- Born: Abt 1796, Würtemburg, Germany
From the History of Lycoming County, Pennsylvania, edited by John Meginness, 1892, page 1081:
"Frederick Harman was born in Würtemburg, Germany, in 1792, and immigrated with his two brothers, John and George, to the United States in 1808.
John settled in Mifflin township, Lycoming County, and George in Hepburn township, and both spent their lives in respective localities.
Frederick was a shoemaker by trade, but worked on a farm for a Mr. Lowmiller, who lived near Williamsport, for a number of years. He then settled at Block House, Tioga county, and cleared up a farm of seventy-five acres. About 1852 he purchased seventy-seven acres of land near the head of Tomb's run, in Watson township, Lycoming county, where he lived until 1880, and then made his home with his son Samuel until his death in 1885.
He married Susanna Hartman, who died in 1862. She was a native of Block House, Tioga county, and bore him 4 children: Margaret, wife of Jacob Hair; Elizabeth, wife of Christ Yetley of Iowa; Samuel of Piatt township, and John of Anthony township.
Mr. Harman was a Democrat, and was a member of the Evangelical church."
By the Census of 1850, George had 10 children, and was listed as a landowner. This George Harman is not to be confused with the George Harman of Clinton Township.
