PRl':i'AL"E. 

Tliis book hail iN lx\^iniiin<^ in the Fall of 1881. I made a visit in September 
of that year to several of my father's eonsins * in ortler to learn from them some- 
thini,"- of the life and history of my i^reat-j:;Tand father Harlan. I knew little of ni\ 
ancestors at that time, but found there several old letters and records which 
containeil much that 1 had wanted to know. It became my desire, then, to trace 
my own line back to an immigrant ancestor, and, later, to set down in permanent 
form all that could be learned concerning the family. That desire of so long ago 
has culminated in the present volume. 

Xo one, uidess he has attempted a similar task, can have an adetpiate con- 
ception of the work thus involved. There were seventeen children born to (ieorge 
and Michael llarlan. ()f Deborah, the third daughter of Cieorge, we know little 
mure than that she married one Joshua Calvert ; further trace of the family ha^ 
been lo>t. Solomon, the lifth son of Michael, died unmarried. So it remained 
to follow the subsequent history of fifteen families, and though some of the line- 
are indeed inccjmplete, most of them will be found to be well developed. 

In 1887, two hundred years after George and Michael had come to America, 
the family assembled at Birmingham Park, near Philailelphia. There thev effected 
a permanent organization which was named " The Association of the Descendants 
of George and Michael Marian in the United States." It has held fourteen 
reunions, some of the most imijortant of which have been at Richmond, lud., 1SS8 ; 
West Chester, Pa., 1897; Alt. Pleasant, Iowa. 1899; Union City, lud., 1900. and 
again at Richmond in nju. It has been the means whereby members of the family 
have learned to know and to keep in touch with each other, and it has been of great 
assistance in the i)rej)aration of the jjresent work. 

The information herein contained has been gathered from many sources. Old 
wills, marriage certificates, Friends' Meeting records, newspapers, and hundreds 
of letter^ h.ave been read and reread in order to obtain from them some informa- 
tion which would be of use. Often one name has been the means of bringing 
together many families, and often one letter has opened a field requiring months 
of work to fully explore. 



\I PRRFACIl. 

The coinpiliiiq' of this history has been to nic from tlic first a hibor of love 
and of fascination and a wori-c that I could not lay aside. I have been aided in it . 
by countless relatives and friends, and to all of them, though many have long since 
passed away, my heartfelt gratitude must be expressed. 

After a third of a century of almost continuous endeavor, I am handing this 

work to my people for their approval. I do it with the earnest prayer that the 

present and future generations shall strive hard to uphold the standards of 

Christianity as set uj) and maintained by their forefathers. 

Alpheus H. Harl.^n.

FA'PLANATIOXS. 

Tlie personal history of each iiuliviikial is !^i\'en in connection with his appear- 
ance as tlie head of a family. Historical matter is printed in larj^e type. The 
arrangement is hv fjenerations, and l}y their numbers the children of one generation 
may be found as j>arents in the next. In the later Lienerations this is not always true. 
The generation to which each individual belongs is indicated by the small figure 
attached to the name, counting Thomas, George and Michael Harlan of the third. 

Abbreviations : b. for born ; d. for died ; m. for marrietl ; unm. for unmarried : 
em. for emigrated ; bur. for buried ; dau. for daughter ; b. g. for burying ground : 
Mo. for month ; Twp. for townshiji ; Co. for county. 

Dates are given in the order of month, day and year, and the numerical system 
is almost universally used, this l)eing most convenient, besides conforming to usage 
of l-'riends. 

'Idle Province of rennsyhania. on " the 7"' day of y*-' 10"' mo. 16S2." passed an 
act " that V" Days of ^''■ Week and Y" Months of Y" Yeare shall be called as in 
Scripture & not by Heathen names, . . . and beginning with Y" Day called Sunday 
and Y" Month called March." This was followed 28 years later by an act providing 
" that all Deeds, Conveyances, Mortgages. Hills, Charter-Parties, . . . wherein 
the Names of the Months arc called First, Second, Third and Fourth, instead of 
March, April, Mav, lune, and so of the rest, always accounting the Alonth called 
March to be the tlrst .Ahjiith of the year ... to be as good and valid ... as if 
the Months in such \\'ritlngs had been set down and expressed by their usual 
names."' 

In 1 75 1, the English Parliament decreed that the year should begin ujion the 
first day of January, so .March thereafter was the third instead of the first month. 

In this book, therefore, the early dates are given as they were written at the 
time, and the reader will observe that in many instances, between the first day of 
January and the twenty-fifth day of ^larch, two dates are given, thus: 1723-24. 
The reason is clear: while the ecclesiastical year began on the twenty-fifth day of 
March, the historical year began on the first day of January, and it is to be under- 
stood that it is 1723 by the former and 1724 by the latter computation.

HISTORY AND GENEALOGY OF THE HARLAN FAMILY. 



JAMES HARLAND, Yeoman and member of the Episcopal Church, was b. 
about the year 1625 in the " Bishoprick, nigh Durham, England," and is the 
earliest paternal ancestor known to the family in America bearing the name 
Harlan. He lived and d. an Englishman, and was bur. upon English soil, no one 
to-day knows where. Tradition says that the name of his father was William. 

That James Harland was married according to the usages of the Established 
Churcli there is no doubt. That his children were baptized and recorded therein 
is fully estal)lished by the fact that tlie earliest record we have of his son, George, 
is that he was " Baptised at the Monastery of Monkwearmouth * in Oald Eng- 
land."' \Ve have no record giving the name of the wife and mother. So far as 
known, James Harland was the father of three sons: 

2. Thomas, b. • — — ; d. ; m. Katherine Bullock and Alice Foster. 

3. George, b. ; d. , 1714 ; m. Elizabeth Duck. 

4. Michael, b. ; d. , 1729; m. Dinah Dixon. 

2. Thomas Harland^ (James,- William^), Yeoman, Friend, b. " Nigh Dur- 
ham, in Bishoprick, England," where he remained until early manhood, when with 
his brotliers and others he crossed over into Ireland and located in the Parish of 
Donnahlong, County Down. It is supposed that he remained there during life, 
and that he was buried in the burying grounds at Lurgan Meeting House, County 
Armagh. He m. 2, 7, 1680, by ceremony of Friends at Lurgan Meeting, held then 
" at the house of Francis Robson," in the ]\arish of Sogo, County Armagh, 

Katherine Bullock (Friend), b. , d. 3 Mo. 1690, County Down, a dau. of 

George Bullock, of the Parish of Donnahlong. They were the parents of one son, 
Ananias, and of four daughters, Rebecca, Patience, Christian and Katherine. 

Thomas Harland m. second, 11, 8, 1702, Ailice ffoster, of " Lisnegarvy, at 
Richard Boyes house, Ballinderry Meeting, County of Armagh." They were the 
parents of two sons, James and Thomas, and of one dau., Abigail. 

* Monkwearmouth Monastery was founded by Benedict Biscop in the year A. D. 672. It 
is situated in a town of the same name in the east division of Chester, County Durham, and 
one-half mile north of Sunderland. It receives its name from its location near the mouth of 
the river Wear. Burned and plundered time and attain, only the tower and sfmie detached 
parts of the church remain of the once celebrated monastery. In 1790 the parish registers, 
with the exception of some of the late records, were destroyed by fire, and it is very probable 
that information of untold value to us perished in the flames. 



2 THE HARLAN FAMILY. 

We fiiul the names of Geort^e ITarlaiul, Alplionsus Kirk, etc., anionj^ the signers 
to Thomas Harland's first marriage certificate, but it seems that this brother did 
not venture to cast his lot in the new world. So far as we can learn he remained 
in Ireland; we find his descendants, some fifty years later, crossing into Penn- 
sylvania, and settling in Chester County. The further line of Thomas Harland, 
obtained too late to be inserted here, will be found given in the appendix. 

