The Harmon Coat of Arms was granted to John Harmon, Bishop of 
Exeter. Harmon was born about 1465 at Sutton-Coldrield, Warwickshire, 
England, and died there in More Hall on Oct. 23, 1554. He was buried 
on the north side of the chancel of the church at Sutton where a monument 
was erected to his memory. On an escutcheon over the east window of the 
south aisle of the church are the Bishop of Exeter's coat of arms, and the same 
arms are under the King's arms on the south wall of the north aisle, and on 
the north wall of the south aisle. (By William Dugdale, 1730.)

FOREWORD. 

The Harmon Genealogy is the most complete history of the family in 
existence, and comprises all branches in New England, including the Scar- 
boro, Maine branch, the Saco and York, Maine branch, the Springfield, Mass. 
branch, and the Braintree, Mass. branch, and contains the records of over 
5,000 descendants and a mass of historical data. It also contains a good ac- 
count of Col. Johnson Harmon, the famous Indian fighter; Capt. Allison 
Harmon, the strong man, of Maine ; Gov. Judson Harmon, of Ohio ; Mrs. 
Grover Cleveland (now Mrs. Thomas J. Preston) wife of the ex-President 
of the United States; the Harmons who fought in the first Indian Wars, the 
French War, the Revolution, the War of 1812, and the Rebellion; and the 
Harmons who were the first settlers of New England towns. 

The book represents the combined efforts of a number of descendants 
who have written the history of the Harmon family, including: Rev. George 
M. Bodge; Mr. Charles L. Harmon, of Manchester, N. H. ; Hon. Cyril P. 
Harmon, of W. Buxton, Me. ; Judge George W. Harman, of Bennington, 
Vt. ; and Artemas C. Harmon, of Washington, D. C. The work was started 
about 50 years ago and was recently completed, edited and published by the 
author after five years of work. 

It is appropriate to state, that on account of the scarcity of paper at the 
present time, and in order to reduce the cost of printing the book, the pages 
have been printed in full width and depth and reduced slightly in number 
from that which was originally contemplated. This reduction necessitated 
the elimination of all unimportant material, such as certain allied families, 
unattached families, and miscellaneous photos, but the main records have not 
been cut. The bulk of these records was never printed before. 

EXPLANATION OF THE RECORDS. 

The name of the head of the family is printed in CAPITAL letters, and 
name of the father, grandfather, great grandfather, etc. in parenthesis, follows 
in order. The head of the family also appears in the father's family, which 
is found in the earlier generation by consulting the index at the end of the 
book. 

in order to save time and space the following abbreviations are used 
through this book: b. for born; d. for died; m. married; int. intention; unm. 
unmarried ; prob. probably, etc. 

THE NAME, HARMON. 

The early forms in England were, HERMAN and HARMAN. In 
New England, where the family first settled, HARMON is used most en- 
tirely, while in other parts of the United States, HARMAN and HARMON 
are used extensively. The name is misspelled in a number of variations as, 
Harmond, Hammon, Hammond, Hermon, Herman, and Hannon.

THE HARMONS IN THE ENGLISH NAVY. 

From the Dictionary of National Biography, London: Sir John Har- 
mon (born about 1620) Admiral of the English Navy, is conjectured to have 
belonged to the Harmons of Suffolk, a county which furnished several com- 
manders to the Navy. It seems that he was also one of a family of ship 
owners, whose ships were engaged for the service of the state, but the first 
distinct mention of John Harmon is as commanding the "Welcome" of 40 
guns and 200 men in the Battle of Portland, on Feb. 18, 1652-3. He also 
commanded the "Welcome" in the fight off the mouth of the Thames, on 
June 2-3, 1653, and the ship being disabled he was sent in charge of the 
prisoners. In August he was transferred to the "Diamond", 160 men and 
36 guns, in which the following year he accompanied Blake to the Mediter- 
ranean. He captured a prize that was very rich, but had little silver in her, 
and returned to England Oct. 1655. He later commanded the "Worcester" 
and was at Santa Cruz, and in 1665 was in command of the "Royal Charles", 
carrying the Duke of York's flag in the battle of June 3d, when the Dutch 
flagship, "Eendracht" was blown up, while engaged with the "Royal Charles". 
A few days after the battle Harmon was Knighted and promoted to be rear 
admiral of the white squadron. He also sunk the French fleet at Martinique 
in 1667. He arrived again in England and died Oct. 11, 1673. His por- 
trait by Sir Peter Lely is in the Painted Hall at Greenwich, to which it was 
given by George IV. Harmon's widow, Dame Katherine Harmon, was liv- 
ing in 1699. His only son James Harmon, a captain in the Navy, was slain 
in a fight with an Algerian cruiser, on Jan. 19, 1677. and his only dau. mar- 
ried Dauntesey Brouncker, of Earl Stoke, Wiltshire, who died in 1693, leav- 
ing two dau. who died without issue. 

From the Royal Navy, by IV m. L. Clowes: Capt. Thomas Harmon, 
of the Tiger 46 guns, distinguished himself while on convoy duty in 1672, in 
the Mediterranean. In a two-hour fight with the Dutch "Schakerloo", 28 
guns on Feb. 23, 1674, Capt. P. DeWitte surrendered to Harmon, who took 
his prize into Cadiz, where the Spanish governor released DeWitte and his 
men. Harmon received a musket ball under his left eye, but he soon recov- 
ered. DeWitte lost 50 killed and 70 wounded, including himself. 

In 1677 Harmon commanded the "Sapphire", 34 guns, in the Mediter- 
lanean. and on Sept. 10, he fell in with the Algerine man-of-war, "Golden 
Horse", 46 guns, and engaged with her. Jn this fight the brave Harmon fell 
mortally wounded. 

Capt. James Harmon commanded the "Guernsey", 32 guns, and on Jan. 
10. 1678 engaged the Algerine man-of-war, "White Horse", 50 guns and 
500 men. The "Guernsey" used her guns with telling effect that the enemy 
soun sheered off. The English lost 9 killed, including the brave Harmon, 3 
musket balls in succession pierced him, yet he continued in command. He 
was carried below and died three days after the fight. Capt. James Harmon 
was a son of Admiral Sir John Harmon. His relation to Capt. Thomas Har- 
mon is not clear. John Harmon born about 1625, commanded the "Wel- 
come", 40 guns, in the first Dutch war. Captain to the Lord High Admiral 
in the battle of June, 1665, Knighted, promoted Rear- Admiral June, 1666, 
and was severely wounded in the battle. He was Vice-Admiral and Admiral 
in the 3d. Dutch war. He died Oct. 1673. 

Capt. William was in command of the "Hawk" fireship, June 30, 1690 
at the action off Beachy Head. In 1693 he commanded the "Mermaid", 32 
guns. In Sept. 1694 with the "Advice", 42 guns, Capt. Harmon, in an 
attack on the town of Leo'gane (San Domingo) in the West Indies, was mor- 
tally wounded and died Oct. 6, 1694.

THE ORIGINAL AMERICAN ANCESTOR OF THE 
SCARBORO BRANCH. 

It is stated in certain histories that Nathaniel Harmon, the first of the 
name to settle in Braintree, Mass., was the father of John Harmon, who 
first settled in Wells and then in Scarboro, Me. There are no known records 
to ; prove that Nathaniel was the father of John Harmon, and it is also doubt- 
ed by many people who have searched for Harmon ancestry. The writer of 
this book would like to claim Nathaniel as the progenitor of the race, but 
before doing so would like to have evidence to prove it and also some verifi- 
cation of the statement. 

The records of Braintree, Mass., specify the names of Nathaniel's chil- 
dren born in Braintree, but they do not include the name of John. However 
there was a lapse of ten years, (1642 to 1652), between the birth of his 
daughters, Mary and Sarah, and therefore it is possible that John could have 
been born during this period. It is also possible that John was born in Dor- 
chester, Mass., on account of the following: "Nathaniel Harmon, one of a 
committee met at Dorchester and was allotted land there, 1662." also, "John 
Hamon bp. 20, mo. 4, 1652." (Dorchester Church Records). 



THE SCARBORO BRANCH. 5 

In opposition to the contention that Nathaniel was the father of John 
Harmon, Mr. Charles T. Libby, author of the Libby Genealogy and a well 
known lawyer, of Portland, Me., writes, "I have interviewed the person who 
furnished the statement that Nathaniel was the father of John Harmon in 
Mr. Little's book. Genealogical and Family History of Maine, but he will 
not vouch for it." Rev. George M. Bodge, who searched for years for the 
record of the original Harmon ancestor also stated in his letters that he never 
found any evidence to substantiate the statement that Nathaniel Harmon was 
the father of John Harmon, of Wells and Scarboro, Maine. Therefore, the 
writer has placed John Harmon as the original American ancestor of the 
Scarboro Harmons. 

THE SCARBORO, MAINE, BRANCH. 

