      Pvt. Silas, a veteran of the War of 1812 along with his brother Major Joel Harmon, III.

      Our family name has been Harmon since the colonial days and it is still today. (Surname is Harman on tombstone). I suspect Silas may have changed his name from Harmon to Harman because there may have been a family spat; just my theory or he was a rebel perhaps. His father is my(4th great-grandfather) Joel Harmon, and his siblings spelled their name "Harmon". See family links and documents. The southern branch does spell their name Harman, and more research is needed to link these two branches.