3. George Harlan^ (James,- William ^), Yeoman, " Ye sone of James Har- 
land of Monkwcarmouth, was L3aptised at the Monastery of Monkwearmouth in 
Oald England, ye nth Day of First Month 1650." He was b. " Nigh Durham in 
Bishoprick, England," and remained there until he reached manhood, when, in com- 
pany with his brother and others, he crossed into Ireland and located in the County 
of Down. While residing there he m. by ceremony of Friends, 9, 17, 1678, Eliza- 
beth Duck, George Harlan * brought his family to America in 1687, ^"d the nine 
years intervening were without doubt spent in the above-named parish and county, 
and there, too, in all probability, his first four children were born. He d. in " Fifth 
Month " (July), 1714, and was buried beside his " dcare wife in the new burying 
grounds on Alphonsus Kirk's land," which was afterwards, and is yet. Center 
Meeting Burying Grounds. George and Elizabeth were the parents of nine 
children : 

5. Ezekiel, b. 6, 16, 1679; d. 4, 15, 1731 ; m. Mary Bezer and Ruth Buffington. 

6. Hannah, b. 2, 4, 1681 ; d. ; m. Samuel HoUingsworth. 

7. Moses, b. 12, 20, 1683 ; d. 1747 ; m. Margaret Ray. 

8. Aaron, b. 10, 24, 1685 ; d. 9 Mo. 1732 ; m. Sarah Heald. 

9. Rebecca, b. 8, 17, 1688; d. 8, 17, 1775; m. William Webb. 

10. Deborah, b. 8, 28, 1C90; d. ; m. Joshua Calvert. 

11. James, b. 8, 19, 1692; d. ; m. Elizabeth . 

12. Elizabeth, b. 8, 9, 1694; d. ; m. Joseph Robinson. 

13. Joshua, b. II, 15, 1696; d. 5 Mo. 1744; m. Mary Ileald. 

t George Harland, of Parish of Donahlong, Co. Down, Ireland, and Elizabeth Duck, of 
Lurgan, Parish of Siiankill, Co. Armagh, were married " at the house of Marke Wright in 
ye Parish of Shankill," 9 Mo. 17, 1678.

GEORGE HARLAN. 3 

No certificate of the membership of George HarLiiul with Friends is upon 
record, but his marriage certificate shows us that at that time he was a member, and 
as early as " Tenth Month" (December), of 1687, he was placed upon committees 
of responsibility in Friends' Affairs in his new neighborhood. At the time of his 
residence in Ireland, William Penn was urging Friends of England to become 
settlers upon his lands, cautioning them, however, against " leaving their own 
country out of idle curiosity or of a rambling disposition." I'ut names signed above 
we find later in the new world, and, as we have seen, George was buried upon 
"Alplionsus Kirk's land." So they were not without friends when they made their 
settlement near the Delaware. 

In the early months of the year 1687, in company with his wife and four 
children, and his brother Michael, then unmarried, he took ship at Belfast for 
America. They had bought lands before coming * which were within that part of 
the Province of Pennsylvania now embraced in the County of New Castle. 
Ascending the river Delaware they landed at the town of New Castle (now in 
Delaware State), and settled near the present town of Centreville. Plere the elder 
brother remained for some years, and about 1698/99, having purchased higher up 
tlie Brandywine Creek, he moved his family and settled in what is now f Penns- 
bury Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania.

Sent thee the Coppy of his Will on the other side. ... I was with him in time of his Sickness 
and he being about to make his will I put him in mind of his Relations in Ireland and his 
answer was thus he had never Received any Letter Since he had been in the Countrie from any 
of them Replying further he had been troublesom to his friends in his Life time & Question-

♦ From the old warrants granted " within the County of New Castle, on Delaware," we 
learn that "George Harland " and "James & Thomas Harlin" purchased lands there in the 
summer of i68fi, and that "James Harland" did likewise in January of 1701. 

t It was then in Kennett, but later the township was subdivided.

♦ 

\\'hile living in Kennet f Township (now Pennsbury), George Harlan had for 
neigh].)ors a settlement of Indians who lived in the " Great Bend " of the Brandy- 
wine. After they had gone he obtained, in l/Oi, a warrant for 200 acres of land in 
the bend, which was granted to him " in regard for the great trouble and charge 
he had borne in fencing and maintaining the same for said Indians while living 
thereon." 

We find his name amon<i the signers of the return for a road laid out in the 
winter of 1704-5. This road ran " from the fork of the Brandywine, in Alice 
Vestal's land " to a white oak " standing by y^ road from George Harlands to 
Neman's Creek Mill." 

* The name is variously spelled Dixon, Dixson, Dickson, etc. Judging from the manner 
in which the testator disposed of his estate, leads one to conclude that he was a relative of the 
family. We have no evidence that William Dixon and Ann Gregg had a daughter Elizabeth, 
or that Din:di Dixon, the wife of ^.lichael Harlan, No. 4, and her brother, William, had a 
sister, Elizabeth. It is very probable, therefore, that this "Elizabeth Dickson" was the 
mother cjf Dinah Harlan, and perhaps a widow in 1604, 'in'l residing with her daughter. 
William Dixon's land warrant bounds his property upon the east by lands of Thomas Child. 
The latter is probably the plantation mentioned in the above will. 

t The spelling of the name will be found to vary in this volume. It is generally 
spelled with two " t's," but the original spelling on the old court records was with one " t," and 
it is spelled in England in the same way, both on early and modern maps. — Euthey and Cope's 
History of Chester County, Pennsylvania. 



GEORGE HARLAN. 5 

George Harlan first bcloiii^ed to Newark Moctint;, but after his removal up the 
Brandywine and westward, he was too remote from this meetiny for punctual 
attendance, especially in the winter, and at a request of himself and others, a meet- 
ing " beyond Brandywine " was established. From the Monthly Meeting records 
of Center Meeting, as the meeting was called, we read: "This meeting appoints 
George Harlan, Thomas Hollingsworth, Alphonsus Kirk, & Samuel Groves, to 
take y" oversight of y" building of y" Centre ^ileeting House requesting y"' with all 
convenient speed to let out y" work to some workmen in order y' it may more 
speedly done & return an acctt to y" next meeting how they proceed." The deed for 
the land had been conveyed by Ali)honsus Kirk, while yet a member of Newark, 
to John Craig, Samuel Groves and John Richardson. The consideration was 
il2, 5s. 

George Harlan soon became one of the foremost citizens of the colony. He 
had been one of the provincial governors of the " three lower counties," now the 
state of Delaware, in 1695, and was a member of the Colonial Assembly in 1712. 
His colleagues in the latter were Caleb Pusey, David Lloyd, William Davis, John 
Baker, Nathaniel Newlin, Nicholas Fairlamb, John Wood, Isaac Taylor and John 
Maris. 

Upon the first day of March, 1713, he deeded 203 acres to his son-in-law, 
William Webb, for a consideration of 30 pounds. On the ninth day of the same 
month, " in consideration of the Natural Affection & fatherly love which he hath " 
and also " for divers other good causes and valuable considerations," he deeded 
200 acres each to his sons James and Joshua. 

George Harlan died in " Fifth Month " (July), 1714. The date of the death 
of his wife is unknown, but in his will he requests that he be buried beside his 
" deare wife in the new burying grounds."