Scarboro was the home of this branch of Harmons in America. It was 
here that the family grew to large numbers, and spread all over New England 
and the western states as far as California, and also in Canada. In 1800 
Scarboro contained 25 families of Harmons, averaging eight members to a 
family. Not until 1790 did the Harmons leave Scarboro and settle in other 
towns, in large numbers, when Buxton housed six families, and Standish four, 
and Machias one. In 1815 several families moved to Eaton, N. H., and in 
1840 the number of Harmon families increased to 25 in this part of N. H. 
In 1860 Buxton contained 32 families, all of which descended from our 
Scarboro ancestors. Machias and vicinity, in 1850, had 15 families, and 
in 1880 Standish had 13 families. In 1860 Portland contained 17 fami- 
lies of Harmons. About 1849-50 a large number of the family went west, 
probably in search of gold and from all reports most of these became very 
wealthy. 

On account of the affection and good will, which every descendent of 
the Scarboro Harmons should bear toward the ancient town, the writer has 
added, in the following pages, a brief story of the early settlement of Scarboro, 
with the names of its first settlers. 

SCARBORO, Cumberland County, (originally York County), Me., 
situated on the sea coast, midway between Portland and Saco, was first set- 
tled by John Stratton at Stratton Island, prior to 1631. In 1631 it was 
granted to Capt. Thomas Cammock, a nephew of the Earl of Warwick, who 
probably obtained for him a grant. He received 1500 acres, between Black 
Point and Spurwink river, from the Plymouth Council, but soon sold his 
grant and went to the West Indies where he died Sept., 1643. 

The town of Scarboro was the sixth in the state to organize, and during 
the 17th century was one of the principal business centers of the state of 
Maine. Being situated on the sea coast, it is a noted summer resort on ac- 
count of its fine beach for bathing. 

Blue Point now a part of Saco was settled next by Richard Foxwell and 
others. Dunstan was settled soon after, Henry Josselyn, brother of the dis- 
tinguished voyager, arrived in 1634. The town was named for Scarboro in 
England. In 1659 or 60 John Libby settled in Scarboro. He came from 
Broadstairs, Kent County, England, and is the ancestor of a large family of 
Libbys in America. He died in 1682.

Early Settlement of Scarboro: Of the first planters who settled near 
Thomas Cammock, were Stephen Lapthorne, Ambrose Booden, and Robert 
Jordan. These men settled on his place as tenants. Richard Foxwell and 
Henry Watts came with Thomas Lewis and Capt. Richard Bonython in 1636. 
They received their grant upon condition that they would transport 50 persons 
within seven years who would settle upon it. Watts deeded a little later one 
half of his land to Ralph Allison and called it in the deed, Black Point, alias 
Scarborough. George Deering and Nicholas Edgecomb came in 1639, and 
William Smith in 1640. According to Smith, when he came to Black Point 
in 1640, there was four plantations there, those of Richard Foxwell, Henry 
Watts, George Deering, and Nicholas Edgecomb, and that some time later 
Hilkiah Bailey, Edward Shaw, and Tristram Alger came. 

The third principal settlement was made at Dunstan, about 1651, by the 
brothers, Andrew and Arthur Alger. They bought 1000 acres from the 
Indians and called it "Dunster" after their native town in County of Somer- 
setshire, England. In 1671 Henry Jocellyn claimed there was 50 houses at 
Black Point, and it became a flourishing seaport. 

The Indian outbreaks exiled many of the old inhabitants who never re- 
turned. Below are a few names of the persons who settled near what is now 
called, "Scottow's Hill", before 1700: Henry Jocelyn ; Robert Jordan; 
Henry Williams; John Libby; Christopher Collins; Joseph Phippen ; Mich- 
ael Maddiver ; John Tenny ; Andrew Brown ; Samuel Oakman ; Elias Oak- 
man ; Christopher Paige ; Giles Roberts ; Richard Moore ; William Shelden ; 
Nathan Bedford; James Robinson; John Burrage; William Burrage; Gyles 
Barge; John Alger; John Palmer; John Austin; Roger Deering; John Sam- 
son; John Fickett; John McKenney. 

During the Indian wars about this time, the town was pillaged to such 
an extent that the settlement was deserted, the people seeking places of greater 
safety and not until after 1700 did the people return. The second settlement 
of Black Point began about 1702, the first settlers being a band of seven per- 
sons who came from Lynn, Mass. These were, John Larrabee, Henry Libby, 
and his three sons, and Charles Pine, and a Mr. Blood. In 1719 the inhabi- 
tants increased to such an extent that it was decided to organize a town govt. 
In 1761 there was 310 taxable polls, and 190 houses. In 1791 the inhabi- 
tants numbered 2235, or about the same as Portland. 

A few of the people who came after 1700 were: Jonathan Andrews; 
John and Nathaniel Babb ; Dr. Alvan Bacon; Moses Banks; Joseph Berry; 
Joseph and Samuel Boothby ; Arthur Bragdon ; Solomon and Gideon Brag- 
don; Job Burnham; Joseph Calfe; John Coolbroth ; Roger Deering; Henry 
Dresser; Robert Elliott; Joseph Emerson; James Fly; Daniel Fogg; Benja-

The first meeting of the Methodist Episcopal Church, of Dunstan Cor- 
ner, was held at the house of Samuel Harmon in Jan., 1802. Rev. Lot L. 
and E, C. Harmon were among the pastors of the Free Baptist Church, of 
Scarboro, which was organized in 1831. 

Scarboro at the present time : The population of Scarboro has remain- 
ed nearly constant for 150 years past. In 1790 the number of inhabitants 
was about 2200, and it was a flourishing ship-building town, while in the 
census of 1917 gives the population of Scarboro and West Scarboro, as 2260. 
The writer visited Scarboro in the summer of 1919, and secured a few pic- 
tures of the places of historic interest. Farmer Googins who was at work in 
the fields, was interviewed. He lives at Dunstan Landing on the spot of Gov. 
William King's birth place. He told of the old King house being taken down 
in 1915, and a number of the old relics of the house were disposed of. King 
was the first governor of Maine, and lived later on Scottow's Hill. Clams are 
still plentiful on the clam flats of Scarboro, judging from the quantity of large 
clams Farmer Googins digs for the Moulton House shore dinners. 

Dunstan Landing, situated on the Dunstan river, is about, a mile distant 
from the sea. This is the place where large three-masted schooners were built 
and launched by our forefathers several hundred years ago. The river at 
Dunstan Landing is now only about 25 feet wide and is fresh, and it is grad- 
ually filling up, and disappearing. This change in the river was caused by 
the dyke, which was built about 50 years ago when Dunstan river was wide 
and deep. The dyke is situated between Dunstan and the sea, and is now 
used for the toad bed by the railroad. 

Dunstan river several hundred years ago was 300 feet wide, and large 
wooden ships were built by our ancestors on Scottow's Hill and at Dunstan 
and then launched at Dunstan Landing. It is said that logs used in building 
the ships completely filled the road leading from Dunstan Landing to the 
Corner, in these early days. All trace of this shio-building enterprise has 
completely disappeared. 

The old vital records of Scarboro are kept in the town clerk's office in 
the old Dr. Bacon house, located at Dunstan Corner on the Portland road. 
Across the road from the Bacon house is the Dunstan P. O. and the Knight 
store. 

Scottow's Hill is a short distance inland and some of the old houses there 
built hundreds of years ago can be seen from Dunstan Landing. Black Point 
was also visited and the Hunnewell house said to be the oldest house in Scar- 
boro is still in a good state of preservation and occupied by a family. The 
Hunnewell house has a number of Indian stories connected with it. It is 
said that Hunnewell had fights here with the Indians, and that one day he 
was cutting hay on his place when an Indian crept up behind him. Hunne- 
well allowed the Indian to get close to him and then turning quickly around 
with his sythe he reached out and cut the Indian's head off. In this house is 
to be seen the old loop holes of colonial days, that were used in the fights with 
the Indians. 



THE SCARBORO BRANCH. 9 

JOHN HARMON, THE FIRST, OF SCARBORO, MAINE. 

The first mention of this John Harmon was in the old court files of York 
County, Maine: "July 9, 1667 John Harmon, servant of John Symons, was 
presented for swearing two oaths." 

The following is a description of the Narragansett Fort fight, on Dec. 
19, 1675, in which he fought: "The Commissioners of the Colonies of Mass., 
Plymouth, and Connecticut met at Boston, Nov. 2, 1675, and voted to raise 
1000 men with arms, and each colony to furnish its proportion. Josiah Wins- 
low, Governor of Plymouth, was chosen Commander-in-chief on Nov. 12, 
1675." 

"The Massachusetts companies were mustered on Dedham Plain, Dec. 9, 
and before marching the men were promised a reward in lands for their ser- 
vices, in addition to pay, provided they drove the Narragansetts out of the 
fort. On Dec. 10, seven companies of Massachusetts men marched under 
command of Major Samuel Appleton, of Ipswich, and joined the Plymouth 
companies and the Commander-in-chief and the Connecticut men." 

"The Indian fortification was in Rhode Island at a place now called South 
Kingston. The English lost heavily and it seemed they would be repulsed, 
but the day was saved when a company of Connecticut men attacked the In- 
dians from the rear. The English lost six captains and eighty men killed, 
and 150 wounded, and they all suffered disastrously from the intense cold." 

"The war raged fiercely for months after the destruction of the Narragan- 
sett stronghold, but was ended when King Phillip, the Indian chief was 
killed on Aug. 12, 1676." 

