Mary "Polly" Crawford. Elza D. was b. 17 Feb. 1838, Monroe Co., KY, and d. 1906, bd. Gamaliel, KY. In 1880, Elza and Nancy lived in Macon Co., TN, with children Mary E., 14; Wm. A., 11; Cora, 9; Minnie, 7; "Susquehanah M.," probably Lusk M., 4; and Sallie P., 2. The 1900 Macon Co., TN, census adds the following children: Eva, b. May 1883; Laura, b. Oct. 1887, and Leslie T., b. Dec. 1889. The 1910 Macon Co., TN, census shows the widow Nancy Jane and daughter Leslie T. living with widower William H. Butler, Nancy Jane's son-in-law. The 1910 also shows that Lusk M. had married Dora (E. Wood or Woods--from other documents) and had four sons: Aaron, 6; Clyde G(lenn from SS-5), 4; Edgar, 3; and Carsey, 2 mos. TN birth records indicate that Carsey was b. 25 Feb 1910, and this matches the SSDI birthdate of a Carsey Harlin whose residence was in Akron, OH, and who d. 1978. Lusk M.'s family doesn't appear in the 1920 TN soundex and my hunch is that they had moved to OH by 1920. The Macon Co., TN, courthouse has burned three times so few marriage records exist. I'd appreciate any information about the spouses of Elza D.'s daughters, marriage dates/locations, and their children. I also would like to know when/ where Lusk M. and Dora Wood(s) Harlin died. Finally, I especially am interested in whom Lusk M.'s sons married; I suspect rather strongly that son Clyde Glenn Harlin b. 20 Aug. 1905, Gamaliel, KY, d. 1976, Wichita, KS, was my grandfather. My father was Odell Clyde Harlin, b. 1923/5, Forrest City, AR. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. I have created a large Harlin-spelling database and am happy to share information.

Many Harlan family members have some interesting experiences to relate, we're sure. You don't have to be famous to be included in "Stories of Harlans". We're looking for some "feel good stories", adventurous tales, or accounts of unusual vocations (or avocations) of Harlans and Harlan kin, either past or present.
Please send the story to Ruth Harlan Lamb at harlamb @aol.com. Many thanks!

Good Morning! I have just started to research my maternal family lines.
My great-grandmother was Flora Lenore Harlan. She married John Homer Cooper
in Osceola, Iowa in 1900. I know they were in Eldorado Springs, MO in 1908
(that's when my grandmother was born). Flora's parents were Jacob Harlan
and Sarah ?. That's all I know right know. There is also a story that they
owned/operated a hotel or boarding house somewhere in Iowa. Does any of
this tie in with your information? If my line does tie in with yours, I
will definately buy a copy of the book. Thanks for your help.

Hi, Mark. I saw your September 12th posting asking for ways to gain information on other Harlands and Harlans in Canada. You took the first right step and made a posting in the Messages Page. I'm sure that other Harlands in our favorite country Canada will get in touch with you as might others living else where. The primary purpose of that Page is very basic and that is to make contact with other relatives.
The second thing you can do is contact those Harlands as listed in the Address Page that indicated that they lived in Canada and while that section is at the present time limited, you still have a chance of making some contact. Also look at the E-mail addresses in that Page which will show some Canadian locations.
The third thing to do is make sure that you list your name in the Addess Page and show your location as Canada along with the most imporant thing and that is listing your relatives as far back as you can go. They need not be listed in the Green Book. Mine aren't and I'm still trying to tie them into the book. Make sure you show your ancestors locations and dates of birth.
Send that information back to me with your approval to make the listing and it will be done. Then the hard part comes; waiting for responses.
Good hunting and welcome to the Harlan/d Web Site!! Larry Harlan
I am still having trouble locating information on my great-aunt; Anna
Rebecca Blackburn - Harlan. I located Douglas Harlan and Anna on the 1910
census, living in MO. At that time there were 5 children. I later found
an obituary from a newspaper in Potawatomie county KS for Douglas. In the
obit there was mention of six children. It only mentioned the marriage
of Anna to Douglas. It did not list her as a survivor, nor did it list
her as having pre-deceased Douglas. It was mentioned that Douglas had been
living with friends at the time of his death. The cemetery where Douglas
and the oldest son are buried is located in the same county. I could not
find any of the other children nor any mention of Anna. If anyone could
help me find additional information on this family I would greatly appreciate
My name is Mark Harland and I come from Montreal, Canada. I would like

this may be my gg-grandfather.

In working on my husband's Dixon lines, I've come across an email sent
by a Quaker rooter who indicated that Henry Dixon's wife's name was Rose
Harlan. I have never seen anything to document this, and am wondering if
anyone here has that information. This would be Henry Dixon who was born
1633 in Ireland, married to Rose in Ireland, and whose son William (b 1662
Ireland, d 1708 New Castle Co) immigrated to America abt 1688.