The B.mlv Family. — Joel Baily is supposed to have come from Wiltshire, England. 
One among the early purchasers of land in the Province of Pennsylvania was a Daniel Baily, 
who resided in Westbrook, in the parish of Bromham, Wiltshire. He was by trade and occu- 
pation a weaver, and in 1681 purchased a warrant for 125 acres of land in the Colony of 
William Penn, which was subsequently located in Birmingliam Township, Chester County. 
He never came to America, but one Joel Baily, who was probably a near relative of his, 
appears to have been concerned in tiie sale of this land in 1713 to one William Radlcy. Joel 
Baily and Ann Siiort were married in Chester County, and resided on laiuls which were partly 
in Middletown and partly in Aston (now in Delaware County). In 1704/5 he removed to

15. Abigail Harlan'' (Michael,^ James ^), b. 9, 23, 1692, in the Province of 
Pennsylvania, (now in) New Castle Co., Del. .She removed with her parents into 
Kennet Twp., and afterwards into London Grove. She m. 12, 17, 1724/5, in 
Friends' Meeting at London Grove Meeting Llouse, Richard Flower (Friend, 
farmer) ; !). it is supposed in Leicestershire, England; d. about 1748, in London 
Grove Twp. ; bur. in Friends' Burying Grounds at New Garden Meeting House ; a 
son of Richard and Mary Flower, of Leicestershire, England. Abigail, " his widow 
survived him many years, and died very suddenly witliout sickness, and was buried 
at New Garden." 

Richard and Abigail settled upon lands in London Grove Twp., that were 
afterwards willed to her by her father, the clause reading: " I Give & Bequeath to 
my son-in-law, Richard Flower & his Heirs forever that part of said Tract upon 
y* Branch of Elk River that he Dwelleth upon." 

It is quite probable that Richard and Abigail settled first in Kennet Twp. The 
records of Kennet Meeting, " informs " that Abigail Llarlan took certificate to 
New Garden, 6, 30, 1729. They had issue:

Among the records of Trinity (Old .Swedes) Church, Wilmington, Del., is to 
be found the following: "January 12 Anno D. 1753: Thomas Buffington and 
Mary Harlan, L." If this refers to the above Mary Carter Harlan it means that 
she m. at that old church by Episcopal ceremony (having first procured a license), 
her second husband, Thomas Buffington. 

The Carter Fa.mily. — Edwin Carter, of Aston, Parish of Bampton, Oxfordshire, Eng- 
land, came to the Province of Pennsylvania in i68j, and settled in Aston Township, Chester 
County. His wife's name was Margaret. They had an only son, Robert, who m. Lydia

16), 1720. 

The will of Thomas Harlan was proven Feb. 27, 1745/6. An inventory of his estate, 
appraised Dec. 19, 1755, by James Few and Richard Flower, values his belongings at 
£292, i6» 11^. 

17. Stephen Harlan* (Michael,* James ^), yeoman, Friend, b. 2, 16, 1697, 
in New Castle Co., (now in) State of Delaware; d. about 2 Mo., 1732, in Newlin 
Twp. ; bur. in Friends' Burying Grounds at Bradford Meeting House. He removed 
about the year 1700 with his parents into Chester Co., Pa., settling in Kennet Twp.

further record. 

87. Stephen, b. 1730; d. 8 Mo., 1810; m. Deborah (Woodward) Strode, 

12,22, 1759. 

Hannah after her marriage carried a certificate of membership from Chester 
Monthly Meeting to Bradford Monthly Meeting dated 3 Mo., 1725, which points 
to the fact that she was at one time a resident of that part of Chester, now Dela- 
ware Co., and the home at one time of the Carter family, before their removal into 
Marlborough Twp. 

Stephen Harlan, in 1724, purchased a farm of 320 acres lying in Bradford and 
Newlin Twps., of which 300 acres was in the former. The price was one pound 
per acre. A further consideration was a " Quit Rent " of one English shilling 
per hundred acres, or the value thereof " in the Coyne current here." 

Letters of administration were granted to his widow about April 8, 1733, he 
having d. intestate. His estate of 290 acres, the houses, improvements and personal 
property amounted to £402 s. 2. Among the personal property were two servants 
who were to be released at the expiration of their time. In 1741 a certificate was 
granted for Hannah and her children to Philadelphia ]\Ionthly IMeeting. The 
records of this meeting say : " Hannah Harlan & children from Bradford Monthly 
Meeting Chester County, Pennsylvania, by certificate dated 6 Mo. 20, 1741. Her 
daughter Hannah is particularly mentioned as free from marriage engagements." 

There is no record to be found showing when and where Hannah Harlan d. 
She was present in Kennet Meeting (1749) at the marriage of her dau. Hannah, 
but there is nothing after that date to be found concerning her. 

18. Michael Harlan* (Michael,^ James ^), farmer, miller, Friend, b. 2, 7, 
1699, in the Co. of New Castle, (now in) the State of Delaware. He removed with 
his parents, while yet a small boy, into Chester Co., Pa., and settled with them in

FOURTH GENERATION. 25 

Michael Harlan, subseciucnt to his marria.qc, removed to and settled in I.ondon 
Grove Twp. on a farm, u])on a part of which he erected a stone flouring- mill. He 
(1. there in 1757, and was buried at Lonilon Grove I\Teetin,cf House. Parts of the 
old stone dwcllinj^ and the stone mill, situated between the borrou^hs of Chatham 
and West Grove are yet standing", as also the mill-race, conveyint,^ the water to the 
mill, were built and constructed by him now more than 140 years ago. There is 
no record found that would give the date and place of death of the wife, but the 
supposition is that she too d. there, and was bur. at London Grove Meeting House. 

The records of "Old" Kennet Meeting informs that Michael Harlan, made 
an acknowledgment for marrying out of unity with Friends, to one who was also 
a member, but the records seem silent as to what the result was. Chester Monthly 
Meeting- records of 4, 26, 1725, informs that: Hannah Maris, dau. of John and 
Susanna Maris, was disowned for "marrying- out," to Michael Harlan. 

As the births of their children were not recorded in meeting the presumption 
is that they were not again in membership with Friends. 

Michael Harlan dying intestate, his brother David Harlan was made his 
administrator, 11, 30, 1757. 

The Maris Family. — George and Alice Maris came from Worcestershire, England, and 
settled in that portion of Chester County, now in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, in 1683. 
His certificate from Friends' Meeting bore date of 3 Mo., 16S3, and was from " Att Hadeswell 
In y« Pish of Inksborroujih and County of Worcester." They became members of Darby 
Meeting. Issue: (i) Alice, b. 8, 17, 1660; m. Jacob Simcox, "of Ridley," 11, 15, 1684. (ii) 
George, b. 10, 2, 1662; m, Jane Maddox, " dau. of Henry," 1690. (iii) Elizabeth, b. 2, 3, 1665;

19. Solomon Harlan^ (Michael,^ James =*), b. 10, 7, 1701 ; d. 2 Mo., 1732; 
unm. Solomon Harlan was probably b. in the Province of Pennsylvania, in that 
part which is now Delaware. He was a well-to-do farmer. In his will he 
bequeaths to his brother James his farm of 230 acres. He made his mark at the 
signature, and as he was then only 30 years of age, it is probable that he was 
poorly educated in the art of writing. We only know that Dinah Harlan, his 
mother, was alive at the time of writing, as he wills that his brother, James, keep 
his mother her lifetime. 

" An Inventory of the Goods & Chatties of Solomon Harlan late of London Grove, 
Deceased. Filed i8th of 9th month 1732," appraised by John Strodd [Strode] and Jer. Starr, 
values the total estate at £339.

26 THE HARLAN FAMILY. 

England. James Harlan, who was h. and rcareti in Kennet, was the first of his 
father's family b. in Pennsylvania. At the time of liis marriage he was a member 
of Kennet Meeting, and was probably residing in that township, although his 
father and family were mostly residing in London Grove. His father in his will 
mentions him thus : " Item. I Give &- licqucalh to my son James Harlan & his 
Heirs forever that Tract of Land ui)on Octoraro Creek being four hundred acres 
in all " ; but it does not appear that he was residing upon it at the time of his mar- 
riage. He settled upon it and d. there. His wife having d. some years prior to

sonal property as follows : To his brother Solomon 10 shillings. To his sister Ann

Solomon 10 shillings. And: " Item. I Give & Bequeath unto my sister Susanna 
all the remainder of my personal Estate, to be paid to her within one year after my 
decease." His personal estate was apj-)raised by Richard Flower (No. yy), and 
David Harlan (No. 88), October 16, 1769, at £25 s. 18. p. 14. His landed interests 
as mentioned in his will was disposed of as found in the records of his brother 
Henry Harlan, No. 97.