"In this war 600 English were killed, twelve or thirteen towns totally de- 
stroyed, and many others damaged, 600 buildings were burned, and one-tenth 
of the families of the colonies were burned out, and a large number of cattle 
and a large amount of property, was destroyed. A monument was later 
erected on the battle ground in South Kingston to commemorate the Narra- 
gansett Fort fight." l 

John Harmon's name appears in a list of Hampton and Salisbury soldiers 
at Black Point Garrison, Oct. 12, 1676, under command of Lieut. Tippen or 
Tappan. This was after the Narragansett Fort fight in which he took part 
on Dec. 19, 1675. It is said that during a parley with the Indians, who ap- 
peared at the Garrison 100 strong, the inhabitants took the opportunity to 
escape to the westward towns of Wells, Portsmouth, etc. John Harmon set- 
tled in Wells to which place he probably escaped with the other inhabitants of 
Black Point. In this attack the Indian chief, Mugg, or Mog Hegon, was 
killed by Lieut. Tippen, who was sent from Boston with a company of soldiers. 

Land Grants and Deeds of John Harmon: 

John Harmon, at Wells, took the Oath of Allegiance to the Massa- 
chusetts Government, Nov. 6, 1677. In 1677 grants of land were made to 
John Harmon upon condition, "that he build a house and lives therein." His 
name appears in a list of inhabitants of Wells from 1641 to 1687. In 1698, 
50 acres were granted to John Harmon, the same lying between Webhanet 
and Ogunquit rivers, on the King's highway. 

In 1686, John Harmon, of Wells, made a complaint before the grand 
jury that Richard Rogers had entered upon his land at Wells and carried off 
18 loads of candle wood. Rogers was found guilty of trespass and fined, "5 
barrels of tar at 5 gallons per barrel." (This term, "candle wood", applied 
to pitch knots which were used in place of candles.) (History of W ells by 
Bourne.) 



10 THE HARMON GENEALOGY. 

In 1694 a grant of land was made to John Harmon in Kennebunk. The 
earliest permanent settlers of Wells when it included Kennebunk, were the 
ancestors of the Harmons and others who were here prior to 1653. (Kenne- 
bunk by Remick.)

John Harmon, of Scarboro, Me., in 1728 appeared in a list of soldiers 
who were in the Narragansett Fort fight on Dec. 19, 1675, and who were 
granted land in Amherst, N. H. in 1728. He drew lot No. 37, but this lot 
was exchanged for another one. In 1732, 840 soldier's claims were allowed, 
the Plymouth soldiers sharing equally with those of the Mass. Colony. 

He was not in the lists of the Mass. Colony soldiers, but was probably 
listed with one of the Plymouth companies of which there are no lists. 

To the soldiers who marched in 1675 Narragansett township No. 3, now 
Amherst, N. H., was granted in 1728. John Harmon alive in Scarboro, Me., 
was a soldier grantee. His claim was drawn by Thomas Stocker, Jr., to 
whom it was probably sold in 1734. (It may be of interest to add here, that 
it was in a search for the war record of this John Harmon, a maternal ances- 
tor of Rev. George M. Bodge, that he (Bodge) discovered the Treasury 
books of John Hull, the contents of which became the basis of his book, 
"Soldiers in King Phillip's War.") 

In a petition of the inhabitants of Scarborough and Biddeford, dated 
May 26, 1742, in regard to the Narragansett soldiers in 1733, appears John 
Harmon, Samuel Harmon, and Nathaniel Harmon.

THE SCARBORO BRANCH. 17 

The first mention of him is in W. B. Smith's, "Memorials of Machias," 
where in May, 1778, his name appears in a list of citizens for a subscription 
to the support of Parson Lyon. He built a log house in what is now Marsh- 
field and his family was b. there. In 1804 he built a frame house which was 
occupied by his son, Samuel, during his life and in 1898 was occupied by Dea- 
con Ellery Smith. Benjamin was a son of Nathaniel and was b. in Scarboro. 
{Taken from "Machias Union", of July 19, 1898).

William, b. Sept. 11, 1779, m.— , 1802, Mary McAllister, of St. Stephen.

The history of Machais, Me., states, that the pioneers of Machias came 
from Scarboro, in May, 1763. It is therefore probable that Benjamin Har- 
mon came shortly after this time, as he was one of the first settlers of Machias. 

An affidavit of Daniel Foster, of East Machias, formerly Machias in 
Washington Co. Me., dated Jan. 28, 1853, states that Capt. Ephraim Chase 
was commander of an armed vessel called, "Nesquoit',, during part of the 
Revolutionary war, and Mr. Benjamin Harmon, Foster's neighbor in Ma- 
chias, was 2d. lieutenant. The vessel carried 10 guns and cruised between 
Boston and Machias. 

In 1787 Benjamin Harmon, of Machias, was appointed one of the Hog 
Reeves, and in 1790 he was on the school tax list. In 1794 he was sergeant 
in Capt. Gideon O'Brien's militia company. In 1804 he was a juryman and 
also the surveyor of highways in Machias.

part owner and captain of the schooner, "Hannah." He was of medium height

(Capt. Allison Harmon, the strong man of Maine. The following 
stories were told by J. Oliver A. Harmon, of Buxton, and others who knew 
Allison: "Allison Harmon followed the sea and as mate and captain of his 
vessel was well liked by all of his men. His wife was Abigail Emery and he 
thought very much of her, but finally he went insane and then he wanted to 
kill her. At one time when she was in the house, and after setting fire to it, 
he stood at the door with a pitch fork thinking she would come out that way, 
and he could kill her, but she escaped by another door." 

"Allison was of medium height but very broad across the shoulders, he 
was solidly built, and as spry as a cat. At one time when loading his ship with 
lumber he sent 4 men to bring down to the vessel a piece of heavy timber, but 
they could not move it, whereupon Allison alone shouldered the timber and 
carried it aboard." 



THE SCARBORO BRANCH. 37 

"When he was insane the people were much afraid of him and finally they 
built a very strong cage and by force of numbers managed to capture him and 
confine him in the cage. He was very cunning under confinement and at 
times would project his paw like hand through the bars pretending to shake 
hands, when he would pull the unfortunate person roughly up to the cage and 
threaten to pull the arms out at the shoulder." 

According to another story: "Allison lived in Scarboro until 1850 when 
he died. He was a sea captain and a man of extraordinary strength, who, 
after the crew failed to lift the new anchor, would shoulder it with ease and 
carry it down to the vessel with the cabin boy hanging on behind. When he 
became crazy the authorities attempted to capture him at his house and gath- 
ered a large number of men to assist. He thereupon, locked the doors and 
went up on the roof through a large chimney and began throwing bricks down 
upon his would-be captors, and finally drove them off. This anecdote was 
told by Samuel Berry who lived near the Harmon house and witnessed the 
affair. Berry said, he was allowed to enter Allison's house at anv time, as he 
was well liked by Allison, who saved him from a whipping when a boy." 

"At another time when Allison visited one of his aunts, and on his de- 
parture he stepped around the side of the house and discharged a large pistol 
beside the window to frighten the women folks in the house. Of course the 
women were frightened and flew out of the way, and hoped that he would 
not come to see them again." 

The following account is by the Rev. Lot L. Harmon: "Capt. Allison 
Harmon was a brother to Henry Harmon, the father of Rev. Lot, and a son 
of Capt. Samuel Harmon. Allison was b. on Scottaway's Hill or Scottows' 
and was a remarkably strong man and followed the sea from a boy. When 
18 years old he was mate of an East India trading vessel, and in a severe storm 
was called upon to assist the captain in steering the ship. The captain was 
soon forced to retire on account of the severity of the storm, and as no other 
man was strong enough he stood at the helm for 48 hours continuously with- 
out eating. The captain promised him if he saved the ship in the gale, he 
would be made captain the next time the ship left port. The vessel was 
owned by the Cutt's firm of Saco, and most of Allison's sea faring life was 
spent in the employ of this firm." 

"Allison weighed about 250 lbs., and was 5 ft. 10 in. in height, and 
measured three feet across the shoulders. His neck was the size of an ordi- 
nary man's body and his wrists were double the size of an ordinary man's. 
He is said to have lugged an anchor weighing 1600 lbs. and with one hand to 
have tossed over an anchor weighing 400 lbs., and also turned over a piece of 
southern pine that 9 negroes could not move." 

"At one time an English fighter visiting Portland heard about Capt. 
Harmon's strength and went to arrange a fight with him. Harmon was 
sawing out great logs at the mill when the Englishman made his errand known 
and supposed the captain would require a week or two to give notice and call 
a large company to witness the fight, but the captain asked him to wait until 
he had finished sawing the log, and then they would step out in the mill yard 
and have it out. When the log was finished the captain took the whole thing 
up in his arms and boosted it out at the tail of the mill, and turning suddenly 
around knocked off the Englishman's hat, saying, 'Now I am ready.' The 
Englishman was so amazed at the exhibition of such marvelous strength and 
speed that he decided he did not want to fight, and after making an apology 
he departed.")

children.) 

