In answer to your questions regarding Marian Harmon.

Yes, Marian Harmon was a person

There absolutely no evidence anywhere that is viable that she married Jonathan Chaffee.

Experience Bliss was Jonathan & "unknown wife's" child.

Yes, she married Nathaniel Chaffee, the son of Thomas Chaffee who so far is the one who started the Chaffee Heritage. You either came from Nathaniel Chaffee or his brother Joseph Chaffee, unless you came from a Chaffee who came from England after the early 1600's.

Don't worry about Rachel(Bliss) it's a longer story.

Do you care?? Depends on whether you want to do proven genealogy or whether you want to take the mistakes from other family historians and those who have copied those mistakes for generations. Whether you care or not is your question, not mine....it's your choice. Many people in genealogy care to get things corrected.