Benjamin Harlan, and read them to him, who approved of them and desired that they might 
be put in form for they were his Will. Minutes are now Produced by him and hereto annexed. 
He believes and is sure they are the very same he took at sea at the desire of the said Benja- 
min Harlan, and the reason why this affirmant did not draw the said Benjamin Harlan's Will 
in form immediatly, was that he expected he was getting better of his disorder, but that he 
dyed the third day after this affirmant received his Instructions, and further this affirmant venly 
believes that the said Benjamin Harlan at the time he ordered the Minutes to be taken to Draw 
his Will by he was of sound mind & memory and for two days after to the best of his knowl-

him and found him shot through the thigh and bleeding rapidly. As soon as Uncle

From the papers of William Harlan (No. 833), a grandson of the above 
George Harlan : " I once saw amongst the papers of Stephen Harlan [No. 49] an 
account of George Harlan being baptized at Mount Yarmouth, in Old hjigland, 
date not recalled; from there he and his wife Deborah moved into Ireland; Irom 
there to .America. The account gave the name ... of James, who . . . was my 
grandfather. [He was his great grandfather.] My connections in my grand- 
mother's line were of Welsh descent. I saw . . . my father's grandmother. She 
was very old and I think blind. She lived on Licking Creek, Washington Co., Md. 
My father's mother was Ann Hunt. My mother's father was William Porterfield, 
born in the County of Donegal, Ireland. Her mother's name was Martha Alex- 
ander, born in Ireland, but came to America with her parents when but three years 
old. William I'orterfield had seven sons and two daughters : Charles, Jonah, John, 
William, Alexander, Mathew, George, Rachel, and Mary, my mother. Charles 
was killed by the Indians on Opequan Creek, now in P.erkeley Co., W. Va., when 
my mother was a child. Jonah settled upon New River in Virginia. John moved to 
Carolina. The others all remained in i'erkeley Co., Va. My grandfather died in 
his 74th year. William lived to be an old man, and died since I left Virginia. 
George died last year [1842] in the 87th year of his age." 

46. James Harlan'' (James,'' George-'), farmer, b. July 20, 1721, Kennet 
Tw])., Chester Co., Pa. ; d. about 1800, in the Eastern part of Kentucky ; bur. there. 
He m. while yet a resident of Kennet, and about the year 1749, a woman not in mem- 
bershi]) with bViends. For so doing he m;ule an acknowledgment to Kennet 
Monthly Meeting, 6, 5, 1749, and thus retained his membership. The maiden 
name of his wife is unknown, but from the records of " Old " Kennet Meeting it 
is reasoned that her death occurred between the years 1750 and 1753. Her burial 
was at " Old " Kennet. Issue :

FIFTH CFNERATION. 41 

In 1762, James flarlaii, then residini^- in I-'rcdcrick Co., Va., returned tc 
Clicster Co., and on Jidy i, 1762, m. at Moly Trinity (Old Swedes) Church, Wil- 
nn"nL;lon, l^el., Dinah Harlan (Davis) (Xo. 70), a dan. of- Gcors^e Harlan and 
Mary I'.aily (.Stewart), and a widow of i\(jl)crt Havis, to whom she was m. in 3 Mo., 
1740. 'I'licy returneil to ]''rcdcricd< Co., \a., and later moved to h'astern Ken- 
tucky, wliere l\ol)ert d. His wdl speaks of childien, not named. James and Dinah 
had no issue. 

'I'here was an incident in the life of James Harlan that is worthy of record. 
It was his violation of the h'riends' disciiiline hv the erection of i^rave stones at the 
,L;rave of his first wife. \o stones were allowed; each of these old h. l;. was 
]4atted, and the ])l;it was carefully ])reservetl hy the clerk of the meeting-. It is 
presumed that, contemplatins.^- his removal to Frederick Co., Va., he placed the 
stones so that the grave would not be lost to him. The matter came up at Kennet 
Monthly fleeting, 3, i, 1760, when "James Harlan requests a certificate to Hope- 
well Monthly Meeting, and William Lewis and William Harvey are appointed a 
committee to enquire," etc. Kennet Monthly Meeting, 4, 17, 1760: " The Friends 
report there is some obstructions against James Harlan's certificate, so is left under 
their care till the next meeting." The matter was continued from meeting to meet- 
ing till 7, 14, 1760, "The committee report that they removed the grave stones." 
Kennet Monthly ^Meeting, 1,15, 1761 : " James Harlan being here at this time and 
appearing dissatisfied with Friends for removing y" grave stones he sett up at his 
wifes grave tho' advised to the contrary which was the obstruction to his certifi- 
cate being allowed and his charging and blaming Friends therefore we can have 
no further unity with him initil by giving heed to y" dictates of truth in his own 
heart he satisfies Friends for his disorders which is our desire that he may." This 
he refused to do, and at the same meeting was disowned. Kennet IMonthly Meet- 
ing: "James Harlan declares by letter his intention to take an appeal to the 
Quarterly IMeeting." But there is no account of it, and it is presumed that he let the 
matter drop. 

To-dav, in the b. g. of " Old " Kennet Meeting House, there are a number of 
neat marble grave stones standing as silent witnesses of the cause for which James 
Harlan contended. 

48. Jacob Harlan •' (James,'' George •"*), farmer, FTiend, b. " the last of ninth 
month 1725," in Kennet Twj)., Chester Co., Pa.; d. at Harlan Station, in Lincoln 
(now in Mercer) Co., Ky., some years after the close of the Revolutionary War. 
In 1744 his parents obtained a certificate to Hopewell Monthly Meeting, and it is 
])robable that Jacob Harlan accomixinied them. We have no account of his wife; 
it is jirobable that she was bur. at Tuscararo JNIeeting House, Frederick Co., Va., 
before the husband and children left for Kentucky. Issue:

The Me.ndk.niiall Family. — This family has, in all probability been called upun oftener 
by the Harlan Family for husbands and wives than any other family in America. The com- 
piler feels quite sure that the index of this book will, next to the Harlan' name, show a greater 
number of the name of Mendenhall than tliat of any other of the many hundreds that the 
Harlan iianit- has intermarried with since its arrival in this Country.

Solomon Harlan, in 1772, was disowned by Friends at New (larden Meeting, 
he havini^ fallen a victim to the habit so common in those days, that of " drinkini;" to 
excess." 

New Garden IMonlhly Meeting, 6, 3, 1786: " Mary Harlan wife of Solomon 
asked for a certificate to Nottingham [Monthly Meeting] for herself and children, 
Joseph, John, David, Ann, George, and Lewis." 

Nottingham Monthly Meeting, 7, 29, 1786: " Mary Harlan produced a cer- 
tificate from New Garden Monthly INTeeting for herself and six children, Joseph, 
John, David, Ann, George, & Lewis Llarlan. This certificate was dulv received." 

J'"rom these records it appears that Solomon and Mary, with their family, 
removed into Cecil Co., Md., about the year 1786. Ihey remaiiieil there during life. 

James Harlan, in his will, says: " I Give S: Devise to my son Solomon Harlan, 
all my plantation I now live on Containing Two hundred & Ten acres more or less,

70 THE HARLAN UAMII.Y. 

" A ccilificalo bcint;- prcparctl for I'.iioch Harlan it is ajiprovcd and siL;iK-(l l)y 
the clerk and divers others." 