The following account of Dominicus Harmon {Jonathan, William, Sam- 
uel, John), was written by Cyril P. Harmon, of Buxton: My grandfather, 
Dominicus Harmon, was a very powerful man. I remember my father say- 
ing that, in haying time grandfather would easily do the work of two men. I 
think they cut hay on the salt marsh and grandfather would use a heavy scythe, 
and taking the left hand nob in his right, and with his left hand on the ex- 
treme end of the snath would mow in that way carrying a swathe 12 or 15 
feet wide. 

It was fun to hear Uncle Charles Waterhouse tell about him. I recollect 
one story in particular, and it was at the time Uncle Charles married Aunt 
Dorcas (1830). He was married either at her home or came there soon 
after they were married. At the time grandfather was cutting timber with 
the boys, Levi and Dominicus and in the morning they went to the woods as 
usual. Uncle Charles "calculated" he could handle an axe equal to the best 
man that ever trod in shoe leather, and so offered to help chop that day. Then 
grandfather got him an axe and Uncle Charles said it was a good one, and 
they started for the woods. 

But LTncle Charles lagged a short distance behind to see what kind of a 
tree grandfather tackled. When grandfather stepped up to a good sized pine 
and sunk his axe into it, Uncle Charles dropped his axe into one about the 
same size. Both trees fell about the same time and grandfather tackled an- 
other and so did Uncle Charles, and it was down, down, down, all day. The 
boys kept out of the way. Uncle Charles said he cut as many trees as grand- 
father and nothing was said and no one seemed to think of anything unusual. 
The next day grandfather started for the woods as usual, but as Uncle Charles 
was going away with his new bride, he admitted that he never was so glad to 
get out of a bad scrape, as he was when he left that axe sticking in the block 
at the door. Then Aunt Dorcas laughed and said, "Indeed Charles you 
could not have done it another day." 

The Freeman Family: (Josiah and Dominicus Harmon, above, married 
Freeman girls). Samuel Freeman came from Co. Kent, England in 1630 and 
settled in Watertown. He m. Apphia and returned to England on business 
and d. there, leaving a son, Samuel, Jr. Samuel, Jr., son of Samuel and his 
wife, Apphia, was b. Mar. 11, 1638, m. May 12, 1658, Mercy Southworth, 
of Plymouth. Constant, son of Samuel, Jr., and his wife, Mercy, was b. 
Mar. 31, 1669, m. Oct. 11, 1694, Jane Treat. Jonathan, son of Canstant 
Freeman and his wife, Jane, was b. Jan. 9, 1710 in Truro Cape Cod, m. Sept. 

23, 1731, Rebecca Binney. Jonathan, Jr., son of Jonathan and Rebecca, was 
b. May 18, 1739, m. Nov. 28, 1759, Sarah Parker, of Falmouth, and settled 
in Gorham, in 1762, where all his children were b. except the oldest. Jonathan 
Jr., was a Revolutionary soldier and fought in the Battle of Bunker Hill.

Charles Henry, b. 1836. He served in Civil War, at Gettysburg, under 

Alvin, b. 1838. [an assumed name. 

Mrs. Abner Harmon (Sarah Marshall), was a woman of high character. 
Her memory has been cherished in the neighborhood as a synonym of goodness 
and virtue. She was generous, lovable, witty, musical, and charming, and 
died regretted by all who knew her. 

Of her children : Jonathan was very much thought of by all, but was 
modest and unambitious. He raised a large family of 14 children. Samuel 
was a great wit and story teller, and of great promise, but he died young. 
Nathan was a man of the kindest heart under a rough exterior, a fine mechanic, 
but not a success as a politician. Artemas was a wit, a renowned story teller, 
of humorous character, a good mathematician, county engineer, and expert 
accountant for the State of Mass. for years. Cyrus was an impulsive man, 
who often lost his friends of years by his frank criticism. He was not an

educated man, but remarkably well read in historical affairs of the state, and 
the political situation of the world. He was a man of fine physique, generous, 
public spirited, and a forceful speaker. William was bright, strong, capable, 
far-seeing, and lovable. Dorcas was well read, much like Cyrus. Sally was 
the type of her mother. 

The children of the 2d wife, Mary, were not as strong in any sense as 
those by Sarah. Charles Henry served in the Civil War with honor. He 
was wounded at Gettysburg, Pa., and served in the first corps, under an as- 
sumed name. He is buried at Gettysburg and the assumed name is over the 
grave. It was said he was a slave to drink, and in his periods of debauch did 
things that his better nature and pride deplored, and he determined, it seems, 
the family should not share in his disgrace. 

As to the last resting place of Jonathan Harmon, the Revolutionary 
soldier, from the little hamlet of East Madison, on the Madison road, a little 
more than a mile from the bridge, near the hill, is the Jonathan Harmon farm, 
where Abner moved from Scarboro, Scottow's Hill, bringing Jonathan with 
lim. The old gentleman always clung to his knee breeches, and wore his 
lair in a que. In 1832 he was, I presume, stricken with a shock or dizziness 
ind fell into the fire on the open hearth. Father, with one hand crippled at 
the time, was near and drew him out, but the old gentleman died soon after 
ind was buried on the hill on the left side of the road going to Madison 
Corner. The Harmons here being very practical people did not spend their 

substance in sculpture, and so no costly marble has enshrined his 

lust, but at his head a boulder is placed. 

I have one of the bills Jonathan received for his pay as a Continental 
soldier. Jonathan and Abner Harmon lived in Scarboro near the Allison 
Harmon house. Grandfather used to tell about Scottaway's Hill and he was 
?resent when Allison burned a portion of his house, which was saved when he 
ind Samuel, brother of Allison, grappled with him and threw him to the 
ground. 

I have lately obtained the location of "all," in the yard (probably mean- 
ng graves), and am sending you a sketch of it. The whole family were 
Duried here, as shown by the plan, but since, all have been taken to the cemetery 
it Madison Corner, except this one row, and besides two or three persons, I 
do not believe any one knows their resting place. Now, going on the road 
[ mentioned before, you come to the old Harmon house and two barns further 
north and then a few rods further, on the ridge close to the road are the 
graves, as mentioned. (The above account of Mrs. Abner Harmon and 
Jonathan Harmon, was taken from a letter written by Rev. H. W. Harmon, 
dated Effingham, N. H., Feb. 14, 1908, and was received from Cyril P. 
Harmon, of Buxton.)

A Letter from Joel M. Marshall, Esq., of Alfred, Me., to the Author: 
(A remarkable letter for a man 85 years old.) 

"Alfred, Sept. 7, 1919. To Artemas C. Harmon: 

My dear Cousin, Thou distant yet in absence dear. Your letter of April 
19, is here before me. I am not sure what my answer to that was, so I re- 
sume a duty on the matter in re-genealogical. 

Sarah Marshall was twin sister to my uncle Nathan, and was the wife 
of Abner Harmon, of Eaton, N. H., afterwards Madison. She was no doubt 
an exceptional woman, everything in my experience and observation shows it. 

Ruth Andrews, her mother and father's mother, I have heard old men 
who knew her say, was a very handsome woman, and her children and grand- 
children in character and form, and worthiness, confirm their judgment. 

My father, Joel, was the youngest of her children. He was captain of 
the Buxton and Hollis Light Infantry Co., and I have been told by men and 
women who knew, that he was the handsomest man in the company. He was 
then just six feet tall, straight as a gun-barrel, had black or nearly black hair, 
ruddy complexion, and dark blue eyes. His average weight was 212 to 220, 



THE SCARBORO BRANCH. 53 

strongly built but not fat or corpulent, for as usually said of the Marshalls, 
you never saw a fat one. Father was a blacksmith, died in 1867. Uncle 
Nathan was just six feet tall, and straight, and an athelete. He was a brick 
mason, had 4 daughters and one son. Uncle Jonathan, whom I never saw, 
was a ship carpenter, was six foot, two inches tall and had 8 children, 5 sons 
and 3 daughters. He died in 1833, in Buxton. 

Perhaps this is enough about the Marshall contingent, though I may say 
that Daniel Marshall, grandfather, was a soldier in the Revolutionary War, 
and served 5 years. I have his record. Lieut. Amos Andrews, Ruth's father, 
was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. I think I have his record, too. 

I will now discuss the Harmon side, I saw Abner Harmon in Eaton, 
when I was 10 years old in 1844. He was then an old man, average size, not 
so large as father, and I saw also at that time some of his children : Artemas, 
William, and Harry Harmon (who married Abner's daughter) and his family, 
Lot and Colby, and a girl, and Dorcas, who married Mark Blaisdell, of 
Eaton. Olive B., Burnham, lived with us nearly a year. She was a hand- 
some woman ; lived afterwards in Peterboro, N. H. 

Artemas Harmon was Census Marshal in 1850 or '60 for Freedom and 
Eaton, and he accomplished the job in almost an incredible short time. My 
father boasted of it a great deal. One of his sons, who went from Lowell or 
Lawrence, was in one of the companies of the 6th Mass. Regt. that went thru 
Baltimore in March, 1861, and which was attacked by the famous Plug 
Uglies, and he shot the first Rebel that was killed in the Civil War. That 
was what Olive B., your aunt, wrote me in 1861. I don't recollect which 
son it was. (This was John M. Harmon.) 

