Since I posted the original when I was brand new to all this, I am bumping it with (hopefully) better info that might catch someone's attention and give me a clue.
This is what I know so far:
My grandfather Jesse Daniel Harmon, son of George H. Harmon, who was son of Daniel/David Harmon.
I tracked from myself to Daniel/David fairly easily. The only info I have on him is from census reports, marriage record, etc.
He says he's born btw 1790-1801 Tennessee
One of his children's death certs says he's from Nashville
The earliest census I find that I am certain is him is the 1850 one because it lists George H. Harmon as his son. In 1850 he was living in District 2, Johnson County, Illinois.
He has a wife named Martha Eubanks Harmon, b. 1820. They married in 1847.
Three of the children listed, William, John, Nancy, would be
from another mother. They are too old to belong to Martha.
Children of Daniel/David and Martha :
Jesse J b. 1848
George H b. 1849
Louis A b. 1854
David b. 1856
Susan b. 1857
Hannah b. 1859
Mary b. 1862
Andrew J. b. 1866
Martha Alice b. 1870
Daniel/David died between 1870 when he was on the census and 1880 when Martha lists herself as a widow. They were in Bollinger County, Missouri. I can find no record of his death or burial.
With such common names and my novice abilities, i'm not sure where to go next. I just want to find out where he is from and who his parents are. Any suggestions, hints, or help would be greatly appreciated. I just cant imagine a man that had this many children doesn't have another descendant out there trying to figure this all out.
Thank you in advance.