When iMiocli and Edith em. to North Carolina they settled in Kandoliih Co. 
Enoch Harlan rented a saw mill and was operatint;- it when taken sick. He was 
both a cooper and a wagonmaker, and a good scholar for that ilay ; was (jnite an 
astronomer, that is, he knew as much as was known at that lime. His death was 
due to typhus fever, and he d. in the 49th year of his aL;e. 

In the year i8o<j Edith Harlan and her children had established themselves in 
the Northwest territory, in what is now Clinton Co., Ohio. Her sister, I'^lizabeth 
Harvey (she, too, a widow) and her children were also living in the same neigh- 
borhood. They had left behintl them the graves of their husbands and many 
near and dear kindred with whom they had parted forever, ami realized that it 
was true when the last sad farewells were spoken. A reference to the family 
record of Nathaniel and Ann Carter will aid in determining who a number of 
them were, and the letters now following will allow us of this day and age to see 
and know and feel that grief which was caused by these separations. From the 
tone of Solomon Harlan's letters the lands belonging to the father's estate hail not 
been sold at the time Edith and her children left there, and it seems that .Solomon 
and. David had returned to that " tar off country " i)erhaps to dispose of them and 
settle up all outstanding mailers. 

Ijcfore the mother came to Ohio different members of her family had been 
out to Kentucky and the territory northwest of the ( )hio River on prospecting tours. 
William and Jonathan had riiklen as far west :is the great shed sei)arating the 
Miami rivers, where they spent sometime with (ieorge Harlan ( .\'o. 672) and his 
wife Esther, and a part of their family. They had known each other in North 
Carolina, the latter having gone from that state to Fayette Co., Pa., and from there 
to Ohio, settling in then Hamilton, now in Warren Co. From there they turned 
back, and William at least returned to his home in North Carolina.

" I take this opportunity to write and let you know that I am well and do not expect to be

very well. A more agreeable company never travelled together; we always had plenty for our

At the time this letter was written the exodus had already bequn. William 
had em. with his family toward the Norlli, and had made a tcmiiorary halt in 
Mason Co., Ky. His brothers, Jonathan and Nathaniel, were both there, but unm. 
Nathan hatl been and probably was yet in that counlv, and ^)a^■id had been there, 
but h;td returned to his mother's home in North Carolina. I'rom the tone of 
Jonathan's letter all were di.scouraqed and ahuost ready to return to their home. 
It was not long', however, that tliis condition of things remained. There must have 
been other letters passed that were not jM^eserved, for Williaiu that same year took 
his " four horse team" and went back to North Carolina and brotight his mother, 
his brothers, John an<l F.noch, and his sisters, Rebecca and Hannah, to Mason Co., 
Ky., and then with his faiuily into Ohio, stopping for the winter in what is now 
Highland Co., and the next spring bringing them and his family into what is now 
Clinton Co., where they settled and inade a permanent home. They were located 
there when the following letter was received :

originally purchased from ^Villianl Penn by Richard Hands of Swarford, in the County of 
Oxon, England. On u (Jan.) 28, 1705, he olHained another warrant for 484 acres, the 
remainder, deducting liberty land near the city of Philadelphia. By virtue of the first warrant 
he took 384 acres on the West Branch of the Brandy wine, just South of the present borrough 
of Coatesville, and the following year 600 acres were surveyed for him, including the present 
site of Unionville. He afterwards obtained several hun<lred acres extending from the last 
tract to the north-east corner of East Marlborough, and received his patent Nov. 25, 1717, 
for 1100 acres in this township. He was an active citizen; a Justice of the Peace, and of the

"Till' lirollicr Andrew was a man of L;reat i)iety, and of indoniitalile conrago, and energy 
of cliaracler, and also in possession of consideral)le means, lie purcliased large tracts of land, 
lying on both sides of the Octoraro [Creek], and shortly after the arrival built the first mill in 
the southwest, near Peningtonsvilie, in Chester county; the old remains of which are yet 
visablc [1872]. 

" Although his residence was on the Chester county side, his improvements extended 
into both counties. He erected another mill on the west side of the creek, and other substantial 
buildings, some of which are yet standing [1872]. 

"He was chiefly instrumental in establishing the Friends' Meeting House, at 'Old' 
Sadsbury in 172.1. and his descendants sat at the head of that meeting for upwards of one 
lunidred years.*

the coming of his brother .Andrew. He built tlie first ^ihrist mill, on the Brandywine Creek, 
before the year 1718, irom which a public road led to Philadeliihia, called the 'King's 
Highway.' 

"At a council held at Philadelphia, May 20, 1718, a petition of several of the inhabitants 
of near Conestago, was presented, Mtiing forth the great necessity of a road to he laid out 
from Conestago to Thomas Moore's .Mill, on the Brandywine; and the board having taken 
said petition into consideration, appointed Kzekicl Harlan [No. 5], Isaac Taylor, John Cart- 
lidge, Thomas Moore, Joseph Cloud [of I'equa], and William Marsh to lay out said road, and 
make report thereof to tlie Hoard in order to be confirmed."!

cousin to George Harlan (No. 220), in a letter to the compiler in 1891, saitl in 
speaking of him: " Mother said that uncle Harlan was a splendid swimmer. She 
used to tell about him and another man being pursued bv the Indians at one time. 
They were not far from a river, and the Indians were fast gaining upon them, so 
fast indeed that he told his companion that the only chance for their lives would 
be to swim the river. His companion could not swim, and begged him to save him 
but he could not and save his own life too. So when they reached the water he 
sprang in and dived, the Indians all the time shooting at him when he would come to 
the surface. He would remain under the water as long as he could, and the Indians 
shooting in the direction he dived. He at last reached the land in safety, but his 
companion was killed."

The nei.LihIiorhood to which Jesse 1 larlan moved in \ior-an L'o.. \ a., was then 
thinly settled. Where he lived we are UM that the nionniains came ne.ir to the 
river's eil.^e on both sides, and that it was rather an midesiralik- ])lace. Jesse I larlan 
was unfortunate. ] le tirst built a powder luill, which proved tn be a failure. He then 
built a saw mill. Water was his motive power, and it seems thai he did not build 
his dams in the proper manner, for every sprini;- freshet would wash them out. .\t 
the time of his death he was badly in debt, and his son Aaron, by buildini^' i)roperly, 
put the lumber business in order and paid off the father's debt. The son was a

JM-om the Ira.^nients of a j\)urnal keiH by him thnm-h the L;realer jarl of the 
last ([uarter of a century of his life, an.l from " what motlier has told u>," two thm-s 
of importance have been -leaned. The tirst is. that he w;is entirely \\ ilhout hearhig- 
in the last years of his life, and th.al all communication with him was In- writniL;- 
and makinsi' si,<;ns. That he had not ;dways been so is ai)i.aient from the fact that 
a portion of his life was si)ent as a soldier in the .\merican Army in tlie War tor 
Independence, as will api-ear later on in this memoir, lie iirall his wntni-s, so far 
found, -ave no exi)lanation of it. The .second is, that while he had been at one 
time m.. his wife had Ion- been d. The com])iler is forced to .say that he has no 
information as to who site was. where she was b.. where she d., or where she was 
bur. In all his writin-s tliere is nothing;- concernin.^' her. She w;is deceased prior 
to iSjC), ;md li:id lieen for matiy years. She h:id borne him at least two chddren : 
a son and a dau. The fcjrmer h;i<l (b in childhood, the latter, who while then livins' 
was somewhere beyon.l his linancial ability to -o to her. notwithstandin,^- his 
uftimes repeate<l desire so to do. This desire extends throu-h all the pa-es of 
this now yellow old jotirnal, and yet he never speaks of her as m. or unm. His 
relations on iioth sides oi his family were numerous and were scattered from 
X'ir^inia. throu-h Ohio. IndiaiKi. Illinois. Missouri, Kentucky. Tennessee and 
Alabama. 