Horace Harmon, of Madison or Freedom, called on me a few years ago, 
I don't know which Harmon his father was, perhaps Cyrus or William, he 
claimed to be proud of his Marshall lineage, and spoke of Cyrus particularly. 
I remember he said he wore a number 18 collar. 

Horatio, Nathan's son, and I had planned to go up to Madison and see 
them, but we didn't get there, much to my disappointment. When I visited 
Cyrus in 1844, he seemed to be "well-to-do." I remember his of corn. 

Harry Harmon, who married Abner's oldest daughter, lived way up in 
the woods, a mile from the village or corner, beside Long Pond. He had 
sons, Lot and Colby, and a young daughter, a pretty girl as I remember, a little 
older than I. Harry was a near relative of the celebrated Allison Harmon, 
the man of phenominal strength. He was double jointed all over, weighed 
18 pounds when a baby, and doubtless was the most powerful man in this 
section of the country. I had my information from my father and from 
James O. A. Harmon, who had seen and talked with him. He was later in 
life, insane and had to be kept in a cage. No one dared to shake hands with 
him, they feared he would crush their hands in his welcome grip. Joseph 
Harmon, late of Gorham, was also one of those dynamic wonders, and there 
were others. 

There seems to have been another Abner Harmon, in Scarboro, I think 
he must have been the grandfather of James Oliver Abner Harmon, late of 
Buxton, prominent lumberman and manufacturer, and one of the best equip- 
ped men of Buxton for all around ability. He was my first school master. 
I was very fond of him all thru life, thru sun and shade to the last. 

There was a John Harmon, of Scarboro, a noted wit, many of the most 
laughable stories that were told, were known as old John Harmon stories. 
All the Harmons that I know about, seem to have come from Scarboro, thou 
of the Buxton Harmons: Joel, Pelatiah, and Thomas, were Revolutionary

dau. of Col. John and Abigail (Hodgdon) March, of Eaton, N. H. Mittie 
was b. Dec. 1, 1814, in Eaton, N. H., and d. Apr. 27, 1892, in Lawrence, 
Mass. At the time of Mr. Harmon's death the following account was pub- 
lished in the newspapers: "Hon. Artemas Harmon, a former prominent citizen 
of Lawrence, Mass., died at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. John Sprague, 
in Maiden, Mass., on Tuesday, Feb. 7, 1882, at 4.15 P. M., aged 75. He was 
b. in Scarboro, Me., Sept. 23, 1808, and afterwards lived in Madison, N. H., 
(formerly Eaton) and was prominent in public life in that section of N. H. 

He served in the state legislature from 1842 to 1848, four years in the 
House and two years in the Senate, being elected from a politically hostile 
constituency by force of his personal popularity. He was an acknowledged 
leader and trusted counselor in his political party, and was especially active 
and influential as a promoter on the Whig side of the famous alliance, which 
sent John P. Hale to the U. S. Senate, and started a revolution in Granite 
State politics. 

Mr. Harmon became resident of Lawrence, Mass., in 1853, was superin- 
tendent of the Atlantic Mills there, and held the municipal offices of Alderman 
and Auditor of Accounts. He was appointed by Gen. H. K. Oliver, in 1861, 
to a responsible position in the office of the State Treasurer, and he moved 
with his family to Maiden, Mass. He held this position for a period of 18 
years, when he retired from active life in 1876, soon after which he suffered a 
stroke of paralysis, which eventually caused his death. 

He was a man of marked force and integrity of character, of a keen wit, 
superior intelligence, with an abundance of accurate information, especially in 
the department of political history; resolute and somewhat stern in his con- 
victions, yet of a tolerant and charitable spirit, pure minded and humane in all 
his sympathies and sentiments, and with a kindly heart and fine social humor. 
His amiable life companion, a devoted mother of the best type of New England 
matron, survives him." 

(It might be of interest to add here the following, written by her daugh- 
ter, Mary Frances Harmon, in regard to the naming of Mrs. Harmon: "I 
heard from my mother's own lips that her father, John March, often enter- 
tained strange ministers, who came to preach for the family, and when my 
mother was only a few weeks old a Rev. Sherburne was at the house over 
Sunday, and being informed that the baby had not been named, he asked the 
privilege to name her, "Mittie Sherburne March," Mittie being a favorite 
name of his.) See March familv.

THE SACO AND YORK, MAINE, BRANCH. 

Early Settlement of Saco, Maine. 

In 1606 King James I, of England, granted patents to two companies, 
the London, and the Plymouth. These companies soon fitted out vessels to 
explore and plant colonies in their respective territories. In Dec, 1606, 
three ships and 105 colonies left England and settled at Jamestown, Va. The 
second expedition of May, 1607, with three ships and 100 colonists, proved 
unsuccessful. Through the agency of Gorges, Richard Vines and his company 
visited Saco river in 1616-7 and camped at Winter Harbor through the winter. 
This was the first habitation of civilized man in New England and our ad- 
venturers had no nearer English neighbors than those at Jamestown. This 
was several years before the settlement of Massachusetts, by the Puritans. 
(History of Kennebunk.) 

The History of Kennebunkport, by Bradbury: Judge Williamson, who 
wrote the History of Maine, wrote to Mr. Charles Bradbury before 1837, 
that Richard Vines visited Saco in 1609, and that in 1616-17 he passed the 
winter at Winter Harbor. Saco was settled by Vines and probably John Old- 
ham, as early as 1623. Oldham was killed by the Indians in 1637, this caused 
a war in which the Indian tribe was destroyed. 

Saco, York County, was granted by the Plymouth Company, to Thorn;!:; 
Lewis and Capt. Richard Bonython, by patent bearing date of Feb. 12, 1629 
and on June 28, 1631, they took possession of their grant. Blue Point, now 
a part of Saco, was settled soon after 1631, by Richard Foxwell and others. 
The town of Saco was inc., July 5, 1653, and Biddeford (formerly Winter 
Harbor), formerly a part of Saco, was inc. Nov. 14, 1718. On account of 
the Indian wars, Saco was deserted in 1688. and not until 1718 did the people 
return, when it was called, Biddeford. In 1762 Pepperellborough was inc., 
it comprising that part of Biddeford lying east of the Saco river. On Feb. 23, 
1805, Pepperellborough was changed to Saco. In the records of the town 
from 1653 to 1688 appears, James and John Harmon, who were probably of 
the inhabitants. 

The Lewis and Bonython patent of Saco, dated Feb. 12, 1629, occupied 
land on the north side of the Saco river, extending four miles on the sea and 
eight miles up in the main land, containing 32 square miles.

THE SACO AND YORK, MAINE, BRANCH. 135 

In a list of inhabitants, dated in 1636, with rates to be paid, appears 
Capt. Richard Bonython, Richard Foxwell, and John Bonython. 

In 1640, Capt. Cammock declared that Richard Foxwell has for four 
years lived at Black Point, in the right of R. Bonython, his father-in-law, who 
settled him there and gave him much freedom. 

In 1680, James Gibbons, John Bonython, Phillip Foxwell, and John 
Harmon (of Saco), were heirs and proprietors of the land patent granted to 
Lewis and Bonython. James Gibbons was a son-in-law of Mr. Lewis and 
settled on the patent in 1642. 

Mr. Hamans (prob. Harman), a planter, is mentioned in the Cleaves 
petition to Parliament, in 1643, against Mr. Vines. 

Capt. Richard Bonython, probably settled on his grant of land in Saco, 
as early as his associate, Mr. Lewis. The commissioners court was held in his 
house in 1636, this being the first notice of his presence in Saco. The house 
of Bonython stood on the left bank of the Saco river, a short distance below the 
falls. The remains of the basement was seen in 1830, in the field owned by 
James Gray, Esq., a few rods east of the meeting house of the 2d parish. In 
plowing this field in 1760, several articles of domestic use, such as spoons, 
candle sticks, etc., of a unique character, were dug up. These were supposed 
to have been buried in the ruins of the house, which was destroyed by the 
Indians in 1675. 

Capt. Bonython was appointed by Sir Ferdinand Gorges, one of the 
Counsellors for the government of the province, in 1640. The last mention 
of him is in 1647, he probably died not long after 1647, certainly before 1653, 
as his name was not in a list of inhabitants of Saco taken in 1653, though his 
son was. 

York, Maine, and the Early Harmons. 

York, County of York, was granted to Sir Ferdinando Gorges, and was 
the original seat of government for the Province of Maine. On April 10, 
1641, it was chartered by Gorges as a borough, and Thomas Gorges, cousin of 
Ferdinando, was made governor, and Edward Johnson was appointed alder- 
man. It was made a city the next year, in 1642, and was called, Gorgeana, 
and was named York, in 1652. In 1692 the Indians attacked the place and 
about 150 inhabitants were slain or captured, the remainder escaped into the 
Harmon, Preble, Alcock, and Norton garrisoned houses, the best fortifications 
in town. For further account of the York Massacre, see phamplet of 1917, 
by Ida M. Wightman. 

