Harmon Family of Chatham County NC

The Harmon family has been traced back to England in the 1600s, but The first ancestor for whom I have much information is George Harrison Harmon, who was born in Virginia in 1778, married Amelia Polk (1782-1824) of Accomack Co. VA in 1803. Sometime after Amelia's death, George is said to have married a woman named Jackie (?) Temple. Jackie is a very unusual name for a woman that early, and I would like to see more documentation for this.

George died in Chatham Co. NC in 1853.

Some on-line family trees give other names, and impossible dates.


My information on this family is a combination of census and marriage records, and on-line sources, from which I have chosen ones that seemed internally consistent and had documentation. Very little of this is my own research.
