      Generation No. 1


      1. LEONARD1 HARMON was born Abt. 1821 in Bledsoe County, TN, and died Abt. 1872 in Howell County, MO. He married (1) MARY UNKNOWN Abt. 1842 in Tennessee. He married (2) AILA MINERVA MATNEY 23 November 1858 in Oregon County, Missouri.

      Notes for LEONARD HARMON: Leonard was killed by night marauders in Missouri.

      Notes for AILA MINERVA MATNEY:

      There seems to be some question as to whether Minerva's last name was Matney or Batman; both families are well represented in Howell County, Missouri. "Batman" is the name given to me by Iva Harmon Click Stephens, her granddaughter. "Matney" is the name given on her marriage certificate. It is generally accepted that Minerva was at least 1/2 Cherokee Indian, tbat she was possibly the daughter of a Cherokee woman and an unknown soldier since she was born about 1834, at the time of the "Trail of Tears." After Leonard'd death, she married Isaac Green and had at least three children. According to her obituary, she died, blind, leaving a son and a daughter, also blind.


      Children of LEONARD HARMON and MARY UNKNOWN are:

      i. WILLIAM J.2 HARMON, b. Abt. 1843.

      2. ii. WILLIS BART HARMON, b. Abt. 1845.

      3. iii. SARAH SUSAN HARMON, b. Abt. 1850, Tennessee.

      4. iv. JACOB BYRD HARMON, b. February 1851, Howell County, MO; d. 22 February 1930, Fulton County, AR.