In 1743, the town of York, "granted unto Such Person or Persons as will 
accept of and undertake it, Liberty to Build a Bridge at their own cost over 
York river, Somewhere between Col. Harmon's Wharfe and Mr. Donnell's 
Point of Rocks above the ferry; Provided there be a sufficient way Left for 
Sloops to Pass and Repass, and the Inhabitants to have free liberty to Pa^s 
over the Same without anything to Pay. Voted that if said Bridge shall be 
built over said River, it Shall be by Capt. Samuel Sewall's Wharfe." The 
bridge was built in 1757, and was the first pile bridge in America. It was 
built by Samuel Sewall, an engineer of wide reputation. 

It was on the York river, near the now famous Marshall House, that 
Col. Johnson Harmon and his brother, Deacon John Harmon, lived in the 
first half of the 18th Century. The father of these Harmons was John Har- 
mon, who owned the Harmon garrison house, which formed, with other houses, 
a place of refuge for the inhabitants of York during the famous massacre by 
the Indians, in 1692. This old house, afterwards the Stacey house, was lo- 
cated near the river on the original Harmon property. Of the old garrison 
houses at York, the Mclntire house built in 1640, is the only one that remains, 
while the Junkins house was taken down a few years ago. 



136 THE HARMON GENEALOGY. 

Several hundred years ago York river was famous for its wharfs and 
warehouses, where extensive shipping was carried on, especially with the 
West Indies. Some of these wharfs still remain to this day. The Varrell 
wharf is located on the site of the old Harmon wharf and property. Har- 
mon house was built here on the river at Harmon park, in 1882. 

The Harmon Massacre in York, about 1715: (History of York, Me.) 
The people by the name of Harmon lived at the lower part of the town near 
the ocean. The men were sea-faring persons and dauntless in disposition. 
During their absence on a voyage, one or more of the Indians offered insults 
to the women of one of the households. On their return from the sea, de- 
termined on revenge, the Harmons invited the Indians to a "pow wow" on the 
point of land on the west end of the Barrell mill dam. The Indians accepted 
the invitation and kept up the debauch till late at night, when being very 
drunk, the Harmons and their friends killed every one of them. 

This massacre happened on a Saturday night and the next Sunday morn- 
ing the tidings of the affair spread far and wide. Father Samuel Moody, in 
his discourse alluded to that inhuman butchery in a terribly scathing manner 
and prophesied that the Harmon name would become extinct and the time 
would come when not one male by the name of Harmon could be found. It 
is said by some writers that this prophesy came true as no one by the name of 
Harmon has lived in York since 1830, with possibly, a few exceptions. Al- 
though they did not live in York, the descendants of these Harmons, settled 
in Sanford, then in Harrison, and later in Brunswick and Portland, where th-y 
reside to this day. 

The Harmon Massacre occurred not more than 60 rods from the Stacey 
house, which was said to be the old Harmon garrison house into which the 
inhabitants escaped from the Indians in the York Massacre, of 1692. The 
old Stacey house, which formerly stood on the hill, near the southwest end of 
the Parish Creek bridge, on the east side of the road, had many legends con- 
nected with it. It was a quaint old wooden structure abounding in projections 
and sharp angles, with an enormous chimney in the center. This house was 
built on the declivity of a hill, which made it half basement, and was once 
occupied by a trader. The crevice between the outer and inner walls was 
said to have been filled with brick. This house stood at the head of the mill 
pond, which was navigable for large vessels, until the dam below was built. 

As early as 1630 and '40 this building was used as a trading place and 
was known as a "Clubhouse." Mr. Stacey was a naval officer under John 
Paul Jones, in 1812, and died a U. S. pensioner at an old age. When the old 
house was torn down im 1870 a skeleton was found under the hearth, and a 
very ancient sign board with the inscription, "Coffee, Tea, Sugar, Molasses, 
Spices, Rum and Gin, Wine, Brandy, etc." It is thought that the skeleton 
was one of the Indians killed in the Harmon Massacre. A timber was mark- 
ed — 1634. The remains of a wharf existed in 1875, on the east side of the 
mill pond, nearly opposite the site of this old house. 

The Harmons had seen much of the depredations of the Indians about 
York in the early days, and hatred and revenge was held strongly in their 
hearts. Col. Johnson Harmon and his brother, Deacon John Harmon, who 
as boys, had passed through the scenes of that frightful carnage, at the hands of 
the Indians, when York was destroyed in 1692. John Harmon, the father of 
these boys, lived in one of the four best garrison houses in the town, and the 
inhabitants, who were not killed, escaped into these houses. These Harmons 
were born fighters and leaders of men, and they became famous for their ser- 
vices in the early Indian and French wars. In 1711 Capt. Harmon's family 
garrison at York, with 30 souls, was reviewed by the order of the governor.

THE HARMON COAT OF ARMS. 
York, Me. 

{From the Hartford Doily Times, of Feb. 12, 1912). 

"Few families possess a more dignified and suggestive coat of arms than 
the Harmon family. This valuable token of the family honor in England 
and insignia of the Knighthood, conferred long ago on Sir John Harmon, 
admiral of the English Navy, was rescued some years ago from oblivion, by 
Israel Harmon, of Springfield, Mass., who had it photographed and introduced 
to many of the family throughout the country. For years the Harmon coat 
of arms remained in comparative oblivion, hidden away in an old museum in 
York, Me., which was once used as a jail." (This jail built in 1653, is still 
used as a museum and contains the Harmon coat of arms, and also the old 
sword said to have been used by the famous Indian fighter, Col. Johnson 
Harmon, who was born about 1675 and died in 1751.) 

"The crest of the coat of arms is shown as an American flag, seemingly 
so out of place in an English design. But the American branch of the family 
who had suffered much from British tyranny and were most loyal to the new 
colony in America, insisted that the Stars and Stripes should be incorporated in 
the family shield." (It is not known when the flag was added to the coat of 
arms, but as the Stars and Stripes were first used soon after the Revolution it 
is possible that the flag was incorporated at this time.) (The shield or 
escutcheon of the coat of arms is shown divided by a horizonal bar or fess, and 
contains four castles, two above and two below the fess. Castles were 
granted, according to the authorities, to those who had reduced a fortified 
place, or who were the first to scale the walls of an assaulted fortification. 
This coat of arms was handed down to the present generation by Sally Har- 
mon Varrell, a daughter of Capt. Thomas Harmon {Nathaniel, John, John, 
James), a mariner of York, Me.) 

The writer reproduced the Harmon coat of arms in the York museum, 
retaining the old English design, the odd appearance of which suggests age, 
and it is therefore probably several hundred years old. It seems strange that 
there is no mention of this coat of arms in Burke's General Armory, of Lon- 
don, although there is mentioned twenty different coat of arms of the Har- 
man, Harmon, or Hermon family. It is said by certain people that this York, 
Me., coat of arms is not genuine, and that it was not granted by the Herald's 
College, of England. 

JAMES HARMON, 1st., of SACO, ME., in 1655. 

In Folsom's history, of Saco, and Biddeford, written in 1830, it is stated 
that: "In 1655 James Harmon, of Saco, made the announcement that he 
slandered John Snelling." James Harmon married Sarah Clarke, May 6, 
(1658) or before, (the date was torn). Their children were: John, Jane, 
Barbara and others. 

It is probable that James Harmon came over to America with the Lewis 
and Bonython Company, or soon after. His name is frequently mentioned in 
connection with that of James Gibbons, one of the proprietors of the Bony- 
thon Patent. 

Edward Clarke, father of Sarah Harmon, was admitted freeman, at 
Wells, Me., on July 5, 1653. In 1656 he was a juryman for Cape Porpise, 
at York. He d. in 1661. His wife, Barbara, adm. upon his estate. His 
children were: Samuel, Sarah, William, Edward and others. Sarah m. 
James Harmon; Edward m. Willmot, and d. in 1671. 

At a commissioner's court held at Saco, in 1658, "James Harmon was 
presented for swearing, and was fine 40 shillings and bound, to his good be-

havfor until the County Court, in a bond of 10 pounds, and Ralph Tristrum 
for him." 

James Harmon, who m. Sarah Clarke, was a very intemperate and 
troublesome man. He was finally put in jail in York. One of the children 
of Harmon was bound to James Gibbons of Saco, for 8 years. In 1661, James 
Harmon and his wife having separated, the court awarded her, the wife, all 
his property for her maintenance, part of which was in the possession of Mr. 
Batson. Also that the constable of Cape Porpoise, shall seize the two swine 
in Mr. Batson's possession and deliver them to Sarah Harmon and her child. 

On Sept. 22, 1666, it was ordered that Goodis Harmon, with others 
shall be placed in seat 5 of the meeting house. Also on Dec. 9, 1674, Good- 
wife Harmon and Harmon, Jr., will occupy seat 5 in the meeting house. (The 
above orders were for the seating of the women in the church, Goodwife Har- 
mon was prob. James Harmon's wife, Sarah, and Goodwife Harmon, Jr., 
was prob. John Harmon's wife, Elizabeth, who he m. about 1674. John 
Harmon later lived in York. 

Under deed granted by James Gibbons, dated April 20, 1693, Sarah Har- 
mon, claimed 34 acres of land in Saco, and 16 acres near Goosefair river. 
Mention is made in York deeds, of 1717, that James Harmon formerly owned 
land in Saco. 