Reason Rawlin-s Harlan was by tra-lc a harness and saddle maker, and in the 
last 25 years of his life was itinerate in his ch;iracter and habits, th.al is, he spent his 
days .n-oint;- from home to home anion- his kinspeople, workin- when it jileased 
him to <lo >o, and tlience on to another, as he felt the desire. He was industrious 
and ener-etic, an<l was the best contented when diligently employed or when 
readin- some ,L;ood bo^.k. He was for his day and time and opportunities a well 
educated man: the wrilin-s in his journal bearin- out this assertion. A -reat 
reader, he spent many hours re;idinL;- and cnjoyin- the writers of bisiory and 
reli-ious works. AiKlwhile by birlh-ri-ht a member of the Society of ITiends, his 
old a-e found him a member of the .Methodist F4)iscopa1 Churcli. .\nd :i-ain, 
while his birth iilace h.id been in a slave st:ite, and his people resided llirou-hout

mail)' instances, lie was lU'wiilu-less an eariu'sl and (Uilspokcii anii-slavcry man 
liiniscif, and this and !iy his having;' iho failh of his convidions quite frccjucnily 
made his wrlcome cold and his slay sliort hv his remarks iijiun that siil)ject. 

At some time and place in his life he liad heen made a Master Mason, hut he 
oidy refers to it in one or two ])laces in his writings. In one instance he mentions 
that wliile travelling through the city of Baltimore, Md., the hrethrcn, unsolicited 
on his i)art, made him a very substantial donation in money, which gave him great 
hap])incss and caused him to record some very pleasant remarks aliout them in 
tliis old journal. 

]\eas()n I\. Harlan was a Rawlings u])on his niotlier's side. He \vas a great 
grandson of William Ixawlings, one of four brothers, William, Aaron, John anti 
Jehosophat, who came from luigland ]Mior to I.(jrd I'altimore, and settled in 
Maryland, not far from where Anna])olis now stands. The name of his grand- 
father is not certainly known — it was probably K'eason Kawlings, for whom 
Reason, the younger, was named. 

In 1826, Reason R. Harlan was visiting at the home of .Sarah Harlan, the 
widow of James Harlan (\o. -'16), in I^>oyle Co., Ky. While there he was induced 
to write an account of the early history of the Harlan family. The following was 
left at the " old homesteatl ", and a cop\- sent to the comjjiler. " At that time there 
being a great persecution of the pjcople called Quakers, and the family being of 
that denomination they were in great danger. I'our brothers concluded to come 
to Pennsylvania, ;uid lelt all their property in ^'armouth and took ship at Liverpool, 
bound for ^Vmerica. The eldest two had families; the others were single. They 
were as follows: (ieorge, .Michael, Henry, and James." 

" Soon after they had put to sea a storm came on which wrecked the vessel so 
luuch indeed, that they were obliged to jjut back to land, and being nearest to 
Ireland, landed there. James, the youngest, was so terrified that he would not 
enter again, but stayed in Ireland. The other three came to America and settled 
in Pennsylvania on the Delaware River." 

" .M ichacl's family mostly went to New York. I low many sons he had I do not 
know. Henry died childless. We are all of George's branch, who had six sons. 
. . . The l.ames of Salt River, Kentucky, is of Cieorge's family. The two i\letho- 
dist i)reachers, John and llarton, of I'.arrcn Co., | Ky.] are of John's family. 
I That is, John, the grandson of (leorge, the eUler.] . . . The Harlans of Ohio 
are of Yarmouth George's family." 

The above is not all accurate, but the writings of Reason R. Harlan have on 
the whole been a great aid in the compilation of this history.

TiiK W(Miij\v.\ui) Fa.milv. — Richard Woodward, the founder of the family, purchased, I 
(March), 6, 1687, from John Sinicox, a tract of land containin;j; two hundred and- thirty acres, 
in Thornhury Twp., Oicstcr Co., Pa., as appears by later deeds. 

John .Simcox had purchased from William Penn, before leaving England, five thousand 
acres in Pennsylvania, and of this one tliousand three hundred and fifty were laid out in one 
tract, in the western part of Thornhury, in the year 1684. Upon this part Richard Woodward 
settled and some of his children were b. there. In those days deeds were acknowledged in open 
court, and a note thereof made by the clerk. 

" December 4th. 1688, — John Simcox made over a deed dated ' y« 6th day of y" 1st month 
1687,' for two hundred and tliirty acres of land lying in Thornhury, unto Richard Woodward, 
by his attorney, John Hodskins (Iloskins). 

"August (6th month) 1689: 'Ordered that Richard Woodwaril be sujiervisor of y^ 
High \\'ays for y" township of Thornhury for y" next ensuing yeare.' " 

Riciiard Woodward, II, was probably b. in England, as he was of marriageble age in 
1695. He m. Esther Davis, they having declared their intentions at Concord Monthly Meeting, 
I, II, and 3, 13, 169s, but the marriage certificate was never recorded. Richard obtained from 
his father, Dec. 10, 1698, one hundred and thirty acres of land in Thornhury, and afterwards 
purchased from Jacob, a son of John Simcox, one liundred acres more, by deed of September 
9, 1708. His first wife dying, he m. Deborah Stanfield, a dau. of Francis and Grace, who 
came from Garten, in Cheshire, in the " Endeavor," of London, arriving 7, 29, 168.^. Deborah 
was probably the mother of most of his cliildren.

134 THE HARLAN FAMILY. 

By deed of lease and release, dated May -!3 and 24, 172J,, he and his wife, Deborali, cdii- 
vej'ed 222 acres in Tliornbury to GcorKc Townscnd, of Oyster Bay, Long Island, New York, 
and by a deed of June 3, 1724, he obtained one thousand acres in what is now West Bradford 
Twp., the soutli and east borders of the tract now forniin^ tlie soutii and cast lines of the 
township, it being the southeast corner of said townshii). 

Tiiis tract was patented Dec. 8, i6(p, to Daniel Smith, of Marlboro, in Wiltshire, England, 
from whom it descended to his grandson, John Smith, son of Daniel Smith, Jr. The deed is 
still in existence, well preserved, and in the possession of George Martin, of Marshalton. It 
is too lengthy to insert a copy of it here in full, there having been greater exactness in the 
description of land in the early days than at present, but the following is a part: 

" This Indenture tripartrite made this third day of June in the fourth year of the Reign 
of Our Sovereign Lord George of Great Britian France & Ireland, King, the Defender of the 
Faith Anno Dom. 1724, between John Smith, of London, in the Kingdom of Great Britian of 
the first part, Thomas Chalkley of the city of Philadelphia in the province of Pennsylvania, of 
the second part, and Richard Woodward of the county of Chester the third part yeoman. 
Whereas Samuel Carpenter, William Markham, Robert Turney, and John Goodson, the 
former commissioners of William Penn, Esq., late proprietor of s" province by a certain grant 
or patent under the hands & seal of the said province bearing date on or about the 8th day of 
December .-\no Dom 1690 for the consideration therein named did grant and convey unto Daniel 
Smith formerly of Marlborough in the county of Wiltshire, a certain tract or parcel of land 
situate lying and being in the said county of Chester beginning at a black oak being a corner 
of Thomas Langharns land, thence east northeast by the same land four hundred poles to a 
corner, thence north northwest four hundred perches to a corner, thence west southwest four 
hundred perches to a corner, thence southeast four hundred perches to the iiiace of beginning 
containing one thousand acres to hold him the said Daniel Smith his heirs or assigns forever 
he paying thereto the property or his heirs at or upon the first day of Alarch in every year at 
the town of Chester, and English silver shilling or value thereof in coyn currency for each one 
hundred acres of said land to such person or persons as may be appointed to receive the 
same, &c." 

