Dear Cynthia Rhoades, Director of Genealogy:
My grandfather on my mothers side was Wilbur Franklin Harlan,
born April 25, 1879, died June 30, 1959 in
The 1930 United States Census lists his name as Harland. How
could he be Harlan in 1879 and become Harland in 1930?

As to the spelling of your grandfathers last name being changed from Harlan to Harland that most likely was the doing of the person doing the census. I cant be sure, but know name spellings are misspelled at times like that. Im sure you can do some research and find more information. I looked the History and Genealogy of the Harlan Family but didnt find your grandfather listed. If I had information about the previous generation I could probably provide more help, but maybe you already have your line documented. If I can be of further help feel free to contact me.

My line is: #3 George Harlan; #8 Aaron; #36 Charity (md Joseph Hackney); #172 Aaron Hackney; #646 George Hackney (md second Hannah Gregg); George Hackney (b 1815); Frances V. Hackney (md Elmer Hackett); Winifred Hackett (md Elmer Hansen); Harriette V. Hansen (md Harry B. Christensen); Judith F. Christensen (md Peter Holtus).
The Harlan book it stops at George #646 while others' lines go much further. There is another George (#646's son) who was born in 1815 in
George, #646, supposedly married a woman by the name of Ellen Gomery. I have not found anything on a marriage. They had maybe 4-5 children of which George (b 1815) was one. I am at a brick wall with these Georges and have no positive proof, other than the 1843 marriage in
Thank you for your note. Fred Harlan is the person who maintains the Harlan
genealogy. I will forward your information to him to record. If he has further
questions Im sure he will contact you. It appears you either have or have
access to the Harlan Family History since you know the numbers of your line. I do
see in looking at the book that no more information is listed other than George #646 being
the child of Aaron and Hannah Gregg. If you have dates, etc. going forward with
George, Fred would really like to have that information. I am always amazed at what
a wonderful job

it's nice to hear from you Brian. Can
you tell me where your grandfather and great grandfather lived? They are pretty common names so would have to have
more specific information to begin a search. Do
you know when your grandfather was born or died? Or
the name of his wife? Our family history book only goes to about 1900 so searching later
requires more specific information. I
will look forward to hearing back from you.

I believe that Henry Eugene Harlan graduated from Vanderbilt University with a BA in 1882. I also believe that he was initiated in to the Beta Beta Chapter of Beta Theta Pi fraternity at Ole Miss in the fall of 1879. We believe that he was the sub rosa founder of the Beta Lambda Chapter of Beta Theta Pi at Vanderbilt University.
If anyone has any more information on Henry, please cont
Our office is trying to locate images of all the US Attorneys for Kentucky before the Commonwealth split into the eastern and western districts. James M. Harlan was a US attorney from 1861 to 1863 and father of John Harlan #2969. We have been unable to locate a picture or image and were hoping that you might be able to help us with this endeavor. The current US Attorney, Kerry B. Harvey would like to hang the 26 portraits in our office as recognition of their service to the United States. If you could help it would be greatly appreciated.
