There is no further information on the couple William and Ann, but there is a paragraph about William's parents, plus more information on their Harlan ancestors back to the 1600s in England.
The genealogy book, History and Genealogy of the Harlan Family by Alpheus Harlan, is available for purchase on the Harlan Web site under the link, Store. It was published in 1914 and has about 1,000 pages and over 10,000 entries.

Subject: Harlan Cousin Witnessed Kristallnacht
The late Robert Harlan, who retired to Freeport, Ill., after a 30-year diplomatic career, was a college exchange student in Germany in 1938 and saw firsthand the destruction caused by the infamous event known as Kristallnacht. As a result, he helped a Jewish couple who were among the victims, and he found them a way to escape.

I have been finding information on Defaw Talleyrand Fulton and Anna
Elizabeth Harlan who were the parents of Alvarado Emerson Fulton (Abbie,
buried in Waco, TX) who was my great grandmother and the mother of
my grandmother, Alice Effie Davis Post (Mrs. Fred Orville Post). In
many of the Harlan records Ive noticed that they have ggPost
listed as Addie and thats completely wrong even if it does seem
most likely. Abbie is the only name my grandmother had put on her

The above url (web address) is for DNA testing for families and I wonder if you have looked into this.
I have trouble getting my wife Sandy Harlan Cockriel to be interested in genealogy, but I keep trying to locate the father of George W. Harlan born Aug 18, 1838. I find him on an 1860 census in Logan Co Ohio living with his mother Ann, but no father listed.
Sandy is a descendent of this George W. Harlan, but we just can not seem to connect with any known Harlan's and I notice that there are a few Harlans on the DNA site, so was wondering if you could include something about this on your web page?
Perhaps the DNA data base would be able to help us. Can you ask about this at the Harlan Reunion?
I would appreciate what you could discover.

For the past 10 years I have been compiling "The Final Muster" Harlan Men in the Civil War. Since Reno, I've divided the book into state volumes. Still have tons of Harlan names that served but I've been unable to tie to the family.
If you had an ancestor who served on either side in the Civil War please email me the information you have and I'll take it from there.

Dear Harlan Family,

Hi All Harlan Cousins,
I came away with some questions that I hope some of you Harlan experts can answer.
Did George deed his house to his son James or his son Jacob? I have
found conflicting reference to both on the website. And are he and
his wife Elizabeth buried at Kennett Meeting or Centre

I know many of the Harlans have visited Sutton and the monuments in the local church commemorating this branch of the Harlan family. The Harlands (with a d) built and lived in Sutton Park for 200 years. I, as Chairman of the All Hallows Trust, a non-denominational organisation raising funds to preserve the church building have had the pleasure of meeting several of you on your visits. The Harlan Family organisation a few years ago made a generous donation towards our work. In the last year, we used this donation to commission a report on the condition of the wonderful set of Harland monuments by a leading expert.
This report has produced disturbing results. The Parochial Church Council (the PCC), advised by its architect, had been obliged in the last couple of days to rail off two of the monuments (the most attractive in my eyes) and these are to be taken down for safetys sake, and stored. If anyone wants to be sent a copy of the report (rather large!) by e-mail, with costings for repairs etc. or can help in any way, the Trust (and the community) would be very grateful. There is a great risk that the monuments will be taken down and stored indefinitely, which would be a great loss to the Family and this village.
Please e-mail me at djj3(at)btinternet.com if you wish to know more.
With best wishes for your work,

I am the great grand daughter of Donald Harlan born 02 Jan 1880 in Marrietta IL. He died in Fulton County, IL 24 April 1944. I know that his father was James McHenry Harlan born around 1843 in Fulton Co., IL. He died on 04 Jul 1926 in the same county. Here is my problem. I only know that James McHenry's grandfather was John McKinley Harlan. I don't know who his father is. I am doing the family history for me to understand my father's side a little better. If there is anyone who might be able to shed some light on the subject please e-mail me at blessedlife2(at)yahoo.com. I would appreciate any input..