Upon their removal to their new purchase they obtained the following certificate from 
the Monthly Meeting of Concord to that of Newark : 

" From our Monthly Meeting held at Chechester the second day of y" 9th montii 1724, 
to the Monthly Meeting of Newark, sendeth Greeting. Whereas Richard Woodward, his wife 
and family late of Thornbury being removed and settled within the verge of your meeting 
having requested of us a certificate in order to be joyned to you. This may therefore Certify 
you that they have been of an orderly life and conversation and diligent in keeping to meetings 
and as for their worldly affairs they are settled to a general satisfaction as far as we can 
understand so we recommend them to your christian care. Earnestly desiring their groth and 
prosperity in the blessed truih in which we remain your friends Brcthern and sisters.

"John r.aird, horn in Scotland about the year 1730, was an officer in the 
British Army. He crossed the Atlantic Ocean witli General Braddock in 1755. He 
married Catherine McLean, or McClean, in Philadelphia, and lost his life at 
' Grant's ]'"ort,' near the now city of Pittsburg, Pa., after the defeat of General 
I'raddock. His widow, who is supposed to have had relatives in that neighbor- 
hood, made her home near Kennet Square, Chester Co., Pa., and it is believed sup- 
])0rtcd herself by teaching, while her son grew up and studied medicine." * 

" Absalom Baird was commissioned Surgeon, March 20, 1782, in Colonel 
jeduthan Baldwin's Regiment of Artificers of Pennsylvania. This corps as it was 
called at first, was raised by the directions of General Washington, in the summer 
of 1777. Benjamin Flower, formerly Commissary of Military Stores of the Flying 
Camp in 1776, was made Colonel, and Commissary of Military Stores. Captain 
Jesse Roe's company was one of the original companies. Companies were stationed 
at Carlisle, and Philadelphia, and their duties were to cast cannon, bore guns, and 
prepare ammunition for the army." f

Sir: — I have completed the draft required by your orders of the 21st May, and wish to 
know whether it will be proper to employ them for guarding the frontiers, if it should be 
necessary, or call the other Militia to that service. I had made a draft to march to Presqu' 
Isle, and the men has rendezvoused before your orders to Countermand it arrived. 

The suspension of the law for laying out the town on the lake has created considerable 
uneasiness in tiie Country, especially since the people are convinced that the Northern Indians 
are hostility disposed. Our frontiers have been hitherto safe, and Captain Seals has exerted 
himself much to prevent any ap[)rihcnsion of Danger. He has a fine Company and well dis- 
ciplined. 

I am with great respect.

had a birthright amongst us the people called Quakers, but not duly regarding the 
Grace of God in his heart he has almost wholly neglected the attendance of our 
meetings, attending diversions and consenting to have his name entered as a Light 
Horseman, for which libertine conduct he has been tenderly dealt with in order 
for his restitution, but our endeavors not having the desired etTect we hereby testify 
that the said Jeremiah Harlan hath no longer a right of membership amongst us,

'I'liK .Srr.Mi' I'AMn.v.— Joliii Stump and his wife ^[ary were Prussians of wealth and 
culture, wlio em. from Prussia to Maryland about the year 1700. The name of his European 
ancestors is said to have been si)ellcd Stumpf. John Stump was a cousin of Baron Irederick 
vou der I'renck itlie younger of tlie two famous kinsmen of that name), who lluured con- 
spicuously durins the reign of Frederick the Great. John Stump purchased a large tract of 
land, near the present town of Pcrryville, Cecil Co., Md., where he d. 1747, having divided his 
properly between his only surviving children, John and Henry. 

In 1751 Henry Stump removed to the valley of Deer Creek (then a part of Baltimore 
Co.), where he imrchased the "Walnut Dale Farm," which has ever since remained in the 
lamib' ; it now ( 1S87) belonging to his grandson Dr. David Harlan [No. I35,s]. He resided on 
this farm until his de.lth, and with his brother John was bur. in the family b. g., which they 
established there. 

Henry Stump m. about the year 1755, Rachel Perkins, of Baltimore, Md., some of whose 
ancestors arc said to have come over in the Mayflower. Very little is known of her family. 
Three of her brothers — Reuben, William, and Elihu — were residents of what is now Harford 
Co., Md., and in 1772/3 Reuben Stinnp bought of one Thomas Miller 200 acres of land, which 
he sold two years afterwards, and removed to "Ten Mile Creek." Reuben Perkins owned a 
tract of land on Sus(iuehaima, bearing the unfathomable name of " F.ight Rap" (which might 
well be taken for, " A trap," to catch the unwary philologist), on which Lapidum now stands.* 

John Stump (John) was a merchant, and the owner of a number of mills in Baltimore, 
Virginia, and Harford Co., Md. By the extensive business in which he was engaged and the 
numerous commercial ventures, he acquired a fortune which was immense for those days — 
his property shortly after his death being valued at $1,317,000. An interesting episode of his 
career was the building of a vessel at Rock Run, Harford Co., Md., in 1803, as this was 
probably the only ocean-going vessel ever built there. He called the vessel " Hetty," in honor

of Ilis cousin Esther, daii. of his uncle, Henry Stinnp, who three years before had m. Jeremiah 
Harlan [No. 356]. The "Hetty" was a fleet, staunch little craft. She was mostly em))loyed 
in the West Indian trade, and by the large returns she lirought her owner well repaid his 
exceptional enterprise in building her. Esther Harlan was present at the launching of her 
namesake and herself performed the act of christening her. As the vessel glideil into the water, 
she broke a bottle of wine over her bow and uttered this couplet: 
" b^roni rocks and sands, and enemies' hands, 
May God preserve thee, Hetty."

" As early as 1795. journals of travelling Friends indicate that there was quite 
a settlement of Friends in Half Moon. 

" The name of Wilson is mentioned among others. As early as 1800, a house 
of worship was erected. Conspicuously prominent among the promotors of the 
church enterprise were Thomas Downing, George Wilson, Caleb Way, Isaac 
Moore, John Spencer, Thomas Moore. Descendants of these people are still among 
the leading spirits of the organization, which has enjoyed an uninterrupted and 
prosperous history since its foundation. There is in existence a Meeting Book, 
which records the deaths, and marriages performed among the Quakers of Half 
Moon A'alley, and it bears date in the beginning of 1804." *

" Another attempt having been made by the Committee to visit Joseph Harlan, 
without success, they have prei)ared a Testimony, having informed him thereof by 
letter, which is approved antl signed." 

Nottingham Monthly Meeting, 7, 29, 1797: 

"The Committee in the case of Josej)!! Harlan, having attended to their 
appointment, now offer a testimony which is approved and signed. 

" Whereas Joseph Harlan, a son of Solomon Harlan, had a right of member- 
ship amongst the people called Quakers, l)ut for want of attention to the manifesta- 
tions of Divine Grace in his heart, which would have preserved him from error, 
gave way to unwatchfulness, and a lukewarmness in disposition so much as to 
neglect the attendance of our religious meetings, and has also married a woman not 
professing with us, by the assistance of a hireling minister. 

" We therefore after endeavoring to convince him of his weakness, do testify

the company, and in 1799 was jml in command of the entire rei^iment. lie 
resigned his command in 1807. lie was a member of the lirst Ceneral .Assembly of 
the state of Tennessee, and was chosen (Alarch, 1796) lo bear the constitution to 
congress. About the same year he was elected a member of the Senate and held 
that position until iSi 1. 

In the summer of 1815, Joseph McMinn was elected to the governorship of 
Tennessee, and the following September n.ioved to Nashville, the capital. Mis 
public life was always a very busy one: he s])cnt the entire winter of 1820 in the 
city of Washington. He clcjsed his puidic service at the exiiiration of his term of 
office, Sept. 27, 1 82 1. 

