When I started in genealogy I had no idea that Harmon was such popular name or that it had so many diverse spellings. Harmon and Harman are the most common variations. The name originally derived from Germany as Herrmann. I am fortunate that I can say my Harmon line is one of the furthest I have. I do not have many photos now, but I am hoping to meet some people who would like to contribute theirs. It seems that there is some controversy going on about the father of Abraham. Some say it is indeed Mattias and Elizabeth, other's say his father was Jacob. I do not have the answer. I acquired this information from my uncle, Carl Harmon, who acquired a lot of his information from Dr. Roger Harmon, who was trying to put a book of our family together. He has passed away, and I am not sure who has the information now.

If you are a descendant of Isaac Harmon (born 1810) please contact me!
There is a photo of him and it is missing!