I am trying to find the parents of my Hannah Harlan of Perry, Columbiana, Ohio. On the 1850 census she is the wife of Samuel Fawcett. It lists her with her children. On the 1860 census Samuel Fawcett has another wife. From our family tales she is Hannah Elizabeth Harlan born in 1820 in Pennsylvania. She is said to have died in 1855. (no proof) Her son Frank Brown Fawcett was born 5 Mar 1850 in Columbiana County, Ohio and was still there on the 1870 census. The family stories state that his father Samuel Sharp Fawcett locked him up to keep him from going to war. He migrated to Allen County, Kansas where he met and married Martha Catherine A. Armstrong the 30 July 1870 at Iola, Allen County, Kansas. He joined the 19th Kansas State Calvary and served in the Indian wars under Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer Fawcett (born 16 March 1871 in Allen County, Kansas. He was blinded in a dust storm so was not present at the famous Battle of the Big Horn. He returned to Kansas for his family and the came to South Dakota in a wagon train in about 1885. He moved to Newcastle, Wyoming. He raised his nine children. He died 17 January, 1937 at Newcastle, Weston County, Wyoming. His oldest daughter was Mary Lenore. She married Paul Kipping 25 October, 1897. They had 6 children. My Grandmother Emily Lenore Kipping was third of six children. She was born 14 September, 1902. She married Lawrence Walgren Gibbs 14 October, 1922 at Alliance, Nebraska. She had four children the oldest John Lawrence Gibbs was born 23 July 1923 on their homestead in Niobrara County, Wyoming. He met and married Mary Katherine Payne in Laramie, Wyoming while he was attending the Wyoming State University. He was training in communications. He served in the US Army in World War II in the Philippines in the radio corp. They had two daughters in Wyoming. I was born while my father was over seas in 1945. I would appreciate any help in finding out more about my Harlan family.

She married Hugh Laughlin b. 1715 in 1748 in Old Swedes Church in either Delaware or PA; they moved to Hillsboro North Carolina where he died in 1765 and left a will naming her as his wife. She was "the Widow Locklin/Laughlin" (source: Micajah BROOKS pension application RWS). He was "hired out to the Widow Laughlin" and sent to Ramsour's Mill about 1775-1776.
I am aware she moved to Tennessee where she died and is buried. I
would like to know the date she moved to TN and the date of her death.

Hi. I am looking for relatives of my great grandmother, Annie Harland ( who became Annie Creek) she was born c.1861 in England (we think) and came to Australia as a domestic servant. She married in Australia in 1885. I think she had around 8 children including my grandmother who was Doris Creek (Loder) We were told that she may have been disowned by her family for taking her sister's side in an argument but not really sure. Does anyone recognise any of these names?

I just stumbled upon this website this morning. I am researching my great-great-grandfather, Harlan McGrew, residing in Steubenville, Jefferson county, Ohio from 1870 or earlier, until at least 1911. I have no date of death or place of death. He was born somewhere in Ohio (June of 1850), and his parents were born in Ohio.
His children were named Nathan, Robert, James, Stella, Willard, Ella and Hazel (and possibly an older child not listed in the 1900 census).
Harlan is listed in the 1900 Steubenville census with wife Jane (possibly a.k.a. Virginia) and 7 of the children, but I can't find him in any earlier census record. Or any later one.
I do not know his parents names or history, but I would very much like to. The names I have found sound a lot like those in your Harland geneological tree, so I am hopeful that someone out there has heard of these people and that there is a connection, somehow.
Please let me know if anyone has any further information or clues.

I am researching family of Mary Dallas Williams who married Thomas P. Harlan in Jackson, TX, 16 March 1869. She is the half-sister of my GGF Samuel Ezell. I have had little success in tracing Mary’s and Samuel’s mother – Harriet/Harriett (1821-1890). Her maiden name appears to have been “Adkinson”. Discovering the marriage records of Mary and Thomas appears to indicate that Harriet’s first marriage was to a “Williams”. Mary Dallas married a John A. Rogers after the death of Thomas. She is buried in the Rogers section of the Harper Cemetery, Harper, Gillespie Co., TX, along with her son, Thomas P. Harlan. There is a section on the Harlan family in the “Here’s Harper Two – 1963-1986”. If anyone has information on the family history of Mary Dallas I would appreciate hearing from them.
Thank you, Catherine Ramsay Roberts