Toseph McMiim had only one child. He and his first wife raised Hetty, the

His ■• brother RoIkmI's oldest son of full age " also lived with him, though whether 
as a boy is unknown. Joseph was at one time tavernkeeper, and farmer of about 
100 acres of land. His estate was very valuable, anf! he was the owner of a score 
of negro slaves.

1814 and died on 11 January 1815. On the same died a yount,' negro man whom I had raised

176 THE HARLAN FAMILY. 

(lie. Jenny my only child on the first day of I'Vbruaiy same year, leaving not quite three 
weeks between lier and lier stepmother's death. My family of black iicoi)le, twelve in nnniher, 
all lying sick at the same time, some siieecliless and nearly all senseless. .\s tlie ^rown ones 
afterward told mc, they knew nothing of the sickness and death of their mistress nor fellow 
servants who died. During the whole of these scenes it pleased (kkI to continue me in jierfect 
health . . . without the slightest change. 

Upon the return of spring my family began to recover, which invigorated my body and 
mind, and having lost considerable by breaking uj) house on the death of my ln>l wife, I 
determined not to fall into the same snare again, and commenced a very large crop of corn, 
and resumed housekeeping without a single soul to assist me e.xcept my negroes, to whom 
... it pleased (Jod to bestow a very liberal share of good health. 

I wished to spend the balance of my days in retirement. But to my utter astonishment 
on the 6th of July, a very lengthly address was handed me from a large and respectable class 
of my fellow citi/ens soliciting me to olTcr for fiovcrnor of Tennessee. Having been fre- 
quently eluded for leaving my country's service, I thought I would give my name, and did so 
and wonderful to tell I was elected in twenty six days after receiving the address alhuled to, 
without having the wish or expectation of being elected. 

In answer to this please give me the latest and best accounts of our people to whom I 
wish to be remembered in the language of friendship, and to each of your family in particular. 
Please answer this on receipt and be assured of a constant correspondence. 

Your affectionate brother, 

JoSKl'tl McMiNN. 
I have not paid the postage,* as I know that letters are more fre(|uently attended to when 
not paid. When you address your letter to me do it as follows. 

Joseph McMinn 

Governor of the State of Tennessee, 

Knoxville. 

New C.\nton, Hawkins County, Tennessee. 
4 January 1823. 
Di-ar Brother & Sister. 

Your very nuich esteemed letter of 2 of September 1821 came to hand by due course of 
mail and would have been answered long since had not a variety of causes combined to pre- 
vent it being done, hirst I was in a day or two of retiring frotn the office of Governor when 
your letter came to hand, which I had held during the period prescribed by the Constitution 
of tlie state, and secondly I enjoyed a very delicate state of health and had to travel 275 miles 
to my residence where I arrived on the 19 November iSji. 

I am truly sorry to hear the situation of Uncle George and Aunt Sarah, who have both 
witnessed better times, and indeed it always fdls my heart with sympathy to see or hear that 
any portion of my fellow beings are spending the evenings of their lives in poverty and dis- 
tress . . . tho the charge lies at the door of by far the greater part of those afflicted, nor does 
He withhold from any the means of providing a comfortable sujiport. 

I have on a former occasion t advised you of my marriage to third wife and now I have 
the painful task of stating to you that we are separated, by her resolving to remain in Nash- 
ville with her relatives instead of coming to this place; upon which I returned her every 
article of property which came into my hands by marriage, and gave her $2000.00 out of my

own estate. . . . Inimoiliatcly upon my arrival here I applied to one of John iMcMinn"s 
(lau);liters (Hetty liy name) wlio was raised by my first wife and myself, her mother liaving 
died when this yonng woman was but a few days old, and since which time she has kept house 
for me and is a line promising girl, and if she continues to please me until my deatli or some 
other change takes place ... I have proposed to make her more deeply interested in my 
estate than any of her cousins. 

My brother Robert's oldest sou of full age lives with me but he is not well calculated to 
live and conduct so large a business as mine ... if your son Robert or any of your children, 
married or unmarried, think proper to come here, I will place them upon the same footing as 
Hetty my niece stands, and give a share of the proceeds of the farm, or standing wages as 
they might ciioose. I live in a very public place and keep a tavern lor the accomodation of 
travellers and also a grocery for purchasing supplies for the house, and am making money 
pretty fast, hard as the times are. I cultivate about lOO acres of land, and have about twenty 
negroes. 

In conclusion ... as we cannot have the pleasure of conversing face to face, let lis avail 
ourselves of the next best opportunity of writing to each other. . . . riixo my Ime to your 
family and relatives . . . whilst I remain your atTectionate Hrother,

Tin: Co.NUis l'\\.Mn.v.— Among the earliest pioneers into Kentucky, from North Caro- 
lina were Stephen Coml.s and his wife P.arhara Allen. From the best information obtainable, 
Stephen Combs an<l wife liad gone from Loudoun Co., Va., into North Carolina, and from 
there into Lincoln Co., Ky. At that time Lincoln was one of the few counties mto which 
the state was divided. His going into Lincoln, was prior to the birth of his youngest child, 
or in 1793. There is but little that could be found about Stephen Combs. His birth is given 
as lliat of 1750, but of the wife Barbara, no date was given the compiler. It is presumed

Reason R. Harlan (No. 229) visited these people in 1829, while en route on 
horselKtck from Wheeling', (now in) W. \a.. to C'ineinnati. He says, in his 
journal : 

" Fehruary 6th, 1829 : . . . I find that T am within ten miles of Paniel I larlan's 

family. 

" l'"el)ruary 7th, 1829: . . . This morning I am starting to the widow Har- 
lan's. . . . Came to Solomon Rriiden's, and saw young Daniel, and James, hut 
jehu and Samuel, live at Sandusky, 30 miles from here. This is in Richland 
countv, ten miles from .Mansfield, the county seat. 

" I-\-l)ruary 8th, i82<): I am with Solomon, and his dear wife, and tine l.amily. 
Klizaheth will come to see me. 

"February 9th, 1829: At Solomon Braden's, and exjiect to stay some time. 
.... Yesterday, Joseph Bault, and Betsey, came to see me, an<l 1 was truly glad 
to sec them. She is a beautiful woman, and has a nice child. 

" I'ebruary 22nd, 1829: This is the Sabbath, and Solomon, ;nid his wife, and I. 
are starting to Sandusky, in the sleigh, to see Samuel and Jehu. 

" I'A-bruary 23d. 1829: I am at Jehu Ilarlan's, near Sandusky, and am well 
pleased with him and his wife, and Samuel and his. They have good farms, and 
the most timber on it I ever saw. They live within 6 miles from the ])lace where 
Colonel Crawfortl was burneil. They live on the head waters of the Scioto River. 
Samuel has one child, and Jehu has three. 

•• i'ebruary 24th, 1829: .'\t Samuel Harlan's, and we are about to start home. 
The snow is falling, and the weather is cold. 

" i-'ebruary 25th, 1829: At Solomon Braden's, and it is well that we came 
home when we did. It changed to rain in the night, and the snow is almost gone. 

" ,\l)ril 5th, i82(;; This is the Sabbath. I am i)reiiared to start, and must 
leave these dear relations, to see them no more until the Ressurcclion. . . . Came 
to Man>field, led my m.ire, aiiil got the direction to Mount X'enion, in Knox 
county." 

The compiler has carefully read the old journal, wherein he speaks of his 
visit to these i)eople, and fails to find any mention made of his meeting with the 
widow of Daniel Harlan, though it is said that she d. in 1831, or about two years 
after this visit. She probably d. earlier than 1831, and was deceased at the time 
he was there.