JAMES HARMON, 1st, of Saco, Me., b. prob. in England and came to this 
country when Saco was first settled. He m. Sarah Clarke, May 6, (1658?), 
or before. (The record was torn). She was a dau. of Edward Clarke and his

In a list of rates paid by the inhabitants of Saco, in 1670, Harmon paid 
16 s. John Harmon was one of the few persons in Saco who owned horses 
in 1674. Carriages were unknown. On July 28, 1674, Richard Cummings, 
John Harmon, and others with their horses were allowed use of Humphrey 
Scammon's ferry, near the mouth of Saco river. In a list of the inhabitants 
of Saco, dated July 5, 1653, no Harmons appear.

others. John Harmon and Thomas Cummings were the administrators of 
the estate of Richard Cummings, who d. about 1676. 

Capt. Richard Bonython lived in Saco before 1636, and d. about 1653. He

Capt. Harmon's letter to Lieut.-Gov. Dummer and the governor's reply: 

Augusta, (Maine), Feb. 25, 1722-23. 
Sir: 

Persuant to instructions from Col. Westbrook, I rec'd. 120 men Equipt 
with Snowshoes, Moginsons, and Twenty Days provisions to march up Am- 
moscoggin River, etc. But after some days Travel, I found the river was 
wholly broke up and ye Designed March frustreat. Heartily Sorry to See 
ye Government Disappointed in their Expectations and willing to take the 
best methods the Season would allow of. I took the pilots advice and with 
ye concurance of ye Officers, Divided into 3 partyes, who have performed 
Several Scouts on Acct. of which as well as ye reasons I could not march 
further into ye country, I herewith present to your Honour and Shall Trans- 
mit the Same to Col. Westbrook pr. the first. I have given Orders to Capt. 
Heath to repeat his Marches from the Kennebec River to the Ammoscoggin 
River and shall keep ye rest of men continually moving with Expectation of 
Speedy Directions from your Honour or my Colonel, and have also ordered 
Capt. Gookin to Repeat his marches from Casco River to Pussimscutt Falls 
and from Thense to the Harry Sickett and to where as ye matter Reqrs. 
These 120 men yt. I have the Honour to Command being most of them old 
experienced Soldiers. Its a great grief to their particular officers and no less 
to Myselfe, that wee were obliged to March into ye woods in such a Season 
when wee had not a rational prospect of doing Our Country Service. 

Four of my Soldiers Couming from Arrowsick the 22d instant One of them 
viz. George Cary fired his gun att a Tree and another of ye four called Sam'l. 
Stockbridge being up abreast with ye Tree Shot at (but three rods width

Glancing very Strangely did unhappily Kill the sd. Stockbridge. Upon view- 
ing the place and Examining the Other Soldiers present, 1 am fully Con- 
vinced that the fatal part of ye action was purely Accidental. However I 
have confin'd. ye man Slayer and pray your Honour will please to give Direc- 
tions in ye matter. 

I am your Most 

Humble Servant 

Johnson Harmon. 

Lieut.-Gov. Dummer's Reply. 

Boston, 8 March, 1722-23. 
Sir: 

I rec'd. your Letters by the Express with the other Papers; And I 
approve of your Proceedings, And think you have done the best you could for 
the Service. Since as you have sett forth the Openness of the Rivers and the 
Wetness of the Country rendered the Execution of my Ordrs for a March to 
Wedembesick and Norridgewock impracticable. I would have you repeat 
your Marches and Scoutings upon the Rivers as high as you can, And in 
other places most likely to find the Enemy, especially about the Grounds 
where the wounded Deer and Canoe were Seen, until furthers Orders, and 
not let the Men ly in Garrison any more than is necessary for their Refresh- 
ment. I am heartily sorry for the unhappy Disaster in the accidental Death 
of one of your people. I hope the Soldiers will be warned for the Time to 
come of such Carelessness and Folly. You must give strict Orders that no 
Guns be fired but at the Enemy, Unless by the Leave and in the Presence 
of an Officer. The Man Slayer must be tried by a Court Martial and I 
will in a Short time give out a Commission for that Purpose. In the mean 
time though you are to keep him under Restraint you need not be very rigor- 
ous and severe to him seeing you are fully convinced as you say that the Mis- 
chief was purely accidental. You have Liberty to come to Boston wn. Coll. 
Westbrook returns from his March taking leave of him. 

Col. Westbrook's Expedition to Norridgewock in Jan., 1722: The 
Indians learned of this expedition and left their village. Col. Johnson Har- 
mon was sent to Norridgewort with 120 men at the same time with Col. 
Westbrook and set out on the 6th day of Feb., but the rivers were so open 
and the ground so full of water that they could neither march on land or ice. 
Having reached however with great difficulty the upper falls of the Andros- 
coggin River (Lewiston) they divided into scouting parties and returned 
without seeing any of the enemy. (Pejepscot Papers Vol. 5). This expe- 
dition of Harmon's was by order of Col. Westbrook. 

In Scarboro in 1723, the Indians shot Serg't. Chubb, whom they mistook 
for Capt. Harmon, eleven bullets taking effect. 

Col. Westbrook in a number of letters written to Lieut.-Gov. Dummer 
in the spring of 1724, tells of the expeditions of Capt. Johnson Harmon and 
Lieut. John Harmon against the Indians about York. 

The destruction of the village fort, church, and a large number of the 
Norridgewock tribe was cruelly accomplished in Aug., 1724, but Col. West- 
brook was not present. It was done by four companies under Capts. John- 
son Harmon, Moulton, Bourne, and Bean. The Indians' priest, Raise' was 
the last one killed, but it was done contrary to orders of the commanding 
officer. Raise' with the Indian dead were scalped and these bloody trophies 
were paraded in the streets of Boston, with much triumph. Father Raise' 



142 THE HARMON GENEALOGY. 

was killed on Aug. 12, 1724, as Capt. Harmon arrived in Falmouth, on Aug. 
18. with the scalps. (See letter of Col. Westbrook below.) 

Falmouth. Aug. 18, 1724. 
May it please your honour: 

Capt. Harmon arrived this day with the Fryar's and 26 Scalps more from 
Norridgewock and brought Bombazee's Squaw and three more Indian Cap- 
tives, and retook three English boys. He Informs me a great number of 
L dians are coming on our frontier on Sunday from Canada, and Two Hundred 
from Penobscutt, for a further account I refer to him. They have taken Lt. 
Kenady's Coat at Norridgewock, who resided at Saint Georges, which makes 
me doubt they have taken the Garrison. I am sending Captn. Sanders in his 
Sloop strongly guarded to that place and am likewise dispatching orders to all 
the frontiers to be on strict guard. Capt. Harmon and the officers Judge 
that by the modeste Computation, besides the Scalps and Captives they 
brought in, what they killed and drounded these could not be less than thirty 
or fourty. God has now been pleased to Crown your Honour's unwearied 
Endeavors with success, which I desire to rejoice at. I hope your Honour will 
smile on Captn. Harmon and favour him with a Commission for a field 
Officer, I am your Honour's Most Dutiful. Humble Servant. 

Thos. Westbrook. 

I have Imprest Mr. Doke's Schooner to convey Captn. Harmon to Boston.

He d. Feb. 11, 1743, leaving no son. His dau., Elizabeth, m. Richard Wald- 
ron, of Portsmouth, on Dec. 31. 1718. She was b. Nov. 26, 1701. and was

Waldron. who was a captain in the Louisburg expedition in 1745 and d. 1785. 
Thos. Westbrook was an inhabitant of Falmouth in 1 727. and built a house at 
Stroudwater, the Harrow House.) 

Capt. Johnson Harmon and Capt. Jeremiah Moulton were two leaders 
and colonial soldiers. The latter, when a boy, could remember the sack of 
the town of York by the Indians, and his escape through the snow. Johnson 
Harmon had also passed through those trying days and his name had already 
become known and feared by the Indians. Together in the summer of 1724 
these men planned and led the third and only successful expedition against 
Norridgewock. They destroyed the Indian village and killed Father Raise', 
the French Catholic Missionary. The Harmons were an old and influential 
familv and their homes were on the shore of York river at the harbor. 

(The 250th Anniversary of York, 1902.) 

In the summer of 1724, Capt. Harmon and Capt. Jeremiah Moulton led 
the forces that captured Norridgewock. Whittier refers to it in, "Mog 
Megone" written in 1834: 

"For Bomazeen from Tacconock, 

Has sent his runners to Norridgewock, 

With tidings that Moulton and Harmon, of York 

Far up the river have come." 

"With Indian blood on his English sword ? 

Steals Harmon down from the sands of York, 

With hand of iron and foot of -cork?" 

The following account was taken from the Historv of Norridgewock, 
by Allen : 



THE SACO AND YORK, MAINE, BRANCH. 143 

An expedition was sent after the Norridgewock Indians, under command 
of Capt. Johnson Harmon, in Feb., 1723, which was unsuccessful. But on 
Aug. 23, 1724, 208 men under command of Capt. Harmon and Moulton, 
were sent to the headquarters of the warlike tribe. Proceeding up the Kennebec 
they landed at Winslow, left their boats with a guard at that place and then 
marched cautiously along the banks of the river. When they approached the 
enemy, the force was divided; a part making a circuit so as to enclose the 
village. Most of the Indian warriors were absent, probably in the fields, 
while destruction was about to fall on their wives and children. It was 
nearly noon when the unsuspicious natives were thus surrounded by their 
enemies. A few of the English exposed themselves to the Indians. A young 
Indian seeing them gave the alarm and rushed into the hut for a musket. 
The surprised villagers soon commenced to fire upon the intruders, but so 
precipitately that no damage was done. The English soldiers as they had been 
directed, reserved their fire until they were within pistol shot, when the 
slaughter of the savages was terrific. Their ranks were soon broken and they 
fled, only to meet the fire of the whites, who were advancing from above 
the village. Hemmed in on all sides, men, women, and children, rushed to 
the river and were shot down indiscriminately in the water. Father Raise', 
their priest, was among the killed. A monument to Raise' was erected on 
the spot where the church once stood, by Bishop Fenwick, of Boston, on 
Aug. 23, 1833. 

The New England Courant, of Aug. 24, 1724, gives the following: 
On Saturday last, Capt. Johnson Harmon arrived in Boston from his expe- 
dition against the Indians at Norridgewock, and brought with him 28 scalps, 
one of which was Father Raise's, their priest. 

The following was taken from the N. E. H. & G. Reg. Vol. 48 : His 
Honour, the Lt.-Governor, in consideration of the extraordinary service of 
Capt. Harmon, presented him with a commission for Lt. Colonel of his 
Majesty's Forces Eastward, under command of Col. Westbrook. Col. Har- 
mon made solemn oath that the 27 scalps of Indians, (which were produced in 
Council) were the scalps of Rebel or enemy Indians slain by him and his com- 
mand and that they had taken 4 Indian prisoners. 

The Manuscript Journal of Rev. William Holmes, of Chilmark, Cape 
Cod, dated Aug. 30, 1724, gives the following: 

The scalps of 28 of the Indians were brought to Boston, of which their 
Priest and Bomazeen's were two. After shooting and scalping the Indians 
and with two children as prisoners, Harmon and Moulton, with their whole 
force lodged in the Wigwams, keeping a guard of 40 men. They started on 
the return march, leaving the chapel and wigwams standing. Christian, a 
Mohawk Indian of Harmon's force, was sent or went back and set fire to the 
wigwams and the Church in the tower of which hung a bell. Of course all 
the buildings were destroyed and the village and cornfields were left deso- 
late. (Bomazeen was the Indian chief.) 

Col. Johnson Harmon was one of the signers of the Indian Articles at 
Casco Bay, in conference, July 25, 1727. He settled in Harpswell, Me., in 
1727. Joseph Harmon, prob. his son, settled in Harpswell, in 1741, both at 
Merriconeag Neck. 



144 THE HARMON GENEALOGY. 

In expressing his desire to take part in the Louisburg Expedition, Col. 
Johnson Harmon wrote to Col. William Pepperell, as follows: 

York, Feb. 6, 1744. 
To the Hon. William Pepperell, Esquire, Brigadier General at Kittery, per 

Capt. Beal. 
Honoured Sir: 

This waits on you with my duty, wishing you all the success and com- 
fort that prosperity can afford you, in the great trust reposed in you. May 
the conduct of Heaven always attend you in every scene of life. The Provi- 
dence of God, blessing Me with so good a measure of health and my inclination 
being strong to wait on you to Louisburg. I am persuaded there is something 
yet for me to do there before I leave the world. And as your smile is all I 
crave in order to my going with you, I shall look for my reward either in 
the coming world, if I am called off in the cause of my King and Country, 
or as you see I deserve if ever I return to New England. If you will favour 
me with a line in answer I Shall look upon it as a token of your regard. I beg 
leave, Honoured Sir, to Subscribe myself, 

Your dutiful humble servant, 

Johnson Harmon. 

(Col. Johnson Harmon had been in early life one of the most noted 
Indian fighters of the time and was associated with Col. Moulton in many of 
his expeditions. At the date of this letter to Col. Pepperell, he must have 
been well advanced in years. He evidently did not take part in the expedition 
to Louisburg, as his name does not appear in the register of Louisburg 
Soldiers.) 

CAPT. JOHN HARMON (John, James), b. about 1680, m. 1707, Mehit- 
able Parker, dau. of John and Sarah Parker, of York. Sarah Parker was a 
dau. of Nicholas Green. Mehitable and her sister, Hannah, were b. July 28, 
1684. Capt. Harmon was m. by Capt. Preble, in York. He fought the 
Indians about York with his brother, Col. Johnson Harmon. He was mod- 
erator and also first deacon of York, in 1731. He was captain of the 6th Co. 
1st Mass. Regt., in 1744-45, in the French war at Cape Breton. He settled 
in Sanford in 1754 and probably died there, and was one of the first settlers in 
Sanford, then Phillipstown. According to the proprietor's records of Phil- 
lipstown, John Harmon had lot No. 15, in a list of lots granted to settlers, 
Nov. 21, 1754. On Friday, Dec. 20, 1754, Capt. John Harmon was em- 
powered to dispose of the trees lying upon the ground.

York Records: 

Rev. Samuel Moody at the age of 23 arrived in York May 18, 1698, 
having just graduated from Harvard College. In 1710 it was decided to 
build a new Meeting House 50 feet square. It was here that John Harmon, 
Joseph Sayward, and Micum Mclntire and others were given, "ye hinde 
seat in our meeting house in ye Gallery Provided they fill it." Since these 
gentlemen were not filling a, "hinde seat," in civil affairs it is fair to assume 
that they were not under the ban of Father Moody. 

Father Moody d. Nov. 13, 1747, age 72, highly respected. The parson- 
age was burned in 1742, and all the records were lost. Joseph Holt, brother- 
in-law to John Harmon, was deacon in 1739. 

Capt. John Harmon, at Louisburg : 

When war was declared by France in March, 1744, and by Great Britain 
in April, and preparations by the government of Mass. were made for sending 
an expedition to Louisburg, Canada, the command of the expedition was given 
to Col. William Pepperell, who was then about 49 years old. Col. Jeremiah 
Moulton, of York, commanded the 3d Reg't. and Capt. John Harmon was in 
command of the 6th company, in the 1st Regt., which was commanded by Col. 
Pepperell. Benjamin Harmon was a lieutenant of 6th company. 

Col. William Vaughan, of the Louisburg campaign, in a letter, dated, 
Portsmouth, Feb. 8, 1744, to Hon. William Pepperell, Esq., at Kittery, 
writes: I hope Capt. Donnell will be appointed a Lieut. Col. and Elder 
Harmon a Major, as he (Harmon) was ye first man yt engaged with me in ye 
affair, even before Capt. Donnell came. I was lately at York and find the 
people exceedingly ready to go, but are in confusion on account of officers. 
(Elder Harmon was prob. Deacon Harmon and a brother of Col. Johnson 
Harmon.) 

The following was taken from a register of commissions in the Army, 
under command of Hon. William Pepperell, Esq., for an expedition against 
the French settlement on Cape Breton and at (Louisburg) : 

William Pepperell, Esq., Lieutenant General and Commander-in-Chief, 
date of commision, Jan. 31, 1745 from Governor Shirley.

ridgewock. Me., in 1724. Harmon and Jacques moved to Harpswell. Me.. 
in 1727. and later Jacques was mortally wounded by the Indians and died 
there. Great brutality is chargeable to the English in the Norridgewock 
affair according to their own account, such as killing women and children and 
scalping and mangling the body of Father Raise'.

eldest dau., the wife of Thomas Williams; Mary, wife of Nathaniel Harmon ; 
son-in-law, Nicholas Ide; and son, Nathaniel. In June 7, 1()4S, Nicholas

The records of Braintree concerning Nathaniel Harmon: In 1645 
Nathaniel Herman and 19 other inhabitants of Braintree, petitioned the court 
for liberty to begin a plantation where Gorton and his company had erected 
two or more houses at Shawemet, a part of Punhom's land, but they wire 
opposed. 

The sale of Dudatus Curtis' land to Thomas Barrit was dated, 4 mo. 1'), 
1651. The land contained 7 acres lying next to Thomas Burt on the west 
side, and next to the common on the south, next to Barnabas Derrifall on the 
north, and next to Nathaniel Herman on the east side. It was sold by .Martin 
Sanders and Francis Elliott, the owners. 

The records of Mendon, Mass., state: On May 5, 1662, "the committee 
for Nipmugg," met at Dorchester and made rules for conducting the settle- 
ment and admitting allotments of land to certain persons who wen- ordered 
to settle there before the end ot the 7th mo., 1663-4. These persons who re 
ceived the lands were mostly from Braintree, and included Nathaniel Herman. 
Nathaniel Herman had his grant renewed at Dedham, Mass., in 1663. He 
did not settle at Mendon, howeyer, as his name does not appear on the hooks.

mention of his name was in 1663, at Dedham. Ephraim Harmon, the son, 
was buried Aug. 27, 1683, at Rehoboth, Mass. Nathaniel probably returned
